The Hermit & 4 of Swords
“Meditate and follow your guides”
Today the message is quite clear; you should seek solitude and follow your inner guidance. The Hermit represents the search for meaning and understanding. He seeks guidance with within himself; he is the archetype for solitude, hermit is very literal in meaning. The 4 of Swords only reinforces The Hermit, the 4 of Swords shows the drawing in and away from others to seek rest, meditation and understanding. Side by side reading as one image, it looks like The Hermit is trying to find the man in the 4 of Swords. The footprints in The Hermit appear to walk into the 4 of Swords. The man is waiting patiently for the arrival of his mentor or guide. This may suggest that you may be waiting for someone to come and offer assistance. You may be meditating waiting for your sprit guide to come and offer guidance. Either way today you are seeking guidance, passively waiting for it.
