Relinquish The Rut

Daily Draw: Greenwood Tarot ~ Hermit

In the Greenwood the Hermit follows Death, signifying a time to rebuild after being reduced to nothing but bone.

I'm reminded by this card, when forced by circumstances we can rebuild ourselves, yet day to day in the norm, we moan and complain about the baggage we surround ourselves with. If we can reclaim our good, we can leave the bad. We can break out of the rut, run from the comfort zone.

"If a hermit lives in a state of ecstasy, his lack of comfort becomes the height of comfort. He must relinquish it." ~ Jean Maurice Eugène Clément Cocteau 1889–1963

  1. I can definitely agree with your assessment and we all need to be reminded that we can "reclaim our good" from day to day.


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
