Two Hermits, crossing paths. One a scholar w/transportation, and one a monk.
I'm reminded by this card, even loners have their moments of sociability, intended or not; and I'm betting humans had animal companions from the time they stood upright. I tag myself as a loner, but I'd go mad within a week if I didn't have my animal companions and the ability to reach out to other humans via phone, computer, or auto. Best of both worlds.
If this were reversed and I were a fortune teller, I'd say you were about to have something precious stolen by the last person on earth you'd suspect.
"I only go out to get me a fresh appetite for being alone." ~ Lord Byron 1788-1824
