Daily Draw: Grand Etteilla Tarot ~ Hermit

With its old fashion 'tall dark stranger' titles, the Hermit meets or exposes betrayal and falsehood.

I'm reminded by this card of 'garbage in, garbage out'.  Reality has mostly been not nearly as bad as I can and do imagine it in my brain. Letting the Hermit's light go dark, now that would be a exercise in denial.


  1. It feels so alien to interpret my favorite Major The Hermit as "betrayal and falsehood"

    1. It dates back to 1870. Its history is quite interesting and an Etteilla (Jean-Baptiste Alliette) discussion is fun to be part of

  2. We need the Hermits to help light the way.

  3. Amazing how those dark thoughts disappear when you shine the light of clarity on them.


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
