9 Introspection (Hermit)

Introspection represents the mystical power of the sage who has journeyed into his internal realms to attain wisdom. In solitude, he has traveled through his mind’s eye to achieve the highest level of consciousness. Introspection is willing to share his truth and his knowledge, yet he knows that others have their own path to follow and their own reality.

In Tarot of Empowerment, the light radiating from the heart of Introspection represents the integration of his spiritual and internal certainty. Even in a crowd the Hermit stands alone. His staff is a symbol of his long journey and the initiation into the realm of wisdom he has completed.
