Edmonton Tarot: The Hermit (IX)


Interpretation: The Hermit card denotes solitude, introspection and soul-searching. The person who draws this card may be at a crossroads in a relationship or in life. It is time to re-evaluate and seek something more.

Image: The Riverdale Labyrinth is my favourite labyrinth in Edmonton. This portable Cretan labyrinth is set up in a local community centre four times a year, once in every season. The labyrinth is made of long strands of golden beads stitched down on a large base of blue and violet broadcloth. I never miss a chance to walk this labyrinth!

I hope to walk a labyrinth one day. It looks like a great way to do some walking meditation!

That is not what I expected the Hermit card to be, but I like it. Crossroads need lots of thought.

That is all so very interesting, thank you for sharing!

I just bought a deck of tarot not long ago, but haven't used them yet.

Now I want to make one.

Get in line, labyrinth. Get in line. (It's beautiful.)

A lovely idea to use strands of beads! Been wondering what to do with all those beads we got at Mardi Gras!

The Hermit = practically my "mascot".

Seems like there's a lot of we hermits around which is a nice feeling. To walk around a labyrinth in a sacred manner is such a gift to a hermit. Maybe someday I'll walk one in Edmontun.

Laeli said...

The Labyrinth is beautiful! The Hermit card is not a bad thing, we all need a little introspection!

Jane said...

Wow, very nice! I didn't know about this.

I'm such a hermit at times that you could have also just posted my pic :)

An indoor labyrinth---I can dig that! Especially this time of year.

I can think of a few times in my life when the Hermit card applied to me.

I think the hermit card was made for me!

DWei said...

Oh, this is neat. The only thing similar that I've walked through is a corn maze.

Francie M said...

Nice picture. I'm not sure if I told you I had contacted a woman who was teaching?/monitoring?/making available?/ labyrinth time in this area. She never contacted me back and I've lost her address. When the time is right I guess ...

Magic Love Crow said...

I would love to walk this Labyrinth! I can relate to this card right now! Take Care ;o)
