The Hermit

The Hermit card should be fairly easy to interpret. Yet I am surprised by how many people say that the Hermit is, among other things, a teacher. He really isn’t.

The Eights

The 8 of Wands is, in almost every deck, a very simple image and a fairly clear message: events have been set in motion and will resolve speedily. While I can spin this to create a more mystical or more “important” meaning, in truth, when it shows up in a reading, I read it simply […]
