Tarot Cards Reading: the Hermit and the Wheel of Fortune

Author: Dominique Halet

The Hermit - Arcana VIIII

The Hermit is the ninth Tarot card.

This tarot card is represented by an old man wearing a cape and carrying a lantern, walking with a cane. This old person seems to walk with caution.

His clothing is quite particular: the inside of his cape is richer than the outside; which means that the Hermit gives more value to the inner wealth than to the external wealth.

The Hermit is not a negative tarot card, it is a symbol wisdom.

Basic meaning:

In the right position, the Hermit symbolizes caution, protection, but also reflection and misanthropy.

In the reversed position this tarot card represents selfishness, greed, indolence, dishonest actions.


During a consultation, the Hermit card may emerge in a favorable position and inform our consultant about the importance of reflection, her questioning, it may also mean that this person will take time to make her decision.

When the Hermit comes in a negative position (on the left), it confirms the blocking of a situation, either by the consultant's inaction, either by the questioning of a person associated with our consultant.

For instance, a woman who applied for a new job did not receive a reply. If the Hermit card is positioned in a negative way, it means that the employer is a misogynist and that our consultant has no chance to get the job.

The Hermit also represents isolation, imprisonment, betrayal.

Placed next to the Temperance this card symbolizes harmony.

The Wheel Of Fortune - Arcana X

This card is adorned with a wheel in motion; which represents the changes of our life. The Wheel Of Fortune arcana symbolizes our destiny.

Two figures are on the Wheel of Fortune: on the right is Hermanubis, good engineering and on the left is Typhon, the perversion symbol.

A Sphinx is sitting at the top of the wheel to counterbalance good and evil. This character is also the symbol of our destiny.

The Wheel of Fortune represents the ups and downs of our life, good and evil, joys and sorrows.

Basic meaning:

In the right position this Tarot card represents success, good intuitions, money, victories.

In the reversed position the tenth major arcana represents failure, lost opportunities, instability, loss of money, blocked situations...


Imagine that we pull five cards and place them side by side; the Wheel of Fortune is located to the right of the Death (placement to the left or right is important when reading the cards).

In this case, Death means the end of something, and has not to be taken in a negative way because the Wheel of Fortune on the right represents the positive elements.

Situation: our consultant needs to learn if she will be dismissed by her boss.

Answer: This person has everything to gain from the situation because the Death means the end of her career in this company and the Wheel of Fortune means a new career, somewhere else and ten times more interesting.

On the other hand, if we use the four cards play and if the Wheel of Fortune is in the negative position (on the right) it represents a blocked situation.

On the right side of the Ace Cup, the Wheel of Fortune means love at first sight.

On the right side of the Empress, it teaches us that woman will decide of our destiny.
