The Hermit

 “In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”

Societal pressures frequently require that people act without considering the long-term consequences to those actions.  A steady chipping away occurs until all values are compromised and nothing of substance is left.  It asks that we immediately call into question whatever values that can only ever provide temporary, superficial satisfaction.  Those moving through life without the ability to feel or empathize are not people but things.  This card suggests that you take the space required to preserve essential aspects of your humanity.
