The Hermit card shows an aged monk carrying a lantern and using his staff for support as he faces a barren landscape. The Fool has had to deal with all the elements of life, hate, love, fights, compromise, success and failure. He needs to retreat to regain his energies.
There are times in every life, when one must step back and make a careful examination of their situations and decisions through introspection. Finding the Hermit in your spread suggests this is just such a time for you. You are in need of a period of inner reflection and solitude, away from the current demands of your position. This retreat can be physical, or a search within. Only a deep reflection and honest introspection will lead to a solution.
