Pithy Tarot meanings — The Hermit
Time heals all wounds.
Here’s an alternate Pithy meaning, which has a humorous tone:
If time heals all wounds, why is it that old age is fraught with so many ailments?
Or, as my grandmother used to say, “Old age is a curse.”
These pithy Tarot meanings come from an old traditional interpretation of the Hermit as “Father Time” and thus as a symbol of the inevitable passage of time. (Notice the hour-glass held by the Hermit in the Visconti Svortza deck.)
Pithy Tarot card meanings are short, easy to remember meanings, and they will even stimulate further insights when called to mind during a reading. In addition, they can be fun.
