Wrapping it up. Closing it out. COMPLETION. In the depths of your being, you realize it is time to end this cycle. What have you learned? What does it all mean? What experience has become wisdom that you will take with you into the next leg of the journey? The Hermit is the "wise old man/woman" archetype. He retreats into the woods to be alone. Solitude is his best friend. It allows him to be with himself and journey deep within his own inner silence for reflection, meditation, wisdom and for finding the inner light. It is time for introspection and analysis. Deep understanding and meaning can come with alone-time and reflection. So much has happened this year, and there is so much wisdom to be harvested. There is so much light stored deep within. Go inside. Take the time to be alone with yourself and look back at this year of great changes. Your experiences and the wisdom gained are your teaching to share with others. Take yourself and your journey seriously, and look back to see how far you have come. You are wiser...and you are just about ready for the next cycle of adventure to begin. Blessings, wise one.
