Much like last year, I’m going to observe my Card of the Year.
I suppose this is appropriate, given I will concentrate on researching and writing my second MA thesis this year.
The Hermit is a card of, well, research. He represents the archetype of the secluded scholar or wise ascetic. He relentlessly seeks knowledge for himself first and then transmits it to those who seek his counsel. He shines his light to reveal what lies hidden in the darkness and forever seeks a path to the future.
I reckon that there is no better herald or advisement for my year ahead. Here’s to 2017, researching with the Hermit!
