It is time to be courageous and open to feeling optimistic.
If you are laid low, The Star guides you to hold on to hope and recognize your inner strength. Your feelings of despair are valid, but remember that balance is always restored when we center ourselves, and new paths are always just beyond the fog.
The Hermit is a great wanderer of the inner landscape, eternally seeking knowledge of the self. A strong will and vast knowledge of the world alone is not enough to bring inner peace, and so The Hermit wanders through their unconscious mind in search of understanding.
