When reversed, the Hermit suggests that somewhere along the way the user has lost balance on the tightrope walk of introversion versus extroversion. Look outside of yourself and see if you have drawn in too deeply. In your path for self-reflection, have you unduly distanced yourself from others? Personal connections are important as they help tether us to the surrounding world, so be sure not to abandon them completely. In regards to a personal relationship, this position may also suggest that the user or their partner has become unwillingly isolated. Try to assess your standing and understand what it is you truly want. If a relationship has ended, this may also be a sign that it may be time to revisit it, either platonically or romantically.
