Do you know your Tarot Birth Card?

Numerology and Tarot are age-old friends, they intimately connected, and when used together, can be powerfully revealing!

Every single card in a Tarot deck is associated with a particular number. From the Magician to the Hermit to the World Card, they all have a numerological equivalent. So if you already know a thing or two about Numerology, you probably understand something of the meaning and symbolism contained in the numbers 1 – 9. These hold true for the cards in a Tarot deck too. But this is only the beginning…

Life Path 9: Tarot Birth Card – The Hermit

‘Wisdom resides within’

Tarot Birth Card The Hermit Number 9Hermits are wise souls. Studious and intelligent, they often seem to have their head in the clouds. But the opposite is actually true – these are people on a lifelong Spiritual search seeking answers to their questions.

Pictured upon a mountaintop the, the Hermit symbolizes achievement and the accomplishment of lofty goals. His staff is a sign of his spiritual authority and his lamp (often shining bright with a six-pointed star – the star of Solomon) lights the way in the dark, for other seekers who follow in his footsteps.

If the Hermit is your Tarot birth card, you may be a solitary kind of person, often feeling that you are somehow an outsider. You relish sanctuary – the opportunity to curl up with a book, write, meditate or simply allow your thoughts to flow.

Here in the world, Hermits are visionaries. They apply their inner wisdom to life around them and understand humanity’s problems in a deep and personal way; whilst at the same time, they manage to remain detached enough to make positive changes.

They are often regarded as teachers, mentors or guides of some kind. Whether professionally, or in a volunteer or friend capacity, people turn to them for wisdom and advice.

Key Strengths of the Hermit Tarot Birth Card:

⇢ You’re a thinker, analytical and attentive to detail in whatever you study.

⇢ You have the potential to be very successful in your field – you have the kind of focus that will enable you to climb high in whatever you do.

⇢ You are deeply comfortable in your own company and rarely feel insecure.

⇢ You’re a very spiritual person – always looking for the deeper meaning in life.

Key Challenges of the Hermit Tarot Birth Card:

These are similar to the traits which are emphasised in a Tarot reading when the Hermit Card shows up reversed.

⇢ You can be somewhat detached from society, which can be lonely at times. Don’t be afraid to reach out when you feel the need.

⇢ You’re so focused on the thing you’re thinking about at any time, that you can miss the little details in life. Remember to enjoy life’s simple pleasures!

⇢ You can come over as a know-it-all, which is both a blessing and a curse for you.

⇢ You may struggle to let people get close to you.

Hermit Tarot Birth Card Love & Compatibility:

⇢ You’d work well with a High Priestess (Life Path 2), with whom you could reach new heights (or rather depths) of spiritual wisdom, and you’d be known as a pair of great spiritual thinkers.

 ⇢ A Lover (Life Path 6) could either charm or exasperate you.

 ⇢ An Empress’s (Life Path 3) very sociable nature might not be your cup of tea.

 ⇢ You’d help a Chariot (Life Path 7) find more depth in their ideas, and in turn, they might encourage you to do more with your learning – you’d be an argumentative but very respectful couple.

Hermit Tarot Birth Card Career, Work And Lifestyle Ideas:

 ⇢ You’d be ideal as a spiritual leader or speaker – you are able to articulate your ideas well and people love to hear what you have to say. Your guidance is always appreciated – look for ways to share it.

 ⇢ You’re at home in academia and would make a good student, lecturer or professor. You may also be drawn to writing – books, an intelligent blog, any way you can get your ideas out there.

 ⇢ You’re more at home when you can work alone – team roles can be difficult for you, but when given a project you can work on by yourself you really excel.


Obviously, you can’t gain a true and complete picture of somebody through their Tarot Birth Card!

You are not simply your birth card, your Life Path Number, or anything else you can figure out by adding up the numbers in your life, you are a complex and beautiful creature formed from a myriad of different influences. These are archetypes or universal energy types which move through people in different ways.

But sometimes it can be incredibly powerful to have symbols, numbers, words, cards – anything at all – to hold onto, to help make sense of what we are doing and why!
