Artist Interpretation

A man in a cowl walks through the gate of an old garden. His white beard indicates age and wisdom. He holds a staff in his left hand, and a lantern in his right hand, which he lifts up high to illuminate his path. He looks deep in thought and concentrated. He is An (Anu), one of the oldest gods and initially a supreme deity of the Babylonian pantheon.

Card Meaning

According to the Babylonian mythology, An created the universe and the gods, as well as the monsters and demons. Some of these monsters were designed to punish humans. An was supposed to be the father of all the gods, and he was responsible for giving them their powers. It was also An’s privilege to grant the kings absolute power. The power itself called Anutu in Sumerian. When gods expressed Marduk’s authority over them, they said: “Your word is Anu!”

The Hermit impersonates introspection, spirituality, and a quest for the truth. Being focused inward, and living in the inner world, he is able to look objectively at the world around him, and he continues to increase his knowledge. The meanings of this card include searching the truth, concentrating on questions within, and withdrawing from the material world. Being a spiritual teacher, the Hermit is a beacon of knowledge.
