The Hermit VIII Tarot of Marseilles
The Hermit VIIII is handsomely dressed in materials, of red, blue and gold. He wears a heavy, luxurious and well-crafted, blue cloak that drapes large and abundantly. Deep-blue is the color of integrity, intelligence, inner-balance and, in medieval times, signified elevated social standing or higher status. The colour blue symbolizes the fifth or throat chakra and represents one’s ‘voice’, speaking one’s truth and to ‘hear and speak’ to spirit.
