It’s the same with the Tarot. We have a core meaning to the cards, but at the same time different aspects of it can come to prominence. The Hermit is one example- here’s a guy with a lantern and a staff. We can make some assumptions about the card- he’s looking for direction, he’s finding his way, his aspect suggests travel and a journey. Maybe he’s holding that lantern out for someone else, having come down the road already, and returning to offer his light and guidance. Whatever we take from it, we still have the same idea of what the Hermit is and what he’s doing.
