The card is portraying protection in a form of an elderly man. Despite his fragile appearance, he is a portrayal of strength, energy, and revelation. The Old Man possesses vast knowledge, whilst in personality, the card is a symbol of patience, life experience, and acceptance. The card focuses on awakenings of new thoughts, spiritual enlightenment, and peace within yourself and also with the world at large. It speaks of emotional balance, contentment and spiritual fulfilment.
How do you read the Old Man if you asked a question about Love? Since the Old man is wise and strong, but most of all he is the embodiment of patience, it is advising you to wait for the right person. Don't rush into the first relationship for the sake of feeling alone, lonly or just want to experience love again.
Why do you need the Old Man's patience? Even if the person is perfect for you, by rushing the relationship, you can destroy the order in which things need to happen. It might cause trust issues, moments that lead your partner to question your motives, or just make them feel uncomfortable with the relationship as a whole. Let things happen at their own pace and don't push anything that may take time.
