Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Elements of the Psychic World: According to legend the wisdom is contained in 42 books, known as the Her-metica, allegedly written by Hermes Trismegistus, a philosopher-priest-king and metaphysical equivalent of the Egyptian and Greek gods Thoth and Hermes. The books were written on papyrus and stored in the great library of Alexandria. After fire destroyed the library most of the books were lost but surviving fragments, The Corpus Hermeticum, were supposedly buried in a secret location.

Tarot for Beginners: Reversed, The Hermit may point to unpleasant bouts of isolation and loneliness that should be tempered with some positive social time with supportive people. It may also indicate a refusal to learn or listen to advice, which can result in withdrawal from others in anger or resentment. It may be that youre prone to over-analysis and a tendency to intellectualize rather than allowing feelings to surface. Sometimes, looking too closely at a thing will prevent you from seeing it at all.

Reversed Cards: Sometimes what you need is what you already have. When this card shows up in the protection aspect, the universe may be telling you to dig deeper. It may seem like you need outside assistance, but the truth is you dont. More to the point, youre not in the right position to accept. Think of it like this: you want to ask the bank for a loan but you dont have all your paperwork in order or you still have some outstanding debts that could cause your loan application to be tanked. This means you need to do more work. You have to put yourself in order before asking for more.
