Faith, Spirituality Or Psychic Progression:

It’s very likely that at this time a person will come into your life who is like a mentor or teacher even if they don’t ‘teach’ you directly. You will still learn from them on several levels. Honor the need that you may be having to withdraw to a degree from ordinary life – It won’t last forever. You will soon be feeling much more social, so don’t push yourself now to be around a lot of people unless it is absolutely necessary. You will likely emerge from this month feeling refreshed and renewed, particularly on a spiritual level.

Card Meanings: Caution, Prudence, Soul Searching, Introspection, Withdrawal, Vigilance, Spiritual Enlightenment, Inner Guidance, Self-Reflection, Contemplation, Inner Strength

The Hermit is an extremely spiritual card, and often has to do with institutions and large organizations – everything from a bank to the entire Christian Church. This card indicates spirituality even if you are an atheist. It’s in whatever sense the word ‘spirit’ makes sense to you, even if for you ‘spirit’ equates to ’emotion.’ You may be trying hard to figure out what the ‘truth’ is about someone (or some matter), don’t feel that you have to do it all on your own, ask for help if you need it to gain different perspectives, more information, etc.

Book Details
Portable Magic: For a practical example, I will assume that we wish to form a bridge of communication with the spirit of Samuel L. MacGregor Mathers, the leader of the Golden Dawn. It is possible to form links with those who have died, or at least with spiritual intelligences who have assumed their identities and personalities and assert themselves to be the souls of those who once were alive. Whether these are the actual souls of the dead is a philosophical question difficult to resolve. Mathers’s birth chart has the Moon in Aries, Saturn in Taurus, Mars in Leo, Mercury in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Sagittarius, the Sun in Capricorn, and Venus in Aquarius.

Reversed Cards: The Hermit knows better than anyone how locking others out on purpose can be harmful. It is harmful to you, and it is harmful to those you suddenly block from your life for no real reason. Not that there aren’t times when you should leave people behind, but here in the shadow aspect, that is not the case. Here you are doing it on purpose as a form of punishment. You have withdrawn your love, your loyalty, and your support. You have rescinded the energy your relationships need to sustain themselves, so don’t be surprised if this all backfires, as you have no control how the other person or people will react to this shutdown of yours. Some might hang in there and see if you come to your senses. But some people can’t live without the energy you just cut them off from, which means they will find it somewhere else. So before you dig in and make the shadow aspect of the Hermit your permanent home, consider the real consequences of your actions. Are you really sure you are ready to be alone? Are you certain that you can continue on without the love and support of the person or people you have turned your back on? And if so, how do you believe this will nourish and support you moving forward? The Hermit in the shadow aspect can be very destructive. Remember, this is a karmic number: what you do know won’t affect just this life but the next one as well.

Tarot Triumphs: Standing upright, holding a lighted lantern, the Hermit is both imposing and humble. He wears a rough, hooded cloak and is bearded, with long locks. In his other hand, he holds a wooden staff. These are the symbols of his role. He does not have the ceremonial regalia of bishops or kings, but he has his own authority and wisdom, derived from the life of poverty and contemplation. Some in the crowd would like to bring their questions to him, to benefit from his insight. They know that hermits, though solitary, can be consulted. He is also a reminder of the need for charity that should be given not only to the poor but also to those who pray for the welfare of humankind.
