June 12 Inspirational Card of the Day

Major Arcana TRUMP # 9

The Hermit Tarot Tara Greene

THE HERMIT The Alchemical Tarot

If you’ve been following this daily offering you may have noticed that

we are encountering a series of Major Trump Cards. The Fool, Strength and now The Hermit. 

THE HERMIT  is the old wise SAGE, the guru, the seeker of inner wisdom,the Ancient wisdom keeper,

The number 9 is the number of completion, perfection , it is the last in the sequence 1-9 and then repeats.

THE HERMIT is always a  lone figure, as the name implies. A hermit was/is  a spiritual seeker,

one who went into the woods,or into a cave,  who dropped out of society to seek more meaningful  answers to life.

He is usually cloaked, mysterious, traditionally an older, wiser more experienced grey haired long bearded man.

He can be facing left or right, always holding a lantern and a staff. He is a seeker and a way shower.

Some famous Hermit types are the Buddha, Yoda, Gandalf, St. Francis of Assisi, Hildegarde Von Bingen, a 12th Century German Benedictine musician, mystic, writer, herbalist and visionary, American artist Georgia O’Keefe, musician Cat Stevens who converted to Islam and dropped out of public sight at the height of his fame.

The Hermit is also the sign of VIRGO

add on the additional meanings of earth sign, practical, devoted,ecology, hard-working, serving others, intelligent, ordered, perfecting, health.

MEANING

The HERMIT is a part of you seeking deeper meaning and inner wisdom within. The Hermit is telling you to take some time out. SLow down. You need a break from the usual daily crazy busyness. Slow down, pay attention to what you eat, digest everything, get into  your body wisdom. Do something which requires time, concentration, patience to create. Write, read, slow down. You already have the answers within you. 

MEDITATION

Close your eyes take some deep breaths, and imagine that you are walking into the forest away from all civilization. As you walk you drop different personas, attitudes, defenses in the form of clothing, symbolic items which drop to the side of your path. As you walk you feel lighter and lighter. 

You walk for a very long time through the woods with only the sounds of the birds and the trees snapping and the breeze blowing. Listen, the world is at peace, it is whole complete beautiful. You are seeking help as you still don’t know where you are going, why or how. You ask from your heart for a sign. It is getting dark, fear comes up and sends shivers down your spine. A raven crows. Darkness descends and you stop walking. You feel your heart racing in your chest. You lean against a large tree. And remember to breathe deeply to calm down. You start to feel centered, you remember to be like the tree and grow roots to ground yourself. You feel steadier. Then something inside you tells you to turn around, and off in the distance you think you see a faint glow. You carefully walk towards the dim light which gets brighter as you go. Then there ahead of you and above you, you see a figure. A man in a hooded cape holding up a light. Telepathically he tells you that you  he is your guide, your way shower, he is protecting you with his Light and he will always be there for you whenever you need.  You are awestruck by his presence which seems ancient, kind, mysterious yet filled with knowledge. 

Anytime you wish your inner guide is there for you. You have just met him. Sit quietly every day and ask the HERMIT to teach you. It will take time and patience. You must persist.

Moon conjunct Galactic Center,Pluto, I’m wide awake, spiritual astrology meditations from Tara Greene

WOW aren’t you feeling how intense the energies are these days? The aftermath of the Aurora Colorado Dark Knight Rises shootings felt like everyone was frozen in fear and unable to move for days.

The Mercury Retrograde… oy, I started writing this article at 11:00 am Sunday morning. I just lost the entire article! My computer is doing weird things. My Blackberry froze and I can’t scroll down to see my emails since yesterday.  How’s it going with you?

I was sitting in my livingroom gazing up at that Moon getting fuller in SAGITTARIUS the Sign of  Sacred Law, Higher Learning, aiming Higher.

The MOON has just conjunct the Galactic Centre exactly as it does every month and is now at 28 degrees of Sagittarius as I am re-writing this at 1:35 am EDT Monday July 30. Can you believe it’s the end of July already.

SHARING my SAGITTARIAN VISIONS

I woke up this morning with a very vivid VISION, a download of spiritual energy. I saw very bright, sort of geometric shapes floating, merging, dancing. It looked  like a  KANDINSKY painting come to life.

Ka.Andinsky visions,spiritual meditations

Yes it looked like this only very vivid bright in motion colours.

Then I heard GEORGE HARRISON singing  WITHIN YOU AND WITHOUT YOU simultaneously.  I know, it sounds like a 60’s flashback! I never did drugs

We were talking
About the space between us all
And the people who hide themselves
Behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth
Then it’s far too late
When they pass away

We were talking
About the love we all could share
When we find it
To try our best to hold it there
With our love, with our love
We could save the world
If they only knew

Try to realize it’s all within yourself
No one else can make you change
And to see you’re really only very small
And life flows on within you and without you

We were talking
About the love that’s gone so cold
And the people who gain the world
And lose their soul
They don’t know, they can’t see

Are you one of them
When you’ve seen beyond yourself
Then you may find
Peace of mind is waiting there
And the time will come
When you see we’re all one
And life flows on within you and without you

Then I  heard the words “I’M WIDE AWAKE”  shout in my head. Yes I know it’s Katy Perry’s big hit song now. Yes I know,your thinking I’m just picking up on the regular radio airwaves. But I know this was  a very specific message.

I have always stated that the MEDIA is always, always, sending subliminal propaganda messages. Some artists have integrity and their messages are true and channelled from the Highest integrity of soul. Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan come to mind.

All creativity comes from Spirit through NEPTUNE in Astrology. Katy Perry’s current song is a great mantra. Just keep saying to your self

I’M WIDE AWAKE!   I’M WIDE AWAKE!    I”M WIDE AWAKE!    I’M WIDE AWAKE!

This is to wake you from the somnambulist half asleep state most of the planet lives in. When we get stunned by the fear and violence and the senselessness of what is going on,on the planet we shut down. This is to help you stay awake. We have all been lulled into being hypnotized by the media and cultural institutions and yes it’s very much like the MATRIX.

SAGITTARIUS INSIGHTS

I am a Sagittarius with a Sagittarius Moon, and i also have Mercury conjunct the Galactic Center, so I have always felt tuned into that larger Galactic source, that huge Black Hole at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. It’s all about consciousness, we are spiritual, eternal souls temporarily residing in these fragile beautiful bodies. So our consciousness is our bandwidth of perception, As the dimensions expand we need to have bigger broader deeper bandwidth capabilities. The metaphors are all literal.

Everyone has the Sign of Sagitttarius in their natal chart, you may have a planet or two there, anchoring that Sagittarius truth-telling fire too. check it out.

The Galactic Center, that big black hole is intuited as the Galactic Vagina, the Cosmic womb and gateway through which all souls are birthed into this little Galaxy and exit. V for vagina indeed. We are conscious mirrors of the Great Mystery.

So lets use this time to tune in as the Moon passes the Galactic Centre till the Moon conjuncts PLUTO Monday @ 1:04 pm PDT/ 4:04 pm EDT

MEDITATION for communing with the GALACTIC CENTER & PLUTO

You can use this meditation every month as the moon conjuncts the Galactic Center and then occults PLUTO.

So close your eyes and begin to consciously breathe. Visualize a key turning in a lock.

Take some deep breaths, relax, focus on your breath.

Breath deep and feel the armouring falling away from your body, feel all the defensive posturing, just melting away, effortlessly.

Keep breathing into this. Take as much time as you need to sink deeper and deeper into a space of de-armoured trust and innocence.

We want to get back to a childlike state of being, a blank slate, a mirror, clear, unblemished. Calm, peaceful.

If tears or heavy energies come up just let them flow. I am feeling this intense energy too. The more releasing you do the healthier it is.

We are in a very Yang fire and air energy of the moment. We need to bring in more earth and water, grounding and emotions.

When you get to a place of centeredness and quiet stay focused and aware of your heart and solar plexus, 2 fingers below your navel.

Simply see yourself climbing out of boxes, like Chinese boxes or Russian nestling dolls. You will climb out of all your defenses, your constructs, your boundaries that are keeping you separate, enclosed.

Say to yourself “I am wide awake.” Notice that your real life is a dream. That what you think is real is only a mental, physical, karmic magical construct.

Start to create and imagine your highest most beautiful Heaven world, start to re-member HOME.  Feel the longing you have to be home,to be in paradise, that perfect feeling, how it looks taste, feels. Complete, at total peace.

Allow this vision to embody you, it is calling you. You are being rebirthed from the Galactic Centre, you are free and wide awake.

See before you a beautiful hand mirror, and pick it up.

See yourself in your original beautiful unarmored state. You are so beautiful you gasp, Yes it’s true this is YOU!

Breathe, feel the love you have for yourself, it is good.

This is your deep, deep, higher consciousness. As the Moon is now in Capricorn and conjunct Pluto you will ground it in your body

So be in this space.

Ask your ancestors who love you, to be at your back, feel their hands on your back.

Feel the support, breathe a sigh of relief.

Ask for whatever it is you need to come to you now, speak to you,  feel it,  hear it and all of the above.

Take as much time as you need. Integrate and come slowly out of your meditation.

Write down whatever occurred for you. If you think you didn’t experience anything, trust that you did download a new energy frequency.

Sit with it for a couple of days.

Get ready for the FULL MOON Wed. August 1st  PDT/ Aug 2nd GMT.

The Full mOON is time for completion. There is a 6 pointed star planetary configuration on this Full MOON

 see more about this in next articles

let me know how this meditation works for you, keep working with it…
