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.

What is Pope FRANCIS 1st all about ? born Dec ember 17 1936 in Buenos Aries Argentina

The POPE was only one of two Pope’s on the list who had a CLEAN RECORD of sexual abuse. He was a smart choice.

South American has a huge devout Catholic population. Hispanics are one of the largest growing language and culture groups in the United States,and South America is set to be one of the richest and THE spiritual center in the world  for the next 12,000 years according to Drunvalo Melchizedek in his book Serpent of LIGHT. Just as Tibet and India were center’s for the last 12,000 years, it is now South America’s turn.

ST. Francis was known for being a simple humble man who communed with nature.

The New pope is  a Sagittaria and they love animals. Pope Francis has the North Node conjunct his Sun very near to the Galactic Center, making him a very powerful charismatic leader and teacher. He may appear simple and uninterested in the mundane world.

This indicates he may have a visionary,  have a real  metaphysical higher calling. An honest, New Age philosophy POPE?

How does he see the People and Women?

Symbolized by the Moon- people and Venus in his natal chart they are conjunct  7 degrees of  AQUARIUS

Moon in Aquarius is a hi tech POPE- perhaps he will start a BLOG, and use the new technologies to reach the flock.

The POPE on I PHONE giving I Benedictions.

He is detached in his feelings and sees women as things, objects. Although he has PLUTO in Cancer opposite that exact MOON VENUS conjunction.

He may feel very nurturing protective private and insecure deep down. Perhaps very close to his mother, sentimental about his  native homeland.

With Jupiter conjunct Mercury in Capricorn

he may sound very businesslike, have strong Patriarchal presence, easy to command, definitely conservative.

Mars in Libra

he will try to keep the peace, although he may flip-flop. Mars in Libra has good taste, refinement, Good people skills. Aims to please others.

Loves those POPE HATS.

TiaraPiusIX-2

I set this chart at NOON which gives Pope Francis a 15 mid degree PISCES ASCENDANT with SATURN ON HIS ASCENDANT

This is the type of POPE he will be. OLD SCHOOL, SATURN, TRADITIONAL, PISCES is the OLD AGE we are moving out of

If he could act from his emotions with is MOON VENUS CONJUNCTION IN AQUARIUS

The new POPE would be innovative, supporting birth control, gays, loosening up old ancient worn out traditions.

He does want the People’s love.

SATURN IN PISCES is opposite Neptune in Virgo

He is analytical, intelligent, hard-working, a simple man, devoted to being of service.

CHIRON in GEMINI SQUARE SATURN in PISCES Opposite NEPTUNE in VIRGO

He is of two minds, can debate the old vs New, may feel insecure about his communications skills

URANUS in TAURUS opposite LILLITH square MOON VENUS

Uranus in Taurus is developing a new tiller for the soil. Inventing new practical  resources. LILLITH opposite that

and square his Moon, instincts and Venus in Aquarius. He is afraid that he cannot control woman and her sexuality

that she will ridicule him. ERGO bind that woman, that Harlot, the Whore of BABYLON.

STARS ON ELECTION DAY for POPE- MArch 13 2013

PLUTO IS EXACTLY on his MERCURY in Capricorn

Power, soul is exactly in harmony with prevailing patriarchal and Corporate politics

Jupiter is almost on his IC MC- he will be moving to his new home where he will TEACH/Preach. PONTIFCIATE

that’s what Sagittarius love to do best.

SATURN is RETROGRADE square to his MOON VENUS

will cross his LILLITH and oppose his URANUS SHORTLY

an unexpected  Higher position, responsibility and worldly career promotion to be sure

JUPITER will be opposite his Jupiter in July

VENUS just crossed POPE FRANCIS ASCENDANT indicating a new journey, a new birth, and is squaring his CHIRON at 20 Pisces on election day

The people symbolized by the MOON in Aries and PLUTO in Capricorn

are SQUARE and the people will test the PAPACY’s powers especially around women and wealth distribution of the VATICAN

if this POPE Acts Like SAINT FRANCIS

he will be giving away millions to the Poor, fostering veganism, care for lowly beings, animal rights, an honest, truly spiritual, honest POPE

which in this age of dwindling respect for the PAPACY would be revolutionary.

St. Francis walked his talk, lived a simple humble spiritual life listening to Christ in a bird’s song.

that would be really sweet and simple and what the world needs now.
