The Hermit : Virgo
He stands alone on the top of a mountain with a lantern in his hand. Mountains typically symbolize achievement, growth, and accomplishment. The Hermit has attained his spiritual pinnacle and is ready to share his knowledge with others. He is also continuing the path he has chosen, committed to his goal of ultimate awareness. The star in the lantern is a six-pointed star (the Seal of Solomon, a symbol of wisdom). The staff carried by the Hermit is the patriarch’s staff, a symbol of the narrow path of initiation and an emblem of power and authority. It represents the Hermit’s ability to use his isolation and the knowledge he has gained as a tool upon his path to reach
even higher levels of awareness. The staff is in the Hermit’s left hand, the hand associated with the subconscious mind. The snow at his feet represents the heights of spiritual attainment. He wears the grey cloak of invisibility. His secrets are not for everyone, only for those earnestly seeking them and those willing to climb the heights to wisdom. The astrological correspondence for this card is Virgo and the number 9 signifies accomplishment, wisdom, the attainment of goals, as well as the search for truth.
At times like this week. I feel like it’s time to just rest, relax, and rejuvenate my soul. I have been very busy growing learning and teaching what I have learned. But there Comes A Time that quiet contemplation is an absolute must., I woke up this morning feeling so incredibly exhausted. Possibly because of the new moon coming, but also because of the mental and emotional and spiritual learning that has been done. It’s hard sometimes to find balance when you are very passionate about the things and people that you love. I am very passionate about teaching, I am very passionate in relationships, I am very passionate about everything really. I have found the passion brings out the best work from me. Whether it be feelings of excitement from New Adventures or feelings of despair from a broken heart… Either way everything can be used as a stepping stone to a better you. Allowing your passion to flow through you in all circumstances is always the best route to take.
In the last 2 years I have been through the gamut as far as relationships are concerned. I have also taken major hits financially. I think I have taken the saying “find the silver lining.” To a whole new level. But somehow in my spirit, Divine source is leading me to the next level of knowingness. Of understanding myself and my role in the universe.
Letting Go has never been my strong suit, especially when I know I shouldn’t have gotten involved in certain situations in the first place. I don’t mind that people let me down, I don’t mind that finances take a hit. While, it does stress me out initially, it seems that somehow things always come back around. I know that in hindsight everything will make sense. I have faith and trust that God will guide me.
The universe is such a special place to be. Like we are all one soul linked with one soul purpose. To learn to love each other unconditionally. Now I never profess to know everything but I do know that when you throw love at a situation and treat the whole event as the universe would treat it…..people grow and heal and become a bigger part of the whole consciousness because it is like we all wake up in the process. Waking up is never easy. Usually it takes an even of mass proportions to snap us out of our regular way of being. It is hard. It is painful….but essentially incredibly necessary. I don’t know the plans of the divine…but I do know the root of where the divine stems from and that is love. Once you know that love is what should drive us all and is what drives The Divine, it makes it a little easier to trust that all things will work out for our highest good. That is where I am stemming my life from at the moment. Of course we are all souls on a journey and this changes from time to time as we step into awareness and step out of awareness just as fast. No one is perfect. But in bringing this new way of being into your life….I trust and have faith that love will prevail. In all circumstances.
