Wander alone; being the Light and
thy Staff! And be the Light so bright
that no man seeth thee! (BOT)
We are working on what Crowley calls, The Mode of Fulfillment of The Great Work. There are three key players responsible for creating this mode: Earth, Mercury and the Sun. It is here in The Hermit that they all meet for the first time. He represents Virgo, the mutable sign of Earth and Virgo is ruled by Mercury. He carries the lamp of the Sun - that lights the world.
Illumination from within. The Hermit walks alone as the lights the world. He guides us to the higher spiritual realms and teaches us to go within - to meditate, dream, ponder and study. He guides us to self knowledge and self mastery.
I was wondering if this card would show up while we are all sitting in stillness, waiting for the covid-19 virus to make its way through our communities. We may not like having to sit still and wait, but since we have no choice, we should make the most of it!
