Daily Tarot Card Brief: THE PATH OF YOD-Key 9- The Hermit

THE PATH OF YOD: Key- 9-The Hermit.
* Primary Path Color: Yellowish-Green
* Musical Note: F
*Meaning of Yod: Hand
* Astrological sign: Virgo
* Hebrew Letter: Simple Letter-Sexual Love
* Esoteric Title: The Prophet of the Eternal, The Magus of the Voice of Power.
 
(Paul Foster Case)  Thirty-Two Paths of Wisdom: The Twentieth Path is the Intelligence of Will, and is so called because it is the means of preparation of all and each created being, and by this intelligence the existence of the Primordial Wisdom becomes known.
The Path of Yod, connects Tiphareth (Sephira 6- Beauty. Also known as the Christ-Buddha center) and Chesed (Sephira 4-Mercy. Also the Architect of Manifestation). The Path of Yod is the very point of origin of our manifest Universe, it represents the self-sustained primal beginnings of manifestation. A direct contact with the Divine Source of All. Virgo is attributed to the Twentieth Path and reminds us that the Hermit be ever-virgin, pure, and totally innocent. It represents a gateway to the bridge  between Macrocosm (Macroprosopus) and Microcosm ( Microprosopus) which give it certain qualities of Daath represented by the very isolation of the figure. To look upon this figure suggests to me, Diogenes in search of the honest man---maybe even Moses emanating his rays of light.  This solitariness is even defined in the word Hermit, which comes from the Greek word meaning desert. It is a fact that during the third and fourth centuries , extreme asceticism and societal withdrawal where considered a means of perfection. Many ascetics lived in the desert to achieve this.  As our understanding progresses along the Tree of Life, we see that the more important it is that we let the card suggest such images as they will.  Images of a desert, is a very potent one. As a concept, the desert is an expanse of earth as indefinably vast as the ocean and as we consider Binah in the image of deep, dark, endless waters, we are able to see the desert as a crystallization  out of Binah's vast sea of consciousness. The Hermit is the same expression of energy conscious as the Fool.; it is at once the wise old age of the Child (Horus) and the virgin beginning of a new sequence.  The Hermit is  pre-eminently one of union. The Hermit represents the first point of awareness by the Higher Self of the Supreme Spiritual Self (Greater Self of the Buddhists)  this is explained by the most erotic of imagery (As in the Hindu Tantric Temples)  But this is not the outer sexuality of coition, for this card is the essence of isolation and singularity. This is "self-contained" and "self-sustaining" sexuality---the inner dance of polarities attributed to communion  of Chokma and Binah (The Red Cloak shows his roots with Binah), which makes all form -alive! Yod is phallic; it is the Male-Fire (electric force) which rushes out toward the Female-Water (magnetic force) . Yod is the All-Father in manifestation below the Abyss, which is related to the Logos (word of God). On the Tree of Life , Tiphareth (6-Beauty) is the Logos center, a n objective link between God and Man (as above so below). Remembering that the Paths are subjective,  the link is on the Path of the Hermit.  This is to say, that Tiphareth is the objective center that can only be understood as transitional energy subjectively on the Path of Yod. To look from above down, by rising above Tipareth toward Chesed, on the Path of the Hermit, is to see subjectively ---and experience of "spiral hind-sight".
The hand is, man's ultimate creative tool, is attributed to Yod and The Hermit is the very hand of God. The Orphic Egg wrapped in a serpent, represents the ancient Orphic Mysteries interpretation of the Cosmos encircled by the Fiery Spirit,i.e. Yod. The Three Headed Dog (Cerberus) guards the gates of Hell--has been tamed by the Hermit. The spermatozoon image, represents the Yod energy in the material world, while the  completely hidden staff transmits the sexual force. A. Crowley stated, "In this Triumph is then the entire mystery of Life in its most secret workings. Yod=Phallus=Spermatozoon=Hand=Logos=Virgin" The Lamp refers to Tiphareth, and makes a statement about the very nature of Light. The Yod is The Hermit, Heh is The Emperor and Vau is the Hierophant and all are functioning to the side of the Pillar of Mercy on the Tree of Life--a trinity from Chesed to Tipahareth to Chokmah, and back to Chesed. Thus we have a very valuable subject of meditation. For more information about Qaballah classes, or personal reading appointments, call Eli @ 253-241-0129 or Email : info@eli-lsmerchantile.com.
