The Hermit-key 9-The Path of Yod

The beauty of the Tarot Trump, is that they require a deep inner contemplation to begin understanding the flow of Force and Form in the 99.6% invisible Self. For instance, Yod  means Hand  which is humankind's  most creative tool., the open hand  represents the primal beginnings of manifestation since before anything can be built by human beings the hand must be open to grasp the tools necessary to begin; In this card we can see the Hermit has grasped the Light. Thus the Hermit represents the Hand of God  Before anything is created by humankind , we must have the idea or conception of a thing, that peculates out of the vast sea of consciousness that is Binah (The Scarlett Womb-man) who is represented by the Red Robes of the Hermit. The hand of God is a title also know to be that  of Moses, who led his people out of the desert into the promised land. Here the Esoteric meaning of the Hermit card seems to suggest that we need to first withdraw from the extremes of society and practice asceticism as an advance towards perfection. In fact, the very word Hermit is derived from the Greek word for Desert. Here the word desert suggests a crystallization of idea out of Binah's (Mother God) vast Ocean, a kind of island in a wine-dark sea. But these explanations are as dry as the desert and need more intimacy to internalize them. So no matter how the Hermit is described, it is communion,a preeminent union of Fiery Father Force from Kether (the Crown) with Binah, the Waters of  conscious form Crystallization and the birthing of Form as Beauty (Tiphareth- the Christ-Buddha center) From the first point of awareness by the Higher Self of the Supreme Spiritual Self can only be explained in the most erotic imagery. Yod itself, represents the Phallus that ejaculates its fiery vibration into the Vast Red Sea of Binah that represents the Primal Womb of conception of all Form.That fiery vibration is often called the Word of God (Greek term: Logos), which in biblical tales, was spoken to Moses via a burning bush. Here the word of God is not issued directly, but comes through Moses as an intermediary, which is the function of the Logos, so Moses may be considered the tool of God or to more explicit, the Hermit is the Phallus of the Logos which ejaculates it's vibration of Light (vibration/idea) into the vast Dark Red inner Womb/Ocean of Binah. The spermatozoa is shown on this card, next to the light of the Lantern that is held by the Hermit, suggesting this very interpretation. Also in the light of the Hermits Phallus-Lantern, is the three headed dog guardian of the Gates of Hell,  a Greek symbol known as Cerberus, who in this card is tamed by the Hermit and can be compared to the Passions tamed by the Hermit that if are untamed can  become Hell. The one Head of Cerberus looking back, is representative of keeping past memory while the two heads forward, suggest a Union that is progressive.  The mysteries of Life are truly shown in the Hermit as we have Yod=Phallus=Spermatozoon=Hand=Virgin (Astrological sign Virgo). The Virgin conceptual meaning of ever-pure and totally innocent. The Hermit card is also considered the Bridge between the gab of Macrocosm  (Macroprosopus) and Microcosm (Microprosopus) which simply means between the Invisible and Visible cosmos. This Bridge between the seen and unseen can also be called the Human Body! Who is in a vast desert of its own reality while floating in the Great Sea of Conscious energy that is Real----no one is there but your own self-conceptions! We never are made to think or feel  by "another", our body is a Hermit---what we think we feel we cannot feel an0ther person's  thought! We may react to their thought, but that is us thinking about the meaning of their Words and reacting to our own thought----not  a truth, not a real, just a self-centered perception of ourselves! If we fear (fear failure, fear inferiority, fear ability etc) more than love ourselves, we are living in Hell! Know this self-love must be virginal, pure and innocent without narcissism which is a superiority complex; another domain of Hell. The Hermit cards suggests that to manifest in your purity of Light, a Christos, or Buddha-Self, you must have intercourse with the Vast Dark Sea of Binah, the Mother of all Form and the Fiery Passion of the Father and know you are The Beautiful Child of Goddess-God---What the Conceive Themselves to Be!.  When your "I"'s (identity of three- I AM Me-the three heads of Cerberus)You'll recognize your Beauty in others, as your eyes ("I"s) are now enlightened by the Inner Love that created you. From the deep solitude of inner contemplation, we learn that there are no "others" just "anothers" as all that we see is "another way to be me"- isolated in our own perspectives and demanding that everyone else worship them as we do is to create Hell.  It's best to understand that "only to thine own self " can we be true. So is best to treat others as you wish to be treated and enjoy the different perspectives as fascinating experiments in Self-Awareness.  As the Hermit card suggests, you can only achieve this bliss, by traveling the solitary inner desert of the ascetic and learning the comfort and peace of your own Inner Self. When I AM comfortable with Me, I find that I Am equally comfortable with You! So once again, we must know ourselves, for in truth, we can only see ourselves projected as a reflection in the Mirror of Binah's Vast wine dark Sea of consciousness-----we are transmitting our reality upon another. The Hermit can only "See itself" in the vast desert of mind and it helps to carry the Light of Love---to see where you are going---Heaven or Hell, they are both a journey in self-conscious perceptions/projections..
Thank you for your interest and comments (Hi Anthony!). May you live long and prosper!
