(Dr. 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
The Path of the Hebrew letter- Yod,
is represented as The Hermit-Key 9 and 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-The Divine Creative.
Virgo is attributed
to the Twentieth Path and the Hermit card. Virgo 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 the
invisible Sephiroth- Daath
(knowledge) 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.
is even defined in the word Hermit
, which comes from the Greek word meaning desert.
is a known 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 how 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, the 3rd Sephiroth, 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 Unconsciousness.
The Hermit is the same expression of energy conscious as the Fool; The Hermit, is at once the wise old age of the Child (Horus) and the virgin beginning of a new sequence.
The Hermit's principle is one of union
. The Hermit represents the first point of awareness by the Higher Self
and/or Real Person,
with that 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). However, this is not the
outer sexuality of coition, for this card is the essence of isolation
and singularity. Therefore, the Hindu god Ganesh, with his "phallic"
trunk would represent the Qabalistic Hermit. This is "self-contained"
and "self-sustaining" sexuality of the Anima and Animus; the inner
Soul- dance of polarities attributed to communion of Chokma and Binah
and or Shakti- Shiva. The Red Cloak on the Thoth Hermetic Tarot Card shows
his roots with Binah the Red or Geburah aspect of Mother Binah. This could be called Mother's Blood which makes all form -alive and which all Living form is made of! Hence, the Yod is
considered to be phallic; it is the Male-Fire (electric force) which
rushes out toward the Female-Water (magnetic force) . A Yod (hand)
is the All-Father in manifestation below the Abyss, which is related to the Logos (word of God).
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.Here the word Hermit
suggests a crystallization of idea out of Binah's (Mother God) vast
Ocean of Understanding, 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 and therefore the more erotic images are presented. So
no matter how the Hermit is described, it is communion, a
preeminent union of Fiery Father Force from Kether (the Crown) with
Binah- "will to form". The Waters of Unconscious-Imagination form force
into Crystallized light and the birthing of Form. As a harmonic of
communion, Beauty (Tiphareth- the Christ-Buddha center) radiates as the
first point of awareness by the Supreme Spiritual Self, The Divine
Anima, where she names her Husband, as the Animus (Soul) their union, to
be felt internally, can only be explained in the most erotic imagery.
On the Tree of Life
, Tiphareth (6-Beauty) is the Logos center, an objective link between
subjective-Creator and objective- Man (as above so below). Remembering
that the Paths are subjective and therefore Arcane, the link with the
objective 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 Hermit on both the Thoth and the SpellCaster's Tarot, is
carrying a "light" of his "own inner Sun", or "enlightenment"; On the Thoth card this is a lantern, with an inner sun and on the SpellCaster's Tarot, the Hermit is holding a candle, with hand presented to stop the wind from extinguishing it.
The hand is, man's ultimate creative tool, hence, attributed to Yod
and The Hermit is the very hand of the Divine Creative. On The Thoth Hermit is the Orphic Egg
wrapped in a serpent, that represents the ancient Orphic Mysteries interpretation of the Cosmos encircled by the Fiery Spirit,
On the Thoth Tarot illustration of the Hermit, the three Headed Dog (Cerberus) that "guards the gates of Hell"--has been tamed by the Hermit.
The spermatozoon image, on the Thoth Tarot card, represents
the Yod energy in the material world, while the completely hidden
staff transmits the sexual force. Aliester Crowley stated, "In this Triumph is then the entire mystery of Life in its most secret workings.
The Lamp refers to Tiphareth, and makes a statement about the very
nature of Light. The Yod is The Hermit, The Path of Heh is The Emperor and the Path of 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 Tiphareth to
Chokmah, and back to Chesed. Thus we have a very valuable subject of
The Tarot Card of the Hermetic Qabalah-Key 9: THE HERMIT.
may have noticed the different spellings of the Hebrew letters when
interpreted in English----Kaballa-Qaballah-Qabalah-Caballah or
Yod- or sometimes-Yud---this is because there is no real English spelling of Hebrew
Letters so spelling is up to the interpreter. The Letter Yud is spelled
as Yod in the Qabalah as in: The Path of Yod-The Hermit; 9th Key.
The Biblical story of Yod (Yud) is about Yosef [Joseph]. The English "J" didn't exist until the thirteenth century.
Then Yoseph said to his brothers,"Come
close to me if you please", and they came close. And he said," I am
Joseph your brother- it is me, whom you sold into Egypt. And now, be not
distressed, nor reproach yourselves for having sold me here, for it was
to be provider that God sent me ahead of you. For this has been two of
the hunger years in the midst of the land, and there are yet five years
in which there shall be neither plowing nor harvest. Thus God has sent
me ahead of you to ensure your survival in the land and to sustain you
for a momentous deliverance."
--Genesis 45: 4-8
The story of Yosef--
the Hebrew letter Yod. A young man was sold into slavery by his
brothers because of his magic ability to foretell events in his dreams.
This form of clairvoyance, disturbed his brothers, so they plotted to
dispose of Yosef---but for a profit! So they took him out to the desert
and sold him into slavery. Upon coming home they told their father
(Yacob) that he was killed and showed him the blood stained special robe
of many colors as proof. The Tarot Hermit Card represents this story
well with its depiction of a lone man in the desert carrying his own
lantern of light. We know by reading the story of Yosef, that instead
of bemoaning his fate, Yosef "knew himself" and with this inner trust
that nothing happens without a "good" (God) reason to stay open minded
and therefore, use his talents as needed.
Later, because he was fearlessly able
to use his abilities to interpret the Pharaohs dreams, he became a
court adviser, and was able to help his starving family survive. He
could have sought revenge, although he did ask for an apology;
However, when he saw the remorse of his brothers he forgave them.
Therefore, the Tarot-Hermit reminds us that to live in the past, is a "wanna-be-person",
a phantom personality rooted in the past can't live today nor is it
able to be open to the opportunities that are presented to it.
Since its eyes are focused on the past, this past personality is unable
to see in the now of the moment and is not a Real Person
personality that carries its own Light, (enlightenment) is a personality
of the Now; one who is present and of the Soul/Real Person. Hence, such a personality
trusts the Inner-Light that radiates it, and knows that "things happen"
for a life expanding purpose. This Story of Yosef and the Power of Yod,
explains the introspective Tarot Hermit.
The personal story of Yosef
represents those dark moments in your life when you are confused,
misunderstood, underappreciated and depressed by events. During these
moments of spiritual and physical darkness is when we must look toward
our own "inner Light" that leads us forward in Life. The Power of
believing in yourself comes from a knowing that your life is full
of purpose (God doesn't create what God doesn't want) and everything
that happens to you is for a life-motion expanding purpose. Recognize
your uniqueness, and that your special talents can be applied to expand
and liberate your world from the past limitations. Meditate on the Power
of Forgiveness, and release yourself into the World of "I Am" rather
than the death of "I Ain't", that living in the past as a "self denial"
can only give us. Be the only one who defines you, solitary in your
self-trust, and walk in the deserts of individuality undivided from your
Soul----Soul and body are a erotic ternary communion of "I Am Me"! Only your
inner Self can Define your outer-self in this functioning
communion---you are not man-made---------you are a Spiritual creation! "
Above all things, know thyself!"
As stated:The Tarot- Hermit is an expression of The Fool,
same energy that is at once wise old age of the Child (Son/Sun of God)
and the virgin (Virgo) beginning of a new sequence. However, it is often
difficult for the Student of the Qaballah to understand that Yod is
also the simple letter meaning: Sexual Love.
This Hermit card is
of union. It symbolizes the first point of awareness by the Higher Self
(Yosef) of the Supreme Spiritual Self (Yod) that can be explained
often in only the most erotic of imagery or in "sacred symbols", such as
the Lingam-Yoni images of the Hindu or the more subjective lemnistrate and/or Mobius loop
the Magician card. This "lazy 8" symbol, shows one circle, one line, twisted into two circles. For that is the truth of the sexes.
But this card
is the essence of isolation and
singularity and is not about sexual coition. The sexuality here is self-contained
as it is the Communion of Two High States of Conscious Energy. Higher
self and Supreme Spiritual Self. The Higher Self being the builder of
The Personality, while the Supreme Spiritual Self is the Expression of
Spiral Energy----The Serpentine Conscious Energy. Yod
is related to Kether
is isolated at the top of the Tree of Life, and is self-contained. It
also forms the graphic root for all of the other letters of the Hebrew
alphabet. Therefore the Yod
is also phallic. It is the
Male-Fire-conscious and/or The Sun that rushes out toward the Female-Water-Unconscious and/or The Moon.
One cannot escape the erotic imagery which is often depicted On Hindu
Temples but it is rarely seen as one individual divine creative who is
made of two states of Spirit; One aspect of the One Mind,that is expressive and another aspect that is
Again, the beauty of the Tarot Trump,
is that they are subjective and require a deep inner contemplation to
begin understanding the "I Will Be", the "I Will Force" and "I Will Form" in Quantum invisiblity of
Self. For instance, Yod means Hand
which is humankind's most
creative tool when linked to imagination, the most creative Mind. The
open hand, besides blocking the wind, 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.Such as the keys of Qabalah and "the sands of Time" from which everything is formed.
In the Thoth and SpellCaster's illustration 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 percolates out of the vast sea of
consciousness that is Binah (The Scarlett Womb-man; man meaning Mind) who is represented
by the Red Robes of the Thoth Hermit. Or the simple Crescent Moon on the SpellCaster's Hermit card. The hand of God is a title also know to
be that of Moses, who led his people out of the desert into the
Often, the Hermit, who is Grandfather of the masculine trinity of Son, Father and Grandfather, is related to the Christ figure
but he is better related to the Hebrew pathfinder Moses, who led his
people across the Egyptian desert. In fact, an early Gnostic sect, The Simonion Gnostics,
that had taken its name from Simon- Magus, first described in the Acts of the Apostles
, that the Logos was objectified as Moses. These second century Gnostics taught that the Book of Exodus
was an allegory of the soul being led by the Logos (Moses/Hermit)
through the desert of human life into the spiritual promised land. Many
of us of the Western culture, know the story of Moses as a Thaumaturge
(Arch-magician), whose staff is a wand of enormous power that can
strike water from rock and turn into a serpent upon his bidding. The
"Magi's wand", turning into a serpent force, is an allegory that refers
to the use of Kundalini (Yod) force by the Adept Magician. This
serpentine force is a Sacred Fire
that is the essence of the Logos transmitted by the phallic wand. To a Tantric, this wand would be called the Divya Linga
: Divine Lingam. This Divine lingam is shown as Mose's / Thaumaturge's serpent staff.
In the more Arcane Mystery,The Yod itself
, represents the Phallus that ejaculates its fiery vibration into the Vast Red Sea of Binah, Mother's Blood. The Yod,
shown as a magician's Wand, or the wand in the hand of the Queen and Princesses. The mystery of the Wand is that it represents the Primal Phallic
expression into the Space-Womb- conception of all Form, Imagination.
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 physical symbol for him that "pollenates creation", is
the Spermatozoon where one alone fertilizes the Orphic egg. Thus in the
Thoth Tarot Hermit card we have the symbol of the Spermatozoon, and the
Orphic egg (the Universe) encompassed by a many colored serpent that
represents the iridescence of Mercury.
Hence, the spermatozoa is shown
on the Thoth card, next to the light of the Lantern that is held by the
Hermit, suggesting this very interpretation. Also in the light of the
Thoth Hermit's 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; Inner-Passions, that if are untamed
can become Hell. The one Head of Cerberus looking back, is
representative of keeping past memory (me) while the two heads forward,
suggest a Union that is progressive (I AM).
As stated before: The mysteries of Life
are truly shown in the Thoth Hermit Card, as we have
Yod=Phallus=Spermatozoon=Hand=Virgin (Astrological sign Virgo). The
Virgin conceptual meaning of ever-pure and totally innocent. What was not mentioned is that 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, if done as Magus, can also be called the Human Personality, who is itself, in a vast
desert of its own reality while floating in the Great Sea of Unconscious
energy known as the Universal Collective Unconscious; solitarily floating, for no one is
there but your own self-conceptions!
In a sense all of us are Hermits,for we never are made to think or feel
by "another". For our body is a Hermit, living in it's own waste
land or fertility, produced by what we think we feel; we cannot feel another person's thought so to blame another for your depression or happiness is pure denial.
We may react to the expressed thoughts of others, but that is us thinking about the
meaning of their Words and reacting to our own thought. Hence, not a truth,
not a real, just a self-centered phantom- perception of ourselves! If we
fear (fear failure, fear inferiority, fear ability, fear rejection 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 Tarot 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. Hence,
experiencing The Understanding of the Mother of all Form and the Fiery
Passion of the Father and know you are The Beautiful Child of
Goddess-God (The Divine Creative). 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.
Hence, 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". Me, who is
isolated in our own perspectives and errantly demanding that everyone else
worship our illusions, as we do, is to create a self waste land that is our own
Both Tarot Cards suggest that it's best to understand that
"only to thine own self " can we be true. Our Soul/Psyche is a
mirror, so it is best to treat others as you wish to be treated and
enjoy the different perspectives of "others" 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 core of 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. Therefore, we are transmitting our reality
upon another, as if we created them. 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. For this Universe is merely a Simulation of the Divine Creative, as it invents It's Self.
To those persona's who are
on a mundane journey where a better credit score is the ultimate quest,
this card has mundane meanings in a reading; However, as a meditation
device, skyring this card will aid in understanding the God Trinity of
THE HERMIT -YOD, THE EMPEROR-HEH, AND THE HIEROPHANT-VAU. There is a
clue to a deeper understanding in the placement of the letters, Yod,
Heh, Vau, on the Tree of Life. as the letters work together as a trinity
from Chesed (Mercy) to Tiphareth (Beauty) to Chokmah (Wisdom) and back to Chesed. Many rewards come to those who research, study and meditate introspectively.
In summery: The Hebrew letter Yod, shown bottom
left of Thoth card and is the
foundation of all other Hebrew letters, which are combinations of Yod in
various ways. Being the first letter of Yod Heh Vau Heh (Tetragrammaton), Yod
represents the The Father who is Wisdom (Chokma); he is the Highest form
of Mercury, and the Co-Creator of all worlds who is known as the Logos.
On the Thoth card,
the Hermit is arranged in the form of Yod carrying a blazing lantern,
whose central sigil is in the likeness of the Great King of Fire (Yod is
the secret fire) and is the Sun/Son itself. He wears the colored cloak
of Mother Binah/Understanding, in whom he gestates.
By realizing this symbolic card, we know that the Hermit is both creative and is the fluid essence of Light, i.e. the Life Force
of the Universe. His fertility is shown by the back ground of wheat
sheaves on the Thoth Card.
There is a reason the Trump, Keys, are called the Major Arcana,
(major secrets) as yet another Thoth Deck Card, Key 9, The Hermit, show
us a pictorial representation of the entire mystery of Life in its most
secret workings. We are looking at the "First Fertile ejaculation of
Spritual-Solar energy as visible Light" in the dark energy universe.
The finest thing in the world is knowing how to belong to oneself.
-Michel de Montaigne, Of Solitude
Therefore in mundane terms, the Hermit card represents the Universal Principle of completion, contemplation, and introspection.
The Hermit symbolizes the "wise-way- shower" who lights the way of
wisdom in the experiences of life and is an invaluable inner resource
for assisting us and others in our daily lives.
Hermit, looks much like a Magus or Magician so I think it is best to see the correspondence between the two Tarot Cards of the Magus and Hermit.
Correspondences: 9-The Hermit & 1-The Magus.
The association of these cards with Astrology is in the sign Virgo and Planet Mercury.
In astrology Mercury rules both Gemini and Virgo and in Tarot, Mercury corresponds to both the Lovers and the Hermit.
The astrological form of the Hermit is I learn and the astrological motion of the Magus (magician in some tarot decks) is I seek myself through what I serve.
The corresponding Rune-stones are
, the harvest rune-stone, beneficial outcomes, and the span of one year.
Also, the Magus-Algiz, the rune of protection, the spiritual warrior, the one whose battle is with himself.
Algiz (also Elhaz) is the name conventionally given to the " z-rune" ᛉ
of the Elder Futhark runic alphabet. Its transliteration is z,
understood as a phoneme of the Proto-Germanic language, the terminal *z
continuing Proto-Indo-European terminal *s.
The associated primary colors Yellow-Green
Secondary colors lime-green. This correspondence of the Hermit and the
Magus is also associated with the Third Chakra (solar plexus) which
governs will power, wishes, metabolism, humor, wisdom, ego, reactions,
ideas, intellectual analysis, and fear of rejection. The Third Chakra is
the spiral energy of the intellect.
The stones/minerals associated
with this correspondence are: Peridot, moldavite, jade, jadeite,
aventurine, green kunzite, green containing tourmalines of uvite,
feridavite, verdelite, watermelon-yellow green fluorites and chalcedony.
Musical notes for the Hermit-F and for the Magus-E.
Letters of the Qaballah are: Hermit-Simple letter- Sexual Love (English translation) The Hermits Path is : Yod , The Intelligence of Will. The symbol of meaning is : Hand.
Qabalistic letter for the Magus
; Double letter- Life-Death and the Path is: Beth or Bet,
the Intelligence of Transparency
. Symbolic meaning-House.
The plant essences: The Hermit- Sage, wintergreen, and caraway. The Magician- Dill, lemongrass, sorax or Benzoin.
The psychic energy involved
in the correspondence of the Hermit and the Magus, is associated with
meditation and the ability to surrender the conscious mind to the
super-conscious (self to Greater Self) which unlocks exploration and
knowledge of the whole self for the expansion and liberation of the
personality from self-imposed limits of knowledge and understanding. In
other words, the key to "Holy Spirit". Therefore, skrying is enhanced
when all these mineral, plant, and musical note correspondences are used
together in one sitting.
To be an excellent reader of Tarot-a Tarot Seer-
we must remember that the conscious mind learns only by association.
From letters, to word, to idea, all of which is an association in the
subconscious mind. A correspondence that has taken effort and years
to the point of automatically producing associations with out any
The conscious mind functions solely
through associations/correspondences in everything it learns, and
thinks. Sharing common associations produces success in communication
which is why we have a "school system". This is ability to see
correspondence also aids the Tarot Seer in communicating messages from
the Invisible (Divine) to the querent (asker of questions) so that
clarity in communication is served. Messages from the Divine are in
energetic form and must be given image to be understood by the process
of association. To someone who is not a Qabalist, this all may seem
"deep" which communicates too much effort to some, but to the diligent
seer---deep is where we reside.
When the Hermit card is thrown during a reading, it implies:
- That knowledge is needed, meditation and prayer are to be used to hear the inner self.
- A deep desire to follow that which is meaningful and/or heartfelt to you.
- Time to gather enough data and information in order to sort things out.
- Introspection which may require you to withdraw from others or the usual environment in order to gain the perspectives needed.
- A stage in life where Wisdom is sought.
- This is a great card for skrying, as it is of the Inner Wisdom that we so much need to KNOW OURSELVES!
- That knowledge is needed in the querent's life and having the need to listen closely to the "master within.
- Contemplation, introspection by means of meditation is a method of achieving such a goal of inner wisdom.
querent is or will be soon experiencing wisdom long sought and obtained
from Above (enlightenment from the Inner Self). In other words, Divine
- Also there is a suggestion of knowledge needed by the querent who must listen closely to the Inner Self in order to obtain it.
- We have here the Principle of introspection, of completion and Space/Time.
querent themselves, may be experiencing the up-welling of the inner
mediator, sage, philosopher, and/or wise man, within, and thus
manifesting them in their life.
- There is also a suggestion
of detaching from others, so that one may gather data and information
in order to figure things out.
- The querent may be
experiencing the need to analyze, or understand their role in life, or
in relationships be they, in a group setting such as job, or family or
even in a spiritual group, etc.
- This is a card of
attainment rather than a journey or quest as The Hermit shows us that we
must have the strength to lose our man made outer self (our-self- of
man-made definitions) before we can find the Divine Self within.
card is hard to ill define...since even "being Lost" and alone in our
feelings, is the beginning of "seeing the light". For being lost and
alone in yourself, means you know that you "don't know who you are",
which is the beginning of "letting go and letting God' reclaim your
identity as " another way to be Me".
- It is about the principle of introspection, completion and space.
is representative of the deeper marriage of the Divine within
ourselves, and is often a message that more knowledge is needed.
- This is definitely a "above all things, know thyself' message.
Hermit represents the inward search to find personal truth, where
despair, isolation, as well as, accomplishments and gains, must be
- Also, Personal Integrity, The I AM Me, which is always be true to you.
