The Hermit

The Hermit

Today with Mars conjuncting Chiron you may taking an active part in retreating from all of the commotion that surrounds you and moving toward a place of meditation and quiet reflection.

The Hermit card refers to the yearning for wisdom and knowledge that so many of us possess but so few of us take the time to seek out and develop.

This Hermit — from the beautiful Light Grey Tarot — appears as an old wizard making his way under the cloak of darkness, with only his walking stick and lantern to light the way. An owl (representing wisdom) flies over his shoulder and the crescent moon (representing clarity) shines brightly in the night sky.

Mars and Chiron come together today in Pisces. And while Mars is the planet associated with action and motivation, those functions can get lost under the self-sacrificing shadow of Chiron. But put these two entities together in Pisces and magic can transpire.

Psychic perceptions are heightened. Consciousness is expanded. Intuition increases. Dreams become more vivid.  And the desire (Mars) to funnel all of the Utopian (Pisces) qualities of compassion, idealism and unconditional love into something meaningful (Chiron) results.

The Hermit card is not about avoidance and isolation. It’s about finding your inner light and choosing to follow it. This is especially important when referenced against the Mars / Chiron conjunction, which is bound to intensify the urge to find answers to your most pressing questions.

Today you get to choose whether you’re lighting your own way or acting as a guidepost for those who have wandered away from theirs. Both are valid endeavors ,and only you will know which is the right path for you.

As the Hermit card also refers to turning inward, there is an entire spectrum of information — from the depths of the psyche to the heights of conscious awareness that can be accessed through this process.

Ace of Pentacles

 Ace of Pentacles

Today’s Moon in Gemini may have you thinking about the world of opportunities that are now before you — to express yourself creatively, expand your social horizons, and generate more prosperity.

The Ace of Pentacles — like all Aces — represents the start of something new, and in this case it happens to relate to money. As in new financial opportunities coming your way. While you probably won’t see a windfall, it’s a positive affirmation that you’re putting your energy into the right areas.

You may have recently gotten a raise, started a new job or become the benefactor of someone else’s generosity. You could also be starting to see returns on your earlier investments. Either way, you should have more opportunities and more financial resources at your disposal than you’ve had in recent days.

You may also feel that your luck is changing. As the Ace of Pentacles is associated with a change in fortune — a positive change as I also see Aces as “Yes” cards — as long as the “yes” answer is a positive affirmation. It’s telling you to keep up the good work, to go after your dreams, and to be open to all that the Universe has to offer you.

In this rendition of the card we see bright golden stars super-imposed over infinite overlapping smaller stars. There’s also a golden tree whose vast roots and limbs spread out across the tiny villages that are sprinkled among the stars. If you look closely you can see homes, trees, mountains, lakes and even people in there.
