IX. The Hermit: Meditation

Explanation of this card

“Meditation comes in many forms and shapes and is a natural talent available to all.”

The road to enlightenment is paved by the exploration of the soul. In quiet moments, we find answers otherwise drowned out by noise.

Challenge: Relaxation Anxiety

“Western laziness”, the Tibetan teacher Sogyal Rinpoche says, “consists of cramming our lives with compulsive activity, so there is no time to address the real issues.” Culturally it is often seen as commendable to keep busy, yet we all need that quiet time to find out what we really want, feel and are capable of.

Characteristics of The Hermit

Internalization, quietude, creation of space and time for the I. During meditation, space and time is no longer bound to units. In the spiritual world, being on the path is about the Journey.

Individual properties of this card

Trump Cards: Evolving Soul

The Trump Cards, or archetypes are numbered I through XXI, and are distributed over three layers of seven cards each.

1. the Temporal Body (cards I-VII)
2. the Evolving Soul (cards VIII-XIV)
3. the Eternal Spirit (cards XV-XXI)

The Storyteller is the unique Nil Card, who ‘ignorantly’, without preconceived notions, wanders through the experiences of the other 21 trump cards.

The second layer of the Trump Cards (cards VIII-XIV) addresses the evolving soul or peace of mind. This reflects the journey that the soul makes during its earthly existence.

Number: 9

Every number has a unique energy, and therefore a unique meaning and role in the interpretation of the card, in combination with the color or the archetype.

The 9 adds your own talents to what is already there. The 9 represents the spiritualization of the project we are working on, or of the life path we are walking.
