Emotional knowing comes very differently for me than intellectual knowing. Sometimes it’s a nudge, sometimes a whap, but it sweeps through like a hot flash, near instantaneous. A visceral experience, but seems to work in conjunction with my Gemini moon rationality. For it to stick, I have to go back and fill in the blanks with my brain. If I don’t do the processing part, I don’t get full access to the benefit of the insight.
Today’s Tarot Forecast is the inverted Hermit, “The Magus of the Voice of Light,” associated with Virgo. Tarot nines usually talk of endurance or gestation—for a process, nines mark the turning point. At this stage, endurance or compromise may have been called for to make integration possible. The Hermit is a seeker, turning inward to fashion all the little bits and pieces of wisdom accumulated into a comprehensive worldview. Inverted, he may just be getting started or in the process of finishing up. Or maybe something is standing in his way. Hopefully not wishful thinking! But he’s a practical sort, so even denial will not interfere with his quest too long.
Virgo thinks. Virgo reasons. Virgo analyzes and weighs arguments, and Virgo identifies the weak spots and shores them up. So that’s the task at hand, while looking for the deepest truths surrounding your current quests. The question needs to move from isolated experience to a coherent whole to allow for assimilation of any wisdom hidden therein.
Even if this card is reversed, I see him as an excellent sign of being on the right track. Maybe he’s prodding you to look deeper for your answers, or maybe he’s suggesting you welcome some new ideas into the mix to fill remaining gaps. But either way, you’re near the deeper truth, and that’s always good news.
How’s your seeking going?
