Listen to this audio file I recorded for you, or read the text below. If this sounds too "newagy" for you, close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly ten times and think about something wonderful that makes you happy. With your feet planted comfortably and firmly on the ground, gently close your eyes. Feel the earth beneath your heels, toes and pads of your feet. Clear your mind of all thoughts but love and joy. Imagine tiny roots growing from the soles of your feet, reaching deep into the ground, connecting and intertwining with the roots of plants and trees around you.
Grow your roots deeper — thicker — past insects and through rocks, right into the core of the Earth.
Feel your connection with the planet. Feel its warmth, love, strength and joy. Now imagine a pearl-white light emanating from your heart, enveloping your body and illuminating the area around you - brightening all shadows and darkness. Visualize a purple shimmer rippling through the white light as it calms and protects you. Numbered 18 and 19 respectively, we can see the numerology easily. The Moon is treated to numerological reduction, where eighteen is separated into single digits and becomes one plus eight equals nine.
In the Pythagorean number scale, the number nine is called the ennead which you may recognise if you are familiar with the enneagram of personality definition.
Modern numerology counts one through to nine as its core numbers not including the master numbers of 11, 22 and so on. The Pythagoreans counted ten and called this number the dekad. If you follow astrology, or the Golden Dawn system of astrology associated with the minor arcana numbered cards, you will recognise the root of the word decan, or decanate.
Also, related is the decimal, decade etc. For the Hermit to relate to the Sun, we must also turn to the Pythagorean system of adding the ten to the nine rather than reducing the numbers as with the Moon. I find this part really exciting as we now see what the Hermit is striving for — spiritual attainment.
The most interesting aspect of this description for me is the Midnight Sun. I introduced the notion of the influence of the Renaissance mystics and alchemists in converting Father Time to the Hermit and it is here where we can see this influence. It symbolized the spirit in man shining through the darkness of his human organisms.
Of course, the Hermit carries a lamp as his guiding light. It shows him the way through the dark and the shadows — which is the Moon landscape with its traps and ghouls and hounds of hell to snare the uninitiated. Hall earlier in this chapter on the sun describes the importance of gold and the sun as being the spirit within everything.
If we are to visually understand this then we should see the Hermit in between the Moon and the Sun.

This is better thought of vertically to represent the spiritual aspirations of the Hermit. This simple explanation and visual depiction is also an essential aid in understanding the worrying nature of Virgo to the exaltation and expression of joy and happiness in life. It is easy then, to correlate the four minor arcana cards that accompany the Hermit. This provides a beautiful visual depiction of the spiritual growth the Hermit is so hungry for:.
Initially I felt it appropriate to place the 9 of Pentacles as the highest minor arcana card, but this is wrong. If we start with the Moon, entering the dark and dangerous landscape, we experience the mental torture of the cruelty of the 9 of Swords. Wands are also called staffs in some decks and traditions. Anyone who remembers Gandalph in the Lord of the Rings will understand the power of the staff. This takes us to the Hermit himself. Equipped with his staff and lamp, he has navigated his way out of the Moon landscape, found himself and his strength, overcome his own demons and now projects upwards to the safer landscape of the 9 of Pentacles.
Here he can rest and enjoy his earthly possessions, the woodland, the flora and fauna. There is respite here and he could easily and happily stay here, but there is another plane to climb and he does this through the 9 of Cups.

As a further expression of comfort he could stay here also but he is reaching for the Sun — his enlightenment. It is an excellent metaphor for life and the struggles we face, depicted succinctly and in a way we can understand. This visual depiction and metaphor does not solely belong to Virgo, of course, this metaphor for life is open to all. I would wager though, that the depth of worry, defence, comfort and happiness is understood by them to a finer degree.
We definitely know how to worry and find ourselves lost on the lower two rungs of the ladder. The trick, for a Virgo, is how to know when to call time and move onto the next level without sweating the details. The 8 of Pentacles gives us the clue as to why this may be difficult. The Golden Dawn refined the system of astrology used in the tarot and it is this system you are most likely to be familiar with when reading correspondences on blogs and in books about tarot.
Although Arthur Waite paid no mind to the decans set out by the Golden Dawn nor the Qabalah when he created his deck with Pamela Coleman Smith, the decanate system has become associated with tarot across the board and is a useful addition to the meanings and definitions of the minor arcana. The three main cards associated with the Hermit in this system are:. The most striking element that runs through these explorations are the apparent contradictions and depth of landscape that Virgo plays with and engages.
As an earth sign, there are practical matters that are foremost in the mind. Money and possessions in the form of the pentacle dictate also, but the lofty spiritual aspirations of the Hermit are also vying for the attention of the Virgoan individual. The push and pull of these can be strong but it must be remembered that being poor is not necessary for spiritual growth. Of course you can follow the Hermit directly if you wish and abandon everything you own to be free, you can become a nun or a monk also. This may not necessarily guarantee your enlightenment. What I believe the Hermit shows us through Virgo is that we can have a rich and varied life that is wealthy, abundant and also spiritual.
Overcoming the 9 of Swords is key in making this happen — not worrying what other people may think of you, nor worrying about their judgements of your choices and decisions etc. If you think about this from a Virgo perspective, we often put the other before ourselves but if we reverse this, if we put our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health before others, we are better placed to be a more effective member of the family and the wider community.
Virgo needs to learn this. Tarot can also help us with this combined journey, but by examining the cards relating to Virgo or your own sun sign , you can gain a better understanding of the drivers, motivations, pitfalls and help available to make your life more rewarding, to enjoy your possessions, spiritual pursuits and make some sense of your birth sign, birth cards, all those idiosyncrasies and contradictions and how they relate to you.

I found a lot of myself in it. I am also a Virgo, though my Numerology chart is full of 7 instead of 2.

One thing I do not agree with, is the reduction of the Sun to 9. I see the Sun having much more in common with the aces, the Magician and the Wheel than the 9. Warmly, Catherine. Thanks for getting back to me. I am not familiar with the pythagorean dekad system, while I am with Numerology.
To each his own, I do like what you wrote about the Hermit light shining through his journey toward the Sun. I will have to go back and read the post again. Anyway, thanks. It raised some good points. I like to dig and I found it very informing and enlightening pardon the unintended pun to see where these adaptations came from. What I like about the older systems is their mystical approach and influence and it was what I saw as a wide gap of difference between the Hermit, Virgo and the Golden Dawn decan cards — earthly and practical paired with highly mystic and spiritual, they seemed so far apart to me.
Glad you enjoyed the article. Hi Catherine, I loved this post! So full of good information, some of which I have read Manly P. Hall particularly but never thought to put together myself. My name is the same as yours except my mum spelled it Katherine and I too am a Virgo, September 5th. I have been fascinated with this subject myself when a witchy pal of my sister told me Virgo is linked with the Hermit. I have always liked this card RWS and also the 9 of pentacles. Now I think perhaps I intuitively knew these cards were special to our cosmic situation, so to speak.
Really great post overall so thank you. Virgo or Virgin also means pure. I take this to mean purity of speech, we do not lie; purity of thought because we also are not self-deceptive; purity of action, when we do something we do it, we are not secretly doing other things or subconciously working towards a different goal. Also this word play highlights that perfectionist tendency.
Sometimes I end up accomplishing nothing because of it! However, hearing another Virgo mention how tough that is gives me much hope, so again, thanks so much for this very enlightening post. Have a great day! The Hermit In tarot, perhaps the best known association to Virgo is of course, the Hermit.
