So many of you have written me to say you’re going through some BIG stuff right now. That transformational material that smells like sewage, but that makes you sweet-smelling like roses down the line.
That’s the stuff I’m talking about.
I’m knee deep in it too.
I’ve been doing a lot more tarot readings for my spiritually-minded friends and The Hermit card has come up too often for me to ignore. I think the archetype of the Hermit is coming into play right now in the collective psyche.
The numerology of 9 represents the essence of the cosmic teacher, the philosopher, the reclusive yogi and the humanitarian. There are also 9 months of gestation in the womb which represents the end of the birth cycle. You are awaiting your re-entry in a luminous womb of night.
The Hermit card illuminates the concepts of solitude, silence, meditation, wisdom and leadership by example.
(9 also happens to be my lifepath number. You can figure out yours by adding all of the numbers in your birthdate, i.e. 1/11/1968 = 1+11+1+9+6+8 = 36 = 3+6 = 9)
When enmeshed in the energy of 9 our inclination is to go within. The journey is a spiralling inward, rather than moving out into the world. Keeping on top of our marketing and promotion schedules will feel like we’re climbing Mt. Everest. It’s unnatural and feels icky, generally speaking.
Use this time to work on projects that can help others reflect on their life path and/or soul purpose.
A few suggestions:
Wishing you a radiant and contemplative week.
