    Summer is winding down with the coming shift from Virgo into Libra. Although it may seem unusual to associate the figure of a Hermit with Virgo, there is an Alchemical significance to this sign that can easily be overlooked.

    The sign of Virgo can also reference the "prima materia" of the Alchemists — the "virgin material" of creation. From this perspective, key IX, The Hermit, can be viewed as looking out with wisdom over a field of pure potential.

    The light he holds can be interpreted as the light of the heart, which he can use to help him illuminate the path that he will create, slowly and methodically with each step of his journey.
