MEME REALLY IS ME ME



You are The Hermit



Prudence, Caution, Deliberation.



The Hermit points to all things hidden, such as knowledge and inspiration,hidden enemies. The illumination is from within, and retirement from participation in current events.



The Hermit is a card of introspection, analysis and, well, virginity. You do not desire to socialize; the card indicates, instead, a desire for peace and solitude. You prefer to take the time to think, organize, ruminate, take stock. There may be feelings of frustration and discontent but these feelings eventually lead to enlightenment, illumination, clarity.



The Hermit represents a wise, inspirational person, friend, teacher, therapist. This a person who can shine a light on things that were previously mysterious and confusing.

Of course, Jahteh, as previously mentioned I can always loan you some small people to have at your house for say, a long time, thereby impacting on
your state of hermitness. Just say the word....

Apropos of nothing, word verification looks like a very naughty celtic swear word.. or name...

Yes, thats you to a tee!

On an inner level Cronos, the Hermit, is an image of the last of the four Moral Lessons which the Fool must learn: the lesson of time and the limitations of mortal life. Nothing is allowed to live beyond its span, and nothing remains unchanged; and this is a simple and obvious facet of life which despite its simplicity and obviousness is painful for us to learn and often only comes with age and hard experience. Cronos is a god who both embodies the meaning of time and also rebels against it. So he is humbled and overthrown, and learns wisdom in solitude and silence. In many ways he is an image of the body itself, which inexorably grows older yet rebels against its mortal fate. The problem of solitude and the discovery that one is ultimately alone and mortal are dilemmas which all human beings must face. Acceptance of this condition is also, in a mysterious way, a true inner separation from the parents and from childhood, because it means the sacrifice of the fantasy that someday, somewhere, someone will come and magically make it all better. `And then they lived happily ever after' is a sentiment that cannot survive in Cronos' world. Youth passes into maturity, and can never be regained in any concrete way; but memory and wisdom are distilled from the passage of time, and also the gift of patience.
The lesson of the Hermit is one which cannot be learned through struggle and conquest. Thus Cronos stands in counterpoint to Heracles, for 'struggle will not stop time. Only acceptance of tune yields the rewards of' Cronos' Golden Age. Through enforced limitation and through circumstances which only time, not battle, can release, the Fool develops the reflective, introverted, solitary stance of Cronos the Hermit. Thus Cronos is in some ways an image of humility, which often begins with humiliation in the face of that which we cannot change, but which can result in a quality of stillness and serenity without which we cannot endure the obstacles and disappointments which life sometimes brings. However clever the intellect, however warm the heart, however strong the sense of identity, the vicissitudes of life would shatter us if we were unable to find somewhere within the patience and prudence of the Hermit, who teaches us how to endure and wait in silence. The negative face of Cronos is calcification, a stubborn resistance to change and the passage of time. Butt the creative face of this ancient and ambivalent god is the shrewdness to change what we can, to accept. what we cannot, and to wait in silence until we can tell the difference.

I took the test. Apparently I'm Mr. Bun the Baker.

River said...

Apparently I'm the Moon..........
This card represents hope, expectation and bright promises.......
Well, the hope part is true. I live in hope of winning the lottery.

Lord Sedgwick said...

I didn't take the test, but I'm reliably informed by people of high learning that I am 'Cyril, the Spastic Colon', the significant other of Mr. Bun the Baker.

Bugger, this resonates. I thought I'd snap you on this one too JahTeh. However as it turns out tonight, LUCKY ME I am The Wheel of Fortune.

Where is my fortune? Where is my fortune?

Who stole my cheese? PUSS-KAT?

Mindy said...

Apparently I'm the High Priestess. Don't know if it actually sounds at all like me, but I'm taking it.


The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Ozfemme said...

You can all hail me. I'm the Empress.

JahTeh said...

Bella, small people are welcome at this gingerbread cottage as the oven is always lit but you have to take my mother in return.

Zoe, My life exactly, I cannot change anything.

I'm sorry River, I have dibs on the lottery this week.

Bella, in my Tarot book The Empress is the mother card and isn't that just you.

Mindy, supernatural, secret knowledge, what's the lotto numbers?

Fleetwood, I see your buns and raise you a spastic colon.

Sorry Caroline but the Wheel of fortune is how to make yourself fortunate in the world. I keep getting in my spreads and it doesn't do me any good.

Caroline said...

I always read it as a sort of 'its up to you what happens'. Bugger.

Morgana said...

And You shouldn't want to change anything, the Hermit is the ultimate state.
You can guess what my reading/card was, yes?

Ya to humility, I percieve that it remains in very few these days.....how sad.

Much love XXX

Sharon Damnable said...

....finally had time to fly by, I am The High Priestess ~

......or perhaps Miss Scarlet in the library with a candlestick.

I see the Wheel Of Fortune as change for the better though, all things change and we with them.

I was the Hermit for a long time, then became the Fool, now I'm the High Priestess.....

Funny old life

Mindy said...

Sorry Jateh, I don't think lotto numbers count as arcane information. Otherwise I'd have had a suspiciously lucky run on lotto.

JahTeh said...

Truly a Hermit, Morgana, someone who doesn't want anyone in their life who isn't worthwhile but just look at my fellow bloggers, all worthwhile gems.

A visit from the Rose of Sharon who seems to be rising in wisdom and I love your gilded Tarot.

Mindy, no luck here either. Apparently you're supposed to think lucky thoughts and draw the luck towards you. Clear the mind of negative images and all will be well. The best I've done lately is $10 on a scratchie card.

Bloody hell... I'm the Hanged Man... but it reads okay maybe...
"You are the Hanged Man
Self-sacrifice, Sacrifice, Devotion, Bound.
With the Hanged man there is often a sense of fatalism, waiting for something to happen. Or a fear of loss from a situation, rather than gain.
The Hanged Man is perhaps the most fascinating card in the deck. It reflects the story of Odin who offered himself as a sacrifice in order to gain knowledge. Hanging from the world tree, wounded by a spear, given no bread or mead, he hung for nine days. On the last day, he saw on the ground runes that had fallen from the tree, understood their meaning, and, coming down, scooped them up for his own. All knowledge is to be found in these runes.
The Hanged Man, in similar fashion, is a card about suspension, not life or death. It signifies selflessness, sacrifice and prophecy. You make yourself vulnerable and in doing so, gain illumination. You see the world differently, with almost mystical insights.

The Hermit sounds pretty good too...

JahTeh said...

Therese, that card is you to a tee!

GreenSmile said...

I half expected it was a crock when I got to the last question and it assumed "spiritual" and "atheist" are mutually exclusive. I am resolutely both.

I definitely told it I was male and it came up with "priestess"

BTW, have you got a charm to keep davo from drifting entirely out of orbit?
