The tarot cards hold special meanings, warnings, characteristics?and actions that may need to be taken in order to change your course in life.?Keep in mind that?some aspects are changeable and some are not. It is all up to you. With the Hermit card as the tarot card for the week of 12-9-12, it shows up at a very appropriate time of the year. With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays and running around trying to find that “perfect” gift, this may be a week to step back and catch your breath. Hermit reminds you to reflect on what the holidays mean to you or maybe how you can help others throughout the season. Others are willing to give a lot of free advice at this time of year, but you may be better served to find the answers you seek within yourself. You may benefit from some solitude at a tranquil spot. Beware of feelings of rejection, loneliness or being unwanted. If you let your ego get in the way, you may find yourself acting very foolish. Also, don’t be surprised if there is a cancellation or postponement of plans. At the end of the week, you decide if the Hermit card appeared in the upright or reversed position for you.? ?
MAJOR ARCANA NUMBER 9
ASTROLOGICAL SIGN or PLANET: VIRGO, MERCURY
The Hermit card, Major Arcana, denotes a need to have some space between yourself and the every day hustle and bustle of a busy world. It is necessary for the Hermit to retreat. Happiness for the Hermit requires seclusion, freedom from material wants and time for intense introspection. The answers cannot be found in the physical world. The truths he seeks are internal and spiritual. The Hermit is not arrogant or egotistical. His compassion is used to help others on their path. The distraction of a well-developed social life can only impede his quest for personal truths. Although not anything remotely resembling an extrovert, the Hermit does need to share time with others so that he can learn, teach, guide or be guided. The Hermit?s time spent with people depletes his energy quickly. This is a time that you may want to meditate, reevaluate the direction your life is taking and further develop your own spirituality.
In the reversed position, the Hermit card signifies loneliness, self-pity, immaturity and acting hastily without thinking. It may indicate that you or someone you know is claiming to know more than they really do and is boasting to be the expert. You may be living in the past and refusing to look at your current situation and make changes. Perhaps you have isolated yourself to an extreme and you may be feeling very alone. Do not become so self-absorbed that you isolate yourself from your loved ones. On the other hand, you might have such an exaggerated fear of loneliness, that you are staying in an unhealthy relationship to avoid the emptiness. The card may also be an indication that you have set aside all the spiritual knowledge you have or that you have lost your spiritual self. Also, there is a lack of accepting the consequences of your behavior. This card may be asking if you are getting the best advice available from someone or are you being too arrogant to listen to those who might help you. You have become inflexible. Are you taking responsibility for your own actions or are you blaming the consequences on others? This may be a time to step up to the plate and face reality.

With the holiday season upon us, you might notice your stress levels rising. Like it or not, you will be close to family, friends, co-workers and even strangers. Emotions run high during office and dinner parties, shopping malls and waiting in long lines. To get through this time of year with little or no emotional damage, take a tip from the psychics.
Whether or not you are psychic, you can use these methods to protect yourself from harboring another person?s negative emotions, either from the physical or spirit worlds. Your mind and body are great receivers. Sensitivity to stimuli around you triggers gut feelings on an emotional level. Although you cannot avoid all of your emotional responses, you can protect yourself from many of the unwanted ones. These negative feelings may not have come from within you; they may have come from an outside source.
The auras around your body reveal information about your emotions and responses. Because you can project your auras to others, this makes you vulnerable to other people?s aura projections.
For example, some people have difficulty being in large crowds or get the feeling that someone is sucking out all of their positive energies, like a psychic vampire. This makes them feel dizzy and closed in ? not feeling like themselves and even having disturbing dreams. Whether you are a psychic, empath, intuitive, highly sensitive person or a healer working with energies, you have probably experienced these feelings at some time in your life.
At times it is difficult to identify the cause of your discomfort. It can take a lot of soul searching and insight into your encounters with others. It may take another psychic to help pinpoint the source, as he or she is sensitive to positive and negative energies, and particularly to those coming from the spirit world.
For example, you may be enjoying yourself at a party and all of a sudden you experience a downward spiral and anxiety. You feel overwhelmed, want to get out and do not understand why. Don’t blame yourself. These feelings might be caused by another individual at the party who is harboring negative energy or a lot of sadness due to either his/her own bad memories about the holidays or is reminded of a tragedy or death that occurred during this time of year. This would be an instance in which you could implement psychic protection techniques. If this situation has happened before, it would be a good idea to perform the protection exercises prior to attending any party or gathering. There are quite a few simple solutions and ones that work rather quickly.
The following steps should be taken in order to keep you protected from invasion. Stay physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy. Focus on personal grounding. When you are weak in any of these areas you are more susceptible to illness and depression. Many meditations focus on grounding, particularly those that incorporate the chakras. Balanced and aligned chakras are a main factor in keeping your auras healthy and protected. A heightened sense of awareness and good feeling will be realized.
Also, you can visualize that your body is being showered with an imaginary bubble of white light. This white light is your protection. It emotionally guards you from the negative energies and feelings that are projected on you from others. Continue by imagining your auras glowing in a bright, blue light. This visualization amplifies your positive emotions of morality, good and love. There is no room for any opposing energies.
Finally, call upon your angels, spirit guides and God for protection. With their assistance, you will further empower yourself and be shielded from any psychic attacks or negative attachments.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM PSYCHIC LIBRARY!
