Tarot Arcanum 9: The Hermit
The Ninth Arcanum is the prudent and wise Hermit. It is solitude. There is great pain. In the Ninth Sphere is supreme pain, as Dante states in The Divine Comedy. We have to learn how to understand, we have to learn how to suffer, how to be resigned. Those who are not, fail.

Hebrew Letter: Teth ט
Transcendental Axiom: “Rise unto the mount and contemplate the Promised Land. But, thou shalt not go over thither.”
Forecasting Element: It guarantees science in order for the making of discoveries; a method for when making them; caution when being served by them; advantageous associations and conceited associations; friends who help and who obstruct; light of reason and light of intuition, the first light for the immediate and the second light for that which will be.
Samael Aun Weor
His name is Hebrew סמאל און ואור, and is pronounced “sam-ayel on vay-or.” You may not have heard of him, but Samael Aun Weor changed the world. In 1950, in his first two books, he was the first person to reveal the esoteric secret about sex that was hidden in all the world’s great religions, and for that, accused of “healing the ill,” he was put in prison. Nevertheless, he did not stop. Between 1950 and 1977 he wrote sixty books, and inspired millions of people across the entire span of Latin America. A true example of compassion and selflessness, he dedicated his life to helping others.
