In the tarot, the hermit represents the guiding light that is knowledge. The hermit is a student of life, of nature, of anything that interests him. Like the hermit, I am also a seeker of knowledge of all kinds, for knowledge truly is power. My favorite subjects are philosophy, history, and occult topics, among others.
I am spiritual... not religious. I know that sounds cliche but I have difficulty identifying with any established religion. I do, however, believe in a spiritual world. I just don't think any of the mainstream religions (at least those I've come across) have it really right. Theosophy seems to make the most sense to me, but I haven't looked too deeply into it. I probably should.
My best theory about the divine at this moment in time is that all the ancient gods are personifications of natural energies and forces. It was how the ancients explained their surroundings. In modern times, we are own gods. Our very nature implies divinity, for we are like nothing else on this Earth. It is knowledge and our understanding of natural energies and forces that allow us to manipulate these energies (casting magic) and become gods in our own right. We all have the divine spark; it is up to us to foster that spark.

You are The Magician
Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.
Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing, you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.
The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man - either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.
