9. The Hermit
He has a yellow undergarment and a coat which is light blue inside and dark red on the outside.
His beard is unmodel long and white.
In his right hand he holds a lamp. In the left he holds a rod with eight sections, which he presses on the now lightened ground, the Materia Prima.
The small serpent to his right is the awakened kundalini serpent of the muladhara - chakra.
The snake forces of the overlying chakra were already the subject of card 8.
