The HM could certainly be seen as being relevant to Steps 1 through 8. However, I don't see him in any of the action Steps. The HM exemplifies physical constraint and lack of physical action. That's why I find Anon's words, " (he) ... can only be moved from above." so insightful.

My interest in Tarot definitely falls into the "intellectual pursuit" category, overlapping just slightly into serious divination.
