Promotion ~ Tuesday Shop Update

Promotion ~ Tuesday Shop Update

Tuesday Shop Update

So, it has come to my attention, from me to myself, that I have an important task. What is that task you ask? To promote my work and services I have available more openly. And, that comes with a wonderful caveat: this blog will not turn into some buy me buy me buy me from my products and services, though I need to do more than only promote ImaginAction and the like from my Sponsor footer.

All That Said

All that said, I am simply going to take the concept of a full and fulfilling vessel and dial in Promotions to a single blog post each week on the same day. I’ve chosen Tuesdays. That way, if you’re here for my blogs and to explore community through my Serendipity Itineraries posts on Fridays, you’ll see Promotion ~ Tuesday Shop Update in your email, and you can mark as read and trash the email so it doesn’t become spam. I set once a week as reasonable. From my perspective any more would be a distraction.

So, Maybe You Did or Maybe Didn’t

So, maybe you’ve only used the WordPress Reader. You may or may not even know I have a Shop on my website with:*

* I have to manually approve the PayPal order transactions, and I check periodically during the day between sessions and events. It will not be more than 3 to 6 hours from The time of your purchase to when you receive the email with the download link(s) for PDF eBooks. Note that Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck + 192-page companion book boxed set published by Schiffer Publications and Taschen Book’s Library of Esoterica by Jessica Hundley are hardcopy and links here are to the Amazon and Taschen websites respectively for purchase on those sites.

There Are Also

There are also my eBooks below available to purchase and download in easy to use pdf download format. You get to download 3 copies of each item you purchase. One copy for yourself, and two to give as gifts for special times or simply when the serendipity of an encounter moves you? That felt more fun. It also sets up the potential for friends to work with and play with them together on Zoom and Teams and the like. All prices in USD. Click the direct links to the shop to check them out. Which ones resonate with you?

Also, I’m Pleased to Announce 2 New Offerings

New 4-Week Mini-Course Offering

Last But Not Least

Last but not least, there’s the old standby of Tips and Donations, though this switches that up in a fun way. How’s that? With COFFEE. Please accept my thanks in advance when you tip your server and buy me a coffee. Thank you!

I love coffee, so rather than a Tip Jar or Donation Button, I went with BuyMeACoffee. It’s fun, and I love coffee. If I can’t see light through it, that’s a really good start.

They make it simple. Click, set the number of coffees you want to send, and pay by PayPal or credit card. Done. I set mine at $3 per coffee to align with the 24oz size at the neighborhood Mom-n-Pop grocer.

FYI: I tested this before I put it in play. Bought myself a coffee by PayPal. $3 bucks. $3 was $3. Ok, cool. Bought myself a coffee by credit card. $3. Doh. $3.61 appeared on my statement. OHHH, we can NOT have that BS. Hidden fees feel sneaky to me, and not in a cool Loki or ninja or hide-n-seek way. Just tell me how much, please. Thank you. To me, value is clear then. It is what it is. If you get charged more than you set up, even a small amount, please let me know.

So, I set it up The BuyMeACoffee link to absorb any credit card fees and/or taxes. So, when you set up the number of $3 coffees that feels right, the waiter/waitress isn’t going to chase you down on the sidewalk so to speak for the extra 61 cents or what-not Surprise fees. You’ll pay what you expect to pay in $3 increments, whatever amount you decide.

I appreciate your support. Will you send me some coffee?

Thanks for being here, and please visit my Shop.

The Parts Sandbox: The Golden Yod & Tarot Majors Individuation Engagement Prompters

The Parts Sandbox: The Golden Yod & Tarot Majors Individuation Engagement Prompters

To Engage Strength and Clarity With Your Natural Inner Animal Voice

To engage natural voice and open up a dialogue with your unconscious — which is very alive. We do need a new word for that. Some in the Professional Psychology community are on the hunt for one — Experience Dr. Becca Tarnas’ Participatory Imagination.

Today, or whenever you are visiting this, please bring your own imaginal yellow bucket and blue shovel to the liminal horizon sandbox, or your color choice, and/or Both-And the tools of your choice. Or, just yourself. That is often plenty. Oh, kick in a sense of adventure, too, as I like to hydrate these sessions rather than intellectually dry them out. No reason for Imagination Beef Jerky. Anyone have a Radio Flyer 90? If so, please bring it or them along, too. We might have some demolished materials to haul off to work clean without interference patterns in the sandbox playground of the psyche. I suggest to take several deep breaths, and as you move through this, please be conscious not to hold your breath. Keep yourself aspirated and hydrated.

The Land of Mystereum Majors Chorus OM-Hums Their Resonance To & For You

We are not You. You are not Us. Though, we are not separate.
We are connected and live in every synapse and interstice and space between so Psychic Synapses can bring things to bring beauty into relationship with beauty.
We live as Archetypes throughout the Universe, 
and within and through and through throughout You. 
You are only as comfortable with Us as you are balanced.
Engage Us like Parts in Brainspotting.
Where and how you look affects how you feel.
Engage Us. 
In Empathic Silence listen to whole-Self Be with Us.
We are your allies when you are your own,
when you own, honestly own You.
You live what you leave out.
What more of your Michelangelo’s marble
can you chip away and make leave
to make more of you seen,
not left out?
Light Ablution Pool Space at The Temple of Luxor at Karnak. Well, that’s what I’ve always called it. Photography credit goes to Photographer, is not one of mine.

O The Fool…

I am The Fool,
though there is no I Am or me in here.
I am not all the cards. They are each themself.
I simply individuate with The All and the small 
to become each card as they gestate and are reborn in each reading. 
Then, they shed me like
The snake its skin shedded, the snake its skin not missed.
A Part of the Divine All of Me remains,
from the original piece of The Divine that broke off in the Creation.
I remain For you as the Creative Principle. I am the liquid dark depths of air you breathe inside your Place of Creation.
There, I am no longer nameless. I am the fire and water 
of Sophia and Lilith to empower You to own and be responsible
for your power. 
Use the space between, that empty, though empathic Silence between things to amplify or simply respectfully observe with reverence how the space between brings them into relationship. In relationship with your surroundings, heighten your curiosity, deepen your wonderment.

My agency is not on a journey or the journey itself. My agency is not the number 0 (zero). 
It is the untouched O (circle) unsquared by influence or expectation, there as fuel for your expeditions. There simply to provide fresh perspective and quality to your continual becomings, your gestures of iterations, your fertile forays in continuous transformation and evolution. 
Yes, I am the vessel, container and contained at the same time. 
I am the unhatched eggshell and that life that burgeons within. 
I am cracked from within as the new life stops breathing water and turns to air, the unborn soul awakening once again.
Do I individuate to become each card along the way 
until we play with a full deck? In the no-knowing forgetting is for getting way, certainly!
Then, the fun begins.
The path to wholeness is lifelong. 

Is the the Fool is the unsquared circle card O to you? The zero card 0 To you? And Osho Zen emptiness and simply the Psychic Synapse of the space between? 
Personlly, I do not feel The Fool to be zero 0. It is O, the unsquared circle of the Alchemist full of infinite potential each time you strike a mark across to square it into a chord or dischord to resonate.
Is The Fool also The Other Card Back, sloughed and forming, sloughed and forming?
What’s your take on The Fool?

Opposites attract? Ahhhhh the song of the truly desperate.

~ John Cleese on Cheers way back when

What’s that do for syzygy? Hmmmmm… I gather syzygy doesn’t need much help to do its magnetically gravitational thing. Apogee Perigee Within and About… the EverReady Bunny of the Psyche?

I The Magician.
I inceive. 
Yes, now that is now a word as I brought it into being.
Formless, I 1st-spark the idea. 
I Am the Arche of Architecture.
I Am the inspiration or impetus. 
What do you inceive or incept today?
II The High Priestess. 
I conceive. 
I give form the the formless with that 1st spark. 
I Am the Techne of Architecture, the making, the putting together.
I Am that agency which gives form to the formless. 
What do you conceive today?
III The Empress. 
I carry conception to full term. 
I am the Yoniverse, that from which all emanates. 
Hey men, you, too! Get your Man-Womb on in your Place of Creation. Sophia Justice-balances the sacred place of the birth, my 4 supporting Queens and the Both~And in all of us stakes the 4 corners. 
What sacred space in place will you corner to establish to pour in... What conception do you carry to full term today?
IV The Emperor. 
I sit, 
powerful, 
comfortable. 
Silent, and without a word, I observe.
I oversee.
I trace the invisible property lines with my eyes,
the magical metes and bounds of identity 
in the realm of you 
that just emanated 
from the Yoniverse. 
My eyes are only moved by my heart. 
What do you In your power silently observe with established love today?

I heard. I sat unseated from my Silence. I experienced. I was better for my Silence.

~ The Emperor once The Land of Mystereum dandelioned into the world
V The Hierophant. 
I marry the spirit with the earth 
so the Archetypes’ out-of-wedlock Mag-HP~Empress~Emperor 
Place of Creation Man-Womb and Woman-Womb 
can continue to enjoy their sin, 
excuse me, creative life, to the fullest. 
I am the Heartfelt Silverback Gorilla Hierophant. 
No stubborn, unbending Traditionalists need apply. 
What magical energies will you marry into life
from your down-to-earth-Spirit Man-Womb/Woman-Womb
Place of Creation 
so they become real out here today 
for your and the world as a human community’s benefit? 
I am not indoctrinated anymore. 
I arrived before indoctrination was a glint in my Dad’s Eye.
Am I the Mote in God’s Eye? Yes. No. Both-And.
I was born in the future from the Soul Gardener 
where Death came as the Mother of Memory. 
My conception brings forth the conscious and fluid fluency confluence 
of the Infinite Arroyos 
of the past
and the future
to birth the perpetual present. 
Please live here. I do.
I have priorities and principles of chief value 
born of the wisdom of my experiences. 
What are your priorities and principles of chief value
that you bring or can begin to bring 
to actively and actionably live in your life today?
What are you doing with all this future
of your prescient remembrance in front of you,
Now?

VI The Lovers.

We paid for a larger font today as we are proud of each other. 
We love what we love. We indomitably love what we love.
We needn’t defend it. It is ours an none others’. We decide.
We make our own rules according to the dance of self with Self.
What way do you love that’s all yours 
that you own 
and take responsibility for 
and love today? 
(Odds are this is all yours and is a personal prompter for your consumption only to keep to yourself. Then again, you make the rules. 
Make time to forget form and action and results, 
like Nature did on this beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. 
Make time to forget form and action and results 
to create a vessel of place filled with sacred space 
to recover just being in the world.
to Your Life, Your Way.
We suggest to not be all happy dappy all positive.
Heck, focus your Being on the negative, 
the angry, the hurt, the cracked, the broken Parts inside you... 
as when you turn to face them and engage In Silence
and only Empathically Listen to their rantras and ravings... 
you may find that they are the ones that need it the most.
As well, can you be a tree with strong roots that laughs at storms?
Do not laugh at their storm as a shaming behavior,
but with that inner laughter that is a closed mouth, temple-flexing, eye brightening inner smile as they go on and on. 
Make sure to toss the ad nauseum out of their ad infinitum.
With your patience not as waiting, 
but as the focused power of a glass top lake
with all the rambunctious life teeming below...
with that, engage. Reverently listen.
What happens when you do?
We did that this morning,
so we’re going to go have some more sex and then enjoy the sunny afternoon together and apart.
We tend to become besties with our beasties.
It often takes much time, 
and that is a currency we are glad to invest in each other
together.
What happens when you engage your beasties? Take care to allow no harm to be done to you. Heck, sometimes nothing great actually begins without a little controversy... to shake the tree and get the lead out and expose Your Inner Gold to heal stronger each day.

When you focus on the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you make an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you.

Crystal clear, sharp and bright, the sacred sword allows no opening for evil to roost.

~ Morihei Ueshiba

And, by engaging your beasties, they can show you the door… to transform them into your allies once they bleed off the negs. Remember Pandora’s story, and her box. A better translation of the box is vessel. In the story of Pandora’s Box she opens the vessel and all the ills of the world fly out and escape. It goes on an on, a lifetime of on and Aion on. And, the story stops there, right? Nope, it doesn’t. And, consequently, like Lilith, Pandora gets a bad wrap. You see Lilith was the 1st to utter the ineffable name. In that action, by her choice, Lilith, made from the same mud as Adam, birthed consciousness. She was demonized as if in some bogus Biblical Tabloid entry.

Eve, not made from the same mud as Adam, was given form from one of Adam’s ribs. Was Eve more aligned or more complicit? I’ll leave that question out there.

Lilith transforms into a serpent, slither-sneaks back into Eden, and seduces Eve to make a choice as well… to bite the apple. POOF, history records the 2nd birth of consciousness as the 1st, and THANK GAWD, and perfection in matter and body goes away. Perfection is boring, and I am allergic to boredom.

So, now that I’ve given proper reverence to Lilith and a respectful bow and nod to her, and of course Sophia, I’ll circle back around to Pandora and her open vessel.

There comes a long pause after the flood of blackness leaves the vessel from the depths. It is quiet, almost silent but not. She is ducked down in front of the vessel on the floor as she allows her vessel itself to shield herself. She hears the faintest thoomp-thoomp. She puts her ear to the vessel. She cocks her head. thoomp-thoomp again. Her ear on the vessel wall. It feels rhythmic. She’s curious. She wonders, Dare I look? The black cat in her can’t resist.

She braces herself. She engaged her vessel which opened her vessel. She endured the Rantra stampede of flight in The Leaving, the liberation. Now, for the moment there is a peaceful calm… and the thoomp-thoomp. She feels the strong and gentle silence confide within confidence, no pushy and arrogant and hubris-poisoned assertion. Her curiosity and imagination are filled with wonderment. It’s so quiet, almost Silent. She

She embraces the lip of the vessel with her hands as a cornerstone. Wraps them strong, though not possession-tight. She begins to pull herself back up with her firm embrace. She slowly pulls herself up and over to peer into the vessel. What does she see? All the ills and negs and beasties are gone, for the moment at least as that/our vessel is infinite as the Universe is inside us. More are sure to come. What does she see?

A tiny, golden, fledgling, Yod-shaped feeling of hope.

Pandora’s Golden Yod (c) 2020 Jordan Hoggard

She brings it to her heart. Individuation is engaged, The Chymical Wedding just began to occur in its lifelong marriage.

A(wo)men

~~~~ O ~~~~

Can you live 
at the confluence 
of the past and prescient remembrance future 
in the experience of the perpetual present.... 
Now? 

Can you own and take responsibility where shame is not even a word in your vocabulary? … much like the word guilt doesn’t exist in the Tibetan language. They have shame and remorse and resentment and regret… though, guilt, does not exist there. Whyever would one want to ingest and digest shame such that it becomes an internal Negative Rock of Gibraltar to bully us from the inside? Personally, I feel shame is a dumb thing to do. Are you a criminal? If so, turn yourself in. If not? Dispense with guilt, flip the turtle of shame on its back. Own your stuff, and there you go. There you go where you can inspire yourself like Pandora with the Parts of your story no one except yourself can tell you about. Know Thyself. 2 powerful words. If I could only take 2 words with me to a deserted island. Know Thyself. would be the two. Plus, I snUck in a single period there. Hope customs doesn’t relieve me of it, as then I’ll have a period toy to move around and 11 letters Trojan Horsed into the 2 words. Bet the airline will let me go carry-on. Hope I don’t lose them in the airport x-ray vessel.

Can You Rise

Can you rise above yourself and pluck that weed out like the Soul Gardener you are. Your naturalized perennials just might thank you for the added breathing room for their roots.

OOOO~OOOO

One’s roots much touch Hell for one to reach to Heaven.

C.G. Jung

OOOO~OOOO

Heaven and Religion are for people who do not want to go to Hell. Spirituality is for those of us who have already been there.

~ David Bowie

VII The Chariot.

I sidle up and sync from the side. 
What internal rhythms 
do you sidle up 
and sync your resonance with today? 
Can You ask Moira, 
the Astro Asteroid Goddess 
of internal time
help you?

VIII Justice.

It is. Your heart is. Your actions are. 
What activity and exercise 
will lighten your heart 
to tare your scale 
and balance you 
out today? 
You know, 
like RBG. 

I bet Maat 
had to get 
a new scale for 
RBG whose heart could fly.
No Maat judgment Mano y mano.
Feather 
partners 
feather.
RBG 
was 
the 
scale 
of 
Justice 
herself.
Maybe Maat actually just smiled, said, Thank You, Ruth,
and just waved her on in. You’re welcome, Maat heard in that moment. Both worlds are better places for RBG’s presence.

IX The Hermit.

I have hypervision. 
My inner light warms the places that are deep in darkness. 
Am I the white spot in the Yin-Yang? 
What will you do to illuminate dark depths 
to mine the splendor of your Inner Inheritances, 
to use your natural, emotional wisdom, 
and discover and integrate Inner Gold today?

X The Wheel.

1 word       I’m 
2 words.    going cycling 
3 words.    today always. Are 
4 words.    you going cycling today? 
5 words.    On a lark, in a 
6 words.    park, on a whim, or deep 
7 words.    within? How do you engage cycle today?
8 words     (Insert your words)
9 words     (Insert your words)
10 words.  (Insert your words)

XI Strength.

I have marshaled the forces of my natural, inner animal voice 
And married it with the clarity of refinement. 

The goal of words are to be like pouring clear water in a stream from a dear, recent email (sentence by Enrique Eniquez). 

That also Is like the gurgling water over rocks sound you hear when you play a tuned Steinway piano. Bliss of resonant vibrations on both.
What do you say today that is as clear as pouring clear water in a stream?

XII The Hanged Man.

 I am The Empress’ son, and together we are Tarot Birth Cards. 
You see, I continually am and continue to become enlightened 
as I am connected with my Place of Creation. 
Sometimes, full-on and total. 
Sometimes, just brilliant and welcome sunbeams 
that gleam to me through the leaves of my Tree. 
What lights you up today?

XIII Death.

I am the Mother of Memory and Nourisher of Dreams, 
and I reside in the past-future confluence 
that is the Birth-And-Death 
MindHeartBodyBeautiful of the perpetual present 
with a foot 
on both sides. 

I am the snake its skin shedded, 
the snake its skin not missed. 
For, look at the refreshed and vibrant new colors. 
I am the chaff blown off the wheat 
in the wind 
for you to nourish the life ingrained in you. 
What do you feel like today once you are free of something that’s run its course?

Death as the Both~And Mother of Memory and Nourisher of Dreams that confluence in the perpetual present.

What will we do with all this future have… Now?

XIV Temperance.

We are the magical mixing. Some call us the Mysterium Coniunctionus Because we, in our Latin way, hadn’t yet discovered “ j.” Some call us the Systema Monditotius. Some call us evolved Lovers of Self Knowing Thyself/Ourselves in reciprocal Justice. We powerfully listened when we approached the Oracle and internally experienced the words, Know Thyself. That struck chords to resonate in our heart, and we had a Chymical Wedding within each of us before we came together, with William Blake’s etching acid corrosive as our wedding planner helped us balance the Ph of our relationship to dial out the acidic and keep the corrosive as our corrective. Sarcasm anyone? Hmmm. Lotta words for the wise and time calm confidence of our Temperance. 
How is your balance magically mixed?

The snake’s skin shedded, the snake its skin not missed. Chaff blown from wheat in the wind. Our forgetting is for getting. It makes more breathing room for the good stuff. Can that be magnetic for you to pull in more good stuff?

~ Jordan Hoggard. Who’s that HierDood?

XV The Devil.

What are the power of your expectations in your focus rather than with blind spots? What innate intensities do you embrace? Are you aligned with your earthly desires, or do they take you into a state of imbalance where your strategies innately keep you there? I don’t ask you a question. Instead, I gift you the tool of freedom to feel your desires clearly. I suggest to explore them and strike your own balances as you do no harm.

XVI The Tower.

I am the Shaker-Upper. Uranus And Pluto are my Besties. And, with the Tower, we all go Rx (Retrograde) on you. We station. We plant. We emanate with all our power. Do you experience World-Altering experiences from the upsets we create? Do things fall through in ways to cascade what you‘ve built into oblivion? If so, when the marsh gasses of the pound turn over clear, do you feel relief, a Tabula Rasa of a restart? Or, when we do this, do you downshift to plant right along with us? Do you then instead feel a World-ALTARing experience? Have things then not fallen apart, though have fallen together for the first time in a way you are simply not familiar with? Do you feel grief or relief and/or both? Do YOU settle the dust in the focused power of patience by not stirring your pot and allowing it to settle where you Ghandi it out and wait for the dust to settle? How does your Tower work this time? How does your Tower work each time?

We each grieve differently, and we each grieve differently each time.

~ Jordan Hoggard

Trees with strong roots laugh at storms.

~ Malay Proverb

When the water is cloudy, will you stop stirring and powerfully listen? The wait for clarity can be an internal, Moira rhythm that is yours only. Know thyself, and it often relates to the All that is good for everyone. Taking care of You takes care of The All..

~ Me

XVII The Star.

I am your celestial groove. 
What is your celestial groove? 
What is your celestial groovy? 
Are you surfing yours with the clarity of your Inner Animal voice where proper Silences highlight and provide reverence 
to enhance your voice notes and the Golden Yods in between?

XVIII The Moon.

I am your Inner LUNAtic. Are you driving yourself crazy with anxiety, or do you outlaw anxiety from hijacking your fear from turning your fear, which is simply awareness, into being afraid? Isn’t your fear simply both primal and evolved awareness? 
Does your fear connect to your Inner Radar to blip and say DUCK and/or SWERVE and/or ENGAGE?

XIX The Sun.

I 
am who you were 
when you born, 
and maybe forgot? 
How can you be You, as only You can be?

XX Judgment.

Resurrection anyone? 
How do you move differently 
when your Inner Perennial Parts 
wake up and stretch after a long sleep?

XXI The World.

Isn’t the 9 of Pentacles 
the teeny Gaia card after the 7?

The 7 of Pents is what I call the Soul Gardener card.
Back to the dynamic verge point towards the 10 in the 9.
Though, the 10 would be the future to the 9,
so let’s dial back in to the present with 
The World and the 9 of Pentacles,
and put a couple of drops of your Golden Yod into them.
Roll it around to do a subtle flow mix,
maybe with as much focused balance as handling nitroglycerin in the movies.

With that in mind
Look into the Inner Obelisk Wormhole with a Golden Yod Heart
in the Land of Mystereum 9 of Pentacles
What more can you learn about about yourself from The World as you look up from inside the obelisk through the Cloister of Eternity. Are these the 2 Yin-Yang dots?
What message(s) do you get?

Thanks for the Sandbox Play Today!

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Oct 16th, 2020

Hanged Man ~ Empress

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace transformation in a very matter of fact manner. A crucial component of their reality is that they engage with inner contents and the unconscious in factual ways as easily as they interact with people at a get-together. Psychic and unconscious contents are simply more facts to go with what is out here. Even if these are not your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were. See what new perspectives you can discover.

With The Hanged Man ~ Empress, Chariot style, what intensely natural, internal, transformative energies that oppose one another In their alchemy will you harmonize to harness for your Higher Good today and this weekend?

There is nothing in the caterpillar that tells you it‘s going to be a butterfly.

This Week

It’s a #3 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 3 of Pentacles

0 min 59 sec

and

2 min 17 sec

I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times, how do you establish and/or embrace your established inner light to enhance and align with and in your natural transformation(s)? Is transformation one of the heartbeats of beauty?

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

My Friend Fred

I say Fred’s chaos = Nature itself, and one’s natural and immutable Nature of Self.

What messages do The Hanged Man ~ Empress gift you?

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do you express a fluid fluency with transformational energies in real time on the fly? Record yourself speaking about The Hanged Man ~ Empress. Close your eyes and play yourself back Afterwards. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear even more than what you said. What do you hear. How do you feel to yourself? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you? What about the flow? Dance like you’re birthing a star, click record, and speak fluently like no one’s listening. Share what happens if you like. If you’re more visual, doodle like no one is watching.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Outside and look in the window… look into the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 0min 59’sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What transformations do I craft from the intense pressures in my life? How do you allow this inform your perspective? What will you do about it? Cogs are not less than. A cog functions under intense temperatures and pressures all the while engaging to gear in without slip. And, if it slips, it can often be re-tooled to be put back in place.

Recently

I’m full-on pleased that my article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine Equinox Issue. I’m stoked with the honor and the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin Charlotte and the Tarosophy Team! Note that the Tarosophist International Magazine is a members-only magazine with public print to resume soon.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

SVRCINA ~ Battlefield

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 16th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own. All similar, each unique. My image is splashing in the water. Just splash and splash and let the splash be… unless you’re in Oz or South Africa. Then, do that in a pool. I wouldn’t want you to hear dangerous cello music in the ocean. Du Nuh…

I suggest take 2 sites you are familiar with and revisit their current post(s). Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble Diamonds take some time it seems. The stars and planets are menacing only if you let them be. They are magical allies if you OWN them, especially when they are intense. How can you partner with your intensity to surf your own celestial grooves of transformation this week?. I suggest to not take shit from the stars this week. It’s YOUR world. Turn around and see where they are coming from. Your perspective might shift to your benefit as they partner with you, even if at odds. There’s still a relationship in that scenario as well. Breathe out and take out your broom to clean sweep anxiety out! Fear is like Inner Iolite, the Nordic Compass. Use it as awareness as your adaptability drives transformation. And, please do take care not to let anxiety hijack your Fear Awareness Radar Tool from you and jack it into being afraid. SHIELDS UP for the rest of the month! October 2020 Astro is quite a ride. Make it so! And, here’s a 3rd Astro link I value. Susan Miller, Rob Brezsny, and Verdarluz are three Astro voices I work with to complement mine as I Chart course.

About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley.

I respect when people swim in their own crucible to discern and come to a more resonant relationship with themselves.

Scott Spillman ~ The Point Magazine. New article, Charismatic Models.(My words follow, these are not Scott’s or the Magazine’s) I loathe politics as the great irony of our time, maybe any time when people who are not personally sovereign can be ruled simply by the sniff of a suggestion. This, is not that.

Joy Vernon ~ Completely Joyous. Tarot & Reiki. Bookmarked for this week as there’s an ICANN issue pending. I’ve been there. I hate it when that periodic email required to confirm your URL ownership with ICANN for your website gets buried and lost. I’ll most likely have an operable link here next week if not before.

Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

Visceral Path ~ Sacral to Crown Walk Through the Feel of Sacred Architecture

Visceral Path ~ Sacral to Crown Walk Through the Feel of Sacred Architecture

I Walk

I walk the path of knowing 
living in the not-knowing, 
death as the mother of memory,
the nourisher of dreams 
in this confluence of all things 
that is the perpetual present. 

Comfortable with the not-knowing, 
forgetting is for getting. 
It makes more room for the god stuff to breath. 
That often magnetizes 
more good stuff 
for more intense breath,
for more intense forgetting,
for getting
the good.

Is health simply integrated armor?

Are We

Are we all the unmoved mover? 
Do we all move like entering Mont St. Michel? 
The scheduling danger of coming and going. 
Too attached to your plans? 
Cool, I suggest to not attend the visceral, 
experiential feast that is Mont St. Michel then. 
Though, if fluid, 
and not going with the flow,
as only dead fish go with the flow, 
do you tack the sailboat of your life 
with fluid fluency
into the wind? 
Back and forth navigating forward into the intensity,
do you move from depth
to heights
to rise up and open yourself 
like a corporeal cloister?

Once Said

Christian Norbert-Schulz once said:

How does a building stand on the ground?

How does it extend to the sides?

How does it open and close?

How does it reach for and zipper with the sky?

To which I will add,

How does it feel?

What Are the Consequences Of Feeling?

Well, ice crystal recording devices can be a cool gig.

Look What Can Happen

To the top of your car
when you come home 
in butt-ass cold one winter evening
as the sun sets
after a 30-minute drive 
after giving a Tarot reading 
that fills you with, 
This is why I do this,
and discover THIS the next morning.

I Draw, and in So Doing

I draw
And, in so doing
I abduce,
I draw out...

Yesterday evening.
I drew The Emperor,
and said nothing.


That spoke volumes to me, 
That I said nothing. 
Just sat,
feeling Silence.

That spoke volumes to me,
the Architect.
Too attached to form.
Too attached to results.
Too drawn.
Too specified.
Too dimensioned.

Place established,
I now care less about dimensioning beauty.

It’s time to over-listen,
and in whole-body listening,
underspeak,
as I feel into my Silence,
as I listen to others.

I Currently Have 6 Favorite Quotes

I have six favorite quotes in no particular order. 
They all orbit together 
in my Idea Solar System 
as they do at any given time. 

Currently, 
they are all Rx, 
stationed, 
powerful as they sit and emanate.
Retrograde, Rx, is a stationing, 
a sitting planted strongly, 
the intensity
of the focused power
of patience.

Mercury Rx?
Downshift.
Re-sync to the new tach level.
Dial in
to dive in differently.

Mercury Rx in Mars Rx?
We might need a new transmission soon.
Till then,
shift n corner differently as only you can.
Your Life, Your Way.

It’s not no better time than the present.
The present is perpetual.

What am I,
What are You,
going to do with all this future in front of us,
Now?

Death may be the Mother of memory,
and Nourisher of dreams,
though
Now
is always the time.

I chose The Tower.
I drew The Tower.
I had already created and made The Tower.

Though, now?
World-altering?
Nope.
World ALTARing.

Sometimes,
when it appears that everything fell apart,
did everything simply fall in place
for the first time
outside the bounds
of your expectations?

Inspect your expectations.
Has your life simply come together
for the first time
in a way you are full-on unfamiliar with?

It can certainly induce a startle.
Fortunately, I run towards gunfire.
I tack the sailboat into the wind
square my shoulders to face
the time
in the space
of this place
now unconcerned with form and results

with Self. 

Be yourself. I hear everyone else is already taken.

~ Oscar Wilde

I Currently Have

I currently have six favorite quotes:

Symbolic representation and imagistic writing are the pure hieratic forms of esoteric expression. Through symbolism, and through it alone can we read the thought of the Ancients. It is only through the symbolical that we will be able to coordinate the known elements of this great civilization and that the writing may take on its true meaning.   

 ~ R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz — The Temple In Manp. 19

There came a time when the risk of remaining tight in the Bud was more painful than the risk of blossoming.

~ Anais Nin

Trees with strong roots laugh at storms.

~ Malay Proverb

A heart in love with beauty never grows old.

~ Turkish Prverb

Forgetting is for getting. It makes more room for the good stuff to breathe.

~ Jordan Hoggard riffing off of to evolve the Imagination Primer from Tarot in the Land of Mystereum.

If you don’t read the paper each morning, you’re uninformed. If you do, you’re misinformed.

~ Mark Twain

Cloister of Self ~ The Temple In Man

The Temple of Luxor at Karnak

How Do You Listen

When Silence Presents

The Oculus of Itself To Self,

To You?*

* Note: Jung, Nietzsche, and the Wm pair, Blake and James, were napping at the time of this post. Well, that’s what I was told When they could not be reached for comment to provide a quote. I’m pretty sure they played hooky and are hanging out with Julia Morgan and Harriet Tubman and Cleopatra and Sophia. Pallas-Athena and Moira and Astraea will take your cover at the door.

From deep and chthonic Sacral places Kundalini-ing up through numinous Crown

How Do You Listen

When Silence Presents

an Oculus of Connection?*

Tip Your Server? Cool, Buy Me a Coffee. Thanks Much.

* Note: The Portal of the Seamless Segue wormhole in the 9 of Pentacles gifted by The World looking up from within the obelisk.

Mystereum Wands Gallery

Mystereum Wands Gallery

I’ve Posted About

I’ve posted about my Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer, Schiffer Publications 2011, in a lot of ways. I’ve done a Process of Sequencing Individuation Tarot Psychology synopsis with the Majors, and a 9-Part Tarot Birth Card Series. I’ve done a series of the Presence of the (insert Major card) series going through how in the Land of Mystereum each of the Majors visit and cameo in many of the Minors to bring lineage into the power of the Minors, give them higher octaves readily present without playing the implication game with things unseen. There’s been The Soul Seat Heartfelt Silverback Hierophant where instead of the Hierophant on a bad day, the stubborn and unbending traditionalist, the Hierophant is seated AS active wisdom born of life experience. There have been to 10-Part Mystereum Tarot Moments short, around 1 minute or less, videos For the Pentacles to date. About to resume on the other 3 suits… uh hem, 9 years later.

So, Today

Here are the Wands WITHOUT the perspective and bents of me describing them with words so you can dive in and see for yourself what the Land of Mystereum Wands are all about. No tour guide theme. No intent, ahhh especially no intent from when I was creating and making them. They graduated from me. Now, they speak for themselves in the ways they’ve grown to speak to you, your way. If there are caption comments in the images, simply click for a large view. I imagine the caption will scale out of being text graffiti that interferes with the larger image. What do the Mystereum Wands say to you?

Intention is over-rated. It is simply vastly more important the way an idea or intent comes across. Can be the heartbeat pulsing actions to life, though the actions are going to speak louder than the intent words.

Intention is over-rated. It is simply vastly more important the way an idea or intent comes across

~ Jordan Hoggard at a BBQ in 1993, Denver Colorado. Thanks Joe B. for writing the 1st sentence of the 1st part on your white board. Otherwise, this statement would have most likely been lost.

Enjoy the Mystereum Wands with my words shed like chaff from wheat in the wind. All image. All your perspective. Personally, my Minor Arcana order is Pentacles, Wands, Cups, Swords. Mostly, due to it takes all elements to put a sword together from earthly materials, to fire and smelting and melting and forging and and folding and annealing ( or not if pre-mature), to water set up clean for quenching in the quickening douse to temper… to air… to… make a sword. May be limiting. May be expansive. AN order that may be able to be shed like chaff from wheat in the wind. The snake its skin shedded. The snake, its skin not missed.

I Realized I Haven’t Posted Anything Much If At All From the “Prescient Remembrance” Poetry Collection

I Realized I Haven’t Posted Anything Much If At All From the “Prescient Remembrance” Poetry Collection

Well, I’ll remedy that!

1992 Marketing
Prescient Remembrance Cover
Prescient Remembrance Cover

Here’s a Sample From

Prescient Remembrance: Dialogue of a Vampire

Dedication

lying high up in the mountains,
where is brewed the thunder 
and in fair weather 
the dragon sleeps.

Ours is not a lot to be feared. The dragon is a necessary beast
immeasurably deep.

juvenilis puerilis vanitas ostentatio jactatio

Feel Your Prescience

Feel your safety on your holy ground.
Suckle on the myth of your goodness
in those cruciform places you hold sacred,
while I suckle
on the rest of humanity.

We do not follow you to those places
as we cannot
do those things which are conquerable,
and simply cannot bear those places where you sing.

Those places do not protect you.
Enslaved gargoyles,
traitors to us lest their unknowing feet
entrained in those stone shoes that you fashioned,
and an occasional bellringer stroking them
as they drone high above your path,
where the wind is stronger than the scent of your life,
keep us circling above,
intent on your storied portals,
those lists of the best tasting among you.

     Angels.  You misname them.
     They are simply prettier to you
     than their gargoyle siblings
     held down by those enslaving prison-shoes of stone
     that you call cathedrals.

     You should know,

there have been sly ones among you.
Those tricky Nassenes for instance, 
knowing that in our vanity we will not touch our young,
as we, too, find them abominable,
stole away with nine of them,
worshipping them as they grew,
carrot-leading them:

     You are perfect as you are . . .
     Grow strong not beautiful . . .
     Help keep us safe . . .
     Up there you can see eternity.       
     Live up there . . .
     Turn to stone, it is strong . . .

Ignorant of their heritage,
of their eventual grace and stealth and eternity,
they were taught to perceive a strength and power
in your piles of stone conveniently shaped.
    
     Behold Us!
     We are strong and beautiful.
     Can you resist us?
     Gaze into our eyes and see inside your universe.
     Touch our skin of winter,
     and feel the heat of your passion
     pulsing in the silence of our bodies.
     
     Peeking through the wonder piquing,
     can you resist us,
     knowing that all we want
     is simply your entire life for just a moment?

Your silent guardians sometimes stir
inside their stoney sleep
still unborn into a life
where they would eventually die into their own eternity.

They lie dormant far above you,
and nightly we circle.

Nightly the bell-ringer.
Nightly they stir far above you.

It is not fire or lightning
that occasionally rips the towers from your cathedrals.

Keep eating your garlic.
We will help you stop sinning more quickly
if you are spiced up a bit.

Stop

tempus dies aevum saeculum otium hora in praesentia siquando spaientiae nostrum tempestivus

Who 
is to free the prisoners 
when sand sleeps
in the eternity of the tilted hourglass?

Acrolid

futilis frivolus vanus futilitas

Memory
fascinates her clock each night
     with innocence 
     and a stake,

while the potent scent of predatorial bliss
that permeates the air each dusk,
sends this lionesse back over the horizon,
sending her away from this sleeping cobra,
never staking
as we are each others’ claim...

Sends this lionesse back over the horizon to sleep
each night just before I wake.

How many centuries will this go on?

Sunday Services & Promotion Announcement

Sunday Services & Promotion Announcement

Sunday Services

So, it has come to my attention, from me to myself, that I have an important task. What is that task you ask? To promote my work more openly. And, that comes with a wonderful caveat, again self-issued. This blog will no turn into some buy me buy me buy me from my products and services, though I need to do more than only promote ImaginAction and the like my my Self-Sponsor footer.

All That Said

All that said, I am simply going to take the concept of a full and fulfilling vessel and dial in Promotions to a single blog post each week on the same day. That way, if you’re here for my blogs and to explore community through my Serendipity Itineraries posts, you’ll see Promotion or something similar, don’t know the name yet, and you can mark as read and trash the email so it doesn’t become spam. Heck, once a week isn’t a whole lot, may not be enough, though since this is my life’s work, I’m going to start it out that way. Plus, it’ll get me off the hook to have to continually advertise, and on the hook for the continual banner of writing and feeling my way around my work.

So,

So, I simply felt on this Sunday Services post to share so you’re aware. We all have to make a living, and I’m thoroughly grateful for all of you being here as I just fell into the ablution pool of I have 300 subscribers now. Thank you to each of you here. You make it worthwhile, and I appreciate that.

I simply thought you all should know, so it doesn’t feel like a T-Bone of Oh Shit, he went into advertising mode. Simply, once a week, and I may actually simply make it a Page rather than here on my Posts. I don’t know yet, though Promotion moved from low orbit working on it to landing as I bring my Divination Studio towards being full boat all digital.

Call it Covid Blessings. I have been able to connect more deeply with the professional Jungian Depth Psychology community and as well Tarotists and Astrologers and Philosphers and all you coolio people around the world through Zoom through this There will be no new normal time. We adapt, and continually normalize into pace as we naturalize in the garden of our lives.

There Came A Time

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

~ Anais Nin

Now

Now, is that time for me. The High Priestess and Sophia with her Seven Pillars. Two living arm pillars planted in the ground In the High Priestess. The Meridian of Her Self as the visceral 3rd where the marriage in the heart meets. One emanation each from her shoulders, and one each from Her expanding beyond body in her Draw Down The Moon ritual where she becomes one in Conception with the Universe. There might be 8 when the Pillar of the Earth itself is revered. Though, sometimes it’s time to stop counting the steps and just dance like no-one’s watching.

Thanks for being here.

SI: 10/9 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 10/9 Serendipity Itinerary

Your October 9th, 2020 SI, with the Moon Direct in Cancer since 11:45A 10/8. The Moon will continue its travel through Cancer to enter its next Void of Course Astro Sign Lunar Synapse Saturday 10/10 at 12:04p and emerge Direct in Leo at 8:24p 10/10. It will continue Direct through the weekend until diving into its next Void Of Course Psychic Astro Sign Synapse on 10/12 at 10:29a, to emerge Direct again on 10/13 at 12:56a in Virgo. All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the energetic Aries opportunity to engage in things that amplify your energies, things you are passionate about. I would suggest that the meditation is to embrace the heft balance to stay in your lane so to speak so your higher octave Aries energies emanate rather obliterate. Out of your lane might be like bumper cars or Pachinko balls bouncing around all over. In your lane and breathing deeply may stoke your Inner fire with the good stuff of You.

Nevermind mastery. Mastery leads to further discovery, and Aries can sharpen your points through expert skill in play. It’s advised to keep an extra sheath around, though. I suggest to light a candle that you do not blow out in a fire-safe place.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

~ Victor Borge

Serendipity Itineraries

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Oct 9th, 2020

Temperance ~ Hierophant

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace big changes as you engage with your established identity. Even if these are not Your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were and see what new perspectives you discover, and what intense energies that oppose one another you harness for your Higher Good.

How can you World-Altar your life with your down-to-earth spirit that magically mixes with balance? I suggest to not get lost in that. There’s always a way. I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski put it better at a higher octave when his Chariot spoke and said, I made a diamond out of my misfortune. Taken that way, the intense heat and pressures of the world can be World-Altaring instead to…. What diamond do you make with the pressures of your life?

What are Your Tarot Birth Cards?

Click to find your Tarot Birth Cards here at the Tarot School in NYC. Ruth Ann & Wald Amberstone have a great set of offerings and info, in addition to just being rockin’ people who run The Tarot School in NYC!

And, if you want to explore Tarot Birth Cards more, please visit my 9-Part Birth-Placing Identity Series.

This Week

It’s a #5 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 5 of Pentacles.

1 min 06 sec

and

I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times how do you embrace your established inner light to activate effective actions? How can you exhale The Nemesis of Beauty Asphyxiator of anxiety so it doesn’t smoke out your inner fire?

I refer to the 5 of Pentacles as the Inspect Your Expectations card. Rather than pity or shame or guilt or loss, how can you look past that to the higher octave of your warm and established inner light, Your Inner Hearth? How can you look past the blind spots and illusions and mirages of what you expect to see, and see and experience what is really there? Justice and The King of Swords are a great pair of allies to explore that question With the 5 of Pentacles.

What messages do Justice (VIII or XI depending on how you roll) and The King of Swords Gift to you for your 5 of Pentacles?

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do YOU harness intense energies in real time? Record yourself speaking about The Chariot and/or Temperance and/or The Hierophant and/or the 5 of Pentacles. Close your eyes and play yourself back. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear even more than what you said. What do you hear, and how does it come across to you? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you? What about the flow? Dance like no one’s watching, click record, and speak like no one’s listening. Share what happens if you like.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Inside and look out the window… look out the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 1min 06sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What do I craft from the pressures in my life? How do you allow this inform your perspective? What will you do about it?

Carrie Paris is the Video Producer on my Mystereum Tarot Moments series from 2012-2013. Check out her beautiful site!

Recently

This Week intense energies that I harnessed were published yesterday. My article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine.* I’m stoked with the honor, and beyond pleased with the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin and the Tarosophy Team!

* Members only magazine. No tease. Just to let you know. I suggest to check out the Tarosophy Tarot Association.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

A Blast From The Past: 2014

So, here’s what you car might look like the next morning in the winter from your energy after a WONDERFUL marathon 4-hour Reading the day before and a 30-minute drive home. Love the Baby Dragon Wings border and living flows across the Moon Roof.

SVRCINA ~ Battlefield

Nothing Else Matters ~ Metallica Cover

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 9th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own. All similar, each unique. My image is splashing in the water. Just splash and splash and let the splash be… unless you’re in Oz or South Africa. Then, do that in a pool. I wouldn’t;t want you to hear dangerous cello music in the ocean. Du Nuh…

I suggest take 2 you are familiar with and revisit their current posts. Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble. The stars and planets are menacing if you let them be, and magical allies if you OWN them. I suggest to not take shit this week from the stars. Turn around and see where they are coming from. Your perspective might shift to your benefit. Breathe out and take out your broom to clean sweep anxiety out! Fear is like Inner Iolite, the Nordic Compass. Use it as awareness, and please do take care not to let anxiety hijack it from you to jack it into being afraid. SHIELDS UP for the rest of the month! Make it so!

Enjoy Your SI

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog. Please share his recent Black in AI 2020 Call for Papers post to magnetize others who might not have otherwise been aware of the opportunity to advance the AI (Artificial Intelligence) community.

Martha Ann Kennedy’s Blog ~ I’m A Writer, Yes, I Am! Her recent post Through the Looking Glass from The Global Exclaimer is powerful and full-on apt about this racism disease going around more powerfully in this current time where the Civil War is like the EverReady Bunny just going and going and going — like it seethed under the surface for over a century, the internal war that never ended. About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley. All my life, I’ve been a writer. Sometimes, I’m also a painter, but I am always a hiker.

Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work last week. He liked a comment I made on another’s blog, don’t remember which as I clicked right through to his site. Wonderfully powerful, muscular language full of grit and flow and resonance and well-played metaphor that is apt and expressive and clear. Check out Keith’s recent Skyscraper post. It starts with a wicked cool image, and keeps going from there.

Janet Rudolph ~ Feminism and Religion. Thoughtful. Poignant. Meaningful. Janet plays the depths with her tune. Both-And is embraced, and though either/or is not dismissed, it is seemingly most often precluded by her forthright and engaged gesture. Janet posts from a deep well.

House of Ari. Sharing a personal exploration of gender in Sweden. Up front and honest and insightful as the experience and process of this self-induced rite of passage unfolds. I respect when people swim in their own crucible to discern and come to a more resonant relationship with themselves. It can be swimming in magma at times, though isn’t that how crystals and geodes are made? Clarity and creativity and actionable feel often come out of strong Soul Gardening such as Ari’s. I look forward to where this exploration leads.
