Hi… Jordan Hoggard, author of Tarot in the Land of Mystereum, here to explore potential with the family of the Aces . . .
… Numerically the Aces correspond with the Sun…the Wheel…and the Magician of the Major Arcana. You can explore the relationships of these cards further in my Birth Card blogs . . .
So, let’s explore potential with the Family of the Aces.
Visualize the Fool’s first step as an Ace. Which one comes to mind when you think of the Fool? Play with that AS a two-card reading: Card One ~ The Fool; Card Two ~ the Ace that came to mind for you. It’s called a Came to Mind Reading. I’ll cover that in another blog, though it is as simple as it sounds. Ask your question and quickly write down the cards that come to mind. Then, do your reading from those cards.
Visualize the first step after X The Wheel as a 2-step Ace.
Visualize the first step after XXI The World as a single quaternity of Aces in a step.
With the Ace of Pentacles ~ Sense your Solid Inner Inheritances, the assets and seeds you were born with.
With the Ace of Cups ~ trust your heart, and with bright eyes your ideas may begin to pulse with life.
With the Ace of Wands ~ Direct your energies. Place them where you feel best. As you do, feel the magnetism of things that are wonderfully located. Use your energies to magnetize yourself and inspire the energies around you.
With the Ace of Swords ~ Gift yourself the ability to cut to the chase. listen to its vital lesson. . .listening, Mind that you stick to the point.
A Vital Lesson from the Aces and a Reading Technique
So, a vital lesson from the Aces is about letting the whole family of Aces inform the others when they come up individually. For example, when the Ace of Wands comes up and you need clarification, rather than pulling another card or cards right off the bat… visualize the other Aces. Lay them out in the order they came to mind and ask each Ace, “What Wise Counsel do you have to express to the Ace of Wands?” Do that for each card, and then go back to your Ace of Wands. See if the Ace of Wands stands up strong for you with a clearer voice. You can really do this for any of the cards. For Minors, visualize the other suits of the same number. For Majors visualize the corresponding Birth Cards that go with the Major you have selected. Call it the Collective Consciousness present within families of cards and all the cards in The Fool… that can be a fun concept to explore on your own.
Thanks for stopping by.
I look forward to further touring you through the families living in the Land of Mystereum.
Should the Inner State Highways show come back?
