Mystereum Tarot Moment With The Family of the Twos
Hi… Jordan Hoggard, author of Tarot in the Land of Mystereum , here to explore pairings and contrasts with the family of the Twos.
Numerically, the Twos correspond with Judgment ~ Strength (or Justice if you run it as eleven in your Tarot card sequencing) ~ and The High Priestess of the Major Arcana. You can explore the relationships of these numbers further in my blog. So, let’s explore Tarot pairings and contrasts with the Twos. [[INSERT CARD IMAGES]]
With the 2 of Pentacles strive for equality, equanimity. Feel a direct line from your feet to your imagination with your feet as ground-grabbers. Spread your toes as fingers. Imagine things as soon as they touch your feet with the dexterity of delicate finger-strokes in an epic spiral of giving and receiving.
With the 2 of Cups feel another persons’s big, bright-eyed smile when you think of your identity. Love yourself. Love your imagination. Love who you are. Relish in the wonderful gift of two people or ideas participating together.
With the 2 of Wands shift your focus and redirect your scale on the fly if you feel perplexed. Literally, adjust the energy of your gaze, and do not let many little things be confused as one, big thing.
The 2 of Swords focus for better communication. Study things. Strongly see and discover the way you were naturally born to see. Express it. See and think about familiar surroundings differently.
Pairing and contrasting the whole family of Twos in your own way can provide a vital Tarot lesson. Allow them to inform one another as they come up in a Tarot reading. 1 present, 3 as Silent Counsel. An example? The 2 of Swords can serve to better discern familiar perspectives differently. See and think about things in a different light on the foundation of the 3 Silent Counsel. Refresh your perspective, and more specifically direct the 2 of Swords.
And, to address emotions and receiving in relationships with the 2’s with another example? Visualize how male and female qualities relate. Men may be from Mars, and women from Venus, yet I don’t think so. That seems to be a trickster. See children, say 6 years old. A little boy will play. Another boy comes up, and they play. A 3rd comes up, and they play and play catch-as-catch-can until they are hyper-tired balls of emotion, and they all cry and cry and cry. Then, see a little girl. Another girl comes up. They begin a tea party. A 3rd comes up. And, once whichever is alpha begins to get overloaded, she sends one away with something like, “YOU need to go think about what YOU have done!” And, the girl, tail tucked between her legs, skulks away. Notice that there was no content in the dismissal.
What does this indicate? I would say that at core it indicates that males are naturally emotional, and females are natural strategists. Scroll this forward to now, and apply this to your feelingsense in relationships — male and female (anima) qualities in a male as emotional, and the female and male (animus) qualities in a female as a strategist. We all generally utilize some of both. Does this example provide any flipped, societal clarity in regards to addressing emotions and receiving in relationships? Does this provide a simple and example that is applicable?
Here are two food-for-thought questions to play with:
~ for your male aspects: What are you really feeling? Ask. Couple with the other’s perspective.
~ for your female aspects: What are you really working to orchestrate? Ask. Couple with the other’s perspective.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I look forward to further touring you through the families living in the Land of Mystereum.
