Tarot Spaces Between Your Notes. Notes As Your Cards
There is the 4-charactered voice of the Universe. A U M, and then the Silence between them and all around and within them. You will also see this as a whole world of an one identity of the All as OM.
There is also what I find to be a 4-charactered voice of Imagination. Idea Creativity Intuition, and then the bridges of Psychic Synapse spaces between them that bring them into relationship with one another, and as well serve to emphasize each of their identities. To enhance, to reinforce, to strengthen these identities, let’s look at the spaces between them.
Psychic Synapses Between Your Cards
Let’s pull 3 cards and look at the spaces between them. This may enhance the way you merge cards together into the creative traffic in your Idea Solar System? Wait! What’s an Idea Solar System? It is a concept in the Land of Mystereum dealing with the natural orbits of your ideas, how they weightlessly move in mind and into and as your work. Look at each card as a snapshot of a whole world in motion. Simply, look at each card as a verb and itself a whole place of creation, a sanctuary of Inner State Highways speaking from the relationships born of the spaces between the cards.
What do you discover to enhance your Tarot reading style with the spaces between the cards? How does this enhance and reinforce and strengthen your Idea Solar System?
I have been doing what I call Turbo Readings for some time now. It’s a great way to get a landscape level overview of your reading, and it is great to see others coming up with and playing with it on their own in Make A Sentence From The Cards exercises abounding recently. I came up with the idea on my own, as I gather many others have as well when they begin to see the cards more immediately. Be mindful of deceptive simplicity. Simply because a reading is quick does not mean it does not have depth. Some of the best readings are as clear as speaking with a friend, and Tarot is certainly a friend of mine.
Turbo Reading The Spaces Between Your Tarot Cards
I drew these 3 cards to step on the gas with this Space Between Exercise: 3 of Swords ~ 5 of Pentacles ~ 6 of Swords
First off, I will Turbo Read the cards themselves, then Turbo Read the spaces between them. Look at the spaces between as bridges, as living and silent connective tissues. The space between can also be a metaphor for your influence and presence going well beyond your spoken words.
Turbo Reading 3 of Swords, 5 of Pentacles, 6 of Swords.
Your emotional refraction/distortion is playing with your brightness that is missed yet in plain sight. You have everything you need. No need to reach for more. Clearly communicate your emotions mindfully TO solidly lord over any trouble TO find the mindfulness present in the tools of your touch. Is there simply something outside of you that you reach for that is really extraneous to what you need to see in your situation?
I will go so far as to put these 3 cards in an alchemical crucible with some rosemary and lavendar. Heating them up together, the card they feel to indicate is a hesitant Devil XV card, an excess in the form of inhibitions. Remember, inhibitions can enslave as easily as excesses. Are inhibitions really an excess themselves, and excess of worry precluding action?
Turbo Reading the living, connective tissues of the spaces between (the cards)
Put a card’s width of space between the cards as you begin this part of the exercise. Literally, make an invisi-card that IS the space between them.
3 of Swords TO 5 of Pentacles: TO, the bridge of the space between may equal, “Focus your thoughts to solidly see through pity or sorrow and see the established inner light of an idea, of yourself, in a situation.”
5 of Pentacles TO 6 of Swords: TO, the bridge of the space between may equal, “See through to the established brightness present to feel the sharp thoughts present in your touch.”
And then round the troops. Marshall your forces with 6 of Swords TO 3 of Swords: TO, the bridge of the space between may equal, “Utilizing the sharp ideas in your grasp do you see where the irritating psychic splinter is to simply pull it out? Pull it out like a bent twig in the water . . . that clears the water and of course is not really bent.”
Don’t text while you Tarot. It’s dangerous. 😉
The Middle of the Inner State Highway Of These Cards Is
the 5 of Pentacles. Enjoy a quick Mystereum Tarot Moment video for this card.
Best to this exercise and video doing a little whizbang windshield cleaning for you to enhance the focus of your view on the Inner State Highway of these cards. What do YOU see and feel between these 3 cards?
And, for a little squirrelyness
The Birth Cards for this 3-card reading might = 3 + 5 + 6 = 14 = Temperance = 14 = 1 + 4 = 5 = Hierophant. So, here’s the Birth Card Blog for your 5’s of 14 and 5, Temperance ~ Hierophant. Yesterday had the video for the Family of the 3’s, so that’s rather tidy. Here’s the 3’s Birth Card Blog, too.
