Tarot. Lammas. Pentacles. A Magnetic Fruit

01 Aug


to this Tarothoppin’ segment from Tarot by Arwen’s blog along your Lammas TarotBlogHop dance of Pentacles: The Fruits of Harvest.

And, thinking about Pentacles and the fruits of harvest . . . a magnetic fruit came to me . . .

A Solid Big Fruit

As I sit here in my desert Oasis in New Mexico, USA thinking about Lammas and harvest, the fruits of harvest, Pentacles, Pentacles: The Fruits of the Harvest, I forget my oasis on my deck above my courtyard where I am shaded under my apple tree. . .
Yes, the tree is heavy with fruit, as is the pear tree near,
yet another idea wants to come through, a different kind of clear idea,
a different Pentacle, a differerent kind of fruits of the harvest . . .
and my mind wanders off into the imagined desert outside the city-oasis, as the apple tree shades me,
and I look up at all the apples.

I imagine

that the desert may be the ultimate reaper, always reaping, though I also imagine a field of harvesters harvesting in the bean fields that used to be right here, and a feast afterwards, and that is when I felt it, a different fruit of the harvest, a magnetic one!
This fruit danced its way into being as the heart of a solid idea, solidly birthing its qualities, and moreso renewing an awareness, a primary awareness of thanks for the harvest . . . and of something larger.

You see,

a whole apple tree of potentiality lives in the apple seed. In a field of barley the ancient Egyptians felt living sustenance, which by the way feeds in to their hieroglyph for “Fabric”.  The “fabric” hieroglyph is 4 pairs of barley stalks, 4 pairs of barley stalks leaning together in pairs all on common ground. . .like the 4-pillared golden symbol below this Knight . . .

(c) 2010 Jordan Hoggard

And, therein is the solidly magnetic idea that renews my awareness, that draws me in another direction of fruit harvested.  The magical twilight of the space between each of us that bring any two or more of us into relationship . . . is MAGNETIZED BY THE HARVEST to bring together and enhance and strengthen the magnetic and solid fruits of the harvest that are us in . . . COMMUNITY!!!


is solidly magnetized by the harvest to be present and visible, resonating fully during the harvest.  Like the visual story of meaning living in any hieroglyph like the whole apple tree present in the inner infinity of potentiality of the seed . . . Like the visual story of meaning living in the hieroglyph for “fabric” is magnetized by the harvest to gather together community . . . Communities are Pentacles-level solid fruits magnetized together by the harvest.
A community and the harvest inner-outer mirror one another.  Inner-outer mirroring?  Inner-outer mirroring and the always ripe number 9, and 9 of Pentacles come to mind for a coming harvest feast’s sweet dessert.
So, as you hop through fruits of the harvest with Pentacles in mind, enjoy this video about literal inner-outer mirroring with the 9 of Pentacles.
Enjoy the solid magnet-mirror living within the 9 of Pentacles.  Best to it folding over into the solid fruits of your harvest in your community of self, with others, with Nature!

      You’re welcome, Arwen. I enjoy the choice of the word “pull”, like natural orbits. Thanks for the nod. 😀

    Excellent post and video! I didn’t know that about the multiplication tables! Thanks for sharing!

    I love how many of us came to community in our pentacles explorations. Not surprising, I guess, but still pleasing. Another thing with the nine and multiplication – the two digits of the answer add up to 9 – 18 (1+8), 27 (2+7) etc. I always loved that, too 🙂

      I am digging how many of us came to a confluence in our Pentacle explorations as well. Glad you posted the 9’s addition component of the multiplication tables. Thanks! 9’s are pretty dynamic and special. Solid. Fluid. Simply a finished engine needing to be dropped into the car of the 10’s?
      Thanks to another 9-lover, Kerry! 😀

    The 9 is very special in multiplication – it’s the easiest table to teach small boys when they are fed up and just wanting to play Minecraft! I tend to forget that Pentacles is about community, I must remember that!!! Another great Blog from you Jordan 🙂

      Thanks Mucho, Alison! And, heck, if 9’s are the easiest to teach to small, fed up boys with gaming on the mind . . . 9’s are the new 1’s! lol Thanks for your perspective, Alison. Always appreciated to flesh things out in gerat ways. 😀

      stream-of-Jordanciousness. I like that better than The Silver Surfer. Very neologistically Jung at heart. Like Carl Jung happily plopped in South Park? 😉

    cool! Love the 9, love the stream of consciousness, love the video & effects, and love this community-building blog hop!

    Hugs and butterflies,

      Ditto and hugs and butteflies to you, too, Teresa. Hugs and butterflies. I rather like that . . . caterpillar up to the hug and open your arms to butterfly(verb) be inspired.
      Hugs and butterflies,

      There is no spoon, or Spoon Is Dead . . . should be on the cover of Time Magazine? 😉 Thanks on the Mirror/Mirror concept!

    I’m certainly having fun with the “9” now, Jordan 😉 Never realised the 9x table flips over after 45…fascinating…love your connection with the hieroglyph, too. I learned so much from your post. Thank you 😉

      You’re welcome. Great that you stopped by! Best to the 9’s cascading in their dynamically orderly dna way for you. 😉

    This is like one big multi-media poem! So creative and meaningful. Love it.

      Thanks! And, funny, Christiana, I kept oscillating between writing in verse and paragraphs as I was putting it together, and the personlaity of the 9’s seemed to laugh at having one or the other or the need to combine when a fluidity in more of a proetic form would be more to their liking/style. Thanks!
