Weekly Mystereum TarotScopes for August 18th to August 24th

18 Aug

Rather than a featured video this week, I felt to switch it up and give you a 2-card cartoon of a visual story in a slide show to enhance your Tarot voice and story experience. Contemplate how Judgment’s wing furls to become the Queen of Pentacles’ throne and how the Queen of Pentacles’ throne opens up to unfurl as Judgment’s wing as you ask…

“How can each of these cards pulse as the heartbeat of the other to enhance, reinforce, and strengthen your Tarot voice to inform you more fully?”

Mystereum TarotScope Allies for Your August 18th to 24th, 2013 Week

Leo: July 23 to August 22 ~ 6 of Pentacles

exchange in an epic spiral of giving and receiving, mutual exchange, circular branch or wreath of influence

exchange in an epic spiral of giving and receiving, mutual exchange, circular branch or wreath of influence

Leo, It’s a bright week for epic exchanges that benefit others and are also to your benefit.  In fact if you notice places of depletion look for mis-spent efforts where either you or the other is not fully playing their part. There may simply be small misunderstandings about roles, though make sure they don’t go unchecked and snowball and bully themselves into your priorities by requiring more attention than you have planned to give.  Simply be open and make sure that the source of depletion is corrected and noted in a way that highlights it for a bit so there is no assumption, and that responsible priorities will self-correct themselves as they are coordinated in other areas.  Lead by your example this week AND make sure there is a “track changes” of sorts so the good work you and people are doing this week doesn’t deteriorate simply because things aren’t coordinated.  This week is about the team around you, the assets of team within you, and how they all work together.  This week is about coordination.  Take time to take team pit stops to tune along the way to assure your and the best performance in the most consistent ways… it’ll amp up that Super Leo Shine of yours in almost unimaginable ways.

Virgo: August 23 to September 22 ~ 9 of Cups

spirit, blossoms, blooms, dynamic or intense fulfillment

spirit, blossoms, blooms, dynamic or intense fulfillment

Virgo, Go Go Go. Are you finding new levels of productivity that are outside the norm OR are you simply overdoing it?  Have you turned up the heat to cook OR turned on the fan too near loose paperwork?  This week is really about the dynamic things that fulfill you and how they really oscillate in a weirdly cosmic question and judgment/discernment way where your perspective may be fluidly shifting and as fluidly shifting as completely as binary doing its 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 dance-state-thing in its digital orbit between its two states.  Rather than right and wrong this week with what you are doing, keep doing what you are doing and advance your perspective to be aware of your place in your process as you switcheroo back and forth between your various objects of focus and the speeds that are most natural to productively work with them.  Don’t get all hot and bothered about complimenting yourself. Allow those energies of giving yourself accolades to be directed into setting your work cruise-control or auto-pilot so you can scout around IN your work AS a pilot flying a plane can monitor the plane more than where it is headed for a good amount of the duration of the flight.  Learn about your cruise control this week where different things going on can all be contributory to your experience rather than putting up too many choice speed bumps.  This week more than most… too many questions will cloud the issues at hand. Keep doing what you are doing as and take the opportunity to tailor and form a clearer perspective as you get more comfortable doing what you are doing.  This week be much more like….  Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.  You don’t hear them saying 1-2-3  4 cha  cha… as they are … more comfortable in the dance. Open up to your process this way this week.

Libra: September 23 to October 22 ~ 3 of Cups

satisfaction, heart's desire, expressions, celebration

satisfaction, heart’s desire, expressions, celebration

Libra, Celebrations are at hand this week as things you have had in play and out of play are cycling around to be in your life in a more both-and way rather than an either-or way. It seems you’ve found an inner higher octave very recently that strengthens your wits, your flexibility, your fluidity, your sense of humor, and mostly strengthens you making sure that things around you are contributing to the best mix for you.  Really take stock this week of who is pouring the best emotional mixtures into your life versus who is leaking poison into the system whether they are aware of it or not.  Take care to do some self-maintenance this week so that you are aware what is brought into your mix from the various cups pouring into your life.  Rather than take notes, maybe try the “only who and what I remember without having to try to remember” game.  It’s a fun one as people who are lying or aren’t sure or are posturing do not usually have statements with an emotional load, so their statements are usually A LOAD and you have to TRY to remember them.  Statements and experiences where people are fully present are usually signatured with great emotional content where they can even become indelible without even trying to remember them.  Note which is which this week, and let the unemotional fakery fall off like chaff from wheat.  This week is mostly about really getting a smile around the wheat and substance that is already in your life.

Scorpio: October 23 to November 21 ~ 10 of Swords

anguish, release, essence revealed

anguish, release, essence revealed

Scorpio, You’ve come a long way, Baby! Everything should start looking better from here and I’d bet that recent adversities have not built your character. I bet that recent adversities have revealed your character to you in a more natural way through and through.  Take it easy this week, so that what brought you to this place doesn’t re-hydrate and rear up its head(s) again. Take it easy this week Scorp for the new way you see things no may begin to put things in place in ways you’ve never seen before. A new pair of shoes you find amazing may fit the new way you walk better… literally and figuratively and metaphorically.  You’ve come a long way, Baby!  No time to stop now, huh?

Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21 ~ XVI The Tower

big change, world altering, emancipating, hang on after letting go!

big change, world altering, emancipating, hang on after letting go!

Sagittarius, Well well after your long and arduous… dare I say Death March where you barely flinched, have you learned the depth of your wits?  Have you learned where tenacity and patience are weaknesses where you begin to more and more carry more and more to the point of carrying too much.  That last straw didn’t break the camel’s back.  That last straw simply arrived just past the tipping point.  Use that last straw’s just-past-the-tipping-point energy this week as you begin to engage your whole, big picture by focusing in on the details driving the brand new environment in your work and personal life.  Some smoke and rubble may still need to clear, and you may need to blow out some smoke and clear some rubble on your own to fully engage where you are.  This week engage life like The Phoenix in first resurrecting-from-the-ashes breaths and movements. You’re probably still in the fire, though the ashes are presenting themselves for your rise. Details this week Sag, details.  They are the key and portal to your new, big picture.

Capricorn: December 22 to January 19 ~ IX The Hermit

Memory illuminating forward, inner light, perspective from experience, silent awareness

Memory illuminating forward, inner light, perspective from experience, silent awareness

Capricorn, What’s really in that cave of yours that keeps you methodically coming back time after time?  Inquiring minds want to know.  And, you certainly have an inquiring mind.  Use this week to experientially take stock of your inner reaches.  It may take some Herculean efforts for you to put down your notepad and pencils and research to show your work and all you know, though I bet this week it’ll be just what the doctor ordered… well, at least the one out of 10 that might agree with me.  Experience you life in ACTION and OBSERVANCE this week.  Be your OWN powerful witness and note things to yourself rather than taking notes.  There is a lot of powerfully goody for you this week if you will take time to participate more and not be the by-default Secretary of your situations.  People want to hear you from your unfolding-the-mysteries cave.  Speak from there.  Act from there.  You can always return to your tomes and oblique reference books.  I bet, though, when you return to them next week, you may even cogitate a clearinghouse to donate them to someone who can use them.  I’d bet that if your books were flies and you the spider, every single word may have already been sucked dry.  So, use the nourishment of those words and concepts that you may have all but murdered in your extensive research and copious note-taking.  Actively use the nourishment of those words this week so that they gave their meaning to infuse your good cause.  Put them to use.  Otherwise you may begin to experience word-constipation and glut.  There’s only so much the gas tank can take until you need to use it for performance.  Guess what?  I hear they’ll make more.  This week, turn the key and use what you’ve absorbed in ways directly to your benefit.

Aquarius: January 20 to February 18 ~ Queen of Swords

shrewdness, exact statements, clear opinions, takes no guff

shrewdness, exact statements, clear opinions, takes no guff

Aquarius, Ahhhh, you are certainly the on to be able to see right through BS and lies right as they were happening.  This week, though, rather than negotiating all those insta-observations like orange cones in a slalom, take some of them on with your wit born of your experience. It seems this week you can serve yourself well to move some of them around or outright vaporize them to more fully tune and tailor the track of your life.  This week take on the things you usually let pass by.  This week is not about confrontation, though your conflict resolution skills may be perked and at the ready to make some serious progress by stepping outside your priorities to address things that are like flak bursting in the air around you.  There may be some treasure in those storms that you can glean from the surprises of actually addressing them.  I bet that this week the things outside of your direct focus have much more to say than the ones directly in your accustomed focus.  I don’t suggest to think outside the box as that’s getting a bit charged as a cliche.  This week look at your assumptions.  Take some issue with and transcend statements like, The sky’s the limit.”  Heck, look up!  It’s right there.  Think into space and beyond.  This week is ripe for you to glean things that are just right for you that others ma feel are over the horizon, outside the rational focus, beyond the frontier. Heck, crossing a chasm in a single step is no leap of faith when you simply up your scale to the giant you are.  This week things aren’t going to be so relative for you.  Take those giant steps this week.  I’d bet that what feels normal and natural to you will stun others… and infuse what you are working on with fresh new perspectives.

Pisces: February 19 to March 20 ~ VII The Chariot

harmony and agility at speed, think integrated opposites in lieu of duality, exchange engaging from the side

harmony and agility at speed, think integrated opposites in lieu of duality, exchange engaging from the side

Pisces, Oh YEAH!, you are go go GOING!  Feeling like you are firing on all cylinders though with a calm that simply feels natural to you? Good, good, and GREAT!  Simply keep doing what you are doing this week.  Don’t let this short Scope leave you to feel like less attention is being paid to you here this week.  Au contraire.  This week, your giddy up and go that you’ve been giddy up and going will be engaged almost as if from the side.  This week I bet there is going to be some reinforcing sync coupling up with you like a Chariot syncing up with you to engage from the side that amps your energies and basically creates a mid-air re-fueling of sorts.  Simply be mindful that when you are synced up with and engaged from the side, or obliquely, you can do your part to adjust the pace and direction to facilitate the engagement.  This week is about how you come together with your allies whether they be long-term and trusted and/or new and visionary and mesh-match synchromeshing with your efforts.  So, I guess this isn’t the shortest Scope, though for you, there is more than meets the eye this week to ramp up what you are doing.  Engage it or them in synchronizing ways.  What and who you are already working on and with may already may be more amplified when you double your big picture by aligning with new allies.  You may be diversifying by doing so this week, though you are certainly increasing your lands so to speak this week.  Set some spaces into your regular schedule this week so that you have proper and respectfully complete places to engage with supporting figures and allied fields.  You may be about to be on point soon, so getting more eggs in your basket that aren’t all in one basket this week will be to your ultimate benefit.  Guess you are the Ever-Ready Bunny sync-er this week as your Scope keeps going and going and going… Use that energy this week.  You’ve certainly made room for it by implication, huh?

Aries: March 21 to April 19 ~ King of Wands

complete energies, acting in the moment, charismatic, strongly developed presence

complete energies, acting in the moment, charismatic, strongly developed presence

Aries, You are the highlighted sign this week.  Bask and bathe and relish in and work it!  Your energies are up to the task this week.  Whether you’ve been hanging back in some ???WTF is going on way way or consistently penning your efforts forward, this week is for you to stand and deliver.  Your actions are ripe with your energy and will definitely be heard and seen and felt, most likely even beyond your direct sphere of influence.  I don’t advise to focus on things outside your direct sphere this week.  Let go and surrender and be comfortable with the not-knowing of that while also directly doing the same within your sphere(s) of influence as you let go and stand and deliver.  Your time is here to step up in ways that make your higher octaves look like natural and normal gigs… because they are.  You are King this week.  No-one will press you too far to explain yourself or substantiate your actions, and if they do, I bet you have all the facts and experiences and tools to quickly bat the flies of distraction to stay your course.  Stand and deliver this week letting your energies fully infuse your actions.  

Taurus: April 20 to May 20 ~ 6 of Cups

adjustments, balanced feelings, sharing

adjustments, balanced feelings, sharing

Taurus, OOPS.  This week any bull-headedness you have is going to have to budge.  Well, that’s not true, though you are going to need to engage in more of an epic and reciprocal way where you being in charge is waaaayyyyy outside any considerations you make.  If you ARE really that strong, then you can be gentle, too, like a Silverback Gorilla or a cutey of a 600 lb tiger asleep on its back.  Your sense of actually believing what your commands are will come into play this week.  This week will not be about concession or compromise.  This week is about you coming to the table in ways only you are able.  If you stick to your tried and true ways of getting things done and getting people to do things, you will disappointed waaaaayyyyy before the week ends.  If you up your game to be more inclusive, though, you may find that you have more true allies who respect you than you know this week.

Gemini: May 21 – June 20 ~ XX Judgment

patience, respect, renewal, resurrection, feeling unseen seeds cracking underground

patience, respect, renewal, resurrection, feeling unseen seeds cracking underground

Gemini, This week you have fully resurrected.  On to new things, huh?, with the onsets of sprouts of things anew. Make sure to give yourself the credit of how much you have done and accomplished this week.  You Da Bom would be well to be your mantra this week.  Yours will in fact BE the shortest Scope. This week simply do your Gemini-Ultimate-Communicator best to provide yourself some rest and relief.  You have some uber-big gigs coming up.  Rest and rejuvenate this week.  It’s not that you deserve it, more-so that you will find new and creative ways of rejuvenation this week that you can juice up into the mix in the coming weeks.  Rest and rejuvenate this week, Gemini.  Your alleged distance this week will serve your long-term, rockin’ this-is-this M.O.

Cancer: June 21 – July 22 ~ 10 of Wands

balanced courage, agility, grace, tenacity

balanced courage, agility, grace, tenacity

Cancer, You’ve carried it quite long enough, huh?  This week is time to show your strong balance.  Heck, in other versions of this card the dude is carrying almost too much, though of course he is carrying it all and more than holding it all together… he is also pushing forward, Take your higher octaves this week and use them.  You can certainly carry more than others, issue statements like, “Ok, let’s run and see who drops first.”  Your practiced and trained endurance gives you the opportunity to move past the obvious this week.  Forget the negative aspects of your endurance gigging you to be able to run linger.  Forget that your patience basically makes it possible to “Ghandhi someone out.”  Forget remembering this week.  This week is all about your Cirque du Soleil strong balance performing things in ways only YOU can.  Don’t get lost in HOW you come across this week.  This week, come across!  You’ve made a long journey, and if you don’t simply own up to how WELL you work your process as a natural component, you run the risk of dispensing with everything before at the expense of how it informs your wits and performance in this new place you have come to.  This week, simply perform so others can experience.  The inspiration you provide may seem basic to you, though be stellar in inspiring ways to others.  Own up to your anti-hysterical bias this week in ways that inspire others.  Your track record is worth more than gold.  Melt yourself across the board to make those sacred objects that promote your legacy.  Others are going to be very interested in you this week.  Work that!  The early warning system of the vanity of your Ego in the natural way you duck things by good sense to keep your sculpted face looking rockin’ will serve as MORE than a lesson to people.  Tell your stories this week.  This week is a time where you are not so much in control… This week is a time when you are in the experiential driver’s seat.  This week will be a platform to show how well you travel… and ultimately, inspire others to travel through their process as beautifully indelicately with grace as you have.  Pardon the selflessness in your Scope this week, though you really really really have something to offer to others that they will… you might say… FINALLY… listen to.  Mind that you were methodical, and that your grace of perspective never held yourself hostage.  People will listen to you this week.  Mind that your strong balance speaks to their best needs for the long haul.

Best to your Mystereum TarotScope enhancing your week!  Till next time.

Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today… ’cause the past was once the future, and today will soon be too!

And, even in a card with no people, there is always one… You looking in through the card portal.

    1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 … A spinning circle? Is that why Fred and Ginger don’t count 1 2 3 4… they dance in binary? 😀

      😀 I see binary as the twin states of a spinning circle. Face image O, edge image |, face image O, edge image |. Makes more sense from a conceptual/philosophical perspective to me as integrated opposites of the states of one thing rather than two things in a duality.
