Rather than a featured video this week, I felt to switch it up and give you a 2-card visual story from the Land of Mystereum in a slide show to enhance your Tarot voice and story experience. Contemplate how the Tower ~ Chariot Birth Card pair can each pulse as the heartbeat in the other 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 25th to 31st, 2013 Week
In general it’s a big week and an important time in the world with so many Major Arcana appearing in the Scopes. I suggest that this week you read the Scope for the sign before and after yours so that you widen your perceptual reach to better inform your navigation of all the big and important things that will be happening this week.
Leo: July 23 to August 22 ~ Ace of Wands
Leo, This week the time is right to plant your sacred staff in the ground and begin the process of establishing a new place. The High Priest in some ancient cultures would plant his omphallos, his sacred staff, in the ground to locate and orient the placement of new public and/or sacred structures to direct how they faced… Om phallos, lingum of inception conceiving in the Yoniverse of the Earth. This could be breaking ground building a home, pulling the trigger on that key project you have in orbit to get the rubber to meet the road, landing that key client. This week is all about a single, new energy that is very specific in your life and / or work. Whatever it is, it’s time to place it, and to place it well and with conviction. Mind your first steps this week as the energies are very attuned to things working only when they get off on the right foot. You may want to do a little Hokey Pokey practicing before you decide which foot goes forward first. Be fresh and warmed up this week when you set this new gig into play. When you bang your drum for the first time this week, it’s going to be heard. So, make sure your timing and placement is spot on for the most effective results.
Virgo: August 23 to September 22 ~ XV The Devil
Virgo, This week your comfort levels with earthly desires may go on autopilot as you notice and say hmmmmm to an inhibition of yours that all of a sudden becomes clear. Remember that inhibitions can enslave as easily as excesses, so whenever this sneaky little rat-bastard surfaces pay attention and track it. You may not need to do anything other than realize its presence below the surface so its trickery does not become conscious as self-sabotage. Inhibitions are tricky business. Large doses of laughter can sometimes ramp up the defiance required to confidently out them. Read between the lines this week a bit more than normal as the Devil may truly be in the details for you this week. Playing hide and seek with the sneaky booger this might serve to confuse it enough such that it comes to you openly in a dream and then goes “OOPS” as you will smile that you tricked it into showing up. I don;t suggest spending any direct time on this this week. Simply keep your senses perked to notice a sneaky inner gig this week while not letting on that you notice it. Once you’ve seen it in action several times without it knowing, you’ll have that upper hand you need to remove the mobile splinter it truly is.
Libra: September 23 to October 22 ~ XXI The World
Libra, .Are you traveling this week? Are you intrepidly exploring new inner reaches? This is a great week for travel and inner exploration, one or both, as the energies indicate a portal opening up for you. Visualize that you are inside an obelisk shaped spaceship. Look into this card as if you are inside the obelisk looking up. Note the vanishing point at the top in the center of the looking glass. Where is the wormhole portal of the obelisk-top-window looking glass going to take you this week? This week let yourself move freely between worlds and places in your life be they inner or outer or Other. This week you may just find THE powerful ally you’ve been looking for in of all places… the Other Side. Smile as you trust your gut, track with your intuition, and flow freely to places that didn’t exist before that will immediately seem as if they have always been there.
Scorpio: October 23 to November 21 ~ IX The Hermit
Scorpio, This week is ripe to unfurl mysteries and open up to the true depths of your experiences. Your natural sense of discernment born of years of experience will light your way right through any darkness and trouble. Make sure you are as sure-footed as possible this week as your stance and posture and balance are going to all be vying for top bill to orchestrate your presence this week and choosing one over the others may serve to throw you off balance. It’ll be better this week to tune up your stance and posture and balance and then zip up those boots or close the hood and allow them to work for you rather than at you. The way you carry yourself in total this week will probably upstage anything you have to say. So, this week be more laconic and brief and let your non-verbals do the talking as you walk the walk.
Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21 ~ X The Wheel
Sagittarius, This week your life and projects may feel like welcomed snow-melt from the mountaintop flowing to feed a rushing river. Something you signed up for or put in motion several months ago that has been lagging is finally going to come around and have the green light. Flow right in and hang on,, and also be fluid though don’t go with the flow. You are in for a big ride, so stay hydrated this week to keep all of your inner and outer senses fluidly working together like the many wheels in a craftsman-made clock. It’s time. It’s time this week to get that show on the road and navigate the big waters. Forget about your performance this week and you will perform even more naturally than you normally do. The new water of you entering your rushing river has traveled well and long to get to you. This week see your whole life up to this point as your preparation. “How long did it take you to do that painting?” Rather than 45 minutes or 45 days, ramp up to higher octaves to respond… something like, “My whole life up to that point” is a much better response than the canned answer of how long it took. How long it took takes it out of context in your life. Don’t break things down this week. This week is best for operating on all cylinders at speed and in motion. Do any tuning and tailoring on the go as you go along. Racecar drivers don’t change the engine in the middle of the track. This week stay hydrated and be on the track more than in the pits. Time to race that thang.
Capricorn: December 22 to January 19 ~ 9 of Swords
Capricorn, This week you will have the opportunity for dynamic communications that are going to get you going off of any stalled ideas and thoughts that simply have gotten lost in wide expanses of featureless, inner plateaus. I’d bet this week that you may see just how and where these ideas and thoughts need to be placed as you take time to realize that your inner plateaus were not where to solve them, and that your inner plateaus are more like holding tanks more for keeping the strong swimmers of your ideas and thoughts corralled out in the open. Enjoy the Realize video here by Cobie Caillat. There may be much more in her lyrics than meets the ear initially. Take time this week and lead those ideas and thoughts right into where they belong.
Aquarius: January 20 to February 18 ~ 10 of Pentacles
Aquarius, You have a pretty full house this week, so keep those humor muscles warmed up to keep everything in stride. You may feel solidly pulled in lots of directions, though if you re-purpose this reaction this week you may see that all that tugging simply means you have a lot of value to offer that people really really want. Expand yourself to see things from a higher perspective or larger scale. I’d advise to stay off he high road this week as my metaphysical traffic report indicated it would be rather congested with self-righteous and presumptuous poseurs who are there more because they followed too many inspiring quotes there without following them up with actions. This week also avoid Conclusion Island as once you jump there it’s dang hard to get back. So, back to your week. Wear pads. Wear pads. Seriously, it’s a full contact week and you want to be the best prepared to be in there fully in contact. So, wear pads but keep a pinwheel and a yoyo and a frisbee handy. The pinwheel is for spinning smiles WHILE you stay dead-on serious… and though you can do the same with a spinning yoyo and frisbee… the frisbee and yoyo have multiple uses. You can view this week as a battleground though just as easily see it as a jazzy sandbox. I suggest the jazzy sandbox as you may really get some goody out of intense situations rather than feeling threatened by them. Don’t wince at dischords this week. Really explore and utilize just why they get to you. Be the one who can walk across the chalkboard scraping their nails to silence chaos this week. Each time you do, assign teams to the troublemakers so that you direct their energies back into the tasks at hand. Be the boss who cosmically delegates this week as there is too much solidly in the mix to reasonably do all by yourself.
Pisces: February 19 to March 20 ~ XII The Hanged Man
Pisces, Use the depths of your nature to stay afloat in clarity throughout this week. You’ll need a strong sense of being both engaged and detached at the same time this week. Keep humor near and your wits even closer this week. Things are forming for you in a way like a souffle that shouldn’t be disturbed. Be on the safe side this week and allow your detachment to suspend you so you don’t get tripped up. Also, a more single-mindedness towards your priorities this week will be well served by not allowing anything to disrupt your focus. Be firm but stern as your productivity may be magnetic to people, though make sure they know to be spectators so they don’t traipse all over your work with their pesky interruptions. They may mean well, though you are not a circus side show. Rather than relegating them to being spectators, task them to support positions… or… uh hem to go do their own work that they are avoiding. Use the depths of your nature to stay afloat in clarity throughout this week while tasking yourself. There is a potential for insight through your work that will be priceless in the coming weeks. Make sure to be aware enough to sense its resonance.
Aries: March 21 to April 19 ~ 2 of Wands
Aries, This week steer clear of storms. Things raining down all around you may only serve to deflect you from being aware of what is really in play. Notice all the delusional moons in the inner night sky on the upper right of the card. Notice the single moon in they day sky on the left near the middle. This week don’t perceive many little things as one big thing. See through the mirages and trickster wannabe fakes. There is a savante kind of energy in your mix this week, so understand the depths of things presented without requiring exhaustive explanations that can arachnid-style suck them dry of useful substance. Morale is an important component of effective projects. This week discern the tenor of attendance in situations be they people or objects or ideas as you steer clear of distracting storms. Whirlwinds are best left to blow by this week as you remember to not get overwhelmed perceiving many little things as one big thing. Go step by step this week and you won’t get swept away by false senses of trendy ways to do things.
Taurus: April 20 to May 20 ~ King of Cups
Taurus, This week you have the opportunity to open from your deepest places in complete confidence when you deem to. Just like a king who will stand and deliver without explaining himself or petitioning others, do just that this week. Express yourself from your deepest reaches with your strongest and most comfortably calm sense of authority. Take things in stride this week as you survey your surroundings and only openly respond when you have formulated a complete position. Leave the half-baked things to be minded by others in the kitchen so to speak. It’s important this week that your performance is noted for the higher octave it comes from. Take no chances with that this week. Make sure you have good venting outlets or release mechanisms like walking or exercise to your liking. Keep your fresh responsiveness cued up and any reactionary tendencies tamped down this week to put yourself across in the most effective manner.
Gemini: May 21 – June 20 ~ V The Hierophant
Gemini, You more than most are probably familiar with bad days bullying people into being stubborn and unbending traditionalists. So, this week table that understanding and use your Ultimate Gemini Communicator status to operate more from the place of your down-to-earth spirit. This week people who do not have your consummately understanding nature may be flocking to you in complete WTF kinds of questioning ways in regards to things going on in their lives. Do your part to show them perspectives of the real heart of the matter driving them and their situations rather than allowing them to continue to be bullied by their own flinching reactions. Show them how they are not really coral so they can begin to stop jet-zipping into their shell at the slightest movement. You may feel like people you encounter this week have a sort of relationship PTSD, so simply be your glorious and ebullient Gemini self and rub some of that off on them. Call it your Magic Dust week. Be mindful that you are giving of your time and experience more than directly of yourself this week so you keep your go-juice tanks topped off and full. Invite people to come to you this week rather than you seeking them out.
Cancer: June 21 – July 22 ~ 4 of Wands
Cancer, Fresh new energies are flowing in out of the blue in surprising ways this week. Your established energies will be complemented and refreshed by the new infusions. Take care to step up and welcome new things this week so they can be directed to enhance your environment in the best ways. Things are more and more being drawn to the magical nucleus that is you, and this week the flow will most likely be stepped up a notch. So, keep your best metaphorical catcher’s mitt handy with an even bigger welcome mat. Enjoy the influx. A lot of the wonderful sharing you provide is going to be reciprocated this week. People may actively seek you out this week, so arrange some blocks of time each day so you can accommodate receiving them graciously rather than with an agitated or hurried sense. Odds are you’ll enjoy their company, and you may benefit from the change of pace when you resume the things you were working in a refreshed way where you’ll be more attuned to recognizing and capitalizing on new opportunities.
Leo: July 23 to August 22 ~ Ace of Wands
Leo, This week the time is right to plant your sacred staff in the ground and begin the process of establishing a new place. The High Priest in some ancient cultures would plant his omphallos, his sacred staff, in the ground to locate and orient the placement of new public and/or sacred structures to direct how they faced… Om phallos, lingam of inception conceiving in the Yoniverse of the Earth. This could be breaking ground building a home, pulling the trigger on that key project you have in orbit to get the rubber to meet the road, landing that key client. This week is all about a single, new energy that is very specific in your life and / or work. Whatever it is, it’s time to place it, and to place it well and with conviction.

When you bang your drum for the first time this week, it’s going to be heard. So, make sure your timing and placement is spot on for the most effective results.
Best to your Mystereum TarotScope enhancing your week! Till next time.
And remember, even in a card with no people, there is always one… You looking in through the card portal.
