Tarot Psychology ~ Sequencing Individuation

I’ve Heard…

the Divine Feminine creates, the Divine Masculine manifests. This can be supported by the natural leadership of the Queens and the implementation orders of the Kings.  But wait! Let’s not go too far too fast. Shall we steep a bit?
I wonder more if it is in fact the reverse. Could be a Both/And as well, though the flip, the mirror of the above feels more apt. I feel the Divine Masculine Creates, the Divine Feminine manifests.
Ok, let’s pause right here. Yup, Both/And. It takes two to Tango. Functionally-Inter-related-Component-Parts (FICP) assembling with a fluid fluency and living dynamism.

Tarot As Psycho-Spiritual Architecture

The Temple In You


Sacred Sanctuaries Built in Resonant Questions

Architecture. It’s Classical Greek Roots

= arche and techne

Arche Creates

~ Arche is the creating, the first spark of an idea. It is formless and can = inception. The Creating.

Techne Makes

~ Techne is the making, the putting together OF that idea. It gives form to the formlessness and can = conception. The Making.

Creates: 1st-sparks, inspires, and imagines a Lotus

Creates = brings into being such as an idea, and it is formless as it is still in the mind…  to create.

Makes: grows a Lotus out of the mud

Makes (or manifests) = brings formlessness into form, soulfully spiriting matter with identity gestating… Not born yet, though…

To Create, To Make, To Gestate To Full Term, Birth, Naming

all together = to manifest.

Subtle Distinctions

There is a subtle distinction between “to create” and “to make,” though also a hefty one at their conceptual base.  People often utilize “create” and “make” as synonyms, and though they are in the same family, they are not the same.  They are complementary in the process… like supplementary angles = 180 degrees, and complementary angles sum up to 90 degrees — (embedding disabled by request).  One is, say, 120 degrees and then the other is 60 degrees to make the supplementary sum of 180 with 120.  They are not the same, though they contribute to the 180 or final product… they manifest or make the supplementary relationship in total.  Like tossing up a tennis ball and serving an ace. Two things that taste great together. Like creating and making, they work together, though they are not the same.

Divine Feminine creates, Divine Masculine manifests? Or, the other way ‘round. Or, Both/And?

Sequencing Individuation Through the Tarot


Individuation Sequencing Through Tarot

Does the Order Matter?

Please Comment

Interesting with the Tarot that in regards to statement, “The Divine Feminine creates, the Divine Masculine manifests?,” there is a role reversal in regards to this with The Magician and The High Priestess… where The Magician is the first spark on the table in the Place of Creation bringing forth the formless and weightless idea to orbit in mind/psyche/heart energy from The Place of Creation.
It is the Mag, then, that is about inception. The High Priestess gives form to the formlessness of The Magician’s first spark inception. Call it sperm and ovum.  The High Priestess, then, is about about conception after The Mag’s inception.

And then of course we move to The Empress and Emperor. She creates By carrying to full term and emanating from her Yoniverse. He makes by establishing place, Genius Loci.

Inception to Conception

And, What of Birth & Naming & etc.?

Inception to conception, if so from The Magician to The High Priestess…  Then, of course on to The Empress where the Priestess’ form is carried to full term to be birthed and emanate from the Yoniverse… Then, from that here is a little Tarot Psychology individuation sketch outline… to simply track right through them. Each and every step on this trail can open up expansive journeys of further study and experience.

How Would YOU Order the Tarot?

Or, in what sequence have you experienced individuation?

Do you gravitate towards some card stations more than others?

Do you resonate with some more than others?

Do you avoid some card stations?

  • How would you order your Tarot suits before continuing this sketch exercise?
  • Would you do Aces first? … and then the Family of 2’s, and then the Family of 3’s, and then the Family of 4’s, … and so on?
  • Would you go suit by suit?  If so, how do you order the suits? Earth Air Water Fire? Pentacles Swords Cups Wands?
    • Personally, I prefer to order them like a creation story: Earth Water Air Fire. Pentacles Cups Swords Wands, though ask me again tomorrow. Not flippant, simply perspective that continually evolves from experiences.
  • How does this allude to psychological development?
    • Does it need to assume individuation? Is this necessary? Is this helpful?
  • And, if you do the switcheroo with Strength and Justice, VIII XI card flip-flop, how would you revise the above? Is one a basic foundation of the other, and thus necessitates it coming prior? Or, do you swim in the chicken or the egg story in regards to the sequence of Strength and Justice relative to which one’s VIII and which one’s XI?

What things do you create?  What do you make from your creations? Are they informed by your individuation? Or, is individuation like practice and warm-up, where the warm-up is most likely not part of the performance?

Listening to the Mystereum cards speak, resonant like an epic movie.
