I’ve Posted About

I’ve posted about my Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer, Schiffer Publications 2011, in a lot of ways. I’ve done a Process of Sequencing Individuation Tarot Psychology synopsis with the Majors, and a 9-Part Tarot Birth Card Series. I’ve done a series of the Presence of the (insert Major card) series going through how in the Land of Mystereum each of the Majors visit and cameo in many of the Minors to bring lineage into the power of the Minors, give them higher octaves readily present without playing the implication game with things unseen. There’s been The Soul Seat Heartfelt Silverback Hierophant where instead of the Hierophant on a bad day, the stubborn and unbending traditionalist, the Hierophant is seated AS active wisdom born of life experience. There have been to 10-Part Mystereum Tarot Moments short, around 1 minute or less, videos For the Pentacles to date. About to resume on the other 3 suits… uh hem, 9 years later.

So, Today

Here are the Pentacles WITHOUT the perspective and bents of me describing them words so you can dive in and see for yourself. No tour guide theme. No intent, ahhh especially no intent from when I was creating and making them. They graduated from me. Now, they speak for themselves in the ways they’ve grow to. What do they say to you?

Intention is over-rated. It is simply vastly more important the way an idea or intent comes across. Can be the heartbeat pulsing actions to life, though the actions are going to speak louder than the intent words.

    I love seeing the whole suit together. I find M pents very motile. Seeing them like this make think of petri dishes, growing cultures, Brownian motion… And other things but I leave it there before I waste (in the best possible way) another day 😁. Though I might pause a little longer as the background colours and patterns of lilac and turquoise are fleshing out thoughts I had earlier about how to describe a concept in my head into words someone else can grasp…

      Wonderful perspective, Karen. I love the growing analogy, Pentacles as assets and seeds starting out with the Ace, and growing things, real things, solidly.

      Can you Turbo Read it for yourself? Infinitize your concept onto your media, paper/screen/other? Just a thought.

    Cool looking card. In my research for a paper about necromancers and exorcists, I came across a lot of incantations and prayers involving pentacles. Those who call on spirits and those who drive them out use mostly the same methods.

      Thanks — and they’re 13 more in the main post.

      Interesting observation. I haven’t thought about that like that before. These days may we should call them in, though call an Uber for those that need to be driven out. Ya know, tip large. 🙂

        The title of my paper is “Masters of Demons/Servants of God: Exorcists, Necromancers and Inquisitors: Using Magic, Miracles, Mystery and Authority to Usurp Man’s/Woman’s Freedom in the Middle Ages” I haven’t finished it. The paper was accepted in a Medieval Conference in 2019, but then I couldn’t go to the conference to present it. I got involved in another paper that I was supoosed to present at the International Conference on Construction Grammar this week in Belgium, but the ICCG has been postponed until next August.

          That’s an excellently broad title Timothy. I’d love to experience once you’ve presented it released it to see the perspectives and bents with which you’ve approached it. I’m especially interested for 2 reasons. A friend of mind who I cross paths with once or twice a year has a MA, Cultural Study of Cosmology and DIvination from the University of Kent, and as well see how you dealt with the Inquisitors/Inquisition, one of the most torturous groups to “Usurp Man’s/Woman’s Freedom in the Middle Ages.”

            The really brutal inquasition was the French inquisition starting in the 12th Century. Thousands and thousands of people died as a result. The Spanish Inquisition, though long-lived and far reaching, only resulted in a couple of thousand executions, and their trials were a little more fair. A book that made me add “Woman’s” to the title of the paper is “Discerning Spirits: Devine and Demonic Possessions in the Middle Ages” by Nancy Caciola. She has some wonderful insights. A major influence in my interest in inquisitors is “The Grand Inquisitor” from Fyodor Dostoevsky’s “The Brothers Karamazov”.

              I wondered if you had gone there with Dostoevsky. And yes, as creative as the French are known to be, and as defiant, though somehow always got called Frogs and lost many wars later… they were certainly creative in just how intensely wicked they could be in torturing people. Made the guillotine look like the easy way out, over quickly at least.

              I’m not familiar with Nancy Caciola’s work. I just wrote that on my list as it sounds vastly interesting

          I’m smiling. Our backgrounds may be more similar than I knew? When I was in Denver I would leave the off to head to an Archtectural client meeting, then downtown to the 14th floor of whatever address Mediation Chamber to provide Expert Witness in Building Code, Planning, Zoning, and Special Regulatory on whatever project I had been hired for, then a bite to eat on the way back to my office to meet a Tarot client to give a session, then work on drawings/sections/details/specs, etc and move around like that.

          Sounds like you move between multiple professions as well, and layer in Photography and Music and Video. Good stuff. Will you speak to the aspects of your Polymath areas?
