My birth cards are Temperance and The Hierophant. A bit of Houses of the Holy, would you say?
September 11, 2020 at 1:37 pm
I would. I will. I do. I like that, Houses of the Holy. Excellent title for the Temperance ~ Hierophant Tarot Birth Card Pair.

Timothy, Here’s the specific link to the “Fives: Birth-Placing Identity” for your Tarot Birth Cards from my 9-part series. https://jordanhoggard.com/2011/04/09/fives-birth-placing-identity/

Thanks, Jordan. I reconize those cards, but had no idea they were my birth cards.
September 11, 2020 at 8:06 pm
You’re welcome, Timothy. Did you use the Tarot School Birth Card Calculator to find them, or did you already know?
September 11, 2020 at 9:46 pm
I used the calculator you had a link to. I had seen the cards in your posts, after looking at you post on the two cards, but I had know idea they were associated with my birth until I checked out the birth card calculator.

That’s pretty cool. Glad you checked it out. Do your Tarot Birth Cards cards resonate with you?

I get in trouble with religious types, especially fundamentalists, but also middle of the roaders, for my perspectives on theology. I’m more in line with the early Christian theology, which is mostly Jewish theology, before all the Platonic views of Heaven and Hell were brought into Christianity and the Catholic Church became obsessed with the Devil — who, BTW, is not in the Old Testament. I’ve been kicked out of four Methodist churches. Do you know how hard it is to get kicked out of a Methodist church? I’m a bit of a theological rebel I suppose. If you think that fits into the houses of the holy, then the cards resonate.

I do, And, you’ve got me howling laughing. I grew up Methodist with a grandfather who was a Methodist Minister and a Dad who was a Professor of English, Greek Tragedy, etc, and he was the same with the early Christian beliefs. I remember on day in conversation with him I started laughing way loud, and he stopped a little puzzled, and “What’s so funny?” “Dad, you said Judeo-Dhristian. Cummon. You’ve got the Judeo part all right. “.He just started beaming smiling, “That’s fair. Here let me show you the best translation of the Bible without all this modernity Biblical hijacking from centuries of poor translation.” My grandfather was similar and got moved around as he was a “troublemaker.” Meaning he had an IQ of around 180 and spoke his mind and called anyone and everyone out in that Churchill way of tact… Telling someone to go to Hell in such a way that they look forward to the journey.
I’m right there with you, Timothy. I believe in Nature. And, as David Bowie said, Heaven and Religion are for people who don;t want to go to Hell. Spirituality is for those of us who have already been there.”
Yup, the Old Testament didn;t need the Devil. “The Devil” lived comfortably within the wrath of the characters. 🙂 The Modern Devil is just a convenient, metaphorical and allegorical literary crowd control device. My joke about the Bible is that it’s simply the most grammatically correct book on the planet. It better be as many edits as it’s had. 🙂

I love the Wesleyan tradition of the old Methodist theology. Very solid and sound. It’s been hijacked these days. We had a few Jehovah’s Witnessed who worked at the office. We had monthly birthday celebrations for everyone born in any given month. Of course, the JWs don’t celebrate birthdays. I asked one of our JWs what the problem with birthdays was. She said Jesus didn’t celebrate birthdays in the Bible. I asked her to show me any passage in the Bible where Jesus went to the bathroom. Even one where he “…pisseth against the wall”. Otherwise, she should not ever go to the bathroom because it doesn’t say Jesus went to the bathroom in the Bible. She was stunned and said “but but that’s a given.” I said celebrating birthdays was a given, also.

Ohhhhhh… Snap click click BOOM. That’s beautiful, Timothy. I love that. Yes yes, on the Weslayan tradition. We had a lot of John Wesley talk more than anything at First Church (FUMC) growing up. I tend to resonate with most pre-hijacked stories/traditions. They’re like watercolors. One stroke too many goes straight from beauty to the bin.
Yes yes, our expectations and assumptions are our given, the 1st step in any given geometry proof of experience. I try to keep in mind, “Inspect what I expect. Inspect my expectations.” At least that way I have half a chance for both ears to work, especially when difference plays in in promontory level ways. Keeps the faith of listening and empathy married in discernment without second-guessing. … the old, “You never really know until you ask” statement.
Plus, I love the Jesus turning over the money changers. There’s a lot there. Rite of passage in child becoming the parent of the man becoming his own hatching from his heritage, as the money changers were Jewish People who took the job no one else wanted to do. Turning over the money changers at 12… because he was an only child throwing a tantrum in the onset of puberty? There is simply so much to work that can be done with any given passage. One year I started typing the whole thing into a Word doc with triple spacing between the lines so I could open up the literal and metaphorical and alllegorical and personifications and and and in the spaces between the lines. I think I got a bit over 150 pages in, and other projects moved it off the front burner. Still a fun idea. Long, certainly, though long in that well worth it in the experience of the process of doing it regardless of the outcome.

I think that resonates in the houses of the holy, The Temple In Man. Know Thyself. Heartfelt SIlverback Hierophant rather than some stuffy old unbending traditionalist white male as the Hierophant on a bad day.

So, I do know how hard it is to get kicked out of a Methodist church. Almost impossible. I should give certificates and badges Of honor x 4.

Plus, In addition to believing in Nature, or steeping in it rather than faith or belief, my predisposition os towards the GAWD deity when the female was not cloaked and closeted as the Holy Ghost, when the masculine and feminine were required together to form one complete identity, none of this lop-sided one-sided mumbo jumbo not as good as gumbo stuff.
Ah yes, fundamentalists and middle-of-the-roaders — just a great way to get run over. I always grin a little when I hear a fundamentalist or fanatic. Used to piss me off, then one day it came to me. Wow, fundamentalists have the most piss-poor fundamentals of the lot. Birds with only one wing, imbalanced, can’t get out of the circular prison of their own flight path, grooving further and further into being stuck on the move… in the same arc of direction. Orbit is cool, though stuck? Not so much. Fundamentalists take the fun out of fundamentals, are pretty much just mental

That’s a great way to put it.
