About Jordan Hoggard

Jordan Hoggard's 35+ year career spans the spectrums of Tarot, Fine Art Painting, Architecture, Jungian Depth Psychology, Astrology, Alchemy, and Jungian Participation Mystique work with the unconscious. He is a lifelong tarot reader whose 1st Tarot experiences were very young. When, not having read any books on Tarot, the cards simply told him visual stories as clearly as reading Grimm’s Fairy Tales. He is the author and creator of Tarot in the Land of Mystereum, ImaginAction, and is the author of multiple Tarot reading methods. Mystereum is a place where you can establish harmonious relationships with your ideas and feelings, explore identity and personality, and guide your intuition and imagination to support your dreams and goals in actionable ways through the Tarot. Jordan feels there is a principle of the Kintsukuroi of Self that works within the Tarot and the process of individuation where one’s inner golden splendor wells to flow up and fill cracks and fault line born of experience. Connections from experience rather than motion-limiting scars are formed through life this way where shame becomes a fiction, and Your Life Your Way becomes the sovereign leader in the process.

1  XIX Sun ~ X Wheel ~ I Magician

How does your innate and developed identity cycle your magic to pull more Water of Life out of thin air like Aquarius, The Water Bearer?

2  XX Judgment ~ XI Justice ~ II High Priestess

How do you resurrect wonderful inner gold from the past to marry your head with your heart and gut and give form to the formlessness by building down FROM your dreams to continually make them generative realities in your life? How, like a Taurus, are you unshakable and firm in how you place yourself?

3  XXI World ~ III Empress ~ XII Hanged Man

What are the most majestic qualities you have that emanate from your Creative Wellspring, your Yoniverse from which everything emanates, that both nourish you to be both afloat in clarity and live with the marrow of the matter like the structure of the ocean does? How do Mars and Pallas-Athena (aka Minerva) keep your Piscean, oceanic waters fresh with living strategies?

4  XIII Death ~ IV Emperor

What are the most key transformation drives you have that you work with to nourish and nurture how you dwell, how you make place, how and what you naturally integrate into your concept of home? Think about a Centaur and how that uniquely complete being stands on the ground and moves through life. Yes, Centaurs and Sagittarius more often lives in XIV Temperance, though when here, think of your allies. A human torso seamlessly segued with a horse body? The Centaur has two hearts, and two minds. What?! Two minds? Yup, there is of course the one in the head. Where’s the second one? It is the very earth the Centaur stands on, a Gaia Mind. How do you connect with the ally that is you while you connect with larger and smaller forces to get the job done? The Emperor here is not listening in for fumes of betrayal wafting through the background conversation. The Emperor has put down his sword and crown. His horse has set down to become the World Tree he resides within. He is not checking for betrayal. He is touching base to check on the health of the empire. Like the Centaur, how is the very ground you walk on as inspirational as the stars in your sky? I suggest to pull your 4 of Pentacles as a DNA strand to explore this in more detail. See the 4 people in the background? What? You only see 3? Ahh, yup, that’s valid. Until of course you see the 3 as a group with the spaces within and around them that composes the 4th.

How is the very ground you walk on as inspirational as the stars in your sky?

5  XIV Temperance ~ V Hierophant

How do you magically mix living forces within and about throughout your life?

How does your down-to-earth-spirit keep you grounded enough to fly as high as your roots go deep?

Like a volcano ~

Its head lives in the clouds

as it continually makes and remakes new lands with heart right here,

its feet firmly planted in the abyss.

Here, feel into the volcano at first more than the Astrological aspects of Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus.

What’s the marrow of the matter in your life?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

6  XV Devil ~ VI Lovers

How comfortable are you with the intensity of your earthly desires?

Is addiction actually a cover stone for pesky inhibitions that sneak around like creepy crawlies under a rock within you? Suggest to not try and fill closed vessels. Inhibitions enslave as easily as excesses, if not even being their blind spot source. There is a subtlety and nuanced quality to the things you pour. Rather than waste not want not, feel into how Capricorn and Venus come together to birth your Growth Principles. Together, they might compose the Individuation Planet, aka Uranus.

How does Uranus factor into as the marrow of your matter, your living structure without stricture?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

7  XVI Tower ~ VII Chariot

How do you not waste trouble when life throws you world-altering curve balls? How do you lean into the dissonance of those kinds of times to make them World ALTARing? Understand what is toxic, though understand toxic things as not being standalone. Gasoline is toxic. Gasoline is toxic unless you put in the tank of a vehicle and start the engine and go VROOM and take yourself places as you utilize its intensity by harnessing opposing forces in their dance when you dwell them together in wonderful, alchemical vessels. How can you live with more Both~And with Dignity in Difference in your life? No reason to take on other peoples’ stuff. Allow it to fill the vessel between you, have it on the table and drain it as necessary while you work together to mine the golden nuggets hidden there. No reason to work with everything on the table. Pick your poisons your way. Poison is simply too much of anything. Further, I see that as too much of a lack of connectivity which leads to withholding from yourself and others. That is isolation and loneliness rather than solitude, together.

How can you more fully embrace and gold-pan trouble by safely leaning into dissonance when it is present? You aren’t responsible to fix everything. Though, when you provide a safe environment for things and people to iron out their own kinks, with a little help here and there, you tend to start a process of natural nourishment for your environment both inside and out.

How and what do you gold-pan in your life? What do you want to gold-pan? Now’s always the time. Life is what passes you by while you’re too busy making plans. Plan like you might on a road trip where you adjust your navigation as required, and have no fear of U-turns. Control is a fiction. Navigation is present whether you smoke Hope on the couch or get in there inside and out there in your world and do something about it. What do you want to do something about?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

8  XVII Star ~ VIII Strength

How are your natural, inner animal voice and your celestial groove connected to Nature? How do you dance them together? Play a little Gemini game. Dance how deeply you listening and connected you are when you speak to inform your intuition. How does this enhance and engage a more robust education and re-education of your intentions as they directly live in your actions? I’ll suggest to look into Pluto and Scorpio and the 8th House in your Birth Chart. Maybe add in:

  • Moira #638 who I see as Inner Rhythm in contrast to Saturn’s (Chronos) chronological time
  • Poesia #946 who I see as the poetry in motion of your natural ways
  • Hygeia #10 who I see as Well Being

What are new challenges to explore in your Life Sandbox with these 3 Astro bodies discovered in your Chart?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

9  XVIII Moon ~ IX Hermit

Ahhh, and we arrive at the seismic waves within of the Moon ~ Hermit combo. What are the plate tectonics of how your inner structures activate, are engaged, slip and fall and renew, and move in and out of deeply resonate new ways for you? And more, how are new ways wonderfully recreations of your continually developing, natural way?

What inspires you deeply from unseen sources?

What moves you inside to tune your clarity of vision from a loose flame to a blowtorch tool?

How can you more fully and robustly and simply BE as the Moon is with the ocean, as the Hermit is with your inner world? What navigation tools can you enhance when your inner oceans, your outer seas, and your intuitions are naturally put into actions over time?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Oh, and 2023 is 2 + 0 + 2 + 3 = 7. It’s a Tower ~ Chariot Year. May they orbit this year as a Fixed Binary Star Couple in your sky to always give you a cornerstone to brace your navigation.

I hope you get some useful stuffstance for 2023 from these Birth Card Groupings and short snippets.

May they provide some catalysts for you to chew on for more of

Your Life, Your Way this year.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Tarot School has a Birth Card Calculator where you can enter your birth date to determine your Tarot Birth Cards.

Or, have some fun and calculate your Birth Cards yourself:

Or, have fun adding your birth month + birthday + birth year until they reduce to a number that is 21 or less (21 Major Arcana cards + the 22nd as The Fool not included)
Example: December 4, 1967 = 12 + 4 + 1967 = Add 12 and 4 to equal 16, and then add 16 to 1967 = 1983. Then make 1983 = 1 + 9 + 8 + 3 = 21. 21 is XXI The World card.  And, then 21 = 2 + 1 = 3 which equals III The Empress.  So, the Birth Cards for this date are World ~ Empress, or World ~ Empress ~ Hanged Man. Did you know that some say that The Hanged Man is the Empress’ son? I rather resonate with that.

Alternately,

12 + 4 = 16 and 16 = 1 + 6 = 7, and 1967 = 1 + 9 + 6 + 7 =23, and 2 + 3 = 5 added back to the 7 .from 16… 5 + 7 = 12 = XII The Hanged Man, so the Birth Cards = Hanged Man ~ Empress.
Note: XXI or 21 The World. 2 + 1 = 3.  XII or 12 The Hanged Man. 1 + 2 = 3.  And, III or 3 The Empress = 3.
World ~ Empress Birth Card combo.  Hanged Man ~ Empress Birth Card combo

What’s Going to Happen with the Eclipse?

What’s Going to Happen with the Eclipse?

What’s Going to Happen with the Eclipse?

From my Astro perspective eclipses are Faded Events. What are Faded Events? There is somewhat of a strobe light quality where time feels to speed up, though nothing, or very little, is missed in the interstice, those little voids of the spaces between. Interestingly, time feels to speed up in Faded Events, though in actuality I see it as slowing down. Slowing down to sync with the everything of what is happening such that one actually experiences the synapses, too, the space between the notes. And, I see the interstice, the space between the notes, or better the Psychic Synapse as 50% of each neural act. The neuron loads, fires leap-of-faith-style across the synapse. The unseen in the void is 50% of the heart of the matter, and may very well BE the heart of the matter. Then, the neural leap lands on the next neuron, and a connection is made. Then, the unseen heart of the matter from the Unconscious, from the synapse AS the heart of the matter is one-third of the whole deal.

Back to the Eclipse

Back to the Eclipse. With the Eclipse conjunct Uranus in Taurus the status quo opens up, may even tectonically explode with Uranus being the Shaker-Upper. The gloves may be on, though the mask or persona is off. The natural Nature, whatever it is, emerges. Period. You may be surprised. Maybe even terrified at the newness, may even feel blind-sided by it. Though, almost for certain, you will birth something new within that has a Must Urge to be brought into your external reality.

There are lots of butterfly-emerging-from-the-chrysalis indications. Lots of birth metaphors are present in the Eclipse in Taurus. The High Priestess, herself the temple AND that which is within the temple, may be a wondrous ally. Think and feel Pallas~Athena, aka Minerva nestling into your life under Astraea. They are the ultimate strategists. They tend to make Mars’ warring tendencies look like he is playing Tiddly Winks or checkers to their 3-level chess. Use this to make your actions more robust. Use this to discern value by making sure that whatever the heart of the matter is for you is rolled in as the driver for the actions you choose to take, or that occur to you. Being present and unthreatened without explanation are keys here.

Humpty Dumpty comes to mind. And, what will you do with what emerges after any given fall? And, more importantly, how will you facilitate the birth, the post-fall discovery? Humpy Dumpty fell from the wall, though isn’t that where the story really begins? What happens afterwards? What do you make happen? And/or, what simply happens?

Take Care with Uranus Present in the Mix

Take care with creative births in your life today and tomorrow and through the coming week. Odds are, they will stick around to be drivers in the next several years of your life and work. If you work with them like a gardener adjusts the walking path for special, new sprouts from naturalized perennials, you may very well reap wonders in your life in the coming days, weeks, months, and years.

There is a naturalized perennial quality to this Uranian Eclipse in Taurus.

Back to the Births of the Eclipse

~ Do you see the head of your creation crowning? Excellent! Proceed. Don’t waste trouble, and complete the newnesses into being.

~ Is the placenta wrapped around the neck of your new birth? Well, take care to untangle that thing with zeal and haste, though sync with just the right speed as you do. Play well in the sandbox with Uranus to induce the Water Bearer Magician of Aquarius. Nod in your magic as you literally pull the water out of thin air. Literally, be The Magician who pulls water out of thin air. Aquarius is the Water Bearer, though astrologically, it is an Air sign. Dial into the Both~And of that Aquarius quality with Air and Water. Nourish both the breath of life and water of life. Also, take care not to get overwhelmed by FICP. Functionally-Interrelated-Component-Part. There is complexity present. Though, navigate as you mind all the parts as they are interdependent. A change in one will affect a change in another. I suggest to take a nod to this thought: when you move, when you act, inside or out, be aware that when you shift focus you might also change scale. Roll with that.

~ Is your birth breach? Well, stay in there. It’s not birthed until it’s birthed. And, it’s most likely important to complete the birth process. Allow expectations to unfold and reconfigure your priorities. Stay in there and work to bring this new birth into life. The Operating Room may be messy, though your creative birth may thank you both soon and also long from now.

So, What’s Going to Happen with the Eclipse?

With the Eclipse, all in all be your own OB-GYN for your creativity, for your life. And/or be your own Birth Doula to stay in there and assure your births nourish Your Life, Your Way. Respect new ways to develop your growth as newly influenced by what comes into being. You may not know what it is until it’s born. Can you simply, with the Uranian concept of reasons being unreasonable, birth whatever is, and then nurture it into its own robust Nature to inform you differently?

Here’s a Double-Image, Visual Eclipse Story

Here are two images I find resonant with this Eclipse and being comfortable with the beautiful Uranian not-knowing. How do these two visual stories play along in the truth of your birth(s) beyond expectation(s)? How can you incorporate the space between the notes and synapses?

Uranus Breaking Through, Robustly Hatching, from Under Saturn’s Throne,

The Volcano Teaches About This Eclipse

The Volcano.

Its head in the clouds,

continually making new lands when it does,

its feet firmly planted in the abyss.

3 of Swords Revisited

3 of Swords Revisited

Over the years, when the 3 of Swords comes up, almost instantaneously I hear, “Oh shit! Heartbreak!”

First is the influence, which can be a wave crashing into you or your scene. Your responsibility is the wonderful response. Do you sense or do something? So you simply stand strong, stand your ground, and discern the influence? It’s possible to let things just pass by. Be careful, though. Life is what passes you by when you’re too busy making plans to avoid the wave-smashes. Life is what passes you by when you’re too busy assuming the expectation of things you’ve been told rather than thinking about them for yourself. The 3 of Swords in Tarot is a wonderful example of this.

If being hard on yourself actually worked as constructive criticism, it would have worked by now. Right? That’s a misinterpretation of stick-to-it-iveness. You don’t need to stick in there regardless, unless, for you whatever it is has the heart of the matter in it. No need for pros and cons or good or bad in a situation. That’s a bunch of ‘there are facts, damn facts, and then there are statistics’ bs.

There is no need to avoid not quitting. Rather than quitting or not quitting, ask:

~ What’s workable?

~ Where’s the workability? Is there any?

~ No workability?, then pay it nevermind.

~ Workability? Nods to that. what do you do about it?

good = favoritism. bad = shaming behavior.

Neither are in others’ best interest, certainly not yours.

Instead, what treasures do you hide in ‘good’ and ‘bad.’

So, The 3 of Swords

You are a Temple, inside and out. May you be and continue to become your own Temple inside and out as Tarot informs the intuition of your steps. Yup. that’s a long-form discipline of the ritual. It’s not a hassle or when will this end kind of thing. It can be Blisscipline, where the heart of the matter lives in the steps.

Always complete, never finished, lifelong.

3 of Swords Revisited

Over the years, when the 3 of Swords comes up, almost instantaneously, I hear, “Oh shit! Heartbreak!” ??? Now, how’s that? Swords are about air, intellect, thinking, communications. What’s with this heartbreak stuff? Yeah yeah, tradition and all. That’s what everyone teaches and all. It’s quite a lot like a person cutting the ends off the brisket before putting it in the oven because grandma did. Shaking my head. Grandma did it because her oven was too small back then.

Yup, That Heart is Big and Bold

Yup, that heart is big and bold in the 3 of Swords image, though to see it as heartbreak is much like banging your thumb with a hammer, when you have no hammer. This is a Swords card, not a Cup card. Why go straight to the heart with a Swords card? Especially, after the 2 may just have covered her heart to feed the heart of the matter up through the thoughts as a preamble support to develop into the 3 of Swords.

From my perspective the first thing that comes to mind (Swords pun) is to aspirate your heart. Give it some air. Consciously give your heart the breathing room it needs.

Heck. Sure, a heart without breathing room leads to heartbreak, though the heart in this card has plenty of breathing room, actually the whole scene. It is not constrained at all. It’s connected by Swords to the head. 2 of the swords are giving it oxygen like a bubbler in an aquarium, and one exhausts out the top like a roof vent. That’s more than decent ventilation so the head doesn’t get too stuffy with thoughts that don’t pulse and pump with the heart of the matter. I don’t see anything near heartbreak there. I see the head in connection with the heart. I see the heart of the matter present in thoughts and the process of thinking. And, if the heart of the matter is not present, thoughts are as useless as fish scales for dinner.

Give Your Heart Some Breathing Room

Aspirate Your Heart with the 3 of Swords

August 20, 2022 UPDATE! weekend sessions just opened up!

Thankful for the rain, so I headed inside to Zoom. Thankful for the Rain Special!

You can book your session here at more than half price.

Regularly $270 per hour. It’s Raining Special $125 per hour. Book Now.

Postscript:

When you focus on the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows (yourself), you make an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you. (Every time you act, you command the Universe. Mind that. Create with that. Act with that. Make with that.)

~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido. Translation by John Stevens in The Art of Peace

Where’s the treasure in the trouble? Gold pan those nuggets and let the remaining alluvium wash back into the river. The snake its skin shedded, the snake its skin not missed.

Personally, to go with the 3 of Swords — I find judgment to be farcical as it it generated from bias and expectations. Justice? Heart weighed against a feather? Nods. That’s not that your heart weighs a pound or so to Ma’at. Justice weighing your heart against a feather is a question of whether your heart is bouyant enough to unweight the scale with a feather.

How do you actionably use the 3 of Swords to your benefit today?

To All Who Feel They Are Alone on Father’s Day

To All Who Feel They Are Alone on Father’s Day

To All who feel they are alone on Father’s Day, for whatever reason…

Haven’t you been through the image below? Where you weather your storm, and it washed through? And, you washed up on your shore after the storm had broken? I feel that’s what Dad’s teach you to learn how to do.

First is the influence. Your responsibility is the wonderful response. Do you sensate or do something, or simply stand strong, uninfluenced? It’s possible to let things just pass by. Be careful, though. Life is what passes you by when you’re too busy making plans to account for the wave-smashes. For a rainy day? lol, buy a Kevlar umbrella. Or, get an 8’ diameter umbrella and set up your own table and chairs on the Plaza.

Shame is deadly. And, since life is fatal, I have no need of that in the mix. Plus, if I make myself feel bad, I will typically make poorer quality decisions. That isn’t a necessary feature. I can make plenty of great mistakes on my own that fuel the process with new perspectives rather than desicating the FICP — functionally inter-related component parts — with shame. I’ll go ahead and say it. I find shame to be psychological excrement. Pick your toilet paper rather than re-ingesting that stuff.

If being hard on yourself actually worked as constructive criticism, it would have worked by now. Right? No need for pros and cons or good or bad in a situation. Moreso, what’s workable? Where’s the workability?

If being hard on yourself worked, wouldn’t it have worked by now? Right. So, can you stop that for your benefit?

good = favoritism, often missing what actually is to avoid and be in denial for some celebration instead of dialing in to not waste trouble. bad = shaming behavior, often missing what is in disconnected disassociation.

Your Life, Your Way… to always wash up on your own shore after the storm has broken

So, haven’t you completed the rite of passage of the child becoming the parent of the adult? Or, are you in the process of that? Nods to your courage. That’s more than important stuffstance. If you have no one else today, no Dad or Father, can you give yourself the credit of Your Life, Your Way for being you in spite of that? Can you now then give yourself credit for having become your own Dad?

Always complete, never finished, lifelong.

When you focus on the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you make an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you. (Every time you act, you command the Universe. Mind that. Create with that. Act with that. Make with that.)

~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido. Translation by John Stevens in The Art of Peace

Pardon any typos or awkward language constructions. AutoCorrect often writes things on my behalf that I didn’t Nintendo.

Never forget… inhibitions can enslave as easily as excesses. They live in blind spots. Every once in a while I survey myself for neuroses and inhibitions. Maybe always complete, never finished, lifelong, though like the Master Gardener, I tend to them Sometimes I weed them. Sometimes, I delve into what is their message for me? Either way, the intensity of the naturalness of the identity of the garden, unthreatened, is the gig.

Strong enough to be Gentle.

Fierce enough to be compassionate.

Is vulnerability the birthplace of courage? Yup, if healthy boundaries are in place and living AS the heart of the matter in how you give, receive, and deeply listen.

How do you make shame walk the plank today to be your own Dad? That way, if you have a Dad you know, so much the more. If you don’t, (only) have yourself and maybe even loved ones, or not… How can you Dad (verb) yourself to dial in to the community celebration that is… How can you celebrate the You of You with Your Life, Your Way without a Dad? Be your own Dad. Give it a shot. I know my Dad was still growing up while trying to raise me. At least I know that now, or in the recent couple of decades. Now, is more than good enough. How can you love you better today knowing that you have become the Dad of You?

Make Shame Walk the Plank

Make Shame Walk the Plank

Hmmm, I’ve heard people say that shame is important. Nah, make it walk the plank. You might find anxiety and despair tied to its ankles and dragged over, too.

I squinch my nose in the neh way in regards to being attached to those superficial, interference patterns that sink in and invade the integrated armor that is health. No need for them. Feeding those sharks keeps the wolves at bay. Well, unless of course you have or have had a wonderful German Shepherd Wolf Mix Goddess Girrul in your life who aptly promotes Lilith to her stand-up comedian hobby to defy all her bs demonization.

Goddess Girrul, Lyra. Memoris as Blessings at 13.

You are a Temple, inside and out. May you be and continue to become your own Temple inside and out as your life experiences place the steps. How do you Temple yourself? What part of your life builds foundations up under your dreams to reach them and support them and realize them and reinforce, enhance, and strengthen them once reached? Yup. that’s a long-form discipline of the ritual. It’s not a hassle or when will this end kind of thing. Always complete, never finished, lifelong.

When you focus on the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you make an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you. (Every time you act, you command the Universe. Mind that. Create with that. Act with that. Make with that.)

~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido. Translation by John Stevens in The Art of Peace

Pardon any typos or awkward language constructions. AutoCorrect often writes things on my behalf that I didn’t Nintendo.

Where’s the treasure in the trouble? Gold pan those nuggests and let the remaining alluvium wash back into the river. The snake its skin shedded, the snake its skin not missed.

Personally, I find judgment to be farcical as it it generated from bias and expectations. Justice? Heart weighed against a feather? Nods. That’s not that your heart weighs a pound or so. Justice is a question of whether your heart is bouyant enough to dance with a feather.

Discernment, though? Cool to discernment. It has PLENTY of bias in it, though it typically originates from a place where one inspects one’s expectations to see through blind spots and evaporate their mirages like clouds. And, thinking back to a song in the ‘80s… I looked to the sky, and Ra increased the number of clouds by exactly one. Or something like that.

Never forget… inhibitions can enslave as easily as excesses. They live in blind spots. Every once in a while I survey myself for neuroses and inhibitions. Maybe always complete, never finished, lifelong, though like the Master Gardener, I tend to them Sometimes I weed them. Sometimes, I delve into what is their message for me? Either way, the intensity of the naturalness of the identity of the garden, unthreatened, is the gig.

Strong enough to be Gentle.

Fierce enough to be compassionate.

Is vulnerability the birthplace of courage? Yup, if healthy boundaries are in place and living AS the heart of the matter in how you give, receive, and deeply listen.

When unthreatened, one does not take on another’s stuff, though is excellent with providing a vessel to pour their stuff out on the table… so they can see the contents from the an outside perspective, so they can take back in its message rather than the trappings of its traumatic or influence of origin. Chaff from wheat. The snake its skin shedded, the snake its skin not missed.

I See a Trend…

“I see a trend that incorporates more Jungian Depth Psychology and properly placed rites of passage throughout life. Then, people flow right into The Architecture of Well-Being (R) with themself at their own pace. Individuals begin to understand that… ‘If being hard on yourself’ actually worked, it would have already worked by now. And, there must be another way.

And, looking at progressions and progress as the norm with regressions and setbacks simply being for discovery of more Inner Inheritance lost treasure to mine from within as a cycling moon in the psyche for amplifying and accentuating experience with subtlety and nuance where embracing and gold-panning trouble, all trouble, is a natural tool. Where Nature knows no emotion, simply knows and lives weather.

I see a trend where each person becomes as facile and capable with their inner and outer responses as Nature is with the weather. Talents are one thing, like intent. How do you develop your talents into actionable abilities? That’s a wonderful thing where You As Only You Can Be jumps out of survival to found itself and nest in and emanate from Thrival.

Stress Is Not the Issue.”

Full Moon in Cancer 1/17/22

Full Moon in Cancer 1/17/22

Click here to listen to this blog post as an audio podcast on Anchor

The full-moon-moment will arrive on January 17, 2022, at 23:48 UTC. In North American and U.S. time zones, that translates to: January 17, at 7:48 p.m. Atlantic Standard Time (AST), 6:48 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST), 5:48 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST), 4:48 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST), 3:48 a.m

With the Full Moon in Cancer at 4:48p MST / 6:48 EST / 23:48 UTC it is suggested to intuitively and without words steep in Your Inner Home. Respect that the Sun opposes the Moon at 4:48p MST so they have both come to the table with a clear view of one another. Also, respect the Silence of the Moon as it also goes Void of Course at 4:48p MST for approx 4 hours to emerge in Leo at 9:03 just after having come out of its Void of Course to go Direct again.

All in all, I suggest to dwell with your Full Moon potential in the brightness of your identity in things you can touch and feel with the Sun for those 4 Void of Course hours. Find something you love to simply keep in mind, internally and externally hold. A totem. A talisman. Then, as the Moon goes Direct, layer in the brightness of Leo identity qualities. As the Moon goes Direct, dial in and magically mix the Moon wave intuitive and deep knowings of your dreams together with the brightness of your Inner Home. Together, then flow them out into your external reality.

Simply live The Moon for the 4 VoC hours. This Full Moon is best to be prepared, and wonderfully pause in that 4-hour Psychic Synapse passage of the Moon’s VoC Silence. May this Silence place you not in holding or holding back. May this Silence be the focused and calmly intense power that is patience. May this Silence be a living meditation countdown to releasing your Moon Blessings into the world from that focused power within. Don’t be patient. Don’t count down. Just be. Find something quiet and enjoyable to do. Knotting. Drawing. Painting. Activities during the 4-hour Void of Course Moon without words would seem to be the most auspicious.

Since the Moon is Full at 4:48p MST at 27-degrees 51-minutes, look at your own Natal Chart for Astro bodies between 24 degrees and 29 degrees. How can you pour these Natal qualities into the Astro Prep of your magical mix?

vision, genius, poetry, madness, inspiring light from unseen sources. XVIII The Moon (c) 2008, 2011 Jordan Hoggard from ’Tarot in the Land of Mystereum’

How can you pour the above qualities and additional ones or fewer that resonate with you into the Astro Prep of your magical mix today? How can you further orchestrate your own momentum by pouring in your timing in respectful synchromesh of each piece’s most natural momentum today?

Big picture notion of all of the above?

Stay with the image. You know what you want to see and feel.
