The Placemaker ~ The Ace of Wands & the Sacred Rite of Site

The Placemaker ~ The Ace of Wands & the Sacred Rite of Site

First, I do the coffee. Then, I do the things. ~ unknown

Happy NOW Year!

Now Year you say? Yes. Into the gas and out with the clutch and get a move on! There are things to orchestrate and strategize and read and play with now. Commitments to establish and bring to life as you enact them. What’s currently in your Idea Sandbox? towards the front burner?

Well, on December 21st on the Solstice and the Jupiter~Saturn conjunction I pulled a book project from the dusty and sleepy cells of my unfinished library of work and nudged it awake. I gave it a couple of weeks to wake up in low orbit near the front burner of my work. Today, I begin to land it, and share it. And today, I begin to turn up the front burner heat and bring it into being. I will be intermittently sharing excerpts as I reify, create, make, and land them into life to graduate from my Man-Womb Place of Creation as I build the community between the covers of this book in progress. Currently, my working title is Telling Tarot ~ Card Stories from Beyond. Part fairy tales, part anecdotal history, meaning I made them up and feel they fit the resonance of each card’s tenor, and part… well, like YoYo Ma said, Some things cannot be measured. We’ll see how much unmeasurable and moving feeling emanates from this work as I bring it into being to graduate from my sandbox into the world’s. Today, I share a draft excerpt from one card to strike an initial chord, set an initial tone, and begin to ring this work into being. Enjoy!

~ The Placemaker ~

The Ace of Wands & the Sacred Rite of Site

To site a sacred structure or other important building project, the High Priest/Priestess, The Placemaker, would literally engage in a walking meditation rite to initiate the general space where the Architecture was to be built. Minutes. Hours. Days might pass as they conscientiously went Into The Black, went INconsciously in dereistic thought rather than UNconsciously, and began to connect to the genius loci of the place, the god or spirit alive in the heart of a place. The time, the planets, the seasons naturally dialed into the day to reflect in both Light & Shadow… they tuned themselves to align to the whole of the hours, to the minute, the second. They tuned in not in chronological time, the Chronos’ Land of the watch. They tuned into Moira’s Land, the inner rhythms, the natural, inner nature of the Universe and the Self and the Archetypes. They would tune in to Moira’s Land as The All rippled the sacred fingerprint of the place throughout their inner rhythms. Consciously and unconsciously they became the inner ocean and land in the intricate and depthful intercourse we feel as the coastline.

Standing with a foot on both sides is better with a pen or a brush. They stood with a foot on both sides in a float-straddle of the coastline’s back and forth ebb and flow with the omphallos in hand raised above the ground. The omphallos would not touch the earth again until the Place of Power of the heart of the site was magnetically connected and tuned in and tuned to and resonated with in the harmonic of oneness with the place in the world.

in another way The Rite of Site of The Placemaker would continue until such time when the High Priest/Priestess would arrive at a reverberating and synchronized resonance within as they had come to stand right at the unseen Yoniverse heart of the matter of the place. This was an exercise in Actualized Archetypal Cosmology.

They would turn slowly, tune in further. They would turn until their inner resonance synced up with the vibrational energy of the site, connection enacted, and they became one, inter-penetrating force of energy at which point a sacred chord of harmony was struck within The Placemaker. Right there, in the sacred heart of the place, they half-shuffle-stepped to the side to reveal the center to the sky in a consummate acknowledgment of the discovery of the Divine there at that spot, A Place of Power. They would square their shoulders, face out from the center through what was to be the sacred structure’s front entry, and firmly plant the sacred staff of the Omphallos bullseye in the Yoniverse of the place. It is HERE! Done.

Sacred place seeded, secured to come to life, the Scribes would literally mark the front to back and side to side axes based on the stance of the Placemaker. The Heart Direction going straight out perpendicular from the chest was the Key. And then, they would proceed to circumscribe a series of ellipses outward, each centered on that genius loci spot, the Sacred Architectural G-Spot on which the structure would birth from as it was built. This presents Architecture as a Psycho-Spiritual act visible as an open gestation gesture throughout the importance of placement to inform its future construction.

The quaternity in the IV of The Emperor gets us here to this established place of ourselves being The Placemaker of Self. We then fully make the move from the 3 to the 4, with the 4 being the simplest expression of how your personal boundaries are set up and establish themselves through action. Identity is placed and secured and enters into its continual evolution in the Major Arcana IV. This is the Place of Your Creation Placed. At the arrival of The Emperor the evolutionary seed of how one synchronizes one’s Psyche within and with the external world around is planted firmly.

How one’s natural vibration strikes chords to resonate and then tune to harmonize begins to establish the Architecture of one’s identity where boundaries begin to come into being as the shape of the person, you, whether evolved or not. I make no judgment in that regard. We each are of course where we each are now. Death is the mother of memory, of our yesterdays now gone as they transform into the fertilizer for dreams and tomorrows.

Boundaries and identity track along in a mini-binary star relationship as their tennis match plays back and forth from here. One to the other, the pulse of the heartbeat of personal, self-development begins to emanate noticeably here from your energies.

Meditation Exercise: Allow the Ace of Wands to be your ally to tune your own energetic harmonics as an Energetic Placemaker of Self. With the Ace of Wands in one hand and XVII The Star in the other, ask yourself out loud, When I am tuned to resonate with myself AS my celestial groove, what does that sound like?

Short thoughts and visual arias on synchromeshed Tarot cards.

The Ace of Cups and The Queen of Pentacles and Judgment

May you perennially well up with clean emotion, and may brand new things always be waiting in your wings to enhance your natural self-leadership.

Notice the Queen of Pentacles’ throne unfurling as Judgment’s wing.

Or, does the Mystereum Judgment’s wing furl into The Queen of Pentacles’ throne as a nod to her perennial and naturalized personality?  Or, yes both?

Enjoy last week’s Sunday Tarot Service

with The Moon and Temperance

Best to your own alchemical team 

magically mixing where there are no cheap-seats in your game of life.  Play well.  Play with the vibrant motions and emotions informing your intuition from The Moon and Temperance as teammates. Play with the vibrant strength of their inner motion YOUR WAY!

Play with the Tarot Dog Tags of Birth Cards (Shiny copper, too)

May the magical space between day and night that is twilight

also be a magical, continual space between above and below like the magical mixing enhancing strong identities that is Temperance.  May twilight remind you of the unseen and unmoved mover, and resonate through and through like the invigorating experience of a field of sunflowers.

Have a great rest of the weekend and a great week!

Tarot. Mystereum. The Presence of the Hermit

Presence-of Card Cameos . . .

Major Arcana cards make cameo appearances in other cards throughout Tarot in the Land of Mystereum.  They appear throughout Mystereum in multiple cards, both other Majors and in Minors.  This is to add to, to inform Tarot character development through visual story and allusion.  I also felt that this multiple-cards-in-a-card visual story technique furthers the deck so The Minors . . . are not minimized.

This visual expression of the cards themselves journeying around The Land of Mystereum is at the heart of the very structure of Mystereum.  We could call this opening up the epistemology of card divination, epistemology being philosophy of the study of how we know things.  We could call the card cameo appearances a Tarot etymology that expresses snapshots of the origins, the lineage of each card’s divination personality in their ongoing and living developed births of their appearances in your readings.  Interestingly enough, we can also simply say, . . .

Can You pick a face out of a crowd?

“Cards in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum inform one another.”  Cards in the Land of Mystereum literally inform one another in the visual story of the cards where they appear.  They don’t start doing this after you learn them. They start doing this after you meet them, notice them in a “what’s that?” way, can pick their “face” out of a crowd so to speak.  Takes a little doing of course, yet play it like a movie . . . “Who’s that? What is THAT thing or person doing here?”

Have some fun opening up and exploring this cameo appearance Presence-Of feature in The Land of Mystereum.  It is there to assist you in card inter-relationships and working with your intuition, to further inform the Imagination Tools gifted by Mystereum’s 192-page Imagination Primer book.  Pick a Major Arcana character in your Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck.  Then, one by one, go through your deck.  See what full portions of the card and what out-takes or details appear in other cards.  Once you have walked through your deck and pulled the hangouts, the Presence-Of places of the card you have chosen, ask yourself . . .”How does this card contribute with its appearance in this other card?  What clue to this card’s identity does the guest appearance accentuate, how does it flesh out the card’s story?  Are these cards the same yet simply at different scales?  For example in the Imagination Primer the 3 of Swords expresses in a way that something beyond its grasp is formed that,

So, on to the Tarot Presence-Of The Hermit Cameos

The Hermit in The Land of Mystereum plays 4 visual storytelling parts, appears in 4 cards.  There is The Hermit card of course, and as well The Hermit character makes Presence-Of cameos in Death, Ace of Wands, and 2 of Wands.  It felt very natural for The Hermit to appear in this way as a perennial story-thread of a card’s character further alluding to and contributing personality to the sense of place throughout these 4 cards in The Land of Mystereum.  Why doesn’t The Hermit appear more?  Well, maybe he/she really does, and then again there are 4 appearances to 9’s mirror his 4-cornered world of inner identity and illumination.  This Mystereum visual character dictionary of storied appearances reaches out to symbolically spice up the deck in many places, like in the 4-charactered stage in The Hermit’s play.  Mystereum is not a deck of card soliloquies or monologues.  The whole deck is inter-related both in visual and spoken story, and each card embraces their identity as well. The Land of Mystereum is really a land, a place of divination in community with itself within and about where “All Similar, Each Unique.”

The Hermit appearing

in The Hermit card visually expresses the story of shining a light on your mysteries and confusion, turning over the pretty rocks of your beliefs to discover the treasure they hide.  With The Hermit discover your outer stillness as you actively walk the cloister of your mind.  Look up through your crown into your Psychic Sky.

I like that Mystereum’s Major Arcana characters explore The Land of Mystereum much like Harold and Milo explore their strange new worlds and find them enlightenly entertaining.  Alice does this too, though, I don’t know her as well as Harold and Milo, and Mystereum is about higher octave yang energies and putting them to conscientious use.

The Hermit cameos twice in Death

  • Hermit image on both forward and back flowing banners.
  • inner life is the herald connecting past and future.
  • through The Hermit all things are continuous much like The Hermit may be the Psychic Synapse of experience.

The Hermit appearing in The Ace of Wands

  • as the Wand holder.
  • as the one who cracks open the alchemical egg, the crucible of night, into the day.
  • as the one who compasses and squares a location to give it genius loci, making location into place with the energy of crafted identity.
  • the emanator.
  • infused and active inner energy and journey.
  • Ace of Wands as source of genius loci.

The Hermit cameoing in The 2 of Wands

  • BECOMING the alchemical egg, the crucible of night, that has been cracked open into the day.
  • AS the maker of the puzzle pieces of night and day in the Psychic Sky.
  • Analogy of The Hermit AS twilight in the Ace of Wands, the energetic place of beginning ALSO as the magical space between, the moment after crossing the Psychic Synapse, the first concrete step IN a new place.

Best to your own alchemical team 

supporting your Self in Your Royal Court of Higher Self filling the seats of Your Court to cheer on your expert skill expressed in play!  Consider these characters to already have season tickets to cheer on your strong play.  There are no cheap-seats in your game of life.  Play well.  Play with the vibrant motions established by The Hermit, Death, The Ace of Wands, and The 2 of Wands as teammates. Here is expressed quite a band of allies for your journeys within and about.  Play with the vibrant strength of their inner motion YOUR WAY!  The Hermit may also be a symbol of your inner light that both reflects and is also unmoved by outside influences . . . like the Moon in the Hermit’s sky, and there’s your next Birth Card Pair, the Moon~Hermit Tarot Birth Cards.

Check out previous Presence Of articles to discover more about the coordinated dynamism present to support and further inform your journey throughout The Land of Mystereum.

Thanks for visiting!  Best to this “Presence Of” series more fully elucidating one of the naturally hidden structures that are alive and well in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum to round out your inner team’s work.  Who knew?  Drawing pretty pictures is the smallest part of my job.  And, the more you know, the more you enhance informing your intuition.  If you’ve ever learned to drive a standard transmission car . . . and how are you with it now?  What about an automatic?  How are you with it now?  Similar to intuition I say, similar to Mystereum.  At first there are a lot of things to keep track of, and then you simply drive.  The Hermit’s puzzlepieces of sky synchromeshing, The Hermit AS twilight are both visual metaphors of the unseen and unmoved mover.

Explore Your Personal Twilights With The Hermit

as you explore whole worlds that can exist in the tiniest of things and the smallest of places . . . like the infinity inside you.

Ace of Swords & The Place of Creation

Tarot & the Place of Creation

Enjoy this Tarot excerpt from The Ace of Swords’ Enter the Ace of Swords chapter in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum‘s Imagination Primer companion book.  Each card in the Imagination Primer included with the deck has 2 chapters: one chapter for a Mystereum perspective; one chapter where the card literally speaks to you.

Tarot Cards Speaking??

You’re kidding, right?  People talk about that, Tarot voice, essenced personalities of cards, but who has written it before?  Jordan had a special recording device. A word processor in The Land of Mystereum.

Wait!  A Place of Creation?  What’s that? . . .

Well, each card has one.  All similar, each unique, they say.  

Imagine finding out . . .

enjoy this taster spoon from . . .

Enter The Ace of Swords

Welcome to Swords!  This is the place within Mystereum for you to see and feel how your day to day and night to night communications cut right through.  Cut right through from your imagination like a living sprout bursting up into the sun.  And, you’ve met The Sun.  My does he shine brightly like YOU inside!  I’m like a single sunbeam.  He’s like all of your brightness.  So, let’s focus shall we?!!

(c) 2010 Jordan Hoggard

I love sticking to the point and keeping things clear.  I feel ideas will just about stand up for themselves like sprouts bursting up.  And, remember, maybe when a sprout bursts up into the sun, it may not know where it is.  May not have met my brother The Ace of Wands.  No matter.  The sprout naturally placed itself.  That’s what I’d like to show you here.  I’d like to show you how naturally well-placed ideas cut right through when you are aware to notice detail.  Sometimes this occurs ESPECIALLY even when there is no certainty of placement.

I love meditating options objectively before taking my next logical step.  The Emperor came and gifted me that. I love identifying and understanding causes through feeling.  The Queen of Wands gifted me that.  I love trusting my inner, personal convictions.  Temperance taught me that.  I love cutting through the bull all the while protecting my privacy.  We can thank Mr. Chariot for roaring through my imagination with that one!  I learned my speed and agility in my cutting through from him.

Then something happened.  I had already been heated and cooled and rolled and hammered diligently and patiently for a long time.  I was annealed and then came the tempering.   I was a sword after all, tempering was something I wanted.  What happened is that I hesitated.  After all this work on me, I was held at my hottest point over brisk and cool water.  Fortunately my Sis the Ace of Cups had provided it all.  I was to be quenched, thrust at my hottest temperature into the cold water.  What if I cracked?  What if I. . .Let’s stop right there.

See how easy it is to build bad drama with worry?  I like thicker dramas than that.  Heck, I had been through all the other parts.  What was I worried about? Here’s what it was.  After all the hard work and all the studious efforts I was to be thrust into an unknown which made me who I am today!  So, like stepping onto the stage for the first time, IN I WENT HOT into the coldest of water pssssshhhhhhhzzzzssssssss!  Gota ll steamed up and NOT a crack anywhere.  In fact that may still be the most favorite speaking engagement I’ve had where I just went right in and was quenched.

So, after all this, what I’d like to tell you is that even when your steps are unsure, if you have been working hard and going step by step, AND have a positive feeling, even a positive unknown of a feeling, keep it up.  Sometimes, like with my quenching. . .that last 5% of the time felt like the OTHER 95% of the time.  The 2 of Wands taught me not to perceive many little things as one big thing.  I took that to heart in my quenching.  I decided to not let one new thing get missed.  And, here’s the catch.  I KNEW where that water came from.  It was good water from a good cup.  I took a risk, just like those sprouts bursting into the sun.  Keeps me sharp now, though.

Tarot Imagination Tools

Imagination Tools From The Ace of Swords:

  • I gift you the ability to cut to the chase, to the core idea.  Bet it’ll show you
    the way to sync up almost every time with the proper, sharply focused
    perspective.
  • I’d like you to make a gift of your own creation.
    • You’ve come a long way.  Hoping you’re enjoying Mystereum and your imagination tools,
      and especially your imagination. I’d like you to have your own quenching of
      sorts.  Pause.  As you move along, I would like you to use your imagination to
      come up with a gift for The Queen of Swords for when you meet her.  It’s all
      YOU!  Use your imagination!  She mentioned that it’s ok to jump ahead to get a
      sense of her first.  But, with your imagination, I would like you to present her
      a weightless gift from you imagination.  She has a vast collection of sharp
      ideas.  I’d like you to tell her one of yours.

Your Mystereum Tarot Moment With the Family of the Aces

The Tarot Family of the Aces

Hi!  Jordan Hoggard, author of Tarot in the Land of Mystereum, here to explore potential with the Tarot family of the Aces.

Numerically the Aces correspond with the Sun, The Wheel, and the Magician of the Major Arcana.  You can explore the relationships of these numbers further in my Birth Card blog series. So, let’s explore potential with the Tarot family of the Aces.

With the Ace of Pentacles: Sense your Solid Inner Inheritances, the assets and seeds you were born with.

With the Ace of Cups: trust your heart, and with bright eyes your ideas may begin to pulse with life.

With the Ace of Wands: Direct your energies.  Place them where you feel best.  As you do, feel the magnetism of things that are wonderfully located.  Use your energies to magnetize yourself and inspire the energies around you.

With the Ace of Swords: Gift yourself the ability to cut to the chase.  listen to its vital lesson. . .listening, Mind that you stick to the point.

So, a vital Tarot lesson from the Aces can be to allow the whole Tarot Ace family to inform one another. Unseen cards in each Tarot family can be silent, family Tarot Counsel, a ground of invisible Tarot support to inform each card. Visualize each Tarot card as a flower bud.  Allow it to open up and bloom with the allied fields of forces each Tarot petal contributes.  Discover each Tarot petal as a treasure. Do they unfurl like a butterfly’s wings?  Visualize the Tarot landscape scene of your spread.  Let each card position in your Tarot spread be a center in your personal, Tarot landscape. They can be neighbors. Places. Questions. What action to they indicate to take?  Ask the community centers of your Tarot spread how they get along in your Tarot world. What kind of living flower bouquet do they make in your Tarot Garden?

The center doesn’t have to be in the middle.  Think of the center of a flower. Does it move around up top in the breeze like a gardener tending to his flowers?  Do Tarot petals unfurl around its center that is up top, not in the middle?

I hope you get some great takeaway from this.  Do please let me know.  Are there topics that you would like addressed by the The Land of Mystereum families?

Jupiter’s Blessings to You and Yours,

Jordan

Ace of Cups to Sharing

And may the pure water from your higher self

flow into your day-to-day life,

to in your every feeling express and nourish the fresh new assets

that your presence brings to the world.

Being grateful for yourself smile in life with those you cherish.

May your Higher Self ride in on a cloud and fill your tanks.
