Perpetual Present & OFLs

I live my life as if my life depends on it,

in the perpetual present.

I value my experiences, regardless.

They have all together brought me to where I am,

where I am now.

No regrets. Many OFLs.

My mistakes are all OFLs. Every. Single. One.

OFLs? Opportunities For Learning.

The greatest fear for success should not be failure. It should Be succeeding at something that doesn’t matter. ~ Francis Chan

Proceed as if success is inevitable. ~ Unknown

Întention is over-rated. It’s simply far more important the way something comes across. ~ Jordan Hoggard

My process of being naturally comfortable with the not-knowing while getting things done? Maybe it’s due to having almost died on the mountain once, twice, three times? Possibly. Maybe, it’s my Natal Astro Chart config, and how I’ve come to resonate with it in myself. Maybe, it’s also due to a life of welcoming experience over worry, as I seem to get happier the older I get.

By not numbing to just ignore intense gigs because my awareness has eroded, just have become accustomed to them, and/or didn’t like the discomfort? Nope. Nope. And… Nope. In fact I notice and respond or don’t more now.  3+ years of bi-weekly Brainspotting in my late 40s certainly didn’t hurt.

I love that someone recently asked me about my 5+ year radio silence. DOOD, what DID you do while you were gone?! You’re so clear now, even in your abstract, like you really love what you’re doing and know how to care about it more. AND, we can follow and all share in that as well. You were wickedly brilliant and interesting before, though at times hard to follow. You’d Easily paint the WHOLE picture at once in a stroke, 1,000 words or 5 word metaphor, at every scale. Easily clear to you, though… Yup, YOU just saw it and felt it, though keeping up with your revs and where you were going, uh hem… and you, NOT FAIR!, speed-shifting in sync bypassing the clutch… it was exhausting at times, and actually almost impossible, though ALSO intriguing. Your simple steps were leaps of faith for me, and I’m no Evil Knievel, though I’m ‘out there, too.’ Understood, you were thinking and feeling out loud, Effin Abstract Expressionist you were, and NOW, TOO, though I feel it clearly!. I fuckin’ resonate with what you’re doing SO much more now! Glad to have you back! And, more so, glad you have a more aware clarity of what you are doing in a way you can express it to us! You also seem happier. I may like that even more.

I live my life as if my life depends on it,

as those 3 times on the mountain it certainly did.

On the 3rd one — a short time after, me still swimming in the experience still wet behind the ears so to speak from it  — i paused. I felt something stir deep within me that rose to the surface like Poseidon rising up through my Natal 10th House Neptune`Mercury conjunction in Scorpio, supported by my Pluto~Pallas-Athena~Uranus conjunction in 8th House Virgo, given plenty of room by my Moon~ASC 12th House conjunction in Capricorn. And, my Chiron could not have been more pleased. My head popped up as if a long lost friend suddenly appeared as if to continue a conversation interrupted, paused to gestate and ruminate, years ago.

Yes?, I asked, all ears. The message response came back…

Yes. Yes, indeed, Jordan. Yes, keep that. It’s yours. Keep it.

My rock. It was my rock. My equilateral triangle, basalt rock from out of the sand at the top of the Mt Democrat 14er scree field. Sand and blood and a rock. I kept them, blotted the blood with sand, Sand-Aid not by Curad. The rock. I kept the rock. The blood and sand healed away. I kept the rock in my left pocket for 5 years. What happened to my rock? It’s now a talisman. It’s now the talisman on my wand which is a whole ‘ other story in itself.

What Do You Keep?

What cornerstone do you keep in your life to brace against?

How Can You Utilize That to Further Invest in Yourself?

Adversity doesn’t build character. It reveals it. ~ James Lane Allen

Good. You’re feeling pain now. And, you know the best thing about pain?

No, Master Chief.

The best thing about pain is, it tells you you’re still alive, and to get home! ~ G.I. Jane

Get Home!

Well, theses days, we’re typically already there,

and that can be utilized.

Mystereum Review & New News x 2!

And Tarot in the Land of Mystereum

Mysteureum Delirium! review from Mary Nale + New News!

Here’s the New News!

First off, before I get to Mary Nale’s wonderful review below…
I am honored. What an accolade! I cherish the the depths of personal, process experience and Soul Gardening that brought Mystereum into being. I feel chords plucked on the harp of my heart-strings. They resonate for my creation’s journey as it has made its way so wonderfully out there in the world after it graduated from me. Kudos Mystereum! Thank you Marcus & Tali!

&

Jordan’s Journeys now has A new home at JordanHoggard.com! This is the flagship post out of the gate! I have a New Moon Blessing gift for you coming very soon.

Ok, on to a vibrant and verdant review

There are more reviews, and I’ll post them in the upcoming weeks. I have 5 more that just floor me every time I revisit them. They will be in no particular order, as I resonate with them all, each differently. Like Mystereum says, All similar, each unique. And, The Sun extends, I’m you, as only you can beHave fun with that one in your own ways as only you do. How were you particularly born to see?

Explore, enhance, reinforce, and strengthen the clarity of your own vision with Tarot in the Land of Mystereum:

Now, to the Review

 

Okay, let me first say THANK YOU to Schiffer Books for sending me Tarot in the Land of Mystereum by Jordan Hoggard.
Book Details
ISBN:  9780764336010
Size:  11 1/2 ” x 6″ x 1 1/2″
Illustrations:   78 color art cards + 192 page companion book

The box that this comes in is sturdy and has a magnetic lid.  The book and the deck nestle in here very nicely.  The colors are vibrant and the card backs are like looking out a picture window.  (Well, that’s what I see anyway, you may see something totally different.)
The first thing I noticed is that these are not standard size cards, they are larger -no squinting to see what’s going on in the image.  I’ve come to like larger cards so, this is just fine by me!
Before releasing the cards I took out the companion book and started reading…within seconds, I was smiling and hearing the words on the page come to life in Jordan’s voice!  (This deck is all about your imagination after all…)
This book is so different from what you expect to see in a companion book!  It’s truly entertaining and packed full of information.  This is what I would call a “Story Book”.  Okay, if you need a more grown up term for this, it’s a Novel with well developed characters.
It was hard for me to put the book down once I started reading, the story moves you right along through every single card in the deck!  The “Imagination Tools” will serve you well and open your mind to new possibilities.  The key words are given under the image of each card in the book, you will notice right away that these are very different than what you’re used to seeing…they have more depth and come from a totally different perspective than what you find in other books and decks.  Many authors say they have a different approach to Tarot but, Jordan really does — and here’s the book to prove it!  I can’t imagine how much time went into writing this book, it’s something every tarot reader should add to their collection.
Now, let’s talk about the cards!  I mentioned they are larger than a standard deck but, not so large that you can’t handle them.  The cards are sturdy and will last you a very long time.
I shuffled and shuffled…The Queen of Swords!  I love what Jordan has done with this card-the three swords are forming a triangle around this Queen.  She’s very focused.  I wouldn’t say she looks annoyed, just very intense.  I like that!  No-nonsense!  The Queen of Swords is one of my favorite images in this deck.  I think this card shows how The Queen’s attitudes and intentions can sometimes be misunderstood.  She isn’t mean, she just doesn’t believe in beating around the bush — direct is the way to go with this lady!
Look at this High Priestess. Is there anything that she doesn’t know?
These two cards represent what this deck will mean to me… how it will treat me and what I can expect.  I think it’s saying that it will tell me anything I want to know and it will tell me in a manner that’s direct and to the point.  This makes me smile ’cause I like things on the direct side!  I look forward to working with these images and re-reading the book. I totally “get” how this is an Imagination Primer!  When you look through the cards, there seems to be just a whisper of something… like when something is on the tip of your tongue…then your mind opens up and the information starts coming.  If a blue print could come to life, it would look like this deck… that’s what I think!
Each character tells his or her story in the book and the deck provides the visual aid to get your head in gear… I just don’t know how else to explain this so, I sure hope this makes sense!
I recommend to buy this deck, and it’s available at :

The Alchemy of Fear versus Being Afraid

I find there is an Alchemy between having fear and being afraid. Maybe it’s that I’ve been in enough places where being afraid will literally kill you?

My perspective now is simply that fear is a wonderful tool of awareness, a friend, an ally, a fecund compass sentry notifier to inform navigation. Things in our surroundings, whether they’re polished or predatory, they notify us. They simply notify us.

Do you have fear, or are you afraid?

From my perspective fears notify us as subtly as cone zones on the highway. They notify us as clearly as a heaved lip on the sidewalk we don’t trip on, and sometimes as intensely as flashing lights indicate a part of the bridge ahead is out. Sensing them, feeling them, listening to them, incorporating them, I firmly feel one can use fear as an intense notification and navigation tool. One can intend to navigate, wise in time, around what would otherwise be impending danger right on the fly. And further, good boundaries further present one’s greater intentions to move forward.

Are good boundaries fundamentally applicable? I think so. I guess this would otherwise be known as, “How Do You Own it?” Heck, there’s NO Principle’s office when you adult, or are a non-pupating adult. It’s your responsibility and accountability that present as drivers. Unless of course one is in Sales. Then, oftentimes there is no reverse gear, as they simply opt for solutions-oriented responses. “Great. What are you going to do about it?” Watch out for implied delegation, It’s often a question without a question mark. No reason to say, Yes” when “No, do it/resolve it yourself,” is the answer. No prob. People in Sales often leave accountability and responsibility in the dust with their lack of a reversed gear in their unaddressed past (detect a bent and a Rantra there? Thanks Karen Sealey for you. Rantra SUCH a great word!). For them, is it then all about, “Ok, what do you propose we do?” Is it all about workability? Don’t know, seems so, seems dead on. Of course certainty can certainly have its own trappings. What do You think/feel?

Digression broached, it seems simple. Simple. The simple of you’re not in trouble. Can you own that? Can you connect with fear, and dispense with the anxiety terrorist trying its best to hijack it? Have you already done so in your wonderfully unique way? Whichever or whatever it is, it’s yours. Can you stand up to that, or HOW do you already stand up to that? Do you stand up to you? Can you give examples? Please comment. I’m certainly not the effin Principal of anyone but myself. This stuff interests me. Understood if no.

The 5th Ace: Death & My Greatest CruxLike the Frog Grown Wings Alchemical painting expressing the process of transformation of the tadpole through to the flier where at every step the caterpillar’s concept of…

And, it was retitled by the Owner to be Flying Frog. I dig that. It’s more resonant with it’s NOW evolved character of where it is in its current life from its original name at its creation, which was of course simply present tense par for the course for me at the time from the Place of Creation.

So, hammering the chords all over the place on the piano that resonate with me to get lost in the feeling of… fear versus anxiety… I stopped playing. Silent. Huffing exhales. I was SO ON! The mountain arose. And, Who are my current and past and historical friends on this? I kneeled to the Google Oracle 😉 lol, and …

When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings. ~ Dean Jackson

‘You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.            ~ Trinus Paulus

The caterpillar turns to liquid before turning into a butterfly. Liquid. Thus washing away any speck of his caterpillar self as he lies completely vulnerable to his environment in his chrysalis shell. One good solid gust of wind and the caterpillar’s boned. ~ Hippie Snowflake Obsidian

A season of loneliness and isolation is when the caterpillar gets its wings. Remember that next time you feel alone.  ~ Mandy Hale

If nothing ever changed, there wold be no such thing as butterflies. ~Wendy Mass

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore

When I thought that my life was already over I became a splendid butterfly. ~ The Caterpillar, author unknown

And, my favorite…

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anais Nin

 

Today, instead of allowing anxiety to kidnap your legitimate fear and torture it into being afraid right in front of you… how can you round your wagons so to speak and protect that sacred sentry that is fear from the constrictor that’s the Anxiety Predator?

I ask for you to entertain for just a moment that anxieties are like hyenas, 4-legged swarmers similar to hornets. One bite or sting won’t take you down, though when you’re covered… and they turn your tide the wrong way after that by continually cornering you with their false logic, when they’re just starving…

Today, how can YOU utilize your fears today as informative, wayfinding allies in the Alchemy of your life?! How can you ask your anxieties what their message is so they give rather than falling prey to their kidnapping taking of your sacred fear?

Thanks much for visiting!

Pssssst. Peering out of the shadows. Yeah, psssst, over here. No, I’m not an anxiety. I’m on the lamb from them. Just wanted to tell ya there’s a treasure in the 6 of Pents link below. Oh, gotta go, they’ve sniffed me out again. No worries. I’m good. ShaZAM!

The Wisdom of the Heartfelt Hierophant

I am resonant as I re-read something that struck chords in me 20 years ago. It stood and still stands as one of my faves, and of course it feels different this time. No longer an Initiate, I initiate myself, feel a new charge cascade in tingles throughout me like when you hear someone sing in just that way that wonderfully waterfalls an ablution inside you.

This time around, my Hermit-Devil character, assemblage of Magician on the Right, Priestess on the Left, this time with them married within me form is again made from the formless. The cairn on the path of this passage is not unconsciously passed by this time with sparkly eyes drunk on wonderment. To clarify, that was a good thing. To enter. To enter from a place inside where reasons are unreasonable. To enter fully, because my I Am must, I had to, and so I did. I had a choice, though I am My Am. I did not bow my sovereignty to Must then. I stepped into the unknown with it bringing in Tarot full force alongside Architecture,Art, Alchemy, Poetry, and Psychology. It may have been one of the most important and courageous things I’ve done. Fears then were simply signs to inform my awareness. Acceptable risk was even off to the side behind me, left somewhere in the dust. Being afraid was like anxiety and worry, a waste of energy. I had plenty of fear, though being afraid was not a quality of them. Being aware in a manner where fear was simply the wise Counsel of Nature, of what was, is, and potentially will be. I entered fully, without a net. I stepped past my own steps.

As I immerse in the fresh discovery of my previous, first footprints that began an important cycle back then, I pause in respectful Silence and cherish the wild intensity of my creativity then. I steep, aware and conscious of this milestone moment of a new cycle, passage into a new orbit. I feel like the serpent maybe does just before it bites its own tail. I live in the meditative moment where the world of the serpent experiences that quark of a millisecond AS it bites its tail, becomes the Uroburos, and disappears Forever to bleed itself out of the serpent, out of the tip of the lead into the circle.

New circles, such as the one I have just had the honor to experience, make all things go ‘round. Awake again, I step more fully into into my previous footsteps, their paired and alive, talismanic artifacts, and stand like a Temple on their unseen stylobate, their fecund made-of-earth foundation. We stand together as I breathe the joy of being refreshed. As we stand together, One, my heartbeat fuels the next evolution, the earth’s presence rises from my feet with their groundgrabber toes up and throughout me, and my future orbits begin to present themselves to come more into focus. I will not describe them now. That would be a disrespectful irritant of a grain of sand, an undue influence to their soft oyster newness. As a Creator, I am deftly familiar with the responsibility to be the rock under which freshly molted ideas hover under my watch as they acclimate to move and make form from the formless. No irritants allowed. No grain of sand. I’m not out to make a pearl. Here, in a new circle, the snake his skin shedded to artifact steps, the snake his skin not missed Moves forward.

Enough about me. Back to the book that transported me above to right here. As I immersed into this book this time, a particular line struck me as one of my favorite assemblies of words to date. It may stand as the most concise and clear statement about creativity and divination that hasn’t lost its heart to the analytical, hasn’t divorced beauty to forsake its heart for a mistress of structure. For sure it’s no skeleton in a biology class used with overt irony as fact to discuss living things. It’s skeleton, it’s structure, is embedded within it like a 4 of Pentacles hidden bridge, and it’s still possibly an invertebrate. I needn’t know that distinction. The snake, his skin not missed resonates throughout with the chords struck by what i will refer to as The Astral of Ancestral Divination, and Forensic Archeological Empathy. No old, desiccated Hermit sitting in a Hierophant throne here. This is the Hierophant, wisdom from experience immersed in the throne of the heartfelt. Enjoy this assembly of words, this quote from someone whose politics in life I firmly do without, whose work I respect and value to the utmost. If it whets your whistle, enjoy!:

Symbolic representation and imagistic writing are the pure hieratic forms of esoteric expression. Through symbolism, and through it alone can we read the thought of the Ancients. It is only through the symbolical that we will be able to coordinate the known elements of this great civilization and that the writing may take on its true meaning.    ~ R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz — The Temple In Manp. 19

 

 

 

May you wake to The Sun of who you are with actionable and clear purpose comfortable with the not-knowing.

Tarot ~ Ostara ~ The Day of the Balanced Dance

PREVIOUS | MASTER LIST | NEXT

Enjoy your Tarot BlogHop for Ostara.

You can hop back to Bonnie Fernandes’ blog or forward to Chloe for TABI’s blog.

Enjoy Your Ostara and every moment equal across the day!  Heck, maybe even allow Moira and your internal sense of time to play in through the spaces between your notes to help you select YOUR natural sense of timing today.

Hi!  Jordan Hoggard here.  A fun and sacred Ostara to You!  Join me along this segment of the Tarot BlogHop as I celebrate resurrection and rebirth in my way…as the one, Trinity Soul heartbeat making the Us in healthy relationships.  So, let’s get to danicin’ shall we?!!

The Day of the Balanced Dance

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing 
and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.
~ Rumi
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful that the risk it took to blossom.
~ Anais Nin
Judgment
Nature’s Dance Hall.  Archetypally perennial resurrection holding space for movement.
Queen of Pentacles
The Event Coordinator master gardening the scene.  A worldly Empress,
Empress
Higher octave Queen of Pentacles.  A Yoniverse carrying things to full term.
9 of Pentacles
The partnering of the dance of an equal day and night day = more clarity for the nuance of cleanly and purely being fully present and conscious and aware to take care with how you reveal and unfold your purity in the present in your life… best expressed by how you dance?   The number 9 expresses a sacred partnership within itself, a divine and continual unfolding AS both its dna AND its mode of being… one and the same.  9 dynamically and simply steps up to the plate fully present and heartfelt as it expresses itself with its internal dance partners:
The double-colon between the numbers ”  ::  ”  =’ing inner partners sacredly embraced naturally, and
09 09 18 27 36 45 :: 54 63 72 81 90
Notice how the partners express one another though are each their own as they dance together…
they do not mirror or project… they flow together like kelp and the ocean…
bring into being one Trinity Soul like the Trinity Soul Seat for the Mind of Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers…
09 18 27 36 45
90 81 72 63 54
Always ask the mind to take a seat.  The heart and soul are healthier leaders.
Hermit
The interstice, the space between and within the dancers.  still in Silence, the full inner activity of the Om 4 charactered voice of the Univers A U M (Silence all around and as the space between the sounds / notes)
The Devil
Sacred Masculine God ~ Goddess as the DJ.  Beyond the canned notions of addiction and inhibition for the Devil there is a field, a place of purity supporting life fully engaging the higher octaves of earthly desires. To live fully in love and in love with one’s betrothed is no chain, no ball and chain.  To live fully in love and in love with one’s betrothed enhances each other’s freedom as they pulse together into being the single heartbeat of the love-warmed Trinity Soul. Each couples’ Us that is entirely their own… and not subject to the notions of others.
So, in the liminal twilight space of Ostara in the dawn between equidistant Janus-to-and-from the dusk both between the night and the day each… while you decide how the above cascades in to resonate or be tossed… for Ostara… feel into this next mini-series of lines…
Reasons are unreasonable in love
Love is a socially acceptable insanity. (author = Amy. I don;t know who that is though I like it immensely)
Lovers love what they love, together… regardless…
Nature doesn’t have to convince me when it’s raining,
and fully the same as Nature,
my love, my dearest love does not have to convince me of her love…
her love as present as the rain,
as fully supportive as the ocean…

Twilight,the magical space of dusk and dawn, the magical spaces between night and day, between day and night.  Twilight dawn, twilight dusk, each day the magical twilight twice.

So, here is a gift of a poem for your Balanced Ostara Dance…

Our Us Is Our Prayer

There comes one
who I know like wind
like rain upon the ocean.
And, as wintertime comes,
and our memories freeze together,
together may we sleep and dream.
So, that come the springtime
as we embrace with open eyes,
may we melt
back together
in warm embrace…
in the Trinity Soul heartbeat
that is Us
in each others’ arms
always.
Amen.

So, put your mind away today.

Today, on Ostara, lead with your heart…

Shall we dance?

[[insert 3 of Cups]]

Here are Your TarotScope Allies for the Oct 27th to Nov 2nd 2013 Week

Scorpio: October 23 to November 21 ~ King of Pentacles

Master Builder, stunningly solid qualities, indomitable

Master Builder, stunningly solid qualities, indomitable

Scorpio, Build your concrete and psychic structures together this week.  Infuse those tangible things you do with Kingly presence in solid ways.  Confidence shouldn’t be an issue this week, so I don’t advise to banter out, “I’m strong” or “I’m confident.”  That’s the surest way to burst that balloon.  I bet your strength and confidence will be clearly evident in your actions if you relax any grousing or Tarzan-talk you’ve been affecting or putting out there somehow.  This week do your gigs with wit and foresight.  Like a King who rarely explains himself.  Also, don’t fall prey to the residual talk that often occurs when you stop saying how strong and confident you are.  Hmmm, what could that be?  Well, asking rhetorical questions to people for one.  Rhetorical questions have a tendency to be a tease at times. They can sure get people thinking, though mind the presumptuous and self-righteous dictate embedded in them.  Engage people with your questions this week and strengthen your positions by being inclusive in evident ways… like building a Kingdom.  A Kingdom is not simply a bunch of people on a hill. That’s more like a beautifully unruly crowd waiting for the band to come on stage… whether there’s a stage present or not.  Stand and deliver this week by solidly taking action, and only take action on those things you have a big YES for.  The other things can be delegated or outright dismissed this week. Oh, and how do you build a Kingdom?  Step 1: pick 4 dreams and integrate deadlines into them like putting shoelaces in shoes.  Step 2: Incorporate those deadlines into your schedule book.  Step 3: Start.  Start to finish.  Have a great week.  You may not wear a watch.  I know I don’t.  Though, buy your dreams each a watch this week so to speak.

Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21 ~ Queen of Wands

fire of life, life-acumen, actively energetic clarity directed to attract wants

fire of life, life-acumen, actively energetic clarity directed to attract wants

Sagittarius, Mind that your vision is both blessed and sacred this week WITH a sense of humor.  With your Queen of Wands presence odds are people are going to be enthused to hear the guidance of what you have to say and contribute. Queens are natural leaders.  They have the rockin’ position of being able to witness everything from the side.  They can see the reactions, feel the responses, and sense the things going unsaid from this position while others take the podium.  Play that actively Powerful Witness this week.  You may begin to notice things that are very evident though that you have been missing.  This will be a week of opening your eyes to those missing pieces that are being offered to you.  Don’t turn your eyes to the loudest barking dog in the group.  Look around this week.  Play the swivel-head perception game.  Simply feel into your surroundings.  Feel near and feel your senses cascading out far.  The Queen of Wands would be one to instantly deflate a blustering idiot trying to take over a meeting just to be in power.  For example: if someone riles up and directly says to someone, “There is no I IN TEAM!”  Calmly lean forward and, “You’re right. Glad you can spell.  There is no U in team. Now, sit down or there will be no U in this team,” and proceed to right the keel of the meeting back on topic in effective ways.  You may not have to play referee this week, though be prepared to speak from your vantage point of Powerful Witness.  People are going to be enthused to hear the guidance of what you have to say and contribute this week.  Don’t reason with idiocy this week.  A simple nod of the head side to side with a, “No no no no on that…not a chance.”  This week reasons can be unreasonable.  Use the natural authority of how you engage with body language, how you use your face and mouth and eyebrows, how you highlight your non-verbals so their presence in silence is extended.  This week use the natural conversation of how you engage and communicate with body language.  Your presence will go far beyond your spoken words this week.  Use it to your advantage with fewer words to brings others more fully to the table to contribute.

Capricorn: December 22 to January 19 ~ Ace of Cups

trust intuition, nurture love, fresh ideas, fluid new passionate starts

trust intuition, nurture love, fresh ideas, fluid new passionate starts

Capricorn, Open up to new life this week.  Trust your intuition as new ways to feel things are coming into play for you.  Keep things light and fresh throughout the week, and make sure to hydrate hydrate hydrate.  Enjoy yourself as you flow around and make sure that everything is kept fresh and ready.  Nip clutter in the bud so new ways of feeling things have the opportunity to come in without being diluted to fit things already in place.  Enjoying yourself this week will especially brighten your work and the attitude of those around you.  They may even find it smilingly contagious and infect someone else. The brightness of this overall environmental attitude may begin to shed light on things that will enhance the overall by bringing hidden details into play directly.  Treat each person you encounter this week as if they have something new to say.  Remember, too, that seeing the good in everyone is great, and it can also mean that you smile realizing that some people are really good at being jerks.  Let ’em be.  Not your prob.  Though let them nowhere near your cup or the bright and flowing cup of those around you.  This week may be a big ole tall glass of water for you.  Hydrate.  Drink up and spread the wealth across your week.  It looks like you are in a great position to notice something everyone else is missing.  Act on it this week.

Aquarius: January 20 to February 18 ~ 6 of Wands

victory, glory, overcoming obstacles so new energies cascade in

victory, glory, overcoming obstacles so new energies cascade in

Aquarius, Raise your head and hands high in a big and smiling stretch of receiving as you start this week.  There feels to be an epic exchange of energies cascading in, and this week don’t be too modest about receiving.  Reach up.  Reach out.  Receive and simply smile and say thank you.  It’s a great gift to others when you don’t go all talky talky talky when receiving things.  It can actually trample all over their smile with a 4-wheel drive of gushing words.  Receive. Take it in and feel what you have been given. Look up and smile.  Say thank you… and that’s it… well, hugs are cool, too.  This week is about getting more comfortable with receiving energies and glory.  Don’t cop a false sense of Betty Boop Infinity Foot and “Ahhhhh” kind of thing.  Jump up and down.  Dance around. Do any number of things, though across this week play with the exercise of only saying “Thank You” without then gushing any number of confession afterwards.  Just say “thank you.”  Too many words slaps the gifter in the face by telling them they were wrong to think you were deserving because you are trying to justify receiving…which comes across as that you don’t want it because you think you don’t deserve it.  Don’t play it safe this week, and certainly don’t play the bird with the broken wing..  Receiving is a huge gift to those who give to you.  Positively embrace that this week.  Positively embrace the gifts you receive with full-hearted thanks.  Remember, it’s o.k. to toot your own horn, or have someone toot your as a gift… somebody has to start the band.  This week practice the volume of a smile and those two little words, “Thank You.”  Oh, and it’s of course ok to still share.  Don’t get me wrong.  Then of course flip those two words to “You’re welcome.”…again, please without the over-sharing TMI gushing…  Make this week a great week of exchange.

Thank You, Aquarius.  You’re welcome… to feel what you feel.

Pisces: February 19 to March 20 ~ XVII The Star

cosmic grooves, eternal hope, inspiration, a lit candle is a star from beyond seen up close...do some candle gazing

cosmic grooves, eternal hope, inspiration, a lit candle is a star from beyond seen up close…do some candle gazing

Pisces, Keep your imagination near and dear this week.  Visualize your imagination as a candle, and visualize that candle as a star seen close up.  Allow the dance of these visualizations of your imagination to be as mesmerizing as candle gazing, and at the same time as far-seeing as looking at a star.  Shooting stars may be especially of interest to you like your idea-apples ripe and falling off the tree right into your lap.  Keep your imagination in its natural so big and so there way this week so that “way far away” may feel like you can just reach out and touch it.  Reach out and touch your eternal hopes and dreams this week.  Check in with them and take steps to embrace them further.  This week is a great time to  feel your bright hop shine in the wonderfully dark depths of the inner night of your imagination.  If your cosmic groove comes upon you by surprise, go with it!  The inner stars of the ideas orbiting in your Imagination Solar System this week have the potential to guide you as clearly as an experienced ship’s Captain navigates by the stars at night.  This week feel the gift in that.  Feel the gift of a renewed sense of direction that guides you through thick and thin, day and night, full-on confidence and being comfortable with the not-knowing.  This week navigate by the stars.  Navigate your week by the stars in the sky as they inspire the stars within you.

Aries: March 21 to April 19 ~ VIII Justice

balance, befitting, honest is-what-it-isness, Justice knows no loyalty

balance, befitting, honest is-what-it-isness, Justice knows no loyalty

Aries, This week explore the concept of “Justice knows no loyalty” (c) 2013 Jordan Hoggard.  Seriously. Think about when someone crosses a friend or family member and you back them up, period, regardless.  Well, this week I am not telling you to stop supporting your friends and family, though step back a sec and get perspective first.  Do this as well with the things you are most passionate about.  Take Simon Cowell type comments constructively and with a smile and see the bigger picture.  Just because someone has always been able to be counted on, this week keep a keen Magistrate’s eye on the proceedings throughout your week.  No need to be punitive to any party. Simply settle in and powerfully witness what is going on.  You may begin to see how something you have supported is actually the cause of continued problems popping up.  It may be in a blind spot caused by your expectations and assumptions.  Again, no need to be punitive.  Though, this week when you step forward to speak, do so in an inclusive manner that addresses the whole situation rather than any party individually.  It is like Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido, expressed: “Focusing too much on either the good or the bad in a situation or in a person makes an opening for maliciousness.”  Focus too much on the good, and you run the risk of favoritism which can potentially weaken the resolve of the one you compliment if they look up to you.  They might relax their drive at the wrong time.  Focus too much on the bad, and you run the risk of stirring hornet’s nests you needn’t even be near.  This week realize that focusing too much on the good can breed maliciousness out of a kind of omission, and focusing too much on the bad can create a direct maliciousness that is openly adversarial.  Play with “Justice knows no loyalty” this week so you discern and act upon what is happening rather than your pre-ordained sense of teams.  You yourself may run the risk of enhancing the effectiveness of how you discern things this week.  And, that’s a risk I’d be willing to take.  Enhancing the effectiveness of how you discern things is a good problem to have.

Taurus: April 20 to May 20 ~ King of Cups

supportive, inner prosperity, meaningful conversations, clarity with higher octave emotions

supportive, inner prosperity, meaningful conversations, clarity with higher octave emotions

Taurus, This week explore how you are a protective figure of abundance to someone and / or a group of people or a cause that you support.  Rather than being a guide that shows the path, this week simply be supportive and protective of those things you value.  Don’t expect too much assistance from Aries up there as you’re on the ground this week and they have an altogether different suggested mode of being this week.  Be a friend and companion this week.  You may find your abilities to inspire others through simple conversation to be the best expression of your abundant energy.  This week is a grand time to have or plan a big get-together and flow wonderfully through conversation with those around you.  Be they small or large in regards to your environment, strongly flow with those you care about this week.  Support and protect rather than guide.  Shine in the joyousness of groups you cherish… or, that are just plain fun!  Have or plan that get-together or office party this week to set the Kingly stage where peoples’ abilities are given a place to brightly shine in conversation.  Utilize your full love and attention to magnetically draw wonderful things together this week.  There’s a bit of rockin’ Wand-y energy there, though I hear the King of Cups and the King of Wands are fishing buddies.  Use that.  This week Your Royal Court, hosted by Your King of Cups, has a grand opportunity to bring people together in higher octave ways from the most mundane of methods… a get-together.  Have fun with the invitation this week even if it is simply an invitation from you to yourself to get more together with you as your own figure of protection and abundance..

Gemini: May 21 – June 20 ~ 4 of Pentacles

Allow the ground you walk on to be as inspirational as the stars in your sky

Allow the ground you walk on to be as inspirational as the stars in your sky

Gemini,  This week allow the ground you walk on to be as inspirational as the stars in your sky.  Sound cool though like hocus pocus?  Nah, is there something important to you that you planted a ways back that somehow made it to the back burner and then slipped out of view?  Take a scenic overlook pause in your life across this week to see what you started that really meant something to you and that somehow got away from the manifesting focus of your actions.  Tap tap tap those little ground-grabbers of your toes.  Did it really go so far?  Or, did somehow your forgetting allow it to run in the back and grow underground where your forgetting has become a “for getting”?  What’s that?!  That forgetting thing?  Well, forgetting can be for getting. It has a tendency to make more room for the good stuff.  This week look to how you have somehow, almost unconsciously, come back around to fertile ground where you can pick that important thing back up to be re-embraced and furthered.  It may require just a little digging on your part, though I bet that this week will open up something near and dear to you for you to solidly work on again.  Your link is a short short video this week.  So, tune in and see where it takes you.  This week, the wager that you are right where you need to be is a good one. Nevermind the odds.  Look down while you are walking this week… while being mindful of where you are walking of course.  Is there treasure to be found along your path?  Don’t miss connecting with what your feet touch this week.  Each step can sew a powerful connection.  Let your feet sew your week together this week and you might just become quite impressed with how the apparel of your surroundings begins to fit even to the point of bringing your environment to feel like sacred adornment.

Cancer: June 21 – July 22 ~ Knight of Wands

unfamiliar actions, strangely highlighted energies in feelings, awakening, regally emerging anew in playful ways

unfamiliar actions, strangely highlighted energies in feelings, awakening, regally emerging anew in playful ways

Cancer, This week be mindful if you pause with too great an emphasis on spiritual matters and un-reflected actions, actions that were performed to no avail.  This pause may simply be a natural response to you being in unfamiliar places or having unfamiliar feelings.  You may feel a bit unsettled this week feeling that you don;t really know what to do in things you do often, though get a handle on that.  Are you in fact simply in a new place where things are evolving and refreshing themselves?  Are you in fact simply having unfamiliar feelings?  Keep up with this natural upgrade.  You may be experiencing an awakening in which case those feelings are full-on par for the course.  Look around.  Feel within.  Have you opened to a whole new and larger mode of yourself?  Have you opened up like an adult birth where more of yourself was just simply revealed to you?  If so, take it in and explore it with the bright-eyed-no-words of a child rapt with curiosity.  No feelings of awakening this week?  Cool.  Either way, notice the house cracking open in the card.  It is not hard to mend damage.  It expresses the beauty of cracks and fissures opening up to UN-pave the way for new things to come through.  This week notice potential opportunities in your scene.  Every crack a door.  Every opening a window.  And, dance with the action-reaction of doors opening and closing magnetically causing new ones to do the same.  Halloween and haunted houses are coming up soon, so please do be mindful of doors doing things by themselves, so that wicked cool pranks don’t mess with your focus this week.  This is a week to give fresh eyes to just about everything.  No need to do the baby-out-with-the-bath-water thing to clean and clear house. Simply clean and clear.  Allow your fresh eyes to refresh the way things function and nurture you in your scene.  This week allow your fresh eyes to direct and gift big breaths of fresh air to the things you are working on.  Heck, if it’s warm, get a nice breeze moving through your house to hatch out any muckity-muck to the outside.

Leo: July 23 to August 22 ~ XIX The Sun

who you were when you were born, Self, return, identity, bright success in context

who you were when you were born, Self, return, identity, bright success in context

Leo, This week the light of your natural truth and purpose are pulsing more brightly.  Be mindful not to get too strict on what you allow to affect you this week.  In fact you might want to relax a bit.  You might shine more not holding on so hard.  As Oscar Wilde aptly put, “truth is the most impure thing.”  I take his meaning to be that truth is born of the wonderfully messy experience of life.  Truth as experience?  Now, that I can buy because it blows out my own personal old joke of “Do not entrust truth or love to philosophers.”  At 4 am in the morning after talking for hours and still in the middle of their first sentence you might come to the realization that, “No, they are not going to solve the world’s problems, and really are just avoiding asking that person out that they are attracted to. lol”  “Truth is the most impure thing” ~ Oscar Wilde ~ is a great mantra for this week.  Step up to really experience your experience.  Work the mix.  Live this week your way as much as possible as if it is bought and paid for and earning equity and interests you… as, this week, I imagine it will be.  Look for the diamond in the rough.  Look for the blessing in disguise.  Look past the mirages of the blind spots of your expectations this week.  Your bright light should illuminate what is behind them.  Go ahead and invite those shadow dancers seen through the screen onto the main stage for your viewing pleasure.  Mix with them.  With this Oscar Wilde gig about truth I am really digging that truth is dirty and messy and probably loads of fun.  Think about it.  Telling the truth sometimes opens up situations more fully rather than stepping them down to make them more bland.  Oh, and let your light shine on this statement for a few moments… “Trust is rarely brought up unless distrust is present.”  See through the code of that to get to the heart of the matter of things this week… as this week the light of your natural truth and purpose are pulsing more brightly… brightly in ways you can use to open up more experiential truth in situations.  Oh, and this week to go along with Wilde’s “Truth is the most impure thing,” keep in mind Mark Twain’s, “Of course truth is stranger than fiction, Man.  Fiction has to make sense.”  Open up more to experience itself AS truth in situations this week.

Virgo: August 23 to September 22 ~ 9 of Swords

nearing completions, dynamism moving out of  communication plateau(s)

nearing completions, dynamism moving out of communication plateau(s)

Virgo, This week your thoughts and ideas will be as dynamic as ever, though be on the lookout for another plateau coming up where you can expand this dynamism and really give it the room to breath that it deserves.  There may be some false summits that catch your eye this week.  Look at them, notice them in the distance, though realize these false summits as pie in the sky horizons.  You can dynamically expand with this 9 right whee you are.  Your immediate horizons, the ones you can touch are trail-markers and trail heads calling to you to send your ideas off into them.  Allow your ideas to play as if all on their own as you work on the big-picture ground for them to thrive.  You are coming towards a big completion in your thinking, though be more mindful of where you are than of that.  Distraction feels to be coming at you this week from all directions.  I’d just say that this indicates that what you are doing interests people, and they all come running to be first in line.  Orchestrate and schedule.  Orchestrate and schedule on your terms so the onset of all these things interested in your work is utilized by you as tangible interest rather than chaos to distract your dynamism.  Visualize your experience AS the situation this week so you stay on track with what you are doing.  It may not be a big week of completions, though just as much so it is not a big week to second-guess the dynamism of things going on in your work, either.  Notice a word over-used here?  Dynamism?  Dynamic?  Well, Dyn-O-MITE to THAT!  Keep the air fresh this week so things moving in a frenzy can keep moving that way and not crash into each other bring one another down.  Air traffic control is the suggested mantra for you this week, though mind that your desk and controls in the tower easily accessible so that you don’t get in your own way.  Work on the big-picture this week.  Make sure you get the ground prepared so your ideas to have a place to thrive as they each come back and ask for instructions as to where to land.

Libra: September 23 to October 22 ~ X The Wheel

epochal-cycle, Om--Libra-ohm punning,  complete cycles, full orbits, luck

epochal-cycle, Om–Libra-ohm punning, complete cycles, full orbits, luck

Libra, Enjoy your luck and your big ideas in a big way this week.  It is similar to your work and ideas having an anniversary or birthday party.  Open up to see your scene anew as you complete things.  Play the big and pregnant pause of commencement AS a component to complete.  Do not just jump right into new things this week.  Respect the things you have done by directing them to the proper seats to graduate and move on.  New things are coming in strongly, and you may feel like you need to welcome them, too.  Don’t get distracted by that this week, though.  That’s simply your next class of ideas and work enrolling so to speak.  Don;t open a new epoch of work until you celebrate with the work you have just spent so much time completing… and, take your time doing so.  The next steps into the next phase will be new, and you will serve yourself best by making sure you are like new, too, by being refreshed and ready.  Place yourself where you want to be and flow naturally and take a few moments each day to experience how far you’ve come.  Enjoy things that are present in a wonderful variety of ways.  Right now and this week, simply enjoy things and be amazed how many cool things have come together.  The Wheel’s perspective itself may be, “My BIGGEST love is when you complete something and it refreshes your perspective!  Return here to refresh when you feel different in a familiar place.”  If you know of any Cancer signs, you might want to lend a hand in regards to getting perspective as they are in a similar boat, simply at a different scale.  “Review” is the mantra for this week. Review and… ok, a little planning won’t hurt.  Celebrate your completions this week to prepare and make room for new things coming your way.
