Tarot Twos To Pair: Birth Cards

“Twos To Pair” Video Transcript:

Hi… Jordan Hoggard, author of Tarot in the Land of Mystereum here to explore pairings and contrasts with the family of the Twos . . .

… Numerically the Twos correspond with Judgment…Strength (or Justice if you run eleven that way in your use of Tarot card sequencing)…and The High Priestess of the Major Arcana.  You can explore the relationships of these numbers further in my blog . . .  So, let’s explore pairings and contrasts with the Twos. . .

With the Two of Pentacles: Sense the most crucial connections, the most vital yet potentially minute connective tissue present. . .and with this an ability to cascade verdantly throughout from subtlety to entirety, a Priority FedEx of influence. . .Visualize a direct connection between your feet and toes and your imagination and ideas.

With the Two of Cups: feel heartfelt cooperation, and with bright eyes smile as fresh ideas pulsing with life begin to play in your imagination.

With the Two of Wands: Discern and distinguish individual energies from one another.  Note how they interact.  As you do, mind overload and imbalance by not perceiving many little things as one big thing.  Respecting the energies you distinguish by naming them, as you focus each one by its name, identify and pair them with the aim of their influence.

With the Two of Swords: Gift yourself the ability to focus on familiar things to see them differently, in a new and polished light.   One of the vital lessons from the 2 of Swords. . .highlight object of your focus, Mind your focus to communicate content more clearly, rather than assuming and expecting. . . sense and communicate things anew, even familiar things, sense and communicate things more congruent with their identity.

So, a vital yet open-ended overall lesson from the Twos is about pairing and contrasting the whole family of Twos in your way to inform one another as they come up individually. . . you are better able to see familiar things differently..

Thank you for watching.  I look forward to further touring you through the families living in the Land of Mystereum.

Birth-Placing Identity ~ The Nines


Tarot Birth Identities: The Nines + a Birth Card Finale!

Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise and hopefully invigorating walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to your identity.  Also, I will layer in my concept of Birth Card Preludes to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short statement.

I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, are best stated as catalysts, as triggers to remind one how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of each Birth Card combo into a single, incorporated and integrated voice.  Enjoy finding your own path with my Prelude versions of Birth Card Groupings.

I look forward to hearing your own, personal catalyst and trigger Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of them.  Have fun with ’em!  Whether you post yours here or not when you craft your own, as they can be great tools for you, personally, and no-one else, my wish is that this blog series promotes you in your own way to shine in the way only you do . . . like The Sun.

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like the upcoming Nines Invigorate video on my YouTube channel.  9’s video to be released in the near future. Please enjoy the other videos in the interim, and full-on share them if you dig ’em. Thanks Mucho when you do!  Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana and Courts in the videos.

Also, again, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for your Tarot Birth Cards, the Aces through the Tens, and as well the Royal Court characters to enhance, reinforce, and strengthen your own Birth-Placing Identity set.  In The Land of Mystereum the Courts present themselves as Your Royal Courts . . . so, enjoy taking ownership of your Tarot Birth Cards in YOUR own way as a great step to further establish your Inner Royal Sovereignty!  I hope this blog series can provide a vital step for you in that way!

So, let’s get started with the Nines in from a Land of Mystereum perspective, shall we?

THE MOON -~THE HERMIT
XVIII ~ IX  ::  18 ~ 9
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 9, and thus correspond with the Nines in general, and the upcoming Nines Invigorate video on my YouTube Channel.
9’s Birth Card Prelude: With The Moon ~ The Hermit as your Birth Cards you may often experience a naturally aware and awakened inner and outer reflection connecting you to unseen places.

How does this simple Prelude statement express the 2 characters as facets of one in your personality?
The Hermit ~ Do you often experience a naturally aware and awakened inner and outer?
The Moon ~ Do you reflect to connect yourself to unseen places. (like the moon reflecting the unseen [identity of the] sun  . . . which of course beautifully comes next in the Majors.

~ Notice the cross-over overlappage in the mixed order of the single, integrated Prelude statement that can be gifted by the 2 cards working together.  Integration in these kinds of Prelude statements may very well indicate that things are rarely simply put in line like dominoes disconnected, working together(?), and as well also set to fall.  Maybe not linear.  Then again. . . In the Prelude The Hermit gifts his portion to the 1st part of the statement asThe Moon chimes in to reflect the 2nd part.

With integration of concepts imaginatively, things are incorporated, integrated, like a well-made 3-day rue is folded into and simmered into a gumbo.  Certainly not two things once served up.  The 2 portions mix and blend and contribute inter-locking strengths to enhance and bring about the creation of something different than the two separate characters.  Something new made by teaming things up this way.  Maybe as well that is how metaphor is made . . . like the French Surrealists of Paul Eluard or Andre Breton expressing, The world is blue, like an orange — attribution conflicted, so, if you know differently, pease chime in in the comment.  Two things put together in an integrated way that in short-form tell a new story that is expansive.

Sidebar questions for your Inner LunaTic to ponder with your Hermit: Does The Fool live on The Moon? Sure looks that way. Or, does The Fool just jaunt there to get a more robust perspective in support of unknown, sacred ground rising up to support every footstep on new paths? Is The Moon The Fool’s trailhead cairn?

With The Moon ~ The Hermit, I suggest to ask the question, “What new quality is revealed in my personality each time things team up and are incorporated this way?”  Visualize making a souflle.  The eggs whites are folded in in 2 stages.  They are incorporated across the process.  I suggest to think about this in just that way.  Hungry yet?  I certainly am. What about this?  Portabella Polenta Souflle with Mediterranean rice and a bruschetta? . . . that oughta do it, and maybe leave one of the 3 as ‘WOW, I am full . .n rockin’ leftovers tomorrow.  Do Birth-Placing Identities of Preludes work that way? Let me know in the comments.

Back in to these cards, specifically.  YOUR cards if these are Your Birth Card paring.

~ The Moon indicates a natural reflection, the inner industry of identity of la luna, The Moon, your Inner LunaTic, unlit as hiding in plain sight always there . . . to influence constant reflection?  To reflect in Your own way, like the moon does the sun? How does this inter-relationship work for you!

~ The Hermit is a light insightfully reflected forward while at one and the same time peering into and illuninating and utilizing the chthonic darkness, maybe living in both at one and the same time like a Chthonic Numinosity =’ing Self? In the moment he steps into the steps he first embossed into the ground at each cycle?

The Fisherman in Ernest Hemingway’s Old Man and the Sea might just be this.  Or, Jung’s expression of the ichthios, the glowing-eyed fish yanked from the deep.  Something tells me that Harold in Harold and the Purple Crayon is a Moon ~ Hermit character unfettered by any reason other than to live and act wisely with his own vibrance in time, cycles of experience integrated whether they have been experienced or not.

Doesn’t that indicate imagination at its heart?  Inner inheritances as expressed in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum brings to mind, From the mouth of babes.  And, I am not talking about the annual Sports Illustrated issue or Maxim or insert your own rockin’ visual rag issue cover. Though, thinking about that that was harsh. Include those, too. Your call.

The Moon card can represent your Outer Expression.  This is how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Moon card is known for its ability to reflect light from unseen sources as it influences your feelings constantly like the moon.  Get past the barrage to what YOU resonate with?  With The Moon card representing your Outer Expression experience the filters with which you influence your world. These are of primary importance.  Know that your cycles may move in a faster gear like the moon’s direct movement through and to and continually across the astrological signs of the zodiac.

Keep sight of shifting with your cycles as you do being conscientious with the not-knowing wise in time.  Your sense of meaning may poignantly and effectively occur simply in your each and every act, in your direct and actionable expressions not so much in need of explanation.  You may naturally cycle through the personalities of your ideas on a daily basis, even shifting your mode idea to idea with as much versatility as the moon influences each astrological sign as it continually moves through them.  Self-influencing itself where it is via its reflections?

Rather than reasons being unreasonable with The Moon, you may simply, naturally act in the living of your life.  You may naturally act wise in time as directly as the moon continues its orbit.  Shift and corner and enhance and reinforce and strengthen the quality of your versatile ability to perform.  May I suggest to look into keeping track of the Void Of Course cycles of the moon?  To start things with a distinct sense of them?  You may be as agile in your moods as you are in your motion, especially when they tango together.

It is pretty Mercurial to be as agile in your moods as your motion. Where’s Mercury in your Natal Chart  Visualize the substance of Mercury.  The alchemists did.  It is metal . . . that flows . . . at room temperature of course. And, is poisonous at uncut levels. Does that depend on the room, the People In The Room Astrology of your chart with continually modifying transits?

I would not advise touching mercury in any way, though, other than visualizing it or empathising with its qualities.  You probably already knew that, though Mercury in your chart can be bountiful. What does is conjunct, oppose, quincunxes, square trine, sextillion? And, just where is it, initially, in your Natal Chart? That in itself may nourish your Tarot Birth Cards.

The Hermit can represent your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends may ‘see’. The Hermit as your Inner Expression can symbolize that you have an active and reflective inner light that leads your way.  You have a natural and thoughtful ability to illuminate mysteries as you mind and develop yourself, literally aware in minding yourself.  In some cards The Hermit sees his/her footsteps, aware and noticing the current placement in a familiar place.

And, this awareness of both completed cycles AND an integration with current cycles, sometimes quite a Tower set of interrogations tensions is set up internally, and replacement that I will call integrative experience, may well be a chief feature of The Hermit’s ability to see familiar things in a new light.  To see and utilize familiar things differently, each time in a refreshing way that promotes vitality like dead-heading flowers in a garden.  With The Hermit your illumination emanates from your experiences as your continual mastery and awareness of placement leads you to further discoveries.

“Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer” provides Imagination Tools to re-focus the emotional refraction of anxiety, to enhance and reinforce and strengthen your activities in just YOUR way!  Try it and see. Take a look.

And, back to the order of this blog, your The Moon ~ The Hermit Birth Cards, and Birth-Placing your identity.

To put The Moon and The Hermit back together again into an Exalted Prelude or an Evolved Prelude = minus card names: You may often experience a naturally aware and awakened inner and outer reflection connecting you to unseen places.  Note that the cards are intentionally not mentioned in this second Prelude statement which I call an Exalted or Evolved Prelude. They are not really missing, though.  Are they simply and vitally present in the statement like the color of your eyes relative to you?

Are they embedded and contributory features? Or, is an Exalted Prelude, an Evolved Prelude what you come up with when you utilize the cards as counsel, and then make your own decision about how they work together?  . . . like in a reading! . . . where it becomes not a “they told me. . . ,” but a statement of your own that you supports you?  Your client? I feel an Exalted/Evolved Prelude has cut the strings, has unlocked the docking clamps like on Star Trek.

You can feel the float, or, hear your inner Jean Luc Picard with a confident finger uplifted to direct, say, “enGAGE!”  Exalt yourself  Evolve yourself!  This is a place where arrogance is often seen as ancillary and relatively useless.  Smiles are rockin’!  I often wonder if confidence without even a whiff of arrogance . . . is that another way to say someone is clearly having fun?  Hmmm . . . and maybe like a lion or tiger . . . expert skill can be naturally masked in play?

I hope you have enjoyed this The Moon ~ The Hermit Birth Card Identity Blog, and find it useful in your process as you further explore and enhance and express your own, personal Tarot voice!  “Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer” is all about your life-long process to continually emancipate your Tarot voice in YOUR way.  Teachers are rockin’, gurus not so much, at least from my point of view.  I remember in a meeting someone telling me there was no “I” in team. They were simply frustrated in general so I smiled silently thinking, *maybe their lunch burrito wasn’t sitting so well?  Problems at home? Elsewhere?*  I had to laugh, though, when then I chimed in right after, “Yup and there’s no U, either.” There is certainly U in gurU, though, YOU kinda “U”.  Oops. 9s are dynamic and fluid and keep going and going. So, the EverReady Bunny says keep going…

With your naturally aware and awakened Hermit ~ Moon Inner and Outer Expressions connecting you to unseen places . . . you may well know how much we are each created in the image of . . .  and consequently each HAVE the face of . . . and further that you are your only ruler in the face of . . . YOU!

Hmmm, ever heard of the book “Animal Speak” by Ted Andrews?  Great book!  I highly recommend it to layer in another facet to your daily life and as well to flesh out the experience of animals you come across.  I encourage you to experience them as totems, as living Oracle cards as they cross your path, as they enter and populate and pass through your experience . . . like the inner inheritance your were born with of your Birth Cards!  May animals enter your experience as companions, simply for a while, or just wonderfully passing through and saying, “Hi”, as they lend their personality, their story, to your story.  May your Birth Cards enter your experience.

But, thinking about “Animal Speak” and your natural inner and outer reflection that connects you to unseen places . . .that just gave me an idea!  With your Moon ~ Hermit dynamic duo . . . Are you your own living totem or are you unseen to yourself?  Do you exalt yourself without arrogance for your highest good?  Do you smile in darkness?  What happens when you securely place your natural Moon ~ Hermit to live as your own totem?  Does it accentuate you to activate your highest good?  If so, what do you do with that?  What would then occur when there is a You-sighting?  What would you like to happen when there is a You-sighting?

Thanks for your valuable time.  Much appreciated.  If this article freed you up to be more YOU in ways that only you can be like The Sun, I am thankful.

And, towards closing again of this Tarot in the Land of Mystereum style exploration of your Tarot Birth Cards, to discover and experience through the process of Birth-Placing your identity, I would like to extend a precis, a synopsis of these 9 Birth-Placing Identity with Preludes blogs for you.  Here is a Prelude section for Birth Card personalities, for Birth-Placing your identity.  I call these Preludes the integrated, individual personality of each Birth Card set as I feel they provide a bearing, an informed direction, to simply synopsize and provide triggers for Birth Card Groupings as personalities.

In each form they are placed in their respective locations throughout this blog series as whole Birth Card expressions, but I place the Birth Card Preludes here again, afterwards, as I feel they provide stronger triggers once you know the more fleshed out expressions above.  Enjoy grouping them in any way that you feel that they strike chords that best resonate with you, with you in your naturally enjoyable voice, in whatever place you are.  And, I encourage you to craft your own Birth-Placing Birth Card Preludes from what resonates from Mystereum and / or your fave deck!

THE Preludes of the personality of your Birth Card Set: some subtly different than presented before, as their adjectives and movement mod & fluctuate like the tides here and there as they live and move . . . like the versatile You?! Hmmmm… The Versatile Tarot. Is that. New dec to be created?

The Moon ~ The Hermit as your Birth Cards you may often experience a naturally aware and awakened inner and outer reflection connecting you to unseen places.
If this blog strikes chords that resonate with you, I encourage you to pass it along and spread the word. Share at will~  &, Jean Luc responds from Data’s research foray . . . ,”Engage SHARE!”  Thanks mucho for your support!

Eights: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Eights

Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to identity.  Also, I will layer in Birth Card Preludes to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short statement.  I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, are best stated as triggers to remind one how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of a Birth Card combo in a single voice.  Enjoy finding your own path with these, and I look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of them.  Have fun with ’em!

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like the upcoming Eights Elevate & Exalt video on my YouTube channel . Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana and Courts in the videos. Also, again, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well the Royal Court characters. In The Land of Mystereum the Courts are Your Royal Courts . . . so enjoy taking ownership of your Tarot Birth Cards in YOUR own way!

So, let’s get started with the Eights Land of Mystereum-style, shall we?

THE STAR ~ STRENGTH
XVII ~ VIII  ::  17 ~ 8
Note that Justice is VIII in Mystereum with Strength as XI. So, you may find that a STAR ~ JUSTICE pairing fits you more personally. It all depends on how you roll with YOUR Tarot sequencing.  Lots of hullaballoo around VIII & XI, 8 & 11 in Tarot discussions . . . some good, some great, some not-so much.  Some say one system is older and therefore sets a precedent.  Others say oh NO that canNOT BE!  Oh well. I will simply let the karma run over the dogma on that. In Mystereum it’ll ALL depend on which way strikes a chord to resonate with you.  Might I suggest to be just as aware of a prover as you are of what they are proving?

Depending, some reasons may be unreasonable, and some people make too much sense to argue with . . . even when they make that much sense and are SO on the other side of the universe about an idea. . . or, maybe that simply me.  Anyway, my li’l diplomatic rant’ll end there 😀   I look forward to express THE STAR ~ JUSTICE as a pairing in a future blog.  Here I will express the Star ~ Strength Birth Card Grouping . . . and that in itself should settle any tizzies down that are going on about which is which, at least maybe long enough to read this blog? . . . as I mentioned up there, Justice is VIII, 8 in Mystereum . . . but, my nod here the other way in no way says GOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! like on Soccer TV for either. I simply made a decision to play a different station today.  Hopefully FM in stereo. . . or a really high quality 8-track of Willie & Waylon.  Shotgun Willie!

OK, pipes blown out, let’s REALLY get started with the Eights Birth Card Grouping Land of Mystereum-style.

THE STAR ~ STRENGTH
XVII ~ VIII  ::  17 ~ 8
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 8, and thus correspond with the Eights in general, and the (upcoming) Eights Elevate & Exalt video on my ‘Jordan & The Land of Mystereum’ YouTube Channel .

8’s Birth Card Prelude: With The Star ~ Strength as your Birth Cards you may often experience the clear strength of your own natural, inner animal in your voice that brings you wits and eternal hope as you continually find your cosmic groove and go for it.

See how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 characters as facets of one personality?

~ Strength ~ you may often experience the clear strength of your own natural, inner animal in your voice that brings you wits

~ The Star ~ and eternal hope as you continually find your cosmic groove and go for it.

~ Notice the cross-over overlappage in the mixed order of the single, integrated Prelude statement that can be gifted by the 2 cards.  Integration in these kinds of Prelude statements may very well indicate that things are rarely simply put in line like dominoes disconnected yet set to fall.  With integration of concepts imaginatively, things are incorporated, incorporated like a well-made 3-day rue is folded into and simmered into a gumbo.  Certainly not two things once served up.  They mix and blend and contribute inter-locking strengths.  Is something new made by teaming things up this way? Maybe as well that is how metaphor is made . . . like Paul Eluard expressing (often attributed to Andre Breton), The world is blue, like an orange. 

~ Strength as indicating not to tame the beast, but control of one’s natural, inner animal? One’s instincts utilized as easily as speaking? The power of voice? That if you unsync with your own inner animal you . . . (insert “when Animals Attack” graphic)?

~ The Star as light traveling across eternity to reach you at every moment? To blink and wink at you? Hope in the dark? The black spot on a yin-yang symbol is more than just a beauty mark.  The white dot?

The Star card can represent your Outer Expression.  This is how most people may ‘see’ you in the world.  The Star card is known for its ability to show you your resonant, celestial groove and the eternal hope that drives you to chime in and follow it. With the Star card as your Outer Expression maybe you are represented by the the cosmic ways you direct yourself.  Know that hope is eternal.  Keep sight of that to dispense with anxiety altogether.  Is anxiety emotional refraction?  The Star smoking hope, illusory?  Hmm, Hope doesn’t grow in the dirt. The Star doesn’t suggest to smoke hope, the narcotic of hope. The Star has faith in dreams. 3 Doors Down for some dreams, anyone? Here without you, The Star, even when the only light in the sky, is never alone. At least very least it is immersed in the wonderful depths of it expansive Shadow all around it giving context. How do YOU swim and immerse in what is all around you. Like The Sun, you are also The Star in your life. Invest in yourself. I hear it lasts a lifetime. ~ unknown.

Falling in love with yourself doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible. ~ Unknown

Being self-centered doesn’t necessarily make you vain or snooty. It simply indicates you are centered. And, the center isn’t necessarily in the middle. ~ Jordan Hoggard

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks inside awakens. ~ Carl Jung

010.1 CtC copy

Strength can represent your Inner Expression.  This may be a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’. Strength as your Inner Expression may symbolize that you have a natural power to tune both your voice and your silences.  Is your voice like music and the space between the notes silence, both beautifully orchestrated together?  With Strength you may have a natural ability to develop and speak ideas with a perfect pitch as you modulate the tenor of your expressions like weather washing through. Remember that icky anxiety up there?  May emotions wash through you like weather, like they do with an animal.  If the water’s bad, let it go, and certainly don’t drink it kinda thing.

The Land of Mystereum can provide tools to re-focus the emotional refraction of anxiety. Try it and see. You can get yours at Amazon .

And, back to the order of this blog, your The Star ~ Strength Birth Cards.

To put them back together again in an Evolved Prelude = minus card names: You may often experience the clear strength of your own natural, inner animal in your voice that brings you wits and eternal hope as you continually find your cosmic groove and go for it.  Note the cards are intentionally not mentioned in this second Prelude. They are not really missing, though.  Are they simply and vitally present like the color of your eyes? As embedded and contributory features? Or, is an Evolved Prelude what you come up with when you utilize the cards as counsel, and then make your own decision . . . where it becomes not a “they told me. . .,” but a statement of your own that you supports you? I feel an Evolved Prelude has cut the strings, unlocked the docking clamps like on Star Trek.  You can feel the float, or, enGAGE!

I hope you have enjoyed this The Star ~ Strength Birth Card Identity Blog, and find it useful in your process as you further explore and enhance and express your own, personal Tarot voice!  Tarot in the Land of Mystereum is all about the life-long process of emancipating your Tarot voice in YOUR way.  Teachers are rockin’, gurus not so much.  I remember i a meeting someone telling me there was no I in team.  You have to laugh when someone else chimes in, “There’s no U, either.”  There certainly is U in gurU.  With your eternal hope and naturalized Star ~ Strength inner-animal voice narrating your way, rather than being created in the image of . . . you may well know how much we each HAVE the face of . . .

Hmmm, ever heard of the book Animal Speak by Ted Andrews.  Great book!  I highly recommend it as wonderfully informative, and as well to use each animal as an Oracle card, elucidating animals as totems when they cross your path, enter your experience, whether as a companion, for a while, or simply passing through to say, “Hi. We noticed each other”.

But, thinking about Animal Speak  and your inner-animal and your clarity of voice just gave me an idea.  With your Star ~ Strength dynamic duo . . .  Are you your own living totem? Can you live as your own totem?  What occurs when there is a You-sighting?  What would you like people to feel in higher octaves when there is a You-sighting?

Thanks for your valuable time.  Much appreciated. If this article freed you up to be more you in ways only you can be like The Sun, I am grateful for that.

If this blog strikes chords that resonate with you, I encourage you to pass it along and spread the word.  Please share. Thanks mucho for your support!
‘Till next time.

Sevens: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Sevens
 
Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to identity.  Also, I will layer in Birth Card Preludes to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short statement.  I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, are best stated as triggers to remind one how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of a Birth Card combo in a single voice.  Enjoy finding your own path with these, and I look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of them.  Have fun with ’em!
 
Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like the upcoming Sevens Spread Out video on my YouTube channel — check out links below. 7’s video to be released in the near future.  Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana and Courts in the videos.  Also, again, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well the Royal Court characters.  In The Land of Mystereum the Courts are Your Royal Courts . . . so enjoy taking ownership of your Tarot Birth Cards in YOUR own way!
So, let’s get started with the Sevens Land of Mystereum-style, shall we?

THE TOWER ~ THE CHARIOT
XVI ~ VII  ::  16 ~ 7
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 7, and thus correspond with the Sevens in general, and the (upcoming) Sevens Spread Out video on my YouTube Channel
.
7’s Birth Card Prelude: With The Tower ~ The Chariot as your Birth Cards you may often experience vast abilities to shift focus, redirect scale, and re-orchestrate your momentum in world-altering ways right on the fly wise in time in real time. There can also be a tendency to not look before you leap.
            Let know how you see how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 characters as facets of one personality?
The Tower ~ in world-altering ways; to re-orchestrate, destruction for renewal, the sun comes out after the storm, and the sun always still shines behind dark clouds. Is the silver lining of things simply the indelible Sun of you creeping through regardless of the times or the inner or outer weather?
The Chariot ~ you may often experience vast abilities (to re-orchestrate) your momentum on the fly wise in time to effectively continue making progress.

~ Notice the cross-over overlappage and mixed order in the single Prelude statement that can be gifted by the 2 cards. Integration in these kinds of Prelude statements may very well indicate that things are rarely simply put in line like dominoes disconnected yet set to fall. With integration of concepts, imaginatively, things are incorporated, incorporated like a well-made 3-day rue is folded into and simmered into a gumbo. Certainly not two things once served up. They mix and blend and contribute inter-locking strengths. Is something new made by teaming things up this way? What is your 3-day rue?

~ Is The Tower the pond that remembers its turning over only in its fertility?

~ Is The Chariot as a single sunflower in a vast field of sunflowers? An experiential acceleration in an intense cascade of expansion on the move, meshing and syncing in a seamless segue of motions at speed? Like a chariot that engages from the side to sync up and match and mesh momentums?  Hmmm, a sunflower. Brown ground. Green stalks (wanna say yellow clovers and blue diamonds n Lucky charms). Golden petals. Lush, brown center . . . gold petals connecting to the sun across the sky . . .

You see, in The Land of Mystereum cards are exalted, and they exalt themselves without arrogance and with total confidence AS themselves. They are comfortable with what they are as they further expand and develop themselves. Always complete, never finished, their verbs cycle and shift forward as they speak and live in motion. The Land of Mystereum is not a place to experience “OH, not THAT card!” The Land of Mystereum is a place to live with the cards, to move through their experience to inform your own. And, on THOSE cards?  The cards you don’t want to see? Check out, I Don’t Believe in Bad CardsAll I can say is check out Tarot in the Land of Mystereum, and maybe you can do this quality justice yourself in a reading, on a blog. Try it and see.  Take a look.

So, back to the order of this blog, your Tower ~ Chariot Birth Cards.

The Tower card can represent your Outer Expression.  This is how most people might ‘see’ you in the world.  The Tower card is known for its ability to alter your world across the board in powerfully specific and system-wide ways.  With the Tower card representing your Outer Expression experience the powerfully pervasive ways you fully reconstruct your world in times of marked change.   Know that your strength dwells in abilities to shift strongly.  Keep sight of the ways you reconstruct things, rebuild things, integrate and iterate and reiterate things in bright new ways that create full-boat renewal.  Odds are, with The Tower as your Outer Expression you may be perceived as the one who can be looked to regardless of the situation.  You can build with that single quality.  It is both mortar and stone in regards to personality.

The Chariot can represent your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that maybe only your closest family and friends ‘see’.  The Chariot as your Inner Expression may symbolize that you make connections quickly as you enthusiastically sync up and mesh with your focus directly at speed, in motion, in real-time.  Your modes to engage your focus are most probably agile and forward thinking.  Too few words here for The Chariot?  With The Chariot the meaning occurs in the act.  Your whole life up to a Chariot moment may have prepared you for it.  YAH!  Oh, that was to the horses, not you.  ;-D

Putting them back together again: You may often experience vast abilities to re-orchestrate your momentum in world-altering ways.  Note the cards not mentioned in this second Prelude. They are not really missing, though.  Are they simply and vitally present like the color of your eyes?

I hope you have enjoyed this The Tower ~ The Chariot Birth Card Identity Blog, and find it useful in your process as you further explore and enhance and express your own, personal Tarot voice!  Tarot in the Land of Mystereum is all about the life-long process of emancipating your Tarot voice in YOUR way.  Teachers are rockin’, gurus not so much.  There may be no I or U in team LOL, but there certainly is U in gurU.  With your fuel-injected and aspirated Tower ~ Chariot inner divinity fueling your way, rather than being created in the image of . . . you may well know how much we each HAVE the face of . . .

If this article freed you up to be more you in ways only you can be like The Sun, I am thankful.  ‘Till next time.

Sixes: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Sixes

Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to your identity.

I will layer in Birth Card Preludes to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short statement.  I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, are best stated as triggers to remind one how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of your Birth Card combo with you in a single voice.  Enjoy finding your own path with these, and I look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of your experiences with them.  Have fun with ’em!

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like The Family of the Fours and Mystereum Tarot & the Twos on my YouTube channel — check out the links below as well. 6’s video to be released in the near future.

Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana and Courts in the videos.  Also, again, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well the Royal Court characters.  In Tarot in the Land of Mystereum the Courts are Your Royal Courts . . . so enjoy taking ownership of your Birth Cards YOUR way in regal and Royal fashion!

So, let’s get started with the Sixes Land of Mystereum-style, shall we?
THE DEVIL ~ THE LOVERS
XV ~ VI  ::  15 ~ 6
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 6, and thus correspond with the Sixes in general, and the Sixes Settle In video soon to be released on my YouTube Channel.

6’s Birth Card Prelude:

With XV The Devil ~ VI The Lovers as your Birth Cards you may often experience vibrant and living and healthy and intense earthly desires.  See how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 character as facets of one personality?
~ With The Lovers ~ you may often experience vibrancy in life, or deflation
~ With The Devil ~ you may feel healthy and intense earthly desires, or addiction.
XVVI = in your skivvies?

If you feel higher octaves, though…

~ Are The Lovers vibrant joineries living together in your harmony?

~ Is The Devil your resonant of your natural, earthly desires?

010.1 CtC copy

~ Can you feel The Devil as letting go of the goat-ego that needs immediate hierarchy right upon eye contact, to be maled and femaled so to speak to integrate spirited desires unique to each of us, and develop them with our partner?

~ Is The Devil card representative of Anima or Animus living in each of us like yin and yang? And, with the whole yin-yang as a symbol of mindbodybeatiful (yes, one word) spiritual and bodied Soul Gardener?

~ Can you couple and integrate The Lovers, and express them in a single word?  A made-up word of course, a neologism.  A single word? Is that too tall a task? How ’bout mindbodybeautifulI would say that the black dot is more than a beauty mark on the yin-yang symbol. What do you think? What do you feel about that black dot?

With this Birth Card dynamic duo where The Devil card is a higher number, XV Death can represent your Outer Expression, you yourself, indicated a warranted and natural, elevated expression of yourself.

Your Outer Expression may be how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Devil card is known for its ability to temper desire as it intensifies it, to make it more dense, more strong and ductile without venturing into being brittle, to build with pleasure.  With the Devil card representing your Outer Expression do you have the ability to make grand gestures while keeping in mind to direct their intensities? Know that your natural intensities are an asset. Does this attribute fit you without constriction?

Keep sight to fully steer and orchestrate your momentum as you continually tailor the intensity of your energy levels. The Devil as your Outer Expression may also present as joy experiencing earthly desires. It can flip itself to be a turtle on its back, though, and present as addiction. Desires building in to and up to pleasure are great! Desires skidding out of control off the track? Not so great. Flip your turtle back on its feet.

With The Devil as your Outer Expression I suggest to lend an ear to what you really like and love. I suggest to explore within yourself the earthly desires that actually please you. Not what your expected to like or do. What do YOU like? What floats your boat? Cool, and then that’s that, huh? Because, with the Lovers, they simply love what they love. They resonate together in fluid correspondence, coalesce fluidly, literally, in body, mind, and heart, never even near entertaining losing sight of developing each other’s identity, or numbing one another’s intensities which may have brought them together in the 1st place, together, and together with Self when in solitude, or just about and about doing stuff inside or out.

The Lovers learn not so much from empathy, but actionable resonance with an oh, THAT’s what makes you tick. Cool, let’s do more of that. TELL me about that. Show me. In a basic sense The Lovers are the mind in concert with the heart when positively flooded with dopamine, etc. The indelible memories created by the psychokinetic chemical wash they bring to the fore in one another simply posits grand memories of, remember to do that again. 

The Lovers are a higher octave, epic spiral of giving and receiving, the kind that lives in the seed within them that is the 6 of Pentacles, where a whole oak tree of potentiality lives in a single oak seed. The Lovers are always present, to themself, to their selves, to their alchemical union, to one another, to each other’s alone time temple, and to doing so, they together construct the larger Temple of relationship.

The Lovers only continually know each other as far as they have come to discover themselves, discover one another, and do so together even when apart or looking into themselves. They might not tell each other everything, might not even need to use words to do so, though they both know and feel that as an integral and viable and valuable part of the alchemy of what is wholly theirs, together.

It‘s an is what it is kinda thing with the Death~The Lovers Birth Card pairing. They suggest to relish in, explore, develop, and cherish your natural desires. In fact, they promote their development as only they can, together supporting one another in reciprocality. They are yours. They are all of your own experiences, and now of your own consequence. That can be an amazing treasure when they are in action and you play with healthy boundaries as you interact. The things that have happened to you may not have been your fault, though they’re there. And now, they’re yours. As I am fond of saying, It’s ALL my fault. I’m just that powerful. Can you listen to and play with that responsibility notion instead of blinking, flinching, blaming, shaming, or gaming? It may be fueled more by workability than accountability.

I like to work with the concept of, Don’t waste trouble. If you have Parts you don’t like, can you speak with them? After you gain their trust and/or attention, can you ask them if they have a message for you? Feel into empathy, WITHOUT playing the bird with the broken wing. The things you most dislike about yourself may in fact be parts of yourself that are imprisoned in the trauma that created them. Maybe that’s why they trigger you so intensely so much. Richard Schwartz’s perspective in You are the One You’ve Been Looking for is poignant here. Trauma is always fresh.

Think about that. Trauma is always fresh. Feel into it. Of course it is. Is the only thing your traumas have known the infinite world created by the single moment of your trauma when they peeled out of you for your protection, so you didn’t overload into explosion?

That said, though, hasn’t your trauma lived in them since them? The intensity of the indentured imprisonment of your traumas only grows over time as their unresolved environments continue. What message do they have for you? Understand to respect their place. Happy, sad, glad, and/or mad, they may have grown to immense proportions. May I suggest to allow them to vent to come nearer your trust? May I suggest Powerful Self-Witness? Maybe, this is a quality of Soul Retrieval work? Or, your Soul Gardener weeding and amending the soil all the white reaping, occasionally having treasured moments, daily, in each moment?

I suggest to mind people that present as an Angler Fish person just waiting to consume you after dosing you with shame to lull you, as they are basically lazy and opportunistic loathing working through things… versus feeling into what simply strikes chords on the harp of your heart strings to resonate and gives you joy, and maybe the ablution cascade of tingles through you when that occurs?

Note that I do not disdain or otherwise pejoratively judge lazy people. Just being lazy doesn’t constitute an Angler Fish type of person — read in: narcissist, narcissistic sociopathy, Heck, Bill Gates framed lazy people in a whole ‘ nother light. I will always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it. Give your most complex problems to a group of the laziest people on your team. Make a group out of them, and protect them from the go-getters. And, they will solve it in the simplest way.

The Lovers represents your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’.  Do The Lovers as your Inner Expression symbolize that you feel vibrant harmonies embedded in your innate joinery?  Do you have an innate ability to connect things together within life as you weave your experiences together?

Putting them back together again:  You may often experience vibrant and living and healthy and intense earthly desires.

I hope you have enjoyed this The Devil ~ The Lovers Birth Card Identity Blog, and find it useful in your process as you further explore and enhance and express your own, personal Tarot voice! Tarot in the Land of Mystereum is all about the life-long process of emancipating your Tarot voice in YOUR way.  If this article freed you up to be more you in any way, I am thankful.  ‘Till next time . . .

Fives: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Fives

Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to identity.

Also, I will layer in Birth Card Preludes to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short statement — it’s similar to my Turbo Tarot Reading Method.  I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, are best stated as triggers to remind one how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of a Birth Card combo in a single voice. Yours!  Enjoy finding your own path with these, and I look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of them in the comments.

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos on my YouTube channel.  Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana and Courts in the videos.  Also, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well Your Royal Court characters.

So, let’s get started with the Fives Land of Mystereum-style, shall we?

TEMPERANCE ~ HIEROPHANT
XIV ~ V  ::  14 ~ 5
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 5, and thus correspond with the Fives in general.
5’s Birth Card Prelude: With Temperance ~ The Hierophant as your Birth Cards you have the ability to experience potently stable, magically mixing down-to-earth mind-body connections. When someone says, I’ve got your number, do they simply mean you live by your natural Nature?
            See how the simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 characters as facets of one personality?  Letting it flow out a bit, to expand the simplicity.  Temperance ~ you have the ability to experience potently stable and magically mixing.  The Hierophant ~ down-to-earth mind-body connections.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Is Temperance a magical, alchemical mixing within Self, communion with Self?  Dies The Hierophant bring your spirit down to the earth wisely? I don’t play the Tarot Majors iTunes of the angry, old, white man of The Hierophant. That’s The Hierophant on a bad day as the lower octave, stubborn, unbending traditionalist — read in: indicating a lack of confidence via a control problem most likely needing to be addressed. If that’s the case, what traumas trigger you to react? What traumas can be  honored and respected and Powerfully Witnessed so you can relieve yourself of their inertia and integrate more of your self as they re-gain your trust to dose yourself with more of Yourself?

The “continual” aspect of the wisdom built from your life experiences tenors The Hierophant here to make for an altogether new take on the Traditionalist, the way You are a Traditionalist according to you. As, to have the bonehead title of iconoclast to stick, one might just have had to care about the rules in the 1st place. Call the Hierophant an Old King, a Monastic Master . . . or again, TheHierophant on a bad day can be the stubborn and unbending traditionalist. Both/And. No Either/Or negativity need apply, needn’t. be given the time of day here once resolved within you from you.

I find that this continual aspect of life experience applies to The Hierophant especially aptly in the context of this Birth Card dynamic duo. It feels like Temperance might have rubbed off on the Hierophant in the higher octaves. And, maybe The Hierophant rubs off some discipline of the ritual to the operations of magical mixing alchemy of Temperance, so they alchemize more fluidly like The Lovers? Are you able to bring XIV Temperance and V The Hierophant together in a crucible of cohesive alchemy?  I rather like that as an exercise. How can Death be your Master Soul Gardener to help you explore this with these two?

With the XIV Temperance ~ V Hierophant Birth Card dynamic duo, The Temperance card as a higher number can represent your Outer Expression, you when elevated and immersed in the depths of your higher octaves, like when you heartfelt express yourself clearly.  This Outer Expression of Temperance is how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Temperance card is known for its ability to balance contrasting intensities with care, attention, and a wise-in-time perspective At speed and in motion wise in time. Tall order. They’re up for it.

In fact, it simply what Temperance does. Like with sword making, there is the quench in the oil or water. Do you hear a zzzcrack? Back to the forge. Do you only hear sizzle, and you magically draw out your creation made? Then, your blade is tempered, hardened by the quickening of the quench. That’s an intense gig. THink of a young and forming sword being put to that test. Is their fear for positive awareness to navigate, or is it afraid kidnapped by anxiety. Both of these cards can assist with navigational clarity, fear simply as trail markers and road signs that express, “Notice. Notice that.” Anxiety is not a quality of either of these cards unless they are stuck and dragged in the dredging of their lower octaves. If that’s the case, can you ask for their guidance to raise your heart and head to grow a Lotus out of that mud?

With the Temperance card representing your Outer Expression, can you experience your natural abilities to bring things together, to magically mix them much as nature does? Do you resonate with a developed ability to pour away interruptions As you are purifying the ablution of your balanced and continual flow — i.e have healthy boundaries as a tool?  How can you keep sight to continually keep each contrasting intensity strong in its identity without diluting it, and at the same time freshly contribute to further continue  to build your value, your self worth?

The Hierophant represents your Inner Expression, the depth of your identity, your character.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’.  The Hierophant as your Inner Expression can symbolize that you have natural abilities to feel down-to-earth mind-body connections.  Do you have a down-to-earth spirit with which to infuse your world/  New spirit is continually brought in with this combo? How can you be down to earth where you are your own father figure (child having birthed the Parent of the Man or Woman? How are YOU the traditionalist who places and integrates things in your own, personal way.

Putting them back together again in Prelude form minus the titles, incorporating them as a reflection and expression of personality:  You have the ability to experience potently stable and magically mixing down-to-earth mind-body connections . . . matter of factly as a normal personality trait.  And, this is SO not normal . . . Is this one of your natural qualities that you are able to exalt to keep the things you do refreshed and in so doing free yourself up to build more value in your life?  I find that when things are integrated AND contribute their own strength of identity in their own ways, oftentimes simplicity is also vibrantly expansive.  Like the ocean, always continually ebbing, constantly flowing.  Always is still simply the ocean, simply a body of water, and my my expansively deep and discovery-quest-level HUGE!
I hope you have enjoyed this Temperance ~ Hierophant Birth Card Identity Blog.  May you find it useful in your process as you further explore and enhance and express your own, personal Tarot voice!  Tarot in the Land of Mystereum is all about the life-long process of emancipating your Tarot voice in YOUR way.  All similar, each unique, as The Land of Mystereum’s mascot says.  I will also put some more words in Chiron’s mouth, and add, Always complete, and never finished. Where did Chiron come from out of the blue? Well, it was probably out of another color. As the Wounded Healer, he’s had pm=Lenny of enough blue. And, in a sense his life experience prowess lives even beyond The Fool. And, he pretty much was the form-giver to Tarot in the Land of Mystereum.
And, in closing . . . Enter The Hierophant speaking directly
I am the Hierophant, your spirit continually coming to the earth.  I am the source of your life force.  I fill you with light.  I permeate Mystereum along with The Hermit, and address you with ‘I’ to stabilize your identity for love in The Lovers to come next.  The Hermit’s wise and reflective light comes to provide a darkness that consolidates ideas like the moon.  Through the wisdom of that which is pure and not-knowing, I provide an inner light which turns on the mystery of life itself.  Turn on the mystery of life itself within you and I am there.  Feel it in your ideas!

Death As The Master Gardener (+a little extra to chew on + BONUS!)

Enjoy Jordan Hoggard’s fun and depthful exploration of the Death card utilizing a mindset he generated for Schiffer Publication’s 2010 release of “Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer”, available at The Tarot Garden and on Amazon and bookstores everywhere. The Land of Mystereum is composed of a 192-page Imagination Primer + retooled Mystereum Tarot deck to emancipate the personalities inherent in Tarot cards and inspire you to further discover natural components of your imagination that you can personally develop and utilize in powerfully actionable ways throughout your everyday life.  It has Tarot speak, each card in their own voice, to enhance YOUR Tarot voice through dialogue and stories expressed by the cards.

Throughout this presentation keep in mind that if your intuition ever feels a little off, or whacked, or having gone missing, it is suggested to simply let it rest.  Simply, let it rest.  Simply listen and surf and swim with your eyes and ears rather than concerning yourself that your intuition feels off.  Maybe it simply rests in your logic.  In this case let your mind and logic flow. Maybe it is transforming.  You may be pleasantly surprised.  Rest is a death of sorts, a rejuvenation time, especially utilizing the way of The Land of Mystereum.  Death is also outright.  Finishes.  Completions.  Death is the mother of memory, and the fertilizer for dreams.

So, let’s get The Death card to come alive for you and play with Death Mystereum-style!  Here we go!

Visualize leaves falling from a tree.  Focus on a single leaf and follow it all the way to the ground in your mind.  Tis is SO not like trying to kiss a promise. What does it do there once on the ground?  Over time it will decompose.  Think of the concept of decomposing.  Something losing its form.  Something moving back into a formless state.

Now raise your mental focus back to the falling leaves as you begin to notice the tree.  As you begin to un-focus on the leaves, keep a soft awareness of their falling.  Begin to clearly see the tree.  From where you are focus in on the tree.

Smile into the tree as you sense how each and every leaf softly and simply pop-drops off the tree to begin its journey towards becoming nourishment.  As each leaf softly begins to fall, begins this part of its journey, feel how the tree is invigorated as it sheds each tiny little scale of a leaf, like each tiny little chaff shell from wheat in the wind.

Now, enhance your focus on the tree as a life force.  Feel the leaves lost, the leaves shed.  Feel how they strengthen the tree.  Feel how things lost strengthen the clarity and energy of your own focus.

Let’s add a bit more depth and spice here.  The Black Crucible of The Magician!  What is that, The Black Crucible of The Magician?

Closing your eyes visualize the big bowl of your night sky as a huge, black crucible, an immense forming-vessel.  And then, visualize a shooting star to cross this black bowl of your night sky.  Allow The Magician to magically remember the 1st spark of inspiration that crosses your imagination, and the rejuvenating death of its disappearance.  Remember the 1st spark of an idea.  Visualize that shooting star AS the 1st spark of an idea.  Slow its instantaneous coming and going down as you watch it slowly cross your night sky.  Watch it and smile.  Imagine it again.  Now, as you begin to imagine it again, slow down your big bowl of night sky that is around it and watch the whole scene as the shooting star appears and slowly, slowly moves across your big bowl of night sky slowly. Slowly.  Slowly.  And, it is gone again, going through a cycle of life, a cycle of death.  Run slowly through that again as you count to 9.  Remember the shooting star as it plays slowly in long-form each time you have an idea.  Remember this slow-form of your idea to gear into ITS mode of cycles before you jump in and write it down.   Adjust to the pace and rhythm of you idea.  Slowly gear into it as you steer yourself to jot down the remembrance in its own particular ways, with its own, personal, identifying qualities.

Think of something you struggle with or identify a challenge you enjoy.  As you open your eyes, no need to stay Tarot-related here, open your eyes and jot down an idea that came to you, any idea.  Really begin to express the particular core of this idea, a primary connective tissue of its influence, its essence.

This idea will be your topic to explore the Death card in a Land of Mystereum way with direct and Actionable Imagination as a tool.  We will utilize a 3-card Treasure of Tuning over the Stones Tarot spread and The Treasure of Turning Over the Stones methods of Tarot reading here.  This is a session to further and clearly illuminate multiple ways to utilize the change of the Death card for transformation and regeneration WHILE you are experiencing the change. This is a way to enhance your view and feeling-sense of the Death card to further experience interactivity in your Tarot sessions with yourself and with clients, an also to utilize the nourishing qualities of Tarot in your everyday life.

Death indicates that you yourself, alive, that you ARE The Phoenix!  Life and death are the same thing here really, or, one thing, a life-and-death.

Visualize Death as a winter garden, a place where things rest to renew.  Sense the winter garden in the space between each and every moment you experience. Visualize a winter garden space between each moment that infuses the moments you feel flux, feel the rest for rejuvenation of the winter garden.  Feel the rests.  Sense the pauses.  Feel the spaces between moments.  Feel the rests, the little deaths in pauses that prepare you, prepare you AS Phoenix for continual renewal, to keep you refreshed during change.  This is as continuous as the body’s chaff of dead skin flaking off.

Not such an attractive image there? You are right! Death can have a putrid quality.  But, like wheat, feel the chaff, the chaff blown off, the chaff blown off dead in the wind.  As the chaff disappears see and feel only the wheat reveals!  Your dead skin flaking off as an unattractive image?  Sense and feel the amazingly attractive image of YOU continually revealed!  Feel yourself here AS The Phoenix!  Experience the Death card from life, with you AS The Phoenix!

Now, let’s take this interactive quality further.  I suggest to close your eyes again, but I simply suggest that.  You do what you feel best.

Visualize leaves falling.   Visualize a tree in the background.

Still the tree blurred in the background.  Still it. Make it motionless.

Begin to focus on the tree.  As each leaf hits the ground in its Morticia-style love of death, the tree focused in your mind, feel each leaf kiss the ground,

feel each leaf kiss the ground to return, to nourish, your tree.

As each leaf falls from your tree feel the tree subtle things live more brightly,

feel your tree subtly live larger moment by moment, moment by moment it expands as each leaf leaves the tree, as each leaf kisses the ground.

There can be a Morticia-style kind of death-love that nourishes your tree here.  Take several deep breaths, several deep breaths, and subtly, leaving the tree in your mind, come back to the room.

I would like a short period of silence for you here.  Settle in.  Let sound die to thicken the living rue of silence.  Count to 9 in your mind slowly.

This presentation is primarily visualizations to bringing images to mind as I feel Tarot is about visual story, about images and their influences.  Here images can catalyze and emphasize your ideas, creativity, and intuition as the 4-charactered voice of imagination, the 4-charactered voice of imagination where the 4th character is the space between idea and creativity and intuition that brings the 3 into relationship.  Listen and fully sense this 4-charactered approach of imagination’s voice as simply one of the many ways to enhance the actionable and effective qualities of your imagination.

Now, here is a GRAND image for experiencing the magical and imaginative qualities of death:

A caterpillar sees the end of the world in a flower, where a Master envisions, dreams a butterfly sipping the nectar.  Walk-talk-see-feel yourself to travel as a caterpillar.  Maybe you feel there is something in a caterpillar of one of your ideas that you must do.  Do you encase the idea in a chrysalis?  Are you able to let the idea you fall asleep in its caterpillar life, let it sleep in the psychic winter garden of this chrysalis? Your idea may fall asleep to your life, and what of when it awakens transformed?!  This is about Death as a letting go where you are able to respect the variety of timing and cycles that most naturally nourish any particular idea as you transform it to provide the most effective influence from its naturalized identity.

To truly let go of your idea as the caterpillar does in the chrysalis, your idea can literally liquefy inside the chrysalis as it transforms to its new, natural state.  To truly let go like a caterpillar does in totality, your idea can liquefy to awaken in new form. . . with wings even!

You see, a caterpillar doesn’t go on a diet, lose some legs, and grow some wings.  A caterpillar literally liquefies into a primordial soup in its case, its vessel, its chrysalis that operates as its personal self-made womb, an alchemical life-crucible of its own making to liquefy within and throughout so that it may naturally reconstitute! It may naturally reconstitute as a butterfly!  Hear that?  How cool!  The caterpillar soup reCONSTITUTES, reconstitutes to beCOME a butterfly! How cool is THAT?!

It slide-emerges out of the chrysalis it made as it cracks it like a snake with egg-tooth from its egg as the NOW butterfly swells.  It unfurling-its-wet-wings emerges as, more than meets the eye as it wings unfurl as if larger than possible from that tiny chrysalis, its skin shedded like a snake, its skin not missed.  Let one of your ideas crack-hatch here as it emerges from the forming life-crucible of your own making.  Experience this emergence as Death, in an awakening!  The chrysalis can crack open and with wet and folded wings the butterfly slowly stretches to unfold and unfurl its new “LEGS” like a cat waking from a nap.  Its legs to get around are now wings!  And, where did the other legs go?  Interesting, that butterflies taste with their feet.  Cracking the vessel of its chrysalis, the butterfly literally broke the mold . . . and I would venture to guess when a butterfly sees a catterpillar, it might just think, “What’s that pretty crawly thing?”  Like a pond turning over, I gather that the butterfly remembers the caterpillar only in its newfound fertility and flight as a way of life.

The butterfly broke the mold to emerge slowly. . .as a butterfly!  Notice a smile as its wet and folded wings unfurl?

Not as chaff to be blown off by the wind, the butterfly leaves the chrysalis, having broke the mold as it emerged, to fly ON the wind!  To raise into the winds of change as it flies!  And, once you can fly, flight becomes a way of life so says the butterfly!  The Phoenix flies!  Your ideas can fly as you unfurl your arms and you slowly wake to the room! Fly back right here!

So, here I will simply make some statements for reflection, for dreaming of flight.

Force is not necessary to change.  Forces are, but change may be effortless on your part.  Maybe.  Massage this like clay.  Throw a mind-pot on your imagination’s potter’s wheel.

Be comfortable with the not-knowing like the caterpillar who knows there is something that simply has to be accomplished. Accomplishment = meaning that occurs AS action here.  The not-knowing?  What is that really?  It means that meanings and reasons occur IN your actions rather than in explanation.  Meaning occurs in the act.  Meaning occurs AS the act, infusing it throughout.

Meaning.  Reason.  Meaning and reason IN action!  Think of the not-knowing as your personal path to enhance your ability to be attached to one thing.  You do not need to be attached to life.  As the comedian Lazy Boy says with a big laugh, “Have fun and do your thing.  None of us are getting out alive.”  So, what is this one thing to be attached to?  Death takes care of your outcomes?  More than that natural feature.  That feels rather uninspiring.  Explore simply being attached to one thing.  Explore being attached to being pleasantly surprised, often.  Be attached to being pleasantly surprised daily!  Lose the trip-ups.  Spread your wings and lift your legs, glide right over them . . . and maybe even begin doing so naturally, unaware of them, eyes on the flower, eyes on the prize.

The way I look at death in this way is this.  The older I get, the more comfortable and happy I get. Frank Lloyd Wright put it this way, “The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.”

So, for Death I have presented you with:

the not-knowing and the chrysalis

You as Phoenix and your ideas as leaves

Ideas as a tree.  Feet as taste buds of earthly connection.

As you are here alive, I see death, as in the Death card, as this totality of transformation. Transformation, then, is a way to open up, to break the mold.  Transformation is a way to open portals of discovery in ways like a caterpillar that becomes a butterfly, your ideas that become more than you never dreamed as you garden them to naturalize over time and cycles and seasons.

So, lastly before I share aspread, I hope there have been inspiring moments for you throughout this presentation, and that there have been and will continue to be inspiring moments in each of your lives that emerge from chrysalises, each chrysalis to be posited in lineage, as it is forgotten into flight.

So, in the final moment here of my presentation, as I die it to completion, I will touch on grief from a Death card perspective.  We each grieve differently, and we each grieve differently each time.  So, each time you draw the Death card take a moment to silently let the chaff and the falling leaves disappear to reveal the wheat and the tree and the Phoenix as they present themselves in your reading.  To reveal lineage forgotten into the treasure that is flight.  Literally, sense fully to get at what is emerging, and what emerges rather than what is falling away.

And, in big ole chaff and falling leaves ways, think about any marked disruption in a life.  Yours.  Somebody else.  The life of an idea.  It may not be that their life is truly falling apart.  That may be caterpillar thought.  It may be that their life falls together for the first time, and feels different, even alien to the previous.  Like comparing a caterpillar to a butterfly.

spoken in a 1st person voice of Death like in The Land of Mystereum, to literally and really let the cards speak:

Death.

I am the marriage of things that bridge, bridge by going somewhere else,

that go somewhere else, to marry each of us to the Other, always alive.

The Other always alive receives death with open arms to marry us here to live our celestial groove.

So, forgetting the leaf . . .for. . . .getting the tree.

Forgetting the caterpillar. . .for. . .getting the butterfly.

Forgetting the chaff. . .for. . .getting the wheat.

Forget your loss. . .for. . .getting the natural change and evolutions in your life.

Getting your life . . . You . . . Alive . . . Death is an ally

You . . . alive . . . Are your best ally!  You ARE THE PHOENIX!

The Phoenix is reincarnation incarnate . . .

and with that, I come to the epitaph of this presentation so it may rest in peace . . .

Death’s epitaph speaking to reincarnation:  I have been dying my whole life to get right HERE NOW, and always will be!  Ask me again tomorrow where I may be differently informed.        ~ The End ~

Thank you for your time.  I encourage you to feel your transformations and move and feel and think with the fresh new abilities your transformation awaken for you.  I encourage you to feel your transformations wise in time, experiencing them AS they happen, the meaning occurring in the act, and throughout their durations.  Feel your own wisdom inform your change DURING the change to work with it and enhance and refresh your fluidity.  I do not feel that transformations give you self-development homework to reason with to chew up your value and compost your dreams.  I see the patience of a butterfly in transformations. Can you be patient like the butterfly enjoying the scenery, noticing flowers and a natural draw to them?  A few wet flaps in the wind to get the good gist, and . . . flight!  May you always get your good gist.  Wet and new like a butterflies wings, may you in a few short flaps see your own flowers.  Thanks for your time!

Jupiter’s Blessings,

Jordan Hoggard

The Land of Mystereum

Spread Bonus sprouted for Death ~ 3-Card Treasure of the Stones spread:

to discover the treasure of the card’s flight under the chrysalis, under the stone. . the treasure of turning over the stones.

Shuffle your cards and once you feel your shuffling is at a place that resonates with you, your deck is in sync for your reading, hold your deck out over where you read, maybe 2 or 3 inches above it.

Drop a portion of the deck as one pile or stone as I call it.  Drop another next to it as a second stone.  And, a third.  Do this to make 3 mini-decks of stones.

~ Top of the 2nd stone is Card 2: The chrysalis of what you need to know about your current idea or situation.

~ Top of the 3rd stone is Card 3: The chrysalis cracking card.  The card of breaking the mold.

Read your cards from those perspectives.  THEN!  Pick up the 1st stone and shake it all around to get the imaginary sand off of it.  And as you are rolling it and shaking shake shake shake holding on to it FLIP your hand to turn over the stone.  The bottom card is the treasure of the top card.  How does the treasure emerge from the top card like a butterfly emerges from its chrysalis?  Work these two cards to together.  Let the top card be lineage, be place, be the subject.  Let the the top card be informed by its treasure. Express how the bottom card can be the treasure of the top card.

And, if you have made it this far, you are a real trooper!  So, here is another added bonus spread.  All I ask is that when the spread indicates for you to remove cards and make them disappear, do so like deadheading in a garden.  Cleanly snap ’em right off so the other flowers of cards can thrive.  Or as New Zealanders might say, Deedheeding, Man. Do kiwis use commas? ;-D

Form-Giver

Form-Giver

A Prelude to Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer.  The Original Mystereum Tarot Inception Story.   Enjoy!  So, you have a sense of how the Mystereum Tarot and The Land of Mystereum came to be . . .

The Mystereum Tarot Card Back

 

 I do not believe that reading the tarot is soothsaying or prophecy, and as well those are fun!  I do not believe that the cards give you anything that you don’t already have, much as the future does not, either. That’s an important point from my perspective.  The cards provide archetypal image references, seats for your mind, places to give place to your story.  And, a good tarot reader might tell you your story much in a way that many are not accustomed to in day to day language and experience. A Reading can be as much a non-sequitur that opens a part of your world as a catalyst, or act directly as a guide on your path. The cards compose a graphic story of psychic place, a set of images from and into which to unfold your context which is oftentimes already present, and simply not seen.  Informed perspectives are priceless!

The concept of setting into the creative adventure of this tarot deck began several years back when I made a connection between the meaning of architecture and The Magician and The High Priestess. And when I say the meaning of architecture I am literally looking to the word architecture itself. There is a four-point mode of being that I enjoy for the general purpose of architectural analysis which I will use to preface this connection for conversation’s sake, and to provide just a moment of suspense. This four-point mode is somewhat existential, and I have to honestly say I don’t think about these four points much anymore unless a building really perplexes me. Things incorporate over time, are amended into the soil so to speak:

1 How does a building stand on the ground?   How do you present yourself?

2 How does a building extend to the sides?  How do you extend beyond yourself and interact?

3 How does a building open and close?  How do you receive and set boundaries?

4 How does a building meet the sky?   How powerfully and clearly do you feel your dreams?

Now, for just a bit more suspense. I won’t go in to whether something has to be a building to be considered architecture. That’s another story, and tarot is the order of the day here. 

OK. Architecture. The meaning of architecture. If I disassemble the word into its Greek roots, I get arche and techne, and I STILL can’t remember how to make the accent over a letter work on my keyboard. I ask that you please imagine the accent and play along. Further for your imagination, that the accent starts low on the left and ends high on the right. Accent ague? Accent grave? Imagination. Arche, techne. Say ar-kay. Tek-nay. And, here’s where I made a connection.

Arche is the first inkling, the creation, the first spark of an idea. Arche is the place of inception, your place of creation, the internal house of your making, the vessel for all the things you bring into your world. Techne is the making, the putting together of the idea that has been created. Techne is the place of conception, where you give form to the formless. . .where the fledgling identities you create thrive! And, I saw The Magician and The High Priestess with their respective 1st spark of The Magician in the Place of Creation, and then the giving form to creations in the making of The High Priestess. And though I remained fascinated with the deck and stayed my course with architecture and art, the connection didn’t stick. Or, so I thought. . .

Scroll forward several years to the summer of 2006 while I’m gardening, and I look up at my turn-of-the-century Victorian house (1906) and realize that I’ve been working on the cards here and there, reading text and history when I can, or simply come across it with a welcome freshness, and …RUSH inside and rinse the dirt off my grubby hands and open up the folder on my computer. . . and there I saw. . . just down the page!…The Empress carrying to full term! The Emperor overseeing! And, it came to mind that I was thick in the middle of the largest scale project I have ever undertaken, had been discovering its sacred burial ground as I amended the soil in my own garden. Imagine my bright, wide eyes when I eventually came to looking at the Judgment card having a Hanged Man moment!  Afloat in clarity with consequences as my only thought!

Though architecture provided a form-giving metaphor for the creation of the Mystereum Tarot. . . from which I lifted arche, techne, identity, place, and context. . . the architecture may or may not stop right there. . . as the warm-up is oftentimes not a member of the performance, but an informing feeling. Either way or neither, though, my path was re-experienced and re-built, built back in upon refreshingly. . . expanding and contracting. . .pulsing with new life re-invigorating a continually pulsing path through the scales of life, driven by life itself.

Tarot in the Land of Mystereum Card Back

The tarot cards are wonderful trail-markers as well as storytellers along the path. Sometimes there is the soliloquy of a single card as the context. Sometimes a card or cards speak with the chorus of the other cards to flesh out context. Most all tarot decks present a visual vitality that speaks to the mind – you can call it consciousness or anything else for that matter. . .but in this regard, never-mind the research in this area(s) in this regard though fitting and inspiring even…in this regard there is no proof or re-proof but life itself. In this regard we each have our own say. With vitality at a variety of scales, and incorporating the concept of all similar, each unique to the cards, to ourselves, a whole world is present and complete at each and every scale. . .

And there, at that point was a shell in my garden cracking open of its own accord underground, felt and yet unseen, the story of the creation and making of this deck sprouting, remembering origin and destiny as one and the same maybe. Or not. The roots of tarot and architecture will flower perennially in my garden, naturalizing over time.  A wonderfully complete deck becoming dog-eared from use, naturalizing in the garden of life!   I will move from there now to the fruits that began to come from my garden in the summer of 2006.

Enjoy the Mystereum Tarot as it has made its way to become Tarot in the Land of Mystereum in 2010.  Thanks for visiting!  Proud to now have Tarot in the Land of Mystereum at The Tarot Garden, on Amazon, and at bookstores everywhere! 

Jupiter’s Blessings!,

Fours: Birth-Placing Identity

Fours: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Fours

DEATH ~ EMPEROR  ::  XIII ~ IV   ::  13 ~ 4

Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to your identity.  Also, I will layer in Birth Card Preludes to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short statement — Turbo Tarot Reading I call it. Short, sweet, and oftentimes deceptively simple.

I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, turbo-readings of sorts, are best stated afterward, later to be utilized as initial triggers to remind oneself back to how the Birth Cards can tenor and integrate an overall expression from a single, natural voice.  Enjoy finding your own path with these, and I look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of what you experience when you work with them..

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like the Grounding WIth the Family of the Fours.  Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana of the same number, and as well your Courts in the videos.  Also, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well Your Royal Court characters.

So, to start for example with this 2-card Birth Card combo, the 1st card can represent a person’s Outer Expression.  The 2nd card can represent their Inner Expression.  So for example with the Birth Card Chart combo of a XIII, IV; 13, 4; Death ~ The Emperor:

13 is the Outer Expression              4 is the Inner Expression

A Prelude of your own making can create and make your own brand of an Added Incentive that is integrated, hides in plain sight as something simply natural, and /or is simply inherent from your perspective.

Example: 4’s Birth Card Prelude: With Death ~ The Emperor as your Birth Cards you might have the ability to experience transformational senses of place?  Hold that thought, and . . . let’s get started walking through the the 4’s shall we?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

DEATH ~ EMPEROR
[ XIII ~ IV  ]   [ 13 ~ 4 ]
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 4, and thus correspond with the Fours in general, and the Grounding WIth the Family of the Fours video on the Videos page of my Mystereum YouTube Channel.

The Death card represents your Outer Expression.  This is how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Death card is known for its abilities to renew, rebirth, and regenerate. It’s a bit like the 8th House in Astrology — sex, death, and regeneration. No wonder orgasm in the French is le petit morte, the little death. With the Death card your Outer Expression is represented by the experience the re-growth of things that replace decay. Are pregnant with ideas?  Do you keep sight of their refreshing qualities?

The Emperor represents your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’ — notice a them with the Inner Expression aspect?  With the Emperor as your Inner Expression, is it symbolized that you have an intrinsic sense of home and place and environment? — very Taurus and Libra, and some may take issue with this, though also very Sagittarian.  Do you have a genius driven by both place in general and your placement within most any situation?

4’s Birth Card Prelude: With Death ~ The Emperor as your Birth Cards you are graced and imbued with abilities to experience transformational senses of place. Do you see how this simple Prelude statement can express the 2 characters together as facets of one personality?:

Death ~ You have abilities to experience the transformational.
With The Emperor, astute senses of place.

Putting them back together again: Do you have developed abilities to experience transformational senses of place?  Enjoy your Birth Card Prelude as the cadence of a heartbeat to energize the things you do.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog, and find it useful in your process as you further emancipate And further enhance, reinforce, and strengthen the clarity of your own, personal, valuable Tarot voice!

Jupiter’s Blessings,

~ Jordan & The Land of Mystereum

Threes: Birth-Placing Clarity

Threes: Birth-Placing Clarity

The World ~ The Hanged Man ~ The Empress :: XXI ~ XII ~ III

Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to identity.  Also, I will layer in Birth Card Preludes to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short and integrated statement.  You may also find the Preludes to be expansive catalysts, too.

I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, turbo-readings of sorts, are best stated afterward, later to be utilized as initial triggers to remind one of how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of the Birth Cards from a single voice.  And, they can of course be utilized first in a way like a Significator Card comprised of, in this case all 3.  Enjoy finding your own path with these, and look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of them in Your Tarot voice.

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like the  Twos To Pair and Grounding with the Family of the Fours.  Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana and Courts in the videos.  Also, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well Your Royal Court characters.

So, to start for example with this 3-card Birth Card combo, the first card can represent a person’s Outer Expression.  The 2nd card can be their Added Incentive.  And, the 3rd card can represent their Inner Expression.

So for example with the Birth Card Chart combo of a XXI, XII, III; 21, 12, 3; The World ~ The Hanged Man ~ The Empress:

21 is the Outer Expression    12 is the Added Incentive     3 is the Inner Expression

For a 21, 3 combo:
21 is the Outer Expression    3 is the Inner Expression.  A Prelude of your own making can create and make your own brand of an Added Incentive integrated, hiding in plain sight, and /or simply inherent from your perspective.
So, let’s get started walking through the the 3’s shall we?

THE WORLD ~ THE HANGED MAN ~ THE EMPRESS
[ XXI ~ XII ~ III ]   [ 21 ~ 12 ~ 3 ]
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 3, and thus correspond with the Threes in general, and my Mystereum Tarot and the Threes video. If you resonate with the videos on my YouTube Channel, please share them, and spread the word far and wide about Tarot in the Land of Mystereum. Feel free to embed them on your blog or site. Wholehearted thanks if you do!

3’s Birth Card Prelude: With The World ~ The Hanged Man ~ The Empress as your Birth Cards you have abilities to feel expansively afloat in clarity as you abundantly carry things to full term.  A Birth Card Prelude can be as simple as a few words, and as inviting and expansive as the title of a book, the ever-evolving book of You!

See how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 3 character as facets of one personality:
The World~expansive    The Hanged Man~afloat in clarity  Empess~carry to full term

Putting them back together again as an integrated Prelude statement: With The World ~ The Hanged Man ~ The Empress as your Birth Cards you have abilities to feel expansively afloat in clarity as you abundantly carry things to full term.  Does this strike chords to resonate with you? Are you comfortable with the not-knowing while consistently being actionable, getting things done?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The World card represents your Outer Expression.  This is how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The World card is known for its ability to endure and support many complex systems. With The World card representing your Outer Expression enhance your natural ability to work with boundary-less concepts across the board. Know that you cast a wide net. If you have strong Neptune in your Astro Chart may I suggest to wring your sponge often to squeeze out foreign intensities that may fetter your clarity, and enhance and reinforce clear expressions without unnecessary inclusions. Influence can be grand, though after experiencing intensity notice how cats and dogs, other animals, too, literally shake it off. Some thing this an adrenalin dump. I find it freshening, shakes off encumbrances, like switching gears to enhance movement.

The Hanged Man represents your Added Incentive.  This is a card of being afloat in clarity, and what many call enlightenment. And, enlightenment may not be a constant state once reached, may not even be a stable state. Though, from my experience it happens more than people know. Glimpses. Tastes. Theosophic visions, i.e. awakedreams. I’m not qualified here to make a distinction between an awake dream or theosophic vision and an hallucination. A Psychologist might better speak to that. When The Hanged Man is part of your Added Incentive you can expect to feel clear and comfortable in most any situation in your life. Are you able to stand in intense situations and simply experience? Are you able to not absorb, and simply be present and experience without words, simply provide a mirror of truth to whatever comes your way?

The Empress represents your Inner Expression. This, like the High Priestess, is a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’ — notice the character in The Empress all Golden and at full term. It’s The High Priestess character in Mystereum who gave form to The Magician’s formless inception. She conceived. The Empress then carries that sequence to full term from her Yoniverse, that from which all things emanate. The Empress as your Inner Expression symbolizes that you nurture abundance as you carry things to full term, willfully, actionably, and naturally. Do you have an ability to be the consummate, soulful gardener of your life? Does your vast strength come from within?

And, to simply return to the Prelude . . . the 3’s Birth Card Prelude: With The World ~ The Hanged Man ~ The Empress as your Birth Cards you have abilities to feel expansively afloat in clarity as you abundantly carry things to full term, and I would like to show this again to show how simple this simple Prelude statement expresses the 3 characters as facets of one personality . . . how simple something that is both integrative AND expansive can be:

The World ~ You have abilities to expansively

The Hanged Man ~ feel afloat in clarity

The Empress ~ as you abundantly carry things to full term.

Putting them back together again: You have abilities to feel expansively afloat in clarity as you abundantly carry things to full term.  Enjoy your Birth Card Prelude as the cadence of a heartbeat to energize the things you do.  Have a depthful blast creating and making your own.  Have your ideas, and then put them together just so in just Your way!
I hope you have enjoyed this blog, and find it useful in your process as you further enhance and freely emancipate your own, personal Tarot voice!

Until next time!

Jupiter’s Blessings,
