SI: 11/20 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 11/20 Serendipity Itinerary

Welcome to Your November 20th, 2020 SI. The Moon move from Aquarius today, Friday 11/20 at 7:49p, as it passes through the Void of Course Astro Sign Synapse Portal. It will emerge Direct on the other side of the cusp between signs in Pisces tomorrow, 11/21 at 11:06p. A day+ is a relatively long Void of Course relative to the Moon’s typical 3 – 6 hour Voids. Your dreams may go deeper during this period of Moon Surrender as I sometimes call it. It surrenders its engagement to naturally enact a rest and relief to be fresh and wholly engage the next sign.

After 11:06p on 11/21 the Moon will continue Direct as it journeys through Pisces, to then dive back under through the Void of Course Portal at 5:44a on Tuesday, 11/24. It will emerge Direct again in Aries on 11/24 at 10:05a. Into the Void Portal again Thursday, 11/26, at 6:46p, and back out of the Void Portal 11/26 at 10:43P Direct in Taurus… and then, we’ll continue the trek with next week’s Serendipity Itineraries, SI for short.

Void of Course Moon

Void of Course is a bit like a mini-Mercury Rx, though instead of the magnetic drag of Mercury appearing to slow, which advises us to downshift, the opposite happens when the Moon goes Void of Course. Rather than drag, there is a slip, a letting go of the Astro Sign connection to disappear across the synapse of the cusp between signs.

I feel the Void of Course period, the Cusp Crossing makes for a wonderful liminal horizon to surf with a foot on both sides, though I mark it in my schedule to not start new projects during it. When I do, their effectiveness invariably slips away like they didn’t even exist, or they are driving on ice with bald tires.

The Void of Course Moon period carries a sense of float where you may viscerally feel Almost weightless. It’s easy to miss unless you intently feel-listen as it is typically short, several hours to a day. It is as if the impact of projects that start during the Void are all but zeroed out by the MIA Void Moon Lunation Wave Formers.

For all intents and purposes it may feel like a car disengaged by being put in neutral, or when the clutched is step-tapped in and not released. A pause of sorts.

During intense work, creative or otherwise, it may also feel like running up fast in 6th gear only to pass 150mph and discover your car has a US-required speed limiter. The fuel injectors cut out, and the 1st time this happens it felt like OH SHIT, I’m floating barely touching the ground at 150 and only in a 4-cylinder…. HOLY SHIT WTF THIS ISN’T GOOD. A rising sense of terror emerges. You grip the wheel harder. You come off the gas and judiciously start to get into the brakes to lightly step-tap yourself back down until the fuel injectors wake back up. There’s no diving into brakes without the counterbalance of the power that got you there in the Justice of an experience like this.

Yes, there’s a metaphor for life in that. The sudden loss of ALL power at that speed is hellishly un-nerving… and, even more so the 2nd time when you know it’s going to happen. No, 3rd time for me, though. My stubbornness has its own set of powerful limits, its own place of Void of Course. Baseball came to mind, and I decided I would rather make my presentation in Vail than achieve Strike 3 You’re Out. From Denver, it’s typically about 1 1/2 hours to Vail. Suffice it say I had some fun, though within my levels of acceptable risk as I made the trip in 47 minutes. I don’t need or want a repeat performance of that. Though, it sure is a blast to remember. Like any trauma, the feeling re-surfaces fresh and ready to engage. Now, I simply steep a bit with a wry smile and bright eyes as I think, Now, how cool was THAT?!!

Trauma, though directly linked to the time it occurs carries a timeless quality. It tucks away deep inside if not directly addressed wise in time as it occurs. And, when we are triggered, it emerges as fresh as it was when it was born into the psyche. That’s what lives within the phrase, ‘Trauma is always fresh.’ One goal I suggest is to Train yourself to catch the inner flash when trauma is triggered, say ‘Thank you. Hold on a sec,’ as you embrace it within without allowing it to merge with the trigger, whatever triggered it, and as you acclimate proceed back into your conversation. Most often you can revisit it on your own time unless you are with a good friend, at which point I suggest to turn the conversation back in upon the trauma to share it and potentially receive a fresh perspective from them that may help bring it to fully re-surface to empathically listen to towards receiving its message so that it can integrate by re-homing in its proper home in your body. A cascade of ablution Tingles is a common way the integration presents. Note where it went in your body. Smile, and welcome it with thanks. ~ Jordan Hoggard

A more fun And less wordy waffle way to think about Void of Course is to visualize the Moon as it goes Void as those fun and magical, black portal openings in the movie Time Bandits. One minute it’s there and engaged, the next, HEY! Where’d it GO?!! Well, it went somewhere. Reasons are often unreasonable, and a healthy comfortability with the not-knowing allows your surrender to keep the open door welcome on the other side free and clear of obstruction.

During the VoC Moon

I advise to focus on the flow and structure of existing projects you have in the works. We all kind of Evil Knievel float through the air with the Moon temporarily disconnected… though without the experience of all the broken bones when we land on the other side. Inspect your expectations to assure you are not assuming connections that are actually temporarily not in touch with one another in the least.

Once we land on the ramp on the other side of the Astro cusp to emerge in the next Astro sign as the Moon goes Direct… then, refreshed, re-engage the Past-Future-Confluence of the perpetual present anew.

Stop

Who 
is to
free the prisoners
when sand sleeps in the eternity of the tilted hourglass.

~ from the Prescient Remembrance: Dialogue of a Vampire poetry collection.

Once the Moon Is Direct

Once Direct we can reconnect our Inner LUNAtic in the next Astro sign and re-engage the creative gearbox. Alternately, if you need something to have the UTMOST discretion or be secret, like planning a surprise Birthday Party, by all means DO start during the Moon’s Void period. It might contribute to the success of the stealth to keep the surprise a surprise. Yes, there are certainly shady ways to apply that, too, though that’s really never been in my Wheelhouse except for in martial arts applications when I explore the power of Silence in motion through whole-body awareness Of the consequence of my feet and toe groundgrabber fingers when I move forward toe-to-heel Instead of the norm of heel to toe when walking or running. In a way the reverse, energetic spin of the motion more clearly generates an awareness of the consequences of actions AS they happen. CRACK goes a twig, and OOPS. Restart.

Take the depth and directness of the clean and stealthy Nothingness of the long Void of Course energy into your weekend. I suggest to team up with surrender rather than hold on. Also, It’s not advised to get caught revving and have the tachometer up to the redline warming things up. You might accidentally sidestep the clutch if your foot slips. Plus, the redline and revving noise just disturbs the Silence, is more than a bit vexatious to the Spirit.

It’s going to be intense, intensely calm. Rather than let down and go amoebic and sloppy in formlessness, there is a lesson in simple Being holding itself together naturally without the crutch of form. Rather than worry or anxiety about falls, instead dial in your focus to your balance of intense things. In one sense it reminds me of the student telling the Buddhist Master they dreamed of falling and falling and getting more and more unsettled. The Master says, Dream that again tonight. This time have a deep knowing that there is no ground. Disengage control. Embrace the experience. Fall farther.

The not-things can get us in trouble all too easily. Personally, I ignore not-things for the most part to more fully focus on the workability so I Don’t waste trouble.

I made a diamond out of my misfortune. ~ Jodorowski’s Chariot speaking

It takes intense heat and pressures to make a diamond. Maybe at the base of infinity within, the heavy darkness get more and more dense, form a weather pattern of singularities that then squeeze density past its Point of Flexure to POOF pop out diamonds that are ejected to the surface.

The flexural strength is stress at failure in bending. It is equal or slightly larger than the failure stress in tension.

During the Void of Course

Focus on established priorities and established launches… even if its simply a walk in the park where you may vividly see and experience something you’ve not seen before. You know? That intensity of ablution tingles when your eyes light up when you discover something that moves you in a cool way.

How can you even up your keel, so that wind the big wind comes you shoot right out in the direction you intended… well, or at least in the range of that direction. There may be some torque that exceeds your grip at first. You;re the driver, though. Dial in to hang in and ride the initial squirrelly movements as your momentum sticks to engage forward movement in big ways.

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Nov 20th, 2020

Star ~ Strength (or Star ~ Justice if that’s the way you roll)

Excellent Birth Cards to surf the celestial groove (Star) of your natural, inner animal voice (Strength) in balance with the scales of the Justice of who you really are. Can you, like a Star, brightly bring these qualities and their consequences to bear within yourself to shine and enliven your identity with a heightened clarity of focus and disciplined sense of seeing?

Your naturally enlightened voice from within is an ally than can serve to bring these brightly out in the open as you continually as you continually integrate your Shadow Parts that live and till the garden of your Place of Creation. How can you engage to enact Your Life, Your Way to dance together WITH Shadow as integrated allies contribute together in harmony being at ease with chaos to inner-communally drive your life force?

One must have a chaos in the heart to birth a dancing star. ~ My Friend Fred (Friedrich Nietzche)

A crucial component of these three Archetypes is that they engage inner contents and the unconscious as useful and factual realities. Psychic and intuitive and imaginative and unconscious contents simply provide more facts from within to sacredly couple with what is out here. Even if these are not your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were. See what new perspectives within yourself you can discover when you do. Have a hard time trusting your intuition? Heck, Mark Twain may have said it best with, Of course truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense. How can you stop making sense and trust your senses with the Strength ~ The Star ~ Justice Tarot Team?

With the Strength ~ The Star ~ Justice Birth Cards, what aspects of your life are uniquely identifiable as yours that can you cycle through to find something juicy to further embrace your alchemy of Self with…? Check out the next 46 seconds of a video for some… hmmm, no spoilers… What chords are struck that resonate with you from this 46sec video? How can you justifiably without sense — simply because you do in a place where reasons are unreasonable — benefit from your Inner Enlightenment or simply Inner Clarity to bring things to full term like the Empress to be birthed into your life and the World?

This Week

It’s a #8 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment Eight of Pentacles

0 min 44 sec

With Mindfulness in troubled times, how do you establish and embrace your established inner light to enhance and align with and in your natural transformation process while you enact a disciplined approach to reverently honor the continual focus of your clarity? Does that question build a sanctuary to enter and explore your sacred Self?

Notice if you begin to feel depletion. If you do, it is often either from mis-spent efforts, slippage, or its time to rest and refuel. Running on fumes will actually expend more energy and tire you out more than running with a full tank.

And maybe think about Mindfulness to help you out. I do not feel that Mindfulness is to empty us out of negative inner influences. More so, that it is for us to face and engage and become besties with our beasties. Danger? Potentially? Sure, sometimes, like life itself. Though, think about it this way. If they harm me, they harm their home. So, I let their storms rage inside when they present themselves. And, as their storm subsides robustly and empathically witnessed by me in reverence Silence, I ask, What is your message?

Once a storm has spent itself, it has often shed itself of all the extraneous marble block parts like Michelangelo liberating David. Then, they can integrate, you might feel a cascade of ablution tingles as they nestle back into wherever their trauma was living in your body as they bring more of You to You with their power as experiential enhancements born of facing your traumas. Or, they don’t integrate, in which case you let them go as if vanished forever, … or, they sidle up right beside you and behind you as another Chthonic Numinosity Light~Shadow Ally of Self. Can’t have too many of those.

Someone asked me last week how long PTSD lasts. A lifetime, was my response. Color that with this, though it lasts a lifetime, it lasts a lifetime in its influence as you transform it over time from Lead to gold, from trauma to treasure. After you face your fears and traumas, work with them, with a Professional is good, they can transform to release and renew you. So, the PTSD part doesn’t really last a lifetime. The PTSD is a point of origin. Its ever-evolving influence as you face and engage and use it is actually what last a lifetime. How can you invest in yourself today? How can you invest in yourself this week? What actions will you take as your initial Self-investment?

I resonate with Thich Nhat Hanh‘s

We do not practice Mindfulness to rid us of anger. We practice Mindfulness to take good care of it. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh.

My Friend Fred

I resonate with that alignment with him.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words and music as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another or out to the world, will you allow the words and music to be yours as if spoken and emanated directly from you and your internal community? As if they are a play about a journey produced by you about you, as you most likely know yourself better than anyone else.

SVRCINA ~ Astronomical

The Birthday Massacre ~ Run

The Birthday Massacre ~ Walking With Strangers (full album)

Pandora on my Sonos played them in that You Might Like way twice last weekend. I saw it like it magnified the 2nd time, an I listened to the message, listened to them again… YES!, is a word, and kinda turned into a another one-word complete sentence verb. Love it when substance embeds in action! Enjoy!

It is at the edge of uncertainty where our most creative inspiration comes alive. ~ Joanna Macy. Personally (me, Jordan), I feel we have always lived at the edge of uncertainty. The world is always about to end in the perpetual present. Though, Verdarluz and Jocelyn Mercado have built a place full of Inner Nature and wonderment and robust experience for action to nourish that birth-n-death perpetual present moment. Check out the soulfully resonant and robust and rockin’ developmental work. Also, here’s a link to Verdarluz CelstiOwl’s Soundcloud music site.

Informed by over 30 years of psychological and spiritual study, her books and teachings guide others to growth and self-empowerment. Red Feather Mind Body Spirit is an imprint of Schiffer Publications who is my publisher.

Also, check out her work at Golden Seeds of Wisdom. I am looking forward to Dr. Raffa’s presentation Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST where she will introduce her new book, The Soul’s Twinswhich will be published on November 17, 2020.  Pre-orders are now being accepted by Amazon.com.

Also, Skip, along with Coeleen Kiebert and Tim Holmes are running the Pre-Election Collective Unconscious & Participation Mystique Project which I am participating in. Take a look.

Coeleen Kiebert ~ Navigating the Unmanifest. My art is the expression of a mysterious, quiet story that has within it a line of truth deeper than I am able to see any other way.  Often, I wonder how others know what’s going on inside of themselves.  How do they know what’s really happening?   How do they cope with the deeper meanings of life without an art form to guide them?  Doing art is the way I search for this inner truth.  The images that appear in the clay lead me to an understanding that is beyond that which I can gain from common reflection.  It is a communication with myself and the language is my art. (c) Coeleen Kiebert. All rights reserved.

Her recent post Through the Looking Glass from The Global Exclaimer is powerful and full-on apt about this racism disease going around more powerfully in this current time where the Civil War is like the EverReady Bunny just going and going and going — like it seethed under the surface for over a century, the internal war that never ended. About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley.

She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence.

These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

SI: 11/13 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 11/13 Serendipity Itinerary

Here is Your November Friday the 13th, 2020 SI. The Moon left Libra at 6:32a today to enter its Void of Course Astro Sign Synapse Journey. It will emerge Direct from the Void Synapse between signs in Scorpio at 11:19a today. The Moon will continue Direct as it moves through Scorpio to dive back under across the Void Synapse at 6:13a on Sunday, 11/15, to emerge Direct again in Sagittarius on 11/15 at 10:47a.

Void of Course is a bit like a mini-Mercury Rx, though instead of the magnetic drag of Mercury appearing to slow, which advises us to downshift, the opposite happens when the Moon goes Void of Course. Rather than drag, there is a slip, a letting go of the Astro Sign connection to disappear across the synapse of the cusp between signs. I feel the Void makes for a wonderful liminal horizon to surf with a foot on both sides, though I mark it in my schedule to not start new projects during it. I allow the flow of projects that have momentum to be worked with as we kind of Evil Knievel float through the air… to then land Direct on the ramp of the next sign, though without all the broken bones. … that we land Direct to reconnect our Inner LUNAtic to the next sign and engage with that creative gearbox.

Of note is that Jupiter joined Pluto in Capricorn yesterday kicking of a major shift in power. And, Mars goes direct to Station this evening, 11/13, at 7:36p. Mars Stationing Direct makes it a grand time to take a leap and be amplified by the intense burst of energy released.

* Note: All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the depth and directness of the Scorpio energies into your weekend, and team them up with the Mars Direct burst. I suggest to hold on. It’s not advised to get caught revving and have the tachometer up to the redline warming things up, and then accidentally sidestep the clutch when your foot slips. It’s going to be intense. Rather than worry or anxiety about falls, instead dial in your focus to your balance of intense things.

The not-things can get us in trouble all too easily. Focus on established priorities and established launches… even if its simply a walk in the park where you may vividly see and experience something you’ve not seen before. You know? That intensity of ablution tingles when your eyes light up when you discover something that moves you in a cool way.

How can you even up your keel, so that wind the big wind comes you shoot right out in the direction you intended… well, or at least in the range of that direction. There may be some torque that exceeds your grip at first. You;re the driver, though. Dial in to hang in and ride the initial squirrelly movements as your momentum sticks to engage forward movement in big ways.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people. ~ Victor Borge

You are not what you say you are going to do. You are what you do. ~ C.G. Jung

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Nov 13th, 2020

Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually spark ideas, cycle them through your process, and brightly bring them to bear with clear and shining identities. Your naturally enlightened voice from within brings them brightly out the shadows of Your Place of Creation and into the world where they can dance together WITH Shadow as integrated allies both driving thei life force.

A crucial component of these three Archetypes is that they engage inner contents and the unconscious as useful and factual realities. Psychic and intuitive and imaginative and unconscious contents simply provide more facts to go with what is out here. Even if these are not your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were. See what new perspectives within yourself you can discover when you do. Have a hard time trusting your intuition? Heck, Mark Twain may have said it best with, Of course truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense. How can you stop making sense and trust your senses with the Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician Tarot Team?

With the Sun ` Wheel ~ Magician Birth Cards, what aspects of your life are uniquely identifiable as yours that can you cycle through to find something juicy to further embrace your alchemy of Self with…? Check out the next 46 seconds of a video for some… hmmm, no spoilers… What chords are struck that resonate with you from this 46sec video? How can you justifiably without sense — simply because you do in a place where reasons are unreasonable — benefit from your Inner Enlightenment or simply Inner Clarity to bring things to full term like the Empress to be birthed into your life and the World?

There is nothing in the caterpillar that tells you it‘s going to be a butterfly.

So, I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times, how do you establish and/or embrace your established inner light to enhance and align with and in your natural transformation(s) while you stick to the point?

Notice if you begin to feel depletion. If you do, it is often either from mis-spent efforts, slippage, or its time to rest and refuel. Running on fumes will actually expend more energy and tire you out more than running with a full tank.

And maybe think about Mindfulness to help you out. I do not feel that Mindfulness is to empty us out of negative inner influences. More so, that it is for us to face and engage and become besties with our beasties. Danger? Potentially? Though, think about it this way. If they harm me, they harm their home. So, I let their storms rage inside when they present themselves. And, as their storm subsides robustly and empathically witnessed by me in reverence Silence, I ask, “What is your message?” Once a storm has spent itself, it has often shed itself of all the extraneous marble block parts like Michelangelo liberating David. Then, they can integrate, you might feel a cascade of ablution tingles as they nestle back into wherever their trauma was living in your body, though bringing more of You with their power enhancing yours now rather than trauma. Or, they don’t integrate, in which case you let them go as if vanished forever, … or, they sidle up right beside and behind you as another Chthonic Numinosity Light~Shadow Ally. Can;t have too many of those.

Someone asked me this week how long PTSD lasts. A lifetime, was my response. Color that with this, though. It lasts a lifetime… in its influence. Though, after you face it, work with it, with a Professional is good, it can transform and be transformed to release and renew you. So, the PTSD doesn’t really last a lifetime, though it’s ever-evolving influence as you face and engage and use it does.

I resonate with Thich Nhat Hanh‘s

We do not practice Mindfulness to rid us of anger. We practice Mindfulness to take good care of it. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh.

My Friend Fred

I resonate with that alignment with him.

Carrie Paris is the Video Producer on my Mystereum Tarot Moments series from 2012-2013. Check out her beautiful site!

Recently

I’m full-on pleased that my article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine Equinox Issue. I’m stoked with the honor and the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin, and Charlotte and the Tarosophy Team! Note that the Tarosophist International Magazine is a members-only magazine with public print to resume soon.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words and music as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another or out to the world, will you allow the words and music to be yours as if spoken and emanated directly from you and your internal community? As if they are a play about a journey produced by you about you, as you most likely know yourself better than anyone else.

Verdarluz ~ Tribal Stomp Ecstatic Dance – Rhythm Sanctuary

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Digital Daggers is one of my new favorite bands along with The Civil Wars. Digital Daggers has a wicked cool way of approaching the Self head on, wonderfully handling psychological and relationship topics with heartfelt grace and a no holds barred intensity.

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for November 13th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, I suggest take 2 sites below that you are familiar with and revisit their current posts.

Where Will Your SI Take You This Week?

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. ~ Riding the cusp between imagination and reality. Her Orphaned Oracle is BORN and now available! Check out the Game Crafter link on her site to purchase!

Verdarluz and Jocelyn Mercado ~ Bridging Dimensions Astrotheology Mystery School. Today, we live at the edge of uncertainty. It is at the edge of uncertainty where our most creative inspiration comes alive. ~ Joanna Macy. Personally (me, Jordan), I feel we have always lived at the edge of uncertainty. The world is always about to end in the perpetual present. Though, Verdarluz and Jocelyn Mercado have built a place full of Inner Nature and wonderment and robust experience for action to nourish that birth-n-death perpetual present moment. Check out the soulfully resonant and robust and rockin’ developmental work. Also, here’s a link to Verdarluz CelstiOwl’s Soundcloud music site.

Dr. Jean Raffa ~ Think Psychologically. Live Spiritually. A former television producer and college professor, Dr. Raffa changed directions in midlife to discover and write about her passions. Informed by over 30 years of psychological and spiritual study, her books and teachings guide others to growth and self-empowerment. Red Feather Mind Body Spirit is an imprint of Schiffer Publications who is my publisher. Love the synchronicity that I found her work in the Carl Jung Depth Psychology Reading Group rather than from my publisher. Pretty cool. Great to discover Jean’s work. Also, check out her work at Golden Seeds of Wisdom. I am looking forward to Dr. Raffa’s presentation Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST where she will introduce her new book, The Soul’s Twinswhich will be published on November 17, 2020.  Pre-orders are now being accepted by Amazon.com.

Dive in to the over 1,200 videos he has produced for a healthy dose of rockin’ness. Well worth the time spent, like the length of a great movie. I always come away with something new, and also usually a further fleshed out perspective. Also, Skip, along with Coeleen Kiebert and Tim Holmes are running the Pre-Election Collective Unconscious & Participation Mystique Project which I am participating in. Take a look.

Coeleen Kiebert ~ Navigating the Unmanifest. My art is the expression of a mysterious, quiet story that has within it a line of truth deeper than I am able to see any other way.  Often, I wonder how others know what’s going on inside of themselves.  How do they know what’s really happening?   How do they cope with the deeper meanings of life without an art form to guide them?  Doing art is the way I search for this inner truth.  The images that appear in the clay lead me to an understanding that is beyond that which I can gain from common reflection.  It is a communication with myself and the language is my art. (c) Coeleen Kiebert. All rights reserved.

Tim Holmes ~ Tim Holmes Studio. A passionate artist with vision and an actionable mission consistently doing something with it for the good of the Self and the world. Hearing His Own Voice: A Life of Sculptor Tim Holmes. By Brian D’Ambrosio. Also, explore Tim’s Jung And Alive Meaning Finder.

Please share his recent Black in AI 2020 Call for Papers post to magnetize others who might not have otherwise been aware of the opportunity to advance the AI (Artificial Intelligence) community.

Author Melissa Crismon ~ Oceans of Love. Melissa is the author of the MerSea series about a conservationist mermaid. Painting in her mom’s studio, studying modern dance, and playing the pedal harp informed her childhood. A bachelor’s degree in visual and performing arts made sense.

About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters.

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Nov 6th, 2020

World ~ Hanged Man ~ Empress

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace transformation in a very matter of fact manner as you carry things to full term with your naturally enlightened voice to bring them brightly out of the shadows of Your Place of Creation and into the world. A crucial component of these three Archetypes’ is that they engage inner contents and the unconscious as useful and factual realities. Psychic and intuitive and imaginative and unconscious contents simply provide more facts to go with what is out here. Even if these are not your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were. See what new perspectives within yourself you can discover when you do. Have a hard time trusting your intuition? Heck, Mark Twain may have said it best with, Of course truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense. How can you stop making sense and trust your senses?

With the World ~ Hanged Man ~ Empress Birth Cards, what aspects of your life are uniquely identifiable as yours that can you cycle through to find something juicy to further embrace your alchemy of Self with…? Check out the next 46 seconds of a video for some… hmmm, no spoilers… What chords are struck that resonate with you from this 46sec video? How can you justifiably without sense — simply because you do in a place where reasons are unreasonable — benefit from your Inner Enlightenment or simply Inner Clarity to bring things to full term like the Empress to be birthed into your life and the World?

There is nothing in the caterpillar that tells you it‘s going to be a butterfly.

This Week

It’s a #3 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 3 of Pentacles

0 min 59 sec

and some Friday fun for you… and thanks Carrie Paris, my Producer in 2013! This may be the BEST use of an Espresso Maker part ever…

Mystereum Tarot Moment with the 2 of Swords

1 min 14 sec

So, I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times, how do you establish and/or embrace your established inner light to enhance and align with and in your natural transformation(s) while you stick to the point? How do you dial in to focus to refresh your perspective and see something so big and so there you may have been missing it hiding in plain sight in a blind spot of expectation? What blind spot can you identify today? Once there, what treasure unfolds? What personal message do you unpack from deep within yourself that has its nose poking up in your garden? — Yes, that is a Spring metaphor… this year I am adamantly against winter. Cold… Cold just doesn’t feel very good right now. Oh well, I’ll unpack the winter coats and clean them so they are ready. grumblegrumblegrumble, says Grog my Inner Caveman Marketing Director. Grog no like cold. Grog say cold no fun on toes many too much times. 🙂

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

My Friend Fred

I say Fred’s chaos = Nature itself, and one’s natural and immutable Nature of Self.

What messages of unique new births in your life do the World~Hanged Man~Empress have for you today with the Moon in the Fire sign of Leo? How can you aspirate your fire to step up the effectiveness of its heat? A loose and unfocused blow torch makes no cuts, just wastes the gas. How can you tune and focus to dial in your fire today and through the weekend?

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do you express a fluid fluency with transformational energies in real time on the fly? Record yourself speaking about The World ~ Hanged Man ~ Empress. Close your eyes and play yourself back afterwards. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear IN your voice even more than what words you say or sounds you make. What do you hear. How does that feel? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you about where you are right at this very moment in the perpetual present?

What about the flow of what you hear in your voice? Dance like you’re the Sun itself, click record, and experience the exquisite magic in your orbits of your community within and about. If you’re more visual, doodle like no one is watching. Maybe even also you if you doodle with your eyes closed. No matter if the pencil/pen/brush/marker/charcoal,stick slides off the paper. Heck, if it does, maybe you just went off trail inside into some new Nature territory where good stuff tends to make their homes.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Outside and look in the window… look into the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 1min 14sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What magic orbits around me? How and when am I most magnetic with things that resonate with me? How do I allow this inform your current perspective? What will I do about it today? Some things are wheels, some things are cogs. I do not demean cogs as less than. A cog functions under intense temperatures and pressures all the while as it continually keeps engaged to gear in without a slip. And, if it does slip, it can often be re-tooled to be put back in place. And, maybe it could also mean it would like a rest more periodically than it currently gets. Rest and subtle actions. Rest and subtle actions and the caterpillar becomes the butterfly and does not overheat the transformation.

Recently

I’m full-on pleased that my article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine Equinox Issue.

Note that the Tarosophist International Magazine is a members-only magazine with public print to resume soon.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words and music as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another or out to the world, will you allow the words and music to be yours as if spoken and emanated directly from you and your internal community? As if they are a play about a journey produced by you about you, as you most likely know yourself better than anyone else… or at least have the keys to access that as being potentially so. Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside you with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyric authorship inward and speak them yourself as if they originated from you to you. When you resonate with something, isn’t that the Collective Unconscious feeling we all get? That is certainly a question. I feel so more often than not, that connection when things cascade ablution tingles through my body like subtly distributed Astro-orgasms cleansing and nourishing as they flow through. What’s your take on that? I’d love to hear how you express what you feel when something resonates with you.

Verdarluz ~ Tribal Stomp Ecstatic Dance – Rhythm Sanctuary

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Digital Daggers is one of my new favorite bands along with The Civil Wars. Digital Daggers has a wicked cool way of approaching the Self head on, wonderfully handling psychological and relationship topics with heartfelt grace and a no holds barred intensity.

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for November 6th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own, and 2 cycles revved up the tach to downshift and feel the drag like the centrifugal G-forces when I jet out of a turn onto the straightaway in harmonic balance where the car has no resistance… just climbs the speed as all comes into focus. All similar, each unique. That’s my image. What’s yours? Have you raised your head over the chaos to harmonize your fluctuations in resonance with your natural Nature?

I suggest take 2 sites below that you are familiar with and revisit their current post(s). Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble as diamonds take some time and intense pressure to form. The stars and planets are menacing only if you let them be. Mercury Rx? (Retrograde). Simply downshift and re-calibrate to attune yourself and adjust your pace and how you rev and drive the directions you do,

Planets, like Tarot cards, are magical allies when you OWN the magnetism of how their movement relationships influence things. Good? Bad? Nah. Workability. I find there’s always workability when you adjust your perspective to align or intentionally misalign. I don;lt go with the flow as only dead fish go with the flow. I prefer fluid fluency and to swim upstream. Besides just being a great workout, stuff tends to come TO you then.

Where Will Your SI Take You This Week?

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Verdarluz and Jocelyn Mercado ~ Bridging Dimensions Astrotheology Mystery School. Today, we live at the edge of uncertainty. It is at the edge of uncertainty where our most creative inspiration comes alive. ~ Joanna Macy. Personally (me, Jordan), I feel we have always lived at the edge of uncertainty. The world is always about to end in the perpetual present. Though, Verdarluz and Jocelyn Mercado have built a place full of Inner Nature and wonderment and robust experience for action to nourish that birth-n-death perpetual present moment. Check out the soulfully resonant and robust and rockin’ developmental work. Also, here’s a link to Verdarluz CelstiOwl’s Soundcloud music site.

Dr. Jean Raffa ~ Think Psychologically. Live Spiritually. A former television producer and college professor, Dr. Raffa changed directions in midlife to discover and write about her passions. Informed by over 30 years of psychological and spiritual study, her books and teachings guide others to growth and self-empowerment. Red Feather Mind Body Spirit is an imprint of Schiffer Publications who is my publisher. Love the synchronicity that I found her work in the Carl Jung Depth Psychology Reading Group rather than from my publisher. Pretty cool. Great to discover Jean’s work. Also, check out her work at Golden Seeds of Wisdom. I am looking forward to Dr. Raffa’s presentation Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST where she will introduce her new book, The Soul’s Twinswhich will be published on November 17, 2020.  Pre-orders are now being accepted by Amazon.com.

Dive in to the over 1,200 videos he has produced for a healthy dose of rockin’ness. Well worth the time spent, like the length of a great movie. I always come away with something new, and also usually a further fleshed out perspective. Also, Skip, along with Coeleen Kiebert and Tim Holmes are running the Pre-Election Collective Unconscious & Participation Mystique Project which I am participating in. Take a look.

Coeleen Kiebert ~ Navigating the Unmanifest. My art is the expression of a mysterious, quiet story that has within it a line of truth deeper than I am able to see any other way.  Often, I wonder how others know what’s going on inside of themselves.  How do they know what’s really happening?   How do they cope with the deeper meanings of life without an art form to guide them?  Doing art is the way I search for this inner truth.  The images that appear in the clay lead me to an understanding that is beyond that which I can gain from common reflection.  It is a communication with myself and the language is my art. (c) Coeleen Kiebert. All rights reserved.

Tim Holmes ~ Tim Holmes Studio. A passionate artist with vision and an actionable mission consistently doing something with it for the good of the Self and the world. Hearing His Own Voice: A Life of Sculptor Tim Holmes. By Brian D’Ambrosio. Also, explore Tim’s Jung And Alive Meaning Finder.

Please share his recent Black in AI 2020 Call for Papers post to magnetize others who might not have otherwise been aware of the opportunity to advance the AI (Artificial Intelligence) community.

Author Melissa Crismon ~ Oceans of Love. Melissa is the author of the MerSea series about a conservationist mermaid.

Martha Ann Kennedy’s Blog ~ I’m A Writer, Yes, I Am! Her recent post Through the Looking Glass from The Global Exclaimer is powerful and full-on apt about this racism disease going around more powerfully in this current time where the Civil War is like the EverReady Bunny just going and going and going — like it seethed under the surface for over a century, the internal war that never ended. About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley.

Joy Vernon ~ Completely Joyous. Tarot & Reiki. Bookmarked for this week as there’s an ICANN issue pending. I’ve been there. I hate it when that periodic email required to confirm your URL ownership with ICANN for your website gets buried and lost. I’ll most likely have an operable link here next week if not before.

Benebell Wen ~ author + reader. Such a wonderful discipline of the ritual in Benebelle’s actioanable and exploratory process of deck creation of her 3rd edition of SKT. Check out Benebelle’s site. She is an engaged and informed artist fully immersed Actively in The Work and also in the not-knowing, and building value when she emerges her creations.

Robert Ruiz ~ Robert Ruiz Art. Robert Ruiz is an artist from Brownsville, TX, who is also a Master of Fine Art Candidate at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley with Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Drawing and New Media, from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He is also currently the Art Director at the Carlotta Petrina Museum and Artist liaison for the City of Brownsville Mural Program. Check out his work.

Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience. Wonderful quotes and perspective here. A great daily.

Gabriela M. ~ Short Prose Fiction. Author of the Year (2019) at Spillword Press NYC. You can swim in these words. Take a dip.

RoadtirementTraveling and retired. This couple and their experiences and travels and family… just make me smile. Real and robust for being themselves. Plus, they’re gardeners. What ever could go wrong? Great sense of humor and wonderful outlook on life. Woo Hoo shout-out to the Roadtirement Etsy shop! Check it out.

Tutu’s edible logic ~ Food makes sense. Exquisite and intelligent and nourishing and informative.

Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat and a great perspective.

Delusional Bubble ~ Life is a bubble, Make it as delusional as possible. Travel the world. I feel Rick Steves is cool, and he’s also not the only game in town.

Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

SI: 10/30 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 10/30 Serendipity Itinerary

Here is Your October 30Th, 2020 SI with the Moon Having gone Direct in to Aries 10/28 at 4:45am. The Moon went into its Psychic Synapse Void of Course from Aries at 12:12pm today, 10/30. And, it went Direct in Taurus today at 5:19pm. The Moon will make its journey to Full in Taurus through this wonderful Lift The Veils When They Are Thin Halloween Time until it once again dives into its Void of Course Astro Psychic Synapse Sunday at 9:29pm on November 1st. The Full Moon officially occurs at 10:49am EST. And, it is of note that for the 1st time since 1944 The Full Moon occurs when Uranus is conjunct Taurus.

* Note: All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the energetic air and earth qualities of Uranus (air) and Taurus (earth) today and tomorrow to engage in what I call Cloistering Your Inner House. Uranus is super-comfortable in Taurus, and Taurus enjoys the heady shake-up. Taurus often has a sold house that can get a bit too solid. The Uranian Shaker Upper will enter the Taurean House and open it up like a Greek home with an inner courtyard open to the sky. Or, like at Mont St Michel in France, open up a cloister at the top. I consider the cloister to be an architectural Crown chakra. How can you amplify the air and earth qualities in your life to powerfully aspirate your engine and open up to the sky inside?

I also consider Uranus to be an Architect here that you can commission for an internal remodel, and Taurus to be the Client’s home of your Self. If your inner Client Priorities aren’t to go as far as reconfiguring with this remodel to have an inner courtyard or cloister, Uranus as Architect may step up and say, “Babe, understood, though at the very least we need to add a big ole skylight here to clear the Inner Air and bring in more Inner Light. I suggest we locate it in the center of your abode.”

So, I ask, What is the center of your Inner Home for you? How can you open it up to release pent-up energies, expand to new heights within, and feel your Crown chakra as a Place of Power that is only amplified when you stand in the freed up center of your home?

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Oct 30th, 2020

XVII Star ~ VIII Justice (Strength if you roll with Strength as VIII)

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace transformation in a very matter of fact manner with your celestial groove tapping your natural, inner animal voice with epic is-what-it-is balance. A crucial component of these Archetypes’ realities are that they engage with inner contents and the unconscious as a useful fact. Psychic and intuitive and imaginative and unconscious contents simply provide more facts to go with what is out here. Even if these are not your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were. See what new perspectives within yourself you can discover when you do.

With the Star ~ Strength (or, Justice) Birth Cards, what aspects of your life are uniquely identifiable as yours that can you cycle through to find something juicy to further embrace your alchemy of Self with…? Check out the next 46 (45) seconds of a video for some… hmmm, no spoilers… What chords are struck that resonate with you from this 46sec video? How can your Star and Strength justifiably benefit from your Inner Sun with a cloister of Inner Courtyard or even something as mundane as a skylight?

There is nothing in the caterpillar that tells you it‘s going to be a butterfly.

This Week

It’s a #8 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 8 of Pentacles

0 min 44 sec

and some Friday fun for you… and thanks Carrie Paris! This may be the BEST use of an Espresso Maker part ever…

1 min 06 sec

So, I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times, how do you establish and/or embrace your established inner light to enhance and align with and in your natural transformation(s) while you stick to the point? Is transformation one of the key drivers in the heartbeat of beauty? How about an Inner Remodel project? Where does your oculus go? How does you Crown chakra already do this for you naturally?

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

My Friend Fred

I say Fred’s chaos = Nature itself, and one’s natural and immutable Nature of Self.

What messages of unique breathing room do The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician have for you today with the Moon in the Air sign of Aquarius? How can you aspirate an idea with that to step up its effectiveness.

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do you express a fluid fluency with transformational energies in real time on the fly? Record yourself speaking about The Star ~ Strength cards + Justice. Close your eyes and play yourself back afterwards. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear IN your voice even more than what words you say or sounds you make. What do you hear. How does that feel? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you about where you are right at this very moment in the perpetual present?

What about the flow of what you hear in your voice? Dance like you’re the Sun itself, click record, and experience the exquisite magic in your orbits of your community within and about. If you’re more visual, doodle like no one is watching. Maybe even also you if you doodle with your eyes closed. No matter if the pencil/pen/brush/marker/charcoal,stick slides off the paper. Heck, if it does, maybe you just went off trail inside into some new Nature territory where good stuff tends to make their homes.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Outside and look in the window… look into the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 0min 44sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What magic orbits around me? How and when am I most magnetic with things that resonate with me? How do you allow this inform your current perspective? What will you do about it? Some things are wheels, some things are cogs. I do not demean cogs as less than. A cog functions under intense temperatures and pressures all the while as it continually keeps engaged to gear in without a slip. And, if it does slip, it can often be re-tooled to be put back in place. And, maybe it could also mean it would like a rest more periodically than its getting to no overheat.

Recently

I’m full-on pleased that my article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine Equinox Issue. I’m stoked with the honor and the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin, and Charlotte and the Tarosophy Team! Note that the Tarosophist International Magazine is a members-only magazine with public print to resume soon.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

Digital Daggers ~ In Flames

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Digital Daggers is one of my new favorite bands along with The Civil Wars. Digital Daggers has a wicked cool way of approaching the Self head on, wonderfully handling psychological and relationship topics with heartfelt grace and a no holds barred intensity.

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 30th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own. All similar, each unique. My image is splashing in the water. Just splash and splash and let the splash be… unless you’re in Oz or South Africa. Then, do that in a pool. I wouldn’t want you to hear dangerous cello music in the ocean. Du Nuh…

I suggest take 2 sites you are familiar with and revisit their current post(s). Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble as diamonds take some time and intense pressure to form. The stars and planets are menacing only if you let them be. Mercury Rx? (Retrograde). Simply downshift and re-calibrate to attune yourself and adjust your pace and how you rev and drive the directions you do,

Planets, like Tarot cards, are magical allies when you OWN the magnetism of how their movement relationships influence things. Good? Bad? Nah. Workability. I find there’s always workability when you adjust your perspective to align or intentionally misalign. I don;lt go with the flow as only dead fish go with the flow. I prefer fluid fluency and to swim upstream. Besides just being a great workout, stuff tends to come TO you then.

Where Will Your SI Take You This Week?

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. ~ Riding the cusp between imagination and reality. Her Orphaned Oracle is BORN and now available! Check out the Game Crafter link on her site to purchase! She also has Waxtober this month and rockin’ ramblings and Rantras and musings with no pulled punches. There are lots of exquisite surprises along the way. THIS is a site to watch.

Dr. Jean Raffa ~ Think Psychologically. Live Spiritually. A former television producer and college professor, Dr. Raffa changed directions in midlife to discover and write about her passions. Informed by over 30 years of psychological and spiritual study, her books and teachings guide others to growth and self-empowerment. Red Feather Mind Body Spirit is an imprint of Schiffer Publications who is my publisher. Love the synchronicity that I found her work in the Carl Jung Depth Psychology Reading Group rather than from my publisher. Pretty cool. Great to discover Jean’s work. Also, check out her work at Golden Seeds of Wisdom. I am looking forward to Dr. Raffa’s presentation Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST where she will introduce her new book, The Soul’s Twinswhich will be published on November 17, 2020.  Pre-orders are now being accepted by Amazon.com.

Dive in to the over 1,200 videos he has produced for a healthy dose of rockin’ness. Well worth the time spent, like the length of a great movie. I always come away with something new, and also usually a further fleshed out perspective. Also, Skip, along with Coeleen Kiebert and Tim Holmes are running the Pre-Election Collective Unconscious & Participation Mystique Project which I am participating in. Take a look.

Coeleen Kiebert ~ Navigating the Unmanifest. My art is the expression of a mysterious, quiet story that has within it a line of truth deeper than I am able to see any other way.  Often, I wonder how others know what’s going on inside of themselves.  How do they know what’s really happening?   How do they cope with the deeper meanings of life without an art form to guide them?  Doing art is the way I search for this inner truth.  The images that appear in the clay lead me to an understanding that is beyond that which I can gain from common reflection.  It is a communication with myself and the language is my art. (c) Coeleen Kiebert. All rights reserved.

Tim Holmes ~ Tim Holmes Studio. A passionate artist with vision and an actionable mission consistently doing something with it for the good of the Self and the world. Hearing His Own Voice: A Life of Sculptor Tim Holmes. By Brian D’Ambrosio. Also, explore Tim’s Jung And Alive Meaning Finder.

Painting in her mom’s studio, studying modern dance, and playing the pedal harp informed her childhood. A bachelor’s degree in visual and performing arts made sense.

Martha Ann Kennedy’s Blog ~ I’m A Writer, Yes, I Am! Her recent post Through the Looking Glass from The Global Exclaimer is powerful and full-on apt about this racism disease going around more powerfully in this current time where the Civil War is like the EverReady Bunny just going and going and going — like it seethed under the surface for over a century, the internal war that never ended. About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley. All my life, I’ve been a writer. Sometimes, I’m also a painter, but I am always a hiker.

Scott Spillman ~ The Point Magazine. New article, Charismatic Models.(My words follow, these are not Scott’s or the Magazine’s) I loathe politics as the great irony of our time, maybe any time when people who are not personally sovereign can be ruled simply by the sniff of a suggestion. This, is not that.

Joy Vernon ~ Completely Joyous. Tarot & Reiki. Bookmarked for this week as there’s an ICANN issue pending. I’ve been there. I hate it when that periodic email required to confirm your URL ownership with ICANN for your website gets buried and lost. I’ll most likely have an operable link here next week if not before.

Benebell Wen ~ author + reader. Such a wonderful discipline of the ritual in Benebelle’s actioanable and exploratory process of deck creation of her 3rd edition of SKT. Check out Benebelle’s site. She is an engaged and informed artist fully immersed Actively in The Work and also in the not-knowing, and building value when she emerges her creations.

Robert Ruiz ~ Robert Ruiz Art. Robert Ruiz is an artist from Brownsville, TX, who is also a Master of Fine Art Candidate at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley with Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Drawing and New Media, from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He is also currently the Art Director at the Carlotta Petrina Museum and Artist liaison for the City of Brownsville Mural Program. Check out his work.

Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience. Wonderful quotes and perspective here. A great daily.

Gabriela M. ~ Short Prose Fiction. Author of the Year (2019) at Spillword Press NYC. You can swim in these words. Take a dip.

RoadtirementTraveling and retired. This couple and their experiences and travels and family… just make me smile. Real and robust for being themselves. Plus, they’re gardeners. What ever could go wrong? Great sense of humor and wonderful outlook on life. Woo Hoo shout-out to the Roadtirement Etsy shop! Check it out.

Tutu’s edible logic ~ Food makes sense. Exquisite and intelligent and nourishing and informative.

Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat and a great perspective.

Delusional Bubble ~ Life is a bubble, Make it as delusional as possible. Travel the world. I feel Rick Steves is cool, and he’s also not the only game in town.

Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Oct 23rd, 2020

Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace transformation in a very matter of fact manner. A crucial component of their reality is that they engage with inner contents and the unconscious in factual ways as easily as they interact with people at a get-together. Psychic and unconscious contents are simply more facts to go with what is out here. Even if these are not your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were. See what new perspectives you can discover.

With The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician what aspects of your life that are uniquely identifiable as yours can you cycle through to find something juicy to further embrace your alchemy of Self with…? Check out the next 46 (45) seconds of a video for some… hmmm, no spoilers… What chords are struck that resonate with you from this 46sec video?

This Week

It’s a #1 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment Ace of Pentacles

0 min 52 (51) sec

and some Friday fun for you… and thanks Carrie Paris! This may be the BEST use of an Espresso Maker part ever…

1 min 06 sec

So again I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times, how do you establish and/or embrace your established inner light to enhance and align with and in your natural transformation(s) while you stick to the point? Is transformation one of the key drivers in the heartbeat of beauty?

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

My Friend Fred

I say Fred’s chaos = Nature itself, and one’s natural and immutable Nature of Self.

What messages of unique breathing room do The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician have for you today with the Moon in the Air sign of Aquarius? How can you aspirate an idea with that to step up its effectiveness.

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do you express a fluid fluency with transformational energies in real time on the fly? Record yourself speaking about The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician. Close your eyes and play yourself back afterwards. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear IN your voice even more than what words you say or sounds you make. What do you hear. How does that feel? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you about where you are right at this very moment in the perpetual present?

What about the flow of what you hear in your voice? Dance like you’re the Sun itself, click record, and experience the exquisite magic in your orbits of your community within and about. If you’re more visual, doodle like no one is watching. Maybe even also you if you doodle with your eyes closed. No matter if the pencil/pen/brush/marker/charcoal,stick slides off the paper. Heck, if it does, maybe you just went off trail inside into some new Nature territory where good stuff tends to make their homes.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Outside and look in the window… look into the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 0min 46sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What magic orbits around me? How and when am I most magnetic with things that resonate with me? How do you allow this inform your current perspective? What will you do about it? Some things are wheels, some things are cogs. I do not demean cogs as less than. A cog functions under intense temperatures and pressures all the while as it continually keeps engaged to gear in without a slip. And, if it does slip, it can often be re-tooled to be put back in place. And, maybe it could also mean it would like a rest more periodically than its getting to no overheat.

The Tortoise & The Hare

The Tortoise and the Hare. Has the Hare ever won? Nope. The Hare just stacks manicy on top of anxiety manicy one after the other like a Dagwood sandwich with his false sense of urgency as he bounces all over like a confused Pachinko ball.

The Tortoise? He experiences every step, and every wonderful sensation between each step. I gather he might even stop at some strange and thick white line painted across his road while crowds cheer all around and he, How cool. Will you just look at all those divets in the asphalt highlighted by this cool white band across the road? With a wry smil he might even swing his head around to the Hare that bounces around everywhere with, HEY HARE! What IS this beautiful thing? Ha! Just kidding as he puts his foot down on that cool, white line. WINNER!

And, the Tortoises smiles, steeps in the moment, and finds some cool cats to experience stuff with. The Tortoise might not ever care about winning, and always does. The Hare? Most likely ONLY cares about winning, and consequently never does. Experience wins out here, huh? Is the Tortoise an experience Magician?

Recently

I’m full-on pleased that my article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine Equinox Issue. I’m stoked with the honor and the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin, and Charlotte and the Tarosophy Team! Note that the Tarosophist International Magazine is a members-only magazine with public print to resume soon.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

Digital Daggers ~ In Flames

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Digital Daggers is one of my new favorite bands along with The Civil Wars. Digital Daggers has a wicked cool way of approaching the Self head on, wonderfully handling psychological and relationship topics with heartfelt grace and a no holds barred intensity.

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 23rd

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own. All similar, each unique. My image is splashing in the water. Just splash and splash and let the splash be… unless you’re in Oz or South Africa. Then, do that in a pool. I wouldn’t want you to hear dangerous cello music in the ocean. Du Nuh…

I suggest take 2 sites you are familiar with and revisit their current post(s). Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble as diamonds take some time and intense pressure to form. The stars and planets are menacing only if you let them be. Mercury Rx? (Retrograde). Simply downshift and re-calibrate to attune yourself and adjust your pace and how you rev and drive the directions you do,

Planets, like Tarot cards, are magical allies when you OWN the magnetism of how their movement relationships influence things. Good? Bad? Nah. Workability. I find there’s always workability when you adjust your perspective to align or intentionally misalign. I don;lt go with the flow as only dead fish go with the flow. I prefer fluid fluency and to swim upstream. Besides just being a great workout, stuff tends to come TO you then.

Where Will Your SI Take You This Week?

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. ~ Riding the cusp between imagination and reality. Her Orphaned Oracle is BORN and now available! Check out the Game Crafter link on her site to purchase! She also has Waxtober this month and rockin’ ramblings and Rantras and musings with no pulled punches. There are lots of exquisite surprises along the way. THIS is a site to watch.

Dr. Jean Raffa ~ Think Psychologically. Live Spiritually. A former television producer and college professor, Dr. Raffa changed directions in midlife to discover and write about her passions. Informed by over 30 years of psychological and spiritual study, her books and teachings guide others to growth and self-empowerment. Red Feather Mind Body Spirit is an imprint of Schiffer Publications who is my publisher. Love the synchronicity that I found her work in the Carl Jung Depth Psychology Reading Group rather than from my publisher. Pretty cool. Great to discover Jean’s work. Also, check out her work at Golden Seeds of Wisdom. I am looking forward to Dr. Raffa’s presentation Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST where she will introduce her new book, The Soul’s Twinswhich will be published on November 17, 2020.  Pre-orders are now being accepted by Amazon.com.

Donald L. (Skip) Conover ~ is creating Videos for laymen about the Collected Works of Dr. Carl G.Jung. Founder of the C.G. Jung Depth Psychology Reading Group. Dive in to the over 1,200 videos he has produced for a healthy dose of rockin’ness. Well worth the time spent, like the length of a great movie. I always come away with something new, and also usually a further fleshed out perspective. Also, Skip, along with Coeleen Kiebert and Tim Holmes are running the Pre-Election Collective Unconscious & Participation Mystique Project which I am participating in. Take a look.

Coeleen Kiebert ~ Navigating the Unmanifest. My art is the expression of a mysterious, quiet story that has within it a line of truth deeper than I am able to see any other way.  Often, I wonder how others know what’s going on inside of themselves.  How do they know what’s really happening?   How do they cope with the deeper meanings of life without an art form to guide them?  Doing art is the way I search for this inner truth.  The images that appear in the clay lead me to an understanding that is beyond that which I can gain from common reflection.  It is a communication with myself and the language is my art. (c) Coeleen Kiebert. All rights reserved.

Tim Holmes ~ Tim Holmes Studio. A passionate artist with vision and an actionable mission consistently doing something with it for the good of the Self and the world. Hearing His Own Voice: A Life of Sculptor Tim Holmes. By Brian D’Ambrosio. Also, explore Tim’s Jung And Alive Meaning Finder.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog. Please share his recent Black in AI 2020 Call for Papers post to magnetize others who might not have otherwise been aware of the opportunity to advance the AI (Artificial Intelligence) community.

Author Melissa Crismon ~ Oceans of Love. Melissa is the author of the MerSea series about a conservationist mermaid. Painting in her mom’s studio, studying modern dance, and playing the pedal harp informed her childhood. A bachelor’s degree in visual and performing arts made sense. From angelic harpist to romance author, Melissa began writing as a theatre reviewer for local and online media.Her Golden-State-of-the-Art Blog started out as a California arts blog that covered a lot of theatre, but rolls with the punches and has expanded to the vegan lifestyle.

J. Gary Sparks ~ Jungian Analyst. Diplomate, C.G. Jung Institute, Zürich. Through his website he makes resources available for learning and teaching Jungian psychology at all levels. the link is to his wonderful welcome page, and you’ll find his Home Page link at the bottom of the Welcome page.

Martha Ann Kennedy’s Blog ~ I’m A Writer, Yes, I Am! Her recent post Through the Looking Glass from The Global Exclaimer is powerful and full-on apt about this racism disease going around more powerfully in this current time where the Civil War is like the EverReady Bunny just going and going and going — like it seethed under the surface for over a century, the internal war that never ended. About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley. All my life, I’ve been a writer. Sometimes, I’m also a painter, but I am always a hiker.

It starts with a wicked cool image, and keeps going from there.

New article, Charismatic Models.(My words follow, these are not Scott’s or the Magazine’s) I loathe politics as the great irony of our time, maybe any time when people who are not personally sovereign can be ruled simply by the sniff of a suggestion. This, is not that.

Joy Vernon ~ Completely Joyous. Tarot & Reiki. Bookmarked for this week as there’s an ICANN issue pending. I’ve been there. I hate it when that periodic email required to confirm your URL ownership with ICANN for your website gets buried and lost. I’ll most likely have an operable link here next week if not before.

Benebell Wen ~ author + reader. Such a wonderful discipline of the ritual in Benebelle’s actioanable and exploratory process of deck creation of her 3rd edition of SKT. Check out Benebelle’s site. She is an engaged and informed artist fully immersed Actively in The Work and also in the not-knowing, and building value when she emerges her creations.

Robert Ruiz ~ Robert Ruiz Art. Robert Ruiz is an artist from Brownsville, TX, who is also a Master of Fine Art Candidate at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley with Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Drawing and New Media, from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He is also currently the Art Director at the Carlotta Petrina Museum and Artist liaison for the City of Brownsville Mural Program. Check out his work.

Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience. Wonderful quotes and perspective here. A great daily.

Gabriela M. ~ Short Prose Fiction. Author of the Year (2019) at Spillword Press NYC. You can swim in these words. Take a dip.

RoadtirementTraveling and retired. This couple and their experiences and travels and family… just make me smile. Real and robust for being themselves. Plus, they’re gardeners. What ever could go wrong? Great sense of humor and wonderful outlook on life. Woo Hoo shout-out to the Roadtirement Etsy shop! Check it out.

Tutu’s edible logic ~ Food makes sense. Exquisite and intelligent and nourishing and informative.

Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat and a great perspective.

Delusional Bubble ~ Life is a bubble, Make it as delusional as possible. Travel the world. I feel Rick Steves is cool, and he’s also not the only game in town.

Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

What’s your favorite space where you feel a sense of place in your home? Fetch wood and carry water so to speak for that place. How can you amplify it in powerfully simple ways?

Nevermind mastery. Mastery leads to further discovery. Libra can help you sidestep form and dial more in to the feel.

Feeling is a mantra that aligns with the weekend this week.

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Oct 16th, 2020

Hanged Man ~ Empress

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace transformation in a very matter of fact manner. A crucial component of their reality is that they engage with inner contents and the unconscious in factual ways as easily as they interact with people at a get-together. Psychic and unconscious contents are simply more facts to go with what is out here. Even if these are not your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were. See what new perspectives you can discover.

With The Hanged Man ~ Empress, Chariot style, what intensely natural, internal, transformative energies that oppose one another In their alchemy will you harmonize to harness for your Higher Good today and this weekend?

There is nothing in the caterpillar that tells you it‘s going to be a butterfly.

This Week

It’s a #3 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 3 of Pentacles

0 min 59 sec

and

2 min 17 sec

I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times, how do you establish and/or embrace your established inner light to enhance and align with and in your natural transformation(s)? Is transformation one of the heartbeats of beauty?

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

My Friend Fred

I say Fred’s chaos = Nature itself, and one’s natural and immutable Nature of Self.

What messages do The Hanged Man ~ Empress gift you?

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do you express a fluid fluency with transformational energies in real time on the fly? Record yourself speaking about The Hanged Man ~ Empress. Close your eyes and play yourself back Afterwards. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear even more than what you said. What do you hear. How do you feel to yourself? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you? What about the flow? Dance like you’re birthing a star, click record, and speak fluently like no one’s listening. Share what happens if you like. If you’re more visual, doodle like no one is watching.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Outside and look in the window… look into the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 0min 59’sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What transformations do I craft from the intense pressures in my life? How do you allow this inform your perspective? What will you do about it? Cogs are not less than. A cog functions under intense temperatures and pressures all the while engaging to gear in without slip. And, if it slips, it can often be re-tooled to be put back in place.

Recently

I’m full-on pleased that my article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine Equinox Issue. I’m stoked with the honor and the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin Charlotte and the Tarosophy Team! Note that the Tarosophist International Magazine is a members-only magazine with public print to resume soon.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

SVRCINA ~ Battlefield

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 16th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own. All similar, each unique. My image is splashing in the water. Just splash and splash and let the splash be… unless you’re in Oz or South Africa. Then, do that in a pool. I wouldn’t want you to hear dangerous cello music in the ocean. Du Nuh…

I suggest take 2 sites you are familiar with and revisit their current post(s). Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble Diamonds take some time it seems. The stars and planets are menacing only if you let them be. They are magical allies if you OWN them, especially when they are intense. How can you partner with your intensity to surf your own celestial grooves of transformation this week?. I suggest to not take shit from the stars this week. It’s YOUR world. Turn around and see where they are coming from. Your perspective might shift to your benefit as they partner with you, even if at odds. There’s still a relationship in that scenario as well. Breathe out and take out your broom to clean sweep anxiety out! Fear is like Inner Iolite, the Nordic Compass. Use it as awareness as your adaptability drives transformation. And, please do take care not to let anxiety hijack your Fear Awareness Radar Tool from you and jack it into being afraid. SHIELDS UP for the rest of the month! October 2020 Astro is quite a ride. Make it so! And, here’s a 3rd Astro link I value. Susan Miller, Rob Brezsny, and Verdarluz are three Astro voices I work with to complement mine as I Chart course.

I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

SI: 10/9 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 10/9 Serendipity Itinerary

Your October 9th, 2020 SI, with the Moon Direct in Cancer since 11:45A 10/8. The Moon will continue its travel through Cancer to enter its next Void of Course Astro Sign Lunar Synapse Saturday 10/10 at 12:04p and emerge Direct in Leo at 8:24p 10/10. It will continue Direct through the weekend until diving into its next Void Of Course Psychic Astro Sign Synapse on 10/12 at 10:29a, to emerge Direct again on 10/13 at 12:56a in Virgo. All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the energetic Aries opportunity to engage in things that amplify your energies, things you are passionate about. I would suggest that the meditation is to embrace the heft balance to stay in your lane so to speak so your higher octave Aries energies emanate rather obliterate. Out of your lane might be like bumper cars or Pachinko balls bouncing around all over. In your lane and breathing deeply may stoke your Inner fire with the good stuff of You.

Nevermind mastery. Mastery leads to further discovery, and Aries can sharpen your points through expert skill in play. It’s advised to keep an extra sheath around, though. I suggest to light a candle that you do not blow out in a fire-safe place.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Oct 9th, 2020

Temperance ~ Hierophant

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace big changes as you engage with your established identity. Even if these are not Your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were and see what new perspectives you discover, and what intense energies that oppose one another you harness for your Higher Good.

How can you World-Altar your life with your down-to-earth spirit that magically mixes with balance? I suggest to not get lost in that. There’s always a way. I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski put it better at a higher octave when his Chariot spoke and said, I made a diamond out of my misfortune. Taken that way, the intense heat and pressures of the world can be World-Altaring instead to…. What diamond do you make with the pressures of your life?

What are Your Tarot Birth Cards?

And, if you want to explore Tarot Birth Cards more, please visit my 9-Part Birth-Placing Identity Series.

This Week

It’s a #5 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 5 of Pentacles.

1 min 06 sec

and

I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times how do you embrace your established inner light to activate effective actions? How can you exhale The Nemesis of Beauty Asphyxiator of anxiety so it doesn’t smoke out your inner fire?

I refer to the 5 of Pentacles as the Inspect Your Expectations card. Rather than pity or shame or guilt or loss, how can you look past that to the higher octave of your warm and established inner light, Your Inner Hearth? How can you look past the blind spots and illusions and mirages of what you expect to see, and see and experience what is really there? Justice and The King of Swords are a great pair of allies to explore that question With the 5 of Pentacles.

What messages do Justice (VIII or XI depending on how you roll) and The King of Swords Gift to you for your 5 of Pentacles?

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do YOU harness intense energies in real time? Record yourself speaking about The Chariot and/or Temperance and/or The Hierophant and/or the 5 of Pentacles. Close your eyes and play yourself back. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear even more than what you said. What do you hear, and how does it come across to you? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you? What about the flow? Dance like no one’s watching, click record, and speak like no one’s listening. Share what happens if you like.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Inside and look out the window… look out the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 1min 06sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What do I craft from the pressures in my life? How do you allow this inform your perspective? What will you do about it?

Carrie Paris is the Video Producer on my Mystereum Tarot Moments series from 2012-2013. Check out her beautiful site!

Recently

This Week intense energies that I harnessed were published yesterday. My article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine.* I’m stoked with the honor, and beyond pleased with the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin and the Tarosophy Team!

* Members only magazine. No tease. Just to let you know. I suggest to check out the Tarosophy Tarot Association.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

A Blast From The Past: 2014

So, here’s what you car might look like the next morning in the winter from your energy after a WONDERFUL marathon 4-hour Reading the day before and a 30-minute drive home. Love the Baby Dragon Wings border and living flows across the Moon Roof.

SVRCINA ~ Battlefield

Nothing Else Matters ~ Metallica Cover

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 9th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own. All similar, each unique. My image is splashing in the water. Just splash and splash and let the splash be… unless you’re in Oz or South Africa. Then, do that in a pool. I wouldn’t;t want you to hear dangerous cello music in the ocean. Du Nuh…

I suggest take 2 you are familiar with and revisit their current posts. Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble. The stars and planets are menacing if you let them be, and magical allies if you OWN them. I suggest to not take shit this week from the stars. Turn around and see where they are coming from. Your perspective might shift to your benefit. Breathe out and take out your broom to clean sweep anxiety out! Fear is like Inner Iolite, the Nordic Compass. Use it as awareness, and please do take care not to let anxiety hijack it from you to jack it into being afraid. SHIELDS UP for the rest of the month! Make it so!

Enjoy Your SI

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Martha Ann Kennedy’s Blog ~ I’m A Writer, Yes, I Am! Her recent post Through the Looking Glass from The Global Exclaimer is powerful and full-on apt about this racism disease going around more powerfully in this current time where the Civil War is like the EverReady Bunny just going and going and going — like it seethed under the surface for over a century, the internal war that never ended. About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley. All my life, I’ve been a writer. Sometimes, I’m also a painter, but I am always a hiker.

Scott Parker-Anderson ~ Waldina. Waldina was my maternal great-grandmother. Her life story has inspired generations of our family. I write about what inspires me.

I look forward to where this exploration leads.

SI: 10/2 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 10/2 Serendipity Itinerary

Your October 2nd, 2020 SI, with the Harvest Full Moon in Aries since 10:47p 9/30, officially Full yesterday at 5:05p. The Moon will continue its travel through Aries to enter its next Void of Course Astro Sign Lunar Synapse Saturday 10/3 at 1:47a and emerge Direct in Taurus at 11:12a 10/3. All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the energetic Aries opportunity to engage in things that amplify your energies, things you are passionate about. I would suggest that the meditation is to embrace the heft balance to stay in your lane so to speak so your higher octave Aries energies emanate rather obliterate. Out of your lane might be like bumper cars or Pachinko balls bouncing around all over. In your lane and breathing deeply may stoke your Inner fire with the good stuff of You.

Nevermind mastery. Mastery leads to further discovery, and Aries can sharpen your points through expert skill in play. It’s advised to keep an extra sheath around, though. I suggest to light a candle that you do not blow out in a fire-safe place.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

Your Tarot Birth Cards for 10/2/2020

Tower ~ Chariot

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace big changes as you engage with your established identity. Even if these are not Your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were and see what new perspectives you discover, and what intense energies that oppose one another you harness for your Higher Good.

Hey, The Tower can certainly be change at a world-altering level. I suggest to not get lost in that. There’s always a way. I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski put it when his Chariot spoke as, I made a diamond out of my misfortune. Taken that way, the intense heat and pressures of the world can be World-Altaring instead.

What are Your Tarot Birth Cards?

This Week

It’s a #7 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 7 of Pentacles.

If your pond turns over, it does so to refresh the system. Harness the energies of the experience while they are active. And, respect that dust may need to clear first which advises stillness in Mindfulness to refresh you.

I refer to the 7 of Pentacles as The Soul Gardener Card, an Inner Tree of Life. Wald Amberstone refers to the 7 of Pentacles as The Depth of Above — note the back foot in the RWS deck out over the clouds not on the ground. Hence, a Depth of Above, a Soul Gardener of You.

0 min 58 sec

and

I have plans to produce videos for the other suits, plus individual number card groupings, the Courts, and of course the Majors.

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do YOU harness intense energies in real time? Record yourself speaking about The Chariot and/or The Tower and/or the 7 of Pentacles. Close your eyes and play yourself back. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear even more than what you said. What do you hear, and how does it come across to you? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you? What about the flow? Dance like no one’s watching, click record, and speak like no one’s listening. Share what happens if you like.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Inside and look out the window… look out the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 0min 58sec seconds, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What intensity is harnessed through the Soul of my eyes? Close your 2 eyes to open the 3rd. How do you allow this inform your perspective?

Carrie Paris is the Video Producer on my Mystereum Tarot Moments series from 2012-2013. Check out her beautiful site!

This Week

This Week intense energies that I harnessed were published yesterday. My article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine.* I’m stoked with the honor, and beyond pleased with the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin and the Tarosophy Team!

* Members only magazine. No tease. Just to let you know. I suggest to check out the Tarosophy Tarot Association.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Ruelle ~ Hold Your Breath

Au/Ra ~ Dance in the Dark

Patti Smith ~ Horses

There Are 2 Musical Pairs for You + Here’s the Bonus Blast From the Past. So Cool that this resurfaced.

Resurfaced from the cardboard box treasure chest they slept through their long-form perennial slumber…

Ok, I couldn’t resist. There felt no reason to. Gratuitous add. This has become a Go-To. Their chemistry is just HAWT

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 2nd

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

Most everyone below has excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe felt quieter Again this week, though longer looking, and maybe intensities were simply wonderful in balance. Expansive even in simple expressions. I suggest take 2 you are familiar with and revisit. Then I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week.

I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

SI: 9/25 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 9/25 Serendipity Itinerary

Your September 25th, 2020 SI, with the Moon exiting its journey through Capricorn to go Void of Course at 11:36p today, Friday 9/25, to re-emerge Direct in Aquarius at 2:08a in the wee hours of Saturday 9/26. The Moon will be direct in Aquarius through the weekend to enter its next Void of Course Astro Sign Interstice Monday 9/28 at 3:18a. All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the opportunity to engage in activities that you are both good at and love in a more free-spirited and possibly even a little eccentric way to blow out the pipes and refresh yourself for stronger re-connection with your loves. Take some time to NOT stay in your lane with yourself and get off-trail where Nature homes the great stuff.

Nevermind your mastery. Admitting mastery is no braggart or ego statement. The Master has failed more times than the student has tried. And, mastery leads to further discovery.

This weekend is a great time to discover things you otherwise would not have if you went through tried and true compulsory motions. Get off the figure eight technique in the corner and out on the ice or the track with some VROOM and fly a little. Duct tape a seat cushion to your toosh. That might make sense. The times you fall will be more fun when it’s more of a ploomp of a plop-bounce than a crash. And, when you don’t fall, the cushion might make for some great laughs.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they orginated from you to you.

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Ruelle ~ Hold Your Breath

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for September 25th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

Most everyone below has excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe felt quieter Again this week, though longer looking, and maybe intensities were simply wonderful in balance. Expansive even in simple expressions. I suggest take 2 you are familiar with and revisit. Then I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week.

About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley.

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

Your September 18th, 2020 SI, with the Moon in Libra from yesterday, 9/17 at 2:56p EST. This is a great time for family and friends, things that energize a home wonderfully. The Moon will go Void of Course Saturday, 9/19 at 10:29a, to emerge and travel through the depthful and passionate intensity of Scorpio 9/19 at 2:33p. Take the opportunity to enjoy and pay attention to your healthy intensities though the weekend, and do note and put the clutch in to disengage triggers if they arise. Intensity often comes with a menagerie of other qualities. I would suggest to simply mindful of them as they arise, and respect that they surface to engage healing.
