Tarot Twos To Pair: Birth Cards

“Twos To Pair” Video Transcript:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tarot Shifts Focus

What comes to mind is an already-transitioned-completed Tower moment verging on The Star, where:

The Tower, rearranging, upheave-refreshing your Temple-Inside-Home . . . after all the smoke and rubble cleared, a small child walks up . . . bright eyes in the night like a benevolent animal.  The child starts asking you allsorts of questions which one by one in rapid-fire succession you answer until you have a conscious awareness amidst the benevolent barrage that you know all the answers and are seamlessly responding . . . at which point, the child sensing this, abruptly stops, and YOUR eyes begin to glow brighter and you ask the child, “Who are You?”  And, the child’s eyes light up, “I am You, only new,” as the child looks up fade-merging into you as you look up and see . . . The Star . . . Your Star . . . shining your refreshed sense of actionable and on-the-move eternal hope.

Best to You,

Jordan

Tarot Forming Archetype ~ Judgment

The Queen of Pentacles’ throne’s left flank,
in the right side of her card.

Form was given to the formlessness
of her grounded station airy ness
by The High Priestess.

Hands naturalized in out of body and earthenly rooted
at one and the same time as she permeated all,
She took the station airy ness,
to stationary ness of a Queen’s throne,
A Nessy unknown now known as throne.
As Queens’ settled regal wing-feathers
solidly folded themselves in purple and gold
to sit regally naturalized in her garden.

The High Priestess, looking all directions always,
looked over,
looked over to The Queen of Pentacles to feel all directions.

While looking to her right. . .
The High Priestess formed the formless Q of P’s thought:

*Splay regal purple and psychic gold wing-feathered throne!

Splay!*

*Regally splay-spread your wing-feathers to stretch through twilight*

*At dawn and dusk regally herald a resounding voice to say

WAKE UP!*

*WAKE UP throne!*

*WAKE UP PERENNIALLY!*

*WAKE UP!*

*You are now no longer throne!*

*You are now called Judgment!

*Open EACH IDEA as they burst forth unseen!*

*Open each from their bulb- box!*

*Tis the SEASON!*

*Phoenix-Resurrect your throne-bulbs Judgment!*

*Open your perennial regalNESS in your bulbs!*

*Look at ALL that green out there!*

*Open the perennial bulbs of your ideas to the SUN

each when in their season!*

~ The End

 

 

 

Card Resonances:
Land of Mystereum’s Queen of Pentacles throne left flank, right side
FORM-GIVEN BY
Land of Mystereum’s High Priestess giving form to the station airy ness
BECOMES
Land of Mystereum’s Judgment’s horn-voice heralding regal wing.

Inner Insight Glimpsing Into Eternal Insight: The Full Central Lunar Eclipse

How much more can you close your eyes to experience VISION?  What of when the night sky closes its eyes to the moon in a full central lunar eclipse?

How exciting!  Well, I think.  We are in for the 1st of 2 total lunar eclipses on Wednesday, June 15, 2011.  The second will occur on December 10th. The moon will be in Sagittarius on June 15th, and the earth is projected to cast its shadow on the moon making the full lunar eclipse last for some 100 minutes.  It is also an extremely rare central eclipse where the moon will pass through the centerline of the earth’s shadow.  The next central lunar eclipse will be on July 27, 2018. (ref. Wikipedia link)

I say, “I think”, as I feel there is merit in Bonnie Cehovet’s statement that, “. . . but that has to be disruptive in some way.”  From my perspective, and I have heard many conflicting ideas on eclipses as of late from my astrology buddies, lunar and solar, yet with this one being a rare central eclipse, I felt them reaching somehow in statements that sounded all too reasonable, and too. . .too, “that makes too much sense to believe.”  The statement, “reasons are often unreasonable” came to mind, and I smiled feeling a lot more comfortable eclipsing all that chatter and feeling into it myself, divining it.

So, why not work that out right here in a blog in one take kinda thing?  That’s how I do most things anyway, them not taking an hour or two, but more so taking my whole life up to that point with a “let ‘er rip n build something” where the meaning occurs in the act, with the meaning AS the act.  Heck, I don’t really know if I layered that wisdom into the stories told in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum or if building it, Mystereum taught me.  I can say that mastery, one way or the other, led to discovery.  Maybe no matter if I AM Marco Polo’s hull after a voyage, or the starry-eyed-in-anticipation person standing on the dock as the hull reveals and unfolds it treasures at my feet.  Maybe both. Maybe neither.  Certainly not nether.

Let’s start with 4 features: the 4 big ole archetypal Tarot ideas for the eclipse of The Sun, The Moon, and Temperance — as the moon will be in Saggie, and Temperance is ruled by Sag.  The Sun and the Moon are kinda necessary for this lunar eclipse gig to happen. They intermix in this central lunar eclipse as an alchemical rue due to a more mundane gig, though. . .Earth.  Respecting that, it feels to be fitting to bring in another, The Empress as Momma Gaia to represent earth.  Then another, The World, as the universe of an alchemist’s crucible wherein all 4 intermix.  So, that’s 5. The Sun.  The Moon.  Temperance.  The Empress.  The World.  Before this gets ad infinitum out of hand, before the roller coaster dynamic of a multi-layer chess tennis match between them all unfolds on Wednesday, and I ask you to smile and fasten your seat belts. . . it seems prudent, WOW I actually used that word for once. . .It seems prudent to pose a centerline or nucleus of some questions first.  Pose them not for what we will see, but for more expansive focus toward further opening up vision.  Vision, the kind where you don’t say, “the sky’s the limit,” as that is limiting.  Simply look up.  Point to it.  It’s right there.  The sky is then equivalent to sight, what we see or want to see.  Thinking bigger than that, that seems to be what I am calling vision here.  Seeing the powerful limit beyond the sky that is given by vision.  Maybe the questions coming up are my own boxes of the blind-spots of expectation, of sight rather than vision.  That’ll have to be up to you.

So. . . . . . .

How much more unconscious and depthfully intuitive can we be made as we simply gaze right out at the not-there-in-the-sky-hiding-in-plain-sight central lunar eclipse moon?  Do we see further in when looking at, into, its darkness in the darkness of the night?

Maybe the experience is like a natal astro chart of someone I know with Neptune and Mercury 4 degrees from one another in Scorpio?  Basically, someone being born with a foot on both sides, where even taking a walk takes that person multiple places at once where those places are all mostly always integrated together in a single experience that seems normal to them?  Hmmmm. . .  Someone who sees psychic contents as easily as looking at art in a museum?  A place where the autonomic, everyday devotion of breath is the prayer, the ongoing meditation?    Seat belts, please. 😀   Here we go. . . .

Hmmm. . .dark in dark.  Is this an anomaly of an antinomy, the totality of inner opposites. . .yet an antinomy of a totality of inner sameness, the moon and our intuition going into the dark of our own earthly shadow?  Pictures!  How?  What’s there to see with vision?  I have another question also coming to mind that I should preface before I blotto-transcend it.  With the yin-yang symbol, the black spot being more than a beauty mark in the white field, is the spot really a psychic wormhole?  A psychic wormhole where you go so far into the light as to become dark, and wormhole through the spot POOF to the dark field. . .and then the other way you go so far into the dark that POOF you come to the light dot bright-spot and POOF you wormhole again to. . . . I rather like that activation of the symbol.  But, enough of the question-preface of that scenario as it seems small now.  I sense a larger question:

What happens when the dark goes into the dark?

Does intuition get deeper, where the Moon, the bright eye of intuition in the night sky. . .goes dark?  Deeper intuition?  A huge sense of a loss of bearing?  Vast expansiveness afloat in total clarity in total darkness, a Hanged Man moment you cannot see?  Do you experience glimpses of eternity from your known depths of the realms of your creativity and imagination and experience?  Total dissolution of self, or is it more not an annihilation of self but more fully a self-realization of the far reaches of one’s infinite inner divinity plunging further into the night so to speak?

The Penumbra Missing That Is A New Experience.  Alternate title?  No, I think I have said what I want to about the coming eclipse. . .there’s a title of a poem rattling around in that alternate title. . .the now-subject of this blog dedicated to the full lunar eclipse on Wednesday.  I’ll run that, too, since I am warmed up.   If you cannot see the eclipse in your area, maybe so much the better.  Look at the moon and close your eyes with your own Momma-Gaia earth-shadow eyelids.  Fully eclipse the moon yourself passing dark into dark, a void between stars, an odd, “hmmm, of a dark spot the size of the moon.”  It may be a blank darkness in the night.  It may be another imaginative wormhole to take you places and dissolve false connections.  Again, that’s for you to decide and/or feel / experience.  I will be curious what the core resonance of dark passing into dark is for everyone.  Until then, I better write that poem while IT seems to still be warm. . .

The Missing Penumbral Light. A New Experience

Shadow shadow in the night,

I do not see you though I dance without fright.

Stop rhyming you say,

and I say,

ok.

Your Pallas-Athena gift that formed and set up in my mind

between Uranus the Shaker-Upper

and Pluto The Transformer

seems a gift that extends a gift,

extending the gift of the dark passing into the dark,

further into night,

night passing back a different glimpse of eternity from its own deeper night,

eternity’s own shadowed moon seen not-there.

Your gift.

Your Pallas-Athena gift saturates an old dusty idea in my mind.

The Sophia Principle if I remember correctly,

where may I be lucid enough to sense my shadow,

but smart enough to dance with it,

and now, smarter falls away to more. . .

Acceptant and receiving

I will dance

in the dark

with my shadow,

with and IN my earthly shadow

in Gaia-cast night-level shadow,

Gaia-cast

Gaia cast up to right not-there the moon,

now right not-there in the night sky,

where my symbols of intuition and depth disappear into experience,

where on this night

dark passes into dark.

Where on this night an infinite dark passes into my night.

What happens inside when the dark goes into the dark outside?

What happens when the dark goes into the dark?

Prescient Remembrance Painting?

Sometimes pattern.  Sometimes, direct prefiguration.

Not many words for this right now.

Cicada resonances across time.

Suffice it to say the paintings to wand progression

gave me a beautiful pause, a scenic overlook, in process.

Day Painting to Night Painting to Wand.

Prescient Remembrance Painting.

1994 to 2008 to 2011.

Memory is dream, Dream is memory,

both living in the perpetual present,

each birth brilliant in its age.

1967 to 2005 unknowingly tilling the soil for the Mystereum Tarot.

1973, 4 1/2 cards spread on floor telling me stories.  Reading Tarot began.

Reading Tarot began by literally reading cards.

April 2005 to September 2007 gardening daily, creating The Mystereum Tarot

May 5, 2008 The Mystereum Tarot decks arrive with 48-page LWB

Readers Studio 2009: contract with Schiffer Publishing for a different kind of Tarot project

June 2, 2009 to December 10, 2009 192-page Imagination Primer created and written, deck evolve-tailored

January 5, 2011 The Land of Mystereum is discovered at The Tarot Garden, on Amazon, and soon to be on your local shelves.

Ones: Birth-Placing Clarity

Tarot Birth Identities:

Ones: Birth-Placing Clarity With The Sun ~ The Wheel ~ The Magician

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

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my video like the Mystereum Tarot Moment for the Ace of Pentacles.  Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana and Courts in the videos.  Also, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with integrated Birth Card Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well Your Royal Court characters.  You will experience an example Prelude below.

So, to start for example with a 3-card Birth Card combo, the first card can represent the person’s Outer Expression.  The 2nd card can be their Added Incentive.  And, the third card can represent their Inner Expression.  So for example with the Birth Card Chart combo of a XIX, X, I; 19, 10, 1; The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magican:

19 is the Outer Expression10 is the Added Incentive 1 is the Inner Expression

For a 10, 1 combo: 10 is the Outer Expression1 is the Inner Expression.  A Prelude of your own making can create and make your own brand of an Added Incentive integrated, hiding in plain sight, and /or simply inherent from your perspective.

So, let’s get started walking through these shall we?

BIRTH CARD IDENTITIES: ONES

THE SUN ~ THE WHEEL ~ THE MAGICIAN 

 

 
[ XIX ~ X ~ I ]   [ 19 ~ 10 ~ 1 ]
Note how the numbers of these cards each add up to reduce to 1, and thus also correspond with the Aces in general.

 

One’s Birth Card Prelude: With The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician as your Birth Cards you have the ability to tap into magical cycles of identity.     A Birth Card Prelude can be as simple as a few words, and as inviting and expansive as the title of a book, the ever-evolving book of You!

See how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 3 characters as facets of one personality:

The Sun ~ identity        The Wheel ~ cycles      The Magician ~ magical

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Putting them back together again, and note that the attributes are utilized in reverse.  That’s your call: With The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician as your Birth Cards you have the ability to tap into magical cycles of identity.

The Sun card represents your Outer Expression.  This is how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Sun card is known for its subtle strength of constancy.  With The Sun card representing your Outer Expression experience the subtle strengths of the constancy of your perspective and presence as you brightly express yourself.  Know that even when it is overcast or dark or you experience emotional weather, you shine somewhere regardless.  Keep sight of what you brighten.

The Wheel of Fortune represents your Added Incentive.  This is a card of synchronicity, cause and effect and what many call karma.  When the Wheel of Fortune is part of your Added Incentive you can expect to feel catalyzed as you move through and into new cycles in your life.

The Magician represents your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’.  The Magician as your Inner Expression symbolizes that you present things clearly, but subtly distorted from the way others might expect.  You have a uniquely complete thought process and imagination to infuse your actions.

Hope you have enjoyed this Birth Card Identity and Birth Card Prelude I have put together for you.  Comments always welcome.  Look forward to hearing from you in Your Tarot voice!  Powerfully evocative and life-ful Tarot experiences to You and Yours!
