Sacred. Numbers All Are

Inspired by Christina Schmidt, MA’s blog post:

I love that Wyrd brought up the triplets, especially here with Christina being a Four kinda person. Quarter note triplets in 2 versus 3 is a pretty beautiful cadence.

I Especially Love

I especially love that you brought it up, as the architect in me nodded at the 3 when I first saw this series, though it was as engaging as a prayerful breath, as I moved right along. I nodded as 3 is the 1st number associated with beauty. Once 3’s, then 2 is also beautiful as a paring or coupling, and 1 as identity.

3’s. III The Empress. XII The Hanged Man. The Hanged Man is The Emperor’s son.

There’s a potential seed for rockin’ conversation about numbers and numerology here for 1 through 9 + 0. (As a concept rather than a number). I feel 9 is the most dynamic number, as it folds over itself, the only number to do so, and it is formed of 3-squared. 3 is then a seed of 9, dosing itself with more of itself as 3-square to POOF, become 9. 9 folds over itself? What are you saying, Jordan?

Let’s Look

Look at the 9’s multiplication table:
09:18:27:36:45::54:63:72:81:90. It’s a mirror, like 10 fingers sharing a pinky to fold over together in a namaste or prayer gesture: Also, the color for 9, the Nin kanji in Ninjitsu Shadow meditation, indicative of the Tao, is White. Community of all colors in harmony, the dynamic place to go of the One Point, or Hara… and then back to yellow at 1 with Chu Kanji.

  • Ace of Cups

The Four

And, the Four? Oh yeah from what I see that fits you, Christina. Four is the first number of place, of empire, of foundation, IV Emperor in Tarot, Four Corners, Four Winds. Foreplay to pun it. XIII Death as 13 is also a 4. Are your Tarot Birth Cards Death~Emperor? Or, High Priestess~Justice?

I resonate that the expressions of the meanings of numbers go on and on like pi… 3.1415629 etc etc etc. Pi. One of the EverReady Bunnies of numbers. 22/7 (or, is there another expression of Pi? … hmmmm)

Rather than going into my 1 through 9 as I’ve written about it almost too extensively to yet be concise, to have been concise, and somehow now I am again in the place of the repeating number ellipses NOT being able to be concise about numbers…

I’ll simply share these 4 videos as an Ode to Christina’s 4-Ness-ness. 3 videos mine + 1 Cristobal Vila… which I have to say is MO’ BETTA than mine. Not a judgment or personal slam on me from me. He simply WENT places with it that I full-on resonate with, full-on EXPRESSED it without words.

3’s: 0m 59sec

4’s: 0m 59sec

9’s: 1m 51sec

The Nature of Numbers: 3m 43sec

Thanks much for Visiting!

Quite A Quotable Quaternity

Quite A Quotable Quaternity

Every so often I come across STUNNING and wondrous words and images and et al, and feel it’s my responsibility to share them to contribute my part in them reaching the expanses they deserve.

Today, as I was reading Philip Edward’s blog post, it happened again. 4 words. 4 shining and magically magnetic words. 4. That’s it. 4 words. And those 4 words just went places for me! That’s it. 4 words. I dig that ‘No’ or ‘Yes can each be a complete sentence. Though here, today, I have a 1st. A whole blog post comprised of four words:


Our antiquity is animated!

Don’t get too absorbed.

Saturate Ablution Instead.

Don’t get too absorbed in your emotions, stay self-aware and observe your emotions calmly.

In a nodding and silent yes, I breathe-feel out a prayer, … and, while you are observing, while you dwell in your promontory of Self quietitude, breathing deeply as your awareness amplifies, …may you meet and congregate fully with your emotions, you as their leader, … nodding… no reason to allow your emotions to dictate how you feel… no reasons for your emotions to speak for you… as the emotions’ jobs of messaging Your feelings cascades to a fullness of how you hold yourself in high regard… And you speak for yourself after being informed by your Wise Inner Counsel, you yourself become your promontory as you simply gaze out, Nature incarnate

IN and AS You yourself present.

Hauntingly Beautiful

Hauntingly Beautiful.

I am SO not disturbed by this. Instead. I have tingles and Yesses. Yes, Disturbed is simply a wonderful band name, And his bio sometimes alludes to it psychologically in so many words, and his voice is SO developed. SO many ins and outs of vocal techniques in seamless segues of execution. Especially, on this one. I am a huge Disturbed fan, though I was PLUSSED full-on when I 1st experienced this.

This doesn’t feel like a cover, he made it his own. Though, nonetheless, it’s of course still a cover. An artful one in video, music, and the music of the voice In its entirety. Moving is a word. I use that one.

Wanna See Your Brave?

Watch? Spectate? Do?

Yes. Both/And!

Your life YOUR way?

How Do You Listen?

How Do You Brave?

… in Powerful Witness, or waiting to talk?

Isn’t there always a 3rd option when asked a choice question?… to make it YOURS? To transform the urgency of the asker into YOUR sanctuary of a question? To Re-set the stage of the questions to respond YOUR way?

Is the glass half full or half empty? It’s a great place to place a flower.
Is the glass half full or half empty? It’s refillable. What’s your point?

Is the glass half full or half empty? Do you not work with what you have?

Is the glass half full or half empty? Ok, geeezzzz, you got me. It’s neither…

Is the glass half full or half empty? And, you’re not pouring, why?

Etc, etc, ad infinitum and nauseum… though, in YOUR way…

Tarot. Don’t Smoke Hope

Goals and Dreams

“The difference between a goal and a dream is a deadline.” ~Steve Smith  

Thanks Corrine Kenner for the above quote that must have slipped out!  And, to think I wasn’t planning on blogging today… go figure.

How to Make Dreams Come True

So… rather than sitting around smoking hope with your dreams.  Begin to build foundations under them by transforming them into goals.  Bring them through customs from the unconscious into reality by studying them, discerning their components, and setting deadlines accordingly.  Soon enough you’ll be giggin’ the smiles.  Carrying your dreams to full term and making them come true does come with a problem, though.  You then have to be inspired to create new ones!  Make sure to make room for them in both your air traffic control and piloting, and of course their home on your ground.

Mystereum Tarot Imagin-Action Death~Emperor Scheduling

Mystereum Tarot Imagin-Action Death~Emperor Scheduling

Now is the time to explore Imagin-Action with you in daily blogs with Tarot in the Land of Mystereum.

Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.  So, look in YOUR mirror.  How close are you?  How close are you to finding your own natural leadership that is present to work with and effectively enliven your own interactions?  Explore the military sandbox of Imagin-Action with these daily blogs.  Sound rigorous?  Sure is!  Sound hard?  Not a chance.  Imagin-Action can enhance the heartbeat and breath of your ideas to effectively play out and build foundation under your dreams.  Imagin-Action can help you make your dreams beyond real.  Imagin-Action can bring your realized dreams into play as natural features in your everyday personal, business, you-name-it course of life.

Death ~ Emperor Scheduling

All Similar, Each Unique. And, with Imagin-Action and Death ~ Emperor Scheduling you will soon learn to keep your focus fresh like Death always present in the garden, use the D word well (DELETE DELETE DELETE) with forgetting is for getting, and by methodically going step by step, even when your RPM’s are groovin’ the redline under deadline, be able to realign the pace and direction of your whole system in a single step like The Emperor as you complete things and finish wonderfully well with a YEAH BayBEE!

Today will scratch the surface of Death ~ Emperor Scheduling.  I want it to be effective for you.  What I’ve learned and evolved in 20+ years of Project Management will be doled out in appetizer and single-course portions.  I want you to be able to not gloss over a tome, and immediately begin to put things to use and build more effectiveness into the things you do.

Today’s Theme of Death ~ Emperor Scheduling is a short n sweet combo of Wed & Thu themes

~ WEDNESDAYS will be Working Out Your Best Times Wednesdays. Showing you creative ways to play, and play your play into enhancing your effectiveness in ALL you do.  Personal.  Business.  You-name-it!

~ THURSDAYS will be Those Times You Are Most Productive Thursdays.  We’ll find ways to mind those times, notice them, and discover how to better capitalize on synchromeshing them with your Best Times Wednesdays.  Sound like this is Department of Redundancy Department stuff?  Well, tune in and then decide.

One Quote & 2 Questions to figure out when is YOUR best time to work?

  • Juggling around identity and divinity, I feel that identity is divinity expressed personally. All similar, each unique. ~Jordan Hoggard
  • So, What times and periods of day do you feel divine, magical?
  • Which of those times and periods are magically personal, and which of those times and periods are delightfully productive?

That’s It For Today!  WHAT?!, You Say?  What can I . . . .

Ok ok ok. But, stop being so Gotta Look Real Hard To Show I Am Focusing.  This is not presenteeism.

  • outline the times of the day YOU feel magical and divine.  There may be a diff between magical and divine or no.  Your call.
  • outline the periods of the day YOU feel magical and divine. If you’re feeling down, distinguish degrees across the day and pick some winners!  Make ’em a certificate or CUPCAKES!
  • outline the times of the day that you feel ARE magical and divine.  The TIMES of the day.
  • outline the periods of the day that you feel ARE magical and divine.  The PERIODS of the day.
  • Make a simple Monday through Sunday or Sunday through Monday chart, a Week Per View with your current daily order.
  • Anchor-point your current commitments, then begin to fill it in and flesh it out by . . .
  • Describe your 24-hour calendar.  An easy way to be concise and have fun with this part is to TITLE each period, and TITLE the specific times you outliined above.  Give ’em names or story titles.  Have fun with it.  I love detail and repetitive work as it becomes a cadence of a physical meditation, yet I STILL call the daily check-in and weekly updating of what $$’s I have to work with ASSININE ACCOUNTING.  I actually really like it, but I like more to keep a clue present in my environment that a priority is to have staff to accommodate this, and to periodically revisit the priorities and action steps I have to put that in place.  DO Make sure SLEEP has a good block of time wherever you put it.
  • Now, which of the above are YOURS YOURS YOURS?  Times?  Periods?  Whole Days?
  • Which of the above are shared and in need of coordination with another or a group?  Times?  Periods?  Whole Days?
  • Which of the above are when you are uninterruptable and you can, do, or will commit to focusing ONLY on your task and RELATED tasks in orbit at hand? Yes, withOUT interruption?  There’s a new invention called voicemail, and phones tend to have ways to quickly drop the volume without turning them off.  Constant notifications are a far cry from the cadence of a drum circle.
  • in that last regard, be mindful of metronomes in your life that you have simply white-noised gotten used to.  We’ll need to tailor those later, too.
  • Do YOUR homework YOUR way.

Now, that’s REALLY it for today.  Get the above recipe list present and ready.

Do the above as homework, and after you complete it, place it somewhere where you keep it in plain sight.  We will be building on it as we go along with these Imagin-Action techniques for more effectively incorporating imagination into everything you do.  If you like to cook, you’ll understand these prep portions and their pauses.  How ’bout we call the above Your Imagin-Action Ramikens. the little bowls of prepped sauces and sliced n diced stuff that you paint in to your cooking here and there on the way to making a great meal?  Yes, Imagin-Action Ramikens to hold your Imagin-Action ingredients.  Well, you can of course call them that now, though I would suggest to make sure they are clean and ready to go.

Place your Imagin-Action homework in plain sight after you complete it.  Keep a scratch pad in your pocket across a day or several days and let your homework just complete itself basically as you take notes when they strike resonant chords with you.  For the long-haul, keep a scratch pad to scribble down week vs weekend feelings and titles. Keep it simple.  Just time or time period and name or title.  We will get to the moon phases n stuff later.  Keep it simple.  It’ll be your Bob the Biology Skeleton up at the front of your class.  This is about writing down the bones of your time and their character + function in your life.

Tune in, take the time to make laughter, and find the laughable in any situation

It sets a break or segue from whatever you were doing before like jumping around and shaking being all silly for no reason other than . . . to prime your pumper and pump up the volume on your celestial groove. We’re all born to see differently, all similar each unique.  Focus and clarify YOUR vision and effectiveness as you follow along and participate with Mystereum in Imagin-Action!


This blog is in no way intended to give you the higher octave of ADHD which is ALAS.  What is ALAS?, you say?  ALAS is . . . ATTENTION . . . Look A Squirrel!  Discipline in the sandbox is finding the natural way you flow and play with your ideas effectively.  It is about discovering their value that can take seconds, can take your whole life up to this point.  Each day, each play.  Make ’em count.  The value of a moment can be perennially catalyzing.  The value present in each moment can be infinite.

Oh, one last thing

I checked the Cosmic Daytimer.  The future was all booked up, the past was out, and that seems to be the status for quite some time.  No room for them in The Perpetual Present Inn.  Now works, though.  Past and future orbit like memories and dreams.  You might try hookin’ up with ’em in the spa.  Now works, though.  Now works.  There always seems to be an opening for you now.

Get that scratch pad and / or pads, and do pull a card to turn over that Card Back up there.  Will it be your big title to color your scheduling theme?  You’ll have to decide on that.  It’s your schedule, and we want to get you to be the Master of your schedule.

A closing scenic overlook side trip for Ya

The 3 Major Trees In The Land Of Mystereum

The Empress    The Hanged Man    The Emperor

A family?

The Yoniverse of the Empress’ tree.  Emanating from under the arched canopy of her naturalized forest garden.  Emanating with a golden and pregnant High Priestess .

The Hanged Man reflects his tree’s posture.  Hanged Man’s clarity AS one with nature? Natural inner nature of clarity?

The Emperor INside his horse-laid-down as tree.  Note the horseleg roots across the ground.  The sword and crown.  A statement of no need of weapons or crowns when going to inner places?  Judge your place with no implements of harm to Self?  Integrated armor simply being places of health and well-being?

The Empress’, The Hanged Man’s, & The Emperor’s trees. A Major Arcana clump of trees in an archetypal forest?

What do the 3 Trees In Mystereum say to you?

Fours: Birth-Placing Identity

Fours: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Fours

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

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

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

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

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

13 is the Outer Expression              4 is the Inner Expression

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

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

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jupiter’s Blessings,

~ Jordan & The Land of Mystereum
