Wednesday Mystereum Tarot Interview With The Spampires

Wednesday Mystereum Tarot Interview With The Spampires

Welcome to the weekly Mystereum Tarot Interview With The Spampires! Here, spam emails are used to juice the humor-factor as free warm-up topics.  Here’s a mini warm-up workshop for you right in this blog.  Nothing to sign up for or schedule.  Simply a 5-card Land of Mystereum inspired exercise for some laughter for getting some hump-day warm-up wind in your sails. Watch the hot air, though fill up your sails with your own, warm wind.

The Mystereum Tarot Interview With The Spampires is a great technique for:

  • warming up for readings before you get going.
  • getting your celestial groove going with humor, as humor is a healthy, integrated, preventitive armor that requires no maintenance. Humor’s shinier than steel, weighs tons less, and is easy to carry on the go.  Easy to share, too!
  • people who have a difficult time saying “no”.  It’s a way to practice how not to be silent about “no”, by higher octaving the ability to say no FULLY to someone or something by stepping past the first reaction to get to the humor response . . . as I feel that responding to things that getcha with humor, dance-plays with the concepts rather than tit-for-tat learning them, AND often blooms gifts that would otherwise have been missed.  Passive-aggressive has distinctions, and silence IS a response.  Learn when you will simply ignore something.  Easy to do with ANY spam email.  It’s even easier still on the rest of your day when you bypass noxious bs and stick to the oxygen.
  • learning how “Laughter is the shortest distance between people.” ~ Victor Borge  Learn to laugh at your spam . . . plus, the cursory scanning you do through them before FLUSH can heighten your senses on the fly, assist you to quickly pick out the important things in the crowd.
  • discovering how it can be fun and very healthy to say, “I don’t believe you” as easily as The Queen of Swords would, and WITHOUT your way being the highway afterwards AS “My way is the highway” kinds of statements are rhetorical.  Think about it.  When people say something like that, they are certainly not receptive to ANYTHING you may have to contribute.  Give ’em a mirror as a gift and as you walk away, “Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear, huh?”
  • finding the natural leadership present in the Queens that you can work with in your own interactions.

All Similar, Each Unique

So, if you are similar to me and a lot of other Tarot readers, sometimes we see and read things in simple images, in a tree, in a group of people.  Well, I thought, what the heck, I woke up on the bright side today.  Why not read the 1st 5 spams in my spam email folder.  Heck, they’re free.  And, if this doesn’t get you to search for buried treasure in your spam folder that isn’t from Nigeria, why not read the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this?

Spam Email As Alchemy? inquiries of Buried Treasure?  Probably not, though Sure!

I know from years of training that warming up and practice can often be taken way too seriously. Concentrate too much when you are cold, and brittle can appear. Similarly, sometimes making too much of the sonething which really bores the dickens out of you can limit the expansion and clear senses you have when you are warmed up and THEN really focus your energies on your activity whatever it is.

Do you get all serious when you throw a frisbee or watch a kite flying?  Even if you do, isn’t it a seriousness that is more of a Magician’s full-on focus that is magical?  Expert skill in play I say. Stretch slowly and then turn up your music and dance around to warm up OR try Interview With The Spampires (gratuitous SEO for Interview With the Vampire)

Taking the time to make laughter is important

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 leave that previous moment or activity’s influence and really start fresh into your next activity.  It’s like getting a massage regularly instead of waiting for the “OH MY I need a massage” times.  Mental maintenance to me is like hygiene.  Do you brush your teeth?  Wash?  Well Brain Wash by warming up.  It’s not a coercive tactic.  This Brain Wash thingee’ll get you going more in just your own way!

So, here is your Wednesday Tarot Interview With The Spampires Intro

Here’s how to do an Interview With The Spampires Warm-up Exercise: Read the 1st 5 spams in your spam email folder.  You don’t need to actually read them, as opening them is sometimes not so safe, and certainly don’t click anything in there.  Use the spam title as the card topic, and the snippet of the first several words you see on the spam email list where you see the title.  Simple.  Title as card topic. Snippet text as inquiry.  From my perspective I was probably going to say no to them if I even spent the time in the first place.  I have new clients all the time, though, so a focused scan before trashola is a daily task.  So, I was going to say “no” and Tarot’s probably not going to change my mind about spam email merit, though it can certainly flesh out some good laughs to prime the pumper before I happily and dramatically click DELETE TRASHOLA FOREVER, and OH YES I am really sure, with a grin on my face that washes them away in the next moment forever.

Here is your Wednesday Tarot Interview With The Spampires Warm-up example!

Have fun & then remember to forget FORGET! Or, at least don’t footnote it. 😉  Forgetting is for getting. Makes more room for the good stuff.  Humor is memorable or it isn’t, and naturally healthy either way.

My reading of five spam emails that were in my spam folder this morning.  Today I chose them.  Like the 7-up game in 1st grade.  Make ’em “PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME” outstretching their thumbs louder and louder.

Use your own spams or the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this as content and queries to make your own Interview With The Spampires warm-up exercise. Use anything you want to play with. Explore the natural leadership present in the Queens that is naturally present in you when you laugh.  Pump up your humor to prime your celestial groove.  Warm up with Wednesday’s Interview With The Spampires!  This message not sanctioned by actual vampires.  They were asleep, and all I had was a steak.  Spelling is important when slaying vampires.  I just think they’re sexy, though . . . more so when they are asleep and not chasing people around.

Spampire Interview 1 with ~ Cheap Auto Insurance. $9 / week: Farmers, Nationwide, Liberty Mutual & more

Card 1: 6 of Swords 

  • The 6 of Swords indicates baggage dragged from the past or problems that have been dwelt on at length. identify your transparent beliefs and work to stop depending on them. Open your eyes to see what the world has to offer. Like the day AFTER a big storm. Also indicated is to face your problems knowing it’s time to fight them off. See what is really there! Amend your inner soil by simply letting go of baggage. The Universe loves presents and surprises, and re-gifts back great ones! Gift your baggage to the Universe like opening your hands for a bird to fly away.
  • So, it is indicated to send them my auto insurance bills as a gift?  Hmm, I sold my car last year and went all bicycle n stuff.  I think I already dropped this baggage fronm the past.

Spampire Interview 2 with ~ Solar Savings America. Switch to solar power and cut you electric bill in half

Card 2: The Knight of Cups

  • The Knight of Cups indicates that things have taken on an emotional and intuitive way. Trust the strength of your feelings. . . as emotion and intuition valiantly lead the way to your destination!
  • I can assure you that this Knight of Cups is gonna trample you in half and wash you away if you don’t learn how to spell.  Plus, I LOVE scissors.  You can cut stuff and make ornaments n stuff and push-dig a quick hole for a seed in the garden n stuff.  I can cut my electric bill in half with my Cutco scissors thank you very much.  I can even do it at night.  They don’t lose their charge.  Always cut n cut n cut.  Where’s the glitter and glue?

Spampire Interview 3 with ~ VP Offers. Get 250 business cards on us

Card 3: VIII Justice

    • Justice indicates that your life is coming back into balance with a strong sense of fairness. This fairness indicates not to concentrate so much on right and wrong. Odds are you are a good person. Consequences and outcomes are more important at this time. Suggested to work to be considerate rather than being agreeable at this time. Consideration is a fitting use of the energies of Justice. Be mindful of yourself as you are, and mindful of others as they are. Your life decisions and the fabric of your unfolding patterns is indicated to be informed by your inner scale of weights and measures.
    • So, I weighed and measured out my hot glue.  It seems that only 221 business cards fit on you.  Get the rope!  Oh wait!  I have glitter and glue and scissors!  Hold still and I bet I can fit the remaining 29 business cards on you.  Want some ribbon to go with that.  No, we don’t offer fries with that. We grease the scales with ’em.

Spampire Interview 4 with ~ Wrinkle Rewind. Want the anti-aging treatment that has taken Hollywood by storm?

Card 4: XIX The Sun

  • The Sun indicates who you really are but forgot when you entered life. Smiling, you reconcile opposites. You have your own inner light serving to illuminate the way on your path. This will always come and go like the Sun. Remember, though, even when it is gone, it is soon to return. . . .like the sun! Visualize dawn and dusk. Note the marked difference between them, the powerful changes present between night and day, between day and night. Here it is indicated that you meet your inner light in a way that moves you to shine more brightly with the truth of the purpose you feel. Shining brightly, feeling who you are, be refreshed both inside and out! The Sun card indicates that you will experience your own glory and respect what you have to offer. Honor and utilize your own gains, feel your pleasures, experience your triumphs. With your refreshed brightness enthusiastically reap your success! This is a time where you are more visible, and your way feels bright.
  • Storm?  Hollywood?  Even the card says it’s pretty sunny there.  Are you repackaging sunscreen with aloe and facial toner again?  Ahhh, cummon.  We all know that Elmer’s Glue and paste tighten skin without fail.  Are Ya using that?  Back to kindegarten to paste stuff up . . . oh, I can do that in my office!  Where are the milk and cookies?  Oh, I was right at first.  Off to kindegarten I go! COOKIES!  Maybe cookies can help cut “you” electric bill in half.  They certainly fire me up!

Spam Interview 5 with ~ GXC Contact Services. GXC Advisory Board – The Realization of Benefits Realization

Card 5: 8 of Cups

  • The 8 of Cups indicates a freeze-framing in your midst. You may feel this as listlessness or lack of purpose. Move away from what no longer works to something new. The baby steps of new actions just poking through are also indicated. Let in the laughable of your current situation. Traveling to a new place, even if it is simply the park around the corner may help to clear things of their own accord. Feel free to pause your focus and deflate your troubled inertia as you move around in new surroundings!, even for a little bit.
  • Hmmm, 8 of cups.  Expansive plateaus of 8’s.  Deflate trouble.  This has GOTTA be a re-tooling by a former government employee who used to work at the Department of Redundancy Department. This has GOTTA be a re-tooling by a former government employee who used to work at the Department of Redundancy Department.  No really. This has GOTTA be a re-tooling by a former government employee who used to work at the Department of Redundancy Department.  Where are the minutes? No No silly.  I need the 2nd carbon of the 3rd triplicate set.  What?  They are in quadrupliciate?  Ahh, let’s do this again Redundancy Department style.  This time lets have carbon copies in octuplicate.  Don’t forget to press hard.  WAIT!  Octuplicate.  How can we tell the documents from the coasters?

Enjoy playing with

Here is your Wednesday Tarot Interview With The Spampires Warm-up example!

Have fun & then remember to forget FORGET! Or, at least don’t footnote it. 😉  Forgetting is for getting. Makes more room for the good stuff.

My reading of the 1st five spam emails that were in my spam folder this morning.  Use your own spams or the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this as content and queries to make your own Interview With The Spampires warm-up exercise.  Explore the natural leadership present in the Queens that is naturally present in you when you laugh.  Pump up your humor to prime your celestial groove.

Spam Card 1 ~ Gift Card Giveaway.  Answer our survey & enter to wins FREE gift card (Note their spelling.  Keeping its. . . hu hem . . the integrity of it can amp up the chuckles. Who ARE these people?! 🙂 )

3 of Swords

  • The 3 of Swords indicates a refraction in experiencing distorted feelings. Visualize your feelings as the heart’s illusion of a twig put into clear water. Watch the illusion. Express the expectations of your blind spots to yourself, or to a friend. Operating heavy machinery is not suggested at this time. Take care of YOURSELF as the heavy machinery. Flowing through change and fully expressing your feelings honestly. . . forgetting is often for getting!
  • So, it is indicated that due to the refraction and distortion in the grammar and spelling of this message I am required to ignore it.
  • Alternate reading = Due to the need-to-lern-how-to-talks-more-gooder nature of the grammar and spelling of this message I am required to ignore it.  Anybody got a pig?

Spam Card 2 ~ seekhispanicdating.com.  Looking for hispanic singles?  Check out these sites. (At first I thought this was “seek his panic dating .com”.  Better laugh at myself for that, and get a dang date or somethin’)

The Fool

  • The Fool indicates you naturally expressing your place along the way of your journey. You have recently completed a powerful cycle, and are enthusiastically on your way in new endeavors. You may have freed yourself from enforced ignorance or blinding preconceptions. Feel you’re the natural new directions you are creating!
  • Notice you are reading what you want to when you are really not interested in something.  Read what is really present to inform your journey more fully with experiences.

Spam Card 3 ~ Canadiana Pharamcy.  Viagra + CIALIS – SUPER DISCOUNTS

The King of Wands

    • The King of Wands indicates charismatic leadership within you and flowing from you. Here is a flow that influences things. It is indicated that now is the time to get done what needs to be done, and loves that it will get done! Enjoy getting things done! Once complete, it is indicated that everyone will be wonderfully pleased with the results.
    • So, thanks for the offer, but the King’s accountants brought it to my attention that: One Thing PLUS Another Thing MINUS SUPER DISCOUNTS means its really gonna cost Ya.  It’s a trap.  That is all.

Spam Card 4 ~ Surface Coatings.  Industrial Strength Floor Coatings, DIY Application

The 6 of Swords

  • The 6 of Swords indicates baggage dragged from the past or problems that have been dwelt on at length. identify your transparent beliefs and work to stop depending on them. Open your eyes to see what the world has to offer. Like the day AFTER a big storm. Also indicated is to face your problems knowing it’s time to fight them off. See what is really there! Amend your inner soil by simply letting go of baggage. The Universe loves presents and surprises, and re-gifts back great ones! Gift your baggage to the Universe like opening your hands for a bird to fly away.
  • So, the dog days of me researching (in an epic spiral of giving a damn and receiving a DAM) Industrial Latex Coatings in my early career are waaaaayyy over.  Thanks for the offer, though I have been satisfied with my Benjamin Moore M-55 Battleship Grey paints-on-at-33 mils and dries-to-an-11-mils thickness to cover exposed and finished foundation ledges when I incorporate them into a design = bad detail = This is how I fixed it on a remodel years back.  GO BEN MOORE ILC M-55!! . . . if it’s even still around.  Equals are equals here, hyphens are not multi-minuses.

Spam Card 5 ~ Enrique Enriquez. tongu (e e)xercises

The World

  • The World indicates that you are right back where you started and the journey is complete. A complete cycle is indicated. Look to new dreams, bigger ones. See the world IN The World card! View up through the looking glass of the obelisk from its base as if you are inside the obelisk looking up. See the point of its top right in front of you. Visualize the vanishing point of the top as a portal to infinity. Step smoothly through the doorway of your next iteration remembering this one. The World indicates a powerful completion! Indicates a powerful completion cycle in The Fool’s journey, YOUR journey! Enjoy this time as you seamlessly segue into the next phase of your journey!
  • Hmmm, I really don’t need The World to tell me anything other than Enrique Enriquez ROCKS!  I have tried EVERYTHING.  Making multiple addresses for his newsletters, making specific contacts in my address book.  Enrique PUSHES the envelope of language, and it seems the Big Brother of the algorhythms that are usually right on the money to even discern new email that is or is not spam . . . they have NO ability so work with Enrique’s wonderful surrealism.  Ahhhh, to have Andre Breton’s email, too.  HAIL ENRIQUE!  I can’t keep your emails out of spam, though I mark them NOT SPAM every time and then read them.  Keep up THE WORLD of great work Enrique!

Enjoy playing

Magical Blessings to you as you prime your pumper and pump up the volume on your celestial groove!  Bring YOU to the table to enliven your Tarot readings in the higher octave way of YOU!

Tarot. Mystereum. The Presence of Strength + Bonus Exercise

Tarot. Mystereum. The Presence of Strength + Bonus Exercise

Throughout Tarot in the Land of Mystereum Major Arcana cards make cameo appearances in other cards to help connect you with the Tarot story.

They cameo visually in many places throughout the deck, and add layers of exploration throughout the 192-page Imagination Primer companion book.  Major Arcana characters cameo in both other Majors and as well in Minors.  This Presence-of cameo feature integral to The Land of Mystereum’s Fabric is to lifefully add to and inform Tarot character development through the tools of visual story and allusion ~ allusion being a function of those coolio and quick criss-cross-applesauce connections that are made or you make that enhance the nature of relationships between things . . . make more friends and companions of things rather than pointing “over there” in regard to them, like the Narrator says by action, “you GOTTA meet so-n-so!”  I also felt that this multiple-cards-in-a-card visual allusion story technique furthers the Mystereum Tarot deck in a way so The Minors . . . though they can keep the integrity of their Everyday aspects . . . so that the Minors were not minimized.

Remember

that in Mystereum every Minor has at least one person or figure in it.  You beg to differ saying, “Oh but this card and that card only have a scene or even simply geometry. Jordan.”  Yes, they do, and they have you peering through the portal of the border.  Don’t you tend to step in through that portal, as it’s your reading, right? So, that makes 1.  Every card has at least one additional spectator or performer.  You!  Pretty good stuff in Mystereum.  Pretty good stuff like Harold or Milo or Alice or Harry but better. It’s better ’cause YOU’re there with a constant invitation, though.  A constant invitation to step in through the border and participate and / or watch and read the Tarot Mind Movie playing in your reading from your personal best seat!  How do you play with YOUR cards?  How do you watch your Tarot Mind Movies.  Are you a wallflower?  Are you a sunflower?  A bit of each depending?  Do you like to pause and research?  Do you like to sight-read the track at speed for time? Either way and neither other ways, Good for You!

This visual expression of the cards in Presence-of cameos

as cards themselves journey around through The Land of Mystereum is at the heart of the very structure of Mystereum, it’s Fabric.  We could call this opening up the epistemology of card divination, epistemology being philosophy of the study of how we know things.  We could call the card cameo appearances a Tarot etymology that expresses snapshots of the origins, the lineage of each card’s archetypal and divination personality in their ongoing and living births to be developed through their appearances in the Empress-style Yoniverse of your readings.  Interestingly enough, we can also simply say, . . .

Can You pick a face out of a crowd? Or, a hand?

“Cards in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum inform one another.”  Cards in the Land of Mystereum literally inform one another in the visual story of the cards where they appear.  They don’t start doing this after you learn them. They already do this,, and more-so start doing this after you meet them.  Be inquisitive.  Notice them in a “what’s that?” way, can pick their “face” out of a crowd so to speak, or a hand?  Takes a little doing of course, yet play it like a movie . . . “Who’s that? What is THAT thing or person doing here? Wait, is that so-n-so’s hand?”

Have some fun opening up and exploring this cameo appearance

Presence-Of feature in The Land of Mystereum.  It is there to assist you in card inter-relationships and to actively work with your intuition.  It is also present to further inform the Imagination Tools gifted by each character in the Imagination Primer book.  Pick a Major Arcana character in your Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck.  Then, one by one, go through your deck.  See what full portions of the card and what out-takes or detail vignettes appear in other cards.  Once you have walked through your deck and pulled a card’s hangouts, the Presence-Of places of the card you have chosen, ask yourself . . .”How does this card contribute with its appearance in this other card?  What clue to this card’s identity does the guest appearance accentuate?  How does it flesh out the card’s story?  Are these cards the same yet simply at different scales?  Siblings?  Friends?  Tenuously connected?  Dreaming or imagining in hmmmmms?  For example in the Imagination Primer the 3 of Swords expresses that it has never seen a Tower though has heard that one is formed when lots of unresolved 3-of-Swords moments get together.  Something beyond its current grasp is formed when this occurs.

So, on to the Tarot Presence-Of Strength Cameos

Strength plays 10 visual storytelling parts in The Land of Mystereum , appears in 10 cards.  There is the Strength card of course as XI, and as well XV The Devil, XX Judgment, XXI The World, 4 of Wands, Page of Wands, 2 of Cups, 4 of Cups, and 6 of Cups.  It felt very natural for Strength to appear in this way as a perennial story-thread of card characters that further alludes to and contributes personality to the sense of place throughout these 9 cards in The Land of Mystereum.

Why doesn’t Strength appear more or less?

Well, maybe She + her He-Lion really does, and then again there are 9 appearances which 9’s mirror express more components of her natural fluency with her inner animal voice.  This Mystereum visual character dictionary of storied appearances reaches out to symbolically spice up the deck in many places, like this 9-charactered stage in Strength’s play.  Mystereum is not a deck of card soliloquies or monologues in a play, but expert skill in play IN a (theatrical) play.  The whole deck is inter-related both in visual and spoken story, and each card embraces their identity as well. The Land of Mystereum is really a land, a place of divination in community with itself within and about where “All Similar, Each Unique.”  Strength plays 9 gig, 9 sets in the 78 one-act Tarot plays in Mystereum.

9 Strength Cameos

1. XI Strength

Strength appears of course as Strength ~ indicates a natural fluency, not control, a natural fluency with one’s inner animal voice.  She is beyond taming the beast.  Her animal is integral to the personality of her voice.

 

2. XI Strength cameos in XV The Devil

  • anima and animus, she-and-he-inner-spirit appear to temper ego. She’s on the left offering grapes.  She is one of two in control here, wielding fluency.  The Devil is not in control.  She-and-He-spirits are.  They can be imps themselves and play with earthly desires.  They also embrace their passions fully.

3. XI Strength appearing in XX Judgment

  • as the woman with offering-up-receiving hands on the right.  Who is the guy on the left?  And, that kiddo or midget on the left?  Does that kiddo character appear in the 5 of Wands?  We’ll have to see sometime in another Presence-of cameo article.
  • appearing here, she can be representative of the power of a naturally conscious voice, the feminine receptivity to Judgment’s awakening or rebirth or resurrection or epiphany.
  • Refer to XV The Devil, and in XX Judgment she is on the right now uplifting newness, the resurrection of the perennial in a naturalized garden.

4. XI Strength cameos in XXI The World

  • Look closely up towards the top.  One of the hands gracing the infinity of The World is Strength’s.
  • This is a subtle cameo as she lends the natural voice of her living touch to The World.
  • Strength reaches in to focus the natural clarity of The World’s infinite and infinitely dancing relationships.

XI Strength cameos in the 4 of Wands

  • She peeks in from the (unconscious) left to freshen the established energies that are placed on the right as her energies pass into the presence of the magical Wand-orb centered at the base of the card.
  • A visual HeLLO bringing new surprises to enhance the already established energies.  She’s the one who brings those amazing pastries.

XI Strength cameos in the Page of Wands

  • She brings fresh energies to speak to Your Royal Court.
  • She’s up there at the tip of the Wand on the right.  Well, half in, half out like The Hierophant on the left.

XI Strength cameos in the 2 of Cups

  • She’s on the right ~ conscious.
  • Her inner-outer voice complete, playful in its natural fulfillment of giving and receiving at one and the same time.
  • Her outer, His inner.  She’s on the right ~ conscious.  He’s on the left ~ unconscious.

XI Strength cameos in the 4 of Cups

  • She presents the earthly treasure of room-for-another that emanates from the volcano, the volcano itself a Yoniverse of the earth.  WAIT!  Are there more than one?  Volcanoes? Yes.  Earthly Yoniverses emanating?  Would seem so.  What do you think?  The whole world feels to be a living and birthing thing.  Babies.  Geysers.  Volcanoes.  Chrysalis-Cracking them all, huh?
  • Emanate Wet. Flap. Dry. Fly. Evolve.  Repeat
  • Do your feelings fly as high as the depth from which they come?
  • Are the heights of your feelings rooted in your greatest depths?

XI Strength cameos in the 6 of Cups

  • to further expand established feelings heralded in the sky, you exchange with filling voices.  Welling.
  • Isn’t this YOUR Cup seen up close in the forefront?  Are you extending in a toast?

Best to your own alchemical team 

supporting your Self in Your Royal Court of Higher Self filling the seats of Your Court to cheer on your expert skill expressed in play!  Consider these characters to already have season tickets to cheer on your strong play.  There are no cheap-seats in your game of life.  Play well.  Play with the vibrant motions established by Strength and her 8 closest friends. Here is expressed quite a band of allies for your journeys within and about.  Play with the vibrant strength of their inner motion YOUR WAY!  Strength may also be a symbol of your inner light that both reflects and is also unmoved by outside influences . . . like the lion laying restfully near, and there’s your next Birth Card Pair, the 2’s Tarot Birth Cards ~ Twos To Pair. Want a little more in depth 2’s talk? Check out Twos: Birth-Placing Clarity.

Check out previous Presence Of articles to discover more about the coordinated dynamism present to support and further inform your journey throughout The Land of Mystereum.

Thanks for visiting!

Best to this “Presence Of” series more fully elucidating one of the naturally hidden structures that are alive and well in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum to round out your inner team’s work.  Who knew?  Drawing pretty pictures is the smallest part of my job, or is it?  And, the more you know, the more you enhance informing your intuition, the more you dance with coordination and the coordinated aspects in a scene.  If you’ve ever learned to drive a standard transmission car . . . and how are you with it now?  What about an automatic?  How are you with it now?  Similar to intuition I say, similar to Mystereum.  At first there are a lot of things to keep track of, and then you simply drive.  Strength’s energetic natural voice synchromeshing things, and Strength AS the core of confidence. They are both tangibly visual metaphors of the unseen and unmoved mover.

Explore your Talented Inner Inheritances With Strength

as you develop your natural voice into an ability.  Talents are innate, abilities developed.  They are also both whole worlds that can exist in the tiniest of things and the smallest of places . . . like the infinity inside you.  Find yours with Mystereum!  The world needs your voice in just the way it is natural for you to use it for your highest good.

Here’s Your BONUS Free Exercise

Need a vacation?  Wanna know how to make work into hooky at least until you can get one? Or, wanna spice up work and possibly even have the fall-out of more vibrant performance?

  • Pick two cards, any two cards.
  • Take them to work with you each day for a week, and keep the secret all your own.  No-one needs to know you brought your two giggling and irreverent friends from your morning coffee meetup with you.
  • Before you say anything that day, think what each card would say like they are speaking inner crib notes to you.  Then, say what YOU say.
  • You’ll create many pregnant pauses . . . and the uncomfortable ones around you might tend to just bluster-blow-up and frustratedly answer their own questions as they stomp off to their next dump-victim.
  • You may bring some vacay brightness to work that actually enhances your focus.
  • And, once you aren’t dealing with Bluster Bopy Gossip Girl above, this brightness may dance your interactions and presentations up another octave.
  • Give it a try.  It’s your responsibility, though.  I don’t blame Irma when I burn the pancakes. Forget indemnity.  Express YOUR inner inheritance talents of a natural fluency of your inner voice by developing it into an ability!

Till Next time!  Happy Thursday!

Wednesday Tarot Treasure Mid-Week Warm-Up

Wednesday Tarot Treasure Mid-Week Warm-Up

Following up on Monday’s Mystereum Tarot Mayhem blog, Wednesdays are for a mid-week mini-workshop for warming up when you are already into your week. Nothing to sign up for or schedule.  I simply provide you with a 5-card exercise to warm up your humor juices at speed in your week. Wednesday as hump day?  Neh, Wednesdays are for the higher octave of laughter, so life won’t be a string of Thursdays, or Sisyphus Wednesdays.  It’s hard to be too in your head when you’re laughing.

So, here is a great technique for showing yourself your own healthy, integrated, preventative armor that requires no maintenance. Humor AS a warm-up reading exercise:

  • to use humor to warm up prior to your readings
  • to get surfing on your celestial groove with humor.  Humor’s shinier than steel.
  • great exercise if you have a hard time saying “no” as a way to get past the silent and unsaid “no” by higher octaving your ability to say no FULLY to someone or something by stepping PAST your first reaction to get to a 1st and more evolved response with humor . . . as I feel that responding to things that getcha with humor often blooms gifts that were about to be missed.  Laughter is the shortest distance between people. ~ Victor Borge
  • Warming up is good for your muscles before exercise.  Warm up for your readings.  You don’t want to pull a psychic muscle or feel the Rx of not being warmed up fully. Let your smiles and laughter fill up and flesh out your tanks.
  • to directly experience how humor can be fun and very healthy, and even experience the health of being able to smilingly say, “I don’t believe you” as easily as The Queen of Swords does.
  • to use humor to find your own natural leadership like the Queens have.  They are certainly not bores, huh?

What do you see in a tree?

So, if you are similar to me and a lot of other Tarot readers, sometimes we see and read things in simple images, in a tree, in a group of people.  Well, when I made up this technique I felt what the heck, I woke up on the bright side today. . . Why not read the 1st 5 spams in my spam email folder?  They’re free.  I am pretty sure they will be there.  And, if this gives get me the opportunity to more earnestly search for buried treasure and misplaced emails in my spam folder.  Heck that crapola from Nigeria that occasionally shows up . . . Why not read the 1st 5 things I see when I open my Spam folder?  And, this technique was born!  I am doing this each Monday and Wednesday, so sign up and follow along . . . share, Tweet, and fly back around for some (hopefully) laughs.

Laughs are like geodes.  They open you up to the treasure of your Inner Inheritances.

Reading Spam Email As Warm-up With Humor.  Treasure buried in your spam? Sure!

I know from years of physical training that warming up and practice can often be taken way too seriously while one is doing it, and then you’re already tired of serious when it’s time to get serious.  Sometimes making too much of the same bores the dickens out of the expansion of warming up. When, simply turning up the music and naturally doing your activity casually safely warms up your suspension be it physical or psychic.

Do you get all serious when you throw a frisbee or watch a kite flying, or watch the waves at the beach?  Not many people will stare at a tennis court, though even non-surfers will watch the waves.  Even if you do, isn’t your staring a seriousness expanding at the level of a Magician’s full-on focus?  Magic?  Leads to expert skill in play, I say.

A Wednesday Warm-Up? A Scenic Overlook Segue In Your Week With Spam

Consider this a restful scenic overlook on the trip of your week, a place to laugh.  It’s a great place to stretch before getting back in there to ride out your week strongly.  Read the 1st 5 spams in your spam email folder.  You don’t need to actually read them, as opening them is sometimes not so safe, and certainly don’t click anything in there if you do.

Use the spam title as your inquiry topic, and the snippet of the first several words you see on the spam email subject line AS your inquiry.  Simple.  Title as card inquiry topic. Subject line AS your inquiry.  From my perspective I was probably going to say NO flat out if I even spent the time in the first place before clicking the flush of Delete.  I have new clients all the time, though, so a focused scan in my Spam before it’s trashola is a daily task.  So, I was already going to say “no”, and Tarot is probably not going to change my mind about spam email merit, BUT it can certainly flesh out some good laughs to prime the pumper before I happily and dramatically click DELETE TRASHOLA FOREVER, and OH YES I am really sure, with a grin on my face that washes them away in the next moment forever often cracking open the geode of treasure in the next thing I do..

Take the time to make laughter

Laughter 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 leave that previous moment or activity’s influence and really start fresh into your next activity.

Here’s your Mid-Week Tarot Warm-Up! Stretch, & then get back on it fresh! 

My reading of the 1st five spam emails that were in my spam folder this morning.

  • Use your own spams or the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this as a warm-up exercise
  • Use the Spam FROM or title as the topic of your inquiry
  • Use the Subject Line snippet AS your inquiry
  • Draw a card for each, and let the humor rip!
  • This is a great way to explore the natural leadership present in the Queens that is present in YOU.  Discover the Inner Inheritances of yourself as geode with your imagination.  No need to crack yourself open. Pump up your humor to discover and amp and prime your celestial groove more vibrantly!

5-Card Warm-Up Exercise.  Spam to Geode to HUMOR TREASURE!

Spam Card 1 ~ Solar Savings America. Save money from one day with solar.

XV The Devil

  • The Devil indicates earthly desires rising in you. Mind that such feelings are nothing to fear, be ashamed of, or avoid so long as you are compassionate with yourself. Inhibitions can enslave as easily as excesses. It is indicated that your expectations can be blind spots OR magical and invisible connections between things. It is also indicated to be mindful of your intensities. Your tethers are loose at this time. Don’t let your intensities take you by surprise as you use the greater mobility. Earthly desires can light you up and inspire you and make you feel great! Unrequited anything may be hurtful. Abolish your toxins of fear and you may very well feel the purity of your desires. Ambitions you have may be frightening and dangerous, but feel how they can be less frightening and dangerous than the subtle decay present if your hands are idle. This is a strong time to start learning how it feels to be honest and alive inside and out!
  • So, to get the earthly desire goody out of this I only have to use it for one day?
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = I think the heat of The Devil might be more fun to play with than this solar saving hoopy.  My inquiry was wrong.  I much prefer the card instead.  THANKS!  ‘m glad I asked the wrong question!

Spam Card 2 ~ Belly Fat Free. 4 foods that kill fat and 7 food chemicals that cause it.

Knight of Pentacles

  • The Knight of Pentacles indicates bringing earthbound goals into being. Here is your place of consistently and steadily applying your highest aspects and working diligently and full-on feeling your task AS the meaning. Being very present with your actions at this time. Reasons may go wonderfully missing while you are getting things done. Have a spirited and active ball with your mundane, every day devotions!
  • So, I have to be honest that I first read “my inquiry topic” as Jelly Fat Free.  Like fat free jelly, and thought *where’s the fun in THAT?!!* 4 food that kill fat?? Well, my Knight of Pentacles knows my lipid quantities are probably all the same, though they may swell and shrink?  This Knight is not afraid to keep on moving without any other reason than he does.  The 7 food chemicals that cause it? More of this crap?  WhatEV.  I tend to know where my food comes from, so . . . it’s still food instead of wondering what percentage of my food is food and what percentage of my food is not food.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = Velveeta says “Food Product” I think.  Well, if you have to tell me that  . . .  though, it DOES make GREAT queso!  Thanks for focusing me on my belly.  Now where are those chips to full-on spoon this queso IN MA BELLY?!!

Spam Card 3 ~ Timeshare Resorts.  Curious about your options to sell your Timeshare?

Ace of Wands

  • The Ace of Wands indicates new life and making place. Setting a sacred staff or blessing your home with a ritual, say a sage ritual, can also be indicated in re-making place where you already are. Clear so you provide the strong new energies a more prominent home. There is also courage in the act of placement, the creativity in the placement itself, and the enthusiastic energy you create and bring in to in newly made places. Celebrate your flow as you increase the power of its force!
  • So, it is indicated since I don’t own real estate, maybe I will do well to look into it.  OH, I had a coaching session yesterday, and lo and behold . . . I still don’t own property, though I am planning to sooner than I know.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = What’s up with this Timeshare BS?!!  How did I get on this list?!!  OH!  A whole reSORT?!!  Csn the Ace of Wands introduce me to his Empress and Emperor who hires him to make place?

Spam Card 4 ~ Mary.  The video about mind control trick to use some girl.

7 of Swords

  • The 7 of Swords indicates sneaky & devious & sly & stealthy most probably hiding right in plain sight. Also indicated is to look at things differently, pause, and outwardly expand through blind spots that you are letting actively deceive you! Mirror them and play along. Hide in plain sight, too, as you begin to move through them! It is indicated that you are not as exposed as you feel.
  • So, actually the trick is on me if I click.  Some girl is waiting with her index finger on the mouse to BAMMMM click if I do.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = Your evil sneaky plan did not work on me Spam Author Person.  MWAH HAHAHAHAHAHA

Spam Card 5 ~ Trade Magazines (2). iPhone Survival Kit.

XVII The Star

  • The Star indicates continually finding your cosmic groove and going for it! Eternal hope in the diamond-like seat of your mind-body-beautiful is indicated to be sparkling brightly! The Star card indicates the immutable and vibrant presence of your memories, your hope, and your knowledge. The Star encourages you to shift your focus and re-direct your scale without moving the gaze upon your focus. Even the smallest star provides a glimmer of hope. This is a bright time for feeling your possibilities expanding!
  • Wow, I thought an Everest Survival Kit was a necessity.  Glad I saw this today, though, before I went out and bought it.  I really need to learn how to survive that iPhone before I hit Everest.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = ??? I don’t have an iPhone!  How did you trick me into reading this card as if I did??!!!  The Star.  Maybe iPhone wants to offer me corporate sponsorship.  I promise I will wear your T-shirt every time I write this blog to keep me warm so I survive.

Enjoy playing With Your Spam.  You may CREATE some Geodes!

the Forgetting Is For Getting Laughter Warm-up technique from the mini-workshop presented here! 

Magical Blessings to this technique further opening up you up to your celestial groove so you powerfully bring more YOU to the table as enliven your Tarot readings in just your way!

And, Oh!

I’ve decided that as a service offering, I am going to leave the eReading Tarot For Tips donation button up on my website, and keep doing them for a while!  A one day offering on a spur of the minute thought really didn’t feel to spread the love very far. So, get your Tarot For Tips eReading at your convenience. It’s my way of giving back until I find some local volunteer work.

Happy Wednesday.  Laugh ON!  Laugh OM!  Feel it in a great week!

Tarot Wednesday. Mid-Week Warm-Up Scenic Overlook Stretch

Tarot Wednesday. Mid-Week Warm-Up Scenic Overlook Stretch

Following up on Monday’s Mystereum Tarot Mayhem blog, Wednesdays are for a mid-week mini-workshop for warming up when you are already into your week. Nothing to sign up for or schedule.  Simply a 5-card exercise to warm up at speed in your week over the Wednesday hump with the higher octave of laughter.  Hard to be too in your head when you’re laughing. A great technique for showing people the healthy, integrated, preventive armor that requires no maintenance. Humor:

  • how to use humor to warm up for your day of readings
  • how to get surfing on your celestial groove with humor.  Humor’s shinier than steel.
  • great is you have a hard time saying “no.” A way to get past the silent and unsaid “no” by higher octaving the ability to say no FULLY to someone or something by stepping PAST your first reaction to get to a 1st response with humor . . . as I feel that responding to things that getcha with humor often blooms gifts that were about to be missed.  Laughter is the shortest distance between people. ~ Victor Borge
  • Warming up is good for your muscles before exercise.  Warm up.  You don’t want to pull a psychic muscle or feel the Rx of not being warmed up fully.
  • how it can be fun and very healthy to say, “I don’t believe you” as easily as The Queen of Swords would.
  • with humor you may find your own natural leadership like the Queens have.  They are certainly not bores.

What do you see in a tree?

So, if you are similar to me and a lot of other Tarot readers, sometimes we see and read things in simple images, in a tree, in a group of people.  Well, I thought, what the heck, I woke up on the bright side today.  Why not read the 1st 5 spams in my spam email folder.  Heck, they’re free.  And, if this doesn’t get you to search for buried treasure in your spam folder that isn’t from Nigeria, why not read the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this?

Spam Email As Alchemy.  Treasure buried in your spam folder? Sure!

I know from years of physical training that warming up and practice can often be taken way too seriously while one is doing it, and then you’re already tired of serious when you get to serious.  Sometimes making too much of the same which bores the dickens out of the expansion when really focusing on your activity whatever it is.  Do you get all serious when you throw a frisbee or watch a kite flying?  Even if you do, isn’t it a seriousness that is more of a Magician’s full-on focus that is magical?  Expert skill in play I say.

Here’s your Mid-Week Tarot Warm-Up! Stretch, & then get back on it fresh! 

My reading of the 1st five spam emails that were in my spam folder this morning.  Use your own spams or the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this as a warm-up exercise to explore the natural leadership present in the Queens that is present in you and to pump up your humor and prime your celestial groove.

Spam Card 1 ~ Bryant & Stratton College.  How long does it take to earn an online degree?

VI The Lovers

  • The Lovers indicate vibrant joineries embedded in a mutual harmony. Indicates a coming together of lovers, of ideas, of energies. Feel the vibrancy of your confidence and purpose. Feel your wholehearted respect in powerful witness with your love. There is vitality at every scale for you at this time! Now is a grand time for enhancing and strengthening partnerships in your personal and business realms.
  • So, it is indicated that this online degree takes a concerted and invested lifetime which is too long for a degree other than a PhD of Next!  Face it.  With The Lovers here you LOVE being a lifetime student and teacher and master and student.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = You love the Idea Solar System of your life and learning.  Say thank you out loud to Bryant & Stratton College and smilingly hit “Delete Forever.”  Now, isn’t that a weight off your shoulders.

Spam Card 2 ~ Quick House Improvements.  Get your Home Improvement project started.

Knight of Pentacles

  • The Knight of Pentacles indicates bringing earthbound goals into being. Here is your place of consistently and steadily applying your highest aspects and working diligently and full-on feeling your task AS the meaning. Be very present with your actions at this time. Reasons may go wonderfully missing while you are getting things done. Have a spirited and active ball with your mundane, every day devotions!
  • So, this card is really making me want to get my Home Improvement started . . . except there was major remodel construction on the property for 10 months that just finished last month, and the remodel construction next door will be going on for who knows how long.  The Knight asked them, and doesn’t believe what they said.  So, thanks Quick House Improvement people.  I will knightly take your suggestion and start enJOYing the Home that has already been Improved even more.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = This Knight rode in to say this spam message was more than a day late and a dollar short.  When the Egyptians ran out of time, they would fill it back up with water, and I’ll hold this spam at the bottom of that water . . .

Spam Card 3 ~ Ultrasound Tech Center.  Ultrasound technician opportunities

5 of Swords

  • The 5 of Swords indicates an overwhelming sense of defeat yet ignores the ego throwing a tantrum about it afterwards. Feel strongly that you do not need to perfect yourself to be loved at this time. Wash up on your own shore after the storm has broken. Feel the calm AFTER your storm. Careful reassessments and subtle movements are indicated to get out of your heart knot. Wipe your brow and move forward slowly with big breaths.
  • So, it is indicated to get all this sand off of me after sliding up on the shore after that ultra loud storm. . . and bitch about that high-pitched noise that cracked the chrome plating off of all the cars in the neighborhood.  Oops.  I won’t tell. Somehow, though, the alarms didn’t go off.  Interesting.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading =  CRACK OF THE BAT!  Now THAT was an ultra sound!

Spam Card 4 ~ Franchise opportunities.  Should you start your own business with a franchise?

XI Strength

  • Strength indicates mastering self-control and taming fears or impulses. Feel infinite fortitude and self-restraint while incorporating your voice at this time. Visualize a sprinter sitting, a tiger napping. Strength is not indicated to tame your beast, but to harness your voice. A simple way is indicated. A simple gesture will establish your direction as your strength is naturally present. Anything more than necessary may cause decay. Understand you are very powerful at this time. Be mindful of others as you are playing with more power than you may know. Step as only you need at this time. Develop an understanding that the strength of your presence is felt without threat, backlash, or skepticism.
  • So, actually today I would say that connecting the energy of your voice through a franchise sounds like a great idea.  Just make sure whatever you do doesn’t disenfranchise your voice in the rest of your life.  If there is playing a petty part, the answer is NO NO NO!  If there is playing for keeps that pleases your natural inner animal, GO FOR IT! . . . but not from the source of the spam mind you.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = Express your voice as the Mom-n-Pop franchise of YOU!  Be like Highlander.  THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!  Reduce the amount of copycat efforts you have in your life to discover strength-y overlaps, natural and seamless synchromeshes in a reciprocal spiral of giving and receiving.

Spam Card 5 ~ Vacation Resort Specialist.  The money or your timeshare?

Knight of Swords

  • The Knight of Swords indicates you are a generator of ideas and love being well-placed. Along with opposition, large or small, your conviction in your beliefs and ideas is very alive. It is also indicated further to defend what you stand for and that you love putting ideas into action!
  • So, it is indicated to keep you money so you can more easily put your ideas into action!
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = You may just get taken for a short and sharp ride with a timeshare.  Be like a Knight and camp outside.  Or, call ahead for reservations so you can camp somewhere that has a lobby.  Knights don’t pay when they are not staying somewhere.

Enjoy playing 

the Forgetting Is For Getting Laughter Warm-uptechnique from the mini-workshop presented here!  Magical Blessings to this technique further opening up you up to your celestial groove so you powerfully bring more YOU to the table as enliven your Tarot readings in just your way!

And, Oh!

Yesterday’s Tarot For Tips Tuesday was such a success, and I so enjoyed the responses I received . . . I’ve decided that as a service offering, I am going to leave the Tarot For Tips donation button up on my website, and keep doing them for a while!  A one day offering on a spur of the minute thought really doesn’t spread the love very far.

Sunday Tarot Services. Ace and Queen and Major

Sunday Services . . .

Short thoughts and visual arias on synchromeshed Tarot cards.

The Ace of Cups and The Queen of Pentacles and Judgment

May you perennially well up with clean emotion, and may brand new things always be waiting in your wings to enhance your natural self-leadership.

Notice the Queen of Pentacles’ throne unfurling as Judgment’s wing.

Or, does the Mystereum Judgment’s wing furl into The Queen of Pentacles’ throne as a nod to her perennial and naturalized personality?  Or, yes both?

Enjoy last week’s Sunday Tarot Service

with The Moon and Temperance

Best to your own alchemical team 

magically mixing where there are no cheap-seats in your game of life.  Play well.  Play with the vibrant motions and emotions informing your intuition from The Moon and Temperance as teammates. Play with the vibrant strength of their inner motion YOUR WAY!

Play with the Tarot Dog Tags of Birth Cards (Shiny copper, too)

May the magical space between day and night that is twilight

also be a magical, continual space between above and below like the magical mixing enhancing strong identities that is Temperance.  May twilight remind you of the unseen and unmoved mover, and resonate through and through like the invigorating experience of a field of sunflowers.

Have a great rest of the weekend and a great week!

Wednesday Tarot Warming Up Workshop

Wednesday Tarot Warming Up Workshop

Tarot Wednesday Warming Up Workshop

Following up on Monday’s Mystereum Tarot Mayhem blog, here’s a mini-workshop for you right in this blog. Nothing to sign up for or schedule.  Simply a 5-card exercise as it came to me yesterday smiling big remembering the amount of laughter I had writing the blog, and that others conveyed they had reading it . . . I bubbly-faced smiled as I realized, “What a great technique for showing people:

  • how to warm up for readings and getting your celestial groove going with humor, as humor feels to be a healthy, integrated, preventitive armor that requires no maintenance. Humor’s shinier than steel.
  •  who have a hard time saying “no” how to not be silent about their “no”, by higher octaving their ability to say no FULLY to someone or something by stepping past their first reaction to get to a humor response . . . as I feel that responding to things that getcha with humor often blooms gifts that were about to be missed.  Laughter is the shortest distance between people. ~ Victor Borge
  • how it can be fun and very healthy to say, “I don’t believe you” as easily as The Queen of Swords would.
  • the natural leadership present in the Queens in action

So, if you are similar to me and a lot of other Tarot readers, sometimes we see and read things in simple images, in a tree, in a group of people.  Well, I thought, what the heck, I woke up on the bright side today.  Why not read the 1st 5 spams in my spam email folder.  Heck, they’re free.  And, if this doesn’t get you to search for buried treasure in your spam folder that isn’t from Nigeria, why not read the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this?

Spam Email As Alchemy? inquiries of Buried Treasure?  Probably not, though Sure!

I know from years of training that warming up and practice can often be taken way too seriously.  Sometimes making too much of the same which bores the dickens out of the expansion when really focusing on your activity whatever it is.  Do you get all serious when you throw a frisbee or watch a kite flying?  Even if you do, isn’t it a seriousness that is more of a Magician’s full-on focus that is magical?  Expert skill in play I say.

So, here is your Wednesday Tarot Warming Up Workshop Intro

Read the 1st 5 spams in your spam email folder.  You don’t need to actually read them, as opening them is sometimes not so safe, and certainly don’t click anything in there.  Use the spam title as the card topic, and the snippet of the first several words you see on the spam email list where you see the title.  Simple.  Title as card topic. Snippet text as inquiry.  From my perspective I was probably going to say no to them if I even spent the time in the first place.  I have new clients all the time, though, so a focused scan before trashola is a daily task.  So, I was going to say “no” and Tarot’s probably not going to change my mind about spam email merit, though it can certainly flesh out some good laughs to prime the pumper before I happily and dramatically click DELETE TRASHOLA FOREVER, and OH YES I am really sure, with a grin on my face that washes them away in the next moment forever.

Taking the time to make laughter 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 leave that previous moment or activity’s influence and really start fresh into your next activity.

And, here is your Wednesday Tarot Warming Up Workshop! Have fun & then FORGET!  Forgetting is for getting. Makes more room for the good stuff.

My reading of the 1st five spam emails that were in my spam folder this morning.  Use your own spams or the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this as a warm-up exercise to explore the natural leadership present in the Queens that is present in you and to pump up your humor and prime your celestial groove.

Spam Card 1 ~ Male Enhancement.  Do you want to increase your ejaculate volume?

10 of Pentacles

  • The 10 of Pentacles indicates prosperity and close relationships. A love of inheritances is also indicated. . .the kind you were born with! YOU! Practical stability and the tangibly material, physical world may be vibrantly infusing your intuition. Meld close relationships and prosperity. Enjoy this time of ties and enrichment where you celebrate your inborn inheritances!
  • So, it is indicated to be waaaayyyyy better to view my relationship with myself and others AS a form of prosperity, and be good with the solidity of what I have.
  • Alternate reading = You have plenty. If you want to enhance something, take wallet-enhancer pills.

Spam Card 2 ~ Easy Insurance. Do you need a $250k life insurance policy?

10 of Wands

  • The 10 of Wands indicates courage shown along your path. There is an agility and a wonderfully strong balance of all you carry indicated. Here you may easily tow everything with the grace of your own body. Each twilight sky prefigures the coming of the night just as dawn loves the promise of the coming day. Love your wonderful new challenges as the twilight and dawn love the night and the day!
  • Notice you are carrying 10 wands and moving forward.  Heck, carrying 10 wands without dropping them is a feat in itself.  No matter the precarious nature of your balance, keep your energy moving forward without adding anything.  You have a complete bundle already.  So, nope, thanks for the offer.

Spam Card 3 ~ Yaz Injury.

What?!! Yaz? I LOVED that band in the 80’s! “Only You” off of “Upstairs At Eric’s” is still the bees knees all pollinated n stuff.  Ok Ok, back to playing along, I’ll pull a card

Queen of Cups

    • The Queen of Cups indicates harmony in your emotional and intuitive realms. Relying on inner guidance and a flowing inner perspective that is thick and rich is also indicated. Your natural leadership is taking charge in matters of your inner life. Draw upon the wisdom of the ages with your emotions. This is a time when your strong imagination and creativity may sense hidden depths not readily apparent! Expressing your emotions confidently is indicated at this time.
    • So, thanks for the offer, but I think I’ll worry not a bit about injury regardless of what you name it, and concern myself more with going to YouTube and listening to “Only You” from “Upstairs at Eric’s.” I won’t use 20/20 hindsight, though . . . the head in butt vision.  You tend to bump into stuff in that Yoga posture. Plus, it’s dark and hard to see.  Eyes are open even if behind a blindfold.  Trust your vision and you’ll avoid injury.
    •  

Spam Card 4 ~ Affordable Health Rates. Insurance killing your wallet?

10 of Swords

  • The 10 of Swords indicates ruin and anguish, both physical pain and otherwise. Also indicated is letting yourself know that the worst has already passed. Rock bottom is a strong place to stand. Look up! Anything visible is probably something better, You have pulled through. take a big breath. Phewww!
  • So, the dog days of doing that are over.  Anything looks better from here!  I’ll look for those wallet enhancer pills instead.

Spam Card 5 ~ Your Faith And Love In One. Do you know how to meet Christian Singles?

4 of Cups

  • The 4 of Cups indicates seeing one’s desires manifesting in the first signs of their success. Good fortune and good luck are also indicated. A pause is indicated which can be seen as stagnation on one hand. On the other hand, though, there is a still and powerful observation present out of a thorough responsibility to what is being done at this time. Focus your sense of responsibility at this time that is indicated to be thorough and inherent.
  • Hmmm, 4’s would indicate to stop worrying about the labels and live instead. Look at the new Cup born of the volcano.  A treasure of the earth!  Grapes come to mind.  Hmmm, thinking about communion and singing, “la la la they drink grape juice and I drink wine . . . Thank God I’m a Methodist.”  WAIT!  Phew! I USED to be.  No Welches in sight, but who’s SHE?!!
