Maybe you want an Astro Art Chart and Astro Art Focus Chart Focus Art together for deeper exploration and discovery?

What’s an Astro Focus Art Chart?

An Astro Focus Art Chart is when you indicate a particular part of your Chart you would like to focus in on. For example: I wanted to open up and unpack more of the messages in my 10th House Scorpio Mercury~Neptune conjunction. And, it turned into quite the Site Plan (top view) of what I saw as a Temple Complex like the Akropolis. Here are 2 of my Astro Focus Art Charts to visually give you a further description. The 1st is the Focus Chart for my 10th House Scorpio Mercurius~Neptune conjunction, and the second is a current Age Harmonic Focus Chart:

When you place your order for Art Your Chart, include:

  • your name or the gift recipient’s name
  • birthday
  • birth time. I’ll use Noon if you do not have a specific birth time
  • birth place

If your browser does not show the text block to fill in the above, not to worry. I’ll email you when I receive your order and you can provide the info then.

I am committed to complete the first 40 Art Your Chart orders by December 14th in time for the Holidays for orders placed by November 20th.

Santa’s Astro Art Workshop is Open!

Part of my process is to sit with your Chart and steep in it to full immersion as I feel it fill my art tools to flow back out on the page to create an intensely personal gift With Art Your Chart. They each take care and attention and time. Please plan ahead and place your order early. Due to the time it takes, I will only be able to commit to complete the first 40 Astro Art Chart orders by December 14th for orders received by November 20th. I have already begun to lock myself in Santa’s Workshop each day for the pre-advertised orders to complete these super full and robust and fun creations.

Astro Art Charts are also a solid way to periodically check in and explore your Chart in a fresh way.

Spill Some Beauty

Spill Some Beauty

Such a Simple Feeling Today

I had the simplest of feelings when I pulled these two cards.

I just smiled and, Look at him. The regal Emperor from within his horse-turned-tree tiptoes, slips into, sneaks back to beauty. He felt to have sent the envoys of his own, two, cobalt legs to tiptoe back over to the 3 of Pentacles. The thought itself felt like, Oh, I just spilled a little beauty. It may be the shortest reading I’ve ever given myself, other than the times when I simply smile at the cards and start nodding like kelp in the ocean slow-sway kelping And meditate the reading rather than speak it.

Beauty. The mess you don’t have to clean up.

How can you spill a little beauty into your week today?

Art Your Chart is Born!

Art Your Chart is Born!

I Am Having So Much Fun

A Client

A client recently saw a Doodle With the Unconscious I recently drew-painted as a sketch to use as an Astro Focus Chart for myself to steep more deeply in immersive meditation with my 10th House Scorpio Mercury~Neptune conjunction.

Mercury~Neptune Astro Focus Art Chart Example

Can You Do That for Me?

Can you do that for me. Can you (He)Art My Chart like that? Or, Art My Chart. Not concerned about what it’s titled. I like that its a visual Astro Reading withOUT words. Go You! Can you do that for me, for my whole Chart?

Well, yes. Yes, I can! So, I assembled my source material. First, the Astro Chart. Oh NO! , I thought. Oh no no no no. We canNOT have that. Look at that thing. It’s illegible. The geometry doesn’t express the Astro math. Too much mathturbation and having to remember and lose one’s place and and and… oh, stop your bitchin’, I laughed to myself. Workability is how to make a diamond out of this misfortune. Hmmmm, what shall I do?, shaking my head. It’s simple. Fix it. Remedy that. So, I modified my source material from illegible to legible.

Then, I slowly hand draw the Chart to literally take it in. It’s like drawing blood in reverse. I pull what I draw into myself through my pen and the visceral feel of connecting with it on paper. It’s like breath for me. I draw it in. I draw it out. And, my tools are sacred to me. There are some things I will not touch with my pencil.

My compasses and pencils and pens and paints crayons and markers compose my Wand on my Magician’s Table. The paper is my Pentacle. The colors and shapes are my Cups. And, the swiftness of calligraphy-like strokes in the unconscious thoughts of no thoughts are my Swords. My compass set is almost 100 years old. It was my Grandfather’s. I lovingly set it as a cornerstone on my stylobate altar, the altar steps base of the Temple that lead up to my primary altar. My compass set is a cornerstone in life I brace against in life. What cornerstone do you brace against?

Compass Altar Cornerstone

There is no more hardline computer rendered Astro Chart once I shed that snake skin by hand drawing the Chart. The snake its skin shedded, the snake its skin not missed.

Writing isn’t difficult. All you have to do is sit down at your typewriter and bleed.

~ Ernest Hemingway

English is my 2nd language. I’m wired to write in pictures, to bleed in images. Imagistic writing? Sure, though writing in pictures will also do. Images and metaphor are my mother tongue.

And, then…

And, then the source Chart becomes a relic. It transforms into an artifactual tool as it rests back in place in its new role as a spectator as its work has been done. It rests back in place as the sketch where I draw in the Chart takes to the fore to become the form-giver. After this 1 2 3… from illegible to legible to a sketch where I draw it in… I draw it out. And, Art Your Chart is born!

Art Your Chart Is Now Born

C’est Finis.

Thanks for Visiting!

Mystereum Wands Gallery

Mystereum Wands Gallery

I’ve Posted About

I’ve posted about my Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer, Schiffer Publications 2011, in a lot of ways. I’ve done a Process of Sequencing Individuation Tarot Psychology synopsis with the Majors, and a 9-Part Tarot Birth Card Series. I’ve done a series of the Presence of the (insert Major card) series going through how in the Land of Mystereum each of the Majors visit and cameo in many of the Minors to bring lineage into the power of the Minors, give them higher octaves readily present without playing the implication game with things unseen. There’s been The Soul Seat Heartfelt Silverback Hierophant where instead of the Hierophant on a bad day, the stubborn and unbending traditionalist, the Hierophant is seated AS active wisdom born of life experience. There have been to 10-Part Mystereum Tarot Moments short, around 1 minute or less, videos For the Pentacles to date. About to resume on the other 3 suits… uh hem, 9 years later.

So, Today

Here are the Wands WITHOUT the perspective and bents of me describing them with words so you can dive in and see for yourself what the Land of Mystereum Wands are all about. No tour guide theme. No intent, ahhh especially no intent from when I was creating and making them. They graduated from me. Now, they speak for themselves in the ways they’ve grown to speak to you, your way. If there are caption comments in the images, simply click for a large view. I imagine the caption will scale out of being text graffiti that interferes with the larger image. What do the Mystereum Wands say to you?

Intention is over-rated. It is simply vastly more important the way an idea or intent comes across. Can be the heartbeat pulsing actions to life, though the actions are going to speak louder than the intent words.

Intention is over-rated. It is simply vastly more important the way an idea or intent comes across

~ Jordan Hoggard at a BBQ in 1993, Denver Colorado. Thanks Joe B. for writing the 1st sentence of the 1st part on your white board. Otherwise, this statement would have most likely been lost.

Enjoy the Mystereum Wands with my words shed like chaff from wheat in the wind. All image. All your perspective. Personally, my Minor Arcana order is Pentacles, Wands, Cups, Swords. Mostly, due to it takes all elements to put a sword together from earthly materials, to fire and smelting and melting and forging and and folding and annealing ( or not if pre-mature), to water set up clean for quenching in the quickening douse to temper… to air… to… make a sword. May be limiting. May be expansive. AN order that may be able to be shed like chaff from wheat in the wind. The snake its skin shedded. The snake, its skin not missed.

Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer Tarot deck + 192-page companion book boxed set published by Schiffer Publications in 2011 is available on Amazon. Here’s a link to my Shop where there’s a direct link to Mystereum on Amazon.

Give the Kids the MBTI Early

To Give Children the MBTI or Not

Age restrictions on the MBTI? Ha! 

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. (and Women)

~ Frederick Douglass

And, I will add: Adults need therapy to inspect their expectations. Children simply need healthy formatives, of which the over-generalization and apt though at the same time vague MBTI can be a solid tool for self-awareness. Why wait until adulthood to Know Thyself. If one starts with that in childhood, the lifelong pursuit of Self-clarity Is an FICP — Functionally-Interrelated-Component-Part — one of many.

I find it relatively farcical to shield children from most anything. What of times of war or famine or plague or… penademic? Children oftentimes function with more curiosity and wonderment than the I’d-rather-not-see-that denial of many adults.

Frankly, hand them the MBTI with, “Hey, try this and let me know how it feels to you.” I gather children’s responses might expand and desiccate and condense the MBTI to be something more than an average of averages. Heck, they might even evolve it into the Both~And of its powerful potential rather than its current Either/Or that expresses its less than powerful limits.

The MBTI is Simply One of Many Tools

The MBTI is simply one of many tools. And, just because one has a hammer in hand does not mean to only go around looking for nails.

Oh, and by the way, Jung was not raptured into enlightenment by a demon. It was a Daemon. There’s a difference.

Children are not mature enough for the MBTI? Shaking head. Maybe the MBTI is not evolved enough for them to resonate as being a natural expression. When I uncloak that veiled statement, it sounds like people who are adverse to give children the MBTI are saying maturity is really simply admonishing children for being honest to supplant the learned mirages and blind spots of Adulthood.

Yellow Car Syndrome

I have a concept. It’s called Yellow Car Syndrome. In 2005 when I went to buy a brand new car I decided to let serendipity take the reins and I dispensed with all the education from Consumer Reports I had. It was time to let the mind forget as the body remembered. Time to dance so to speak. Now, you know what you need to. Go buy a car.

There were ZERO yellow cars on the road to the dealership. Not one. I would swear to that under oath. I walk in the showroom? There’s this bright, sunflower yellow Euro-trash looking car. I had wanted something bigger, though there it was. 3 steps in, “I’ll take it!” An hour later after paperwork, I drove it off the lot. There must have been 50 yellow cars on the road in the 20+ mile trek back home. Point being, until I saw the yellow car, I was incapable of seeing it. Same with MBTI. Give it to them early. They’ll play with it and basically evolve with their own, personal, yellow car syllabus. By adulthood their personality won;t be a limiting thing needing therapy. It may very well be… the next Carl Gustavo Jung, Julia Morgan, or William Blake or My Friend Fred (Nietzche). Or better. Anais Nin.

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anais Nin 

If knowledge is power, give them power early. Maybe by the time they are adults it won’t be a greed thing but a Self-Sovereignty thing where they are strong enough to be able to be gentle. You know, better to be a warrior in the garden than a gardener in a war.

In Closing

Water conforms to its cup. I see no reason not to give children healthy, Self-awareness tools early and often. Seems to me the unconscious is more powerful than to be bullied by the MBTI. Heck, it will simply become another yellow bucket and blue shovel for them to play with towards…

Know Thyself, and You Will Know the Universe.

KintsuKuroi of Self Readings coming soon…

Jung’s Participatory Imagination — Becca Tarnas

This looks wonderfully interesting. I know what I’m doing at 10a PST/1p EST this Sunday!

This Sunday, August 30 I will be offering an online presentation for the organization Carl Jung Depth Psychology. The presentation is titled “The Participatory Imagination,” and is based upon the chapter I wrote for the fourth volume of Jung’s Red Book for Our Time: Searching for Soul Under Postmodern Conditions, edited by Murray Stein and Thomas […]

Blog By Comment: What You Are Comes to You

Blog By Comment: What You Are Comes to You

Blog By Comment

Blog By Comment is a blog technique I sometimes utilize when someone else’s blog post inspires me and/or strikes a chord to resonate, and my comment in itself is basically an unpublished blog if I notice and allow it to be. I find that to be an important allowing, the noticing of the value you share When you connect. And, with Blog By Comment, the post that inspired me, and that I embraced by sharing here, can potentially do the same for others. In one sense these Blog By Comment posts are postcards sent from my Serendipity Itinerary blog travels.

Today’s Blog By Comment Is Inspired by a quote on Theresa’s Soul Gatherings site

“What You Are Comes to You”

What you are comes to you.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I really resonate with that, especially from a Brainspotting Therapy perspective. As you come into readiness to look into aspects of trauma with your Psychologist and/or yourself, and you center, and sync with the gravity/magnetism of what you are looking to address, that action of focus and sync feels to dial out a blip on your overall radar inside. Most often, if not in that same session the Part will present itself, walk right in, or peek around a corner, or….. It may be several sessions later (sometimes much much longer). When the Part that IS and has been living that fresh trauma inside you, when you focus with it to address it and zero-talk and over-listen whole-being style, it walks right in through the portal of your gaze from the perspective of the magnetic What you are comes to you. They gravitate back to you, and most often not like dino-killing asteroids in the Yucatan. More of yourself returns as each Part re-surfaces into the scene of your session.

I can view the whole Parts scene as the multi-facets of many personalities, one or several modes from each Part, though that would still be the Inner Child. There isn’t only one Inner Child from my perspective. They are often referred to as Basement Children in Brainspotting that are hidden or hid themselves away. There’s one, at least one, for each and every trauma that peeled them off to be hidden away unconsciously… OR that THEY peeled off from you at some point to relieve you pressure from overload. Those that peeled off? It feels like that’s the impetus of Shadow Work and Soul Retrieval work, though I shake my head No from my perspective to 2 of those. No Inner Child. No Soul Retrieval. ALL Shadow work, calling from the shadows. Brainspotting is all of that and more. And, when you get down to it, I almost didn’t believe it when the 1st several integrated. Done. I had been dosed with more Me. And, to make this particular paragraph even a little too much longer. Behaviorism? Behavior Modification? Pffsss. Not. B.F. Skinner can stick to torture techniques for the CIA where his true abilities lived. Behavior modification to me as a gardener is like taking a pair of scissors to weeds and stepping back to say, WOW, now THAT looks great. Sure. In a temporary relief way. In Brainspotting, that which was causing the behavior in the 1st place transforms into a message that it literally conveys to you before it dissolves to go back and live in you as more energy where it is naturally at home… probably from where it was kidnapped by the trauma in the 1st place. Maybe not in extreme or psychotic scenarios… though, I bet the jury is still out on that one until Psychiatry is made illegal because they medicate before they investigate. The Psychologist have it right. Work with what you have. And, I’ll personally say there’s a lotta goody hidden in the inner infinities of the Psyche.

You know, there really wasn;t a reason to break up the above paragraph. Sometime’s, Can I have a box for that? Leftovers anyone?

There Is A Whole Process

There is a whole process, sometimes instant, sometimes several or many sessions long. Not to embrace the Part, though for the Part to re-embrace you as you are now — it’s been incarcerated and/or living in the world of the trauma that created it, and you and the trauma that created it as a Part are all it knows. And, when that happens, that re-embrace, where You Now and the Part (from then) sync in reciprocality, the Part integrates, and/or begins to integrate. Most likely with no more words. None of that what do you think/feel/etc about that? Talk Therapy jumbo jumbo. There’s talk for sure, though that’s not the driver In Brainspotting. You are the driver, and meeting up with your traumas and Parts is the winding road. Sometimes the road is a flat-out foot-to-the-floor straightaway. Sometimes the road is a hair pin turn. Sometimes dead ends present themselves for you to discover other treasures. And, engaging trauma and integrating it seamlessly is the goal of Brainspotting — at least it was/is for me. Talk is often just more head chatter explosive flack being shot up in the air from the battleship of your EXPECTATIONS — Inspect what you expect. To engage and embrace your trauma. There is great stuff there when you face things.

Talk already occurred, or did not, during the session towards the invitation for the re-meeting of a Part and the trauma(s) that formed it, towards the reunion with the Part. And, as a Part integrates and the ablution cascade of tingles washes through a particular place in your body or your whole body, What you are now larger and more of yourself has come[-s] to you.

Thank you, Theresa. It was a solid experience to have that perspective strike a chord that resonated with Brainspotting from your post of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s What you are comes to you.

How Has What You Are Come To You?

The Temple Steps

Everyone

Everyone is different, just like everyone else. All similar, each unique. Maybe none of us are born equal, though I herald equanimity and that we are each born with equal value.

Inner Inheritances


We are born with Inner Inheritances, innate talents. Best to you as you inherit your inner treasures each time you discover more about yourself. Best to those talents being something you develop into abilities that support the clarity of vision of just the way you were born to see.

Your Life, Your Way

You are a Temple, inside and out. May you be and continue to become your own Temple inside and out as your life experiences place the steps. How do you Temple yourself? What part of your life builds foundations up under your dreams to reach them and support them and realize them?

When you focus on the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you make an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you.

~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido. Translation by John Stevens in The Art of Peace

I’ve Posted About

I’ve posted about my Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer, Schiffer Publications 2011, in a lot of ways. I’ve done a Process of Sequencing Individuation Tarot Psychology synopsis with the Majors, and a 9-Part Tarot Birth Card Series. I’ve done a series of the Presence of the (insert Major card) series going through how in the Land of Mystereum each of the Majors visit and cameo in many of the Minors to bring lineage into the power of the Minors, give them higher octaves readily present without playing the implication game with things unseen. There’s been The Soul Seat Heartfelt Silverback Hierophant where instead of the Hierophant on a bad day, the stubborn and unbending traditionalist, the Hierophant is seated AS active wisdom, himself born AS a throne of life experience. There have been 10-Part Mystereum Tarot Moments short videos of the Pentacles to date which are all around 1 minute or less. I’m fascinated with how March can be expressed with depth in around 60 seconds. It’s like dialing in to Moira time, syncing with the internal rhythms, one’s own, personal mindful and heartfelt inner musical meter. I plan to continue the other 3 suits… uh hem, now 9 years later.

So, Today

Here are the Swords WITHOUT the perspective and bents of me describing them with words. Simply the card images here, so you can dive in and see for yourself. No tour guide theme. No intent, ahhh especially no intent from when I was creating and making them. They graduated from me. Now, they speak for themselves in the ways they’ve grow to. What do they say to you?

Intention is over-rated. It is simply vastly more important the way an idea or intent comes across. Can be the heartbeat pulsing actions to life, though the actions are going to speak louder than the intent words.

Enjoy the Mystereum Swords with my words shed like chaff from wheat in the wind. All image. All your perspective. If the captions eclipse the image, please click the image for a larger view. It will most likely scale the caption out of the image area.
