Sunday Services ~ Something Personal

My mistakes are all OFLs.

Opportunities For Learning.

Every. Single. One.

They each contributed to where I’ve arrived today.

What messages have not wasting trouble gifted you?

What cornerstone of your life do you brace against that sends veins of gold throughout you from your Mother Lode. What Mother Lode of a cornerstone do you brace against to sidestep the shallow roots of quick fixes, where storms make Your oak tree take deeper roots… to become… A strong tree has no worry about storms?

What’s Your Kintsukuroi of Self?

*********

My Natal Chart (Just completed my Chiron Return and moving to the Saturn Return in 7-ish years. One prepares you for the next

Cool! Yes and yes on Taureans, and another positive Taurean quality is that a bull won’t budge an inch no matter how pushy, might just look the other way as they swat you away with their tail like a fly. 🙂

My Sophia Wisdom and Lilith (Dark Moon Lilith AND Lilith, ro just Lilith?) live in the Taurean world of my Chart. Interestingly enough, my Home, which is very Taurean has imply always been natural, and not needing of much attention. Taurus has simply functioned as an ally. When I need to vacuum and clean? That imply tells me my house is out of order. I vacuum and clean, and POOF, it’s back. I’d say that’s the easiest and as well most easily actionable (relatively non-existent) part of my Natal Chart.

Rather Than Simply Being Resonant With My Sagittarius Sun Sign

Rather than my sign, Sagittarius with Cappie Moon 12th House conjunct the ASC, I’m more my whole Chart, each grouping or featured character cycling in and out to ebb and flow as they pulse their magnetic influence into my life.

People In A Room Astrology

It’s like People In A Room Astrology for me AS a Sign, Where the whole chart plays, and/or rests. I see Charts as whole Astrological and Astronomical symphonies.

Yes, I’m a Sag, and Sag sits in the (Tarot) Chariot driver’s stance (drive standing up, steer with the ground-grabbers of your feet in balance) in the 11th House. Chariot most often sync up to overtake and engage from the side. They literally sidle up to you, or you sidle up with them, Though, the whole rest of my Chariot, my Astro Vehicle so to speak is composed of my Hanged Man~Empress Tarot Birth Cards as the wheels.

How I Resonate Publicly

10th House Mercury~Neptune conjunction in 10th House Scorpio (I LOVE this feature Or my Chart!) — very matter of fact and up front with intuition as a fluent language, fluid fluency of intuition developed from seamless segues of imagination and creativity surfing in over the Inner liminal horizon from the unconscious to open the Marco Polo hulls exploratory seeds and pour in mire ambrosis.

This pairing creates a very clear and Neptunian radar for me to inform both the seen and the unseen, and for each to inform one another as mirages and illusions are dissolved in… Instpect your Expectations.

This 10th House Astro feature leans me into being direct in comms and even stealthy physically (martial arts), an ability to be quieter than quiet = Silence immersed in meditation. All of that also composes a glass top lake teaming with life underneath, though a glass top lake ability of whol-body listening… to receive these ablution tingles that cascade in the body when we full y listen and experience another. Even in simply saying, Thank you, or, You’re welcome in the Eric and reciprocal spiral of how we give and receive.

11th House Sun in Sag = YAH! Born Ready!

Moon in 12th House Capricorn

vision, genius, poetry, madness, inspiring light from unseen sources

Moon in 12th House Cap — certainly no cork there, and the Moon won’t get swallowed by the infinite abyss of the dark and chthonic depths of the 12th House that ever-enlightens us to the power of the Dark, and the light that lives deep in the dark. Like in the Yin-Yang… going so far into the dark as to find light, and then diving further in there, worm-holing back into the light… to go so far into the light we again discover the darkened, wormhole-hyperspace back, and continually discover more. Each refreshes the other. The light and dark both live within each other as the other’s nucleus, their nuclear reactor deep well of energies in constant re-invigoration. DOes this create, like The Sun, your personal gravity?

who you were when you were born, Self, return, identity, bright success in context

Moon in 12th House Capricorn Conjunct My Ascendant (ASC)

Moon in 12th House Cap conjunct my ASC — there’s that imagination, intuition, reflecting like the Moon low in the sky over the ocean Casting a wonderful self-portrait of itself across the ocean, playfully, like watercolor. There enters my watercolor painting, and my oils were somewhat Moon in 12th House.

1st House

Mars. 1st House almost conjunct the ASC though a little out of orb just under the dawn horizon of the ASC in the Night Sky (lower 6 Houses) of the Natal Chart, that’s where Mars lives in my Chart.

2nd House

Chiron Rx and Saturn Rx~both in the 2nd House, though Chiron in Pisces and Saturn in Aries. The Rx feature (Retrograde) indicates they were parked there, very comfortably, Like Marco Polo parking a ship in harbor to unload the hull of the treasure from the journey. And, with Chiron being Saturn’s son (Chronos/Kronos) AND the asteroid Moira being conjunct within minutes to Saturn (making them one, complete being) there’s an intersting fascination with chronological timing that is most often driven mostly by my internal sense of timing, when I decide to rather than someone else dictating that. Moira’s domain is the internal sense of time and timing which contrasts to Saturn’s (Chronos’) chronological time. Moira is Saturn’s wife, Saturn, Moira’s husband. Chiron the son near. I’ve always found this a wonderful place in my Chart to till for resonances and persepctive.

3rd House

North Node 3rd House

4th, 5th, and 6th Houses nice and peaceful. Nobody there. Kind of like the Temple in my Chart for me. A place of Astro Pilgrammage I often visit for uninterrupted perspective to refresh and replenish. I consider the 4th, 5th, and 6th Houses to be my Astro Scenic Overlook.

7th House

7th House Jupiter — Playful and sometimes a bit more on the play with luck rather than planning side. That’s both a positive trait and a failing. 🙂

8th House

8th House Virgo OH BOY HERE COME my favorite troublemakers — 8th House Pluto~Pallas Athena~Uranus all conjunct in Virgo. I’m very comfortably methodical about embracing change and transformations and shake-ups when they arrive, just another storm in the garden so to speak. And, when I say methodical, in this context with these 3 beautiful troublemakers =, methodical means NO steps to accept the transformation except instant immersion. Dive right in or let it flood in, in an is what it is way. And, these feel to be the characters that also nourish my boundaries… very Both/And rather than dualistic, both sides of the coin in the same moment, abilities to venture over the horizon so to speak.

9th House

9th house Venus conjunct Juno to the minute in Libra and not conjunct to but neighbors with Ceres back in 8th House Virgo — The Neighborhood of the 3 Sacred Sisters I call them here. Nourishes my love of spirituality and washing up on my shore after storms have broken so to speak. Storms as ablution rather than torrential or terrifying, even when they are disastrous. SO much Nature intensity, and I just even feel MORE natural then. = ability to listen under stress and pressure and conflict without being defensive to full-body listening experience the expanse of what’s bRing conveyed.

10th House, See Above. As Above, So Below

Brings me back to the 10th.

So, There’s my Sign As I Feel It

So, there’s my “Sign.” When I just say Sag… people furrow their eyebrows like What??!! Where’s the wanderlust? Oh, I don’t have wanderlust. I wanderlove of serendipity peppered with little wanderlust side trips for serendipity and finding cool new places. I go places all the time, even simply sitting in my chair. It’s where my writing comes from. Pour the feeling through the fingertips. Which author said it? Oh yeah, Hemingway. “Writing’s not difficult. All you have to do is sit at your typewriter and bleed.” Hey OVER THERE. Yeah You Sacred Sisters. Will you please turn off the faucet for a sec. As they giggle and sneak a finger out to point to Pluto~Pallas~Uranus who then “US? Nah. Well, ok, we did do that. Just wanted to wash the rest of the molt off” 🙂

I mantra my chart with something I wrote about in regards to rites of passage years back, and plaved in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum.That expression is, The snake its skin shedded, the snakes its skin not missed… for … look at all the bright new colors.

My Natal Chart with Transits

SO many Rx (Retrogrades) currently. This may pose a difficult time for many, especially if you are not used to finding workability in intense situations and experiences. The Reason? RX, Retrogrades Magnetically drag if smaller, causing the need to downshift and re-sync. And, the larger planets? When they go Rx, they basically park. They are not stationary, though they might as well be like Marco Polo parking a full hulled ship in harbor after filling it with intensely vibrant experiences and treasure discoveries from his journey.

Take care not to be overwhelmed by the quality of everything all at once of multiple planetary bodies docking in harbor. Remember, this time will pass. And, what wonderful Nessies will you have allowed to inform your intuition to fuels your next iteration of journey?

A ship in Harbor is safe, though that’s not What ships are for.

~ John A. Shedd

Have Fun

Have fun if you like, playing With my Chart in context with all the Rx qualities from recently/ The recently of RIGHT NOW! Yes, it’s not easy. I’ve had some slowings. Some try to present as depression, though I call that low energy with great inertia. Means, time to downshift and gear in to newness in change wise in time. Though as well, dialing in to downshift into these densities and slowings and heavy weights… I decided to be the Customs Officer. Some things were off-loaded directly into the ocean At port as they arrived. I can’t be expected to do everything. 🙂 I did, though note them in my journal for upcoming explorations. And, off-loading them at port… I have some snorkel field trips when I have the fortitude and mental and emotional real estate to drop in and re-discover them as if experiencing them for the first time… when I do.

Have fun playing with my Chart in context. I’m open to teaching. I’m open to learning from your Astro perspective. Let the reciprocal comms begin.

What’s Your Read of My Chart?*

*no intent is made to achieve a free reading as I as well don’t read for free. This Sunday Service is simply a gesture to provide a sketch problem with something I have an inherently developed sense of, and can speak to. Fire away! I look forward to your reads!

This comes on the heels of my 2nd Major Accolade-Award being featured in Jessica Hundley’s The Library of Esoterica. 2 cards featured. XVII The Star and the 6 of Wands. Big gratefulness for this lineage legacy of my work!

Today I Received Word

Today I received word that 2 of my cards, XVII The Star and the 6 of Wands from Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer, are featured in Taschen’s newest release The Library of Esoterica by author Jessica Hundley! She has curated over 500 images in this substantial and exquisite compendium of 500 years of Tarot history.

I Am Proud & Resonant

I am proud and resonant that XVII The Star and the 6 of Wands are being featured in Library of Esoterica! I feel such chords of resonance and fulfillment being struck right now for the intense, labor of love process I experienced while self-publishing 1st The Mystereum Tarot in May of 2008 with a limited run of 125 copies. Then further, continuing to grow, Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer was released by Schiffer Publication in February of 2011.

A Fun Bit of Mystereum History

In 2009

In 2009 while at Ruth Ann & Wald Amberstone’s Readers Studio 2009 international Tarot conference, I head my name called out loud across the lobby. Mr. Hoggard!! A little quizzed, though it felt like an invitation to a birthday party belted out. It was an atrium, sound ricochets and direction isn;t clear from where. Then, a tug on my elbow. It was Dinah Roseberry of Schiffer Books. Mr. Hoggard. Are fond of ignoring someone in a random hotel lobby bellowing out your name? Geez. Come with me. Pete Schiffer wants to meet you. He has a deal he would like to discuss.

Wonderful discussion Pete and Dinah and I had. I was offered a book deal on the spot, and my contracts were waiting for me at home when I got back from Readers Studio 2009 on Monday.

That Deal

That deal staged my next iteration of The Mystereum Tarot where I would naturalize its perennial characters and evolve the work As a whole with the expanded book into the Soul Garden that is Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer!… where Tarot cards speak to you in the 1st person. Certainly no LWB in the Imagination Primer. That is also where the seeds of ImaginAction were sowed and lay dormant to gestate until March of this year When they stirred where on May 2nd at 1:21a they burst into life as ImaginAction!

In February of 2001

In February of 2011 Schiffer released a beautiful and wonderfully crafted Tarot boxed Set with Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer complete with a re-tooled* Mystereum Tarot deck and 102-page Imagination Primer companion book! See the center picture above.

*re-tooled for The Land of Mystereum to respect the rarity of original’s 125 copies.

2005 to 2008 to 2011 to 2020!

This honor of an accolade for this pair of Mystereum cards being featured in author Jessica Hundley’s Library of Esoterica by Taschen wonderfully pairs with Tarosophy Tarot Association’s naming of Tarot in the Land of Mystereum 39 out of the Top 50 Most Essential Tarot Decks of All Time. The news today from Schiffer that Taschen had in fact featured my Mystereum card images of XVII The Star and the 6 of Wands in their Library of Esoterica caps off a 15-year process from the 1st sprouts of the Mystereum Tarot in the summer of 2005 self-published in 2008, to the 2009 evolution of the work to include a 192-page Imagination Primer companion book in 2011 – deck~book boxed set published by Schiffer Publications in 2011 — to the naturalized garden of now 9 years later. What a wonderful honor of recognition to receive on this just as wonderful and warm sunny evening after the storm!

Here’s Tarot in the Land of Mystereum on Amazon, my website, my Shop – downloadable pdf products except for the boxed set on Amazon and now THIS HONOR FROM YESTERDAY on Taschen! The Library of Esoterica is on the bottom left in the shop. Look for the wonderfully riotous orange that is as well calm in the over of Thr Library of Esoterica above… and below. As Above, So Below… right?! Atman never had it so good… especially when at all, or both, or neither either and. Uh hem. Certainly yes, not no.

I’ve Loved Taschen Books

I’ve loved Taschen books for years. Everything they do makes coffee table books look like they need to step up their game. Super high quality books that are beautifully executed. Wha are super high quality books? Well, those are high quality books that deserve a cape! And now? I’m IN one! WHAT an honor. What an accolade. Ok, here it comes… !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!

2

2 of my images made their cut to 500 from ALL Tarot images across 500 years. As far as the span of 500 years of history goes, the 2 images of my work out of 500 curated into the final cut in this book 0.04 %. Across 500 years? Curated into 500 images. 0.04%? I say stellar. I am super proud of this. What is super proud? It’s proud that deserves a cape. 😊

A Mini Turbo Reading for the 6 of Wands and The Star Right at this moment? Sure!

To energetically give and receive in a reciprocal and epic cascade as I surf my celestial groove.

Please Join Me in Celebration of These Two High Honors.

A Poll & Lessons of Don’t Waste Trouble

CONGRATULATIONS TO

Clair Amara Foncé!!!!

Clair Amara Foncé

A winner chosen where all entries actually won. Karen Sealey of The Pure and Blessed Way submitted Amara. Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even submitted Clair Foncé. Oz behind the curtain doing a little name matchmaking alchemy made for Clair Amara Foncé. So, the WINNER is really both Karen and Timothy for bringing together two magnetic names that created a binary star system of a one name solar system! Hey, they gave the me the recipe. I just put it together and shoved it in the pre-heated oven. VoiLA! VoiCI! can’t take credit for that. It is their recipes combined that did that. Though, it’s delicious to me! LOVE that name!

I’ll set up the open poll soon. It won’t have a closing date, though at some point it will most likely close. A month? Months? We’ll see. I am going to rest in that regard from it, steep in what came out of it for me, personally. On to this post…

A Poll Gifting Personal Lessons

I firmly operate with the premise that there are no mistakes, that those are all OFLs — Opportunities For Learning. Also tenor into the concept of OFLs the degree to which I can keep facing something wise in time and keep perspective and wits with my other concept of Don’t Waste Trouble.

This Poll Experience

This poll experience shook out some interference patterns that were nascent, often called triggers. What were those? How and where I get frustrated, and by what. Vulnerability. A furthered ability to receive. Moving right along after taking the car into the wall so to speak, with a newfound evening of the keel after righting the ship…

How & Where I Get Frustrated & by What

Not that it doesn’t go my way or lack of control. I’m generally comfortable with the not-knowing and what may come my way. I cut my teeth for decades on deadline, always on deadline, never really stopping, while keeping perspective. With your head down all the time in the work, though, Narcissus can overcome perspective, hijack it even to kidnap it to dwell only within, rather than both within and about.

It’s when I dive in — so this is on me, I own it, shoulder it — and I’m not yet adept at say… A Poll… :), don’t even have the Learner’s Permit yet. Yet, there I go trying to break it, test the system, and I hit the gas. More below about testing and competing with. You see, I tend to run before I walk. It’s simply my way. I get the hang of it, and then learn by doing. Heck, I certainly End with a test of some limits to know where not to point the thing later, huh? And, hmmm….

Vulnerability

Out of nowhere what was fun With The Poll like a birthday party, it turned into a crazy lighting storm of the crash of tech things all around in the Poll Post behind the scenes and out here. 5/29 in the title when it was 7/29, and 7/29 in the body. Yarn hanging off the sweater so to speak, and when I hit the gas I basically tied a rock to that yarn and tossed it over…. DAYum. That sweater went quick.

Exposed! Vulnerable! Yup, I molted. The snake his skin shedded, the snake his skin not missed. For… look at all the pretty colors now refreshed! And, advisable, though I don’t need to necessarily crawl under a rock to be safe while the fresh oyster-flesh colors adjust to the environment. I do, though, advise myself some rest, and to turn into what it is I am doing here with my public voice from the heart on my blog. And, keep this experience. Steep in it and allow it to influence me as I continue to move forward. Solid, new ways of looking at things, and structure, to explore. Good stuff.

The ability to receive

I was paid quite an accolade in a comment last night. Thank you Princess Rosebud of Enchanted Seashells. I wholeheartedly appreciate what you expressed to me about my way. That is quite a gift I will cherish. Thank You.

Moving Right Along. Evolve. Always Evolve

As I move right along after I took the car into the wall so to speak, I move right along with a newfound evening of my directional keel stabilizing the righted ship. I don’t try to evolve. I don’t try to be evolved, though I own that that is a positive consequence of the work. I work to be better than I was yesterday. I don’t compete with me yesterday. I’m more of an Architect about that. I build back in with the importance of a strong cornerstone to brace against within integrated to be braced in turn on and supported by a strong and conscious foundation… of experience.

Rather Than

Rather than, I’ll do better, as that sounds like something one would say to the Principal when in trouble… because I operate with only one Principal in the Principal’s Office of the world. Me in Nature, as much as possible with my Natural Inner Nature Always evolving. Rather than that, shame and guilt were left at the door 3 years ago. Like worry, there’s really no reason for them, really no reason to cow, especially in the face of something powerful, intense, or simply important and/or strong.

Flying As

Flying as high as your roots go deep requires a free flow of seamless segues throughout the system. Synapses of comms between all areas across the highs and lows confluence in the Now. This makes for healthy growth. The growth I experienced in this poll process loosened up my roots. That made for some wobbly for a bit, some rumbles in a tectonic shift opening a natural inner fault line. It also made me a bit Icarus at the above level falling from the wobbly at the trunk roots loosened, not so firmly entrenched in a solid way.

The balance was good enough. No falling down, just a little freefalling for a bit,, and as I work with a net firmly stapled to the floor… the tech issues brought up a rumble from below, and my internal editor came to the fore in force. This is a Part Of me that historically, tirelessly, never stops. Though, this poll brought him up in a new way. Thoughts of, even commands of, Shut it down. Shut it down now. You look foolish. You’re now crying wolf. Cut your losses. Cut it out. This is an. Outrage. Shut down this poll now. I was already frustrated, not in a strong place, though I protected myself and my sovereignty with, No. Interesting. This was literally an old boss of mine. Nice.

But Jordan, you look

I said, NO. NO doesn’t mean ‘no.’ NO means STOP. NOW.

That one word is a complete sentence without explanation. Is all you do critique? If so, what do you actually do of substance other than fit, finish, and polish? 1 you’re attempting to kick me while I’m down. Why do you only come around then? Are you afraid of your strength, your power?. 2 Are you familiar with?:

As soon as you concern yourself with the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you create an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you.

~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido — The Art of Peace

Rather than coming off as a school marm busy-body know-it-all, what’s your actual message? I’m intensely interested… because I dwell in the place where I don’t desire perfection, simply excellence with flexibility, fluidity, and results… actionably. I tend to hear Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s:

Perfection is attained not when there’s nothing more to add, but when there’s nothing left to remove.

~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I’ll take excellence over perfection. Perfection would be death, nothing left to do. BORRRRR-INGGG. SO not in the Now. That provides a counterbalance to Daedalus and Icarus‘ story where Icarus flies too high, his wax melts, and he falls as his feathers fall out. Youth falling out of the sky like chaff from the wheat in the wind from poorly attached tools? Please keep that youth stuff. Simply integrate it more effectively as…:

A heart in love with beauty never grows old.

~ Turkish Proverb

That concept, nothing more to remove internally, is the immediate and also lifelong goal of the Psychological modality of Brainspotting. Nothing left to remove. Unfettered, one is able to live their life in seamless segues of connection. AND, I’ll add… wasn’t that really me posing the question to myself if I am afraid of my strength and power? Of course it was. I had a beautifully vulnerable series of moments as this poll experience began to unfold not even to get up to a house of cards. It just kept fawn-stumbling around. One thing after another, tumbling, free-falling. COOL. I have some new ways to learn how to walk! Work on the legs, the trunk. Work on that which supports me.

The Poll Trouble Provided Me Lessons in

Under Stress, How Integrated and Reinforced My Connections Are or Are Not

Because under stress is when you discover the treasures of your triggers. Face them. Address them in silence, and listen with locked eyes. What’s their message. After listening fully, listening through their pauses, and Rantras and admonishments and accusations and blaming and shaming and and and… and they subside to listen back, I ask, Do you have a message for me? What is your message? THe focused power of patience flows in to the space between and around us. It may take a minute. A month. A Year. Several took 47 years until ai was 52. No expectations. Once the question is out there, I now subside, give who I asked the full floor until after they have responded. It’s like a voicemail. Leave one. Wait until they call back. Leaving two or three or more before they respond? That can be another story for another time. Wait. Keep it. Keep the wait. The respect does well for the full perspective of the other to form in response. And also, they’re not required to. They may have responded non-verbally. Listen to that response as well.

Adversity doesn’t build character. It reveals it.

~ James Lane Allen… though, I think Aristotle said it prior… which makes me wonder if he stole it from the Egyptians… who in turn… all the back to my alter ego Grog… who I think went to the future to steal, Good poets borrow Great poets steal, from T.S. Eliot… who as we all know also traveled 100 years into the future to steal it from me. Geez. Maybe we should create a new word. Plagiarism. Think it will catch on?

What has caught on for you during the experience of this most every planet and asteroid (larger ones) transiting is in Rx (Retrograde) week?

Clair Amara Foncé

Provisional WINNER!

CONGRATULATIONS TO

Clair Amara Foncé!!!!

A winner chosen where all entries actually won. Karen Sealey of The Pure and Blessed Way submitted Amara. Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even submitted Clair Foncé. Oz behind the curtain doing a little name matchmaking alchemy behind the curtain made Clair Amara Foncé. So, the WINNER is really both Karen and Timothy for bringing together two magnets that created a binary star system of a name! Hey, they gave the me the recipe. I just put it together and shoved it in the oven. VoiLA! VoiCI! can’t take credit for that, though it’s delicious! LOVE that name!

Should The Name Be Provisional?

WTF Jordan, PROVISIONAL NAME NOW?!! This poll has been a total PITA. You’ve asked us to come back multiple times! The 1st was legit for the tie, though what was it 2? 3 times on this one due to technical difficulties. It was supposed to be cool and halved that vested anticipation… and it kinda got buzz killed, huh? Sorry about all the tech issues that came up. Why are you thinking it should be a Provisional Name? Another poll? Best 2 out of 3? What drives that?

Thank you for asking, and even more thanks for blasting your volcano at the beginning. That was full-on and honest intensity. Some people might run through and try to buzzkill that and call it a trigger, though I’ll back you up. Sometimes a cigar is a cigar, and a lot of times reasons can be unreasonable.You know, like that kind of relationship where it is in a constant lost loop of where are we? relationship talk? Instead of having a relationship. It sounds like trips as a kid: Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Experience the relationship not the worry. Experience the road trip not the destination.

So, I a, I digress. I appreciate you opening up with intensity. That’s a great storm, dials in to the weather of the conversation and whether I need Shorts and a T-shirt, an umbrella, a coat… or a Kevlar Blast Jacket Or The Bomb Squad. Hey, it is what it is when it is, isn’t it? All of those are fine. Nature does those intense things, too, and washes up on its shore after. I’m just seeing a correspondence here to the Civil Rights movement. Not that my blog will inform the ACLU or the movement — that by the way should not have to be a movement if people would stop being dicks.

Though, the technical difficulties shut down the poll automatically from a time zone setting that was not at default… or vice versa… no matter on that. VOTERS WERE TURNED AWAY. That doesn’t sit well with me.

So, Here’s What I’m Going To Do

I am going to set up another poll, and leave it open. At some point in the future… we’ll take a look and see. I do apologize to all who came to play in the fun sandbox of the What’s Her Name? poll yesterday and the day before when I was not aware it automatically shut down. I guess that’s why they have volunteers at the polls. I didn’t realize I needed to helicopter it.

I do sincerely apologize for wasting your valuable time yesterday and the day before with the poll doors not being open.

For Now, Though

Clair Amara Foncé will sit as the Crown of her Name.

May I Introduce

Clair Amara Foncé

Clair Amara Foncé

Thank you for Visiting!

Echo and Narcissus Compose the Phoenix, Part 2

Blog By Comment Post Inspired by

Elizabeth Rose Psychic and Tarot. This post with the image of the painting with Echo and Narcissus + Liz’s mention of the Phoenix catalyzed me to forget the story for getting The gift of telling it differently. Visit her site for the Astrology, though don’t be surprised when you receive a larger takeaway than what you came for.

Visit Part 1 of Echo and Narcissus Compose the Phoenix Here

Part 2

Trees with strong roots laugh at storms.

~ Malay Proverb
“Echo and Narcissus” by John William Waterhouse
Echo and Narcissus by John William Waterhouse

Excellent image for this post today. Echo hears herself, and that hearing comes from echoes outside in response to her voice from within. Chords are struck to resonate. She begins to connect. Narcissus sees himself, is hypnotized from within, magnetized and pulled inside to orbit only in that world where the external more and more falls away. He gets lost in there, chases false horizons in his unconscious isolation. She gets found. She finds herself connecting. Echo is the potential spark that lights his Phoenix to fire back up within and push his head out of his heart and resurrect out here, most likely with epic experiences from traumas he tilled that then unfold.

Flying As High As Your Roots Go Deep

Flying as high as your roots go deep requires a free flow of seamless segues throughout the system so synapses of comms between all areas across the highs and low confluence in the Now for clear perspective to not cantilever too far, and to sometimes intentionally do so to stretch and grow.

To paraphrase French aviator and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, perfection is attained not when there’s nothing more to add, but when there’s nothing left to remove ~ was reminded of this again on Cristian Mihai’s site… loved this expression… guess it flew away for a while. It also provides a counter to Daedalus and Icarus with Icarus falling, youth falling off like chaff from the wheat in the wind. Please keep that youth stuff.

A heart in love with beauty never grows old.

~ Turkish Proverb

That concept, nothing more to remove internally, is the immediate and also lifelong goal of the Psychological modality of Brainspotting. Nothing left to remove. Unfettered, one is able to live their life in seamless segues of connection.

Are We

Are we able to move through life like a Voyager spacecraft where the further it goes along through the solar system into space and eventually past the solar shock point and out of the Heliosphere, the more and more we elucidate, the more value we abduct, draw out of our infinite, internal well to build even more value in our experience? And, both like a Voyager spacecraft untethered in space continually expanding while it braces against its rock solid rock bottom bedrock cornerstone of technology within itself AS itself, the earth itself within reaching nears breaking the glass ceiling of the Heliosphere — in 40,000 years, just about 4K years longer than the clock in an old apple device.

Do You Have One?

Do you have one? No, not an apple device. Do you have that kind of integrated cornerstone you brace against, and that travels with you, and that dispels powerful limits present in blind spots for further insight beyond what you know and feel now Continually informs you now?

Kali Braces Against Shiva

Kali braces against Shiva while she dances on his chest. Shiva’s complete calmness provideS a foundation for no bleed-off of the power of her movement. Kali is not mean or evil or even angry. Kali represents 100% uncut identity of Self, and that is full-on intense. And, when she moves, her movement is uncut by slippage. Her fluidity grips and moves with all of her power naturally. I gather so natural she never tires… which gives a new tenor to the meaning of sustainability not so nascent in…

Never hurry, never rest

~ Goethe

At least from my perspective. You may have already experienced the milestone of that trailhead cairn.

Is the Heliosphere A Trailhead Cairn?

Is the Heliosphere A Trailhead Cairn to Future Space Travel? This, I’ll leave at that.

What Cornerstone?

What cornerstone in life like Shiva do you brace against to support building further value in your life In ways that are intensely good for you? And, by being intensely good for you, your presence is good for the health of the world.

Can you wrap your head and heart around the notion that putting yourself 1st is inherently good and not selfish? Can you wrap yourself around that notion where being self-centered simply indicates you have center, a nucleus, and inner Sun-4-of-Pentacles cornerstone?

Do You Ask

Do you ask the question about Center in Self as you brace against your rock solid rock bottom most natural cornerstone like this? Do you ask for what you need? If so, are you able to graciously and fully receive with a simple Thank You, as that is enough?

Do You Ask

Do you ask the question centered with your rock solid rock bottom most natural cornerstone as your nucleus centered like this?

Do You Ask

Do you ask the question with your rock solid rock bottom most natural cornerstone pushed up squishing you to the boundary of a glass ceiling of some life predicament like this?

Do You Ask

Do you ask the question braced WITH your rock solid most natural cornerstone integrated throughout you, Your Self and Identity AS your cornerstone Naturally…

With verve and flow

and levity and sovereignty

As you advance like this

In the united front of you?

How Can You

How can you be that glass topped lake fully calm and resonantly clear of gesture In action, your intent(s) fully engaged as fuel in your actions, while your wonderful Nature chaos of seamless segues in fluid fluency team with life below the surface continually informing your clarity?

One must have a chaos in the heart to birth a Star.

~ My Friend Fred

Glass Topped Lake?

How can you be like this Piece of Fluorite?

How can you be like this piece of fluorite so beautifully crafted by Nature and also cut, influenced — by one of our kind? How can you model yourself with a liquid and fluid glass top of the clarity of your boundaries cut and fluidly formed to be in the shape of You, from your work, AS YOU in the continual evolution across a lifetime towards nothing left to remove? And, with less and less to remove as you go further and further along, does that make life so much brighter and darknesses so much more fecund and vividly intense as depths, chthonic depths of nourishment?

Isn’t the Darkness Like the Womb?

Isn’t the darkness like the womb where we came to life? Do I say, OH, don’t want to go back there! I had to do all that growth n stuff, and development, and stretch, and expand, and I was never in control and my Universe fed me and I had no control over that..and, it was SO much work! I’d rather sit on the couch.

No, personally, I don’t say that at all. It just popped up as a hypothetical to bring up a question. Are we more afraid of life, or death? Death is certain. There’s something with a rock-solid handhold of certainty as none of us are getting out alive. But, life? Life is uncertain. Cool. I’m comfortable with the not-knowing, that which is beyond my Heliosphere, and that which is right in front of me that I have no control over. I don’t need control over it. I simply need to be in resonance with how my perspective allows and disallows how it influences me. Heck, no reason to let your emotions dictate how you feel. That’s part and party to low-grade starts in the garden of dissolution. Depression is a real thing. So is low energy from ebb and flow where a personal manual transmission allows you to consciously shift gears. Like in Mercury Rx (Retrograde) you feel the drag. Cool, Dafuqin downshift and recalibrate your revs in a lower gear than syncs up and aligns with the energies… that then begin to move forward differently and then YEE HAH MERCURY WENT DIRECT shooting you out of the turn with your foot on the gas.

You Always Have A Choice

If I’m required (by myself, I have to agree to it at some level — you always have a choice) to dive in somewhere, I Check to make sure it says Pool or Pond on the side instead of vat (of acid).

Vat of Acid, Volatile Oasis

A Volatile Oasis [(c) 2019 Jordan Hoggard] is where Narcissists and sociopathy live. No need to dive in there with them out here. You can disable your triggers in healthy surroundings, like with a Psychologist Or Brainspotting or similar. Your friends are there for you, though it’s not their job to heal you. It’s yours. They provide perspective, and hopefully some laughter.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

~ Victor Borges

How are you already like the piece of fluorite above with 2 such diverse faces that work together For versatility and being fluid without being 2-faced. Like Janus. Also, I recommend being fluid rather than going with the flow. Dead fish go with the flow… until of course you won’t to do a little body surfing.

33 psi

Are your boundaries pressurized up to 33psi and road ready so they are in the shape of you? Or, are they distorted bringing anxiety and confusion by deflation at some points and over-inflation at others?

One the road sometimes you deflate the tires for better grip. Sometimes, overinflate them a bit for more slide. Where are you at 33psi, and where are you not. Is that intentional and/or Natural to you? Or, are you affected rather than being influenced like putting gas in your car. Gas all by itself is toxic. Though, put it in the proper place in the vessel, the gas tank, and VROOM!

Where is your gas tank? How many?

Is health itself a sort of integrated armor throughout You?
