Mystereum Majors 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. 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.

Though, This Morning

Though, this morning I smiled, dosed myself with my own medicine of share the Mystereum Majors Outright standalone as a gallery, Doodicus. What about share the Mystereum Majors as a gallery so WITHOUT the perspective and bents of your words, people can dive in and see for themselves? No tour guide theme. No intent, ahhh ESPECIALLY no intent — well, if it’s already there in the captions, that’s just fine.

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.

And, there is was. Cool. Enjoy the Mystereum Majors with my words like chaff shed off from wheat in the wind.

So, Sidestepping My Intent, How Do the Mystereum Major Arcana Come Across to You?

Sixes: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Sixes

Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to your identity.

I will layer in Birth Card Preludes to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short statement.  I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, are best stated as triggers to remind one how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of your Birth Card combo with you in a single voice.  Enjoy finding your own path with these, and I look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of your experiences with them.  Have fun with ’em!

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like The Family of the Fours and Mystereum Tarot & the Twos on my YouTube channel — check out the links below as well. 6’s video to be released in the near future.

Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana and Courts in the videos.  Also, again, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well the Royal Court characters.  In Tarot in the Land of Mystereum the Courts are Your Royal Courts . . . so enjoy taking ownership of your Birth Cards YOUR way in regal and Royal fashion!

So, let’s get started with the Sixes Land of Mystereum-style, shall we?
XV ~ VI  ::  15 ~ 6
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 6, and thus correspond with the Sixes in general, and the Sixes Settle In video soon to be released on my YouTube Channel.

6’s Birth Card Prelude:

With XV The Devil ~ VI The Lovers as your Birth Cards you may often experience vibrant and living and healthy and intense earthly desires.  See how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 character as facets of one personality?
~ With The Lovers ~ you may often experience vibrancy in life, or deflation
~ With The Devil ~ you may feel healthy and intense earthly desires, or addiction.
XVVI = in your skivvies?

If you feel higher octaves, though…

~ Are The Lovers vibrant joineries living together in your harmony?

~ Is The Devil your resonant of your natural, earthly desires?

~ Can you feel The Devil as letting go of the goat-ego that needs immediate hierarchy right upon eye contact, to be maled and femaled so to speak to integrate spirited desires unique to each of us, and develop them with our partner?

~ Is The Devil card representative of Anima or Animus living in each of us like yin and yang? And, with the whole yin-yang as a symbol of mindbodybeatiful (yes, one word) spiritual and bodied Soul Gardener?

~ Can you couple and integrate The Lovers, and express them in a single word?  A made-up word of course, a neologism.  A single word? Is that too tall a task? How ’bout mindbodybeautifulI would say that the black dot is more than a beauty mark on the yin-yang symbol. What do you think? What do you feel about that black dot?

With this Birth Card dynamic duo where The Devil card is a higher number, XV Death can represent your Outer Expression, you yourself, indicated a warranted and natural, elevated expression of yourself.

Your Outer Expression may be how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Devil card is known for its ability to temper desire as it intensifies it, to make it more dense, more strong and ductile without venturing into being brittle, to build with pleasure.  With the Devil card representing your Outer Expression do you have the ability to make grand gestures while keeping in mind to direct their intensities? Know that your natural intensities are an asset. Does this attribute fit you without constriction?

Keep sight to fully steer and orchestrate your momentum as you continually tailor the intensity of your energy levels. The Devil as your Outer Expression may also present as joy experiencing earthly desires. It can flip itself to be a turtle on its back, though, and present as addiction. Desires building in to and up to pleasure are great! Desires skidding out of control off the track? Not so great. Flip your turtle back on its feet.

With The Devil as your Outer Expression I suggest to lend an ear to what you really like and love. I suggest to explore within yourself the earthly desires that actually please you. Not what your expected to like or do. What do YOU like? What floats your boat? Cool, and then that’s that, huh? Because, with the Lovers, they simply love what they love. They resonate together in fluid correspondence, coalesce fluidly, literally, in body, mind, and heart, never even near entertaining losing sight of developing each other’s identity, or numbing one another’s intensities which may have brought them together in the 1st place, together, and together with Self when in solitude, or just about and about doing stuff inside or out.

The Lovers learn not so much from empathy, but actionable resonance with an oh, THAT’s what makes you tick. Cool, let’s do more of that. TELL me about that. Show me. In a basic sense The Lovers are the mind in concert with the heart when positively flooded with dopamine, etc. The indelible memories created by the psychokinetic chemical wash they bring to the fore in one another simply posits grand memories of, remember to do that again. 

The Lovers are a higher octave, epic spiral of giving and receiving, the kind that lives in the seed within them that is the 6 of Pentacles, where a whole oak tree of potentiality lives in a single oak seed. The Lovers are always present, to themself, to their selves, to their alchemical union, to one another, to each other’s alone time temple, and to doing so, they together construct the larger Temple of relationship.

The Lovers only continually know each other as far as they have come to discover themselves, discover one another, and do so together even when apart or looking into themselves. They might not tell each other everything, might not even need to use words to do so, though they both know and feel that as an integral and viable and valuable part of the alchemy of what is wholly theirs, together.

It‘s an is what it is kinda thing with the Death~The Lovers Birth Card pairing. They suggest to relish in, explore, develop, and cherish your natural desires. In fact, they promote their development as only they can, together supporting one another in reciprocality. They are yours. They are all of your own experiences, and now of your own consequence. That can be an amazing treasure when they are in action and you play with healthy boundaries as you interact. The things that have happened to you may not have been your fault, though they’re there. And now, they’re yours. As I am fond of saying, It’s ALL my fault. I’m just that powerful. Can you listen to and play with that responsibility notion instead of blinking, flinching, blaming, shaming, or gaming? It may be fueled more by workability than accountability.

I like to work with the concept of, Don’t waste trouble. If you have Parts you don’t like, can you speak with them? After you gain their trust and/or attention, can you ask them if they have a message for you? Feel into empathy, WITHOUT playing the bird with the broken wing. The things you most dislike about yourself may in fact be parts of yourself that are imprisoned in the trauma that created them. Maybe that’s why they trigger you so intensely so much. Richard Schwartz’s perspective in You are the One You’ve Been Looking for is poignant here. Trauma is always fresh.

Think about that. Trauma is always fresh. Feel into it. Of course it is. Is the only thing your traumas have known the infinite world created by the single moment of your trauma when they peeled out of you for your protection, so you didn’t overload into explosion?

That said, though, hasn’t your trauma lived in them since them? The intensity of the indentured imprisonment of your traumas only grows over time as their unresolved environments continue. What message do they have for you? Understand to respect their place. Happy, sad, glad, and/or mad, they may have grown to immense proportions. May I suggest to allow them to vent to come nearer your trust? May I suggest Powerful Self-Witness? Maybe, this is a quality of Soul Retrieval work? Or, your Soul Gardener weeding and amending the soil all the white reaping, occasionally having treasured moments, daily, in each moment?

I suggest to mind people that present as an Angler Fish person just waiting to consume you after dosing you with shame to lull you, as they are basically lazy and opportunistic loathing working through things… versus feeling into what simply strikes chords on the harp of your heart strings to resonate and gives you joy, and maybe the ablution cascade of tingles through you when that occurs?

Note that I do not disdain or otherwise pejoratively judge lazy people. Just being lazy doesn’t constitute an Angler Fish type of person — read in: narcissist, narcissistic sociopathy, Heck, Bill Gates framed lazy people in a whole ‘ nother light. I will always choose a lazy person to do a difficult job because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it. Give your most complex problems to a group of the laziest people on your team. Make a group out of them, and protect them from the go-getters. And, they will solve it in the simplest way.

The Lovers represents your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’.  Do The Lovers as your Inner Expression symbolize that you feel vibrant harmonies embedded in your innate joinery?  Do you have an innate ability to connect things together within life as you weave your experiences together?

Putting them back together again:  You may often experience vibrant and living and healthy and intense earthly desires.
