1  XIX Sun ~ X Wheel ~ I Magician

How does your innate and developed identity cycle your magic to pull more Water of Life out of thin air like Aquarius, The Water Bearer?

2  XX Judgment ~ XI Justice ~ II High Priestess

How do you resurrect wonderful inner gold from the past to marry your head with your heart and gut and give form to the formlessness by building down FROM your dreams to continually make them generative realities in your life? How, like a Taurus, are you unshakable and firm in how you place yourself?

3  XXI World ~ III Empress ~ XII Hanged Man

What are the most majestic qualities you have that emanate from your Creative Wellspring, your Yoniverse from which everything emanates, that both nourish you to be both afloat in clarity and live with the marrow of the matter like the structure of the ocean does? How do Mars and Pallas-Athena (aka Minerva) keep your Piscean, oceanic waters fresh with living strategies?

4  XIII Death ~ IV Emperor

What are the most key transformation drives you have that you work with to nourish and nurture how you dwell, how you make place, how and what you naturally integrate into your concept of home? Think about a Centaur and how that uniquely complete being stands on the ground and moves through life. Yes, Centaurs and Sagittarius more often lives in XIV Temperance, though when here, think of your allies. A human torso seamlessly segued with a horse body? The Centaur has two hearts, and two minds. What?! Two minds? Yup, there is of course the one in the head. Where’s the second one? It is the very earth the Centaur stands on, a Gaia Mind. How do you connect with the ally that is you while you connect with larger and smaller forces to get the job done? The Emperor here is not listening in for fumes of betrayal wafting through the background conversation. The Emperor has put down his sword and crown. His horse has set down to become the World Tree he resides within. He is not checking for betrayal. He is touching base to check on the health of the empire. Like the Centaur, how is the very ground you walk on as inspirational as the stars in your sky? I suggest to pull your 4 of Pentacles as a DNA strand to explore this in more detail. See the 4 people in the background? What? You only see 3? Ahh, yup, that’s valid. Until of course you see the 3 as a group with the spaces within and around them that composes the 4th.

How is the very ground you walk on as inspirational as the stars in your sky?

5  XIV Temperance ~ V Hierophant

How do you magically mix living forces within and about throughout your life?

How does your down-to-earth-spirit keep you grounded enough to fly as high as your roots go deep?

Like a volcano ~

Its head lives in the clouds

as it continually makes and remakes new lands with heart right here,

its feet firmly planted in the abyss.

Here, feel into the volcano at first more than the Astrological aspects of Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus.

What’s the marrow of the matter in your life?

6  XV Devil ~ VI Lovers

How comfortable are you with the intensity of your earthly desires?

Is addiction actually a cover stone for pesky inhibitions that sneak around like creepy crawlies under a rock within you? Suggest to not try and fill closed vessels. Inhibitions enslave as easily as excesses, if not even being their blind spot source. There is a subtlety and nuanced quality to the things you pour. Rather than waste not want not, feel into how Capricorn and Venus come together to birth your Growth Principles. Together, they might compose the Individuation Planet, aka Uranus.

How does Uranus factor into as the marrow of your matter, your living structure without stricture?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

7  XVI Tower ~ VII Chariot

How do you not waste trouble when life throws you world-altering curve balls? How do you lean into the dissonance of those kinds of times to make them World ALTARing? Understand what is toxic, though understand toxic things as not being standalone. Gasoline is toxic. Gasoline is toxic unless you put in the tank of a vehicle and start the engine and go VROOM and take yourself places as you utilize its intensity by harnessing opposing forces in their dance when you dwell them together in wonderful, alchemical vessels. How can you live with more Both~And with Dignity in Difference in your life? No reason to take on other peoples’ stuff. Allow it to fill the vessel between you, have it on the table and drain it as necessary while you work together to mine the golden nuggets hidden there. No reason to work with everything on the table. Pick your poisons your way. Poison is simply too much of anything. Further, I see that as too much of a lack of connectivity which leads to withholding from yourself and others. That is isolation and loneliness rather than solitude, together.

How can you more fully embrace and gold-pan trouble by safely leaning into dissonance when it is present? You aren’t responsible to fix everything. Though, when you provide a safe environment for things and people to iron out their own kinks, with a little help here and there, you tend to start a process of natural nourishment for your environment both inside and out.

How and what do you gold-pan in your life? What do you want to gold-pan? Now’s always the time. Life is what passes you by while you’re too busy making plans. Plan like you might on a road trip where you adjust your navigation as required, and have no fear of U-turns. Control is a fiction. Navigation is present whether you smoke Hope on the couch or get in there inside and out there in your world and do something about it. What do you want to do something about?

8  XVII Star ~ VIII Strength

How are your natural, inner animal voice and your celestial groove connected to Nature? How do you dance them together? Play a little Gemini game. Dance how deeply you listening and connected you are when you speak to inform your intuition. How does this enhance and engage a more robust education and re-education of your intentions as they directly live in your actions? I’ll suggest to look into Pluto and Scorpio and the 8th House in your Birth Chart. Maybe add in:

  • Moira #638 who I see as Inner Rhythm in contrast to Saturn’s (Chronos) chronological time
  • Poesia #946 who I see as the poetry in motion of your natural ways
  • Hygeia #10 who I see as Well Being

What are new challenges to explore in your Life Sandbox with these 3 Astro bodies discovered in your Chart?

9  XVIII Moon ~ IX Hermit

Ahhh, and we arrive at the seismic waves within of the Moon ~ Hermit combo. What are the plate tectonics of how your inner structures activate, are engaged, slip and fall and renew, and move in and out of deeply resonate new ways for you? And more, how are new ways wonderfully recreations of your continually developing, natural way?

What inspires you deeply from unseen sources?

What moves you inside to tune your clarity of vision from a loose flame to a blowtorch tool?

How can you more fully and robustly and simply BE as the Moon is with the ocean, as the Hermit is with your inner world? What navigation tools can you enhance when your inner oceans, your outer seas, and your intuitions are naturally put into actions over time?

Oh, and 2023 is 2 + 0 + 2 + 3 = 7. It’s a Tower ~ Chariot Year. May they orbit this year as a Fixed Binary Star Couple in your sky to always give you a cornerstone to brace your navigation.

I hope you get some useful stuffstance for 2023 from these Birth Card Groupings and short snippets.

May they provide some catalysts for you to chew on for more of

Your Life, Your Way this year.


The Tarot School has a Birth Card Calculator where you can enter your birth date to determine your Tarot Birth Cards.

Or, have some fun and calculate your Birth Cards yourself:

Or, have fun adding your birth month + birthday + birth year until they reduce to a number that is 21 or less (21 Major Arcana cards + the 22nd as The Fool not included)
Example: December 4, 1967 = 12 + 4 + 1967 = Add 12 and 4 to equal 16, and then add 16 to 1967 = 1983. Then make 1983 = 1 + 9 + 8 + 3 = 21. 21 is XXI The World card.  And, then 21 = 2 + 1 = 3 which equals III The Empress.  So, the Birth Cards for this date are World ~ Empress, or World ~ Empress ~ Hanged Man. Did you know that some say that The Hanged Man is the Empress’ son? I rather resonate with that.


12 + 4 = 16 and 16 = 1 + 6 = 7, and 1967 = 1 + 9 + 6 + 7 =23, and 2 + 3 = 5 added back to the 7 .from 16… 5 + 7 = 12 = XII The Hanged Man, so the Birth Cards = Hanged Man ~ Empress.
Note: XXI or 21 The World. 2 + 1 = 3.  XII or 12 The Hanged Man. 1 + 2 = 3.  And, III or 3 The Empress = 3.
World ~ Empress Birth Card combo.  Hanged Man ~ Empress Birth Card combo

Full Moon in Cancer 1/17/22

Full Moon in Cancer 1/17/22

Click here to listen to this blog post as an audio podcast on Anchor

The full-moon-moment will arrive on January 17, 2022, at 23:48 UTC. In North American and U.S. time zones, that translates to: January 17, at 7:48 p.m. Atlantic Standard Time (AST), 6:48 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST), 5:48 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST), 4:48 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST), 3:48 a.m

Mt St Michel Night (c) photographer
Mt St. Michel (c) photographer

With the Full Moon in Cancer at 4:48p MST / 6:48 EST / 23:48 UTC it is suggested to intuitively and without words steep in Your Inner Home. Respect that the Sun opposes the Moon at 4:48p MST so they have both come to the table with a clear view of one another. Also, respect the Silence of the Moon as it also goes Void of Course at 4:48p MST for approx 4 hours to emerge in Leo at 9:03 just after having come out of its Void of Course to go Direct again.

All in all, I suggest to dwell with your Full Moon potential in the brightness of your identity in things you can touch and feel with the Sun for those 4 Void of Course hours. Find something you love to simply keep in mind, internally and externally hold. A totem. A talisman. Then, as the Moon goes Direct, layer in the brightness of Leo identity qualities. As the Moon goes Direct, dial in and magically mix the Moon wave intuitive and deep knowings of your dreams together with the brightness of your Inner Home. Together, then flow them out into your external reality.

Simply live The Moon for the 4 VoC hours. This Full Moon is best to be prepared, and wonderfully pause in that 4-hour Psychic Synapse passage of the Moon’s VoC Silence. May this Silence place you not in holding or holding back. May this Silence be the focused and calmly intense power that is patience. May this Silence be a living meditation countdown to releasing your Moon Blessings into the world from that focused power within. Don’t be patient. Don’t count down. Just be. Find something quiet and enjoyable to do. Knotting. Drawing. Painting. Activities during the 4-hour Void of Course Moon without words would seem to be the most auspicious.

Since the Moon is Full at 4:48p MST at 27-degrees 51-minutes, look at your own Natal Chart for Astro bodies between 24 degrees and 29 degrees. How can you pour these Natal qualities into the Astro Prep of your magical mix?

vision, genius, poetry, madness, inspiring light from unseen sources. XVIII The Moon (c) 2008, 2011 Jordan Hoggard from ’Tarot in the Land of Mystereum’

How can you pour the above qualities and additional ones or fewer that resonate with you into the Astro Prep of your magical mix today? How can you further orchestrate your own momentum by pouring in your timing in respectful synchromesh of each piece’s most natural momentum today?

Big picture notion of all of the above?

Stay with the image. You know what you want to see and feel.

Review ~ ”The Cape Doctor” by E.J. Levy

Review ~ ”The Cape Doctor” by E.J. Levy

This book, The Cape Doctor by E.J. Levy, is a foundational piece of the enactment of LIVING the Divine Feminine in the world.

The living cadence Moira-internal-resonance of the rhythm of the words is purely from the Creative Wellspring. The feel is proetic, full-on poetic cadences and rhythm in prose. So viscerally easy to experience fully in its pain and love and sorrow and volcanic splendors of beauty. I found the overall story to be a poem of life barely veiled in prose which lives in support of a life-affirming spirituality for any gender. Resonating with innate value, I was touched to the core, the Eros of life itself full-on engaged viscerally in the experience.

The Cape Doctor lives at the level of the power of Rainer Maria Rilke’s The Panther. Important story? No, nope, and certainly not. It’s not important. It’s necessary for health like beauty. Reason indicates here that reasons of importance are unreasonable. Here… Here is a story that is full-on in support of the Creative Principle and personal evolution from the Divine Feminine and its importance in life.

Here, with The Cape Doctor we have a prescient presence in the insight of a life being lived fully, intentionally, and maybe even with more trouble, though that trouble is not wasted as diamonds are made from circumstances rather than from misfortunes.

I felt I was filled by this story directly from the Master Gardener of the Creative Wellspring, just a pure pour into my experiential vessel. This story wonderfully dances with the likes of The Secret Garden with a fluid fluency. Here, with E.J. Levy we have a master writer’s voice and robust story indelible to the psychological experience of life… It’s not that its words do not disappoint. It’s that its story tells life IN its living full-on Both~And rather than either/or.

Wholeness is present here in The Cape Doctor.

Wholeness is here.

I highly recommend The Cape Doctor with my highest, Alchemist’s 7-Star rating.

Get it here or saunter in to SOMOS in Taos, NM.

A Tarot Numbering Thought

A Tarot Numbering Thought

You know, I’ve had an issue with The Fool in the Tarot being labeled 0 (zero) since I was seven years old. I guess, that 46 years is enough time for an idea to steep and let the cat out of the bag so the dog’s not so alone.

I’ve never seen a wild thing sorry for itself.

~ D.H. Lawrence

I do not think the O in the middle of the top of the card is a zero. I don‘t think it is a number at all or the concept of zero. One, all the other numbers are at the bottom. Certainly, a number 0 at the top could be a telling anomaly, like the head of the ouroboros’ (uroburos) potentiality to bite its tail prior to the tail forming, a “nothing about the caterpillar tells it about the butterfly“ kind of thing, though, I grimace at that with a pretty hefty ‘Nope.’

So, what do I feel from an artist’s perspective? Well, Pamela Coleman-Smith designed the Rider Waite Smith (RWS) Tarot cards. And, I feel the O at the top of The Fool in the RWS is a Day Sky Full Moon. I think that goes a long way to include everything in the card like a whole oak tree in an acorn. The Sun. The Day Sky Full Moon. The elements. The Archetypes all in an unseen place beyond much like the Buddhist Concept of the Disappearing Path indicated by the cliff’s edge right in front of the Fool. Then, all of the unseen things are seen, and the whole oak tree of the deck is in the acorn of The Fool.

How does the O in the top middle of this card image land for you as a Day Sky Full Moon? No need to research this. You won‘t find any attributions as the idea is mine, a personal, Tarot acorn so to speak. My Fool sees the world from the moon, so the earth is what waxes and wanes and is New and is Full through cycles for the Mystereum Fool. How does the O as a Day Sky Full Moon land for you?

Re-Run ~ Dead-heading Pansies of Self,

I Culled Myself and Woke Up and Called Out

Death is the Mother of memory, the organic fertilizer that nourishes dreams, ideas, intuitions, imagination. 

What message do I have for myself from this experience?

Feel it. Hear it inside. GIve its resonance space to expand until it settles. Now, say it.

Keep it.

Pansies Are…

Dead-head your pansies in your garden, or pots, or urns, or wherever you have them. It’s a verdant gesture to keep them thriving and vibrant. There’s so much cool color when you do. So much cool color ALL the time. Dead-head the flowers as they start to wilt and drop them to the base of the plant. Death will then be the Master Gardener to nourish. Death, the mother of memory, will fertilize future flowers’ dreams. Dead-head, and that energy can go into the soil, and the energy that was going to that flower will strengthen the remaining full flowers and new growth.

patience, respect, renewal, resurrection, feeling unseen seeds cracking underground

Pansies Are Delicate, Though…

Pansies are delicate, though they are hardy. Pansies in the garden are no weaklings. Pansies are SO not pansies. Trauma works like pansies to a degree…


So many times after an intense experiences passes, I feel there is a tendency to say, Phhuuuuueeewww. Glad that’s over. Run away! Like Monty Python. Run away! Run away! 

Is it. Is it over? Is the experience really over? Or, is The End really Just The Next Beginning? Or, is the over simply that we escaped with our life? Or, escaped to be emancipated with more life, more of ourself revealed, now more evidently present?

Maybe, instead of Glad that’s over, somewhere along the line I’ve learned to dwell IN the experience while it was still fresh just afterwards, and then not have to dwell on it as some nebulous unresolved why-dafuq-do-I-get-triggered-that-way by who knows what that reminds me subtly enough that I don’t groc it until too late, for years to come.

Feel into trauma and experience wise in time or just after. Own it. Listen to its message. Allow it to integrate itSelf on its own terms. Continue WITH it as a new asset. Feel your empathy tuned up a notch in so doing. Respect and resonate in powerful witness with the trauma messenger inside. Be grateful to the person who triggered you BEFORE you act out driven by the trauma and not the totality of what you were the moment before. Express, Thank you for digging just there. I need to breathe and feel into that. ANd, if they are a solid friend comfortable in their own skin, they’ll understand, maybe even silently stay with you for the short vigil while you acclimate to the trauma re-surfacing, powerfully and respectfully and grateful listen to it in all its ferocity and candor and quiet subtleties.

Once Your Trauma Has

Once your trauma has re-acclimated to you as well — its birth to peel off from you to protect you and bleed off overload in the system and become a disconnected Part and be buried deep inside may Be the last time it saw you — get re-acquainted, and do so allowing the Part to lead. Don’t poison it with any words or expectations or presumptive putting words in its mouth. Allow it to speak, and do so on its own time rather than yours. The 1st session with a Part may simply be an awareness of one another session. Each encounter is different. It may leave and come back to check in later. Minutes. Days. Years. Simply reserve a place At your table for it when it presents each time.

Amending The Soil

It feels like fingers in black earth while amending the soil in the garden. If, just for a moment, I honor myself enough to be silent and still, not frozen, not in shock, silent and still, when I feel into the intense experience after I have washed up on the shore on the other side after the storm I’ve experienced has broken, I can feel-discern with a fresh clarity of vision in a new perspective framed by the experience before it evaporates. And, it informs me. It gifts me the message of my experience while it’s still fresh, instead of disappearing inside to become a trigger where the trauma is always kept fresh.

“Reflections” (c) 2005 Jordan Hoggard

Still Near It, Fresh

Still near it, fresh and wet behind the ears from my birth from The experience, before it’s truly past trauma, still focused by it and immersed in it rather than by me, a bit still hanging toes in the unconscious semi-liminal, it or I may gift myself a message from the experience before I fully step back over the trauma prison of Inner Beyond to here. Psychologists have plenty of titles for this. That’s cool. Creativity is not a diagnosis or a malady or a disorder. The only titles that matter to me are Tarot Reader and Author, Astrology Reader and Author (by Blog), Artist, Poet, Writer, Alchemist, Architect, someone who is Alive. Bold. Courageous. Caring. Empathic without being mushy… unless of course we have our toes in the mud… to grow a Lotus from the mud in joyous and as-if-without-thought-or will sandbox garden.


Fearlessness doesn’t apply here. I have plenty of fears. I simply don’t let anxiety kidnap them and torture and distort them into making me afraid. Guess that helps get off the mountain when those torrentially experiential storms come in rain-singing, Nature’ll kill ya. Keep breathing, and you’re still alive so you’re still a problem. Keep breathing. Nature’ll kill ya. Nature’ll kill ya. And, Nature will make you stronger when you relive yourself of the excess, when you deadhead the pansies in the Soul Garden so they keep thriving more and more strongly towards perennial naturalization each year.

I’d stay in that place as long as it took, not running for dear life to get as far away as possible, certainly not frozen, quite the contrary. Not fight or flight or freeze. Aware. Still. Focused. Patience is not docile or omissive. Patience is concentrated strength.

To In-dwell, To Enact

I in-dwell in the feelingsense home of the space, of the place, of my recent, intense experience. Sometimes 5 seconds. Sometimes an hour. Sometimes decades cycling around through its paces throughout my psyche. No deadline, no expectation. I simply make serendipitous stumbles in meditative momentS moving forward in a powerful and respectful witness of what just occurred. I don’t waste trouble.

And, I do that until I’ve psychic-gold-panned past the experience’s rough geode exterior to see beyond the rawness in the moment to the refined, potent message. I see into to the colorfully kaleidoscopic, living crystal, juicy gemstone, geode interior. And, the message comes as my head begins nodding. Almost without fail. Almost without fail is an acceptable risk to me.

I’ve had historical friends for as long as I can remember. Sometimes they are spectators, sometimes assistants, sometimes colleagues, and sometimes I’m the spectator when I Engage in process towards the message with something like: What would my friend Fred do?; How would my friend Bill B handle this?; What does CG‘s ‘Red Book’ have to offer?

How Do You Keep It?

Who Are Your Historical Friends?

How Can They Help You Today?

How do I keep it? I keep it with an open palm up to the sky where it would nestle in my hand. No closing my hand and holding tight white knuckling to possess it. That suffocates things. Embrace it. Embrace the person or thing as a talisman, a talisman of THEMself on their terms. No need to digress into Psychological Projection or Projective Identity. Those two are the horseshit born of not owning your own stuff.

How do I embrace and meet up with inner, geode messages?

Open handed, reciprocal figure to ground touch, the Both/And touch of the Yin-Yang, the apogee master violin bow single-stroke bindus connecting inhale and exhale, forming breath as prayer. That’s how I embrace and meet up with these inner, geode messages.

Adversity doesn’t build character. It reveals it. ~ James Lane Allen

Be there. Be present. The present is perpetual.

Boundaries that create separation simply induce self-imposed anxiety. Boundaries that establish identity and distinctions can dance and immerse in one another without dissolution. I love swimming. I love swimming immersed with another and their uncut intensities even more. Fun stuff.

Then, if you‘re still alive, keep it.

And, saturation needn’t be drowning in the distress of a situation. Like a high performance, high speed, X-rated radial tire — rated for speeds over 134 mph, it’s on you to take responsibility for how far you take it above that… they’re not concerned about a court case at that level above 200 mph as that’s on you top make sure — you and your tires are filled up to 33 psi for stability, and maybe dropped to 32psi for added grip in the turns in the cold? Yes. Vrooom, shift n corner, baby! Shift n corner TOGETHER!

Message Gifts Kept

From your experiences, what gems of messages have you mined to keep?

They are yours, I respect that, and ask that you do as well. No need to comment them here. Please comment only IFF if and only if you care to and are full-on comfortable to share them. Otherwise, they are yours to tune your Soul’s liquid silence with the resonant chords of you and nurture the healthy boundaries of the Royal Castle Around You forming you as Presence As Architecture, or whatever you decide you do with… (Hey presumption, get the effa outa here and know when to shut dafuq up)

May I suggest that Your Presence Is Architecture, Presence As Architecture. Keep it. Upkeep it. Nourish its powerful limits and boundaries. Fly as high as your roots go deep. Swim as deep And infinitely as your dreams expand within.

How do you dead-head the pansies of trauma to nourish yourself by respectfully integrating them?


What Have You Mined, and Kept That You Use to Enact Your Priorities? Does Form Follow Priority? And/Or, Is The Form Simply the Consequence of Your Form-Giver?

I go with the form-giver. Beauty necessarily has some weirdness she’s, some flaws. Otherwise, it’s just pretty. Like quick fixes have shallow roots, pretty is temporary. Beauty endures, as beauty evolves to continually be itself.

You have no responsibility to be who you were even 5 minutes ago. ~ Alan Watts
