Tarot Shifts Focus

What comes to mind is an already-transitioned-completed Tower moment verging on The Star, where:

The Tower, rearranging, upheave-refreshing your Temple-Inside-Home . . . after all the smoke and rubble cleared, a small child walks up . . . bright eyes in the night like a benevolent animal.  The child starts asking you allsorts of questions which one by one in rapid-fire succession you answer until you have a conscious awareness amidst the benevolent barrage that you know all the answers and are seamlessly responding . . . at which point, the child sensing this, abruptly stops, and YOUR eyes begin to glow brighter and you ask the child, “Who are You?”  And, the child’s eyes light up, “I am You, only new,” as the child looks up fade-merging into you as you look up and see . . . The Star . . . Your Star . . . shining your refreshed sense of actionable and on-the-move eternal hope.

Best to You,

Jordan

Tarot Appearance vs. Reality in The Fool

So, I am a self-taught Tarot reader.  I learned Tarot by reading stories . . . the stories told visually by the cards.  That started when I was 4 1/2 — yes, four and a half.   So, I simply started reading Tarot before kindegarten.  It was natural.  It was a natural mode of the way I was born to see.  I now have a deep appreciation for that moment as a wonderfully proper resonance for a reader of any kind.   Books came much later for me.  They are a relatively recent phenomenon in my Tarot experience over the past 2 decades or so.  I learned Tarot by trusting my gut, my intellectually mindbodybeautiful connected-across-the-whole gut.  I feel we can learn not only in many ways, but that each of our ways, our personal modes of experience and expression come about by fully acting in ways only each of us can . . . by living our own, personal prescient remembrances.

The Fool

like appearance vs reality in literature

is not

about to jump

off of a cliff.

The jump as it were is a complete and encompassing thought in continual and innately trusted action.

The jump

of The Fool

is that when inherently trust-acting with the muse,

the ground terra-forms

under each and every

Fool’s step.

I have heard that going against the flow causes resistance and problems.

I know, though, that to fly, it is much easier to turn into the wind

and feel-full fill the sails of my wings.

Inherently trust-acting with your muse,

may the ground terra-form

under each and every

step you take.

May new ground terra-form under each and every step you take. . .

where the simple ground you walk on is as inspritational as the stars in your sky.

. . . may the ground terra-form under each and every Fool-step you take.

Risk is only risk until to take one.

After you take one, it is simply a step . . .

a step with the creation-make-it-happen qualities of bringing your dreams to bear.

Inherently trust-acting with your muse in YOUR way for YOUR highest good,

may The Fool bring ground to terra-form under each and every step you take.

May The Fool bring ground to form and support each and every new step you take.

May Imagin-Action support every step you take!

Imagin-Action to YOU!

Best to You,

Jordan

Tarot Forming Archetype ~ Judgment

The Queen of Pentacles’ throne’s left flank,
in the right side of her card.

Form was given to the formlessness
of her grounded station airy ness
by The High Priestess.

Hands naturalized in out of body and earthenly rooted
at one and the same time as she permeated all,
She took the station airy ness,
to stationary ness of a Queen’s throne,
A Nessy unknown now known as throne.
As Queens’ settled regal wing-feathers
solidly folded themselves in purple and gold
to sit regally naturalized in her garden.

The High Priestess, looking all directions always,
looked over,
looked over to The Queen of Pentacles to feel all directions.

While looking to her right. . .
The High Priestess formed the formless Q of P’s thought:

*Splay regal purple and psychic gold wing-feathered throne!

Splay!*

*Regally splay-spread your wing-feathers to stretch through twilight*

*At dawn and dusk regally herald a resounding voice to say

WAKE UP!*

*WAKE UP throne!*

*WAKE UP PERENNIALLY!*

*WAKE UP!*

*You are now no longer throne!*

*You are now called Judgment!

*Open EACH IDEA as they burst forth unseen!*

*Open each from their bulb- box!*

*Tis the SEASON!*

*Phoenix-Resurrect your throne-bulbs Judgment!*

*Open your perennial regalNESS in your bulbs!*

*Look at ALL that green out there!*

*Open the perennial bulbs of your ideas to the SUN

each when in their season!*

~ The End

 

 

 

Card Resonances:
Land of Mystereum’s Queen of Pentacles throne left flank, right side
FORM-GIVEN BY
Land of Mystereum’s High Priestess giving form to the station airy ness
BECOMES
Land of Mystereum’s Judgment’s horn-voice heralding regal wing.

The Hanged Man’s Posture in the Land of Mystereum

Land of Mystereum Hanged Man

Energetically, The Hanged Man is a very watery card,

cascade-rippling forth his inner emanations.

I often see this character as indicating an afloat in clarity quality,

the full and effortless support like when supported floating in water.

So, is this Hanged Man in the same posture as his support, the tree?

What can that tell us?

Appearance vs Reality ~ Sight & Vision ~ Each In Both

Sometimes I say things.

Well, I say a lot of things,

but on occasion I have been more than nudged

to keep a recording device handy.

A best friend says, “JORDAN!  YOU think what you say is normal, but GEEZ!

Listen to yourself!  Literally!  Your ideas fire like spark plugs in a car engine

ALL . . . .THE. . .FRICKIN’. . . .TIME!

I think you are so accustomed to that maybe you miss it?! Geez!”

And then, another friend suggests I change my profile picture,

that though she digs it n all, it has been up long enough

to collect some eDust.  “Freshin’ up Dood.  It’s summer!”

And, toward a gesture I make, another friend indicates

I might just be in for a make-over.   Hmmmm

ALmost broke a toe again.

(it happens in my fastforward movement style more than you care to know,

or shall I say almost REbroke a toe as thankfully all but the big ones have been)

as my cat of 18 years-n-a-season,

who continually thinks it seems that I should be training for Cirque Du Soleil footwork

slalom-serpentine weaved through my feet at light speed as I walked into the bathroom

where there is nowhere but room enough for straightforward steps. . .

moving my foot fast like a leaf blasted by the feline jet-plane fly-THROUGH

only to immediately stomp on the left quadricep-soaz-glute braking system

to avert disaster and screaching foot tire-tracks in the air. . .

simply toe-bump the toilet staving off a badass head-on collision.

He (my cat) had water to get to ya know?!, and that’s important.  lol

But, smiling, my left foot still in the air. . .

standing there like a goofball crane, Hanged Man in upright Tree Position. . .

I laughed. . .”This is SO not The Hanged Man reversed or Tree Position.  This is the Sun.

Smiling more.  Why don’t I listen to my friends telling me to listen to myself. . .

and go frickin’ LISTEN, really listen to myself.”

VoiLA, now voiCI, and I SEE. . .

as I watch-listened to the first video I ever made. . .

or, more rather the first video,

aka trapping a wild animal by recording them in their natural environment. . .

My first video was pulled off as conversational non sequitur by Carrie Paris,

well, it wasn’t a non sequitur to her. . .She had PLANS!  And DAYum does she make great ones!

Carrie, who simply, me unaware of anything up her sleeve,

heck it was brunch on Sunday. . .

Friend 101, Orientation Lesson.  They are never NOT pranking you. 😀

Carrie, smilingly-trick-gifted me to willingly and unknowingly make a video.

That was a year ago.  And, though I full-on dig the video, something larger was present.

Friend-pranking.

When you listen, really listen. . .of course after you stop laughing,

It’ll catalyze your Mo Betta Much Metta Highest Good like nothing else!

Until just now, I was always under the impression that 3-card Monte street card game was unwinnable.

Seems Carrie played a street card game with me as a plant already AT the table,

but in more than appearance I won.  In more than appearance. . . I won.

Watching this video, this mere 46 seconds of time,

I feel a deep appreciation for myself as my best teacher again.

No need for cosmetology school here, no plastic surgeons in this makeover.

Even forgetting my architectural notions of remodel or scrape or new.

This is to be something different.

New? Yes.  Fresh and natural and maybe even deceptively simple? Even more so!

8-38-31 won’t open a combo lock when the right number 8-38-32.

So, tuning my personal FM stereo. . .I certainly have enough silver in my mouth.

Listening.  Watch-Listening.   “Me, as only I can be” is the message I got from myself on video.

That’s nothing new.  Or, is it?  Is it a lesson where there is no graduation,

all life not the pause of commencement, but life lived?  Uh, lemme think. . .YES!

Smiling with lotsa hmmmm’s in a makeover moment, I am listening.

“Can be” switcharoos to “Am”, 8-31-32 tinker-tuned up to 8-38-32,

and though appearance vs reality is a common theme in literature, often called irony. . .

Have I been hiding in plain sight playing hide n seek with myself?

Not gonna cap on myself like that, I gave the armchair psychologist the day off.

Red Rover Red Rover Come on over from the personal irony side!

Makeover time? YesssssItttttTis!

I am gonna watch myself from last summer on video again,

and then TODAY listen acutely without too much force to what I say TODAY!

Listening to life rapt like when aspen tree leaves rustling sound like running water.

In closing, listening to oneself is not necessarily narcissism,

even when publicly expressing you are doing so like in this blog.

I sincerely hope it helps others find THEIR gifts.

How long does the ground erode before you jump into the sea with both feet

realizing that you ARE the sea

with everything you do as the ground?

What can you get

from a deep appreciation

of 46 seconds of YOUR life?

Cheers to discovering YOUR “46 second” gems!

Cheers,

Jordan

Today’s Card? The Land of Mystereum 5 of Wands

Today’s card is the 5 of Wands.

The 5 of Wands warrants a free reading exercise here.  Let’s work this 5 together.

Do you feel stiff competition?  Chaotic energies?

Try asking yourself the question, “What energetic component do I have that the competition is missing?”

Pull another card.  Use the card back here as an unrevealed clarifying card for this question.

Think about . . .

What can you turn over in your situation like a card back?

What can you see anew?

What do you assume, feel is normal, that is not normal to anyone else and that you can use?

Ask again, “What energetic component do I have that the competition is missing?”

Does your question and the additional card you turn over focus something, bring something to mind?

Does it reveal something you already have that you can now see more fully?

Bring something that is already there into crisp focus as a strength that YOU wield!

Look at the child in this card.  The pura vida, pure life, child.

What in the heck is he doing?  Is he crazy?

 He has put his wand behind him. Note that he keeps it, though.

He is still in the mix, but he has seen something everyone else here is missing.

Maybe the chaos is that two of them are too focused,

and two of them would rather be somewhere else so they chit-chat off to the side?  Or, are they next?

Or, are they seeing what the child is seeing, but keeping quiet?

Look at the child in this 5 of Wands card.

The pura vida child raises his hands to bring in the rainbow as his new wand, his new contribution.

No-one else has it, and bringing it into the situation is like. . . .

Bringing something that no-one else has or even sees, bringing something that the competition is missing.

Think of The Sun.

Its light is part of the rainbow.  Watch this 46 second video as you keep your second card in mind.

Then ask yourself. . .

What is the rainbow that I bring to my situation?

Till next time,

Cheers,

Jordan

Sevens: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Sevens
 
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 identity.  Also, 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 a Birth Card combo 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 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 upcoming Sevens Spread Out video on my YouTube channel — check out links below. 7’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 The Land of Mystereum the Courts are Your Royal Courts . . . so enjoy taking ownership of your Tarot Birth Cards in YOUR own way!
So, let’s get started with the Sevens Land of Mystereum-style, shall we?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

THE TOWER ~ THE CHARIOT
XVI ~ VII  ::  16 ~ 7
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 7, and thus correspond with the Sevens in general, and the (upcoming) Sevens Spread Out video on my YouTube Channel
.
7’s Birth Card Prelude: With The Tower ~ The Chariot as your Birth Cards you may often experience vast abilities to shift focus, redirect scale, and re-orchestrate your momentum in world-altering ways right on the fly wise in time in real time. There can also be a tendency to not look before you leap.
            Let know how you see how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 characters as facets of one personality?
The Tower ~ in world-altering ways; to re-orchestrate, destruction for renewal, the sun comes out after the storm, and the sun always still shines behind dark clouds. Is the silver lining of things simply the indelible Sun of you creeping through regardless of the times or the inner or outer weather?
The Chariot ~ you may often experience vast abilities (to re-orchestrate) your momentum on the fly wise in time to effectively continue making progress.

~ Notice the cross-over overlappage and mixed order in the single Prelude statement that can be gifted by the 2 cards. Integration in these kinds of Prelude statements may very well indicate that things are rarely simply put in line like dominoes disconnected yet set to fall. With integration of concepts, imaginatively, things are incorporated, incorporated like a well-made 3-day rue is folded into and simmered into a gumbo. Certainly not two things once served up. They mix and blend and contribute inter-locking strengths. Is something new made by teaming things up this way? What is your 3-day rue?

~ Is The Tower the pond that remembers its turning over only in its fertility?

~ Is The Chariot as a single sunflower in a vast field of sunflowers? An experiential acceleration in an intense cascade of expansion on the move, meshing and syncing in a seamless segue of motions at speed? Like a chariot that engages from the side to sync up and match and mesh momentums?  Hmmm, a sunflower. Brown ground. Green stalks (wanna say yellow clovers and blue diamonds n Lucky charms). Golden petals. Lush, brown center . . . gold petals connecting to the sun across the sky . . .

You see, in The Land of Mystereum cards are exalted, and they exalt themselves without arrogance and with total confidence AS themselves. They are comfortable with what they are as they further expand and develop themselves. Always complete, never finished, their verbs cycle and shift forward as they speak and live in motion. The Land of Mystereum is not a place to experience “OH, not THAT card!” The Land of Mystereum is a place to live with the cards, to move through their experience to inform your own. And, on THOSE cards?  The cards you don’t want to see? Check out, I Don’t Believe in Bad CardsAll I can say is check out Tarot in the Land of Mystereum, and maybe you can do this quality justice yourself in a reading, on a blog. Try it and see.  Take a look.

So, back to the order of this blog, your Tower ~ Chariot Birth Cards.

The Tower card can represent your Outer Expression.  This is how most people might ‘see’ you in the world.  The Tower card is known for its ability to alter your world across the board in powerfully specific and system-wide ways.  With the Tower card representing your Outer Expression experience the powerfully pervasive ways you fully reconstruct your world in times of marked change.   Know that your strength dwells in abilities to shift strongly.  Keep sight of the ways you reconstruct things, rebuild things, integrate and iterate and reiterate things in bright new ways that create full-boat renewal.  Odds are, with The Tower as your Outer Expression you may be perceived as the one who can be looked to regardless of the situation.  You can build with that single quality.  It is both mortar and stone in regards to personality.

The Chariot can represent your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that maybe only your closest family and friends ‘see’.  The Chariot as your Inner Expression may symbolize that you make connections quickly as you enthusiastically sync up and mesh with your focus directly at speed, in motion, in real-time.  Your modes to engage your focus are most probably agile and forward thinking.  Too few words here for The Chariot?  With The Chariot the meaning occurs in the act.  Your whole life up to a Chariot moment may have prepared you for it.  YAH!  Oh, that was to the horses, not you.  ;-D

Putting them back together again: You may often experience vast abilities to re-orchestrate your momentum in world-altering ways.  Note the cards not mentioned in this second Prelude. They are not really missing, though.  Are they simply and vitally present like the color of your eyes?

I hope you have enjoyed this The Tower ~ The Chariot Birth Card Identity Blog, and find it useful in your process as you further explore and enhance and express your own, personal Tarot voice!  Tarot in the Land of Mystereum is all about the life-long process of emancipating your Tarot voice in YOUR way.  Teachers are rockin’, gurus not so much.  There may be no I or U in team LOL, but there certainly is U in gurU.  With your fuel-injected and aspirated Tower ~ Chariot inner divinity fueling your way, rather than being created in the image of . . . you may well know how much we each HAVE the face of . . .

If this article freed you up to be more you in ways only you can be like The Sun, I am thankful.  ‘Till next time.

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!

So, let’s get started with the Sixes Land of Mystereum-style, shall we?
THE DEVIL ~ THE LOVERS
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?

010.1 CtC copy

~ 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.
