Your Tarot Birth Cards for Oct 23rd, 2020

Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace transformation in a very matter of fact manner. A crucial component of their reality is that they engage with inner contents and the unconscious in factual ways as easily as they interact with people at a get-together. Psychic and unconscious contents are simply more facts to go with what is out here. Even if these are not your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were. See what new perspectives you can discover.

With The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician what aspects of your life that are uniquely identifiable as yours can you cycle through to find something juicy to further embrace your alchemy of Self with…? Check out the next 46 (45) seconds of a video for some… hmmm, no spoilers… What chords are struck that resonate with you from this 46sec video?

There is nothing in the caterpillar that tells you it‘s going to be a butterfly.

This Week

It’s a #1 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment Ace of Pentacles

0 min 52 (51) sec

and some Friday fun for you… and thanks Carrie Paris! This may be the BEST use of an Espresso Maker part ever…

1 min 06 sec

So again I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times, how do you establish and/or embrace your established inner light to enhance and align with and in your natural transformation(s) while you stick to the point? Is transformation one of the key drivers in the heartbeat of beauty?

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

My Friend Fred

I say Fred’s chaos = Nature itself, and one’s natural and immutable Nature of Self.

What messages of unique breathing room do The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician have for you today with the Moon in the Air sign of Aquarius? How can you aspirate an idea with that to step up its effectiveness.

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do you express a fluid fluency with transformational energies in real time on the fly? Record yourself speaking about The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician. Close your eyes and play yourself back afterwards. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear IN your voice even more than what words you say or sounds you make. What do you hear. How does that feel? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you about where you are right at this very moment in the perpetual present?

What about the flow of what you hear in your voice? Dance like you’re the Sun itself, click record, and experience the exquisite magic in your orbits of your community within and about. If you’re more visual, doodle like no one is watching. Maybe even also you if you doodle with your eyes closed. No matter if the pencil/pen/brush/marker/charcoal,stick slides off the paper. Heck, if it does, maybe you just went off trail inside into some new Nature territory where good stuff tends to make their homes.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Outside and look in the window… look into the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 0min 46sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What magic orbits around me? How and when am I most magnetic with things that resonate with me? How do you allow this inform your current perspective? What will you do about it? Some things are wheels, some things are cogs. I do not demean cogs as less than. A cog functions under intense temperatures and pressures all the while as it continually keeps engaged to gear in without a slip. And, if it does slip, it can often be re-tooled to be put back in place. And, maybe it could also mean it would like a rest more periodically than its getting to no overheat.

The Tortoise & The Hare

The Tortoise and the Hare. Has the Hare ever won? Nope. The Hare just stacks manicy on top of anxiety manicy one after the other like a Dagwood sandwich with his false sense of urgency as he bounces all over like a confused Pachinko ball.

The Tortoise? He experiences every step, and every wonderful sensation between each step. I gather he might even stop at some strange and thick white line painted across his road while crowds cheer all around and he, How cool. Will you just look at all those divets in the asphalt highlighted by this cool white band across the road? With a wry smil he might even swing his head around to the Hare that bounces around everywhere with, HEY HARE! What IS this beautiful thing? Ha! Just kidding as he puts his foot down on that cool, white line. WINNER!

And, the Tortoises smiles, steeps in the moment, and finds some cool cats to experience stuff with. The Tortoise might not ever care about winning, and always does. The Hare? Most likely ONLY cares about winning, and consequently never does. Experience wins out here, huh? Is the Tortoise an experience Magician?

Recently

I’m full-on pleased that my article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine Equinox Issue. I’m stoked with the honor and the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin, and Charlotte and the Tarosophy Team! Note that the Tarosophist International Magazine is a members-only magazine with public print to resume soon.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

Digital Daggers ~ In Flames

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Digital Daggers is one of my new favorite bands along with The Civil Wars. Digital Daggers has a wicked cool way of approaching the Self head on, wonderfully handling psychological and relationship topics with heartfelt grace and a no holds barred intensity.

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 23rd

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own. All similar, each unique. My image is splashing in the water. Just splash and splash and let the splash be… unless you’re in Oz or South Africa. Then, do that in a pool. I wouldn’t want you to hear dangerous cello music in the ocean. Du Nuh…

I suggest take 2 sites you are familiar with and revisit their current post(s). Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble as diamonds take some time and intense pressure to form. The stars and planets are menacing only if you let them be. Mercury Rx? (Retrograde). Simply downshift and re-calibrate to attune yourself and adjust your pace and how you rev and drive the directions you do,

Planets, like Tarot cards, are magical allies when you OWN the magnetism of how their movement relationships influence things. Good? Bad? Nah. Workability. I find there’s always workability when you adjust your perspective to align or intentionally misalign. I don;lt go with the flow as only dead fish go with the flow. I prefer fluid fluency and to swim upstream. Besides just being a great workout, stuff tends to come TO you then.

Where Will Your SI Take You This Week?

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. ~ Riding the cusp between imagination and reality. Her Orphaned Oracle is BORN and now available! Check out the Game Crafter link on her site to purchase! She also has Waxtober this month and rockin’ ramblings and Rantras and musings with no pulled punches. There are lots of exquisite surprises along the way. THIS is a site to watch.

Dr. Jean Raffa ~ Think Psychologically. Live Spiritually. A former television producer and college professor, Dr. Raffa changed directions in midlife to discover and write about her passions. Informed by over 30 years of psychological and spiritual study, her books and teachings guide others to growth and self-empowerment. Red Feather Mind Body Spirit is an imprint of Schiffer Publications who is my publisher. Love the synchronicity that I found her work in the Carl Jung Depth Psychology Reading Group rather than from my publisher. Pretty cool. Great to discover Jean’s work. Also, check out her work at Golden Seeds of Wisdom. I am looking forward to Dr. Raffa’s presentation Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST where she will introduce her new book, The Soul’s Twinswhich will be published on November 17, 2020.  Pre-orders are now being accepted by Amazon.com.

Dive in to the over 1,200 videos he has produced for a healthy dose of rockin’ness. Well worth the time spent, like the length of a great movie. I always come away with something new, and also usually a further fleshed out perspective. Also, Skip, along with Coeleen Kiebert and Tim Holmes are running the Pre-Election Collective Unconscious & Participation Mystique Project which I am participating in. Take a look.

Coeleen Kiebert ~ Navigating the Unmanifest. My art is the expression of a mysterious, quiet story that has within it a line of truth deeper than I am able to see any other way.  Often, I wonder how others know what’s going on inside of themselves.  How do they know what’s really happening?   How do they cope with the deeper meanings of life without an art form to guide them?  Doing art is the way I search for this inner truth.  The images that appear in the clay lead me to an understanding that is beyond that which I can gain from common reflection.  It is a communication with myself and the language is my art. (c) Coeleen Kiebert. All rights reserved.

Tim Holmes ~ Tim Holmes Studio. A passionate artist with vision and an actionable mission consistently doing something with it for the good of the Self and the world. Hearing His Own Voice: A Life of Sculptor Tim Holmes. By Brian D’Ambrosio. Also, explore Tim’s Jung And Alive Meaning Finder.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog. Please share his recent Black in AI 2020 Call for Papers post to magnetize others who might not have otherwise been aware of the opportunity to advance the AI (Artificial Intelligence) community.

Author Melissa Crismon ~ Oceans of Love. Melissa is the author of the MerSea series about a conservationist mermaid. Painting in her mom’s studio, studying modern dance, and playing the pedal harp informed her childhood. A bachelor’s degree in visual and performing arts made sense. From angelic harpist to romance author, Melissa began writing as a theatre reviewer for local and online media.Her Golden-State-of-the-Art Blog started out as a California arts blog that covered a lot of theatre, but rolls with the punches and has expanded to the vegan lifestyle.

J. Gary Sparks ~ Jungian Analyst. Diplomate, C.G. Jung Institute, Zürich. Through his website he makes resources available for learning and teaching Jungian psychology at all levels. the link is to his wonderful welcome page, and you’ll find his Home Page link at the bottom of the Welcome page.

Martha Ann Kennedy’s Blog ~ I’m A Writer, Yes, I Am! Her recent post Through the Looking Glass from The Global Exclaimer is powerful and full-on apt about this racism disease going around more powerfully in this current time where the Civil War is like the EverReady Bunny just going and going and going — like it seethed under the surface for over a century, the internal war that never ended. About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley. All my life, I’ve been a writer. Sometimes, I’m also a painter, but I am always a hiker.

Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work last week. He liked a comment I made on another’s blog, don’t remember which as I clicked right through to his site.

It starts with a wicked cool image, and keeps going from there.

Janet Rudolph ~ Feminism and Religion. Thoughtful. Poignant. Meaningful. Janet plays the depths with her tune. Both-And is embraced, and though either/or is not dismissed, it is seemingly most often precluded by her forthright and engaged gesture. Janet posts from a deep well.

I respect when people swim in their own crucible to discern and come to a more resonant relationship with themselves.

I for one am looking forward to see where she takes her adventure.

Scott Spillman ~ The Point Magazine. New article, Charismatic Models.(My words follow, these are not Scott’s or the Magazine’s) I loathe politics as the great irony of our time, maybe any time when people who are not personally sovereign can be ruled simply by the sniff of a suggestion. This, is not that.

Joy Vernon ~ Completely Joyous. Tarot & Reiki. Bookmarked for this week as there’s an ICANN issue pending. I’ve been there. I hate it when that periodic email required to confirm your URL ownership with ICANN for your website gets buried and lost. I’ll most likely have an operable link here next week if not before.

Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters.

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

Here is Your October 16th, 2020 SI with the Moon Direct in Libra since yesterday, 10/15, at 1:54a. The Moon will continue its travel through Libra into this evening to enter its next Void of Course Astro Sign Lunar Synapse today, 10/16, at 6:11p. It will emerge Direct in Scorpio at 1:05a 10/17, and continue Direct through the weekend until diving into its next Void Of Course Psychic Astro Sign Synapse on 10/18 at 5:43p. 10/19 at 12:43a it will emerge Direct in Sagittarius.*

* Note: All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the energetic Libra opportunity to engage in things that speak to beauty in your Inner Home, things you are passionate about That can cascade and expand out to provide those special flourished in your home. What’s your favorite space where you feel a sense of place in your home? Fetch wood and carry water so to speak for that place. How can you amplify it in powerfully simple ways?

Nevermind mastery. Mastery leads to further discovery. Libra can help you sidestep form and dial more in to the feel. Then, you’ll be set and rested and powerfully nestled in for the Scorpionic weekend show. Did I mention the New Moon. Nope. Can’t see it? Exactly. Feel it. Feeling is a mantra that aligns with the weekend this week. And, fill up on that high octane, Scorpionic depths fuel so you can step on the gas back into solid action with fluid fluency when the Moon goes direct in Sag.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Oct 16th, 2020

Hanged Man ~ Empress

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace transformation in a very matter of fact manner. A crucial component of their reality is that they engage with inner contents and the unconscious in factual ways as easily as they interact with people at a get-together. Psychic and unconscious contents are simply more facts to go with what is out here. Even if these are not your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were. See what new perspectives you can discover.

With The Hanged Man ~ Empress, Chariot style, what intensely natural, internal, transformative energies that oppose one another In their alchemy will you harmonize to harness for your Higher Good today and this weekend?

There is nothing in the caterpillar that tells you it‘s going to be a butterfly.

This Week

It’s a #3 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 3 of Pentacles

0 min 59 sec

and

2 min 17 sec

I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times, how do you establish and/or embrace your established inner light to enhance and align with and in your natural transformation(s)? Is transformation one of the heartbeats of beauty?

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

My Friend Fred

I say Fred’s chaos = Nature itself, and one’s natural and immutable Nature of Self.

What messages do The Hanged Man ~ Empress gift you?

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do you express a fluid fluency with transformational energies in real time on the fly? Record yourself speaking about The Hanged Man ~ Empress. Close your eyes and play yourself back Afterwards. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear even more than what you said. What do you hear. How do you feel to yourself? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you? What about the flow? Dance like you’re birthing a star, click record, and speak fluently like no one’s listening. Share what happens if you like. If you’re more visual, doodle like no one is watching.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Outside and look in the window… look into the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 0min 59’sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What transformations do I craft from the intense pressures in my life? How do you allow this inform your perspective? What will you do about it? Cogs are not less than. A cog functions under intense temperatures and pressures all the while engaging to gear in without slip. And, if it slips, it can often be re-tooled to be put back in place.

Recently

I’m full-on pleased that my article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine Equinox Issue. I’m stoked with the honor and the quality of their presentation. Thank you Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin Charlotte and the Tarosophy Team! Note that the Tarosophist International Magazine is a members-only magazine with public print to resume soon.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

SVRCINA ~ Battlefield

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 16th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own. All similar, each unique. My image is splashing in the water. Just splash and splash and let the splash be… unless you’re in Oz or South Africa. Then, do that in a pool. I wouldn’t want you to hear dangerous cello music in the ocean. Du Nuh…

I suggest take 2 sites you are familiar with and revisit their current post(s). Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble Diamonds take some time it seems. The stars and planets are menacing only if you let them be. They are magical allies if you OWN them, especially when they are intense. How can you partner with your intensity to surf your own celestial grooves of transformation this week?. I suggest to not take shit from the stars this week. It’s YOUR world. Turn around and see where they are coming from. Your perspective might shift to your benefit as they partner with you, even if at odds. There’s still a relationship in that scenario as well. Breathe out and take out your broom to clean sweep anxiety out! Fear is like Inner Iolite, the Nordic Compass. Use it as awareness as your adaptability drives transformation. And, please do take care not to let anxiety hijack your Fear Awareness Radar Tool from you and jack it into being afraid. SHIELDS UP for the rest of the month! October 2020 Astro is quite a ride. Make it so! And, here’s a 3rd Astro link I value. Susan Miller, Rob Brezsny, and Verdarluz are three Astro voices I work with to complement mine as I Chart course.

About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley.

I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

SI: 10/9 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 10/9 Serendipity Itinerary

Your October 9th, 2020 SI, with the Moon Direct in Cancer since 11:45A 10/8. The Moon will continue its travel through Cancer to enter its next Void of Course Astro Sign Lunar Synapse Saturday 10/10 at 12:04p and emerge Direct in Leo at 8:24p 10/10. It will continue Direct through the weekend until diving into its next Void Of Course Psychic Astro Sign Synapse on 10/12 at 10:29a, to emerge Direct again on 10/13 at 12:56a in Virgo. All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the energetic Aries opportunity to engage in things that amplify your energies, things you are passionate about. I would suggest that the meditation is to embrace the heft balance to stay in your lane so to speak so your higher octave Aries energies emanate rather obliterate. Out of your lane might be like bumper cars or Pachinko balls bouncing around all over. In your lane and breathing deeply may stoke your Inner fire with the good stuff of You.

Nevermind mastery. Mastery leads to further discovery, and Aries can sharpen your points through expert skill in play. It’s advised to keep an extra sheath around, though. I suggest to light a candle that you do not blow out in a fire-safe place.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

Your Tarot Birth Cards for Oct 9th, 2020

Temperance ~ Hierophant

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace big changes as you engage with your established identity. Even if these are not Your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were and see what new perspectives you discover, and what intense energies that oppose one another you harness for your Higher Good.

How can you World-Altar your life with your down-to-earth spirit that magically mixes with balance? I suggest to not get lost in that. There’s always a way. I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski put it better at a higher octave when his Chariot spoke and said, I made a diamond out of my misfortune. Taken that way, the intense heat and pressures of the world can be World-Altaring instead to…. What diamond do you make with the pressures of your life?

This Week

It’s a #5 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 5 of Pentacles.

1 min 06 sec

and

I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski’s Chariot said, I made a diamond from my misfortune. With Mindfulness in troubled times how do you embrace your established inner light to activate effective actions? How can you exhale The Nemesis of Beauty Asphyxiator of anxiety so it doesn’t smoke out your inner fire?

I refer to the 5 of Pentacles as the Inspect Your Expectations card. Rather than pity or shame or guilt or loss, how can you look past that to the higher octave of your warm and established inner light, Your Inner Hearth? How can you look past the blind spots and illusions and mirages of what you expect to see, and see and experience what is really there? Justice and The King of Swords are a great pair of allies to explore that question With the 5 of Pentacles.

What messages do Justice (VIII or XI depending on how you roll) and The King of Swords Gift to you for your 5 of Pentacles?

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do YOU harness intense energies in real time? Record yourself speaking about The Chariot and/or Temperance and/or The Hierophant and/or the 5 of Pentacles. Close your eyes and play yourself back. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear even more than what you said. What do you hear, and how does it come across to you? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you? What about the flow? Dance like no one’s watching, click record, and speak like no one’s listening. Share what happens if you like.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Inside and look out the window… look out the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 1min 06sec, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What do I craft from the pressures in my life? How do you allow this inform your perspective? What will you do about it?

Recently

This Week intense energies that I harnessed were published yesterday.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

A Blast From The Past: 2014

So, here’s what you car might look like the next morning in the winter from your energy after a WONDERFUL marathon 4-hour Reading the day before and a 30-minute drive home. Love the Baby Dragon Wings border and living flows across the Moon Roof.

SVRCINA ~ Battlefield

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for October 9th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

There are excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe, like the world, is all over the place, to each their own. All similar, each unique. My image is splashing in the water. Just splash and splash and let the splash be… unless you’re in Oz or South Africa. Then, do that in a pool. I wouldn’t;t want you to hear dangerous cello music in the ocean. Du Nuh…

I suggest take 2 you are familiar with and revisit their current posts. Then, I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week. Prepare this month to not waste trouble. The stars and planets are menacing if you let them be, and magical allies if you OWN them. I suggest to not take shit this week from the stars. Turn around and see where they are coming from. Your perspective might shift to your benefit. Breathe out and take out your broom to clean sweep anxiety out! Fear is like Inner Iolite, the Nordic Compass. Use it as awareness, and please do take care not to let anxiety hijack it from you to jack it into being afraid. SHIELDS UP for the rest of the month! Make it so!

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

SI: 10/2 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 10/2 Serendipity Itinerary

Your October 2nd, 2020 SI, with the Harvest Full Moon in Aries since 10:47p 9/30, officially Full yesterday at 5:05p. The Moon will continue its travel through Aries to enter its next Void of Course Astro Sign Lunar Synapse Saturday 10/3 at 1:47a and emerge Direct in Taurus at 11:12a 10/3. All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the energetic Aries opportunity to engage in things that amplify your energies, things you are passionate about. I would suggest that the meditation is to embrace the heft balance to stay in your lane so to speak so your higher octave Aries energies emanate rather obliterate. Out of your lane might be like bumper cars or Pachinko balls bouncing around all over. In your lane and breathing deeply may stoke your Inner fire with the good stuff of You.

Nevermind mastery. Mastery leads to further discovery, and Aries can sharpen your points through expert skill in play. It’s advised to keep an extra sheath around, though. I suggest to light a candle that you do not blow out in a fire-safe place.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

Your Tarot Birth Cards for 10/2/2020

Tower ~ Chariot

Excellent Birth Card Pair to continually embrace big changes as you engage with your established identity. Even if these are not Your Tarot Birth Cards, it can be a great exercise to explore them as if they were and see what new perspectives you discover, and what intense energies that oppose one another you harness for your Higher Good.

Hey, The Tower can certainly be change at a world-altering level. I suggest to not get lost in that. There’s always a way. I say, Don’t waste trouble. Jodorowski put it when his Chariot spoke as, I made a diamond out of my misfortune. Taken that way, the intense heat and pressures of the world can be World-Altaring instead.

What are Your Tarot Birth Cards?

This Week

It’s a #7 day today, so enjoy the:

Mystereum Tarot Moment 7 of Pentacles.

If your pond turns over, it does so to refresh the system. Harness the energies of the experience while they are active. And, respect that dust may need to clear first which advises stillness in Mindfulness to refresh you.

I refer to the 7 of Pentacles as The Soul Gardener Card, an Inner Tree of Life. Wald Amberstone refers to the 7 of Pentacles as The Depth of Above — note the back foot in the RWS deck out over the clouds not on the ground. Hence, a Depth of Above, a Soul Gardener of You.

0 min 58 sec

and

I have plans to produce videos for the other suits, plus individual number card groupings, the Courts, and of course the Majors.

Tarot Voice Prompt Exercise

How do YOU harness intense energies in real time? Record yourself speaking about The Chariot and/or The Tower and/or the 7 of Pentacles. Close your eyes and play yourself back. Listen deeply to your voice and what you hear even more than what you said. What do you hear, and how does it come across to you? Do you hear anything new? What do the highs and lows of your voice tell you? What about the flow? Dance like no one’s watching, click record, and speak like no one’s listening. Share what happens if you like.

Writing Prompt Exercise

Look out the window. Go Inside and look out the window… look out the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 0min 58sec seconds, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder again doing the above, or Morse Code, however you roll. Ask yourself: What intensity is harnessed through the Soul of my eyes? Close your 2 eyes to open the 3rd. How do you allow this inform your perspective?

Carrie Paris is the Video Producer on my Mystereum Tarot Moments series from 2012-2013. Check out her beautiful site!

This Week

My article The Kintsukuroi of Self was published in Issue 35 of The Tarot Association’s Tarosophist International Magazine.* I’m stoked with the honor, and beyond pleased with the quality of their presentation.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they originated from you to you. I played with Silence this week, so the music is the same as last week’s. Listen or hop right over it with Silence and dig into the intensities in everyone’s blogs this week.

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Ruelle ~ Hold Your Breath

Au/Ra ~ Dance in the Dark

Patti Smith ~ Horses

There Are 2 Musical Pairs for You + Here’s the Bonus Blast From the Past. So Cool that this resurfaced.

Resurfaced from the cardboard box treasure chest they slept through their long-form perennial slumber…

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

Most everyone below has excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe felt quieter Again this week, though longer looking, and maybe intensities were simply wonderful in balance. Expansive even in simple expressions. I suggest take 2 you are familiar with and revisit. Then I-Ching ’em and run your own Serendipity Itinerary to 2 that are new to you. Another great week.

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

Mystereum Review & New News x 2!

And Tarot in the Land of Mystereum

Mysteureum Delirium! review from Mary Nale + New News!

Here’s the New News!

First off, before I get to Mary Nale’s wonderful review below…
I am honored. What an accolade! I cherish the the depths of personal, process experience and Soul Gardening that brought Mystereum into being. I feel chords plucked on the harp of my heart-strings. They resonate for my creation’s journey as it has made its way so wonderfully out there in the world after it graduated from me. Kudos Mystereum! Thank you Marcus & Tali!

&

Jordan’s Journeys now has A new home at JordanHoggard.com! This is the flagship post out of the gate! I have a New Moon Blessing gift for you coming very soon.

Ok, on to a vibrant and verdant review

There are more reviews, and I’ll post them in the upcoming weeks. I have 5 more that just floor me every time I revisit them. They will be in no particular order, as I resonate with them all, each differently. Like Mystereum says, All similar, each unique. And, The Sun extends, I’m you, as only you can beHave fun with that one in your own ways as only you do. How were you particularly born to see?

Explore, enhance, reinforce, and strengthen the clarity of your own vision with Tarot in the Land of Mystereum:

Now, to the Review

 

Okay, let me first say THANK YOU to Schiffer Books for sending me Tarot in the Land of Mystereum by Jordan Hoggard.
Book Details
ISBN:  9780764336010
Size:  11 1/2 ” x 6″ x 1 1/2″
Illustrations:   78 color art cards + 192 page companion book

The box that this comes in is sturdy and has a magnetic lid.  The book and the deck nestle in here very nicely.  The colors are vibrant and the card backs are like looking out a picture window.  (Well, that’s what I see anyway, you may see something totally different.)
The first thing I noticed is that these are not standard size cards, they are larger -no squinting to see what’s going on in the image.  I’ve come to like larger cards so, this is just fine by me!
Before releasing the cards I took out the companion book and started reading…within seconds, I was smiling and hearing the words on the page come to life in Jordan’s voice!  (This deck is all about your imagination after all…)
This book is so different from what you expect to see in a companion book!  It’s truly entertaining and packed full of information.  This is what I would call a “Story Book”.  Okay, if you need a more grown up term for this, it’s a Novel with well developed characters.
It was hard for me to put the book down once I started reading, the story moves you right along through every single card in the deck!  The “Imagination Tools” will serve you well and open your mind to new possibilities.  The key words are given under the image of each card in the book, you will notice right away that these are very different than what you’re used to seeing…they have more depth and come from a totally different perspective than what you find in other books and decks.  Many authors say they have a different approach to Tarot but, Jordan really does — and here’s the book to prove it!  I can’t imagine how much time went into writing this book, it’s something every tarot reader should add to their collection.
Now, let’s talk about the cards!  I mentioned they are larger than a standard deck but, not so large that you can’t handle them.  The cards are sturdy and will last you a very long time.
I shuffled and shuffled…The Queen of Swords!  I love what Jordan has done with this card-the three swords are forming a triangle around this Queen.  She’s very focused.  I wouldn’t say she looks annoyed, just very intense.  I like that!  No-nonsense!  The Queen of Swords is one of my favorite images in this deck.  I think this card shows how The Queen’s attitudes and intentions can sometimes be misunderstood.  She isn’t mean, she just doesn’t believe in beating around the bush — direct is the way to go with this lady!
Look at this High Priestess. Is there anything that she doesn’t know?
These two cards represent what this deck will mean to me… how it will treat me and what I can expect.  I think it’s saying that it will tell me anything I want to know and it will tell me in a manner that’s direct and to the point.  This makes me smile ’cause I like things on the direct side!  I look forward to working with these images and re-reading the book. I totally “get” how this is an Imagination Primer!  When you look through the cards, there seems to be just a whisper of something… like when something is on the tip of your tongue…then your mind opens up and the information starts coming.  If a blue print could come to life, it would look like this deck… that’s what I think!
Each character tells his or her story in the book and the deck provides the visual aid to get your head in gear… I just don’t know how else to explain this so, I sure hope this makes sense!
I recommend to buy this deck, and it’s available at :

4 of Pents Congrats to Mystereum!

I woke up in the middle of the night and smiled as I remembered an honor that is dear and magnetic and powerful to me. It was like an awake-dream, a theosophic vision launched straight out of my dreams. I sat up kelping in slow movements very liminal like I was un-knocked out into awareness, and probably had quite a goofy looking smile like a cat with its tongue just stuck there stuck out a bit. There was a blurry image coming forward and into focus as I came to. It was the rockin’ Tarot package Schiffer Publications published in 2011. That’s certainly an honor, though that wasn’t the magnetic memory that pulled me up out of dream orbits.

My book and deck package Tarot in the Land of Mystereum was named 39th out of the Top 50 Most Essential Tarot Decks By the Tarosophy Tarot Association a good while back! I have to say, being stirred out of sleep by a magnetic memory like that is ridiculously cool! What a great talisman for the night, the day, and moving forward! Lyra, my German Shepherd, may want to go out now for a middle of the night walk, and I’m pretty dang sure I’ll be meeting the pillow again soon after, though I wanted to share this magical moment while it was fresh, to keep its movement going out into the night, the world, and into and throughout the day.

Tarot Inspired Questions for Your Jan 19th to Jan 25th Week

Welcome to Weekly Tarot Inspired Questions

… there is a sanctuary in every good question.  Enhance building your questions.

Click the Card Back below this Week’s Featured Video.

Rivetingly rockin’ so I featured it again, again!

 The Annual Review of Tarot by Tarosophy Tarot Associations (Worldwide) at www.tarotassociation.net.

I am honored to be a part of Tarosophy Tarot Association’s wonderful video!… and, the music just builds the video to Inspiring!

Welcome to…

Weekly Tarot Inspired Questions

Enjoy this week’s exercises of questions as your blueprints of sanctuaries to engage life more fully.

Astro Suggestion Tip

If you know your Moon and Rising Signs (Ascendant / ASC), read those Tarot Inspired Questions, too.  I find them to be most helpful in composing a more applicable Tarot card and Astro combo that more resonantly works with your overall personality.  And, if you’re like me and have your Moon conjunct your ASC in the same sign, do them twice or simply give them double umph to engage them more potently.

Tarot Inspired Questions 

for

Your Jan 19th to Jan 25th 2014 Week

First off, ask yourself these four questions I have modified that were originally penned for buildings by Christian Norberg Schulz:

  • How do I stand on the ground?
  • How do I reach for the sky?
  • How do I extend to the sides?
  • How do I open and close?

With the answers or feelings or experiences you received when posing those 4 questions to yourself, I’ve cooked up for a question scenario for you to play around with and dance into the above four questions for each card. See how your weekly card can inform each of the 4 questions.  Have fun, and see where the sanctuaries built by these questions can take you this week!

Question asking tips:

~ “What” kinds of questions are often about substance, tangible gigs, the nature of what you want to manifest.
~ “Why” kinds of questions often work with exploring motivations, intents, will, and planning.
~ “How” kinds of questions are often about discerning how to take action, create workability, establish means & methods to implement priorities.

I am honored to be a part of Tarosophy Tarot Association’s wonderful video!… and, the music just builds to Inspiring!

Welcome to…

Weekly Tarot Inspired Questions

Enjoy this week’s exercises of questions to build sanctuaries for you to engage your life more fully.

Astro Suggestion

If you know your Moon and Rising Signs (Ascendant / ASC), read those Tarot Inspired Questions, too.  I find them to be most helpful in composing a more applicable Tarot card and Astro combo that more resonantly works with your overall personality.  And, if you’re like me and have your Moon conjunct your ASC in the same sign, do them twice or simply give them double umph to engage them more potently.

Tarot Inspired Questions 

for

Your Jan 12th to Jan 18th 2014 Week

First off, ask yourself these four questions I have modified that were originally penned for buildings by Christian Norberg Schulz:

  • How do I stand on the ground?
  • How do I reach for the sky?
  • How do I extend to the sides?
  • How do I open and close?

With the answers or feelings or experiences you received when posing those 4 questions to yourself, I’ve cooked up for a question scenario for you to play around with and dance into the above four questions for each card. See how your weekly card can inform each of the 4 questions.  Have fun, and see where the sanctuaries built by these questions can take you this week!

Question asking tips:

~ “What” kinds of questions are often about substance, tangible gigs, the nature of what you want to manifest.
~ “Why” kinds of questions often work with exploring motivations, intents, will, and planning.
~ “How” kinds of questions are often about discerning how to take action, create workability, establish means & methods to implement priorities.

Capricorn: Dec 22 to Jan 19 ~ 5 of Pentacles

Notice the medulla oblongata moving to integrate from the unconscious, established inner light, expectation, emotional pressure filled, tears becoming sacred adornments

Capricorn,

  • What established inner light do you have that is so big and so there you may miss it at times? …like an inner sun you are so fully accustomed to that you might “overlook” it.. like saying “daytime” which implies the sun though doesn’t necessarily make you think about the sun.  What established inner light do you have that is so big and so there you may miss it at times?
  • Why do some expectations cause you to lose sight of your established inner light?  An active remedy to this may be Christiana C. Gaudet‘s sanctuary of a statement: “Don’t let your emotions dictate how you feel.”  Why do some expectations cause you to lose sight of your established inner light?
  • How do you respond best from the place of your established inner light?

Aquarius: Jan 20 to Feb 18 ~ 7 of Swords
