Gratitude Received! I Am Honored. Two Legendary Accolades!

2 Tarot in the Land of Mystereum Cards Are Featured in Taschen’s

The Library of Esoterica!

By Jessica Hundley

LIbrary of Esoterica by Jessica Hundley. Taschen Books, 2020

Trace the hidden history of Tarot in the first volume from TASCHEN’s Library of Esoterica, a series documenting the creative ways we strive to connect to the divine. Artfully arranged according to the sequencing of the Major and Minor Arcana, this visual compendium gathers more than 500 cards and works of original art from around the world in the ultimate exploration of a centuries-old art form.

Today I Received Word

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

I Am Proud & Resonant

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

A Fun Bit of Mystereum History

In 2009

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

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

That Deal

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

In February of 2001

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

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

2005 to 2008 to 2011 to 2020!

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

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

I’ve Loved Taschen Books

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

2

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

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

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

Note the solidity of your movements now, post-completion. How does that enhance your connections, your sense of connection?

Thanks much for visiting!

What wonderful solid completions have you accomplished of late? Have you built a solid sense of self with healthy boundaries in one area or another that further enhances, reinforces, and supports your well-being?

7 of Pentacles Mystereum Tarot Moment

Your 7 of Pentacles Mystereum Tarot Moment!

I don’t believe in chaos, as Nature does not know chaos. I asked it. It grimaced with a chuckle. I gather it, consequently, doesn’t have order, either. It wouldn’t answer my question on that, though, the wind just gusted me to embrace that for myself. So, I feel Nature just is, it is just full-on is full-on itself in every way at every moment. That, I dig a lot. Not infinitely, just a lot. Nature’s a good role model in ways. At least I feel so, mostly. Not all, though certainly mostly. WIth the 7 of Pentacles I feel to describe it as Depths Beyond.

Wald Amberstone of The Tarot School in NYC (Ruth Ann & Wald Amberstone) penned Depth(s) of Above for This card which I firmly buy and that’s firmly (c) Wald Amberstone, especially with the mental gymnastic pun-flip of putting above ABOVE depth. I full-on resonate with that, and he gets full credit for that, though I call the 7 of Pents The Soul Gardener. The Soul Gardener with Depths from Beyond [(c) me] fertilized right into the earth as they amend their soil as they tend their bounty. I simply prefer Depth of Beyond,

Nature has weather, though I don’t personify the weather. The wind can be static-y and raise the hairs on the back of your neck and get you a bit stirred up, though the stirrer isn’t stirred up. It’s most likely just dry and blustery outside. Not such an admirable quality in people, though with wind, not much to judge or discern. Heck, if it’s raining, bring an umbrella. If sunny, bring a friend. Or, if you’re more like me, stand in the rain happy and hold your head and hands HIGH and feel it, and if with a friend, so much the better. I see people running in the rain, and it always perplexes me. I walk slower in the rain. I stop. I hold out or hold up my hands and look up into it. Ablution? Sometimes. I’m already soaked, so what’s the worry? It’s not like I can get MORE soaked. Plus, I’m made of mostly water anyway, and frantically running might cause me to slip and fall. I don’t care about the ‘getting hurt’ part of that. If I slip and fall, I’ll most likely stop enjoying the rain while I recover. I choose that I enjoy it, and protect that by embracing the enjoyment.

It’s common, though, that 5 and 7 are often associated with chaos. I get it. I take no issue with it. I simply don’t buy it. I simply feel 5 & 7 to be Nature’s numbers, where the center is not necessarily in the middle. 1 is not chaos, it is Identity. 3 is not chaos, it is the 1st number of beauty, the 1st number of structure in the self-supporting triangle. Nine is certainly NOT a chaos number. No way. Not at all. 9 is dynamic and fluid and overlapping. 9 is the Nin, the 9th meditative hand gesture kanji of Ninjitsu whose color is White, whose concept is the Tao itself with a hand gesture of thumbs and index fingers held up to the night sky together to form a circular, framed view to focus the Moon into oneself, to experience infinity in the infinitely natural patterns in Nature as a known and felt fact. Especially at night.

Oh, was that supposed to be a secret? Pardon if I don’t step that back. I pick up lotsa rocks to see what hides under them and bring Shadow to light, or just provide the unseen as a complement to the seen, the unknown to the known, in respect of the Shadow. And, I often continue the disciplines I discover there for decades. Hey, I’m a polymath. “Jack of all trades, master of none,” you say? Nope, you see, that’s not the whole quote. That’s a convenient sound byte often utilized to dismiss people when they are multi-talented and have developed those talents into abilities and someone wants clear and concise and… boringly only bottom line simple. Not much value in that from where I sit. The full quote? “Jack of all trades, master of none, is often a more effective ally than a master of one.” Or, some such similar gig.

Oh, and if I’m talking about Nature and numbers and shapes (please click. There is a stunning and beautiful and inspiring video by Cristobal Villa!… always soundS like Crystal Ball Villa/House when I say it. Cool name either way. Almost as cool as his videos),

Ok, numbers and shapes and this and that. I really ought to go ahead and say it. I really ought to being the earth to bear in a 7 of Pentacles way from a solid Pentacles depth beyond. Ok. I’ll say it. The earth is round. No, really. Am I trying to be deceptively simple? Nope. That comes from a solid depth beyond. How do I substantiate that? Hmmm, which example shall I choose? OH! This one!: If the earth were flat, the cats would have already knocked everything off of it by now. Right?!

Enjoy the 7 of Pentacles Mystereum Tarot Moment.

May you reap your ripe ideas actionably!
