Coupled Cards Tarot Thoughts 2c + OØ∞

With each as the heartbeat of the other

Let’s compose a Two of Cups + The Fool OØ∞

 Tarot Thought…

Deciding to naturally bring your feelings together with your journey amplifies your vision for more fulfilling discoveries.

Plus, I firmly believe that the O on the Colman-Smith Tarot deck’s Fool card is not a zero. It is a circle, O, the unfolded lemniscate ∞. The circle indicating the infinity of the journey of Self.

====

Give this a whirl! Have fun coupling your cards, and see what YOU come up with as a single idea where each card is the heartbeat of the other to really get your cards activated and alive and moving. It’s like Frankenstein for your cards without all the running and chasing and screaming. Cheers!

Tarot. Mystereum. The Presence of the Fool

The Presence Of The Tarot Fool

This cameo appearance theme of Major Arcana cards appearing in multiple cards, both other Majors and in Minors to inform their story further so as not to minimize The Minors, is at the heart of the very structure of Mystereum.  Here’s a frickin’ bad-ass funny sidebar, a mini-rant to open up this Fool presence article.  In a recent review Mystereum was recommended for fluffy-bunny readings.  Hmmmm. too many plush toys may indicate issues.  So, No, not so much.  Thank You for playing some of your time to Mystereum in a review, yet I prefer zero to not paying attention.  When in Rome Ya know?!  If something is non-derivative, it may be best to get into another gear, and express it relative to its own language rather than the is-not-derivative-thus-is-not-relative-to-that-which-it-is-non-derivative-of.  I don’t think I would try to translate Latin with Sanskrit.  My feeling in public response here is that one person’s misinterp as “fluffy bunny” is simply a potential manner of interp/misinterp of the higher-octave-of-finding-the-workability-present-in-any-situation.  So, I guess there isn’t a rant.  More of a oh-well-hands-up and no accounting for taste, huh?

What’s this workability thing I’m talking about?  Well, even if you know EVERYTHING that is wrong with something, it still leaves you only one thing.  Everything else.  That’s pretty dang vague, huh?  It certainly may impress some people how many cons you know about something, yet that may simply be your ego conning you into thinking you haven’t wasted all your time being a nay-sayer know-it-all . . . which is to say a buzzkiller, a complainer.  Knowing what’s right about something makes for workability.  Workability can lead to building further value.  Names are important, so are flyswatters.

Back to the regular programming . . .

The Fool in The Land of Mystereum plays 2 visual storytelling parts, appears in 2 cards.  There is The Fool card, and as well The Fool guest stars, makes a cameo appearance in The Tower.  It felt very natural for The Fool to appear in this way a as a large, perennial thread of a card alluding to places in The Land of Mystereum. The place in your life before The Tower.  The place after.  There is also The Wheel and The World.  Why doesn’t The Fool cameo there, too?  There are 4 directions.  The Fool played the 2 directions in the vertical scale of height in the rise of The Tower.  The Wheel and The World run the scale horizontally, cyclically playing out the 2 directions of time and scale.

The Fool appearing

in The Fool card visually expresses the story of a leap of faith of course, yet this expression is the leap of faith that is not literally leaping or jumping.  The Fool’s trust of journey is so thorough in each Fool-step that new golden ground alchemically terraforms up under each new Fool-step.

The Fool appearing

in The Tower card visually expresses the story of The Fool riding in on the Golden Fabric of Truth, the 4-pillared, golden symbol of community, 4 pairs partnering with each other and together neighboring with one another . . . the truth of self and place with others . . . and out of The Fool’s vocal Thor-hammered lightning bolt of truth blast-razing The Tower . . . who is that emerging to say Hello out of the bottom of the lightning bolt as it exits the crumbling Tower?   Well, I’ll be!  Is that The Chariot cameoing here in his corresponding Tarot Birth Card?  Why, yes it is!   Take a walk through your Mystereum deck.  Pick a character, any character.  Have a character scavenger hunt.  How many places do they appear throughout the deck?  Many cards play the chorus of their support cameo for more depthful character contributions to your readings.  Can you find the one card that is totally alone in the deck?  Is there one?

Also, check out the 7’s Birth Card article, and there will also be more on The Chariot once we get to The Presence Of The Chariot in The Land of Mystereum “Presence Of” series.

Best to the ground alchemically rising up to meet your every golden Fool-step along your way!

Check out previous “Presence Of” articles to discover more about the coordinated dynamism present throughout Mystereum.

The Presence Of The Priestess to see her guest starring cameos that further inform cards with her presence in The Land of Mystereum.

Thanks for visiting!  Best to this “Presence Of” series more fully elucidating one of the naturally hidden structures that are alive and well in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum.  Much like construction documents and specifications . . . suffice it to say that these cameo appearances are a lot like Consultant Coordination . . . strike that . . . they ARE Consultant Coordination of the family of players character to character throughout Mystereum.  Huh.  Who knew? 😉

Enjoy a short video about hidden structures . .  .

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 #2

The Land of Mystereum.

. . . where Tarot cards speak!

Tarot’s Fool

As with appearance vs reality in literature,

Is The Fool about to jump off of a cliff or fall in a chasm?

I would venture to say no.

Taking a leap of faith? Definitely!

Maybe though, . . . rather than about to jump off a cliff foolishly,

The Fool’s trust of Fool-way-fulfilling-footsteps brings . . .

the ground under each and every footstep to terra-form and support each step.

Trusting your way, all similar, each unique,

Leap faithfully YOUR WAY!

And, may new ground form under your every step

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

Leaps of faith sometimes do not require one to leave the ground.

What hidden supports are in your world?

May your faithful steps leap-lead your way

as new worlds form under your every step!

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
