Sunday Tarot Services. Ace and Queen and Major

Sunday Services . . .

Short thoughts and visual arias on synchromeshed Tarot cards.

The Ace of Cups and The Queen of Pentacles and Judgment

May you perennially well up with clean emotion, and may brand new things always be waiting in your wings to enhance your natural self-leadership.

Notice the Queen of Pentacles’ throne unfurling as Judgment’s wing.

Or, does the Mystereum Judgment’s wing furl into The Queen of Pentacles’ throne as a nod to her perennial and naturalized personality?  Or, yes both?

Enjoy last week’s Sunday Tarot Service

with The Moon and Temperance

Best to your own alchemical team 

magically mixing where there are no cheap-seats in your game of life.  Play well.  Play with the vibrant motions and emotions informing your intuition from The Moon and Temperance as teammates. Play with the vibrant strength of their inner motion YOUR WAY!

Play with the Tarot Dog Tags of Birth Cards (Shiny copper, too)

May the magical space between day and night that is twilight

also be a magical, continual space between above and below like the magical mixing enhancing strong identities that is Temperance.  May twilight remind you of the unseen and unmoved mover, and resonate through and through like the invigorating experience of a field of sunflowers.

Have a great rest of the weekend and a great week!

Tarot Connecting

Hmm. . . Which card in the Tarot represents the symbolic meaning of the ouroburos?

The World from Land of Mystereum

From my perspective many cards in many ways represent the ouroburos. For now I will go with The World as a verge point of the “that which eats its tail.”  I see the eating of the tail as a “so to speak” gesture present in real-time, change as ongoing as breath, like a tadpole absorbing its tail, leading vestigial qualities to continually be and refresh inherent structural, personal components.  Primitive and instinctual features?, and then the cycle of The World card presents a larger, new world being entered.  Similar for the great white shark of the insect world, the dragonfly.  It goes from being an underwater swimming and voraciously carnivorous larva in a chthonic underworld (so to speak) TO numinous flight above.  Brings in “as above, so below” to be symmetrical as to placement but not relative to its form.  I call it educated symmetry. . . things of different identities placed identically or similarly across an axis though they are different identities, different forms. similarly placed across an axis.  Focusing on the ouroburos (uroburos)’ head-tail connection would be related to this “axis of educated symmetry”. On either side is the same body, but of different form. . .body behind head, body in front of head.  The point where they touch is that cascading-throughout milestone/landmark place where transformation occurs.  The cracking of the once-caterpillar’s-now-but​terfly’s chrysalis is as well this point/place.  And, back to the dragonfly.  It’s whole world began under water. It, then, moves above water, to fly!  “Dragonfly.  Break illusions.  Make change.” is an great totem statement.  It also expresses phases and cycles.  How would one express these on a day to day basis without making an overly-intrusive learning curve?  “Breath is prayer” might work.  I believe Alan Watts expressed that a great deal.  Thx, Alan.

So, all that said, I’ll stick with The World as the card I feel for the Uroburos for now, yet any two cards in sequence can as well can represent the place of the connection of the tail being eaten when seen in light of them both being The Fool becoming the next Fool experience.  Every place, every scale you experience . . . there is a whole world there.  Shifting focus, and redirecting scale . . . Card one the mouth, Card 2 the tail.  How do they continually interact on a deep and presently actionable and ongoing level.  Level.  Singular.  All those roads as components of one.  Mitochondia comes to mind.  Mitochondraical sounds like memory sickness, existential, cellular biology alzheimers in the making.  So, I will stick with mitochondria as a non-sequitur that popped up to squiggly-looking structure express connections.  Like . . . think cell nucleus.  The center is rarely in the middle.

Hmmm, so now I say The World as one card is representative of the ouroburos, and also the space or place between two cards is a whole world as well . . .hmmm, any two cards in a reading to be representative of the transformation.  That sounds a bit nebulous, huh?  Think of a stairway.  Think of the stairs AS a place.  Stairs are themselves a place like the space between.  Stairs are the space between spaces, the place between places.  Stairs themselves, when you are on them, are your place.

And, thinking of that I just thought my way through this to see the little squiggly thing I draw when indicating card relationships to switch up and cascade forth and become the ouroburos.  Heck, I’ve used the Leo-looking squiggly since I was 14.  Squiggling a stroke in, and lasso-ing around back to connect places.  Visualize this.  Nice to refresh it.  My diagramming just transformed a little.   Looking forward to that cascading throughout.  What new world will come of this detail? . . . this place where the snake bites its tail?  What new world comes into play when you transform a crucial detail behind/within your head to become a nourishing place before you?  The ouroburos is in a the-present-is-perpetual state continually taking in a new perspective of itself, its tail end, the ouroburos as a metaphor for bringing the tail-end, the horizon between, seen and unseen, right up for close view.  The snake not seeing its tail, curls to tail-touch-bite.  The snake, tail-biting . . .  its shedded skin not missed.

What new world comes into play when a time similar to after The Tower happens for you where “You, only new” occurs?. . . occurs for you when skins are shedded naturally and not missed, you still you are there, only new?!  Is the shedded skin the nourishment of reinvigoration?  Is the newly discovered and experienced world the nourishment of refreshed places?  Both?  Neither?  Both and more?  The Fool can be the whole ouroburos, and as well the micro-place where the mouth meets the tail.  Foot on the Ma?  Not so much.  The World is your oyster when shedding skins.  The next first touch can be just that grain of sand . . . that irritates . . . OR . . . over time you form a pearl with it.  I would say the choice is yours.  I would rather say that you probably deal with things your way.  Are you an irritation hound, or a pearl maker?

So, where is your center on the move?  How does memory influence and fuel your decisions.  Is not the Uroburos a symbolic reflection on how connections are continually made?  And, further, how they are continually made in real time, at speed, on an ongoing basis?

Which card or experience in your life resonates with the connection of the snake biting/grasping/connecting with the tail of its instinct?

Whichever card or whatever experience, best to your best being present in your way.  Simply said.  What drives you?  Not, what is your foundation, but what drives you?  What is the foundational placement that is always refreshed and refreshing when you connect with it.  Personally, I like chocolate with things like rasberries and chocolate in it.  Break it, and see the colorful constellations of a whole universe that you can taste . . . like your tail . . . only useful for YEAH! kinda continuing with breathe as prayer.

Which card in the Tarot represents the ouroburos to you?  Or, which experiential gig plays this part?

Joy in the Mystery continually solved to You . . . for further breaths.  None of us are getting out alive, so isn’t your play expressive of the higher octave expertise of your everything?  Be your expert.  Play as you do.  Maybe there is a tail awareness there.  Maybe.  Maybe I am simply having a hard time cadence-melodying the language of this blog to finale.  C’est finis.  How’s that?

What is your place of a whole world in a single connection?  What is the World really small?  I’d say the 2 of Pentacles, the most crucial connective tissue, the kernel-shell nucleus of integrated opposites that births the onset of antinomy.

Land of Mystereum 2 of Pentacles

What distinguishes your World from a really small and detail perspective?  What is your place of a whole world in a single connection?

Enjoy connecting the two dots!

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.

Mirrors. Projections. Inspiration!

Picking . . . The Queen of Wands, 2 of Pentacles, & 10 of Wands to express one perspective of the point. . .

Mirrors. Projections. Inspiration!

Everything is n + 1. Each Is More, Each of Us Is More

The Queen of Wands mirrors herself

to envision her blind spots backwards

to naturally flip them

to see right through their mirage

to forget her seeing

remembering the clarity of her energetic vision.

================

The 2 of Pentacles projects its shadow,

the shadow projecting the light,

the black spot on a yin-yang

more than beauty mark,

the white spot more than hope.

They are wormholes both

these dark dot white spot places

within fields of Other. . .

So far into one

as to become. . .

So far into the Other

to feel distinct Self. . .chthonic numinosity,

the depthful light of self.

Antinomy? Nope. Resolved AS life itself.

======================

The 10 of Wands cockatieling what was once weight

cockatieling what was once unwieldy

coackatieling beyond simply holding it all together,

cockatieling wand-feathers temples flexing

fanning them forward effortlessly in yoga-powered form.

Both night and day in inspiration

brought forth chthonically numinous . . . ?

Or, more resolved like a porch n sky by Maigritte?

Night-time depthful front porch lit under dark tree canopy

under bright day-blue eyes-wide-open sky?

====================

And. . .to sidestep copyright violation. . . maybe this painting says it all: “Empire of Lights” by Rene Magritte.

Or, this one. . . Another complete idea expressed by Magritte.  Or, maybe saying or expressing or anything all is not the point.

And, when a triptych is as well quaternal . . . n + 1.   3 + 1 = 4.

Triptych of paintings also as group, a 4th, the quaternity of group.

Triptych in number = Quaternity of the group

And, n + 1.

And, there’s always more . . .

Even less is more, more or less.

Till next time!

Jupiter’s Blessings,

Jordan

p.s. This “Stoicheion-Somata Tarot” article by Christine Payne-Towler plays well with/on Aristotle via the Pythagorean sandbox.

They aren’t really oil and water, though each relatively useless without the other? Ground and dancing figure?

Connective Tissue & The 2 of Pentacles

~ Natural balance at the smallest scale.                 ~ The most crucial connective tissue.
~ Basic, solid equality nourishing equanimity.
~ The responsibility of taking on only what you can handle while you size up the trailheads of choice paths.

Enter the 2 of Pentacles

we love the stable balance present in how you team up
with your ideas as important assets.
The Chariot comes to our home to rest and relax.

We dig that we are in similar lines of life.
~ A FREE sample Imagination Tool from The Two of Pentacles:
We gift you a direct line of polarity from your feet to your imagination.
Let yourself feel your own two feet clearly.
Feel subtle things with your feet cascade through your imagination as you experience them.
Polarity. Unseen connections? Insta, non-local cascades!
