An Ode to Readers Studio 10

Hi All,

As I cannot attend RS11 this year, I thought I would rediscover a vital Readers Studio 10 remembrance of Donnaleigh’s Breakfast Roundtable presentation.  Donnaleigh made such a wonderful presentation including a spread that inspired me to naturally drop my standard issue note-taking style —  note that if I am not inspired this is RARE!,  and work in my more intense and native, visual language as I do in architectural meetings to pack so much in. 

Enjoy her post!  I can simply say that my drawing that she so graciously included is but a  facet of the wonderfully effective presentation and spread she put together, and for those of you new to RS11 provides a taste of what you can expect . . . though of course each year there is more and better.  And, she did this in the morning, predicated on not much coffee or tea.  😀  Check out her post as my gift to you from my RS10 experience to my absence at RS11.  Click on “her post.”   Enjoy! 

This image now comes to mind as a nugget expressive of the power of bridging Donnaleigh presented:

The Original Mystereum Tarot Fool

Enjoy this post for all it is worth, and that is a great deal! 

Jupiter’s Blessings,

Jordan

Comparative Tarot: The 9 of Pentacles

 

Aside from a garden naturalizing so to speak as they perennially do . . .

First year roots . . .

Second year foliage . . .

Third year flowers and fruit . . .

What chords are struck to resonate with each of the iterations of the Mystereum 9 of Pentacles images?

Birth-Placing Identity ~ The Nines


Tarot Birth Identities: The Nines + a Birth Card Finale!

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 and hopefully invigorating walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to your identity.  Also, I will layer in my concept of 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 catalysts, as triggers to remind one how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of each Birth Card combo into a single, incorporated and integrated voice.  Enjoy finding your own path with my Prelude versions of Birth Card Groupings.  I look forward to hearing your own, personal catalyst and trigger Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of them.  Have fun with ’em!  Whether you post yours here or not when you craft your own, as they can be great tools for you, personally, and no-one else, my wish is that this blog series promotes you in your own way to shine in the way only you do . . . like The Sun.

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like the upcoming Nines Invigorate video on my YouTube channel.  9’s video to be released in the near future. Please enjoy the other videos in the interim, and full-on share them if you dig ’em. Thanks Mucho when you do!  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, and of course chiefly for your own Birth-Placing Identity set.  In The Land of Mystereum the Courts present themselves as Your Royal Courts . . . so enjoy taking ownership of your Tarot Birth Cards in YOUR own way!  I hope this blog series can provide a vital step for you that way!

So, let’s get started with the Nines in from a Land of Mystereum perspective, shall we?

THE MOON -~THE HERMIT
XVIII ~ IX  ::  18 ~ 9
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 9, and thus correspond with the Nines in general, and the upcoming Nines Invigorate video on my YouTube Channel.
9’s Birth Card Prelude: With The Moon ~ The Hermit as your Birth Cards you may often experience a naturally aware and awakened inner and outer reflection connecting you to unseen places.          
See how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 characters as facets of one personality?
The Hermit ~ you may often experience a naturally aware and awakened inner and outer
The Moon ~ reflection connecting you to unseen places. (like the moon reflecting the unseen [identity of the] sun  . . . which of course beautifully comes next in the Majors)
~ Notice the cross-over overlappage in the mixed order of the single, integrated Prelude statement that can be gifted by the 2 cards working together.  Integration in these kinds of Prelude statements may very well indicate that things are rarely simply put in line like dominoes disconnected, working together(?), and as well also set to fall.  Maybe not linear.  Then again. . . In the Prelude The Hermit gifts his portion to the 1st part of the statement asThe Moon chimes in to reflect the 2nd part.  With integration of concepts imaginatively, things are incorporated, integrated, like a well-made 3-day rue is folded into and simmered into a gumbo.  Certainly not two things once served up.  The 2 portions mix and blend and contribute inter-locking strengths to enhance and bring about the creation of something different than the two separate characters.  Something new made by teaming things up this way.  Maybe as well that is how metaphor is made . . . like Andre Breton expressing, “The world is blue, like an orange.”  Two things put together in an integrated way that in short-form tell a new story.  With The Moon ~ The Hermit, I suggest to ask the question, “What new quality is revealed in my personality each time things team up and are incorporated this way?”  Visualize making a souflle.  The eggs whites are folded in in 2 stages.  They are incorporated across the process.  I suggest to think about this in just that way.  Hungry yet?  I certainly am. What about this?  Portabella Polenta Souflle with Mediterranean rice and a bruschetta . . . that oughta do it, and maybe leave one of the 3 as ‘WOW, I am full . .n rockin’ leftovers tomorrow.  Do Birth-Placing Identities of Preludes work that way?

Back in to the cards.  YOUR cards if these are Your Birth Card paring.

~ The Moon as indicating a natural reflection, the inner identity of la luna, The Moon, unlit as hiding in plain sight always there . . . to influence constant reflection?  To reflect in Your own way, like the moon does the sun?
~ The Hermit as a light insightfully reflected forward while at one and the same time peering into and illuninating and utilizing the chthonic darkness, maybe living in both at one and the same time like a Chthonic Numinosity =’ing Self?.  The Fisherman in Hemingway’s “Old Man and the Sea” might just be this.  Or, Jung’s expression of the ichthios, the glowing-eyed fish yanked from the deep.  Something tells me that Harold in “Harold and the Purple Crayon” is a Moon ~ Hermit character unfettered by any reason other than to live and act wisely with his own vibrance in time, cycles of experience integrated whether they have been experienced or not.  Inner inheritances as expressed in “The Land of Mystereum” brings to mind, “From the mouth of babes.”  And, I am not talking about the annual Sports Illustrated issue or Maxim or insert your own rockin’ visual rag issue.

The Moon card can represent your Outer Expression.  This is how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Moon card is known for its ability to reflect light from unseen sources as it influences your feelings constantly like the moon.  Get past the barrage to what YOU resonate with?  With The Moon card representing your Outer Expression experience the filters with which you influence your world. These are of primary importance.  Know that your cycles may move in a faster gear like the moon’s direct movement through and to and continually across the astrological signs of the zodiac.  Keep sight of shifting with your cycles as you are wise in time.  Your sense of meaning may poignantly and effectively occur simply in your each and every act, in your direct and actionable expressions not so much in need of explanation.  You may naturally cycle through the personalities of your ideas on a daily basis, even shifting your mode idea to idea with as much versatility as the moon influences each astrological sign as it continually moves through them.  Self-influencing itself where it is via its reflections?  Rather than reasons being unreasonable, you may simply, naturally act in the living of your life.  You may naturally act wise in time as directly as the moon continues its orbit.  Shift and corner and enhance and reinforce and strengthen the quality of your versatile ability to perform.  May I suggest to look into keeping track of the Void Of Course cycles of the moon?  To start things with a distinct sense of them?  You may be as agile in your moods as you are in your motion, especially when they tango together.  It is pretty Mercurial to be as agile in your moods as your motion.  But, visualize the substance of mercury.  The alchemists did.  It is metal . . . that flows . . . at room temperature of course.  And, maybe that depends on the room?   I would not advise touching mercury in any way, though, other than visualizing it or empathising with its qualities.  You probably already knew that.

The Hermit can represent your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends may ‘see’. The Hermit as your Inner Expression can symbolize that you have an active and reflective inner light that leads your way.  You have a natural and thoughtful ability to illuminate mysteries as you mind and develop yourself, literally aware in minding yourself.  In some cards The Hermit sees his/her footsteps, aware and noticing the current placement in a familiar place.  And, this awareness of bith completed cycles AND an integration with current cycles, sometimes quite a Tower interrogation and replacement that I will call integrative experience may well be a chief feature of The Hermit’s ability to see familiar things in a new light.  To see and utilize familiar things differently, each time in a refreshing way that promotes vitality like dead-heading in a garden.  With The Hermit your illumination emanates from your experiences as your continual mastery and awareness of placement leads you to further discoveries.

“Tarot in the Land of Mystereum: An Imagination Primer” provides Imagination Tools to re-focus the emotional refraction of anxiety, to enhance and reinforce and strengthen your activities in just YOUR way!  Try it and see. Take a look.

And, back to the order of this blog, your The Moon ~ The Hermit Birth Cards, and Birth-Placing your identity.

To put The Moon and The Hermit back together again into an Exalted Prelude or an Evolved Prelude = minus card names: You may often experience a naturally aware and awakened inner and outer reflection connecting you to unseen places.  Note that the cards are intentionally not mentioned in this second Prelude statement which I call an Exalted or Evolved Prelude. They are not really missing, though.  Are they simply and vitally present in the statement like the color of your eyes relative to you?  Are they embedded and contributory features? Or, is an Exalted Prelude, an Evolved Prelude what you come up with when you utilize the cards as counsel, and then make your own decision about how they work together?  . . . like in a reading! . . . where it becomes not a “they told me. . . ,” but a statement of your own that you supports you?  Your client? I feel an Exalted/Evolved Prelude has cut the strings, has unlocked the docking clamps like on Star Trek.  You can feel the float, or, hear your inner Jean Luc Picard with a confident finger uplifted to direct, say, “enGAGE!”  Exalt yourself  Evolve yourself!  Arrogance is ancillary and relatively useless.  Smiles are rockin’!  I often wonder if confidence without even a whiff of arrogance . . . is that another way to say someone is clearly having fun?  Hmmm . . . and maybe like a lion or tiger . . . expert skill can be naturally masked in play?

I hope you have enjoyed this The Moon ~ The Hermit 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: An Imagination Primer” is all about your life-long process to continually emancipate your Tarot voice in YOUR way.  Teachers are rockin’, gurus not so much, at least from my point of view.  I remember in a meeting someone telling me there was no “I” in team. They were simply frustrated in general so I smiled silently thinking, *maybe their lunch burrito wasn’t sitting so well?  Problems at home? Elsewhere?*  I had to laugh, though, when someone else chimed in right after, “There’s no U, either.” 😀  There is certainly U in gurU, though, YOU kinda “U”.  With your naturally aware and awakened Hermit ~ Moon Inner and Outer Expressions connectingyou to unseen places . . . you may well know how much we are each created in the image of . . .  and consequently each HAVE the face of . . . and further that you are your only ruler in the face of . . . YOU!

Hmmm, ever heard of the book “Animal Speak” by Ted Andrews?  Great book!  I highly recommend it to layer in another facet to your daily life and as well to flesh out the experience of animals you come across.  I encourage you to experience them as totems, as living Oracle cards as they cross your path, as they enter and populate and pass through your experience . . . like the inner inheritance your were born with of your Birth Cards!  May animals enter your experience as companions, simply for a while, or just wonderfully passing through and saying, “Hi”, as they lend their personality, their story, to your story.  May your Birth Cards enter your experience.

But, thinking about “Animal Speak” and your natural inner and outer reflection that connects you to unseen places . . .that just gave me an idea!  With your Moon ~ Hermit dynamic duo . . . Are you your own living totem or are you unseen to yourself?  Do you exalt yourself without arrogance for your highest good?  Do you smile in darkness?  What happens when you securely place your natural Moon ~ Hermit to live as your own totem?  Does it accentuate you to activate your highest good?  If so, what do you do with that?  What would then occur when there is a You-sighting?  What would you like to happen when there is a You-sighting?

Thanks for your valuable time.  Much appreciated.  If this article freed you up to be more YOU in ways that only you can be like The Sun, I am thankful.

And, in closing this Tarot in the Land of Mystereum style exploration of your Tarot Birth Cards, discovering through the process of Birth-Placing your identity, I would like to extend a precis, a synopsis of these 9 Birth-Placing Identity with Preludes blogs for you.  Here is a Prelude section for Birth Card personalities, for Birth-Placing your identity.  I call these Preludes the integrated, individual personality of each Birth Card set as I feel they provide a bearing, an informed direction, to simply synopsize and provide triggers for Birth Card Groupings as personalities.  In each form they are placed in their respective locations throughout this blog series as whole Birth Card expressions, but I place the Birth Card Preludes here again, afterwards, as I feel they provide stronger triggers once you know the more fleshed out expressions above.  Enjoy grouping them in any way that you feel that they strike chords that best resonate with you, with you in your naturally enjoyable voice, in whatever place you are.  And, I encourage you to craft your own Birth-Placing Birth Card Preludes from what resonates from Mystereum and / or your fave deck!

THE Preludes of the personality of your Birth Card Set: some subtly different than presented before, as I their adjectives and movement may fluctuate like the tides here and there as they live and move . . . like the versatile You?!
SUN ~ WHEEL ~ MAGICIAN Prelude: With The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician as your Birth Cards you may often experience magical cycles of identity.
JUDGMENT ~ JUSTICE – HIGH PRIESTESS Prelude: With Judgment ~ Justice ~ High Priestess as your Birth Cards you may often experience continually renewed and far-reaching intuition that is fair and balanced.
JUDGMENT ~ STRENGTH ~ HIGH PRIESTESS Prelude: With Judgment ~ Strength ~ High Priestess as your Birth Cards you may often experience perennial renewal of your natural inner voice infused with far-reaching intuition.
THE WORLD ~ THE HANGED MAN ~ THE EMPRESS Prelude: With The World ~ The Hanged Man ~ The Empress as your Birth Cards you may often experience expansively afloat in clarity as you abundantly carry things to full term.
DEATH ~ EMPEROR Prelude: With Death ~ The Emperor as your Birth Cards you may often experience transformational senses of place.
TEMPERANCE ~ HIEROPHANT Prelude: With Temperance ~ The Hierophant as your Birth Cards you may often experience potently stable and magically mixing mind-body connections.  Consider yourself to be mindbodybeautiful, all one word.
THE DEVIL ~ THE LOVERS Prelude: With The Devil ~ The Lovers as your Birth Cards you may often experience vibrant and living healthy desires mutually exchanged.  Is this like Temperance engaged?!, a Prelude further integrating a Prelude into a Turbo Exalted Prelude of relishing in everyday moments, everyday devotions clearly with rockin’ comms?
THE TOWER ~ THE CHARIOT Prelude: With The Tower ~ The Chariot as your Birth Cards you may often experience vast abilities to orchestrate your momentum on the fly, at speed, and effectively re-orchestrate like The Emperor . . . going step by step?  Step by step in an Audi R8 rockin’-purr of 7,200 rpm racing forward strongly placed, popping the clutch at 3,800 in each gear, to change your pace and re-orchestrate your whole system in a single step?  Naturally and always effectively?  Have some fun in the slalom course.  Stronglt steer regardless.
THE STAR ~ STRENGTH Prelude: With The Star ~ Strength as your Birth Cards you may often experience your own voice bringing hope.
THE STAR ~ JUSTICE Prelude (sneaky add-in here): With The Star ~ Justice as your Birth Cards you may often experience a bright and celestial sense of renewal in and from your actions and the inspired responses you receive.
THE MOON ~ THE HERMIT Prelude: With The Moon ~ The Hermit as your Birth Cards you may often experience a naturally aware and awakened inner and outer reflection connecting you to unseen places.
If this blog strikes chords that resonate with you, I encourage you to pass it along and spread the word. Share at will~  &, Jean Luc responds from Data’s research foray . . . ,”Engage SHARE!”  Thanks mucho for your support!

‘Till next time.

Eights: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Eights

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 Eights Elevate & Exalt video on my YouTube channel .   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 Eights Land of Mystereum-style, shall we?

THE STAR ~ STRENGTH
XVII ~ VIII  ::  17 ~ 8
Note that Justice is VIII in Mystereum with Strength as XI. So, you may find that a STAR ~ JUSTICE pairing fits you more personally. It all depends on how you roll with YOUR Tarot sequencing.  Lots of hullaballoo around VIII & XI, 8 & 11 in Tarot discussions . . . some good, some great, some not-so much.  Some say one system is older and therefore sets a precedent.  Others say oh NO that canNOT BE!  Oh well. I will simply let the karma run over the dogma here. In Mystereum it’ll ALL depend on which way strikes a chord to resonate with you.  Might I suggest to be just as aware of a prover as you are of what they are proving?  

Depending, some reasons may be unreasonable, and some people make too much sense to argue with . . . even when they make that much sense and are SO on the other side of the universe about an idea. . . or, maybe that simply me.  Anyway, my li’l diplomatic rant’ll end there 😀   I look forward to express THE STAR ~ JUSTICE as a pairing in a future blog.  Here I will express the Star ~ Strength Birth Card Grouping . . . and that in itself should settle any tizzies down that are going on about which is which, at least maybe long enough to read this blog? . . . as I mentioned up there, Justice is VIII, 8 in Mystereum . . . but, my nod here the other way in no way says GOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! like on Soccer TV for either. I simply made a decision to play a different station today.  Hopefully FM in stereo. . . or a really high quality 8-track of Willie & Waylon.  Shotgun Willie!

OK, pipes blown out, let’s REALLY get started with the Eights Birth Card Grouping Land of Mystereum-style.

THE STAR ~ STRENGTH
XVII ~ VIII  ::  17 ~ 8
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 8, and thus correspond with the Eights in general, and the (upcoming) Eights Elevate & Exalt video on my ‘Jordan & The Land of Mystereum’ YouTube Channel .

8’s Birth Card Prelude: With The Star ~ Strength as your Birth Cards you may often experience the clear strength of your own natural, inner animal in your voice that brings you wits and eternal hope as you continually find your cosmic groove and go for it.

See how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 characters as facets of one personality?

~ Strength ~ you may often experience the clear strength of your own natural, inner animal in your voice that brings you wits 

~ The Star ~ and eternal hope as you continually find your cosmic groove and go for it.

~ Notice the cross-over overlappage in the mixed order of the single, integrated 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? Maybe as well that is how metaphor is made . . . like Andre Breton expressing, “The world is blue, like an orange.”

~ Strength as indicating not to tame the beast, but control of one’s natural, inner animal? One’s instincts utilized as easily as speaking? The power of voice? That if you unsync with your own inner animal you . . . (insert “when Animals Attack” graphic)?

~ The Star as light traveling across eternity to reach you at every moment? To blink and wink at you? Hope in the dark? The black spot on a yin-yang symbol is more than just a beauty mark.  The white dot?

The Star card can represent your Outer Expression.  This is how most people may ‘see’ you in the world.  The Star card is known for its ability to show you your resonant, celestial groove and the eternal hope that drives you to chime in and follow it. With the Star card as your Outer Expression maybe you are represented by the the cosmic ways you direct yourself.  Know that hope is eternal.  Keep sight of that to dispense with anxiety altogether.  Is anxiety emotional refraction?  The Star smoking hope, illusory?  Hmm, Hope doesn’t grow in the dirt.

Strength can represent your Inner Expression.  This may be a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’. Strength as your Inner Expression may symbolize that you have a natural power to tune both your voice and your silences.  Is your voice like music and the space between the notes silence, both beautifully orchestrated together?  With Strength you may have a natural ability to develop and speak ideas with a perfect pitch as you modulate the tenor of your expressions like weather washing through. Remember that icky anxiety up there?  May emotions wash through you like weather, like they do with an animal.  If the water’s bad, let it go, and certainly don’t drink it kinda thing.

The Land of Mystereum can provide tools to re-focus the emotional refraction of anxiety. Try it and see. You can get yours at Amazon .

And, back to the order of this blog, your The Star ~ Strength Birth Cards. 😀

To put them back together again in an Evolved Prelude = minus card names: You may often experience the clear strength of your own natural, inner animal in your voice that brings you wits and eternal hope as you continually find your cosmic groove and go for it.  Note the cards are intentionally not mentioned in this second Prelude. They are not really missing, though.  Are they simply and vitally present like the color of your eyes? As embedded and contributory features? Or, is an Evolved Prelude what you come up with when you utilize the cards as counsel, and then make your own decision . . . where it becomes not a “they told me. . .,” but a statement of your own that you supports you? I feel an Evolved Prelude has cut the strings, unlocked the docking clamps like on Star Trek.  You can feel the float, or, enGAGE!

I hope you have enjoyed this The Star ~ Strength 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.  I remember i a meeting someone telling me there was no I in team.  You have to laugh when someone else chimes in, “There’s no U, either.”  There certainly is U in gurU.  With your eternal hope and naturalized Star ~ Strength inner-animal voice narrating your way, rather than being created in the image of . . . you may well know how much we each HAVE the face of . . .

Hmmm, ever heard of the book “Animal Speak” by Ted Andrews.  Great book!  I highly recommend it for the Oracle cards of animals as totems as they cross your path, enter your experience, whether as a companion, for a while, or simply passing through to say, “Hi”.

But, thinking about “Animal Speak” and your inner-animal and your clarity of voice just gave me an idea.  With your Star ~ Strength dynamic duo . . .  Are you your own living totem? Can you live as your own totem?  What occurs when there is a You-sighting?  What would you like to happen when there is a You-sighting?

Thanks for your valuable time.  Much appreciated. If this article freed you up to be more you in ways only you can be like The Sun , I am thankful.  

If this blog strikes chords that resonate with you, I encourage you to pass it along and spread the word.  Thanks mucho for your support!
‘Till next time.

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?

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 re-orchestrate your momentum in world-altering ways.
            See how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 characters as facets of one personality?
The Tower ~ in world-altering ways; to re-orchestrate
The Chariot ~ you may often experience vast abilities (to re-orchestrate) your momentum

~ 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.

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

~ 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 in motion and 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.  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?  All I can say is check out Tarot in the Land of Mystereum, and maybe you can do this quality justice 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.

Jupiter’s Blessings from The Land of Mystereum,
