Fives: Birth-Placing Identity

Tarot Birth Identities: The Fives

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 look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of them.

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like the Aces Four Potential and Twos To Pair on my website and YouTube channel — check out links below.  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, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well Your Royal Court characters.

So, let’s get started with the Fives Land of Mystereum-style, shall we?

XIV ~ V  ::  14 ~ 5
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 5, and thus correspond with the Fives in general, and the Fives Come Alive video soon to be released on my YouTube Channel at .
5’s Birth Card Prelude: With Temperance ~ The Hierophant as your Birth Cards you have the ability to experience potently stable and magically mixing down-to-earth mind-body connections.
            See how the simple Prelude statement expresses the 2 characters as facets of one personality?  Letting it flow out a bit, to expand the simplicity.  Temperance ~ you have the ability to experience potently stable and magically mixing.  The Hierophant ~ down-to-earth mind-body connections.

Temperance as alchemical mixing, magical mixing?  The Hierophant as bringing spirit down to the earth?  The “continual” aspect of The Hierophant here makes for an altogether new take on the Traditionalist . . . or Hierophant on a bad day as the stubborn and unbending traditionalist.  I find that this continual aspect applies to The Hierophant especially aptly in the context of this Birth Card dynamic duo.  Feels like Temperance might have rubbed off on the Hierophant, and maybe The Hierophant rubs off some discipline to the magical mixing ritual of Temperance . . .  and brings them together as a cohesive alchemy.  I rather like that.

With this Birth Card dynamic duo The Temperance card as a higher number can represent your Outer Expression, you, elevated and expressing yourself.  This is how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Temperance card is known for its ability to balance contrasting intensities.  With the Temperance card representing your Outer Expression experience your natural abilities to bring things together, to magically mix them much as nature does.   Know that you can pour away interruptions without upsetting the balanced continuity of your flow.  Keep sight to continually keep each contrasting intensity strong in its identity and freshly contributing to continually build value.

The Hierophant represents your Inner Expression, the depth of your identity, your character.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’.  The Hierophant as your Inner Expression can symbolize that you have natural abilities to feel down-to-earth mind-body connections.  You have a down-to-earth spirit with which to infuse your world.  New spirit is continually brought in, down to earth, and there you are your own father figure or traditionalist placing and integrating things in your own, personal way.

Putting them back together again in Prelude form minus the titles, incorporating them as a reflection and expression of personality:  You have the ability to experience potently stable and magically mixing down-to-earth mind-body connections . . . matter of factly as a normal personality trait.  And, this is SO not normal . . . Is this one of your natural qualities that you are able to exalt to keep the things you do refreshed and in so doing free yourself up to build more value in your life?  I find that when things are integrated AND contribute their own strength of identity in their own ways, oftentimes simplicity is also vibrantly expansive.  Like the ocean, always continually ebbing, constantly flowing.  Always is still simply the ocean, simply a body of water, and my my expansively deep and discovery-quest-level HUGE!
I hope you have enjoyed this Temperance ~ Hierophant Birth Card Identity Blog.  May you 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.  “All similar, each unique” as The Land of Mystereum’s mascot says.  I will also put some more words in Chiron’s mouth ;-D and add, “Always complete, and never finished.”
And, in closing . . . Enter The Hierophant speaking directly
“I am the Hierophant, your spirit continually coming to the earth.  I am the source of your life force.  I fill you with light.  I permeate Mystereum along with The Hermit, and address you with ‘I’ to stabilize your identity for love in The Lovers to come next.  The Hermit’s wise and reflective light comes to provide a darkness that consolidates ideas like the moon.  Through the wisdom of that which is pure and not-knowing, I provide an inner light which turns on the mystery of life itself.  Turn on the mystery of life itself within you and I am there.  Feel it in your ideas!”
