Tarot Turning My Infinity Into Eight

Tarot Turning My Infinity Into 8

Welcome from Joanna Powell Colbert’s Gaian Soul blog to this Tarothoppin’ segment along your TarotBlogHop dance of “How can I be the best candle?”!

Starting “Tarot Turning My Infinity Into Eight” I corralled myself to stand and deliver for this blog by drawing two cards, and having a video come to mind . . . all of which of course will probably not cascade into this blog LOL.  LOL? Why is that funny?  ‘Cause, like in theatre, the warm-up is often not a part of the performance! And, it’s often a fun part of the dance that I didn’t want you to miss out on.  Sometimes, it is more important to simply GET started than express the reason why you did.  Reasons can be unreasonable, often a kind of looking back.  And, in fact reasons can seriously and specifically get in the way.  If you look at ’em too much you may bump into stuff rather than dancing forward.  Minding that reasons are unreasonable, I mind that form follows priority, and as well there are things that come to mind that simply do.  Like the 10 of Swords, Strength, and a video!

10 of Swords ~ Release!!  Rock bottom is a dang strong place to stand, stomp your feet, dance-stomp your feet, and step up to smile in and continue the TarotBlogHop dance!

Strength ~ VIII or XI depending on how you bust a move n shake it!  ~ Working the power of your natural (inner animal [totem]) voice. What’s yours?!!

Video in the warm-up here. 😉

And, things tend to work in sequence, huh?

Tarot Turning My Infinity Into Eight

How can I be the best candle?  I can be the best candle by providing a voice of making nebulous things more clear in effective ways for people.  Is it simply my 10th House Neptune and Mercury conjunct, Neptunian boundaryless concepts that I down-to-the-earth ground (ground as a verb)?  Maybe it is not that at all.  Maybe it is only that?  Maybe that is simply one of my many Path-Candlelarios in the dark, or bag-alarios as I call ‘em here in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA that silver-night-line-the-path of the psychic paper-bags-with-unseen-candle lights that naturally support me in my teaching?  And, astrologically, what does THAT mean?!! Neptune and Mercury conjunct? Whatsa conjunct mean?!! Makes like conjunction junction what’s your function?  In my case, it means . . . two things that taste great together .  . that you might not have thought of putting together.

My brand of best-candle conjunction?

Hookin’ up boundaryless concepts to specific and actionable things, and then making effective actions out of things that were initially formless.

Tarot Turning My Infinity Into Eight

I can be the best candle by . . .

I see with cat’s ears.  What does that mean? Like a cat focused on you that hears something else, they simply turn an ear, and they literally see a whole world behind them with that ear without ever turning their focus away from you. And then, they still have another eye of an ear left if they need. I experience the world that way.  I see with cat’s ears. My 6th sense, my psychic abilities, my personal brand of psychic abilities . . . my 5 senses seamlessly synchromesh into a 6th sense that informs me. That is simply my way. And, my quality of seeing with cat’s ears comes with a wonderful affect. It gives me the gift of a personal candle lit not only to be able to see things in the dark . . . to also see things differently in the dark.

Seeing with cat’s ears gives me a gift to be able to see differently into the dark?  Why is this a gift? If Seeing-With-Cat’s-Ears gifts me the ability to also find unlit candles in the dark, it also gifts me the ability to see unlit candles for both myself and for others. Personally, I find this to be DISCOVERY on steroids, and also quite useful.  I find it to be quite normal. And, in my experience the things I find quite normal are usually far from that. My candle is lit to bring others to allow them to find their own, unlit candles in their own dark. My candle is lit to help discover others’ unlit candles in the dark as their own, unseen gifts, to find their own, inner strengths. And, your inner strengths can be trained once you light them up, and/or simply find them in the dark as available for later.

Seeing with cat’s ears . . . I help to discover others’ unlit candles in the dark. I can be a better candle by making my “normal” experience of the boundarylessness of inifinity into an eight. What does that mean?

I can be the best candle by making ithe infinity I cat’s-ear-see specific.

I can be the best candle by helping others to focus in to discover their personal, nebulous things.  To work with daydreaming or those things they are naturally drawn to yet then turn away from as they might feel they are a waste time . . . as, I bet in a lot of cases . . . they are “normally” and naturally turning themselves towards something.  And, maybe they turn off of them when  . . . uh hem . . . .  allegedly nothing gets done. . . and make these “naturally turned towards things” into . . . something specific and usable and  effective for them that . . . well . . . naturally resonates with them with ease.  Then, there is also rest and relief, from one thing and another in the creative process.  What do YOU hear?  What actually makes the cut after the curtain goes up?  We can go into that another time.

I can be a better candle by taking the elevator Muzak of Nothingness to show people how to apply that quality in effective ways in their lives.

I can be a better candle by providing my gift of making unseen things real, to help others find their nascent gifts, the ones that are asleep or unseen, and that found, allow them to brightly wake themselves up further on their path.

I can be the best candle by helping others find their unlit candles in the dark, and to show them how to light them!

In closing I can be a better candle and my best candle by consciously directing my teaching and Tarot readings to help others learn and teach themselves by more directly focusing on their defocused times . . . and find the gifts that hide in plain and silent sight for them to continually discover and utilize effectively.  Things hiding in plain sight, unlit candles in the dark can be ROCKIN’!!  And, a video musica seque towards the end for you that  . . . I EVEN have no words other than  YES! . . . and Koan-Ciding . . . Go to Kareena’s blog, and come back and watch this for a get-ya-going dancefloor sound experience for you!

On to the next TarotBlogHop!  May these all be similar, may they each be unique, and may each of them open your eyes and allow you to better find your unlit candles in the dark. Unlit candles in the dark.  Discover.  Light.  . . . May your unlit candles, found and lit, further inspire your life!

Blessings, Jordan

Tarot Cards Repeating?

When Tarot Cards Repeat Reading After Reading . . .

When a card or cards come up multiple times when reading for myself, reading after reading, to me it feels like successive laps on the track continuously voicing their time-message, their presence, each time differently, to inform me from different perspectives, as a chorus of a card voicing its multiply informing messages.  Meaning, it is my job to resonate more with its/their iterations, as if the card is pulse-cycling to gift me a fuller meaning before I slingshot out of a curve back onto the straightaway powered by it and the other card(s). Meaning, “I am trying to message you!,” the cards seem to say.

Allow the 3 of Wands to simply be here.  If it resonates to add anything . . . how so from your perspective?

4 of Swords ~ Queen of Wands have come up together repeatedly recently:

~ balanced ideas resonating ~ to intuitively lead the way naturally, higher energy octaves in need of direct feelingsense?

~ cycling points in motion ~ informing a court quadrangle with very specific energies?

~ a gift of resonant thought, ideas, as if on an initial plateau, an expansive foothills plateau to play on to embrace as a precursor to me expanding forward ~ without explanation or reason other than staying energetically on track in a (natural inner leader) Queen of Wands way?

~ less primrosed pathed 4 of Swords ~ Queen of Wands interps such as note the energetic foundation present very simply and clearly?

~ another LESS primrosed path?  Is that really less primrosed, or simply fear/expectation/blind-spots presenting to stifle the verdant vibrancy of forward movement?  Expectations presenting as being stuck, or wrestle-breaking out of chains inspirationally.  And, I ask you not to do that simply because I asked.  Eff respect for what I say.  Maybe what I say has zippo bearing on your reading-sense.

The resonance of the same card repeating for me becomes a motivating metronome, a strobing of multiple meanings divining towards a message of tuning the idea or concept I am working on where identity is pulsing itself to clarity through working it . . . expresses a centering device to embrace it more deeply at speed, and in motion in real-time.  A warming up through action with the card(s) rather than to pause and contemplate.  One of the repetitive card messages is to cycle up across the board kaleidoscopically without confusion, experience the vibrancy, through my actions rather than digressing to pause and take notes.

Repeating cards feel to be a call to interpret things in motion, in a way expressing, “Come hither, Heathcliff / Heather.”

“Digressing” to taking notes is cool by me when coming in for a pitstop so to speak.  And as well, when cards come up multiple times in a row, they seem to be signaling me to be informed of the successive heartbeats IN and OF my actions to inform and tune and tailor my further actions. They seem to be a hint that a vein of gold has been struck, and to explore it actively.

What are your thoughts on repeating cards?

Chinese New Year


I have taken a few “Chinese New Year” related photos during recent strolls. At this time of year noisy firecrackers are set off to chase away bad spirits (leaving the pavements covered in red paper). Shrines get fresh floral garlands, and food offerings are often set out in front of Chinese businesses. Also, many people tie a bunch of flowers (usually orchids) onto the front of their car, and shop fronts get decorated with Chinese figures, lanterns, and red paper.

For those wishing to view dragons – please see my 14 Dec posting “Walking with Dragons”. Just to tempt you I have inserted one of them below.

Wild Things 82

I have really been enjoying this photo journey, and thought you might, too!


This is the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, the Year of the Dragon, so I wish my reader(s) “Gong Xi Fa Cai”. I think that my lizards look a bit like small dragons.

There are lots of wild flowers to be seen at present, and I had a problem deciding which flowers to include here. I often find the insects enjoying their breakfasts. This morning both a jumping spider and a praying mantis were eating when I arrived with my camera.
