Tarot Tarot. Full Frontal Friday Tarot Time In Mystereum

Tarot Tarot. Full Frontal Friday Tarot Time In Mystereum

It’s Full Frontal Friday in The Land of Mystereum!  What happens when cards have a head-on collision, or you have a whiz-bang POW kind of short thought where it’s all right in there? Is it total destruction?  . . . that has the potential to catalyze you with its explosive energy and inspire another new thing altogether?

Make Invigorating Mind Movies With Your Cards & Thoughts

Think about the movie The 300.  There is the early scene about King Leonitas and the wolf and the winter cold.  Leonitas slowly and steadily backs into a crack of a cave, and as the wolf charges BAM he zap-plunges his staff . . . and arrives back to Sparta heralding his Self-leadership proving himself as the new king in a new fur coat certainly not bought at Macy’s with his allowance, begotten by his bold and courageous focused action. And, in the end, the Battle of Thermopylae, Leonitas revisits that one act from early in his life with the wolf and the winter cold.  The wolf and the winter cold functions as his whole strategy against Xerxes’ wolf of a much larger army as Leonitas dispatches most of his army home to remain with 300 of his men in one of the most famous last stands ever.  The seed of his early experience with the wolf and the winter cold evolves into his method of organizing his whole scene, and a whole army.  Is this not like cards coming together in an imaginatively actionable way?  One small, though potently memorable scene from before becomes a fully developed and orchestrated plan for King Leonitas in the Pass at Thermopylae. . . Plus, there’s an amazing love scene between King Leonitas and Queen Gorgo. Actually, it’s better than that. It’s a full frontal bold YEAH kind of scene. SPICY BayBEEEEE!  SPICY SCENE!!

Downshift Into The Turn. Rocket Yourself As You Stick Through It With Presence

Let’s get Full Frontal Friday Tarot serious here and layer in a tongue-in-cheek video.  Sorry, no war here, just a sneaky Newsman.  You’ll NEVER guess what he got into the news.  WOW, Tarot?  Oh YEAH!!

Notice how The Newsman looks around before saying “Tarot.”  GO NEWSMAN!!

Full Frontal Friday Flank The Chariot with these cards

Experience The Ace of Swords’ in its full frontal telling of its creation story directly from its perspective.

  • What subtlety of a Mind Movie kind of Scene-Statement brings a higher octave, higher octane evolution-fuel to ALL of your actions?
  • How is Tarot a portal to YOUR amazing 4-letter words out in the open?  Poetry?
  • STILL can’t believe he snuck that in there, and all in under a minute. He should get an award! GO NEWSMAN!!

Full Frontal Tarot Friday ideas!

  • The Chariot as an Audi R8 turtle ~ a high performance Knight carrying all he needs, a high performance tortoise secure in his high performance Chariot shell performing like a finely tuned hare!
  • “Intention is over-rated.  It is simply far more important the way something comes across.” (c)1993 Jordan Hoggard
  • All of your integrity and responsibility is present in that last statement huh?!! ~ No need to talk about integrity and responsibility is there if it is truly all present and infused into your actions.  People will feel their magnetic orbits around you.  All of your good and gritty gear-head tuning will show up clean and polished and VROOMMMMing in your actions as they naturally come across through the road-trip-track of the journey of your life when . . . it’s important the way it comes across works for YOU in YOUR way!

Does Full Frontal Friday Tarot Birth An Evolution For You?

Does Full Frontal Friday Tarot birth an evolution for you of a higher octave and very effectively iterated new version of how one of your ideas comes across?  Does it make something else entirely?  Can you apply that throughout your process today like a Hawaiian shirt for a day just for fun to see if it does?

Here’s A Full Frontal Friday Tarot Question For You

How does your presence in actions go well beyond your spoken words?

Tarot. Mystereum. The Presence of Strength + Bonus Exercise

Tarot. Mystereum. The Presence of Strength + Bonus Exercise

Throughout Tarot in the Land of Mystereum Major Arcana cards make cameo appearances in other cards to help connect you with the Tarot story.

They cameo visually in many places throughout the deck, and add layers of exploration throughout the 192-page Imagination Primer companion book.  Major Arcana characters cameo in both other Majors and as well in Minors.  This Presence-of cameo feature integral to The Land of Mystereum’s Fabric is to lifefully add to and inform Tarot character development through the tools of visual story and allusion ~ allusion being a function of those coolio and quick criss-cross-applesauce connections that are made or you make that enhance the nature of relationships between things . . . make more friends and companions of things rather than pointing “over there” in regard to them, like the Narrator says by action, “you GOTTA meet so-n-so!”  I also felt that this multiple-cards-in-a-card visual allusion story technique furthers the Mystereum Tarot deck in a way so The Minors . . . though they can keep the integrity of their Everyday aspects . . . so that the Minors were not minimized.


that in Mystereum every Minor has at least one person or figure in it.  You beg to differ saying, “Oh but this card and that card only have a scene or even simply geometry. Jordan.”  Yes, they do, and they have you peering through the portal of the border.  Don’t you tend to step in through that portal, as it’s your reading, right? So, that makes 1.  Every card has at least one additional spectator or performer.  You!  Pretty good stuff in Mystereum.  Pretty good stuff like Harold or Milo or Alice or Harry but better. It’s better ’cause YOU’re there with a constant invitation, though.  A constant invitation to step in through the border and participate and / or watch and read the Tarot Mind Movie playing in your reading from your personal best seat!  How do you play with YOUR cards?  How do you watch your Tarot Mind Movies.  Are you a wallflower?  Are you a sunflower?  A bit of each depending?  Do you like to pause and research?  Do you like to sight-read the track at speed for time? Either way and neither other ways, Good for You!

This visual expression of the cards in Presence-of cameos

as cards themselves journey around through The Land of Mystereum is at the heart of the very structure of Mystereum, it’s Fabric.  We could call this opening up the epistemology of card divination, epistemology being philosophy of the study of how we know things.  We could call the card cameo appearances a Tarot etymology that expresses snapshots of the origins, the lineage of each card’s archetypal and divination personality in their ongoing and living births to be developed through their appearances in the Empress-style Yoniverse of your readings.  Interestingly enough, we can also simply say, . . .

Can You pick a face out of a crowd? Or, a hand?

“Cards in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum inform one another.”  Cards in the Land of Mystereum literally inform one another in the visual story of the cards where they appear.  They don’t start doing this after you learn them. They already do this,, and more-so start doing this after you meet them.  Be inquisitive.  Notice them in a “what’s that?” way, can pick their “face” out of a crowd so to speak, or a hand?  Takes a little doing of course, yet play it like a movie . . . “Who’s that? What is THAT thing or person doing here? Wait, is that so-n-so’s hand?”

Have some fun opening up and exploring this cameo appearance

Presence-Of feature in The Land of Mystereum.  It is there to assist you in card inter-relationships and to actively work with your intuition.  It is also present to further inform the Imagination Tools gifted by each character in the Imagination Primer book.  Pick a Major Arcana character in your Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck.  Then, one by one, go through your deck.  See what full portions of the card and what out-takes or detail vignettes appear in other cards.  Once you have walked through your deck and pulled a card’s hangouts, the Presence-Of places of the card you have chosen, ask yourself . . .”How does this card contribute with its appearance in this other card?  What clue to this card’s identity does the guest appearance accentuate?  How does it flesh out the card’s story?  Are these cards the same yet simply at different scales?  Siblings?  Friends?  Tenuously connected?  Dreaming or imagining in hmmmmms?  For example in the Imagination Primer the 3 of Swords expresses that it has never seen a Tower though has heard that one is formed when lots of unresolved 3-of-Swords moments get together.  Something beyond its current grasp is formed when this occurs.

So, on to the Tarot Presence-Of Strength Cameos

Strength plays 10 visual storytelling parts in The Land of Mystereum , appears in 10 cards.  There is the Strength card of course as XI, and as well XV The Devil, XX Judgment, XXI The World, 4 of Wands, Page of Wands, 2 of Cups, 4 of Cups, and 6 of Cups.  It felt very natural for Strength to appear in this way as a perennial story-thread of card characters that further alludes to and contributes personality to the sense of place throughout these 9 cards in The Land of Mystereum.

Why doesn’t Strength appear more or less?

Well, maybe She + her He-Lion really does, and then again there are 9 appearances which 9’s mirror express more components of her natural fluency with her inner animal voice.  This Mystereum visual character dictionary of storied appearances reaches out to symbolically spice up the deck in many places, like this 9-charactered stage in Strength’s play.  Mystereum is not a deck of card soliloquies or monologues in a play, but expert skill in play IN a (theatrical) play.  The whole deck is inter-related both in visual and spoken story, and each card embraces their identity as well. The Land of Mystereum is really a land, a place of divination in community with itself within and about where “All Similar, Each Unique.”  Strength plays 9 gig, 9 sets in the 78 one-act Tarot plays in Mystereum.

9 Strength Cameos

1. XI Strength

Strength appears of course as Strength ~ indicates a natural fluency, not control, a natural fluency with one’s inner animal voice.  She is beyond taming the beast.  Her animal is integral to the personality of her voice.


2. XI Strength cameos in XV The Devil

  • anima and animus, she-and-he-inner-spirit appear to temper ego. She’s on the left offering grapes.  She is one of two in control here, wielding fluency.  The Devil is not in control.  She-and-He-spirits are.  They can be imps themselves and play with earthly desires.  They also embrace their passions fully.

3. XI Strength appearing in XX Judgment

  • as the woman with offering-up-receiving hands on the right.  Who is the guy on the left?  And, that kiddo or midget on the left?  Does that kiddo character appear in the 5 of Wands?  We’ll have to see sometime in another Presence-of cameo article.
  • appearing here, she can be representative of the power of a naturally conscious voice, the feminine receptivity to Judgment’s awakening or rebirth or resurrection or epiphany.
  • Refer to XV The Devil, and in XX Judgment she is on the right now uplifting newness, the resurrection of the perennial in a naturalized garden.

4. XI Strength cameos in XXI The World

  • Look closely up towards the top.  One of the hands gracing the infinity of The World is Strength’s.
  • This is a subtle cameo as she lends the natural voice of her living touch to The World.
  • Strength reaches in to focus the natural clarity of The World’s infinite and infinitely dancing relationships.

XI Strength cameos in the 4 of Wands

  • She peeks in from the (unconscious) left to freshen the established energies that are placed on the right as her energies pass into the presence of the magical Wand-orb centered at the base of the card.
  • A visual HeLLO bringing new surprises to enhance the already established energies.  She’s the one who brings those amazing pastries.

XI Strength cameos in the Page of Wands

  • She brings fresh energies to speak to Your Royal Court.
  • She’s up there at the tip of the Wand on the right.  Well, half in, half out like The Hierophant on the left.

XI Strength cameos in the 2 of Cups

  • She’s on the right ~ conscious.
  • Her inner-outer voice complete, playful in its natural fulfillment of giving and receiving at one and the same time.
  • Her outer, His inner.  She’s on the right ~ conscious.  He’s on the left ~ unconscious.

XI Strength cameos in the 4 of Cups

  • She presents the earthly treasure of room-for-another that emanates from the volcano, the volcano itself a Yoniverse of the earth.  WAIT!  Are there more than one?  Volcanoes? Yes.  Earthly Yoniverses emanating?  Would seem so.  What do you think?  The whole world feels to be a living and birthing thing.  Babies.  Geysers.  Volcanoes.  Chrysalis-Cracking them all, huh?
  • Emanate Wet. Flap. Dry. Fly. Evolve.  Repeat
  • Do your feelings fly as high as the depth from which they come?
  • Are the heights of your feelings rooted in your greatest depths?

XI Strength cameos in the 6 of Cups

  • to further expand established feelings heralded in the sky, you exchange with filling voices.  Welling.
  • Isn’t this YOUR Cup seen up close in the forefront?  Are you extending in a toast?

Best to your own alchemical team 

supporting your Self in Your Royal Court of Higher Self filling the seats of Your Court to cheer on your expert skill expressed in play!  Consider these characters to already have season tickets to cheer on your strong play.  There are no cheap-seats in your game of life.  Play well.  Play with the vibrant motions established by Strength and her 8 closest friends. Here is expressed quite a band of allies for your journeys within and about.  Play with the vibrant strength of their inner motion YOUR WAY!  Strength may also be a symbol of your inner light that both reflects and is also unmoved by outside influences . . . like the lion laying restfully near, and there’s your next Birth Card Pair, the 2’s Tarot Birth Cards ~ Twos To Pair. Want a little more in depth 2’s talk? Check out Twos: Birth-Placing Clarity.

Check out previous Presence Of articles to discover more about the coordinated dynamism present to support and further inform your journey throughout 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 to round out your inner team’s work.  Who knew?  Drawing pretty pictures is the smallest part of my job, or is it?  And, the more you know, the more you enhance informing your intuition, the more you dance with coordination and the coordinated aspects in a scene.  If you’ve ever learned to drive a standard transmission car . . . and how are you with it now?  What about an automatic?  How are you with it now?  Similar to intuition I say, similar to Mystereum.  At first there are a lot of things to keep track of, and then you simply drive.  Strength’s energetic natural voice synchromeshing things, and Strength AS the core of confidence. They are both tangibly visual metaphors of the unseen and unmoved mover.

Explore your Talented Inner Inheritances With Strength

as you develop your natural voice into an ability.  Talents are innate, abilities developed.  They are also both whole worlds that can exist in the tiniest of things and the smallest of places . . . like the infinity inside you.  Find yours with Mystereum!  The world needs your voice in just the way it is natural for you to use it for your highest good.

Here’s Your BONUS Free Exercise

Need a vacation?  Wanna know how to make work into hooky at least until you can get one? Or, wanna spice up work and possibly even have the fall-out of more vibrant performance?

  • Pick two cards, any two cards.
  • Take them to work with you each day for a week, and keep the secret all your own.  No-one needs to know you brought your two giggling and irreverent friends from your morning coffee meetup with you.
  • Before you say anything that day, think what each card would say like they are speaking inner crib notes to you.  Then, say what YOU say.
  • You’ll create many pregnant pauses . . . and the uncomfortable ones around you might tend to just bluster-blow-up and frustratedly answer their own questions as they stomp off to their next dump-victim.
  • You may bring some vacay brightness to work that actually enhances your focus.
  • And, once you aren’t dealing with Bluster Bopy Gossip Girl above, this brightness may dance your interactions and presentations up another octave.
  • Give it a try.  It’s your responsibility, though.  I don’t blame Irma when I burn the pancakes. Forget indemnity.  Express YOUR inner inheritance talents of a natural fluency of your inner voice by developing it into an ability!

Till Next time!  Happy Thursday!

Wednesday Tarot Treasure Mid-Week Warm-Up

Wednesday Tarot Treasure Mid-Week Warm-Up

Following up on Monday’s Mystereum Tarot Mayhem blog, Wednesdays are for a mid-week mini-workshop for warming up when you are already into your week. Nothing to sign up for or schedule.  I simply provide you with a 5-card exercise to warm up your humor juices at speed in your week. Wednesday as hump day?  Neh, Wednesdays are for the higher octave of laughter, so life won’t be a string of Thursdays, or Sisyphus Wednesdays.  It’s hard to be too in your head when you’re laughing.

So, here is a great technique for showing yourself your own healthy, integrated, preventative armor that requires no maintenance. Humor AS a warm-up reading exercise:

  • to use humor to warm up prior to your readings
  • to get surfing on your celestial groove with humor.  Humor’s shinier than steel.
  • great exercise if you have a hard time saying “no” as a way to get past the silent and unsaid “no” by higher octaving your ability to say no FULLY to someone or something by stepping PAST your first reaction to get to a 1st and more evolved response with humor . . . as I feel that responding to things that getcha with humor often blooms gifts that were about to be missed.  Laughter is the shortest distance between people. ~ Victor Borge
  • Warming up is good for your muscles before exercise.  Warm up for your readings.  You don’t want to pull a psychic muscle or feel the Rx of not being warmed up fully. Let your smiles and laughter fill up and flesh out your tanks.
  • to directly experience how humor can be fun and very healthy, and even experience the health of being able to smilingly say, “I don’t believe you” as easily as The Queen of Swords does.
  • to use humor to find your own natural leadership like the Queens have.  They are certainly not bores, huh?

What do you see in a tree?

So, if you are similar to me and a lot of other Tarot readers, sometimes we see and read things in simple images, in a tree, in a group of people.  Well, when I made up this technique I felt what the heck, I woke up on the bright side today. . . Why not read the 1st 5 spams in my spam email folder?  They’re free.  I am pretty sure they will be there.  And, if this gives get me the opportunity to more earnestly search for buried treasure and misplaced emails in my spam folder.  Heck that crapola from Nigeria that occasionally shows up . . . Why not read the 1st 5 things I see when I open my Spam folder?  And, this technique was born!  I am doing this each Monday and Wednesday, so sign up and follow along . . . share, Tweet, and fly back around for some (hopefully) laughs.

Laughs are like geodes.  They open you up to the treasure of your Inner Inheritances.

Reading Spam Email As Warm-up With Humor.  Treasure buried in your spam? Sure!

I know from years of physical training that warming up and practice can often be taken way too seriously while one is doing it, and then you’re already tired of serious when it’s time to get serious.  Sometimes making too much of the same bores the dickens out of the expansion of warming up. When, simply turning up the music and naturally doing your activity casually safely warms up your suspension be it physical or psychic.

Do you get all serious when you throw a frisbee or watch a kite flying, or watch the waves at the beach?  Not many people will stare at a tennis court, though even non-surfers will watch the waves.  Even if you do, isn’t your staring a seriousness expanding at the level of a Magician’s full-on focus?  Magic?  Leads to expert skill in play, I say.

A Wednesday Warm-Up? A Scenic Overlook Segue In Your Week With Spam

Consider this a restful scenic overlook on the trip of your week, a place to laugh.  It’s a great place to stretch before getting back in there to ride out your week strongly.  Read the 1st 5 spams in your spam email folder.  You don’t need to actually read them, as opening them is sometimes not so safe, and certainly don’t click anything in there if you do.

Use the spam title as your inquiry topic, and the snippet of the first several words you see on the spam email subject line AS your inquiry.  Simple.  Title as card inquiry topic. Subject line AS your inquiry.  From my perspective I was probably going to say NO flat out if I even spent the time in the first place before clicking the flush of Delete.  I have new clients all the time, though, so a focused scan in my Spam before it’s trashola is a daily task.  So, I was already going to say “no”, and Tarot is probably not going to change my mind about spam email merit, BUT it can certainly flesh out some good laughs to prime the pumper before I happily and dramatically click DELETE TRASHOLA FOREVER, and OH YES I am really sure, with a grin on my face that washes them away in the next moment forever often cracking open the geode of treasure in the next thing I do..

Take the time to make laughter

Laughter sets a break or segue from whatever you were doing before like jumping around and shaking being all silly for no reason other than . . . to leave that previous moment or activity’s influence and really start fresh into your next activity.

Here’s your Mid-Week Tarot Warm-Up! Stretch, & then get back on it fresh! 

My reading of the 1st five spam emails that were in my spam folder this morning.

  • Use your own spams or the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this as a warm-up exercise
  • Use the Spam FROM or title as the topic of your inquiry
  • Use the Subject Line snippet AS your inquiry
  • Draw a card for each, and let the humor rip!
  • This is a great way to explore the natural leadership present in the Queens that is present in YOU.  Discover the Inner Inheritances of yourself as geode with your imagination.  No need to crack yourself open. Pump up your humor to discover and amp and prime your celestial groove more vibrantly!

5-Card Warm-Up Exercise.  Spam to Geode to HUMOR TREASURE!

Spam Card 1 ~ Solar Savings America. Save money from one day with solar.

XV The Devil

  • The Devil indicates earthly desires rising in you. Mind that such feelings are nothing to fear, be ashamed of, or avoid so long as you are compassionate with yourself. Inhibitions can enslave as easily as excesses. It is indicated that your expectations can be blind spots OR magical and invisible connections between things. It is also indicated to be mindful of your intensities. Your tethers are loose at this time. Don’t let your intensities take you by surprise as you use the greater mobility. Earthly desires can light you up and inspire you and make you feel great! Unrequited anything may be hurtful. Abolish your toxins of fear and you may very well feel the purity of your desires. Ambitions you have may be frightening and dangerous, but feel how they can be less frightening and dangerous than the subtle decay present if your hands are idle. This is a strong time to start learning how it feels to be honest and alive inside and out!
  • So, to get the earthly desire goody out of this I only have to use it for one day?
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = I think the heat of The Devil might be more fun to play with than this solar saving hoopy.  My inquiry was wrong.  I much prefer the card instead.  THANKS!  ‘m glad I asked the wrong question!

Spam Card 2 ~ Belly Fat Free. 4 foods that kill fat and 7 food chemicals that cause it.

Knight of Pentacles

  • The Knight of Pentacles indicates bringing earthbound goals into being. Here is your place of consistently and steadily applying your highest aspects and working diligently and full-on feeling your task AS the meaning. Being very present with your actions at this time. Reasons may go wonderfully missing while you are getting things done. Have a spirited and active ball with your mundane, every day devotions!
  • So, I have to be honest that I first read “my inquiry topic” as Jelly Fat Free.  Like fat free jelly, and thought *where’s the fun in THAT?!!* 4 food that kill fat?? Well, my Knight of Pentacles knows my lipid quantities are probably all the same, though they may swell and shrink?  This Knight is not afraid to keep on moving without any other reason than he does.  The 7 food chemicals that cause it? More of this crap?  WhatEV.  I tend to know where my food comes from, so . . . it’s still food instead of wondering what percentage of my food is food and what percentage of my food is not food.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = Velveeta says “Food Product” I think.  Well, if you have to tell me that  . . .  though, it DOES make GREAT queso!  Thanks for focusing me on my belly.  Now where are those chips to full-on spoon this queso IN MA BELLY?!!

Spam Card 3 ~ Timeshare Resorts.  Curious about your options to sell your Timeshare?

Ace of Wands

  • The Ace of Wands indicates new life and making place. Setting a sacred staff or blessing your home with a ritual, say a sage ritual, can also be indicated in re-making place where you already are. Clear so you provide the strong new energies a more prominent home. There is also courage in the act of placement, the creativity in the placement itself, and the enthusiastic energy you create and bring in to in newly made places. Celebrate your flow as you increase the power of its force!
  • So, it is indicated since I don’t own real estate, maybe I will do well to look into it.  OH, I had a coaching session yesterday, and lo and behold . . . I still don’t own property, though I am planning to sooner than I know.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = What’s up with this Timeshare BS?!!  How did I get on this list?!!  OH!  A whole reSORT?!!  Csn the Ace of Wands introduce me to his Empress and Emperor who hires him to make place?

Spam Card 4 ~ Mary.  The video about mind control trick to use some girl.

7 of Swords

  • The 7 of Swords indicates sneaky & devious & sly & stealthy most probably hiding right in plain sight. Also indicated is to look at things differently, pause, and outwardly expand through blind spots that you are letting actively deceive you! Mirror them and play along. Hide in plain sight, too, as you begin to move through them! It is indicated that you are not as exposed as you feel.
  • So, actually the trick is on me if I click.  Some girl is waiting with her index finger on the mouse to BAMMMM click if I do.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = Your evil sneaky plan did not work on me Spam Author Person.  MWAH HAHAHAHAHAHA

Spam Card 5 ~ Trade Magazines (2). iPhone Survival Kit.

XVII The Star

  • The Star indicates continually finding your cosmic groove and going for it! Eternal hope in the diamond-like seat of your mind-body-beautiful is indicated to be sparkling brightly! The Star card indicates the immutable and vibrant presence of your memories, your hope, and your knowledge. The Star encourages you to shift your focus and re-direct your scale without moving the gaze upon your focus. Even the smallest star provides a glimmer of hope. This is a bright time for feeling your possibilities expanding!
  • Wow, I thought an Everest Survival Kit was a necessity.  Glad I saw this today, though, before I went out and bought it.  I really need to learn how to survive that iPhone before I hit Everest.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = ??? I don’t have an iPhone!  How did you trick me into reading this card as if I did??!!!  The Star.  Maybe iPhone wants to offer me corporate sponsorship.  I promise I will wear your T-shirt every time I write this blog to keep me warm so I survive.

Enjoy playing With Your Spam.  You may CREATE some Geodes!

the Forgetting Is For Getting Laughter Warm-up technique from the mini-workshop presented here! 

Magical Blessings to this technique further opening up you up to your celestial groove so you powerfully bring more YOU to the table as enliven your Tarot readings in just your way!

Mystereum Tuesday Tarot Taring Triggers

Mystereum Tuesday Tarot Taring Triggers

Tarot in the Land of Mystereum provides Imagination Tools, one at least from each card, many gift you several after their character speaks in the 192-page Imagination Primer deck companion book.  These Imagination Tools have been described as psychic triggers ~ psychic triggers as catalysts for imaginative ideation with the feelingsense of Mystereum card characters to assist you to gain further clarity into your situation through your Tarot inquiry through The Land of Mystereum.

So, today let’s play a short Imagination Tool game I call Tuesday Taring the Scale. It is simple.  It is a technique to keep in your back pocket for those interesting times when a couple or more cards synchromesh into the leading edge of a single card. I don’t suggest forcing the technique on a reading. Though, it certainly comes in handy at those times when a reading feels like reducing the simplest of fractions and two cards magically mix like one of them becomes the heartbeat of the other ~ such as when you arrive at the fraction 4/1 and it reduces to 4, or 2/4 reduces to 1/2 or 0.5.

Imagine Psychic Triggers Called Imagination Tools

This technique came to mind when I pulled a couple of cards yesterday evening, AND these two cards were also wisely spoken to by a Samurai warrior woman Tomoe Gozen in the series Riverworld that I had just begun trying out.  Honestly she was more like a sexy Kunoichi (female Ninja pronounced ku – no – ichi, ku no- eKuy) or strong Southern woman as she kept her lineage hidden for a great while ~ or like any of you Girruls who’ve got your act together YOUR WAY — until with a slight and wry grin she responded to a scrambling and panic’d question calmly saying, “Too many questions obscure the path.  Never allow the delusion of self doubt to cloud your vision.”  Her first statement off the bat AFTER she outs herself as a warrior and not play the the light saffron robed nun anymore is “I am Tomoe Gozen! Swordswoman of the Minamoto Clan! Champion, consort, and War-Captain to Kisoe Yoshinaka! I bow to no man!” She’s HAWT!  Both personlities seamlessly synchromesh in her character like the 6 of Cups can heartbeat into the Ace of Cups.

From my perspective one most often makes realizations

of these kinds at this level during heated battle where intense urgency is present, when under deadline on a project, or in a Calgon Take Me Away Moment in an essential oil bath or in a massage therapy session . . . though I have to admit that at the massage session, I FINALLY stopped working and describing.  My massage therapist is thankful I don’t parry-dance with her anymore unconsciously matching her every move which defeats the point, and my body is even more thankful, or less.  However it works so that the massage has greater effects.  Lol.

The cards for today’s Tuesday Taring the Scale 

are the 6 of Cups and the Ace of Cups in that order.  When I pulled the 6 of Cups there was a clean exchange feeling cascading forward, one of those “this feels clear enough and wise enough in itself that let’s pull another card for this one to disappear in to.”  Ever had that feeling?

When I pulled the Ace of Cups the Taring the Scale exercise immediately set into full boat play, which is interesting as it’s full boat play is like a simple fraction. It reduces and is DONE!  Operation complete in a single stroke.  Like the poetic verse of an iaido quick-draw minus the blood-wiping part.  Though this was more a very fresh-gurgling-stream-discovered kind of Water-y and not so (wipe the throat-usurping blood off in a movie) Blade-y.

6 of Cups Taring the Scale to become the heartbeat of the Ace of Cups

. . . and the statement that I instantly read was, “an epic exchange banes well for a fresh start midstream.  Enjoy your 2nd wind!”  This goes ROCKIN’ly WELL with Tomoe Gozen’s “Too many questions obscure the path.  Never allow the delusion of self doubt to cloud your vision.”

That was quick. Miss it? Scrolling back and downshifting to frame by frame

Though too much explanation can cloud the path just as much as too many questions, and that’s often simply how I roll ~ always complete, never finished, worlds in an instant ~ all similar, each unique. From in between the frames here are your Imagination Tools for today’s cards:

6 of Cups ~ Imagination Tool ~ We gift you a tool of a balanced and refreshed place to explore and exchange portions of your ideas.  Remember the weightlessness of your ideas and tools.  You can fill and exchange a lot here with just the right amount of effort.

Ace of Cups ~ Imagination Tool ~ I gift you bright eyes to trust and flow through your ideas. Bright eyes and wide, ear to ear grins. They present fresh things that rejuvenate things you already have. You may already know this.  Imagination Tool ~ Smile when you feel fresh ideas at play in your imagination.  Begin to express them.

And when I express the synchromesh of the dovetail of my Taring the Scale expressions this way they feel to become

And, the poetic synchromesh of the Tared Scale from Imagination Tool triggers

An epic and fulfilling exchange banes well for a fresh start midstream.

As both container and contained, the cup and the water self-same, enjoy your 2nd wind from this and after!

Too many questions obscure the path.

Never allow the delusion of self doubt to cloud your vision.

An epic and fulfilling exchange banes well for a fresh start midstream.  Enjoy your 2nd wind!


Thanks Tomoe Gozen!  And, thanks 6 of Cups and Ace of Cups!

 How do YOU feelingsense the 6 of Cups and Ace of Cups in your life?

Monday Tarot Mayhem

Monday Tarot Mayhem

So, if you are similar to me and a lot of other Tarot readers, sometimes we see and read things in simple images, in a tree, in a group of people.  Well, I thought, what the heck, it’s Monday and I woke up on the bright side.  So, enjoy this Tarot warm-up technique of reading 1st 5 spams in your spam email folder.  Heck, they’re free, and it’s a great way to loosen up, warm up, and get your juices flowing with a smile.  Then of course the ever important “D” word in marketing.  Delete.  Some things simply do not deserve your time anymore.

Think about it.  You are probably going to say NO! to most spams anyway, and I’d bet Tarot isn’t going to change your mind about that.  BUT, why not say a NO! with the higher octave of humor.  Humor is playing with the steps like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers which is beyond learning them.   Dance with your steps to warm up today.  Today’s Monday Tarot Mayhem spam email topics submitted by Karen from the UK.  Send your contributions to be included in future Monday Tarot Mayhem blogs.  You can simply place them in the comments here for consideration.  Only type the spam email title and the snippet of the body text you can see without opening the spam, when it is unread.

Reading Spam As Alchemy, Serendipity, a Warm-up Exercise?  Sure!

Don’t be afraid to toss the banana peel so to speak after you get all the free goody out of it. Today’s Monday Tarot Mayhem Spam emails titles and snippets are . . .

Card 1 ~ Move Her.  Do you move her with your mountain nightly?

The Knight of Wands

  • The Knight of Wands indicates pausing with too great an emphasis on spiritual matters and un-reflected actions. Being mindful of new and unfamiliar actions and feelings is also indicated. Visualize a house cracking not as hard to mend damage. . .see this as an awakening! Introspection and flux. Transition and healing. Feel renewal as you experience more spirit. Actively grow from your spiritual core rather than from the edges!
  • So, it is pretty much indicated to grow from your spiritual core to WHOLLY gettheheckOUTTA THERE!  Grab your partner and dosey DOH!  NOt much introspection and flux going on.  Awaken. RUN!!!
  • The Knock It Outa The Park NO! = I don’t know about you, but this sounds strangely dyslexic, like making what comes out the other side sound attractive.  Move her with your mountain?  Movement?  Mountain?  Big pile?  Maybe it’s just me, but does this sound like HazMat kink?  I guess this Knight suggests to moves on into the night by being Atlas and moving your mountain.  Do you have to break it from the ground at the bottom first?

Card 2 ~ Psychic Tarot.  10 minutes FREE!

9 of Wands

    • The 9 of Wands indicates that preparation is complete and there is a fitting pause of commencement. Sitting back and taking a deep breath looking into the distance with a smile, a wonderful feeling of contentedness is also indicated. This is an auspicious time to have a great get-together! Or nail that important presentation! You feel ready, one big breath before the first guests arrive. One big breath before you enter the room for your big presentation. . . Deliver enthusiastically and let your celebration begin!
    • So, is this like a BS version of hockey tickets from work? I thought I gave the minutes more than received. Hmmmm.
    • The Knock It Outa The Park NO! = Preparation is complete.  NO. My prep’s good. Go ahead. After you, please.

Card 3 ~ Vigray C1al15.  Love her through the Night

King of Pentacles

  • The King of Pentacles indicates being the Master Builder, a loves building concrete and psychic structures together. Things created and living of their own accord, standing the test of time, is indicated. Only things of quality need be considered at this time. Be filled with life in the directness of your every gesture. This is a fitting time of grand and exquisite strength and wit.
  • So, it’s pretty clear that something grandly and exquisitely fishy is up as this King is titling his email in easily discerned number substitution code.  Love her through the night with Viagra and Cialis?  Sounds like a trap.
  • The Knock It Outa The Park NO! = Please spell your words with letters, thank you! And, spell them properly, too.  Hard AND gray?  Not like there’s anything wrong with that, though . . . .

Card 4 ~ Nocturnal dreams.  Why sleep when partner still wants you?

2 of Wands

  • The 2 of Wands indicates warning of potential disaster by overload and imbalance. Look for your natural path. Do not become overwhelmed by perceiving many little things as one big thing. Being aware when you are daydreaming is also indicated. See though the mirages of your fixations. Listening, waiting, and being on the move clearly is indicated to pull you through this time where you may feel barraged.
  • So, I think I need to sleep . . . SOME time. I still can’t get over the feeling of “partner” in this query.  It sounds less and less like a PC way to say one’s significant other and more like a fling with a Western movie star on set.  I can hear John Wayne saying “Whya sleep whiiiinnnnaaa pardner stilll wantzzz Ya?”  Uh, no offense, but uh . .  let me think.  No.
  • The Knock It Outa The Park NO! = All those little glowing things swirling around your head?  They’re real.  Dreams are coming out to attack you and drag you in if you don’t at LEAST take a nap right now.  Either you rolled in a mountain of something or your delusions are like technicolor flies.

Card 5 ~ Bank of American. IMPORTANT account reactivation required

8 of Cups

  • The 8 of Cups indicates a freeze-framing in your midst. You may feel this as listlessness or lack of purpose. Move away from what no longer works to something new. The baby steps of new actions just poking through are also indicated. Let in the laughable of your current situation. Traveling to a new place, even if it is simply the park around the corner may help to clear things of their own accord. Feel free to pause your focus and deflate your troubled inertia as you move around in new surroundings!, even for a little bit.
  • So, DAYum right there’s a freeze-framing.  First off, banks tend to spell their own names correctly. Isn’t it Bank of American, or is someone somewhere else referring to all banks used by Americans? Secondly, I bank elsewhere.  I’ll pause my focus as I expand on the vertical plateau of my screen.  Select, DeLETE.  Ahhhhh.  Next.  Oops, that’s all folks.  This was Spam recognition Novice Level!
  • The Knock It Outa The Park NO! = The moral of the story I would like to take the time to express today is that even if YOUR bank emails you and it lands in Spam . . . don’t click.  Go to your bank site manually.  Banks have a habit of making sure their notifications go to the right places.  Let the endless plateau of spam be a clue for some guilt by association for emails.  It’ll break that click response and strengthen your mouse pointing skills. 🙂

Thanks for warming up your dance with today’s Monday Tarot Mayhem! Part of

the Mayhem today was a big ole interesting ????? .  I didn’t receive Spams much this morning.  That’s almost unbelievable. Still a little quizzled as that has NEVER happened.  Must have been some glitchy something somewhere.  Oh well, maybe I should make up a spare tire for Mondays.  Having to STOP depending on Spam sounds absurd, though maybe with keyword connectivity the trash-barnacles of spam retreated into their shells or blew away like trash.  I’d say hmmmm, though not worth the time.  Heck, if it’s a Big Bro gig, that’d be awesome having Big Bro staff taking out the trash each day.  So long as they don;t mistakenly pick any emails I valued. Lol

Higher octave your week with humor!  Discover the treasure of the gifts that arrive when you say NO! with GUSTO!  You’d be surprised at the table turner of humor.
