Tarot. Mystereum. The Presence of Temperance

The Presence of Temperance in The Land of Mystereum

Temperance plays 18 parts in The Land of Mystereum, 18 very specifically different roles.  This came about from Temperance’s magically alchemical mixing qualities that felt to resonate into the crucible creating these cards  It felt very natural to let the presence of Temperance naturalize throughout this many cards in The Land of Mystereum.  This is where my concept of Deceptive Simplicity and hiding in plain sight came through in Mystereum character development most evidently.  For, this many appearances are almost so big and so there one might miss them… or not.  It’s like Yellow Car Syndrome.  Don;t have a yellow car?  Then, there are probably none on the road.  Though, BUY a yellow car, and drive it off the lot.  On the way home you might see 50 of them.  They’ll be everywhere.  Things are easy once you learn them, much like things are easy to see once you’ve seen them, huh?

1. The XIV Temperance appearance.  Temperance of course appears first as itself.  Temperance is the Samekh Dance birthing the Quaternal Twin King Brothers. The Temperance female is a cameo of The High Priestess and the King-Maker in the light of day.  Samekh Dance?  What’s that you ask?  Start at her crown chakra where he touches her.  Move your eyes around the composition.  Curve through her to her touch of his throat, her touch tempering his voice. Then, continuing, his wide right arm gesture moving off the card on the right past consciousness to wrap around the unseen future and come back in to touch her crown chakra… with just that subtle, Samekh, pig-tail flourish of his finger.  And, there is a compositional Samekh (serif Samekh font version), or as I like to call it, The Samekh Dance of Temperance.  Why Samekh?  Samekh is often attributed to the Temperance card, and it felt resonant to bring it into as composition and structure that hide in plain sight.

2. The XV Devil appearance.  After coming together above and below in their Samekh Dance as one, the Temperance characters themselves do not cameo in the Devil, though coming before the Devil they direct the characters to square their circle and move to come together side by side as the yin and yang, the Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine either side of The Devil. This way the above and below are integrated with the earthly plane.  We could have some fun and say, Temperance went horizontal. Get a room.” This is a gesture to temper and evolve the Pan-goat ego so that earthly desires are seen and felt as natural intensities to be explored, experienced, developed, and resonated in and with. In this Devil card, the man and woman are both tethered by blood to his obelisk.  Though, from the Devil’s expression, they are acting together and clearly the leaders in the card.  The Devil may feel that they are in control. From their Temperance perspective, though, their role is more of an evolved form of control born of balanced masculine and feminine qualities which can be equated with self-leadership by being comfortable with one’s intensities and desires.  I find it important to say here that the Lover’s love what they love, period-end-of-story without apology, and that concept is embraced here without guilt as they are both contributing, giving back (over their shoulder). These two were directed by Temperance to cameo here and come together to interdependently individuate Temperance into The Devil. I mention the Lovers, though I’m not sure if these two characters are from the Lovers card.  The Lovers have a private face in their card.  They seem to either be real Picasso people or wearing Mardi Gras masks.  Their private life is theirs.  So, as the author, I can’t even tell you which two they are.  Well, that’s not really true.  It’s more-so that I have discretion, and that’s their business on their terms of their own accords together. 😉

3. The Knight of Wands appearance. Out of the darkness of the house, the egg, this Knight crack-hatches into the light.  The cracked and broken house is not hard-to-mend damage.  It is an energetic awakening.  Kundalini rising?  The energetic serpent emerging from the sacral egg.  Two things become one for these to occur and release higher octave energies such as an energetic Knight in Your Royal Court — as the Court Cards are called in The Land of Mystereum.

4 through 13. The High Priestess appearance.  Please visit the Presence of the Priestess blog in this Presence of series as she has 10 appearances throughout The Land of Mystereum.  With the mixing present in Temperance, this felt like a great place for a big, cross-linked overlap rather than on, big way-too-long article.  See those 10 cameos here and further explore how the families in The Land of Mystereum come together to create a whole surreal world in their archetypal and psychic home of the deck.

14. The 10 of Wands appearance. Strongly agile, energetic balance.  The Temperance of intensities in Cirque du Soleil level yoga.  A young King with wand-y cockatiel headfeathers up expressing interest, pouring one’s energies into a focus.  Notice the home between the day and the night.  Both are either side of the brain’s twilight community in the back of his head/top of spinal cord.  Notice this place.  It is composed of the cerebellum, medulla oblongata, pituitary gland, pons, and pineal gland.  This places this brain neighborhood at home AS the magical twilight between day and night, conscious and unconscious, where brain meets brain stem.  Call the dusk and dawn the magical twilight, the interstice, the Psychic Synapse of the space between, and this little brain neighborhood lives there in the card.  Putting the 10 of Wands here after the Knight of Wands does beg a question: Does this higher octave level of body temperance achieved in the mindbodybeautiful of the 10 of Wands bring one to a potential awakening in the knight of Wands?  With the concept of the Temple In Man and the Temple of Man and intense martial arts training, my perspective on that is “Definitely, Yes.”

The Quaternal Twin Kings

15. The King of Wands appearance.  The 10 of Wands grew in to the Knight of Wands, and the Knight of Wands grew up.  He is now the King., one of the four Quaternal Twin Brother Kings.  Note the Queen of Pentacles at his gravitational core in his mind. His heritage is strong.  His magical twilight brain neighborhood is as bright as ever.

16. The King of Cups appearance.  The King of Cups, besides being composed of the characters from Temperance, resonates differently than the other Kings.  The Queen of Cups emanates from his biceps, from the nourishing support of his actions.  His emotions infuse his every move which births life at every turn.  He understands all too well that the wisdom of the ages naturally lives in well-expressed emotions.  He’s intense, though has more of a “mellow, not melodrama” way about him. His heritage is fluid and fully integrated. His magical twilight brain neighborhood is as bright as ever.

17. The King of Pentacles appearance.   The Master Builder of the group.  He has fully integrated architecture within and about.  Sound limiting?  Doesn’t sound like Temperance?  Well, personally, as an Architect, drawing pretty pictures is the smallest part of my job.  I won’t play the expertise resume game required daily to do my job.  I’ll put it vastly more simply to see if this opens something up for you.  Architecture is composed of the Greek roots or arche (arkay) and techne (teknay).  Arche is the creating, is the original idea, the first-spark of inspiration, and it is formless.  Arche would then be “inception.”  Techne is the making and putting together of the idea in form, giving form to the formless.  Techne would then be “conception.”  Architecture is a both~and wholeness rather than an either/or proposition.  The King of Pentacles might live by these two quotes.  “Architectural design consists of an ounce of inspiration and many tons of logical argument.”  And, he solidly knows the ins and out of process as he is fully aware that, “The 1st 95% of a project takes the first 95% of the time.  The last 5%?  Well, it takes the other 95% of the time.”  Note the Queen of Pentacles at his gravitational core in his mind. His heritage is strong.  His magical twilight brain neighborhood is as bright as ever.

18. The King of Swords appearance.  The Ultimate Communicator of the group.  He fully and empathically integrates into his surroundings.  His words and expressions are evident, clear, and sharp… right to the point in the big picture.  And, his words and expressions, his sword, mostly always go outside the accepted borders as he is always after the natural thought and not the accepted way of thinking.  I would call this King the Ninja-Samurai as he seamlessly blends in with his regal and formal uniform being that of Nature itself, the perfect foundation to support clear expressions.  This King is fully aware that his presence is felt way beyond his spoken words.  He understand the tip of the finger pointing while at the same time may look at a different moon than the one pointed to. Notice that his magical twilight brain neighborhood is goldenly distributed through him to activate his crown chakra and as well to live and surf on the crests of his actions to enliven them further with natural intent in his will.

Tarot Wednesday. Mid-Week Warm-Up Scenic Overlook Stretch

Tarot Wednesday. Mid-Week Warm-Up Scenic Overlook Stretch

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.  Simply a 5-card exercise to warm up at speed in your week over the Wednesday hump with the higher octave of laughter.  Hard to be too in your head when you’re laughing. A great technique for showing people the healthy, integrated, preventive armor that requires no maintenance. Humor:

  • how to use humor to warm up for your day of readings
  • how to get surfing on your celestial groove with humor.  Humor’s shinier than steel.
  • great is you have a hard time saying “no.” A way to get past the silent and unsaid “no” by higher octaving the ability to say no FULLY to someone or something by stepping PAST your first reaction to get to a 1st 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.  You don’t want to pull a psychic muscle or feel the Rx of not being warmed up fully.
  • how it can be fun and very healthy to say, “I don’t believe you” as easily as The Queen of Swords would.
  • with humor you may find your own natural leadership like the Queens have.  They are certainly not bores.

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, I thought, what the heck, I woke up on the bright side today.  Why not read the 1st 5 spams in my spam email folder.  Heck, they’re free.  And, if this doesn’t get you to search for buried treasure in your spam folder that isn’t from Nigeria, why not read the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this?

Spam Email As Alchemy.  Treasure buried in your spam folder? 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 you get to serious.  Sometimes making too much of the same which bores the dickens out of the expansion when really focusing on your activity whatever it is.  Do you get all serious when you throw a frisbee or watch a kite flying?  Even if you do, isn’t it a seriousness that is more of a Magician’s full-on focus that is magical?  Expert skill in play I say.

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

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 the card topic, and the snippet of the first several words you see on the spam email list where you see the title.  Simple.  Title as card topic. Snippet text as inquiry.  From my perspective I was probably going to say no to them if I even spent the time in the first place.  I have new clients all the time, though, so a focused scan before trashola is a daily task.  So, I was going to say “no” and Tarot’s probably not going to change my mind about spam email merit, though 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.

Taking the time to make 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 to explore the natural leadership present in the Queens that is present in you and to pump up your humor and prime your celestial groove.

Spam Card 1 ~ Bryant & Stratton College.  How long does it take to earn an online degree?

VI The Lovers

  • The Lovers indicate vibrant joineries embedded in a mutual harmony. Indicates a coming together of lovers, of ideas, of energies. Feel the vibrancy of your confidence and purpose. Feel your wholehearted respect in powerful witness with your love. There is vitality at every scale for you at this time! Now is a grand time for enhancing and strengthening partnerships in your personal and business realms.
  • So, it is indicated that this online degree takes a concerted and invested lifetime which is too long for a degree other than a PhD of Next!  Face it.  With The Lovers here you LOVE being a lifetime student and teacher and master and student.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = You love the Idea Solar System of your life and learning.  Say thank you out loud to Bryant & Stratton College and smilingly hit “Delete Forever.”  Now, isn’t that a weight off your shoulders.

Spam Card 2 ~ Quick House Improvements.  Get your Home Improvement project started.

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. Be 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, this card is really making me want to get my Home Improvement started . . . except there was major remodel construction on the property for 10 months that just finished last month, and the remodel construction next door will be going on for who knows how long.  The Knight asked them, and doesn’t believe what they said.  So, thanks Quick House Improvement people.  I will knightly take your suggestion and start enJOYing the Home that has already been Improved even more.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = This Knight rode in to say this spam message was more than a day late and a dollar short.  When the Egyptians ran out of time, they would fill it back up with water, and I’ll hold this spam at the bottom of that water . . .

Spam Card 3 ~ Ultrasound Tech Center.  Ultrasound technician opportunities

5 of Swords

  • The 5 of Swords indicates an overwhelming sense of defeat yet ignores the ego throwing a tantrum about it afterwards. Feel strongly that you do not need to perfect yourself to be loved at this time. Wash up on your own shore after the storm has broken. Feel the calm AFTER your storm. Careful reassessments and subtle movements are indicated to get out of your heart knot. Wipe your brow and move forward slowly with big breaths.
  • So, it is indicated to get all this sand off of me after sliding up on the shore after that ultra loud storm. . . and bitch about that high-pitched noise that cracked the chrome plating off of all the cars in the neighborhood.  Oops.  I won’t tell. Somehow, though, the alarms didn’t go off.  Interesting.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading =  CRACK OF THE BAT!  Now THAT was an ultra sound!

Spam Card 4 ~ Franchise opportunities.  Should you start your own business with a franchise?

XI Strength

  • Strength indicates mastering self-control and taming fears or impulses. Feel infinite fortitude and self-restraint while incorporating your voice at this time. Visualize a sprinter sitting, a tiger napping. Strength is not indicated to tame your beast, but to harness your voice. A simple way is indicated. A simple gesture will establish your direction as your strength is naturally present. Anything more than necessary may cause decay. Understand you are very powerful at this time. Be mindful of others as you are playing with more power than you may know. Step as only you need at this time. Develop an understanding that the strength of your presence is felt without threat, backlash, or skepticism.
  • So, actually today I would say that connecting the energy of your voice through a franchise sounds like a great idea.  Just make sure whatever you do doesn’t disenfranchise your voice in the rest of your life.  If there is playing a petty part, the answer is NO NO NO!  If there is playing for keeps that pleases your natural inner animal, GO FOR IT! . . . but not from the source of the spam mind you.
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = Express your voice as the Mom-n-Pop franchise of YOU!  Be like Highlander.  THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!  Reduce the amount of copycat efforts you have in your life to discover strength-y overlaps, natural and seamless synchromeshes in a reciprocal spiral of giving and receiving.

Spam Card 5 ~ Vacation Resort Specialist.  The money or your timeshare?

Knight of Swords

  • The Knight of Swords indicates you are a generator of ideas and love being well-placed. Along with opposition, large or small, your conviction in your beliefs and ideas is very alive. It is also indicated further to defend what you stand for and that you love putting ideas into action!
  • So, it is indicated to keep you money so you can more easily put your ideas into action!
  • Knock it out of the park alternate reading = You may just get taken for a short and sharp ride with a timeshare.  Be like a Knight and camp outside.  Or, call ahead for reservations so you can camp somewhere that has a lobby.  Knights don’t pay when they are not staying somewhere.

Enjoy playing 

the Forgetting Is For Getting Laughter Warm-uptechnique 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!

And, Oh!

Yesterday’s Tarot For Tips Tuesday was such a success, and I so enjoyed the responses I received . . . I’ve decided that as a service offering, I am going to leave the Tarot For Tips donation button up on my website, and keep doing them for a while!  A one day offering on a spur of the minute thought really doesn’t spread the love very far. So, get your Tarot For Tips eReading at your convenience.

Happy Wednesday, and have a great week!

Wednesday Tarot Warming Up Workshop

Wednesday Tarot Warming Up Workshop

Tarot Wednesday Warming Up Workshop

Following up on Monday’s Mystereum Tarot Mayhem blog, here’s a mini-workshop for you right in this blog. Nothing to sign up for or schedule.  Simply a 5-card exercise as it came to me yesterday smiling big remembering the amount of laughter I had writing the blog, and that others conveyed they had reading it . . . I bubbly-faced smiled as I realized, “What a great technique for showing people:

  • how to warm up for readings and getting your celestial groove going with humor, as humor feels to be a healthy, integrated, preventitive armor that requires no maintenance. Humor’s shinier than steel.
  •  who have a hard time saying “no” how to not be silent about their “no”, by higher octaving their ability to say no FULLY to someone or something by stepping past their first reaction to get to a humor response . . . 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
  • how it can be fun and very healthy to say, “I don’t believe you” as easily as The Queen of Swords would.
  • the natural leadership present in the Queens in action

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, I woke up on the bright side today.  Why not read the 1st 5 spams in my spam email folder.  Heck, they’re free.  And, if this doesn’t get you to search for buried treasure in your spam folder that isn’t from Nigeria, why not read the 1st 5 things you see where you are reading this?

Spam Email As Alchemy? inquiries of Buried Treasure?  Probably not, though Sure!

I know from years of training that warming up and practice can often be taken way too seriously.  Sometimes making too much of the same which bores the dickens out of the expansion when really focusing on your activity whatever it is.  Do you get all serious when you throw a frisbee or watch a kite flying?  Even if you do, isn’t it a seriousness that is more of a Magician’s full-on focus that is magical?  Expert skill in play I say.

So, here is your Wednesday Tarot Warming Up Workshop Intro

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.  Use the spam title as the card topic, and the snippet of the first several words you see on the spam email list where you see the title.  Simple.  Title as card topic.

Taking the time to make 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.

And, here is your Wednesday Tarot Warming Up Workshop! Have fun & then FORGET!  Forgetting is for getting. Makes more room for the good stuff.

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 to explore the natural leadership present in the Queens that is present in you and to pump up your humor and prime your celestial groove.

Spam Card 1 ~ Male Enhancement.  Do you want to increase your ejaculate volume?

10 of Pentacles

  • The 10 of Pentacles indicates prosperity and close relationships. A love of inheritances is also indicated. . .the kind you were born with! YOU! Practical stability and the tangibly material, physical world may be vibrantly infusing your intuition. Meld close relationships and prosperity. Enjoy this time of ties and enrichment where you celebrate your inborn inheritances!
  • So, it is indicated to be waaaayyyyy better to view my relationship with myself and others AS a form of prosperity, and be good with the solidity of what I have.
  • Alternate reading = You have plenty. If you want to enhance something, take wallet-enhancer pills.

Spam Card 2 ~ Easy Insurance. Do you need a $250k life insurance policy?

10 of Wands

  • The 10 of Wands indicates courage shown along your path. There is an agility and a wonderfully strong balance of all you carry indicated. Here you may easily tow everything with the grace of your own body. Each twilight sky prefigures the coming of the night just as dawn loves the promise of the coming day. Love your wonderful new challenges as the twilight and dawn love the night and the day!
  • Notice you are carrying 10 wands and moving forward.  Heck, carrying 10 wands without dropping them is a feat in itself.  No matter the precarious nature of your balance, keep your energy moving forward without adding anything.  You have a complete bundle already.  So, nope, thanks for the offer.

Spam Card 3 ~ Yaz Injury.

What?!! Yaz? I LOVED that band in the 80’s! “Only You” off of “Upstairs At Eric’s” is still the bees knees all pollinated n stuff.  Ok Ok, back to playing along, I’ll pull a card

Queen of Cups

    • The Queen of Cups indicates harmony in your emotional and intuitive realms. Relying on inner guidance and a flowing inner perspective that is thick and rich is also indicated. Your natural leadership is taking charge in matters of your inner life. Draw upon the wisdom of the ages with your emotions. This is a time when your strong imagination and creativity may sense hidden depths not readily apparent! Expressing your emotions confidently is indicated at this time.
    • So, thanks for the offer, but I think I’ll worry not a bit about injury regardless of what you name it, and concern myself more with going to YouTube and listening to “Only You” from “Upstairs at Eric’s.” I won’t use 20/20 hindsight, though . . . the head in butt vision.  You tend to bump into stuff in that Yoga posture. Plus, it’s dark and hard to see.  Eyes are open even if behind a blindfold.  Trust your vision and you’ll avoid injury.
    •  

Spam Card 4 ~ Affordable Health Rates. Insurance killing your wallet?

10 of Swords

  • The 10 of Swords indicates ruin and anguish, both physical pain and otherwise. Also indicated is letting yourself know that the worst has already passed. Rock bottom is a strong place to stand. Look up! Anything visible is probably something better, You have pulled through. take a big breath. Phewww!
  • So, the dog days of doing that are over.  Anything looks better from here!  I’ll look for those wallet enhancer pills instead.

Spam Card 5 ~ Your Faith And Love In One. Do you know how to meet Christian Singles?

4 of Cups

  • The 4 of Cups indicates seeing one’s desires manifesting in the first signs of their success. Good fortune and good luck are also indicated. A pause is indicated which can be seen as stagnation on one hand. On the other hand, though, there is a still and powerful observation present out of a thorough responsibility to what is being done at this time. Focus your sense of responsibility at this time that is indicated to be thorough and inherent.
  • Hmmm, 4’s would indicate to stop worrying about the labels and live instead. Look at the new Cup born of the volcano.  A treasure of the earth!  Grapes come to mind.  Hmmm, thinking about communion and singing, “la la la they drink grape juice and I drink wine . . . Thank God I’m a Methodist.”  WAIT!  Phew! I USED to be.  No Welches in sight, but who’s SHE?!!

Enjoy playing 

the Forgetting Is For Getting Laughter Warm-uptechnique 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!

Monday Mystereum Tarot Mayhem

Monday Mystereum Tarot Mayhem

Monday Mystereum 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.  Why not read the 1st 5 spams in my spam email folder.  Heck, they’re free.

Spam Email As Alchemy? Serendipitous inquiries?  Sure!

So, here is my reading of the 1st five spam emails that were in my spam folder this morning.

    • So, thanks for the offer, but I think I’ll worry not a bit about injury regardless of what you name it, and concern myself more with going to YouTube and listening to “Only You” from “Upstairs at Eric’s.” I won’t use 20/20 hindsight, though . . . the head in butt vision.  You tend to bump into stuff in that Yoga posture. Plus, it’s dark and hard to see.  Eyes are open even if behind a blindfold.  Trust your vision and you’ll avoid injury.
    •  

Card 4 ~ Affordable Health Rates. Insurance killing your wallet?

10 of Swords

  • The 10 of Swords indicates ruin and anguish, both physical pain and otherwise. Also indicated is letting yourself know that the worst has already passed. Rock bottom is a strong place to stand. Look up! Anything visible is probably something better, You have pulled through. take a big breath. Phewww!
  • So, the dog days of doing that are over.  Anything looks better from here!  I’ll look for those wallet enhancer pills instead.

Card 5 ~ Your Faith And Love In One. Do you know how to meet Christian Singles?

4 of Cups

  • The 4 of Cups indicates seeing one’s desires manifesting in the first signs of their success. Good fortune and good luck are also indicated. A pause is indicated which can be seen as stagnation on one hand. On the other hand, though, there is a still and powerful observation present out of a thorough responsibility to what is being done at this time. Focus your sense of responsibility at this time that is indicated to be thorough and inherent.
  • Hmmm, 4’s would indicate to stop worrying about the labels and live instead. Look at the new Cup born of the volcano.  A treasure of the earth!  Grapes come to mind.  Hmmm, thinking about communion and singing, “la la la they drink grape juice and I drink wine . . . Thank God I’m a Methodist.”  WAIT!  Phew! I USED to be.  No Welches in sight, but who’s SHE?!!

Tarot. Sunday Services. Moon and Temperance

Tarot. Sunday Services. Moon and Temperance

Sunday Services . . .

Short thoughts and visual arias on cards

The Moon and Temperance

May your intuition, your imagination, and your inner life reflect your identity as a key to the treasure of your magical, bad-ass self.

Best to your own alchemical team 

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

May the magical space between day and night that is twilight

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

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

Inner Insight Glimpsing Into Eternal Insight: The Full Central Lunar Eclipse

How much more can you close your eyes to experience VISION?  What of when the night sky closes its eyes to the moon in a full central lunar eclipse?

How exciting!  Well, I think.  We are in for the 1st of 2 total lunar eclipses on Wednesday, June 15, 2011.  The second will occur on December 10th. The moon will be in Sagittarius on June 15th, and the earth is projected to cast its shadow on the moon making the full lunar eclipse last for some 100 minutes.  It is also an extremely rare central eclipse where the moon will pass through the centerline of the earth’s shadow.  The next central lunar eclipse will be on July 27, 2018. (ref. Wikipedia link)

I say, “I think”, as I feel there is merit in Bonnie Cehovet’s statement that, “. . . but that has to be disruptive in some way.”  From my perspective, and I have heard many conflicting ideas on eclipses as of late from my astrology buddies, lunar and solar, yet with this one being a rare central eclipse, I felt them reaching somehow in statements that sounded all too reasonable, and too. . .too, “that makes too much sense to believe.”  The statement, “reasons are often unreasonable” came to mind, and I smiled feeling a lot more comfortable eclipsing all that chatter and feeling into it myself, divining it.

So, why not work that out right here in a blog in one take kinda thing?  That’s how I do most things anyway, them not taking an hour or two, but more so taking my whole life up to that point with a “let ‘er rip n build something” where the meaning occurs in the act, with the meaning AS the act.  Heck, I don’t really know if I layered that wisdom into the stories told in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum or if building it, Mystereum taught me.  I can say that mastery, one way or the other, led to discovery.  Maybe no matter if I AM Marco Polo’s hull after a voyage, or the starry-eyed-in-anticipation person standing on the dock as the hull reveals and unfolds it treasures at my feet.  Maybe both. Maybe neither.  Certainly not nether.

Let’s start with 4 features: the 4 big ole archetypal Tarot ideas for the eclipse of The Sun, The Moon, and Temperance — as the moon will be in Saggie, and Temperance is ruled by Sag.  The Sun and the Moon are kinda necessary for this lunar eclipse gig to happen. They intermix in this central lunar eclipse as an alchemical rue due to a more mundane gig, though. . .Earth.  Respecting that, it feels to be fitting to bring in another, The Empress as Momma Gaia to represent earth.  Then another, The World, as the universe of an alchemist’s crucible wherein all 4 intermix.  So, that’s 5. The Sun.  The Moon.  Temperance.  The Empress.  The World.  Before this gets ad infinitum out of hand, before the roller coaster dynamic of a multi-layer chess tennis match between them all unfolds on Wednesday, and I ask you to smile and fasten your seat belts. . . it seems prudent, WOW I actually used that word for once. . .It seems prudent to pose a centerline or nucleus of some questions first.  Pose them not for what we will see, but for more expansive focus toward further opening up vision.  Vision, the kind where you don’t say, “the sky’s the limit,” as that is limiting.  Simply look up.  Point to it.  It’s right there.  The sky is then equivalent to sight, what we see or want to see.  Thinking bigger than that, that seems to be what I am calling vision here.  Seeing the powerful limit beyond the sky that is given by vision.  Maybe the questions coming up are my own boxes of the blind-spots of expectation, of sight rather than vision.  That’ll have to be up to you.

So. . . . . . .

How much more unconscious and depthfully intuitive can we be made as we simply gaze right out at the not-there-in-the-sky-hiding-in-plain-sight central lunar eclipse moon?  Do we see further in when looking at, into, its darkness in the darkness of the night?

Maybe the experience is like a natal astro chart of someone I know with Neptune and Mercury 4 degrees from one another in Scorpio?  Basically, someone being born with a foot on both sides, where even taking a walk takes that person multiple places at once where those places are all mostly always integrated together in a single experience that seems normal to them?  Hmmmm. . .  Someone who sees psychic contents as easily as looking at art in a museum?  A place where the autonomic, everyday devotion of breath is the prayer, the ongoing meditation?    Seat belts, please. 😀   Here we go. . . .

Hmmm. . .dark in dark.  Is this an anomaly of an antinomy, the totality of inner opposites. . .yet an antinomy of a totality of inner sameness, the moon and our intuition going into the dark of our own earthly shadow?  Pictures!  How?  What’s there to see with vision?  I have another question also coming to mind that I should preface before I blotto-transcend it.  With the yin-yang symbol, the black spot being more than a beauty mark in the white field, is the spot really a psychic wormhole?  A psychic wormhole where you go so far into the light as to become dark, and wormhole through the spot POOF to the dark field. . .and then the other way you go so far into the dark that POOF you come to the light dot bright-spot and POOF you wormhole again to. . . . I rather like that activation of the symbol.  But, enough of the question-preface of that scenario as it seems small now.  I sense a larger question:

What happens when the dark goes into the dark?

Does intuition get deeper, where the Moon, the bright eye of intuition in the night sky. . .goes dark?  Deeper intuition?  A huge sense of a loss of bearing?  Vast expansiveness afloat in total clarity in total darkness, a Hanged Man moment you cannot see?  Do you experience glimpses of eternity from your known depths of the realms of your creativity and imagination and experience?  Total dissolution of self, or is it more not an annihilation of self but more fully a self-realization of the far reaches of one’s infinite inner divinity plunging further into the night so to speak?

The Penumbra Missing That Is A New Experience.  Alternate title?  No, I think I have said what I want to about the coming eclipse. . .there’s a title of a poem rattling around in that alternate title. . .the now-subject of this blog dedicated to the full lunar eclipse on Wednesday.  I’ll run that, too, since I am warmed up.   If you cannot see the eclipse in your area, maybe so much the better.  Look at the moon and close your eyes with your own Momma-Gaia earth-shadow eyelids.  Fully eclipse the moon yourself passing dark into dark, a void between stars, an odd, “hmmm, of a dark spot the size of the moon.”  It may be a blank darkness in the night.  It may be another imaginative wormhole to take you places and dissolve false connections.  Again, that’s for you to decide and/or feel / experience.  I will be curious what the core resonance of dark passing into dark is for everyone.  Until then, I better write that poem while IT seems to still be warm. . .

The Missing Penumbral Light. A New Experience

Shadow shadow in the night,

I do not see you though I dance without fright.

Stop rhyming you say,

and I say,

ok.

Your Pallas-Athena gift that formed and set up in my mind

between Uranus the Shaker-Upper

and Pluto The Transformer

seems a gift that extends a gift,

extending the gift of the dark passing into the dark,

further into night,

night passing back a different glimpse of eternity from its own deeper night,

eternity’s own shadowed moon seen not-there.

Your gift.

Your Pallas-Athena gift saturates an old dusty idea in my mind.

The Sophia Principle if I remember correctly,

where may I be lucid enough to sense my shadow,

but smart enough to dance with it,

and now, smarter falls away to more. . .

Acceptant and receiving

I will dance

in the dark

with my shadow,

with and IN my earthly shadow

in Gaia-cast night-level shadow,

Gaia-cast

Gaia cast up to right not-there the moon,

now right not-there in the night sky,

where my symbols of intuition and depth disappear into experience,

where on this night

dark passes into dark.

Where on this night an infinite dark passes into my night.

What happens inside when the dark goes into the dark outside?

What happens when the dark goes into the dark?
