Tarot Psychology. Are Creating and Manifestating the same?

So, I am thinking that semantics are just that… Some antics

… but not here. Creation and manifestation are not the same thing.

I’ve Heard

I’ve heard…The Divine Feminine creates, the Divine Masculine manifests. This can be supported by the natural leadership of the Queens and the implementation orders of the Kings.  But wait!

architecture = arche and techne.

~ Arche is the creating, the first spark of an idea.  It is formless and can = inception.
~ Techne is the making, the putting together OF that idea.  It is giving form to the formlessness and can = conception.
Creates = brings into being like an idea and it is formless as it is still in the mind…  to create.
Manifests or makes = bringing formlessness into form, spiriting matter soulfully… to manifest.

Subtle Distinctions

There is a subtle distinction between “to create” and “to make,” though also a hefty one at their conceptual base.  People often utilize “create” and “make” as synonyms, and though they are in the same family, they are not the same.  They are complementary in the process… like supplementary angles = 180 degrees, and complementary angles sum up to 90 degrees — (embedding disabled by request).  One is, say, 120 degrees and then the other is 60 degrees to make the supplementary sum of 180 with 120.  They are not the same, though they contribute to the 180 or final product… they manifest or make the supplementary relationship in total.  Like tossing up a tennis ball and serving an ace. Two things that taste great together.  Like creating and making, they work together, though they are not the same.

Divine Feminine creates, Divine Masculine manifests?

Interesting with the Tarot that in regards to statement, “The Divine Feminine creates, the Divine Masculine manifests?,” there is a role reversal in regards to this with The Magician and The High Priestess… where The Magician is the first spark on the table in the Place of Creation bringing forth the formless and weightless idea to orbit in mind/psyche from The Place of Creation. Is the Mag then about inception?  And, The High Priestess gives form to the formlessness of The Magician’s first spark.  Can the High Priestess then be about conception?

And then of course move to The Empress and Emperor, and She creates emanating from her Yoniverse while He makes by establishing place.

Inception to Conception

Inception to conception, if so from The Magician to The High Priestess…  Then, of course on to The Empress where the Priestess’ form is carried to full term to be birthed and emanate from the Yoniverse… Then, from that here is a little Tarot Psychology individuation sketch outline…

Individuation Continues through the Tarot

~ to The Emperor to establish place  Emperor makes, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Hierophant to bring spirit down to earth. Hierophant makes down-to-earth spirit, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Lovers to vibrantly relate. Lovers make relationship, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Chariot to move these integrated and coupled opposites of antinomy.  Chariot makes dynamic actions, creating a place to move on…
~ to Justice to experience balance and imbalance.  Justice makes weighed choices, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Hermit to prefigure the coming cycle with reflection on the journey.  Hermit makes foresight perspective, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Wheel to mark the milestones. Wheel makes cycles, creating a place to move on…
~ to Strength to discover and adjust and tune and tailor inner animal voice, natural voice. Strength makes natural clarity of expression, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Hanged Man afloat in clarity to open up the crown chakra. Hanged Man makes meditation, creating a place to move on…
~ to Death to transform at speed, Death as the wheel within the Wheel.  Death makes cycles within life, creating a place to move on…
~ to Temperance for the above and below to couple as they magically mix alchemically.  Temperance makes alchemy, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Devil to experience earthly desires and evolve the use of the head-butting  goat ego. Devil makes intense, individual desires, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Tower to turn over the pond, another cycle along the way. Tower world-alteringly clears the way for new worlds, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Star for discovering one’s celestial groove.  Star makes dreams come to light, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Moon for intensely poetic reflection and even crazy-mad misdirection.  Moon makes perspective hinge on a bigger picture, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Sun for shining one’s bright identity from celestially discovered Inner Inheritances incorporating the whole process thus far from an archetypally personal perspective, creating a place to move on…
so that…
~ to the resurrection of Judgment in a molting where adversity won’t build character, it will reveal it… the snake his skin not missed.  Judgment makes perennial life-seasons evident, creating a place to move on…
~ to one coming into being into higher octave being in The World, the big wheel.  World makes a Portal of the Seamless Segue (PotSS) which you can find in The World card’s voice in Tarot in the Land of Mystereum, creating a place to move on…
~ to The Fool or…

How Would YOU Order…

  • How would you order your Tarot suits before continuing this sketch exercise?
  • Would you do Aces first? … and then the Family of 2’s, and then the Family of 3’s, and then the Family of 4’s, … and so on?
  • Would you go suit by suit?  If so, how do you order the suits?
  • How does this allude to psychological development?… Does it need to assume individuation?
  • And, if you do the switcheroo with Strength and Justice, VIII XI card flip-flop, how would you revise the above?

What things do you create?  What do you make from your creations?

Listening to the Mystereum cards speak, resonant like an epic movie. 

Tarot in the Land of Mystereum. It’s all about discovering your Inner Inheritances.

Ones: Birth-Placing Clarity

Tarot Birth Identities:

Ones: Birth-Placing Clarity With The Sun ~ The Wheel ~ The Magician

Welcome to my Tarot Birth Card Identity Blog!  This blog is intended to be a simple overview of Tarot Birth Cards, a casual and concise walk-through of the groupings of Birth Cards to express some of the ways that they can contribute vital components to identity.  Also, I will layer in Birth Card Preludes afterwards to express the whole of each Birth Card grouping in a short statement.  I find that these Preludes, as I like to call them, are best stated afterward first as triggers to remind one how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of the Birth Cards.  Enjoy finding your own path with these, and look forward to hearing your own, personal “trigger” Preludes and Birth Card thoughts directly composed from your feeling-sense of them.

Note also how these Birth Card expressions and Preludes factor in to hook up and work with my videos like the Aces Four Potential and Twos To Pair at .  Enjoy the correspondences of the numbers as they flow back and forth between the Major Arcana in the Birth Cards and each of the suits of the Minor Arcana and Courts in the videos.  Also, I encourage you to have some fun and come up with integrated Birth Card Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well Your Royal Court characters.  You will experience an example Prelude below.

So, to start for example with a 3-card Birth Card combo, the first card can represent the person’s Outer Expression.  The 2nd card can be their Added Incentive.  And, the third card can represent their Inner Expression.  So for example with the Birth Card Chart combo of a XIX, X, I; 19, 10, 1; The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magican: 

19 is the Outer Expression10 is the Added Incentive 1 is the Inner Expression

For a 10, 1 combo: 10 is the Outer Expression1 is the Inner Expression.  A Prelude of your own making can create and make your own brand of an Added Incentive integrated, hiding in plain sight, and /or simply inherent from your perspective.

So, let’s get started walking through these shall we?



[ XIX ~ X ~ I ]   [ 19 ~ 1 ~ 1 ]
Note how the numbers of these cards add up to 1, and thus correspond with the Aces in general, and the Aces Four Potential video on the Flics page at .  Enjoy the videos, and there is also a link to my YouTube Channel where you can see all the videos released for The Lanbd of Mystereum thus far.


One’s Birth Card Prelude: With The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician as your Birth Cards you have the ability to tap into magical cycles of identity.     A Birth Card Prelude can be as simple as a few words, and as inviting and expansive as the title of a book, the ever-evolving book of You!

See how this simple Prelude statement expresses the 3 character as facets of one personality:

The Sun ~ identity                   The Wheel ~ cycles                The Magician ~ magical

Putting them back together again, and note that the attributes are utilized in reverse.  That’s your call: With The Sun ~ Wheel ~ Magician as your Birth Cards you have the ability to tap into magical cycles of identity.


The Sun card represents your Outer Expression.  This is how most people ‘see’ you in the world.  The Sun card is known for its subtle strength of constancy.  With The Sun card representing your Outer Expression experience the subtle strengths of the constancy of your perspective and presence as you brightly express yourself.  Know that even when it is overcast or dark or you experience emotional weather, you shine somewhere regardless.  Keep sight of what you brighten.

The Wheel of Fortune represents your Added Incentive.  This is a card of synchronicity, cause and effect and what many call karma.  When the Wheel of Fortune is part of your Added Incentive you can expect to feel catalyzed as you move through and into new cycles in your life.

The Magician represents your Inner Expression.  This is a side of you that only your closest family and friends ‘see’.  The Magician as your Inner Expression symbolizes that you present things clearly, but subtly distorted from the way others might expect.  You have a uniquely complete thought process and imagination to infuse your actions.

Hope you have enjoyed this Birth Card Identity and Birth Card Prelude I have put together for you.  Comments always welcome.  Look forward to hearing from you in Your Tarot voice!  Powerfully evocative and life-ful Tarot experiences to You and Yours!

Until next time! 

Jupiter’s Blessings, ~Jordan
