Tarot Blog Hop – Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi! 6

PREVIOUS BLOG | MASTER LIST | NEXT BLOG

 

TBHWelcome to the Tarot Blog Hop! If you have ‘hopped’ before, then let me briefly explain, for those of you that have, feel free to skip this bit: A hop is a group of unique and experienced people who write, blog or work with Tarot. We come together at a set times during the wheel of the year and the cat herder, juggler of strange people that keep imploding aka the Wrangler, will set the topic and those of us who partake end up insane, mostly because we’re composing, writing and posting down to the last second…

 

TBHThis month I have been let loose as the Cat Juggler and Head wrangler for this months Tarot Blog Hop! For The Samhain Tarot Blog Hop (2017) I gave it the name “Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi! (The King is Dead, Long Live The King): Birth, Death & Rebirth” It is a follow on from last year’s Ancestors Post from the Samhain Blog Hop set by Louise Underhill. Another Year has reached its conclusion and collectively as well as individually we’ve experienced change. Through these changes, we’ve received many gifts from our Lineage. For this year’s Samhain Hop, I am interested to find out where individually and collectively we are at the end of this cycle. My suggestions were to use either a single card or a three card spread from a chosen deck and ask – What do the cards tell you about where this cycle has lead you, Where have you been? and also to look at What they tell about where you are headed, aka Where are you going? but also I posed the question What do you feel has changed for you at the end of this cycle along your journey of life?

 

TBHI decided to handle each question separately, for looking a head I used an equal house spread, commonly found in astrology and the deck I used for this was The Hermetic Tarot (pictured), which will be interesting for me because I have not actually used them for any readings, I am hopeful that the cards are going to be easy to work with and if so then I may consider taking them with me to any events or work with them when I have clients.

 

TBHAs for the other questions, I decided that I would like to work with the Tarot De Los Angels; this is another new deck for me and very reminiscent of how I started working with Tarot; the deck is Spanish from what I recognise of the words, my very first deck was French, so I ended up learning how to read cards differently because of the difference in language, so again I am looking forward to finding out how this will work out for me.

 

TBHOkay so let’s get started shall we; you know I had a completely different opening planned, it was going to a bit dark and filled with mystery. Descriptive scene setting, both textually and also here in real life because of it being Samhain / All Souls Night, however by time I go home, got the Munster booted up and the site logged into, I completely forgot how I was going to set it up for you… In saying that knowing me, I will write this, post it and then remember how it was going to be done… Anyway enough banter (such as it is), let’s take a look shall we… This post will be set out a little differently and is picture intensive, so it might take a moment longer to load on some devices.

 

TBHThe Equal House is one of the more common ways used in Astrology, many astrological programs and courses use this method. When I utilise this in Tarot, I tend to stick with the meanings that I have come to understand from when I did my Astrology diploma. The clock is not read in the same way as it is for telling time, the first house is where the 9 would be on the clock and then you work anti-clock wise, so where 8 would be becomes the second house, don’t worry if you are starting to feel an Ow that hurts my head coming on, I have an example below that should hopefully make things a bit more clearer…

 

TBHThe meanings for the houses are as follows…

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE HOUSES

First House (The Ascendant): LIFE, HEALTH, THE MAIN ISSUE. THE PERSON THE READING IS FOR.

Second House: MONEY, PROPERTY, PERSONAL WORTH.

Third House: BROTHERS, SISTERS, NEWS, SHORT JOURNEYS.

Fourth House: FATHER, LAND, PROPERTY,INHERITANCE, THE GRAVE, THE END OF THE MATTER.

Fifth House: CHILDREN, PLEASURE, FEASTS, SPECULATION.

Sixth House: WORKERS, SICKNESS, UNCLES & AUNTS, PETS, SMALL ANIMALS. THOSE WHO WORK FOR US.

Seventh House: LOVE, MARRIAGE, HUSBAND, WIFE, PARTNERS, ASSOCIATIONS, LAWSUITS, LEGAL MATTERS.

Eighth House: DEATHS, WILLS, LEGACIES, PAIN, ANXIETY, DOUBTS.

Ninth House: LONG JOURNEYS, VOYAGES, SCIENCE, RELIGION, ART, VISIONS, DIVINATIONS, OCCULT AND SPIRITUAL MATTERS AND DEVELOPMENT.

Tenth House: MOTHER, RANK OR SOCIAL STANDING, HONOUR, TRADE OR PROFESSION, AUTHORITY, EMPLOYMENT, THOSE WE WORK FOR. GENERAL WORLDLY POSITION.

Eleventh House: FRIENDS, HOPES, WISHES. AMBITIONS, TARGETS.

Twelfth House: SORROWS, FEARS, PUNISHMENTS, HIDDEN ENEMIES, OR OBSTRUCTIONS, INSTITUTIONS, ADMINISTRATION, PUBLIC OFFICES OR DEPARTMENTS, RESTRICTIONS, RULES & REGULATIONS.

 

TBHThe astrological or calendar spread is split, so the first six houses to one picture and the following six into the following picture. This spread is focusing on the question: What they tell about where you are headed, aka Where are you going?

 

First House (The Ascendant): LIFE, HEALTH, THE MAIN ISSUE. THE PERSON THE READING IS FOR. – The Moon this is the card of emotions both seen and unseen. A great deal happening under the surface, one pillar of the Two towers dealing with the now, and the other dealing with that which has yet to unfold. The wings of the lady-bug have unfolded but there is no flight as yet. Therefore while Life and Health remain in constant change, there is an inner strength there. The Gods of Fate are facing each other which suggests that in terms of divinity, it is time for flight and in terms of me (the person that the reading is for) it suggests that this is the right time to start looking ahead.

Second House: MONEY, PROPERTY, PERSONAL WORTH.The Chariot An interesting place for this card to fall, because it suggests that there is a sense of quick money, if it is needed then intention can sometimes be enough to bring it in. However the stumbling block with this one is that The Chariot, particularly here is trying to encourage self belief and confidence in the area of Self worth and there is a great sense of work in progress with this one. Also a sense of needing a place of stability to work as well.

Third House: BROTHERS, SISTERS, NEWS, SHORT JOURNEYS. The Princess of Cups Now this is curious, lots happening here; there is a sense that in terms of news there is an oppertunity but it requires the self belief and also not to be crude but showing up and stepping up as well, this gives the impression of being still in this year. It requires bravery as well in many respects.

Fourth House: FATHER, LAND, PROPERTY,INHERITANCE, THE GRAVE, THE END OF THE MATTER. The Six of Pentacles This is quite a subdued card, but then given this time of year and in the house of the Father, it is expected. However there is a success in this area to, so where there are cycles coming to their end this is the time for them but it is also a time for limited prosperity and success, so small ventures and small ideas can be beneficial at this time.

Fifth House: CHILDREN, PLEASURE, FEASTS, SPECULATION. Fortitude This is in a strong position, it shows that trusting the instincts and following them through is not a bad thing. There is a need for being strong with this card as well, but also doing and being apart of activities that are fun and enjoyable are needed, these things reminds us we are human beings, not just a human doing.

 

TBHTh is the second part of the astrological or calendar spread is split, it is the last six houses in this picture. This spread is focusing on the question: What they tell about where you are headed, aka Where are you going?

 

Sixth House: WORKERS, SICKNESS, UNCLES & AUNTS, PETS, SMALL ANIMALS. THOSE WHO WORK FOR US. Hierophant This card is very much about being the one to pass on his knowledge, and in the sixth house it very much represents the teacher/learner relationship. It is very much a time for considering passing on what is known.

Seventh House: LOVE, MARRIAGE, HUSBAND, WIFE, PARTNERS, ASSOCIATIONS, LAWSUITS, LEGAL MATTERS. Justice This is about the balance in this area, the balance struck in love becoming stronger, the balance and justice being done in terms of legal matters and also dealing with matters that are important legally, this is very much a strong card for getting it right.

Eighth House: DEATHS, WILLS, LEGACIES, PAIN, ANXIETY, DOUBTS. Hanged Man This holding oneself in check and being responsible for every sneeze that is made needs to reach its end, this needs a conclusion otherwise the cycle will just repeat itself. The hanged man in this instance is pretty much saying stop waiting for a sign, you already have it.

Ninth House: LONG JOURNEYS, VOYAGES, SCIENCE, RELIGION, ART, VISIONS, DIVINATIONS, OCCULT AND SPIRITUAL MATTERS AND DEVELOPMENT. The Magician Talk about cycles are synchronicity, this is just the perfect card for this house, bringing it all together, and co-creating the realities that are needed for this coming year. It is quite literally time to pull everything together and own it. The work, the deep stuff is important for 2018 and onwards. This will be the right time and the right avenue.

Tenth House: MOTHER, RANK OR SOCIAL STANDING, HONOUR, TRADE OR PROFESSION, AUTHORITY, EMPLOYMENT, THOSE WE WORK FOR. GENERAL WORLDLY POSITION. The Knight of Wands Oy Vey, talk about putting the stamp on things! In this position really watch how things are said and done,
True knowing your stuff is one thing but to coin a phrase don’t get cocky and watch the mouth, this knight is on a mission and isn’t really taking any prisoners. More can be accomplished by kindness and understanding than championing without thought.

Eleventh House: FRIENDS, HOPES, WISHES. AMBITIONS, TARGETS. Lovers This is the right card for showing the compassion that resonates from this house. It is very much about creation of connections as the year unfolds. There are new friends, professionals and understanding of how people are and can be coming in at this house. There is a love here but it is of a healing kind.

Twelfth House: SORROWS, FEARS, PUNISHMENTS, HIDDEN ENEMIES, OR OBSTRUCTIONS, INSTITUTIONS, ADMINISTRATION, PUBLIC OFFICES OR DEPARTMENTS, RESTRICTIONS, RULES & REGULATIONS. The Sun The Sun is very much bringing light into the things that need cleared in this house, any unresolved issues, anything that needs to be tidied up or sorted out in relation to this house, is coming in to be cleared it is another one where a stamp is being made in the positive.

 

TBHThis three card spread is focusing on the question: What do the cards tell you about where this cycle has lead you, Where have you been?

 

Interesting how the male and female cards are the ones that came out as well as the star. These are very much about my embodiment and understanding of sexuality. Recently I have come to see that I am both male and female, in essence somewhere between asexual and androgyny, perhaps both. I also recognised that I am basically a Star being having a human lifetime, so these three cards are echoing the confirmation of this journey and saying that the virtues that I have and the progress I am making and have made really have been amazing.

 

TBHThis one card spread is focusing on the question:What do you feel has changed for you at the end of this cycle along your journey of life?

 

Funny how it is The Moon that concludes this hop, this is the card that described my emotions and the insights that I have been in receivership of and what a gift this has been, this cycle reflected by the card is saying that emotionally I have expanded and that now I am both a deeper person, stronger in what I see as my gifts and also expanded in the recognition of my own divinity and female side as well as male side. I am more the person I have long wanted to be, and I am so looking forward to this next cycle.

 

All that is left is to say thank you for taking the time to read this, I don’t know if I will take these decks on the road with me, they are intense and different but it has been awesome working with them on this hop. I would love to hear back from you, so please leave me a comment before you move on to the next person.

Tango of the Wounded Healer – Embracing Bravery

TBHAs with any new skill, trade or information it takes a moment to get to grips with it. Firstly it’s how does it work, followed by what does this do and so it goes on. It’s the same thing when you discover that you’re what’s known as a Wounded Healer. Now to be honest I started at “There’s no such thing”, before I travelled into “This must be a bad thing” before finally arriving at “It’s a brave thing to be here” because being A Wounded Healer is an absolute privilege.

 

TBHHowever, at first I really didn’t understand the concept or what I was meant to do with this knowledge, particularly when you don’t know what to call it. This is one part of this that I have really struggled with for as long as I care to remember. When I began this journey, I started with the SNU (Spiritualist National Union), thinking that this would be the way to go and I had my first brush with abuses of power, but also with what it was possible for me to do.

 

Granted the entire experience was unpleasant, but it was my first brush with being a Wounded Healer. Since that first encounter there have been times when I have walked, then ran in the opposing direction, only to discover that it was always the right direction.

 

(c)2011/10 gdj.graphicdesignjunction.com What I didn’t grasp at that time is the path, this Golden path we all seem to walk, it isn’t one way. The biggest and possibly worst assumption that we can make collectively is that just because linear time dictates that we can not go back in years, doesn’t mean that our path is like that. We can move forward and we can move back along the path, it’s already perfect so there is no way to make a mistake and even if that were to happen, it is already perfect and so it is not a mistake but something to learn from.

 

Even when I turned my back, stopped listening to my calling; a way was found to return me because that was how I was always going to be. It was how it was meant to be, I was still on my Golden Path, all I had done was stepped through the mirror and onto another branch of it, a bit like Alice going through the looking glass; at the other end another mirror and back out on the journey. The lesson being, you can pause, have a breath but sooner or later you will be following your calling.

 

If I am honest until around 7 years ago, I would never have accepted that this was my calling. However there are pivotal moments that completely change you, open you to the possibilities that you have a fated life or a destiny (depending on if you believe in such things). I have often crossed paths with destiny; meeting my husband, meeting my extended family because of a spilt drink and then meeting amazing people through an open invite to my wedding on Social Media.

 

Moments that have changed the course of my life for the better, these moments feel like stepping through mirrors as part of this Golden Path, because sometimes a crossroads or a meeting with Destiny, is fated to change everything. This year has really been a time for release, a time for shedding and a time for letting go of old stagnated energies. So much of this would not have been possible without support from my family, from my husband and mum in particular.

 

(c)2012 Pablo LeboTheir unwavering belief and support has made it okay for me to just let go and be me, to release all the baggage and responsibility that comes with seeing the world differently. I have been dancing to a very intricate tango, learning the moves as I have danced but never felt brave enough to take the lead, until today.

 

The tango is very much like YinYang, for the dance to succeed one must have dominance but rather than the other being subservient, they must bend like a reed in the wind and be supple. The dance originally was between two men, locked in a dance both equals and yet during the dance the roles change as to who is leading who. As Yin will surrender to Yang, so does Yang surrender to Yin, it is the way balance is maintained. It is the way of the Dance.

 

My dance has been about acceptance, understanding that I am a Wounded Healer. Having the understanding of others pain, hurt and loss as well as their joys, loves and journey to beauty.

 

The Wounded Healer, doesn’t try to fix, mend or dictate how another soul should be, instead the Wounded Healer, holds space. The healer will embrace and meet the person where they are and act as a guide. We embrace our bravery and understand that we are reluctant to walk in a world that does not understand us yet, but then in order to heal the wounds that other do not see, we must walk the paths that others cannot know.


The Rites to Reply: Rest in Pieces the Freedoms of Speech…

TBHWe gather here at this time on this blog to pay our respects; indeed it was this very week that the Freedoms of Speech, departed Social Media. It was an unexpected and untimely passing, which seems for many of us to have gone unnoticed. However, for a great many more, the passing of this beautiful and gracious being has a profound impact. Where there was voice, silence now has lease, where there was once safety, the Sword of Damocles now hangs.

 

TBHThe sense of danger now dangles, upon the last strands of that ancient steed’s hair, as the profiles fade to black. As we gather to remember the Freedom, as it was before the weekend, I am reminded of some words spoken at the time of passing… “When all blame is laid at the feet of the innocents, made to feel responsible for the acts of a few, will that make the world better? When all the responsibility has been handed out, given to all the wrong people, and those who it belongs to are dust, will the world be healed?”

 

TBHAs I look around at the blackened profiles, the sad emojis and the empty comments box, I find that I mourn for that Freedom and I ask “When the last sorry is uttered by the last innocent soul, will forgiveness be given to the forefathers and foremothers? When the last of us stands at the mouth of the dead rain forest, will that valuable contribution online matter? In the echoes, the screams, in our blindness and blame, will the illicit pointed finger of complicitness be as dumbstruck as listening to the power of positive trending?”

 

Peering into the crucible as echoes and the screams of popular finger pointing trends, froths up, boils over; I wonder, will nothing become better? When will the healing be done? Because after the dust has settled and the last sorry whispered at the mouth of the dead trees, no one will know what the foremothers and forefathers taught us. The comments boxes will still be empty, the profiles will still be black and the innocents will have been cast out from Social Media.

 

As the tide of scathing posts and malicious memes scald the blameless, deafen the silent and slaughter innocence, will that satisfy the need for blood? As the last Y and the last X Chromosome are sacrificed upon the altars of The Cyan Bird and The Mighty White F, will that mean all is forgiven? Will that #cleanse and #heal the genderless rift? Will that make the illicitness of being complicity ignorant alright?

 

As we gaze at our brightly lit gods, waiting with heads bowed in silent scrolling, let us hashtag and reflect. Let us post as I read out the last Eulogy and Rites of our beloved Freedom; “Will the crime of having no knowledge punishable through the trail of social media be made better, when the blind author obeys and says sorry through woeful fingers? Will the jury of peers #like or thumbs down, as the last YX child drags his coffin and gets ready to fall upon his password login, before he can grow up and do no harm? and she rises from the ashen pyres of scorn upon scorn for being true to their own knowing, will that allow them to post once again?

 

Lets us depart dear ones, as frenemies; hand in hand and forever distant, separated by the poisoned chalice of social media and let us forget now that each one of us has the Rites of Reply, as we bid farewell and commit The Freedoms of Speech to barren and binary land before us. Remembering how they taught us that If when we post hate online, those words won’t anoint, and the holy waters of comments and likes won’t wash us clean.

 

Instead it will rise up like a tide of poison and try as we might to scream from the bullhorn of perceived justice of being right, the false truth will be strapped to our ankles and as we sink down into the bottomless well of silence; maybe then we will notice how all around, everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless, and maybe then we’ll remember, dear Freedoms of Speech, who is no longer there, because this is after all its last rites.

Amen.


Where Silence Has Lease… (Social Media Needs a Safe Word)…

TBHSocial media needs a safe word, particularly at the moment if you are a man. I guess I have never really noticed or needed to notice this, but over the last year as I have become more at home in my body and with my life, it has become a glaringly obvious light on the dashboard of social media.

 

TBHGranted there are loads of reasons why men need to be vilified and have the “It’s You” finger hovering over them. I am NOT advocating that they shouldn’t but what I am saying is that this cycle of the knee jerk reactions, where men are getting booted in their nuts for being men really needs to end. By all means go after the bastards that have been right fcukers and done horrible things but leave the rest of us alone, we’re not guilty by association, just because we happen to be related by the same kind of genitalia!

 

TBHSince the Harvey Weinstien Scandal broke, social media has started to vilify men! (thanks Harv!). It has happened before, any time a man does something wrong, there is a enmasse cull of any men in that industry, remember Nursery Nursing and Teaching? Now there is a national shortage of men in these sectors, thanks to the knee jerk reaction and the fears of the establishments being sued.

 

(c) msmagazine.com/2011/10/Man-as-Object-Della-Calfee.jpg The interesting flip side to this, is that the male image is still objectified, both men and women seem to accept that it is acceptable to sexualise the stereotypical pretty boy and when it is the same thing done to the image of a woman, a four page spread in every print newspaper and magazine appears, followed by the ten minute segment on every rolling news channel and an entire morning of day time talk shows are devoted to the scandal…

 

In an article from The Telegraph, it points out the Men have become more objectified than Women, and the thought that occured to me was wouldn’t men object? but now I think that any attention is better than all the bashing that seems to be going on at the moment.

 

TBHIn our competition obsessed media world, where the outcries about sexualiation are married to the competition to go see the latest dance troupe in New York, London or somewhere else as part of the all expenses paid holiday of a lifetime and I really don’t think that part of the brain that makes associations engages. After-all sex sells and so money and fit blokes shedding clothing, is a perfect storm for full on objectification, provided that you into that kind of thing; and the makers of these programmes are making that assumption. However it’s a very limited form of objectification, because I get the sense that there are no men allowed at some of these troupe venues, and yet the world outside the dropped thongs and stale whipped creme is a very different place.

 

TBHWhen I began this article, the only emotion that I seemed to be having in my system was severe anger and unhappines at just how unfair social media was being to men, however it seems as if there is more to this than I first realised; men are vicitmised, vilified, objectified, sexualised and they just seem to accept it without speaking out. Gay men, straight men and somewhere in the middle men appear to just be okay with this. However having been victim (✓), villain (✓), the object (✓), and yes even sexualised (✓) I am not okay with it.

 

TBHNone of these are nice, spending 8 (plus) years as the victim of various bullies for being “privileged” at public/state school and being told by authority “You brought this on yourself because of who you are”, being sexualised by the gay scene as “fresh meat” while fending off wandering hands, being shared by two men, meeting the approval of your boyfriends psychotic mother as the objectified older man, and then to be thrust into the role of the villain because of jealousy. So you’ll pardon my anger, when the world of social media decides that men are the scourge of the internet because of the actions of a single solitary man, who can’t keep it in his pants until he gets home to his wife.

 

TBHThe part of this that doesn’t make any of what has happened to me okay, the bit that really set this off is when the #metoo meme started, the origin is simple enough and yes, in context does have the potential to raise awareness of something stagnant and putrid at the heart of Hollywood, this almost culture of passing women and men around the studio execs like they are whorederves, an urban word I grant you but it works for this purpose, which is to point out that there is a dark seedy side to being famous, and its a cycle that is repeating, just as jewish actors and workers were vilified and treated badly in the 1950’s, so to are women and men, but rather than address it, sort it and stop it from ever happening again.

 

TBHIt will become a cycle that will do a couple of rounds in the media until the next expose and then it will be forgotten about until something bigger takes its place and we say “must be a slow news day” to bring this up again. Meanwhile in realms and lands of social media, the objectified man will still be scantily clad, on all fours to be used as a desk or some other adornment, while the rallying cries of ban the bastard will come from others because a man happened to post something on his wall.

 

TBHAs I said at the start, Social media needs a safe word, particularly at the moment because for men silence has lease… and we’re making it okay for the social media dominatrix to be as cruel and wicked as it likes because no safe word was asked for and none was given because the objectified male is already gagged and bound.
