Good Morning and Welcome! to The Fool’s Tarot for 18/04/2018; the decks used today are *The Kier Tarot* by J. Iglesias Janeiro & the oracular deck is *Labyrinth Wisdom Cards” by Tony Christie. I saw the layout this morning and the first thing that flashed into my mind was; “Ha! We’re not even paying attention to Phys.-Reality now; these are crystal-clear “snapshots” of exactly what I NEED to see today, not necessarily what I am seeing, but IF I am as well, all the better.” (I don’t know where any of you are on the conspiracy/End of the World /Prediction dates, etc., trains of [pseudo?]thought, but a really big one gathering groundswell right now is, “Hold On- something BIG is coming VERY soon that will change our evolution/destiny forever.” Well, yes, don’t we
ALL hope that is right? But just in case it’s not (grin,) this reading reflects a remarkably compact, compressed summary of ‘almost’ where I am . . . remember, that is ‘almost.’ So, if we can say that I am living at the moment as XII the Hanged Man, then this stripping down, this flensing of my interior being is perfectly symbolized; I DO feel as if I am being “force-stripped” to the bone and not with a scalpel but with a shovel. Having cancer and taking the chemotherapy to send it back to Hell changes A GREAT DEAL about how your perceptions are ‘oriented’ in a quotidian manner, and then instantly, jarringly finding yourself alone in the cockpit of some Air Force test vehicle at 100,000 mph above the atmosphere. WHOOOPS – SHOCK! However . . . “Sit down, Glasshoppah, and let me tell you the story of how two siblings, through anger and fault, found truth and freedom. 53 Hostility is SO not how I picture myself on a daily basis; YET, if I am going to be Me, then I need to acknowledge that this last turn through the testosterone placement must have been particularly screwed-up. ALL of my (male–current-ish) life can be framed in some sort of Hostility/Fear dialogue. This was the problem being raised by Morlocks instead of Children of the Light.
(Grin, ho-ho-ho, lol, yet quite true.) I DO believe my masculinity has almost always been based on Anger simply because as a child I had been forced to live in Fear. However, right now, if the Hanged Man wants to nicely filet that out of my ribs and throw it on the karma-fire, then I say “DO it!” because I AM willing to let the vessel be stripped empty to attend the “new contents” on their way.” Whether that is the perceived “psychic A-bomb” scenario of the “Let’s join a Group!” crowd, or as the stripping down and deconstructing I MUST do to cleanly exit this meat-suit and move on in my Journey. I am prepared and accepting of either step forward; I had to admit to myself the other day that on that 50/50 line with which I feel so comfortable, that there MIGHT be a single, infinitesimal dewdrop of “yeah, I still have shit I want to do down here, but hey, I’ve been upgraded!” And on the pin point of that question, Life is having a divine waltz with Death and neither is concerned with lower level events which reflect their constantly shipshafting dance of Power. Life is Death is Life is Death . . . This can ALL be seen to be more neatly expressed if you look at it through the Hindu pantheon. (Not here –grin.)
Finally, 73 Love and Desire are up and running and about to be erased from Stan Lee’s cartoon board. Grin. If you come in flying 52° off course, you’ll hear a Motown playlist – lol.) I have worried THAT last nerve unto death, believe me, and have recently accessed myself as no long loving, but Loving. From the specific to ‘the general’, and that takes work, when we can look and see what ‘the general’ are doing to our world. The descent into orgiastic self-hatred, self-loathing, money, power, bling – it’s like watching the lives of all the residents of Dante’s 9 levels of Hell on some sort of hallucinogenic VR device. I am SO astonished when I take the time to really SEE what I am looking at; a giant bowl of Jell-O® studded with every vice imaginable, slithering through the mix, devouring what remaining virtues may exist. Then throw in a big-budget FX blitz of evil & darkness & sex & blood & more evil. The violently insane are running the United States of America, and they want you to see it as business as usual. Wow, what a concept. Enough. I ask the Cosmos to let us ALL gaze through a magic glass today, and see something exceptional. Be Well! Be Zen. Be Blessed!!
