Area 52

Many of us know Jordan Hoggard as the creator of “Tarot In the Land of Mystereum”. With unparalleled vision, and a wicked sense of humor, he gifted the Tarot world with a very edgy tool of self-empowerment. He has taken us many places with this deck … now he is taking us into Area 52! Oh … It isn’t this Area 52?  http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2007/11/area-52-the-oth/

<Regrouping>Ahem. “This” Area 52 is a daily resource, combining Tarot and astrology to help guide the Seeker through their day. My personal suggestion would be to keep a journal for the coming year, noting the wisdom in this book as it plays out in your life. And remember … we all have choices, we are the architect of our own life! (Yes, that was a nod to the architect in Jordan, and how he translates that into real life.) Our daily choices are the small steps that we take on manifesting our life purpose, and staying on our path.

In his Introduction, Jordan suggests that the Seeker pull out the cards for their day from their favorite deck as they read their daily TarotScopes … it gives a visual on the day ahead, to go with the written information. My own suggestion here is that you may also want to use a deck that you are just becoming familiar with, or a deck that you are perhaps “at odds” with. Or do it in comparative style, and use more than one deck. Jordan is sneaky … he also suggests that the Seeker may want to draw extra cards to expand those presented in the book each day.

“Monthly Court Card Couplings” are also discussed in the introduction. It is suggested that the Seeker combine them with the “Annual Earth Card”. Jordan gives the Seeker questions to ask about the “Monthly Court Cards”, and the theme that they present for the month. The Seeker is not just reading this material, nodding, and setting it aside. They are encouraged to put it to work in their life. The “Annual Earth Card” remains the same, while the “Monthly Court Cards” differ from month to month. (Note: Add the numbers of any given year together to determine the “Annual Earth Card”. For 2014, the “Annual Earth Card” is seven (2+1+4=7), which in the Tarot is the Chariot.) The Chariot will inform  the Seeker throughout the year 2014, in combination with the astrological sign that the Moon is in. You have to love digital books … Jordan has provided a link to the moon sign schedule for each month! Jordan has provided a detailed graphic that shows how the “Annual Earth Card” and the “Monthly Court Cards” work together.

For each month, there is a link to the Moon sign schedule, the New Moon and Full Moon are indicated by day and time, there is a weekly theme, a weekly word wisdom, a pair of Tarot cards for each day, along with a few words of wisdom about each day.

For example: The “Monthly Court Card Coupling” for January is the King of Pentacles and the Page of Swords. The weekly theme for the first week is “Refresh your mood so that the happiness in your home supports your established directions.” The weekly word wisdom is “quench”. The Tarot card pair for the 1st of January is the Eight of Cups and the Eight of Cups. The wisdom for the day for the 1st of January is “Starting out the new year on the hump day plateau, restart your whole week with fresh new feelings of emotional resolve. This is a day where what you have in place IS what fills your cup. Keep your eyes open today for new things that fill up your motivation tanks. Make today feel

like a really long day in all the right ways.”

There are three bonuses included at the end of this e-book:  “The Chariot & Birth-Placing Identity With The Sevens” (this is a Birth Card article, with links at the end to the eight other Birth Card articles that Jordan has written), “Be Fluid Don’t Go With The Flow – Resistance Is Futile”, and “Tarot Warm-Up Technique: Interview With the Spampires”.

I love Jordan’s work, and was pleased to see that he placed links to it at the end of this e-book. I am going to include them here:

Tarot Tid Bits

Tarot

This is a trial run … writing a Tarot blog. I write all the time, but my Tarot offerings tend to be in the form of reviews. I have a few things that I would like to share, so I am going to see if doing a weekly Tarot blog works out.

The first item that I want to share is information about upcoming BATS (Bay Area Tarot Symposium). There are not that many Tarot related conferences or symposiums here in the U.S. BATS has been ongoing for 22 years, under the auspices of the Daughters of Divination and Thalassa. This year it is being held at the Double Tree Hotel in San Jose, CA on Saturday, August 17th and Sunday, August 18th. Presenters include Pamela Steele (The Steele Wizard Tarot), Lon Milo DuQuette, Major Tom Schick (Major Tom’s Marseille Tarot), Valentina Burton (The Fortuneteller’s Guide To Success), Arisa Victor (Thursday Night Tarot), and Pamela Eakins (Tarot of the Spirit). More information, and how to register, can be found here. Thalassa has gone to a great deal of effort to keep this symposium going over the years. With the downturn in the economy, this has not always been easy. This event offers unique Tarot information, a change to meet and greet with other Tarot professionals, and my personal favorite … vendors booths! Penciling this into your calendar will certainly help support this event, and our Tarot tribe in general.

There is a very interesting Tarot deck that has come to my attention – the Portland Tarot. Conceived by artist Theresa Pridemore, with a LWB written by Jamie Morris, this deck looks to make a strong statement on Portland, and on living life large!

From my friend Mary Nale we have Attune Magazine – an on-line e-zine featuring Tarot,and other metaphysical subjects, articles, artwork, reviews, videos, articles and stories. The theme for October is the Wheel of Fortune. Check out the site for submission guidelines. Mary is also host to Attune Magazine Radio, where a wide range of metaphysical subjects is discussed. Her newest venture is a radio show entitled “Sessions”, co-hosted by Mary, my friend Brad Tesh, and myself. This is going to be offered twice monthly, on Tuesday nights. The first show will be Tuesday, July 16th, where we will be introducing ourselves, the show’s concept, and discussing visualization. Also hosted on Attune Radio is a Thursday mid-day show entitled Personal Empowerment For Your Soul with Maggie Lukowski and Jean Maurie Puhlman.

I also want to head you over to one of themost outstanding Tarot blogs that I have ever seen – Jordan Hoggard’s blog – The Land Of Mystereum – Tarot, voice, and Story. Incredible connections with the cards, complimented by amazing videos!

Enjoy!
