One of my favorite Tarot people – Jordan HIggard (“Tarot of the Mystereum”. “Tarot In the Land Of The Mystereum”) has a new blog up –http://jordanhoggard.wordpress.com/. I am incredibly impressed with a series that he is currently running entitled “Birth-Placing Identity”. Essentially these are birth cards, using the dual birth card system. In this system, the Fool stands apart, and the birth cards are developed as the higher and lower vibration for the numbers one through nine.
Currently the following numbers up:
Number One: Sun/Wheel/Magician http://jordanhoggard.wordpress.com/2011/04/07/ones-birth-placing-clarity/
Number Three: World/Hanged Man/Empress http://jordanhoggard.wordpress.com/2011/04/07/tarot-birth-card-identities-the-threes/
Number Five: Temperance/Hierophant http://jordanhoggard.wordpress.com/2011/04/09/fives-birth-placing-identity/
Number Seven: Tower/Chariot http://jordanhoggard.wordpress.com/
Anyone who has ever met Jordan, or read any of his work, knows that they have a very special time in store with these blogs! I am going to quote from the blog because Jordan explains this much better than I ever could!
“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 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 as triggers to remind one how the Birth Cards can integrate an overall expression of a Birth Card combo in a single voice. 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 on my website and YouTube channel – check out links below. 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 Preludes on your own for the Aces through the Tens, and as well Your Royal Court characters.
Jordan discusses the energy of the cards, adds a link to an incredibly well done video on You Tube, includes scans of the cards (one card on either side of a scan of the card back, which shows lovely “window” symbology”), and shows the reader “how” each birth card combo functions in “real life”.
Definitely a blog to follow! HInt – If you go there, look for the link to Jordan’s discussion of the Death card. There are some true gifts there!
