The setting for this journey follows an old-time fun house like the one found in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire, UK.
The Seer of Tarosophy Towers has me riding in the Moon Carriage through the tunnel. The deck I choose for this turn on the Ghost Train is the Tarot of the Hidden Realms. The card shows a woman crawling away from the Moon, away from the illusions cast in its light. In my hemisphere, the direction she travels is North away from the healing energies of the Sun. She is traveling deeper into the darkness of the illusions she wishes to escape.
The seer speaks:
You are called to recognize illusionary ideals and must learn to follow your instincts
A message came in from the Universe shortly after, in the form of a podcast, regarding the illusions I’ve created for myself:
The question comes from the illusion that we are separate beings with an identity neither of which is true. And there will always be questions until that is realized. The only question is the universe asking what the Fuck am I?
The coincidence, if one can call it that, is not lost on me. The focus of the internal work that I’ve done has been about the illusions that assist my daily being. As each illusion reveals itself, may I be less likely to repeat that illusion in a different setting.
I have chosen to work with the energies of the most recently departed. Dwelling on the far past will be of no use because I know very little about those ancestors and cannot assign courts
I picked the cards for these important women based on Liber 777 by Aleistar Crowley
I pull the cards for the Spooky Pipe Organ. These are the cards that play the background music that lives in my mind.
I spent the the day contemplating the cards
Once the prep work is completed, manifestation happens quickly unless one puts a damper on the process. This happens when one becomes content with the gathering of intel and knows that forward movement can happen at any time. Complacency sets in because of the early successes feel like victory and moving forward into the unknown is still scary. Too many people get stuck in the illusion of completion when in reality they have only just started to move forward. Once one is able to dispel the illusion, that person’s light will shine for all to see. And that dim spark that seems so far away will grow into a light that shines for all.
Today I work the planchette. The carriage slowly begins to move. The path is a dizzying circle that leads to the King of Cups, the one chosen for my mother. The movement stops and I ask the questions again. I wait patiently. The carriage card suddenly moves straight down picking up the card directly below, the Star. I can image both women looking at each other and shaking their heads at my denseness.
I look again at the Fear cards and I reflect on what I have allowed to hold me back.
The final cards are:
Temperance Discipline and choice create the balance that flows through your life. Resist being controlled by your circumstance by maintaining control of yourself
