Teach Me Tuesdays: Have You Been In Solitaire Confinement

“How do you build a house with playing cards? Start a club, win their hearts, give them tools and spades, and pay them with diamonds.” – Anonymous

You will have to follow the clues I have left behind via underlined hyperlink text today to discern if there are hidden esoteric elements weaved carefully in much of what may be presented to us within our constant absorption of monomyths. We’re all guilty of succumbing to the past time of finding ourselves enthralled with heroic journeys.

I’m not sure if I’ll be assigned as a juror, but if I am I suspect having a bit less free time to write and that there may be a mini hiatus. I can only manage so much in each 24 hour day with my many obligations.

🎲🎬📺🎮🎱

I am trying to ensure the latter part of my week is vacant for what has to be accomplished between jury duty as well as my part time cosmetology gig. So I have tried to fit in some compositions for this week before it gets a bit more chaotic with some unfinished chores I need to cross of on my list. While I’m generally not a Wiki fan I have resorted to utilizing one for some understanding and postulating.

For as much as I stopped binge watching Netflix and/or tell-a-lie-vision this week mom and I became consumed with Alice in Borderland. I get it because for me Alice in Wonderland has always been a favorite so much so that I also fell in love with CLAMP’s Miyuki-chan and American McGee’s Alice.

I am slightly frustrated if not dismayed to acknowledge I probably will be anxiously awaiting a Season 2 of Alice in Borderland. I do enjoy analyzing this story’s psychological twists/turns. Old habits I guess die hard when something catches our mind’s eye.

It is interesting that in tarot divination the suit of Hearts is the suit of Cups with Diamonds as Pentacles. Yet in this series we see something else being depicted (spoilers)!

But this morning I decided I wanted to divine a message with my charms. You can see the results below as well as some post rain garden updates. A little fun when we think of Alice who so desperately wanted to be Queen as well as enter the garden at the beginning of her own journey!

I actually have a Japanese costume (click for an image of the dress) that I have worn only twice themed after the Heart and Diamond card guards. It is packed away for whenever I decide to wear it again alongside another dress of a similar fashion style which is more gothic being navy blue almost black and white.

The dress I own was purchased in my late twenties from overseas for a pretty penny with import fees. It was custom made to my own measurements. Watching this series has made me reconsider if I would enjoy watching Squid Game or not. I am at present still unsure, but it  has been moved into the watch list.

Today the charms I have pulled are the passport, compass, and the solar system. We should take notice that our compass points East! I am not going to decode the entire message because I would like for my blog readers to work on finding answers as well.

“What playing cards are the best dancers? The King and Queen of Clubs.” – Anonymous

If these charms look familiar it is because they have turned up in previous divination blog posts before.

Passport: This document is often issued by a competent civil authority who grants permission to the individual named therein to travel in or out of a country as well as authenticating his/her right to protection while abroad.

We find that early use of the passport often indicated the right to leave one’s country. Therefore receiving a passport or getting it stamped represents approval.

Perhaps you will soon order or request something from an authority figure. Could a discussion with a boss where you are asking for some vacation time or even a pay raise and need approval be on the horizon?

The passport can signify receiving the green light to go ahead with your plans. If you are applying for a passport or visa this symbolizes a sign that you might be working towards an important interview or relocation request which will require you to go through an important process which can completely transform your life in the near future.

You are going to be traveling soon due to a job or other personal purposes. A new passport reflects new beginning chapters in your life. You will embark on completely new adventures with no past baggage or history. Before you lies a time where you will no longer let the past events drag you down from living the life you desire most.

Your passport photograph suggests that you will soon focus on wanderlust. You are signing up and committing to something and should consider doing it the earlier the better. A passport also indicates that you will soon have to prove your experience or knowledge. Be ready to share your abilities with others as this will open up new doors for you.

Passport/Visa and Tickets to?:

Compass: Can you locate your “true north” which symbolizes the moral compass? This your personal GPS guidance/navigation system meant to assist you in traversing over troubled seas and the unfamiliar paths you have taken or will take. As established this compass is pointing East. The below links and PDF may help you out.

Discerning the Compass’ Messages:

Solar System: The pursuit of studying space through astrology/astronomy or any number of other occult pursuits may be represented here. By knowing or learning your natal chart as well as adventuring into speculative arenas such as thought experiments one might begin to know themselves or gain further insights into the world which surrounds them.

Suggestions could include visiting a planetarium, purchasing a telescope, going camping to avoid city lights which obscure the constellations from view, and/or developing further study into esoterics, astrophysics, and so forth.

Are you trying to outrun Death or live in the moment? Or are we on the path of Nun? What propels you forward; fear (FOMO), love, or adrenaline?

Death’s connection with Scorpio would be my Western/Tropical 8th House of what our relationships will bring to us and how we can get the most out of them. Its natural ruling planet Saturn which stands for equality and justice teaches that the 8th House stands for equal opportunity. It places sex, death, and rebirth on the same playing field. Death and rebirth are a part of life.

Failed relationships lead to new ones, career changes, and a new haircut all indicate this aspect of rebirth/regeneration. It is here that we transform our insecurities into strengths. The change that we experience through this house drives us to look deeper into the hidden aspects of our self and explore life.

Shared resources such as inheritance, insurance, taxes, and alimony all fall under the realm of the 8th House. This house addresses financial and physical support as well as emotional and spiritual support. Yet in mundane spheres the 8th House can represent the debts, losses of battles, import/export, and death rate of a country.

However, in Vedic/Sidereal Scorpio would be my 2nd House of speech representing one’s capacity for verbal expression. Here one can receive acclaim in the fields of communication either verbal or written. While one may learn many languages the 2nd House also speaks to immediate family, wealth profile, and the affluence of one’s childhood depicting our virtues/vices.

If we were to observe this in mundane spheres the 2nd House can represent the wealth of a nation by indicating their financial welfare or economic matters.

May your Tuesday be triumphant! 🏆🎯

Well despite thinking the beans were dead and attempting to compost we can safely assess that more purple, green, and yellow beans are on the way. Bumper crop in the making.
The non triple digit weather and rain in Texas has meant the crepe myrtle is flowering a second time as well.
If the garlic chives get any larger I fear they make break the above ground bed. The honey bees are still actively at work!
If anyone can help identify the above weed I’d be grateful to them. It has some seed pods and white/yellow flowers. I’m not sure what this is growing alongside my beans.
Our zinnias have so many blossoms about to open that it’s overwhelming!

PS: I managed to carefully remove the two dresses from my closet where they remain in perfect condition and snag a photo of them. As seen below for the curious at heart as to what I’m describing in the costuming that I acquired in my twenties from importing overseas fashion for what was hundreds of dollars to be custom made is two dresses I’ve worn maybe once or twice only in my lifetime.

Why? I don’t really have anything that I attend anymore for which I would don this attire. Additionally at the cost they were I’m dreadfully trying to ensure they do not get damaged in any way whatsoever. Therefore when I have worn either dress I’m exceptionally OCD for fear of getting anything on them or seeing anything get ripped/torn. I put too much value upon them!

The Alice in Wonderland Hearts and Diamonds card guard was worn with stockings that had the entire suits on my legs including the Spades as well as the Clubs. It was worn for Halloween circa age 29 when I graduated beauty school for Halloween to my place of employment where no one could comprehend who I was meant to even be. Everyone was utterly baffled by what my costuming even signified guessing the theme/character wrong!
