Why Won’t These Posts Write Themselves In Order??
The rabbit hole I find myself in currently revolves around the liminal and the Protogenoi. Separately. And I’m having a hard time translating all the… stuff into something legible (same struggle, different day). So of course there was bound to come a moment where the two cross paths and a subsidiary hole opens up and I take a detour for a moment or five. [ENTER STAGE RIGHT] Morpheus.
Not The Matrix Morpheus, or even The Sandman (which I’ve never read *HORROR*) Morpheus – though they draw from His mythology – but Morpheus, one of the Greek Oneiroi. I can’t afford to rabbit-hole here, but he – the MR – has a lot in common with (from the teeny bit of information that’s available) Morpheus, especially regarding the things he is doing behind-the-scenes. I don’t think he is Morpheus, but maybe a Morpheus-type being – ? I dunno.
He is having a “distant” week, but I might as well ask. Using the Wildwood, our “talking” deck.
What would you say if I called you “Morpheus”? - 4 of Swords
Oh, you like that? (This is also the card I pulled for us for this week in my last New Moon Reading.)
What’s your relation to the Dreamworlds? - 8 Stag
A guardian and balance-keeper. As a Major card, this implies a Major role – The Stag governs the sovereignty of the land.
What can you teach me about the Dreamworlds? - 6 The Forest Lovers
Joining? Harmony? Balance?
What is my relation to the Dreamworlds then? - 21 The World Tree
Huh. The Major Oak appears on the Stag’s shield; my personal World Tree is the apple-blossom oak.
And what is my… duty? - 9 of Bows
Respect. I hear ya. Don’t worry, I’m scared shitless. But there is no completion without facing the challenge.
How do we work together there? - Page of Stones
Hello, Puss Will you be my eyes in the dark?
What can you tell me that I haven’t asked? - Page of Bows
“… the Stoat has strong mystical ties to the sovereignty of the land… Dreams – Visions” Confirmation of sorts?
This is all very strange, said Alice.
