The Descent Into Dissent

This is political. This is also about psychic weirdness. This is about asking a good question that is unfortunately the wrong question. This is where I am today.

From my private journal on Monday 1/4/2021

(7:50 am) I woke up at 2:30 am with a panic attack and certainty that I should ~not~ try and start streaming on January 20th.  I could not get back to sleep.  I did everything I could to calm down because I was practically hyperventilating.  I am proud of my strategies and they helped: 4fold breathing, LBRP, hot shower, hot chocolate, listening to more Queering The Tarot audio, while laying with eyes closed, and then getting up at 6:30 am.

But I still feel off and weird and anxious, even after some relaxing time on the tarot forums.

Signifier: Is this about -me/health or about Nation/politics (?) ~ 9 of Worlds~ 



1. What is going to happen on February 20th: 14. Temperance 

There is going to be an inauguration that will take place without domestic terrorism, martial law, or anything outside of the reasonable norms.  The Inauguration will go ~fine~

2. How is this going to happen: Son of Water (Prince of Cups)

In this case, Prince of Cups represents Biden-Harris/team; the energy of the 16 archetypes that they have right now and are bringing to the table is The Mediator (INFP)

{{skips notes typed to self from 16Personalities on the INFP; you can read them there}}

So the Inauguration is not the issue.

3. Why is this going to happen: 2 of Earth (Change) :
For all of his posturing, his threats, and the media attention, Donald Trump is not as dangerous as I think he is.  He does not have the power, he is crazy, and he’s not as popular as I’m being told he is.  Good things -are- coming.

4. What is my role in this? 9 of Water (Despair):
This is about me.  This is me having a panic attack because I don’t think I will be ready in time.  This is simply about me feeling stage fright over that stream and there ~might~ be some asthma/health stuff between now and then, I might not feel great that day.  Okay.

I really do hope my reading about the Inauguration on the 20th is right; I really -want- things to go smoothly and we see CHANGE.

I want Joe Biden to hold to the archetype of the Mediator! I want an administration that brings what INFP brings to the table.

…But with hindsight, I understand perfectly fine that whatever you want to call my panic attack/voice telling me that I should not try to become a Twitch streamer in 3 weeks? The flash of something VERY BAD happening on Capitol Hill relating to the presidency… it wasn’t about the Inauguration specifically and that even will (hopefully) be exactly what my cards promised: Temperance Incarnate.

I was given a warning and time to prepare myself mentally/emotionally by the Powers That Be about yesterday.

11-6-21 The Capitol Breach

Yesterday? Capitol Hill law enforcement allowed Trump supports who commit an act of domestic terrorism as part of an attempted Insurrection involving senators, congressmen, and those tourists.

When it began, I was feeling ~jubilant~ over democratic wins in Georgia, in crowing about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and a little bouncy. But I also felt ~compelled~ to start watching Congress deal with the Electoral College. It had been years since I had C-Span on. But I felt a compulsion, an urgency to watch C-Span & C-Span2 with Twitter open and I was listening to each speaker and adding names to a list: those who were interfering in Biden’s lawful nomination and those who were not. I was very political activist mode and feeling empowered and self-righteous…….

…. and then that turned to shock and rage. NOTHING got done from 11 am PST to 11 pm PST by me except tweeting more in 12 hours than I had since joining Twitter in mid September, talking briefly in Discord to friends and watching the news feeds…

9-11 was a terrifying heartwrenching day. 9-11 was a worse personal experience for me as a human being and clairsentient. Yesterday, the Capitol Breach? It didn’t scare me to the core the same way. It. PISSED. ME. OFF.

And I’m still angry. I am outraged on the behalf of a dozen different groups most especially the all-black janitorial staff left cleaning up the mess left behind by racist good ol boys who’d been allowed to waltz in, had been invited in by President Trump who was throwing a hissy fit because Vice President Trump rejected joining him in treason and was, in fact, going to do his job at the end of the electoral college count and announce Joe Biden as the lawfully elected president of the United States.

I won’t be starting to teach tarot on Twitch.TV on January 20th. I ~might~ start teaching tarot on Twitch.TV on February 7th or 14th but I’m no longer going to advertise. Because I don’t think right now is at all the right time for me to try and pull in a diverse community of tarot readers/occultists together and manage it.

I might be way too busy being an Anti-Fascist and fighting MAGA. I might be too busy writing and spellcrafting. I would ~really~ like to raise money via tarot content creation to support causes like local charities and food banks. And trust me, if people end up donating to me via this webpage, I will gleefully use that money to help people. But I think right now? I need to just help people- and I need to be more political activist and a magician who would make Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell proud.

Because they used their magick for their country. They used it to fight a war.

The War For Democracy (And Democratic Socialism) in the United States really, truly, utterly began yesterday. 1-7-21 was the beginning. And while I’m sure I’m sounding a bit bonkers, talking about wielding magick like I was Harry with a wand. No, it doesn’t work that way. But magic, especially psychoteric Mind Magick is potent stuff and both sides are using it. Most of those using it would never call it magick.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz aren’t half as dangerous as Josh Hawley. And yes, oh yes, the papers (the ones people like ME read) are full of outrage and want to see them all punished. Lots of people are angry, the mood in the country as its being presented ~seems~ to assure things are going to only go better for my ideological side from here but I’m not going to assume that. Instead? As a humanitarian, an activist, and a magician, I’m going to do everything in my power to push my society HARD-LEFT because the HARD-RIGHT will KILL.US.ALL and I’m done living a life where I don’t fight to stop them.

Conclusion



My time as part of a Twitter-mob yesterday was long. Let me end this blog entry with a few posts from myself. The first was the one that was most heard, reposted and imo, the most essential for us as a nation

You don’t have to share ~my~ flavor of politics to agree with this one. You only have to live outside of the MAGA reality and believe they are fundamentally wrong about the US election stolen from Donald Trump and want to see his attempts to steal it from Joe Biden be punished to the fullest extent of bipartisan and nonpartisan law.

“Sedition is not conservatism. The rest of the GOP has a moral and ideological imperative to punish them all and ensure this never happens again. The cost of failure to do it themselves will be much higher and the window to act is short.” – TLoracular

(on the claims that the Trump-supporting Capitol breachers were antifa)


“… everyone knows that the Far-Left was way too busy celebrating the GA/Senate win and talking about what that meant to be doing anything else at that time and place.. right?? You guys are just selling headlines, right?? @WeAreSinclair : – TLoracular

(on some people trying to promote themselves/their brands in the middle of everything else going on)


“please. Give us at least 12 more hours of just be seethingly outraged and not in the mood for wellness industry capitalism waving verbal snake oil.” -TLoracular

“What is making all of us (right, left, and center) so CRAZY over Trump+TrumpCult is they aren’t just lying like normal politicians, they -are- delusional and believe their bullshit; even Pence/McConnell realize how screwed they are tonight and don’t know what to do.” -TLoracular

“They mislearned the lessons of 9-11. They forgot that we only gave up so much out of fear of terrorism and the Bush administration got all the cooperation.

Today, THEY were the terrorists…. and it will be the Biden administration that gets all the cooperation.” -TLoracular

(on the death of the white female capitol breacher who was shot by law enforcement)


“We’ve lost hundreds and thousands of unarmed people of color because scared/angry cops pulled triggers when they shouldn’t have. Those who protested were brutalized MORE.

Maga-folks? The POTUS invited you onto Capitol Hill today. He said it would be wild. You made it so.” -TLoracular
