Words, Sigils, Squiggles and Wishes?

Reprogramming the unconscious?
18. The Moon — Deviant Moon Tarot
Hmm ... a SPACEship maybe?-)
The Language of Tarot - The Moon
2018? Tarot Card #18
It's funny how things seem to come together all at once in my life, as if I'm standing at the intersection of a cosmic crossroads.
I was going to write a post about Mr. Squiggle (the man from the moon) just after I had finished reading Sarah Wilson's book 'First, We Make the Beast Beautiful', where Sarah mentioned watching 'Mr. Squiggle' when growing up (as did I) and how everyone has to learn to be their own Miss Jane (Miss Rebecca and Miss Roxanne in later versions, Miss Pat and Miss Gina in earlier versions) to your jumpy Mr. Squiggle.
Sarah was writing about that spacey, moon-walky feeling she would experience at times in her life in the chapter from the book titled 'Bipolar'.
Deep-Fried Happenstance?
Anxiety: Why the gender gap in Australia's most common mental illness?
John (Moon?-) Lander?
Can neuro-linguistic programming help you retrain your brain with language?
Hmm ... words, SPELLing and scribbling seem like magick at times, don't you think?
I wasn't going to bother writing my Mr. Squiggle post after thinking about doing it for weeks, because in my mind something was missing.
But after reading Gordon White's 'The Chaos Protocols' chapter last night titled 'Wish Granting Squiggles', where Gordon writes about launching sigils and having a space to do so, how could I not see the Mr. Squiggle in the room?-) 
"Mr. Squiggle (originally also known as Mr. Squiggle and Friends) is an Australian children's television series, and the name of the title character from that ABC show.
The show was presented on television in many formats, between its inception on July 1, 1959 and 1999, from five-minute slots to a one-and-a-half-hour variety show featuring other performers, and has had several name changes, originally airing as Mr. Squiggle and Friends.
At its height, the program was one of the most popular children's programs in Australia and toured theatre and conventions, entertaining several generations who grew with the program.
It became one of the longest-running children's programs on Australian television."
Mr. Squiggle is like a cross between a clown and The Fool to me.
Norman Hetherington
 and Mr. Squiggle
Mr. Squiggle reminds me of
Thoth for some reason;-)
Thoth, Writing, Books, Magazines and SubSCRIPTions?
"Mr. Squiggle, the central character was created by cartoonist and puppeteer Norman Hetherington, and the character first appeared on the Children's TV Club on ABC TV, but was spun off into his own programme which first aired on 1 July 1959.
Hetherington voiced and operated all of the show's puppets, while his wife Margaret wrote the scripts.
The basic premise of the show remained the same: children wrote in with their
"squiggles" and Mr. Squiggle would turn them into recognisable drawings by connecting lines with his pencil nose.
More often than not, the picture would be drawn upside down (Hetherington manipulated the puppet from above by viewing the drawing upside down), and then Mr. Squiggle would gleefully declare, "Upside down! Upside down!"—asking his assistant to turn the picture the right way up and reveal the completed drawing."
As above, so below?
"Mr. Squiggle, the central character is a marionette with a pencil for a nose, who visits his friends from his home at 93 Crater Crescent on the Moon, flying to Earth in his pet rocket (named Rocket).
In every episode he would create several pictures from "squiggles" sent in by children from around the country.
Mr. Squiggle is a cheery, scatter-brained character who is often distracted and occasionally goes for "space-walks", leading his assistant to calm him down and get him to focus on the task of drawing."
93 Crater Crescent on the Moon?!
93 (Thelema)
"Other puppet characters that appeared in the show includedBlackboard, the grumpy blackboard that Mr. Squiggle uses for an easel, whose catchphrases are "Hurry up", "Hmmph", "Double hmmph" and "Booorrriing".
Gus the Snail, who had a TV for a shell and later, a flower pot, often tells "Knock, Knock" jokes.
Bill the Steam Shovel, who likes to tell corny jokes and belch steam (talcum powder) out of his "nose" when he laughs.

I would think Gordon White might call that squiggle drawing above a "Robofish" for some reason maybe?-)
Bill Steam-shovel or
BS maybe as a magickal sigil name?-)
Shovel Yourself Out of the S#it
Maybe I'm just connecting all of the dots wrong in this post and have it all upside-down here when drawing my own conclusions about the magic of Mr. Squiggle, but it's fun in a synchromystic sense to draw those conclusions I think boys and girls, don't you?-)
I like to think my childhood was more magical growing up because of watching Mr. Squiggle.
Maybe us Aussie adults who grew up with this pencil-nosed puppet need an adult version of the show called something like 'Mr. Sigil' (the man from the stars)?-)
Mr. Squiggle's footprints that is;-)
Maybe I'm thinking of another puppet when it comes to growing noses and wealth, but I'll shoot for the moon with a financial sigil of my own that I'll launch from my own space after I finish reading Gordon's book.
I like how Gordon calls devotees of chaos magick, chaotees.
Anyway, time for me to disappear, as I have work to do.


  1. Darren...

    Interesting sync with this post and my recent post, where we both are riffing on Tarot cards...

    Cheers... - JH

  2. I've actually got about ten screens up at the moment on my computer and your post is one of them jack, but as soon as I started reading it something came up to distract me and I started working on about three other new future posts.
    I will get back to reading your post though at some point today Jack.

  3. Actually Jack it was a post about Jack/Leo/Rose that distracted me when I followed a link back from my blog to this old post of Richard Arrowsmith's that I don't recall having read before -

    Seems kind of relevant to 2018 'The Year of the Dog', too, I think.

    I started watching his 'When in Rome' Vimeo and it got me thinking, but what doesn't get me thinking when it comes to synch?

  4. The Jack, the lion & the "thorny" rose.
    Per your: "but as soon as I started reading it something came up to distract me" ...the hand of synchronicity waits for no one! (know one!).

  5. Also... CK over at Secret Sun has his: "Roses are Red" post to add to the synchro-soup!

    - JH

  6. Yeah, I read Chris Knowles post last night.
    He has been doing some interesting work all year as far as synchromysticism goes.
    I have a few "Rose" posts which will examine some old sych-head's posts and be linking them to more recent events coming up soon, too.
