Card of the Week: Sep 26 – Oct 2, 2016:
You’re only given a little spark of madness, you mustn’t lose it.
~ Robin Williams
The Fool of the Witches Tarot deck is on a ledge, his foot so very close to the edge we feel almost scared for him. There is his trusty dog, a representation of the universe that is keeping him on the path.
The Fool looks up, and doesn’t care where he is going but he is happy in the moment.
The Fool in the major arcana of the Tarot, is numbered zero, which is the number of unlimited potential and unlimited possibilities. It can be considered the first card in the deck or the last, doesn’t really matter where he falls.
If you look at the card you can see the fool doesn’t seem to care where he’s been or where he is going, but he is jubilant and carefree. He doesn’t care what is behind him or in front, but only about the present moment.
When you see the Fool in a Tarot reading it represents a need to change things, to start fresh, or take a different direction.
This card is all about personal growth and development which means sometimes taking risks, not looking where you are going, but simply plunging in.
Tarot Card of the Week – May 27 – June 2
In the old Mythic Tarot (and the new version as well) The Fool is depicted as the God, Dionysus, child of Zeus and a mortal woman named Semele, a princess of Thebes.
He is the God of the Grape Harvest, the God of Parties, wine making, theater and fertility.
In this picture we see Dionysus taking a risk or just about to jump off a cliff. He is invincible, nothing can touch him.
When Dionysus was just a child, Queen Hera tried to kill him, but Zeus rescued Dionysus beating heart and transformed the child in the underworld making him be reborn to the world.
