The Fool

The Tarot series continues!

The Fool card represents the individual on the journey through life. We start life innocent, guileless, vulnerable; in the same way, when we start the conscious journey to enlightenment we are equally innocent and open to influence. The rest of the Major Trump cards represent the trials and experiences the individual goes through on the journey. The Fool is neither good nor evil; he or she is open to experience and ready to learn and become and is open to influences both right or wrong. We all travel the path with eyes and arms wide open, come what may.

And of course the perfect music for this card is Lennon and McCartney's "The Fool on the Hill". If I remember my music history correctly they wrote this specifically about the Fool card. It makes sense to me!

  1. A friend of mine keeps threatening to 'read' my cards but hasn't been forthcoming yet. I suspect this one might be a forerunner.

  2. ...I'm glad you've brought back your Tarot card series. I love the artwork.

  3. one of my favorite cards to get in a reading.....not surprising!

    to the leaps!

  4. Ah Roy, like the Fool I travel the road in search of enlightenment, which I am sure I would find if I didn't keep stopping at the pub on the way.

  5. WOW! 'It's Like Me Like Looking In A Mirror!
