THE JOURNEY OF THE FOOL THROUGH THE TAROT - DAY ONE: THE FOOL
Greetings Core Spirit Family
I was meditating this morning; contemplating how I could continue to add value to the world by sharing my gifts and passions; so decided that I am going to take you on a little journey into the world of Tarot...My World!
To me personally; I have found that Tarot allows me to manifest, and when I utilise the energies given to me on any day, I always come out on top...
I usually first find the numerological number for the date and time of the reading. My first step to set the ambience using the current energy available to me.
My second step is to look on the Astrological Calendar to see what energy The Heavens are offering me on that day. I read the Transits and Aspects and begin to look for Synchronicities.
My third step is to meditate with the cards in my hand, requesting a clear, detailed message for the intention that I have set for the day. I then cut the cards into three and put them together again; and begin shuffling whilst still meditating.
I do not choose the cards; I only read the 'jumper cards'. These are the cards that fall/fly/jump out of the pack whilst I am shuffling and place them into a specic spread that assists me for a specific reading. And then The Magic Begins.
I never actually had any interest in The Tarot (I was led to believe that this is the workings of The Devil. Three years later, I yet to find the 'evil' within these mystical treasures.) The Tarot found its' way into my life and I have never looked back!
So here were are; you, me and the magic of " THE FOOLS JOURNEY"
The Fool's Journey is a metaphor for the journey through life. Each major arcana card stands for a stage on that journy - an experience that a person must incorporate to realize his wholeness. These 22 descriptions are based on the keywords for each major arcana card. The keywords are highlighted in the text. A card's number is in parentheses.
We begin with the Fool (0), a card of beginnings. The Fool stands for each of us as we begin our journey of life. He is a fool because only a simple soul has the innocent faith to undertake such a journey with all its hazards and pain.
At the start of his trip, the Fool is a new-born - fresh, open and spontaneous. The figure on Card 0 has his arms flung wide, and his head held high. He is ready to embrace whatever comes his way, but he is also oblivious to the cliff edge he is about to cross. The Fool is unaware of the hardships he will face as he ventures out to learn the lessons of the world.
The Fool is a card of new beginnings, opportunity and potential
Even though you don’t know exactly where you are going, you are being called to commit yourself and follow your heart, no matter how crazy this leap of faith might seem to you. Now is a time when you need to trust where the Universe is taking you.
The Fool encourages you to have an open, curious mind and a sense of excitement. Throw caution to the wind and be ready to embrace the unknown, leaving behind any fear, worry or anxiety about what may or may not happen. This is about new experiences, personal growth, development, and adventure.
The time is NOW! Take that leap of faith, even if you do not feel that you are ready to embrace change.
Numerology of card: The number 0 is a very mystical number that represents God and Eternity. It's a blank slate from which anything can be created, a cycle that begins, ends and then begins again. It's perfect for the Dreamer who can reinvent him/herself by simply having the faith to do so.
Astrology of the card: This card is associated with the Planet Uranus, it's a planet of creativity, independence and innovation; it encourages us to be our own unique selves. It's associated with the energy of setting us free from old ideas or situations that no longer serve us.
Sending blessings, love and light to All.
