So! above is the card of THE FOOL. Is this person really a fool or not? What is he doing in the picture? and did you know that as the card is numbered '0' (zero) it can sit at the END of the Major Arcana or at the beginning? Why is he on the edge of a cliff with a hanky packed and why does he have a dog biting his ankle? what expression is on his face? Is it yellow in the top half of the card because its a sunshiny day ? why is he wearing boots instead of shoes and why is he holding a rose? Do you ever look at the Tarot carefully and wonder why certain things are depicted there?
There are MANY Tarot decks however. Pictorially they will all reflect differently according to the designers view /ideas of how that card feels to them. The deck I am working with for this series is RIDER WAITE. It is the deck I use the most and feel comfortable with. There are many details on the internet as to the origin of the Tarot and that is not part of my series to go into. I want to show you what I feel philosophically about each card, not so much focused on the precise meanings that are text written.
I will be adding more elements to the Fool so always check back to see more thoughts/projections and I will also add the GENERAL MEANINGS for those who are learning. All coming up so please come back and visit!
