From the Halloween Tarot, Ace of Ghosts and The Fool.

The Ace of Ghosts is a beautiful card, overflowing with love, creativity, friendship and inspiration. You may find you need to channel this flow, or the abundance of emotion and feeling could be a bit overwhelming. Direct this wonderful flow of energy into something worthwhile, and it will be a time of  growth, prosperity and warm-fuzzy feelings.

The Fool is another joyful card, good vibes abound in this combination. The Fool is an adventurous free spirit, ready and willing to explore the world and all the possible delights it contains. In the true spirit of youth, he perceives no danger, only good times ahead.
The Fool can also be a bit of a rebel, not afraid to do things his way, to be seen as ‘different’. He is a free spirit, ready and willing to follow the wind, and his heart, in the pursuit of individuality, discovery and freedom.

There is such vibrancy here, the promise of new adventures, loves and friendship. The idea of stepping outside your comfort zone, of the norms society restricts us with, of daring to be true to yourself, to be different. There is much happiness to be found in living life on your own terms.
The Fool leads the way in ‘marching to the beat of your own drum’, are you courageous enough to follow his lead?

Again,  The Fool. Or, as she appears in the Wizards Tarot, The Initiate. 

Young, enthusiastic and ready to take on the world, we see The Initiate ready to begin her year and a day of study at Mandrake Academy.  She carries the bare essentials, all she will need to begin her training. This is commonly understood to be the Wand, Pentacle, Cup and Sword. She carries the raw ingredient of each suit, but is yet to be instructed in their use.

The Fool represents a beginning,  or a fresh start. A new job, new house, even a fresh outlook on life. You have complete faith in the universe at this time, knowing that this new path is just where you need to be. Follow your heart and enjoy the energy and excitement that comes with a new venture.

I love this card. The Fool holds the energy of my youth, young, wild, rebellious and free.

Under the influence of The Fool, feel free to take a chance today. Do something wild and spontaneous.  Forget what other people think, walk your own path, follow your destiny, your true calling in life. Don’t be afraid to walk away from that which no longer makes you happy. Follow your heart and you can’t go wrong.

The Fool is also about having faith and trust in the universe. What will be will be, have faith in this mantra and life is a lot less daunting. No matter which path you take, the road will always end just where it is supposed to.

0 The Fool

The following is my personal meditations on The Fool.

I use the term ‘she’, because that is how I identify with this archetype, but The Fool has both male and female elements.

So Below Tarot

So Below Tarot

Young, energetic, innocent, naive, full of wonder, excitement and a lust for the experiences of the world.

The Fool slings her pack over her shoulder and sets out to begin her journey, her loyal, faithful and trusty dog by her side.

She has a white rose tucked behind her ear, symbolizing her purity and innocence.

As she sets out on the road in search of experience, wisdom and all the world has to offer, she is bursting with excitement, her head full of the possibilities and adventures that lay ahead.

Whether she sets out to travel the world, or embark on a new path of learning, she is full of optimism and the spirit of adventure.

She is ready and willing to experience all that life has to offer.

She is young, free, wild, and rebellious.

Even a little revolutionary, she is as ready to leave her mark on and change the world, as much as she is eager to explore it.

She is random and intuitive, following only her heart.

She is full of promise and potential, with all life’s options laid out ahead of her.

She can do anything, be anything, her heart desires.

Every day is a new adventure, to be lived to its fullest potential.

She sets out secure in the mindset that ‘everything will be fine’.

She puts her trust in the universe as she takes her first steps out onto the open road.

The Sun shines down upon her, a symbol of her joy, happiness and the beginning of her journey.

0 Fool

In her naiveté, she sees not the possible dangers that may lay ahead.

Oblivious to all that could potentially do her harm.

The snake in the grass, the stranger in the dark, the treacherous and steep cliff edge, are all overlooked in her youthful inexperience and trust.

At times, she unwittingly flirts with danger, dances right along the edge of the precipice.

Yet she sees no danger, feels no fear, absorbed as she is in her dreams, hopes and plans for the road ahead.

Captivated by the beauty that surrounds her, blind to any inherent threat.

 

Her lone protector, her little dog, watches out for her as best he can.

He barks a warning, nips at her heels, hurries her back from the ledge.

Her furry little comrade keeps her safe, he also provides her company.

He is her only attendant on this long and sometimes perilous journey.

He represents her instinct, her intuition, that little voice that pipes up inside, that says there is danger afoot.

That something is amiss.

At times she will heed that little inner voice, that feeling that something is wrong.

At other times she will ignore it and carry on her way.

She will learn the hard way, to heed her intuitive voice.

Anne Stokes Tarot

The steep and rugged mountain range behind The Fool symbolizes pilgrimages and spiritual paths.

Intrinsically dangerous and treacherous, yet so very rewarding when, if, we reach the summit.

Mountains are also a metaphor for being close to the Gods.

In Greek mythology, Mount Olympus was the home of the Gods and Goddesses.

 

The Fool carries all her worldly belongings in a cloth tied to a staff.

She has with her all she will need for her journey.

What is in that bag?

The four elements.

The raw, undefined power of each suit.

The Aces.

At this stage of her journey, I don’t think she knows how to use these supplies, or even what purpose these life skills will serve.

But she does know, when the time comes, she will acquire the guidance and wisdom to be able to put these items to good use.

0 Initiate

The Fool is the only Tarot card that is not numbered.

This card is zero, infinity, unending.

We could slot this card in anywhere among the Tarot.

The essence of The Fool is in every card of the deck.

Each archetype is a teacher, a guide or a lesson she must learn.

Zero is infinite, never-ending, a loop, signifying re-incarnation and the infinite nature of our souls.

 

As The Fool takes the first steps of her spiritual development, there is an inkling in her soul, a knowing.

A sense that she has been here before, that she already holds, deep within, the answers that she seeks.

She only needs to be reminded, to re-discover her soul.
