Tarot is the documentation of the Fool’s Journey. We are the Fool. It journals the ups and downs of life and forecasts the path that we all must take in order to reach our most highest of selves.
The Fool is the beginning – zero is the number of infinite potential. He is at the beginning of his journey – he stands at the precipice. He is Spirit before his physical birth.
He holds a white rose, the rose of purity, innocence, and perfection. We are all perfect and have a gift to bring into the world; however, the stems on the rose symbolize that understanding our perfection will be a painful process.
The dog symbolizes the carnal aspect of humans. We are dualistic – both divine and animalistic driven by instinctual urges. We must make friends with our animal side, the ego. But be mindful! If not prepared, that animal can turn your life upside down.
He carries a knapsack filled with memories of past lives and tools needed for the life and journey that is about to begin. He tells us that we already carry the tools we need to get through life so try not to over-analyze and always trust.
Live your life the best you can. What it means to spiritual is to be alive.
Love and Light,
