If you are fortunate enough to receive this card in a reading, then you are nearing the destination of your journey. You can slowly dust yourself off and tend to any scratches or injuries incurred during the trip. You have made it and you are definitely on the right path! The Divine is working with you and are currently righting any wrongs that you may have experienced. If you hit another bump at this ending stage, then it is because the Universe is trying to get your attention and wants you to be gracious. The scales are tipping in your favour.

The We Are The World card represents the need for all of us to share the riches and gifts the world gives us in order to nurture and feed the whole. The continuation of sharing eventually leads to the acknowledgement that we are all one collective. We begin to embrace our humanity and with that comes peace and joy, which leads to ultimate prosperity. This is depicted by the people holding hands and dancing with each other. If you receive this card, you must ask yourself…are you being selfless? Am I contributing to the collective?
This card takes on the likeness of The Hermit from the traditional Rider-Waite Smith. If you receive this card, you need to ask yourself if you’ve been accurately identifying the true difference between loneliness and aloneness. We are rarely ever alone, but oftentimes experience loneliness. We feel lonely when we are misunderstood or feel unsupported by those in which we seek approval. When we can overcome being lonely and realise that we only need support and understanding from ourselves, the need for approval from others begins to fade. This is when we enter a state of aloneness. When we enter this state we begin to find our own inner light, and the more faith we have the brighter it shines. We must trust this light, as it is our inner wisdom guiding us on journey.
If you are fortunate enough to receive this card, the the Divine wants you to remember that life isn’t as serious as you may think it is. If you sat with yourself and asked yourself, “what’s the worst that can happen?” it will always end with ‘death’. However, we must remember that we’ve all died before and that the act of dying takes instant. It is simply a blip in time, time of which is a construct created by the seriousness of man. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Instead of spending all of your time worrying yourself into a grave, take a step back and see the joy that surrounds us all. This card reminds us to have fun and to not take everything and ourselves so seriously. When we begin to enjoy life we ignite a light inside ourselves that acts like a beacon that attracts all things positive to us.
Card Deck: Osho Zen Tarot by Osho, Ma Deva Padma
Today’s draw was The Fountain from the The Fountain Tarot. In this particular deck, this card is an addition to the Major Arcana representing both oneness and nothingness at the same time.
In my opinion, this is what we should all aspire to. When you achieve the true realization that we are all indeed one, all part of the collective as a whole and without separates, then you can reach a state of nothingness. A state of nothingness being where the trivial stresses and challenges of life no longer has as big of an impact on you.
It is this state that brings about the inner Zen that we all possess, but so often lose. I recognize that this is quite ambitious, but nonetheless is that which we should strive for.
I personally adore this card, and it is my favourite out of all the tarot decks I’ve come across. Below is a spread that I created from the inspiration provided to me from The Fountain Tarot.
Top (fixed): The Fountain. This is a fixed position and it should always be The Fountain. If you don’t have this deck, pick a card in your current deck that you closely relate to the idea of oneness.
Before the reading, take this card out and put it in is designated position at the top.
Bottom Middle: You and what you currently represent.
5 cards on the Right: The right represents your internal emotions and unconscious. These cards will show what you are doing right or what you should work on in order to reach The Fountain.
5 cards on the Left: The left represents everything in your physical world – your conscious world. These cards will show what you are doing right or what you should work on in the material world in order to reach The Fountain.
The cards should work themselves upward building a ‘staircase’, which is the path to oneness and nothingness.
