The Fool

Unconventionailty, Spontaneity, Risk

The Spirit of Ether

My Fool is dressed in Jester’s garb with a crown of laurel leaves & a red feather. He carries his possessions in a bundle over his shoulder & leans on a staff. He is oblivious to the fact that he appears to be about to walk over a cliff. His dog (my mad rescue Max) is jumping up as if to warn him.

I am The Fool. I like most people, spent periods of my life wandering aimlessly with no real thought to my eventual destination. In this card The Fool seems un-aware that he is about to fall into the abyss. The colours in the card represent the myriad stimuli that distract The Fool at every turn. The Fool is spiritually aware but follows aspects of all systems rather than organised religion. His napsack is filled with accumulated things deemed ‘important’, unfinished books & papers. The truth is he is definitely on the spectrum. He is unable to quite exist in the real world, he dances to his own tune. His view of life is very different from other peoples & he finds it impossible to focus on one thing at a time. Everything seems equally important. He is a dreamer & a visionary, an inspired lunatic. The Fool is almost certainly on a different frequency to the majority & this should be remembered should this card form the significator in a reading.

The Fool was the first card that I had tattooed, he literally got under my skin.

The Fool is the spark of Tarot, where life begins. He is a dreamer & a visionary, an inspired lunatic. The Fool is almost certainly on a different frequency to the majority, he is a maverick. My inner fool is struggling with being told what to do in the current climate, he exists beyond limitations.

Whenever I step through the door of my Tarot imagination & encounter The Fool it is always the same, dazzled by the sun, moving erratically, he is distracted by everything.  His dog jumps repeatedly trying to warn of the dangerous precipice only inches away.  

Except today it was different …

Taking his hands away from his eyes The Fool locked my gaze, leaned towards me & whispered: “You have been given a pause, a second chance. I forever stand on the cliff edge, deciding whether to take a leap of faith, now it is you who cannot afford to not grasp this unprecedented opportunity. All bets are off, you have no choice but to have a go, take a chance. Don’t come out of this enforced reinvention unchanged, then it would be you who really is The Fool”

The Fool is the guardian of the unknown, the architect of your future. It begins, and ends, with him. Do not be drawn in by his madness, do not pity him. He is contented in this crazy world, he thrives in chaos. The question is, can you?
