This marks the birth of a series I am doing on the Major Arcana of the Tarot. Originally Tarot cards were part of a game. In the late 1700's, the cards were believed to be an opening into the world of the occult. During the 1800's, people were ostracized for such beliefs and the Tarot cards were believed evil. Nowadays, the Tarot has become a tool used as a means to see into ourselves and what is influencing and guiding our thoughts and actions. The Fool is numbered 0, the number of unlimited potential, and doesn't actually have a place in the sequence of the cards. The Fool represents the beginning of a new stage of life. This is a card of potential, hope, and innocence. It's divinatory meaning is that the time is right for a change and a risk must be taken for a new phase to begin.
broadest flower of morning
blessed child of rosy-fingered dawn
beauty unbound by blunt-edged horizon
bathe me in streams of liquid warmth
fuel my soul with gentle fire.
Siren red sunrise
call forth day
I will humbly follow
warrior of sky and plain
winged messenger of almighty gods
wise counsel to kings of lands and mortal man
watch over my reckless wanderings
guide me along vines of sweetest wine.
Regal air steward
seek out our prey
I will honor
and I will slay!
open wide to life's wonders
embrace each passing moment of pleasure
endure each experience of pain
beat a meter to my rhythm
enlist a soul in harmony.
Dynamic little drummer
flex, stretch and bend
for I will love....and lose
and surely love again.
Like the grasses showing tender faces to each other, thus should we do, for this was the wish of the Grandfathers of the World.
