The Spacious Tarot – The Fool

The Fool often appears when a new adventure beckons. In The Spacious Tarot it is quite an unusual card as it doesn’t have any kind of human or animal representation of the Fool. In some ways this frees our imagination to be completely unfettered when visualising our next steps, and it allows us to use this card in a technique called Pathworking.

This is a simple process where we enter a meditative state and then imagine that we are actually stepping into the scene on the card. We can then explore the card whilst in a relaxed state, and notice any symbols, words, associations etc which arise.

As the Fool card often speaks of new beginnings, adventures and journeys, and taking a leap of faith, perhaps we could use the summit of the mountain depicted in this card, as a metaphor for a jumping off point? If we, in our imagination, go to the edge, and peer over the precipice, what do we see below? Does this give us any guidance about our direction and next steps in life?

Until next week,

wild {unknown} friday

The Fool shows up when we are about to embark on a new adventure. This will require a leap of faith, and a step into the unknown. We will be called upon to trust that this adventure will take us where we need to go in life, even though to our rational brains what we are contemplating seems risky or even plain reckless.

The energy of The Fool card is all about the pure possibility and potential of the moment. We can stay safe by not stepping off the precipice into the unknown, but that way we will never fully immerse ourselves in all that life has to offer.

This card is a call to trust in the Universe to support you….it truly is a step into The Wild Unknown!

Card for 2015 ~ The Fool

Today when choosing my Daily Card I asked for a card that would provide the overarching theme for 2015. I wanted something that would condense the essence of this new year into the energies of one card that would provide an anchor and reference point as I navigate 2015.

I was thrilled to see The Fool as this is a card of opportunity and adventure; a card that says a resounding “YES” to life. The Fool is not afraid to jump right into life and trusts that she will be guided and taken care of on her journey into the unknown.

Last year was definitely spent contemplating and consolidating and integrating all the change that has taken place in the last year or so. Towards the end of the year I was starting to feel that enough navel gazing had taken place, and it was time to jump back into the flow of life and start fully living again.

Drawing The Fool card today was confirmation that 2015 is the year to take life by the throat and get on with the business of living and experiencing again. Time to travel light, to have fun and simplify. Time to “just do it”!
