The Fool In Tarot

The fool in tarotThe Fool in Tarot represents new beginnings, spontaneity, faith that things will work out and not taking yourself too seriously. This card can either appear at the beginning of the Tarot deck, or at the end, as it is numbered 0 which represents pure potentiality. He is a central piece to the entire deck because he is symbolic of our journey through life and all the lessons we will learn along the way from the other 77 cards in the deck.

When we are born into the world, we descend from what some would consider pure energy. We have not yet taken on the burdens of the lessons the physical world has to offer, and our spirit is still infused with absolute trust that all is well.

However, because spirit is all light and no darkness it wants to know itself and needs the experience of duality which life on planet earth provides. We cannot know light without darkness, and we cannot know joy without sorrow. The Fool has complete faith that he is in the right place at the right time and is unconcerned about which path or course of action he needs to follow because to him, everything is an open book of adventure and he delights in the moment. Yet, he yearns for breadth of experience and the contrast that experience provides and decides to take the leap of faith to go into a journey of the unknown.

What The Fool means in a reading.

The Fool can represent that urge within you to create something new. It is that moment when a new idea springs into your mind and it feels good to you. You are inspired to run with the idea and see where it might go. You decide to take a leap of faith and throw yourself into it, completely unaware that you are going to come up with some inevitable challenges along the way which could potentially stop you in your tracks and cause you to want to turn around and go back into the ignorance of The Fool. However, if you are prepared to learn the lessons the Fool comes up against, the reward far out weighs any temporary pain you may feel in the journey to the realisation of the goal from the fresh new idea that started you off in the new direction to begin with.

Symbolism of the Card:

The white rose The Fool is holding is symbolic of purity and freedom from earthly desires that can lead to enslavement.

The white dog symbolizes protection while The Fool takes his journey into self realisation towards The World (the final card in the Tarot deck) which is symbolic of attainment, accomplishment and fulfillment.

The mountains in the background are symbolic of the realms of spirit he has just left to descend into a material existence on earth and the rising sun is symbolic of a new day or new beginning.

Life Situations where The Fool is relevant:

  • It is the beginning of a new year. Your mind is focused on how the coming year will be different to the last. You are caught up in the New Year’s Resolutions everyone is telling you about, and you feel like you want some of your own, so you make some!
  • You’ve been grappling with a problem for a while and can’t seem to find a resolution in your mind. You decide to let it go for a while and turn your mind onto other things. As soon as you let go of worrying about it or over thinking things for a while, a fresh idea comes into your head and provides you with a solution to the ‘problem’ you want. This is where the pure energy of The Fool resides-he lets go and trusts that things will work out, and when he can be in this state of mind, this is where life can flow with more ease.
  • You are happy for no particular reason. You feel light hearted and go about your day in a sense of flow and gratitude. You feel protected and loved and that the universe is abundant in all ways.
  • You want to pursue a life direction that many would consider ‘foolish’, yet you know in your heart it is the right path for you, so you decide to take a leap of faith and ‘jump’ into it.
  • You trust your intuition even when it seems like it is leading you somewhere off the beaten track, yet you know you must follow the ‘instructions’ you are being given.

Are you looking for a fresh burst of inspiration for the new year? The year 2017 is a Universal number 1 in numerology which means that new beginnings on a global level as well as personal level are a powerful influence on humanity this year.

If you are ready to choose a different way of life and re-examine all of your beliefs about yourself and your current life experience in order to have more deep joy, check out this 30 Day Challenge Called ‘Lifebook’.

Free Online Tarot Reading-Full Moon Spread

This free online Tarot reading will focus around a full moon spread given that today is one of the biggest full moons we have seen in 70 years, and we will not see one this big until 2034!

Full moons are a great time to ask yourself what you may need to let go of in order to feel more flow in your life. It is a time of shedding the old and welcoming the new.

Universal number of the day: 7 (1+4+1+1+2+0+1+6=16, 1+6=7) Reflection, spirituality, discovery, knowledge.

I drew three cards and the positions were as follows:

CARD 1: What do we need to let go of?

The Tower Reversed

CARD 2: What actions are needed to let go?

The 8 of Cups

CARD 3: What do you have to look forward to as a result?

9 of Cups Reversed.

The Tower in TarotThe Tower (reversed) suggests that there is a lot of fear of change in the air and in light of Donald Trump recently being elected as president of the United States, this makes a lot of sense to me! Interesting how the financial markets bottomed out as soon as the news got out which indicates people are not feeling secure about this.

However, in your personal life, it is time to look at what things you are fearful about changing. When the Tower is reversed it can indicate that you might be clinging to certain ways of living that you think make you secure, however, in reality they are not.

One way of knowing exactly what you are fearing is to look at an area that is currently causing you the most stress. This is a clue that it is time to have another look at the situation with fresh eyes to see what mental processes are hindering you in feeling more free to live in harmonious ways.

8 of Cups in TarotThe 8 of Cups suggests there is a situation you need to physically walk away from in order to find greater fulfillment and joy. The situation is related to your inner life and it could mean that you need to walk away from a material situation that is no longer working for you or causing disappointment or sadness. It is time to take a deeper spiritual quest and move onto new terrain. It is the start of a new journey to greater satisfaction. You may feel a little alone in this, but trust that you will find what you are looking for soon.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What will give you more meaning in your life?
  • What actions do you need to take today to start the process of allowing a life that feels more meaningful to you?
  • How can you move towards things that are wanted rather than unwanted?

The 9 of Cups In TarotThe 9 of Cups (reversed) is a perfect progression from the 8 of Cups. Despite the card being reversed, it is indicating that taking the plunge to move on from something will be worth it for you. I feel the card is reversed at the moment because we can’t see yet where we are going and what will give us greater satisfaction, but the potential is definitely there because the 9 of Cups is associated with wishes fulfilled, contentment and happiness.

Actions to take:

  • Make a list of things that don’t feel good to you right now to clearly identify what it is that you don’t want.
  • Make another list of things  that you would like to see happen in your life and what it would feel like to have them happen. Literally write these things down and be sure to really focus on the positive feelings. Be very descriptive in the positive feelings you think you would feel if your desires were to manifest into reality.
  • What is one thing you can do today based on your list of wanted things that would be a small step in that direction?

A final note.

Where is your path of least resistance? Delve into your emotions around what you are fearing at the moment and notice the negative feelings that arise. This is an indication that this thought/pathway is not your path of least resistance. Now, find a thought about the situation you are thinking about that feels slightly better. When you notice a small difference in how you feel about the situation that feels better than the last thought, this is your clue to working your way up to less and less resistance in order to move forward with what you are wanting, rather than what you don’t want.

Sometimes we need to transcend what we are observing in our life. We may find our current circumstances painful, and can’t see a way forward. This is an indication we need to look beyond our physical world and get more in touch with our emotional and spiritual world in order to shift the material world we are looking at. Our physical reality is often a direct reflection of our inner reality and therefore if we can find ways to shift our inner reality, our outer reality will begin to shift too.

This is the core of what Energy Healer Jeffrey Allen teaches in his 60 day challenge ‘Unlocking Transcendence’. I took his free online masterclass yesterday where he enlightened us on how we can let go of our physical reality and bring more focus on our spiritual reality in order to change our material circumstances. This new program uses a step-by-step daily training applied over the 6 areas of spiritual fitness to help you transcend the limits of your physical reality and live your greatest life possible.

Free Tarot Reading Online-Week of 24th October

The free Tarot reading online this week focuses on contribution, connection and vitality. I drew three cards which represented these aspects of daily life to give ideas on what we can do to enhance these areas to feel more in balance as a whole.

I was influenced to do this three card spread based on these aspects after listing to award winning author Jonathan Fields talk on a podcast about his book ‘How to live a good life’. He defines ‘contribution, connection and vitality’ as 3 buckets we need to continually fill up regularly in order to feel like we are living a good life. I was quite taken by this idea and immediately saw how this could be turned into a daily or weekly Tarot spread.

Jonathan says your contribution bucket is fundamentally how you’re bringing yourself to the world. It is about how you express your gifts, your strengths and your values. Are you contributing in a way that’s leveraging the fullness of who you are, and is deeply meaningful and making a difference?

Your connection bucket is all about your relationships-whether that be your relationship with an intimate partner or friends and family, or perhaps just your relationship with God, or Source or whatever you define as something where you feel connected.

The vitality bucket is about optimizing your state of mind and body. Research suggests that the mind and body are not separate so this bucket is about how ‘full’ we feel in relation to vitality and general energy and enthusiasm for life on a physical and mental plane.

The weekly reading:

 Contribution:
This card is all about having an effect in the world, being practical, being prosperous as well as being trusting and trustworthy. When it comes to how you are contributing to the world it suggests that the dreams and plans you have for your life will work out the best when there is a bigger picture in mind in terms of how it will positively affect others as well as yourself. How do your dreams and plans impact the world around you? Is it about more than just you? How will others benefit by you achieving success in a certain area? When we are contributing in some way whether that be in a big or small way we go beyond ourselves and as a result more easily achieve what it is that we want. We are motivated for more than just ourselves. Being clear on how we want to affect others in positive ways helps to guide the daily actions we take. Given that this card came up reversed for this week it suggests that perhaps you need to take some time to think bigger and lay down some solid plans as to how you can shine your light further into your world/community/workplace/family. What impact do you want to have this week where do you need to spend some time planning and using your unique talents and skills to contribute in meaningful ways?
Connection:
It seems that out of the three cards that have shown up this week the  bucket that needs the most filling is the connection card. This is the third time within a week that a swords card like this has shown up and I feel it is representative of the fact that many people feel disconnected from their source and from their flow in life. They feel they are in crisis or defeat in some way and have a sense of loss and depression and are unsure how to experience being re-connected to the things that give them a real spring. We are more disconnected from others and often ourselves than ever before despite our amazing technology allowing for more connections. This technology can be the thing that stops us from being present to what is around us and the blessings that are around us. It can also result in us feeling like we are missing out on something as we scroll through our social media feeds with endless photos of others having a good time somewhere in the world when we might be stuck at work wishing we were elsewhere. I read the other day that depression is related to excessive thinking about the past, and anxiety is related to excessive thinking about the future. So, if we are able to bring our focus back to the present moment and live life more in ‘the slow lane’ we will feel more calm and centered within. Take time to feel your energy, be in your body, breath and focus on solutions, not problems. Turn off your social media for a while as well as the TV and all news and seek out what makes you feel connected to yourself first,  as this will enable you to feel more connected to others in a real way. What is one small practical way you can improve your connection to yourself this week?
Vitality:
Page of SwordsPage of Swords
What will make your body and mind feel agile and allow for a sense of curiosity?  The Page of Swords is quick to act and restless at heart. He asks whether you are being truthful with yourself about what things help your vitality. It may be time to face the facts about what is working in terms of your physical and mental health and what is not working. What activities help you feel more vital and which ones drain your energy? Are there areas you need take some swift action in order to make this bucket a little more full this week? How can the energy of this card help with increasing your own personal energy? Do you need to sit down and make a list of what aspects of your life you are currently engaged in that are great for your health and wellbeing? The Page of Swords challenges us to use our mental energy  and fortitude to make swift changes where needed.

Daily Tarot Card Reading-September 25th, 2016

Today’s daily Tarot Card reading is focused around letting go of worries you have had, looking at past choices you have made and working out whether your current choices are helping you go in the direction you want to go.

Universal Number Of The Day: 8

What will help you: The 9 of Swords

What will hinder you:The Lovers

Your unrealised potential: The Wheel Of Fortune

The 9 of swords in tarot

The 9 of Swords

It may seem strange that the 9 of Swords has shown up in a position in the spread that is meant to be indicating what can help you, however the way I am interpreting this message is that the thing that will help you the most is simply letting go of worries you have today. Or, if you can’t let go of worries, at least try and put them on pause for the day and focus your mind else where as much as you can. Worrying never got anyone anywhere. One of the best things you can do about worry is to take some constructive action towards avoiding the thing thing that you are worried about.

For example-perhaps you are worried you can’t pay a bill on time. Well, a constructive action would be to call the company or person involved and ask them if they have a payment plan. Or perhaps it is simply asking yourself what would be the worst that could happen, and if the worst did happen, what would be your plan of action? Most the time, the worst does not happen, and it is mostly in our mind as to what might happen, as we are such creative beings. So, as best you can, try and shelve your worries today. This will allow your mind a better chance of coming up with creative solutions anyway.

The Lovers

The Lovers

In terms of what will hinder you-again, The Lovers showing up in this position may seem odd, however The Lovers can be all about some of the big life choices you are making and whether or not they are serving you going forward. Will your current choices lead you towards a life you desire or one you do not desire? The Lovers actually tie nicely in with the last card of this spread-The Wheel of Fortune.

The Wheel Of Fortune is linked to past actions and karma and if you have been taking consistent positive actions while creating your life, the Wheel of Fortune is a very positive card for to show up in the position of your unrealised potential here. If your past actions have been helpful towards yourself and others, your fortune, so to speak, is about to turn in a really positive way. However, if your choices around a certain area have been less than positive, then the Wheel of Fortune will serve as a strong indicator that you have not been living in alignment with your highest self.

The Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune

We are all a mix of these things of course-some days we live up to our highest self, other days we don’t. Fear can get the better of us and deplete our energy. However, if you keep picking yourself back up again and keep nudging towards something that is wanted rather than unwanted, The Wheel of Fortune will speed things up for you. It fits the saying ‘What goes around, comes around’.

The number 8 is related to power, building, movement, action and change, so it fits precisely with the Wheel Of Fortune (trust me! I don’t consciously choose these cards! I ask the Universe what would be useful to know for a particular day and deal the cards out randomly after shuffling). Interesting that two Major Arcana cards show up on a Universal 8 day which relates to powerful energy more than Minor Arcana cards.

So take today to have a think about your choices and where your choices are taking you, and find ways to redirect your worries in constructive ways.
