The tarot cards hold special meanings, warnings, characteristics and actions that may need to be taken in order to change your course in life. Keep in mind that some aspects are changeable and some are not. It is all up to you. With the Fool Card as the tarot card for the week of 12-30-12, notice the scene depicted in the card. The fool, who is a dreamer, is looking up with confidence, however, he is unaware of the cliff he is about to fall off over. The cliff symbolizes his journey and the pitfalls he may encounter before reaching his goals. He represents change and new beginnings. For you during the coming week, have you thought through some of the changes and choices you are wanting to make in your life? Are you being practical about your expectations of the future? Is your ego and desire for material items getting in the way of your spirituality? Are you making your own choices or are you taking advice from others because it is easier that way? Be careful and aware this week of the consequences that will occur because of your decisions. At the end of the week, you decide if the Fool fell in the upright or reversed position for you.
MAJOR ARCANA, NUMBER ZERO
ASTROLOGICAL SIGN or PLANET: URANUS
The fool card refers to a jester, not to someone who is foolish. It represents a dreamer, an idealist. The Fool desires to do great things, but is often unaware of just how difficult the process is. He must always be very careful of the choices he makes, remembering that knowledge is his ally. This card often symbolizes a new beginning, unrestrained optimism, spontaneity and curiosity. It is time to examine all options carefully, before making decisions in your life.
Although the Fool may well indicate a lack of experience or a grasp of life’s pitfalls, it is equally true that his lack of experience leads him to believe that all things are possible, which can bring even impossible goals within his reach. From exploring new horizons in life to experiencing a new phase, the Fool card also symbolizes letting life take its course, as well as the negative implications of having to come to terms with the current condition one’s own life is in.
In the reversed position, the card can signify risk taking, bad choices or decision making, hesitation and apathetic behavior. Your own vanity may get in your way. There is an overwhelming fear of the future. You may have a cynical outlook or reluctance and hesitancy. Do not take any risks or make snap decisions at this time. You may also be in possible danger.
