12/04/13: Shocking the Fool!

Funny to see The Fool (associated with Uranus) show up right after The Star (associated with Aquarius).  What I was just saying about The Star applies largely to The Fool as well: readers love to pick and choose only friendly, sunshine and flowers interpretations. But breaking this vibe down, it’s easy to see how it’s just not that simple.

Electricity improves our world in countless ways, even saving lives. Electricity also takes lives. The difference is not in the current, but how it’s applied. Electricity is Uranian energy. The energy of the Fool is electric! The journey of the Fool is simultaneously thrilling and terrifying, both with good cause.

That adventure the Fool sets off on, so happy and carefree? It WILL change his life forever. But there’s no telling if it will “make him” or “break him.” The answer to that question is entirely up to the Fool. You dig?

Expect shocking news, or perhaps a completely unexpected opportunity. Know the option is incredibly powerful, sudden, and absolutely without guarantee. You have to make the call yourself, if the risk is worth the potential benefit. I’d suggest the best argument could be made for “yea” if you’re in it for the experience and knowledge versus a specific outcome. Experience you’ll get! A specific outcome, the outlook is much more hazy. So it more or less depends on your goals here.

Are you looking at a sudden opportunity?

08/06/13: Charged Messages / Fool

the-fool

Buzzed. Transmitting. Alive. Crackling. CHARGED. This is what I’m seeing in this version of the Fool from the Zodiac Tarot, focusing exclusively on the Golden Dawn’s astrological association of Uranus. Here we’ve got a radio tower sending out waves.

Tarot readers like to look at the Fool as all sunshine and roses of a grand adventure but he’s not. Pessimists may look at the Fool as clueless, naive or idiotic, but that doesn’t capture the full spirit, either.

The Fool is neither all light or all dark. The Fool is potential, possibility as of yet unrealized. One thing you know about the Fool for certain, however, is that the journey undertaken will effect change.

There is electricity in the air and the messages transmitted pack a punch. These words going out today? They can change you. However, like the broadcast from this tower, the power of messages today is not in the words themselves. The real power lies in the heart and minds of the listeners. Words not heard have no impact. Without fail, the Fool’s journey is a personal one.

Are you feeling the charge?

01/10/12: Taking the Window | The Fool

fool-meaning

“If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.” Tom Peters

Today’s Tarot is The Fool (Uranus), numbered 0 or in some decks, presented without a number at all. He is everything and nothing—a blank slate, innocence, pure potential. Much as readers usually welcome The Fool, it’s not like he signals sheer, unbridled joy.

He just can. Or not. It really depends on how things progress, you know?

I see the Fool often to herald an opportunity, an open window. NOT a guarantee of what you’re going to find on the other side, though! Only that it will change you somehow. The Fool arrives to mark the beginning of a path that will alter who you are, what you believe to be real, change your destiny.

But always, it’s about your choices, your path. You know?

Know when the Fool arrives, you have the option of taking his journey. Know that it consists of the unknown! Realize, you’re arriving innocent and without a real understanding of where it will end up. What you learn along with way will afford you more personal control (as you get to the Magician), but starting out, that just isn’t there.

Deciding to take this trip is an act of Faith. That’s what you need to pack up and sling across your shoulder before setting out—your faith. It will come in handy. Honestly, it’s all you need.

Are you seeing “Foolish” opportunities in your life?

12/06/11: Perils of Adventure | The Fool

“For there is a price ticket on everything that puts a whizz into life, and adventure follows the rule. It’s distressing, but there you are.” Leslie Charteris

20111130_111319Today’s Tarot is the Fool (Uranus)—one of my favorites! Why, I even named the site after him. Ha! But you know, much as we Tarot people love to spin up all sunshine and flowers, this card does have his downsides.

The Fool doesn’t point to instant, effortless traveling. He’s mere potential, a blank slate. Meaning he has the capacity for unbridled good…or unbridled disaster! He’s undone, unfinished, undetermined. He’s off on his trip, taking a leap of faith. But inherent in any leap of faith is the possibility you may fall flat on your face. So be aware. RISK is involved in working with the Fool.

I’m not saying it’s not worth the leap anywho! It may well be. I’m just saying the Fool’s perch is somewhat precarious by it’s nature. In our jubilation to celebrate an exciting new journey, you have to expect there will sometimes be rocky patches. Bumps, you know? Don’t be blindsided when you hit a few.

Soooooooo…if you see the Fool, understand the nature of his energy. It’s a grand adventure for sure, a Hero’s journey you’re undertaking if you travel. You will find out things about yourself you never dreamed of—but you may not like all you find. The new vistas definitely come at a price. I tend to consider the costs worth paying, but then again, I’m pretty big on personal growth. It’s kind of my gig.

You have any foolishness going down?

11/05/11: Enjoying Your Trip? | Reversed Sun, Fool

tarot-cards-meaning

When my husband and I were getting ready to buy our first home, we used to daydream about how utterly perfect everything would be, once it was ready. There would be enough room for everything! We’d have our  own space and our yard and our peaceful meals in the dining room and the kids would never get underfoot and blah, blah blah. We took to calling it the “magic house,” just a little tongue-in-cheek. You know. Because it would magically make everything wonderful!

Mmmm hmmm. I’m sure you can guess how that worked out. It was pretty and shiny and new, at first. But you bring yourself to wherever you go. We were the same people in a new place, and new has a limited lifespan. The mistake we made in “magic-housing” is assuming that outside factors made all the difference. Outside experiences impact the day-to-day, sure, but they ain’t the be-all and end-all, you know? Your internal experiences is the common denominator, what you carry with you no matter what.

Today’s Tarot forecast is the Inverted Sun (associated, not surprisingly, with the SUN!), and the Fool (Uranus). If you’re not happy, well, get moving, grasshopper! This is YOUR path, your responsibility, your job to find your way. Not mine, not your husband’s, your girlfriend’s or your kid’s. YOURS. Break yourself free (Uranus).

Travel_PicAnd the other thing—it’s gotta be about the journey, always. If you can’t extract your joy, feel wonder and gratitude and passion from process  itself…well, I hate to say it, but you’re kind of screwed. The destination,  that fateful day you actually move in to your magic house? That’s a trifling 1% of your total experience! The glow wears off. The journey, to one magic house or another though, is the other 99% of the gig.

If you’re not feeling the full force of light in your life, right here, right now, then start seeking your own adventure. Because it is your job to find it.

Are you enjoying your trip? If not, is there something you can adjust?
