0 Fool

This will be a long w.i.p. (work in progress) as there is so much to learn about a single Tarot card and there are 78 of them! Please free to add your own thoughts and ideas about any of the cards (in their appropriate post). The insights are mine unless I state otherwise. I’m aware of the words of other’s but this category is about reflection. However, under the astrology heading I’m learning more so it might not be my own words (and I will give credit where credit is due). And as I glean new understanding and more knowledge, under headings of interest, I will continue to edit and record.

The Fool is the first card in the Tarot card’s deck of 22 major arcana cards. Twenty-one more cards take us on a journey of a lifetime with all the wonderful up’s and down’s we receive and the Fool sets the pace.

Numerology

Alpha and Omega. Nothing and Everything. Wholeness. Never ending. Duplicity. One half of infinity (the World, being the other half).

Symbology

Mountain: On top of the world (the world being the last card of the major arcana). The Sun: bright , happy, life giving but also destructive. A cut flower: life, beauty, having something to give but also being transient with sure decay in a short while.

Body Language

Human: Arms wide open. A welcoming posture. One foot forward and one back. Moving ahead but also being careful. Dog: Warning or excited to go on the journey.

Colour Psychology

Yellow — light and happy, Red — Passion and risk, Blue – sky (dreaming), Brown – earth (grounded), White – purity and naivitee

Meanings & Ideas

I’m not going to cover how to read upright or reversed cards but rather include insights and ideas about the card’s many meanings.
Carefree. Light. Lighthearted. Brilliant. Whole. Happy. In a self created/contained bubble. Journeying. Adventure. Happily independent. Independence. Making foolish decisions. Not paying attention to where one is going. Not listening to others. Having a good time. Taking a quick or unexpected vacation. Having a travel partner who is coming along for the ride. Starting over. Starting fresh. Learning by oneself (autodidact). Wanting to make mistakes or test oneself. Free-spirited. Possibilities. Youth. Folly and frolicking. Practical Joker — “just kidding!”. Lack of seriousness. Things or rather people are not as they appear. This isn’t because they are being deception but rather other’s are not seeing clearly or don’t want to see clearly.

Astrology & Astronomy

Uranus (no this is not part of your butt — it’s a planet! 🙂 — energy that needs to be expressed or understood, a psychological function — an ideal, drive, desire, objective, and lessons to be learned. (taken from, astrologyzine.com)
Change, Revolution, Disruption, Originality, Rebelliousness (taken from: Elysian Astrology) Astrology is a weaker area of understanding for me but I’m learning. 🙂 Archangel Metatron’s planet is Uranus.
