Our life is a Journey and over the next weeks we’ll take a Journey with the Tarot.
Why is the Tarot a helpful tool in our life?
The Tarot’s Major Arcana is in itself a Journey, a sequence of events beginning with the Fool and ending with The World. This is similar to our own life Journey where we start off new and go thru the different stages of life, sometimes repeating certain paths and experiences until we ‘get it right’ and then finally at the end where we feel on top of The World.
Our Journey with the Tarot starts off with The Fool.
Everything in life starts with a new adventure. This is what our life Journey is about as every day brings opportunity for a new opportunities. Of course, this is totally up to you. Do you open the front door and dare take a step outside or do you stay inside where you know it is safe, warm and comfortable but also stagnant?
When starting off on your Journey it is best to not make all the decisions about your path, or have assumptions about how every single detail will be. Sure, it’s good to visualize but as we know on any Journey surprises come up and it’s best to have an open mind about how to deal with them.
The Fool comes up in a reading when it’s time to start something completely new, follow your Bliss, let go and try something different. This could be a new relationship, new job, an innovative business opportunity. It’s time to dare yourself, be more open-minded and enjoy the ride. Take that chance, that leap of faith which has seemed daunting to you. It is time! Open the door, take that step outside and feel the beautiful sunlight on your face.
Scared? Remember that starting something new can result in joy, adventure, excitement and with courage the opportunity to keep going even when the going gets tough. You can always pick yourself up and start again. With these ‘tools’ you’ve obtained new knowledge, peace and liberation which you are taking with you on your Journey in the bag at the end of your wand. Your passion, innocence, trust, love for yourself and purity of spirit are represented by the rose, with your happy leaping dog as your companion representing loyalty and primal instincts, now you’re ready to go forth on your new Journey.
Be confident and bold, take that step outside into the unknown as there is a big wide world just waiting for you!
