Please note that all Tarot pictures are not my own and I don't claim to have any right over them. They are taken from the Ancient Egyptian Tarot deck by Clive Barrett.
There are traditional tarot cards, which I am, admittedly, not a great fan of. This is the reason I didn’t use them for the longest time and instead kept to other oracle decks. However, new Tarot decks have been created and I will post pictures from different decks to show that even the tarot can and should evolve.
The traditional tarot cards hold wisdom and symbolism, but they were created at a time when the general public was still much rawer in their approach to life and spiritual enlightenment was a term not even understood by most. The influx with Indigo children and the raising of energies on the planet to ever-higher vibrations have called for a gentler approach to the often as harsh perceived traditional deck.
Ancient wisdom and a new perception of life and energy work have resulted in many people creating new tarot decks with a more positive vibration than the old. The pictures have also subtitles that let you know what the deck is called and who created it. You can click on them and be taken to the Amazon link if you wish to purchase a particular deck that calls to you.
But now, let’s start with The Fool.
The Skeleton of Life
Silly and irrational or intuitive and spontaneous? These are the two sides of The Fool. The card’s keywords are chaos, flexibility, playfulness and curiosity. And thus, The Fool takes us on a journey to explore our inner child, build trust in our own divine, creative powers and trust the flow of life expressed through us.
However, it also warns us to take heed not to act without prudence. Taking a risk is not a bad thing as long as it is felt, thought and acted upon – in that order. If we, however, not heed our own intuition, judgement and discernment, we can easily get ourselves into big trouble.
Thus, The Fool teaches us two sides of one whole, for, from chaos, form is birthed. In short, the message is for us to take that stick out of our backsides that have caused us to become too rigid, but at the same time, not to throw out our bones with it because without a skeleton we would collapse. Bones contain both hard and flexible material, giving it a bendable, yet strong and supportive quality.
