THE MAJOR ARCANA
THE FOOL (Major Arcana 0)
“I exist to help you sample all aspects of life. I step out without fear to experience and investigate. This way, follow me. Take action. I say and urge you hesitate, perhaps from past disappointments.
“In fairy tales I am the young lover, often a prince in disguise who wins the hand of a lady through his pure-hearted act and bravery in a crisis or a contest against an older, manipulative suitor. In other stories I am the ‘dummling’ a worthless, unlucky, seemingly stupid character who turns out to be a hero or finds unexpected success.
I encourage you to take risks and to look at things in your own unique way. Nothing gained. I always say. Yes I could pay more attention to details and preparation but if I stopped to think out everything. I’d never get ahead.
Mine is the innocent wisdom of the impetuous. I am the impulse to leap the unknown and I’ll serve you again and again us you encounter challenges, conflicts and the joys especially the joys of the symbolic life. I forward in to represent your ability to be fully yourself and to your own nature. I hope that you never cast me aside, for I am a crucial part of your humanness.
