Free to Toil and Give

             Our message today is directly tied to our daily draw.  Both speak of Release, and at the same time being bound (to a concept, an idea, a person, a relationship …..).

Doing the work we’re paid to do.

             We are responsible for certain actions, activities, and outcomes, regardless of our careers, positions, or titles.  Sometimes it’s a completely un-paid position, like parenting.  Others could be a well-paid occupation, like high-end health care.  Both are held accountable for a person’s life.

             What the Universe is saying is to be the very best whatever you are.  Put all of yourself into it.  Do a good job, whether the pay is decent, excellent, or non-existent.

             And then, we come to our card.  We’ve returned to the regular rotation; this messenger appeared.

"The Fool"

The Fool

             I, personally, adore The Fool.  When this character arrives, you know that a new journey has begun, or, as our message implies, a new task.

             Freedom and Faith are the key words here.  Stepping off into the unknown takes Trust.

“The Fool  ~  0  ~  Major Arcana

Moment to moment, and with every step, the Fool leaves the past behind.  He carries nothing more than his purity, innocence, and trust, symbolized by the white rose in his hand.  

The pattern on his waistcoat contains the colors of all four elements of the Tarot, indicating that he is in harmony with all that surrounds him.  His intuition is functioning at its peak.

At this moment the Fool has the support of the universe to make this jump into the unknown.  Adventures await him in the river of life.

The card indicates that if you trust your intuition right now, your feeling of the ‘rightness’ of things, you cannot go wrong.

Your actions may appear ‘foolish’ to others, or even to yourself, if you try to analyze them with the rational mind.  But the ‘zero’ place occupied by the Fool is the numberless number where trust and innocence are the guides, not skepticism and past experience.”

An old calendar page.

             I look at it every day, it’s less than a foot from my table and chair.   And every day it makes me happy.  Every day I see Hope and Life in it.  Every day I hear the water, see the rainbow, and feel the splash of that tail.

  1. Here are some more whales for you. http://www.talbotcollection.com/pages/whlitho_cart.htm

    If you scroll to the bottom there are also dolphins and sea otters. I came across this guy when I, yearzzzz ago, came upon a VHS called Orcas and Dolphins. It’s set to music by Mannheim Steamroller. (It’s on DVD now, hmmm) Awesome, awesome photos.

    Or you can click here for a mishmash from Google of his photos https://www.google.com/search?q=bob+talbot+prints&espv=2&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=ZwnXU7OBMIGjyATNp4GYDg&ved=0CFgQsAQ&biw=1600&bih=775#imgdii=_

    I am familiar with his work, I just never knew who he was. Also? That mention of Mannheim Steamroller set us off on quite the research and realization adventure. Thanks, for all of this!
