Themes! The Universe does nothing but create themes and patterns. And we’re currently stuck inside of one.
The images I was gifted with this morning were all about the equality of the Whole. And of ourselves. Our balanced and attuned selves.
Think of the seasons. And how one offsets the other, as they are on a wheel of the year.
Life – Death/Old – New
As spring blossoms gather and then drop, so too, do the leaves of autumn fall. It’s that beginning/ending that we need to focus on right now.
Every ending equals a beginning. Every death brings new life. Every season is followed by the next. These are the productive/destructive cycles of our planet. All is in perfect balance and is rolling along precisely as it should, as it needs to in this current time and place.
While that’s a very challenging and difficult concept to wrap our heads around sometimes (often!), it is the truth. And it is how we need to accept our lessons. Can we do better than where we sit now?
Of course we can. We have free will. Those patterns and cycles are for our benefit. But we can also step outside of them when we need to. Or, we can create our own.
In returning to our regular rotation around the card altar, we’ve been validated by the daily draw; this, our illustrated portion of today’s message.
“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 of 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.”
Osho Zen Tarot
is to say that I finally had this card enlarged.
It’s now 11 x 17 inches tall and wide, and on our wall. It looks good that big, and I love seeing it every day as I enter the room.
