Deepest gratitude to Álvaro Villarrubia @alvarovillarrubia.photography for letting me use his stunning photography, and for joining the deck as The Fool.
The fool is often depicted with a dog at his heels, as he embraces the possibility of the world, even at the cliff edge at the crossroads of the unknown, life and death and rebirth.
For me the the Fool is a powerful omen, a space between possibility and reality, no plans, no expectation, just the continual immediate experience of the present moment.
It is the fools liberating spontaneity, to love & experience with nothing held back, nothing calculated and no fear that leads to the heights of divine encounters.
The Fool, is zero in the deck, infinite yet unnumbered and often representing the soul's journey into embracing new beginnings. The Fool Card is ruled by the planet Uranus, who takes 84 years to do a single orbit of the sun. When a Fool Card appears in your life, be prepared for new beginnings and deep long lasting changes that may unfold in all aspect of your life… over a long period of time. The Fool is also ruled by the element air, true to its nature the Fool is often ready to throw caution to the wind to fully embrace the present moment, just as air, just as the wind, the Fool embodies complete freedom in spirit & spontaneity of choice.
Society own anxieties and fears of unconformity has often depicted the fool as a fool, a beggar, a jester or a madman. Free from fear, the fool operters from beyond the confinements of the society and is perhaps the saniest one of them all. In this deck, to get a fool in a reading is a profoundly positive omen for one’s soul’s journey… in every sense of experience, pleasure and choice…. the fool is free and liberated. In most deck, the sacred hound accompanies the fool at his heels, this deck encourages to embraces the beasts within, fearless giving it spaces for expression and connection with self and others.
