Weekly Tarotcast™: 10-15-19 through 10-22-19
The Fool Tarot Card
The Fool Tarot card is this week’s Tarotcast, a free Tarot reading for you. The Fool tarot card represents the unlimited potential of the human spirit. Purity of intent and action. He is actually NO fool. He is simply innocent of experience and embarking on the first steps of his journey. This is the journey through the spiritual paths of the Tarot and through everyday life.
On the Tree of Life this card travels path 12. It joins sephiroth or sphere 1, Kether (Crown) to sephiroth or sphere 3, Binah (Understanding). Its Hebrew letter is Beth (meaning “house”). This includes not only the homes in which we live – but the temple or house of God.
One of the many secrets of the Fool – and there are many – is his direct, pure connection to the Divine. Many cultures have celebrated and revered this holy innocent. He dances through the streets in his motley clothes, clowns around and pulls silly faces. He invites us to get in on the answer to the great cosmic riddle. He tells us the punch-line to the big cosmic joke. That everything is no-thing, “zero” – limitless potential. And that happens to be his number in the Tarot Major Arcana.
The Fool tarot card is the Planetary Trump of Mercury. Mercury is the wing-footed messenger of the Gods, as well as the Trickster and Juggler. Childlike rather than childish, he trusts his instincts and creative imagination. We would do well to emulate him.
In real-time astrology, the Sun continues its transit of Air-sign Libra. Libra’s loving yet analytical approach to life is a nice complement to this week’s card. Mercury is transiting Water-sign Scorpio along with Venus (Libra’s ruling planet). With Mercury in Scorpio we seek the truth. This is complementary to the energy of this week’s card. We are willing to look beyond and beneath, to go undercover. Our thoughts are deep and analytical. This provides a balance to some of the impulsivity of this week’s card.
Honesty is admirable but there is a tendency to be blunt. Avoid insensitivity. Intuition is strong and insights are accurate. Explore a mystery and solve a riddle.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes rash, irresponsible behavior. Pushing too far too fast. Carelessness, and losing complete touch with reality, along with possible dishonesty and deception.
Let’s focus on being open and receptive to new beginnings and new projects. Let’s be willing to start the steps of our journey even if the destination, goal or outcome isn’t yet clear.
Power colors: pale yellow, sky blue, purple, violet and emerald green. Wear them all together at the same time if you’re feeling particularly FOOL-ish.
Power stones: diamond, jade, aquamarine, turquoise and emerald.
Wear these as jewelry or carry them as power stones. These will help us enter unknown territory with trust, enthusiasm and optimism. And we will find treasure along the path.
Power metals: mercury and zinc. Neither is wearable. But their qualities remind us to be flexible. Be ready to connect with others for strength. Manage ever-changing circumstances with grace.
Power fragrances: iris, valerian, lavender, lilac, vervain, jasmine and geranium. These will help you manifest positive, creative and transformative energy this week.
Power foods: foods prepared with parsley, dill, rosemary, lemongrass, mace, peppermint and tarragon. Teas brewed from jasmine or peppermint. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
