The image features the FOOL card from The Light and Shadow Tarot by Michael Goepferd and Brian Williams. The kit contains 78 large Tarot cards measuring 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Also, there is a 208 page accompanying book with 83 images, description of the cards and the meanings. The images are a little different than the traditional Rider deck but the symbolism is awesome. (Black and white imagery is fantastic for psychic development.)
About the card: The Fool doesn’t look too worried stepping into the alligator’s mouth. He is too busy looking at the butterfly. The monkey holds on to his right ankle trying to keep him back from his next step. The all seeing eye is the blind faith which the Fool possesses. There is another image of 2 characters embracing looks like a mother and child to me. When I study this card I get a fun feeling filled with drama. Oh, to be a Fool with no cares in the world and trusting all will be good.
WHO IS THE FOOL IN YOUR LIFE?
The Fool card is ruled by the unpredictably explosive planet Uranus. If you know anything about Astrology, Uranus transits are about upheavals. Many of us know people who create upheavals in our lives. These people are very unique in their approach to life.
The Astrological sign of Aquarius is ruled by Uranus. These people tend to keep things light and only put energy into vital matters. They seem to let things roll off their backs so easily that I’m sure they are the envy of those who hold on to the consequences of their actions. Friends and community are important (11th house in the Zodiac).
I bet you can think of someone represented by the Fool. This person probably wears mismatched socks, bright colors and is a friend to all. They have difficulty in personal relationships and demand emotional freedom. You cannot hold this person down to a commitment for long. They love to wander and explore.
When the Fool card comes up in a Reading it could represent your own state of mind at the time. It can represent another person you have to deal with. Don’t even try to understand this individual just accept them. In situation questions this card tells you to be a bit more daring and to take the risk.
If you fall in love with the Fool you are falling in love with an aspect of yourself which is hard to control. They say people in our lives mirror our own personalities be they light or shadow.
