Good morning and Welcome! to The Fool’s Tarot for 14Mar2017. It is the usual spread, and the deck today is the *Tarot de Marseille* by A. Jodorowsky and P. Camoin. The draw for today is: Sulfur = 0 ‘le Mat’; Mercury = XX ‘le Jugement’, and Salt = ‘le Cavalier de Coupe’. I like the spread today, self-contained as it is; the two end figures framing, regards alert, Mercury for today, XX Judgement. Another way of looking at it is the two males, the Fool and the Knight, representing opposite ends of the long journey to Judgement, which is also neat and self-contained. Or, the Fool could be wending his way towards the Judgement, and a young man or nexus of Energy rides in to help me accomplish the journey. The meaning of the Knight is worth quoting the ‘Theory’ given to him by A. E. Thierens; “Theory: The Water of the soul on the Twelfth and on the Eighth house. The double influence of water makes the emotions and feelings prominent, relates to the imagination,
to deeper experiences and strong reactions of the soul, processes of psychic life, which may end in wonderful success or in less desirable phenomena. It is sure to indicate much relating to the subways of human life and the human soul. This is not always favourable or pleasant, of course, but is in almost every instance intensive, though the cups never go to anything like hatred or crime or real malice. Their weakness is in being unreliable or incalculable with regard to things of the exact world or matter. So in the worst cases this card may indicate everything connected with swindling from sheer mental instability. But it may also be, that the term 'swindler' (charlatan) is wrongly given to people who are standing apart from the common herd and are more or less occultists. The
‘higher graces of the imagination.’ There may be certainly a considerable degree of falsehood expressed by this card: false interpretation, misjudgment, tendentious or fantastic narratives, exaggerated complaints, imaginary wrongs, pathos and what the world calls miscarriage. On account of the eighth house all this may be connected with sex-questions or intimate and private affairs. The card may express indiscretion committed and slanderous reports, secretly promulgated. It has to do with secrets and the divulgation of secrets. But there may be also a higher sway in the emotional realm: devotion, sacrifice, charity.” That’s quite a thought-full, eh? I think this promises to be an auspicious day, and my intuition tells me that there will be an arrival of some sort connected to the reading today. All fine & good; except for a slight weakness remaining from Sunday’s event, I am feeling ready to “meet & greet.” I ask the Cosmos to give us ALL a new source of energy today. Be Well, Be Zen, Be Blessed!
