Good Morning and Welcome! to The Fool’s Tarot for 03Aug2017. Today’s deck (again & for the foreseeable future) is the *Egipcios Kier Tarot* by Iglesias Janeiro, AKA “The Wonder deck,” my own appellation, as I do love it, I find its readings to be ALWAYS provocative and deep-reaching. IT IS structured as an Egyptian deck; that is to say, it is numbered 1 through 78, with the Major Arcana, of course, “at the front,” and then the rest of the cards in numerical order with no acknowledgement of suit or rank. So, you have 56 “minor arcana.” (You can, if desired, pull the “Court Cards” by placement, but it makes no sense. Go ahead, try it, you’ll see; and when you come whining to me about how it doesn’t work, don’t expect anything but a whipping for your troubles! Grin.) Today’s draw is rather . . . hmmm. I’m not sure why we are being so HEAVY on the Temperance/Justice axis; they are always around anyway in my life. The Salt today, though, is interesting. Instead of droning on, I’m going to give you the three definitions of the cards and let you wonder, alongside me, what possible aid #47 Conjecture brings to the mix. I ask the Cosmos to give us all an unanswered question today. Be Well, Be Zen, Be Blessed!
