Full Message of the Week
Following last week's Ten of Swords card that signaled the end of certain worries, the Tarot sends us now a message of encouragement to jump and face the unknown with the Fool card.
In the Mythic Tarot, the Fool card represents Dionysus, the God of Wine and Ecstasy, famous for driving men and women mad if they did not accept the gifts of dance, music, poetry and spiritual enlightenment that he bestowed.
This card appears when we need to look beyond material comfort and the doldrums of our lives and take chances in injecting some magic and purpose into them. Whether by taking small risks or bigger ones, the Fool announces that a new chapter will begin and that facing the unknown will be required. The new chapter may be forced on us or we may initiate it of our own free-will.
Just like the Fool, we will need to come out of the cave of what is known, comfortable, secure and embrace the uncertainty of the future by taking a leap of faith.
From a simple vacation to relocation or resigning from a soulless job, the message is to bring the passion of living back into your lives and face your fears, if need be.
However, as every Tarot card has its shadow side, collectively and individually, we must still assess the risks of taking action if we do not want to attract needless worries.
