The Fool: I’ve Always Wanted to Live In a Tree House

The card of the day is the FOOL.

There is no better card that illustrates the desire for freedom, adventure, and a generally spontaneous existence than the Fool. With the clothes on your back, a walking stick, a few lucky charms, and a casual pack – you are ready to hit the road! What’s great about this card is that you can take what appears to be a risk and know that your faith (optimism, innocence) will protect you. Now I know some of you might say, that’s crazy talk (because I know you are no fool), but maybe your leap of faith looks like this:

Are you about to quit your high paying job in favor of pursuing a crazy entrepreneurial dream? Do you want to move to a new city with less than $100 in your pocket? Are you a life-long urban dweller who wants to buy a house in the country?

The appearance of the Fool tells me there is a risk that you really want to take, but only you will know if the risk is worth it. Sometimes you just don’t know until you do it. The advice is to stay positive, keep moving forward (toward your dream), and to ask for help as it is needed along the way.

Death: Out with the Old, In with the New

The card of the day is DEATH.

death (11)

Deck used: Morgan Greer Tarot.

The Death card should not be feared; it is a welcome card to see when you are in a state of transition because its appearance indicates that you are working really hard to accept the changes that occurring in your life. How long it takes for these changes to occur with your way of thinking, lifestyle, or with friendships  – I cannot say. I do know that people who no longer serve the person you are TODAY will fall by the wayside, but it will be for the best.

There are two lessons to be learned from the Death card, one lesson is about TRUST, and the second lesson is about ACCEPTANCE. If you trust that your decisions are leading you in the right direction, and accept what is no longer meant to be, you will be able to bring more of your authentic self (spirit, ego, creativity, confidence) into the world.

Exciting stuff, huh?

You might see the Death card appear during any major transition or milestone such as: adolescence to adulthood, marriage, the birth of your first child, during your Saturn Return, buying a new home, stepping into the career you’ve always dreamed of, or any number of other possibilities.

How do YOU use trust and acceptance during a state of transition? Please share your experience with us in the comments section!
