Spooky Tarot Reading..

Is it some short of unintentional incident of is it mean something? Neither i can explain it nor i can believe it. For me Tarot Card is something interesting and i would like to learn a little bit about it. Maybe for some people it just ridiculous witch stuff. Somehow for some people like Gypsy people it is something that they believe in and every single of it mean something. Until then beware!


General Meaning: Pamela Coleman-Smith's artful rendition of an "innocent Fool" archetype (Rider-Waite deck) is often used to represent Tarot in general. Early classical versions of the Fool card, however, portray quite a different character -- a person driven by base needs and urges, who has fallen into a state of poverty and deprivation.

In some instances, he is made out to be a carnival entertainer or a huckster. In others, he is portrayed as decrepit and vulnerable -- as the cumulative result of his delusions and failures. Not until the 20th century do you see the popular Rider-Waite image of the Fool arise -- that of an innocent Soul before its Fall into Matter, as yet untainted by contact with society and all its ills.

Modern decks usually borrow from the Rider-Waite imagery. Most Fool cards copy the bucolic mountainside scene, the butterfly, the potential misplaced step that will send the Fool tumbling into the unknown. Don't forget, however, that the earlier versions of this card represented already-fallen humanity, over-identified with the material plane of existence, and beginning a pilgrimage towards self-knowledge, and eventually, wisdom. The Fool reminds us to recognize the path of personal development within ourselves -- and the stage upon that path where we find ourselves -- in order to energize our movement toward deeper self-realization.

A bearded young man stands upon a high mountaintop. He wears gorgeous vestments crowned by a turban. A radiant sun warms him. He stares into the sky rather than the chasms below. He carries the white rose of life in one hand, and a flowering staff in the other. He is the spirit in search of experience. The Fool knows everything and nothing. He is "0", the symbol of both perfection and nothingness.
The card in the middle represents the creative force behind the project, be it a person, organization, or other entity. The Fool: Fearlessness, imagination, open-mindedness, and an adventurous spirit. Freedom from cares and worries. Ideas, thoughts, and impulses coming from a completely unexpected place. Nonchalance at the threshold of gaining all or losing all. Extravagance and intoxication with life. The pure and undifferentiated power of creation itself, where ultimate knowledge and oblivion are unified.
