0 - THE FOOL
(First Card of the Major Arcana)
“Today is the first day of the rest of your life.”
“In the beginning is the Word”
The tarot card deck is made of the Major Arcana (21 archetypes) and 4 suits that are similar to a regular playing deck. In this series of newsletters, I will describe the major arcana. The tarot describes archetypes-each having a meaning of its own, a meaning if the card is reversed (upside down), and a meaning within the layout (or throw) itself. Cards relate to each other and the positions in which they appear.
The Fool is the first card in the major deck – its number is 0. The Fool is the egg, newborn, the child, the beginning of new venture. The fool has self-confidence, courage, faith and protection. He is accompanied by prudence. The fool will go everywhere with confidence and without fear. Change is taking place.
The Fool’s number is 0 – the shape of the egg - in most decks today. In the past, the Fool has been 22, the last card of the deck. The Tarot is a path and a spiral. Each card can be an archetype of qualities within one’s own personality or a personality type that you may meet. Without the Fool in our personalities, we would never leave the house.
The Fool reminds us that with each breath the opportunity to be “courageous and kind.” That even the most daunting journey starts with one step.
It is my sincere desire to help people achieve enlightenment and peace, develop intuition and sensitivity to subtle energies. These qualities, once experienced, will change your life.
The suggestions I give during a reading are one path to greater happiness and achievement of your unique purpose in this earthly dimension. I use the same techniques gleaned from years of prayer, meditation, classes and experience, to develop and maintain the joy of life and security. Making time in your life for meditation, creativity, writing, energy work, and affirmations can be the key to your own greater joy, health and happiness.
You may have noticed that I also practice aroma therapy. If you are scheduling a reading in person with me at Isis Bookstore and Healing Oasis, you will experience aromatherapy. I diffuse therapeutic essential oils in the room. The oils I use are distilled from organically-grown herbs, flowers, plants and trees.
I am a Young Living Distributor. Please go to my website athttp://www.HerbalEssentialOils.com for information on the oils that I sell.
I am available at no cost to discuss the efficacy of therapeutic-grade essential oils. If you are interested, I would be happy to meet with you in person to explore the essential oils.
If enough people respond, I will schedule my class on "Introduction to Essential Oils". If I schedule a class, I would like to have at least 10 participants. I would be happy to do a class in your home for your friends. That would be a party similar to the old "Tupperware" parties.
If you are interested in using essential oils as a vital part of your natural and organic health routine, please either e-mail me or give me a call at 720-732-8056. Please leave a message or you can also message me at that number.
FAIRY WANDS AND HOUSES
A new endeavor in my business is the carving of Fairy wands (shown above) and houses (shown below). The wand shown above is charged to remove negative energies and for healing. Wands and houses will be available for sale in the near future.
