Welcome to the first of our articles regarding the major arcana of the mystic tarot.
In this article it is right that we shall discuss the first card in the deck, the card know as The Fool. First in the deck and related to the joker123 card in a standard deck of cards, however the card is numbered zero. It is quite correct that is should be so, as the fool signifies a new beginning in life, the start of a new journey of sorts and everything begins with zero. Zero plus a number becomes that number, but beware, when the card is reversed means it warns of folly, watch where you step, zero times a number remains zero.
Astrologically, the card is governed by the most eccentric of all the planets Uranus, and the airy element which makes it as free as the wind, and is represented by the Hebrew letter Aleph. Its representation of a new beginning is one of general good feeling about the exciting journey ahead, of wild and sometimes reckless abandon, nothing you do can go wrong, expect the unexpected.
Generally, this can be a good and positive card to receive, and unlike the other cards, the fool represents the querent alone. However despite all the good indications there is still the little warning of caution if the querent is contemplating a new venture such as what seems like a sure business deal, or a new job or relationship, be cautious or you may end up looking the fool.
Tarot Card Reading is Simple.
1. Gather Items
Gather together all the items you will need to do your reading, including tarot cards. You want to stay put once you start your reading.
2. Set the Mood
Before you start your tarot reading, consider lighting candles and incense, quietly meditating, or taking some slow deep breaths. This will help you get centered and open. It also creates a sacred space for your tarot reading.
3. Decide on Your Reading Focus
The focus of your tarot reading can be a question or an issue. The key is to choose a question or issue that is very specific. However, you can also do an open tarot reading, where you do not have any question or issue in mind at all — you simply want to see what the tarot cards reveal to you.
4. Connect with Your Tarot Cards
Once you have your question in mind, begin shuffling the tarot cards in any way you feel called to. This is when you focus on connecting you, your question, and the tarot cards. This connection will help bring you a clear tarot reading. You can also cut the cards, once you feel ready to stop shuffling.
