I live by my own rules: none. Sometimes cards will simply jump out of the deck and present themselves, which is what Justice did today, along with the very first card of the entire deck, numbered Zero, The Fool. This life itself is referred to in the Tarot as ‘The Fool’s Journey’ who starts off with nothing, from Zero, the wide world waiting to be discovered, explored and enjoyed as he happily skips along with his eyes to the sky, accompanied by his loyal little dog who travels along at his side. His possessions are few: so few that they’re wrapped in a bandana and tied to the end of a stick, hobo-style. There are a few microscopic musings on the Fool back in the WordPress archives if you’re so inclined.
The Fool is spontaneous, takes chances, goes ‘all in’ (in the image, he looks like he’s about to step over a cliff but with his eyes to the sky, doesn’t notice – his dog won’t let that happen to him anyway), lives in the moment and trusts his heart. He lives in a state of innocence and wonder at the world. This human is joyful and uninhibited, an adventurer. In olden tymes the Fool was the Court Jester, who was the only one who could get away with mocking royalty. He’s funny, this Fool. But he’s no fool, this Fool. “It is the secret of the wise man to appear as a Fool” someone said. The King likes him. He’s ruled by the planet of surprise and the unexpected, Uranus, who is busting some astrological move he hasn’t made in years over our heads right now. That’s probably why the Fool is watching the sky. We’re the ones not looking up.
Yesterday we were reminded of the sober lessons of Justice, the card of Doing The Right Thing. Law and Order, rules, responsibilities. Divorce.
Well, looks like a divorce is final and our Fool is left with fuck-all, but doesn’t care one bit because he got the dog and he’s freeeeeeeeeee to go. I just want to start over, he says, and probably somewhere else. It doesn’t matter where. It’s all good, he’ll just go with the flow.
This could be working outside, around or flaunting the law, which sometimes is necessary.
Here is where oral sex is apparently still illegal in the United States of America:
Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Utah.
I trust you get the point.
