it figures...

Just this morning, I was thinking what a fool I have been throughout my life to actually trust people whom I love. I seem to always end up forgotten and undeniablly betrayed. Today, I take this quiz "what Tarot Card Are YOU?". Lo and behold!!! It figures...I'm the fool! HA!

While it states the fool card is not necessarily a bad card, I don't agree with it at all. Often times I find myself jumping off that proverbial cliff in life, only to feel like Wyle E. Coyote...falling falling falling til I splat on the ground.

The Fool Card
You are the Fool card. The Fool fearlessly begins the journey into the unknown. To do this, he does not regard the world he knows as firm and fixed. He has a seemingly reckless disregard for obstacles. In the Ryder-Waite deck, he is seen stepping off a cliff with his gaze on the sky, and a rainbow is there to catch him. In order to explore and expand, one must disregard convention and conformity. Those in the throes of convention look at the unconventional, non-conformist personality and think What a fool. They lack the point of view to understand The Fool's actions. But The Fool has roots in tradition as one who is closest to the spirit world. In many tribal cultures, those born with strange and unusual character traits were held in awe. Shamans were people who could see visions and go on journeys that we now label hallucinations and schizophrenia. Those with physical differences had experience and knowledge that the average person could not understand. The Fool is God. The number of the card is zero, which when drawn is a perfect circle. This circle represents both emptiness and infinity. The Fool is not shackled by mountains and valleys or by his physical body. He does not accept the appearance of cliff and air as being distinct or real. Image from: Mary DeLave
