Will the real Fool please step up?

Does the Tarot Fool bring up the rear in a long parade of triumphal figures, a warning about what will happen if one fails on the spiritual path? Or does he appear at the beginning, full of trust and hope, setting out on a new adventure?

Is the dog his faithful companion or a wild beast that threatens to tear him apart or ludicrously expose his privates?

When the Fool turns up do you feel excited and ready to venture forth? Or do you fear your decisions are stupid and that others will think you ridiculous?

Had a great time at Tarot Readers Salon 2015 in New York!

Published April 27, 2015 by Donnalee of Kingston NY

I spent a fantastic quite-long weekend (Thursday morning through Sunday afternoon) at the Tarot School’s Readers Studio ( http://www.tarotschool.com/RS15/index.html ) and Tarot & Psychology Conference, both hosted by Ruth Ann and Wald Amberstone in New York City.  What an excellent time and great chance to meet many folks interested in the subject, including those who taught classes, or brought the tarot decks they had designed, and/or books they had written.  I learned so much, and met so many wonderful people, that it really cheered me up and improved both my mood and my reading skills perceptibly.  I’ll add more as I remember more!
