Every Tuesday I select one tarot card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?
Each Wednesday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Wednesday (tomorrow) to see what cards come up.
Today's card is The Fool (reversed). The Fool is the first card of the tarot deck and the first of the Major Arcana cards, which indicate spiritual and life lessons, as opposed to the Minor Arcana cards which are more day-to-day, situational lessons.
In its upright position, The Fool indicates the start of a new journey, learning new things, innocence or inexperience. It's that feeling you get when you are just about to start a new project and are full of excitement but really have no idea what to expect.
In its reversed position (drawn from the deck upside down), it can mean that you have a fear of the unknown. You know you need to move forward, but are hesitant or scared to take your first step. This may leave you feeling afraid to try new things.
The Fool reversed also warns of taking excessive risks and encourages you to carefully consider the situation before you step forward. Do a gut check to see what's real and what's not -- including your fears, the people involved and their motivations, etc. This serves as a "pause" before you move forward too quickly and possibly regret your hastiness.
This can show up in many situations in your life -- relationships, career, finances, etc. You probably have a good idea exactly what area of your life this message is pointing to.
Hear the "pause" message that is available for you now; take time to reflect and tune in, but don't get paralyzed or stuck not moving at all for fear of making the "wrong" move. Instead, brainstorm options that are available to you now. When you feel you are done with your list of ideas, push yourself to come up with at least two more viable options. You may be surprised at your own creativity.
Then take one baby step forward -- so small that others may not even know that you've taken it. Then re-assess and take another one and another, until you are on the road again.
Do this right now while you are thinking about it so you create movement in your life. This is important to you and the sooner you get moving, the better.
