15 feb 2012 > 0/4/13 > Fool/Emperor/Death
In this ‘4’ day which, when added across is first ‘22’ leading to the ‘4’, I give ‘22’ to the Fool. Twenty-two Major Arcana, and the Fool finds him/herself at the beginning as ‘0’. So, the Fool becomes part of this constellation tarot card. It goes a little like this: The Fool says, “Come on, jump into life. Take a change, trust me that is really you, innocent, ready to begin anew journey. You don’t need much, just your instincts and the belief that it will be just fine.” The Emperor say, “Now that you’ve landed, what do you intend to do? You need a home, and stability. You need some rules to abide by and a form to work in.” Then Death comes along with a little transformational Wisdom and says, “Yes, well, do you really need all that stuff? Are all those rules really working for you? Aren’t you feeling stuck and caught in the rat race? And who knows what all is limiting your life, Right? Let it go. Just let go of some of that so you can make some space for what really matters. Surrender Dorothy so you can find your way back home.”
In this invitation for the day, the journey of letting go, trusting in what you think you don’t know, building a form and a structure to live in and with, and then letting it go, transforming and evolving so you can be The Fool, jump into life with the innocence of new beginning and find your way to completion and letting go. Birth/Life/Death, again.
If today is your birthday, these are questions to consider for the whole year. Grab one or all and see what stirs you up. Change the wording around to make it feel right for you. As you ponder these thoughts and questions, please take a moment to sit quietly and breathe. Let your breath guide you into a quiet place for the questions to have a moment to brew and shimmer. Invite your wisdom to be your guide.
