We often think of The Fool as an individual who is going along, enjoying the physical/material realities of life. The Fool may come close to the edge of a cliff, but to this point has been guided to safety. But The Fool eventually falls off that cliff and finds him/herself in a new world. And at this point we usually jump to the next card in the deck.
We know that The Fool will begin to take stock of this new world and all the tools at his/her disposal. The Fool experiences this new world as The Magician. But today we need to talk about the time just after The Fool takes the fall. Before they pick themselves up and take stock of their surroundings.
We need to address the losses The Fool perceives, and set the record straight.
Temporarily Over It
You finally got over something. You reached a point of acceptance. And you’ve actually been enjoying life for a change. Sound familiar? This is you being The Fool. This is not to say that you are “foolish.” Just free to enjoy your life without all of those pesky, limiting emotions getting in the way.
But life’s journey is perpetual. You may soon look around only to feel that you are dissatisfied. Maybe you want more. Or maybe the life you’ve been leading has run its course and it’s time for something new. We tend to look at these feelings as something negative. But they are nothing of the sort.
When you begin to feel dissatisfied with life, or wanting even more from it, you might be tempted to say “I’m never satisfied” or “when will it be enough?”. Others may say it to you, too. All you know is that it feels as though you’re constantly chasing something. And it’s exhausting. This is the feeling of loss The Fool experiences moments after the fall.
The only thing you need to realize is that you have slipped off of that cliff and a new journey is set out before you. And even though the surroundings look the same, you are very different. There is another world for you to experience.
Don’t Waste Too Much Time
Don’t spend too much time wondering why you’re never satisfied. Or too much time convincing yourself why you should be satisfied. And don’t let thoughts of what you might lose weigh you down. Because the truth is, all that you have comes with you.
By now you’ve had enough beginnings to know that this fall has been caused by you. Deep down, you wanted this. Because you know that there is more to experience than the life you just left behind. You are just in a period of brief mourning. The confusion immediately after the fall.
You have so much experience with beginnings that deep down you know that there is so much more to come…once you start taking a look around.
