Cotd for Tuesday, September 16, 2014 from The Druid Craft Tarot by Philip & Stephanie Carr-Gomm. Illustrated by Will Worthington.
The Fool: A Journey of discovery. If you receive this card in a reading it signifies a sense of youthful optimism, and perhaps a new beginning. It encourages confidence, faith and courage as you face a new project or new phase in your life. It may even suggest that you should take a risk and try something new or unconventional. Trust in your inner knowing. Life is an adventure – a journey of discovery to be enjoyed. (pg. 102)
Staying optimistic and open minded is key. Put your troubles on hold, they aren’t going anywhere, and you taking a break from “worrying” about them, likely won’t change them anyway. Besides, some distance can only do you good.
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt
The Fool reinforces taking advantage of the new opportunities that were and/or will be presented to you. You’re being asked to take a leap of faith and take a (calculated) risk, especially with your resources. (see yesterday’s cotd post) Contrary to what you may think, you’d do well to remember that The Fool is willing to take a chance and has faith that all will be well, this does not mean that he is acting foolishly, necessarily.
It’s “Take-a-Chance” Tuesday!
