Looking for the appropriate amulet may at times seem tricky.
The Tarot supplies us with a wide variety of lore to draw from…
As a present,
The Fool may appear like a gag-gift,
but not necessarily.
The Fool represented in the Tarot suggests the “beginning of things”..
This is why I selected the shape of an egg.
It’s primal shape holds many possibilities.
The “Alph” embossed on the shell suggests a sense of the inhalation before a long tale.
This could be a gift to a graduate or on a birthday.
If you are “starting over” within your life,
this could be a fresh,
Spring-like step in a healthier direction.
In the book “Stranger in a Strange Land”,
Robert Heinlein wrote for his character Michael
(a human rescued from Mars and raised by Martians):
“I am only an Egg”, meaning
“I am new at this, I am Young and willing to learn”.
Mistakes happen when one takes a chance and throws caution to the wind,
or perhaps attempts something that is (indeed) imposable,
but that is how we learn.
(Don’t do That again!).
Sometimes The Fool is unaware that something could be impossible;
attempts it and succeeds;
it is then the Fool becomes a Hero
– unaware that the transformation has taken place.
(I did what?)
Wearing the Fool as an amulet
may be a constant reminder to
“Listen carefully, as if you have never heard it before”,
celebrating Life as a Child,
Embracing new experiences as we begin a new adventure.
