Each of the first 22 cards,
known as the Major Arcana,
are referred to as “Keys”
to understanding ourselves
and our place in the world.
Each Key is an illustration of those concepts.
The first is “the Fool”
often referred to as “zero”:
it is the image of a youth
who has been equipped with all the tools he needs
to make a life for himself
tossed over his shoulder,
hanging on the end of a pole
as if unconcerned.
One hand holds a rose:
something that he is well familiar,
perhaps it is all he is concerned with.
Followed by his dog
he set forth:
off a cliff.
The Fool is attributed to Aleph:
a being that pulls a cart
unconcerned as to where it is going:
a driving force
pulling us along
whether we are paying attention or not.
As an amulet,
Shaped like an egg
with the letter
embossed on the front.
To help one remember
to keep a fresh outlook,
open to new experiences and ideas.
At times one needs to dismiss old habits,
and take the leap of faith required
to move forward in one’s life.
This amulet is for those
who wish to break out of the old molds
and start anew.
