APRIL 1 is April Fool’s Day a day for MERRY PRANKSTERS, HOAXES, COMEDY, JESTER’s and just plain fun.
Where did the Holiday begin? Perhaps from the Roman festival of HILARIA held on March 25? Many people believe this holiday started in Iran as the 13th day of the Persian New year. In France it is referred to as Poison d’Avril – April Fish. It is a common day celebrated in many countries around the world.
Hey we all need some laughs after such a freaking’ long cold Polar Vortex we have endured up here in the north. And to help us work through the Grand CArdinal Cross energies.
Of course to those who know and LOVE the Tarot, the FOOL is the PRIMAL symbol. One to be honored.
The Fool is ZERO, naught, nothing, empty, the void, pure potential. And also Master Number 22, the End of the Archetypal Journey which the Tarot guides and initiates us into. The Fool doesn’t really fit in anywhere and he can be everywhere.
INSPIRATIONAL CARD of the Day THE FOOL Rider Waite Deck
The Fool is traditionally pictured as being a young male in tattered clothes, about to embark on a journey. With the Sun at his back and distant mountains, he gazes upwards. Everything he owns he carries in a small sack, he is not weighed down. The Fool is a free spirit. He carries a white rose in his left hand- all Feminine symbols, the White Goddess, intuitive connection. He has a small white dog, his pure instincts, at his heels as his companion, as Dorothy had her little dog Toto with her in the Wizard of Oz… The Fool is about to step off of a cliff in a state of total trust and innocence. The Fool is an ARCHETYPAL presence. Totally innocent, naive, open, already enlightened and living in the Present. No past no future only NOW. The eternal now, the present.
The KING always had a COURT JESTER or FOOL by his side.
Jester’s were popular in Ancient Egypt. The Court Jester could tell the King or Queen bad news that no other could. They had a privileged position. The Punch and Judy puppet shows of England stem from this kind of Buffoonery. Monty Python does as well. The Fool is your greatest teacher, he never takes himself or anything else very seriously. The Fool is the whole inner child, curious, open, playful, involved in life. So BE a FOOL today. AND not just on APRIL 1st. Make it every day. What do you care what anybody thinks? TRUST stay in your heart. Laugh at the world and how seriously everyone takes themselves. Fall into a puddle. Blurt out something stupid. Take a huge risk. SOME FAMOUS FOOLS: Charlie Chaplin of course, The Marx Brothers, Steve Martin, Luciille Ball, Jim Carey, Steve Carell, Eddie Murphy- All comedian’s, those who make us laugh at ourselves.
