Today’s card is one of the most recognizable in the Tarot. Even those who aren’t versed in Tarot can tell you the name of this one usually. In Pamela Steele’s fabulous Steele Wizard Tarot, her Fool faces a decision. Take the known road or the unknown. Should she or he follow the dragonfly (I think that’s a dragonfly) off into the distance not knowing if the path actually will go over the mountains?
How often do we come to these tiny (and not so tiny) crossroads. Think back on your life and choices made. What if you had stayed in that “not healthy for anyone” relationship? What if you hadn’t got fired? What if you had finished your business major instead of cutting class to become an itinerant musician? What if you let go of all of the what if’s and just wandered?
What if I told you that every mistake wasn’t?
What if I told you that every hard choice wasn’t?
What if I told you that where you are, right now, is the exact spot you are supposed to be in this very moment?
It doesn’t mean you are trapped. There will always be at least two roads to travel.
The one you know.
The one you don’t.
It doesn’t matter which one you pick, you see. That’s the Fool’s secret. This journey that we are all on leads us to the lessons and loves and lives that we need. Trust in the journey.
Whether you walk with God or the Gods or any version in-between, trust your Higher Spirit. You are being guided. You are being loved. You are on the right path.
And? You know what? If you don’t like this place where you are right now?
You have a choice. Want some help making that choice? See me for a reading via Skype, phone or email.
Seek joy, y’all.
