“The fool who persists in his folly will become wise” ~ William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell
The Fool is a universal archetype which can be recognized in every culture around the world.
The Fool lives free of the yokes and bonds placed on us by societal expectations. He is an expression of the wonder of youth; when the world was new and life knew of no limitations.
Looking to the Major Arcana of the Tarot, the Fool is the beginning of the journey of wisdom and ascension. Thus, he is a companion who can reveal the truths you may not want to hear, or not yet realized that were a part of your life.
As we grow older, we think that we have grown beyond the Fool. But realize that you are still treading upon the Fool’s Journey. The empty wisdom from this intuitive part of your nature may be the most powerful guide upon your journey through life, and to ascension.
Upon Fool’s journey, follow your intuition with an open heart as you step out into the unknown.

Why Engage the Fool? Mastery!
The Fool’s Journey leads to mastery, which comes from the repetition of a task until it is fully ingrained and synthesized into your being.
