THE FOOL'S JOURNEY
78 PICTURED CARDS make up what's called 'the fool's journey'. the images originally drew from life in mid-15th century france, turning political satire into the archetypal story-telling cards we know today. each card represents a concept, broken down into 2 categories - the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana.
the Major Arcana are comprised of 21 major archetypes and can encompass a broad range of interpretations, though generally where they appear in a reading, they tend to dominate. the Minor Arcana are further broken down into 4 suites, represented by the 4 alchemical elements - Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. they can also be interpreted as representing the 7 base chakras - Pentacles as Root, Wands as a combination of Sacral and Solar Plexus, Cups as Heart and Swords as Throat, Ajna and Crown.
HOW I READ
WHEEL OF LIFE
IN PERSON, i offer my deck to the querent (recipient of the reading) to shuffle. by doing so, it allows their subconscious an opportunity to build a story that will ultimately deliver the messages needed at the time. in an online reading, i take a moment to 'bridge', or to ask my guides to connect with the querent's, in order to deliver their messages through the zero-point field. once i feel sufficiently connected, i shuffle the cards on the querent's behalf.
the spread i use to begin each reading is called Wheel of Life - a variation of the 'Medicine Wheel'. their are 8 cards that make up the 'outer circle' of the reading, which represent the 'now' state. it helps me to peer into the current ruling themes within the querent's Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual bodies. there are then 3 cards in the center of the spread, representing the actions and steps the querent might make next based off of where they stand. lastly, i pull the card at the bottom of the deck, which i call the Anchor, representing the central theme of the spread, or the journey's end. From there, the querent may ask further questions to help gain insight into any of those realms, hopefully to guide one to decisions that better serve their highest good and potential - or to inform and prepare them for universal movements and the possible events which may result thereof.
**disclaimer: I do not offer readings for parties who are not present. should you choose to focus on a relationship or potential relationship of any kind, our goal will be to discern how you show up for yourself and your partner - not how they show up for you. if you would like to gain further insight, please book the 'couple's reading' and make sure your partner is present and/or gives written or verbal consent to participating.
