I realized that one year ago today I was getting ready to board this plane to Egypt. It was such an incredible adventure and so much about me has changed since then. I was thinking about how much I would love to relive this experience and since I can't logically go back this minute, I thought it would be fun to go back through my memories and my pictures and have another visit if only in mind. And since this is a blog relating to tarot, I wanted to choose a card from one of the Egyptian decks that I actually took with me that represents my mindset as I went along. So this post represents the first day of my trip.
Yep. The Fool card. This card is assigned the number Zero in the deck. It suggests that one major phase of your life is wrapping up and a new one is about to begin. In the Rider-Waite deck, the figure has his bag packed and is taking a moment to reflect on his journey so far. In this deck the cat represents Spirit pushing (or scratching, LOL) the person in order to get them moving on their way. This card is about having trust and faith that even though you might be afraid or unsure of yourself or what the future might bring, everything is going to be okay. If you know me at all, you know that I am a giant fan of the cat Goddess Bast so I love that the cat is encouraging the person rather forcefully to just GO! That is exactly what Bast did to me and that is exactly what I did. More tomorrow...
