The Fool: The Fool is the space in between and it is the space where everything exists. It is both night and day and also neither. Nothing and everything coexist at the same time, in all time, in the now, which is the only time. It is the silence before the sound. The Fool is a conundrum, a riddle without an answer until one is given. You are here, now, in this empty place filled with everything that can ever be. You get to fill this space with whatever you wish. The path doesn’t exist until you take your first step and then a next. With each step, the path takes shape, gains definition. You are the center of the world and it is your choice that will create it. Make your choice, make the leap. Start your new journey and see what wonderful things come of it. (pg. 74) Continue reading
The Gorgon’s Tarot
by Dolores Fitchie – 2014
Published by Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.
“A round, mostly black and white deck with two lurking splashes of color, The Gorgon’s Tarot is an innovative and inspired way to read the Tarot. With Dolores Fitchie’s discreet, tongue-in-cheek humor, it’s also engaging and fun to read! Unabashedly feminine and a restrained paean of praise to the animal kingdom, it features a largely female cast, lost of animal companions, commentators, bodyguards and familiars, and a mixed bag of traditional and not-so-traditional imagery, with traces of unorthodoxy here and there.” (excerpt from the bottom of box)
