The Fool’s Journey – A guide to the symbolic language of the Universe

Hear ye, hear ye, come one come all, gather round, brace yourself and welcome to the Fool's Journey. A Magical Mystery Tour like no other, a journey that teaches Kings and Fools alike the secret symbolic language of the Universe. The mysteries of the tarot often presumed to be a mere fortune tellers prop actually contain forgotten treasures, the hidden archetypal language of the subconscious mind.

No, this is not a simple game of cards or some witches tool to predict the future, these are but superficial uses of something with a power that goes much deeper. Successful travel up and down the Tree of Life opens one up to the mysteries of the Universe. This is your initiation into the minds of the Gods.

The Rider-Waite-Smith deck first published in 1909 by the Rider Company and illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith at the instruction of Golden Dawn Magician A.E. Waite was one of the first tarot decks combining the symbolic and occult knowledge of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, with influences from the legendary 19th Century Magician Eliphas Levi. Though Tarot as a game dates back to the 15th century Europe and perhaps even earlier into Ancient Egypt if the rumours be true, this deck when it began printing in the early 1900's has become one of the most well known and widely used decks with over a 100 million copies estimated to exist across the world.

The cards themselves appear to tell a story, the journey of the Fool from when he leaves home in search of a Lover, Fortune, Fame and Glory. Where he will end up he does not know, nonetheless he is possessed by a desire to travel and discover the world for himself. Along the way he meets some interesting characters who are but reflections of himself, is initiated into some sort of cult, he rides a chariot with abandon, discovers his inner strength, meets death on a cross of his own making and rises again 3 days later a Star.

The Fool's journey is the journey of the journey of every child to become and adult, of every Magician or Witch, King or Queen. The story is the same one we're all playing out as we discover that with great power comes great responsibility, we learn we must temper our wills with judgement or succumb to lunacy. It is by the light of the Sun that the Devil hides in shadow, justice can never be truly served if there is something or someone missing from our court.
