I thought I’d start again with the joyful, Wanderer; The Fool of this deck. Let’s discuss him a little more.
The first card of any deck, when you open it, can make or break you looking at the other seventy-seven cards. Thankfully, this deck just makes you want to turn it over, to see what The Wanderer looks like!
You’re often told to never judge a book by its cover, and the same can be said with any of the Tarot decks that are out there. This I find more true, especially if pictures can tell you a thousand words.
This thousand words, begin with the rainbow bridge. I mean, come on, who on earth puts their trust in a bridge that is made from a rainbow? Well, clearly, this person, The Wanderer. They’re so trusting that things will fall into place for them, that those of us watching, are astonished when they actually are in place! They’re not carrying any baggage, save the clothes that they wear upon their back. Maybe that is why they’re light enough to cross a rainbow bridge.
Trust is one key aspect I see with this card. Though, it’s not the only one.
Self-belief is another, very strong characteristic I see with this person. It’s not just that they’re confident, they really and I mean really, believe in themselves. They don’t care what others think of them, they’re not living up to the expectations of others and trapping themselves in a cage that they’ll then spend years, getting out of. How I wish I had that time again! I’d be a very different woman now, I’ll wager.
I walked the path I walked and looking back, it wasn’t great in places. However, it’s brought me to this moment in time, to appreciate my children, my husband, the path I’ve walked. I’ve learned a bucket load of things on the way, there’s still more to learn.
I often wonder if this Wanderer is the younger, mid teens me. Could it be me now? I wish at times, we could go back and change just one thing (reminds me of Little Lies by Fleetwood Mac, the first album of theirs that I ever heard). I love the Tango in the Night album. I played it almost as constantly as I did Clannad when I was growing up. If this were one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it would be amazing, wouldn’t it?
So, let’s reflect on this card. Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
What are you going to do with it?
