Over the past few years, my perspective on The Fool/Le Mat/La Fou has changed a lot.
This card is from the Rolla Nordic Tarot, and she considered it to be the true Magus of the Tarot.
I’m beginning to see her point, in that within the Fool is the entire realm of all possibilities (she called Trump I “The Juggler”, which fits well with my growing understanding of TI as misdirection.)
As Gandalf told Frodo, “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off too.”
Is it more foolish to leave home in Quest/Journey, and learn our lessons, or to remain there, “safe and secure” in ignorance? After all, “ignorance is bliss” as well.
