One of the THREE INITIATES and the Holy Trinity and the Alchemical Trinity representing the 3 stages or grades marking one’s Spiritual Evolution.
The Fool Travels the Road Less Beaten
Led by the Spirit, The Ethers, The DiViNE speaks to the Fool. It causes the Fool that once thought he knew it all to realize he knows nothing. He then starts his quest for DiViNE knowledge.
THE FOOL’S BEGINNING
THE NUMBER 0 (ZERO)
The zero is a neutral number representing both the feminine and the masculine and the balance between the two.
This DiViNE Number also represents the balance of the spiritual and the physical realms.
Astrological the ZERO point is the zodiac of Aries, the beginning.
The Lamb (The Christ) symbolizes the zero point in Aries which is the Spring Equinox according to the book of Revelations.
Furthermore, the four horsemen that are mentioned riding across the earth represent Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Aquila (Scorpio) which are the four seasons.
THE FOOL, THE ALPHA & OMEGA
The Fool Card corresponds to the Hebrew letter aleph (the 1st letter). In Kabbalah the two connected Sephirah, Chokhmah and Keter are represented by “The Fool” Card. This also ties the Fool with Archangel Raziel.
Here the Fool is NOT THE FOOLISH MAN but THE WISE MAN.
KETER means ‘crown‘ which represents the great mysteries and the unknowable nature of God, The Source. This is located between Binah and Chokhmah.
CHOKHMAH is the 2nd of the 10 and means WISDOM. The ‘beginning‘ force of creation and conscious intelligence.
Biblically this links the Fool to the book of Genesis the creation story, Psalms 104:24 and Revelation 22:13 among several others.
Everything comes full circle, the Alpha (beginning) and Omega (ending)
After the ‘Fool’ has journeyed through the entire deck he returns to the beginning to embark on the same journey but on a higher level of consciousness.
Fool travels through the great mysteries of life and the main human archetypes.
SIDE NOTE: The World Card, The 21st Card in the Tarot is the completion of the cycle for the Fool.
- For three reasons, one the completion of one full year and four seasons, astrologically.
- And two, it represents the four primary archetypes of a person.
- And lastly, 2+1=3 a number for completion and the Trinity.
