A “Fool”ish Quote

The cunning waste their pains;
The wise men vex their brains;
But the simpleton, who seeks no gains,
With belly full, he wanders free
As drifting boat upon the sea.

— Cao Xueqin, The Golden Days

Friday, we have the Fool.

The Fool has a new and young energy. He has enthusiasm, guts, and optimism.

If you planted a seed yesterday or set an intention, today would be the day to set off with it.

Take your first (or next) step. Make a leap.

Such a thing is exhilarating.

When was the last time you acted like a Fool? How did you feel?

Tuesday, January 21, 2014 – Aquarius


Today, we have the Fool.

The Fool is regarded as naive, young, and lacking experience.

It’s not all that bad to be innocent and naively optimistic. Sometimes, it serves a purpose and is done on purpose.

The Sun moves into independent Aquarius today. At first, it may seem at odds with the Fool, but there are some similarities. The Fool in a court is traditionally not subject to the same rules as everyone else. As a result, he was basically free to do whatever he pleased and joke about things others could not.

Will you fly your freak flag today? Is there an area of your life where you could free yourself?

Saturday, December 28, 2013 – The Fool

The Moon has moved into Scorpio. Can you feel it?

For Saturday, we have the Fool card. Typically, the Fool is light and carefree, but with the Moon in Scorpio, the feeling is different. It’s not light and wispy. There’s a tendency to want to lurk.

You may be apt to stay at home and daydream or fantasize the day away. Not bad for a Saturday, right?

Thoughts and desires might bubble to the surface on a day like this. Old memories buried might be remembered. Old and new ideas or visions may come to the forefront.

In a way, it’s a carefree day. You might spend your day reading a book, digesting a movie, or deep in thought. On another level, in the spirit of the Fool card, it’s a good day to be thinking about clearing the decks and letting fresh air in for the new year.

How’s the Moon in Scorpio affecting you? Do you have plans for the New Year?
