THE FOOL'S JOURNEY

From the Fool—whose card is enigmatically numbered with a zero—to the ultimate World card, the images in the major arcana have intrigued, inspired, and confounded tarot users for centuries. Are these cards an illustrated story? Do they display the stages of life, progressing from dynamic beginnings to the eventual knowledge of all things? Do they offer a spiritual blueprint for humans to better understand their shared goals and obstacles? I will be your guide on the Fool’s Journey, a tour of unfolding archetypal scenes in rich detail on cards 0 (The Fool) through 21 (The World). Deepen your relationship to the major arcana using a new edition of a 15th-century Italian tarot deck you can keep: The Medieval Scapini Tarot. Additionally, you’ll take home a set of flashcards I'll prepare to assist you in your further adventures and studies on the Fool’s Journey.
