The Mystic Fool on the Serpent Path Home: Unveiling Masks and Mirrors of the Self in Tarot
October 29, 2017
“The right way to wholeness is made up of…fateful detours and wrong turnings. It is…not straight but snakelike, a path that unites the opposites…a path whose labyrinthine twists and turns are not lacking in terrors.” ∼ CG Jung
Why is Tarot relevant?
The Ancient Hermetic Tree of Life viewed through a Jungian lens serves as a ladder for the archetypal Fool’s return journey to source along the winding Serpent Path.The initiatory paths of the 22 tarot cards of the Major Arcana symbolize the masks we wear and the mirrors we encounter as we face shadows in our evolving selves.
In a time of vast planetary changes, polarities, transitions, quickening and metamorphosis, it’s easy to find ourselves caught in grief, fear and despair.
The Fool is an apt symbol of the journeying Self in each of us. Our individual pathways are unique but we must each undergo initiations of the Collective that lead us from folly to wisdom.
Exploring and dreaming into the archetypes represented by these “keys” reveals the alchemical processes that are embedded and alive in the Tree of Life and in our lives. When we invite dream, imagination, focus and play, and embodiment of these archetypal images, we are accessing the power of the collective and bringing the energies into matter, thus opening to the Soul’s journey to Self.
