I tried a spread for a course today (Psalm 119 the third part, the last 7 Majors and the Fool). The course starts with the card of the Devil and ends with the Fool. I did not want to start with the Devil. The theme for it in this course (not normally) is ‘evil’. This is not really something nice and encouraging for a first encounter with a group and a subject. Therefore I will start with the Fool, the last card of the course. I made a ‘Fools Oracle’ with all sorts of spiritual questions. Participants will pull a question from this oracle, an important and leading question in their spiritual life and in the course.
Notes can be made on cards with holes, bound together with a cord. The card with the question will stay on top until the last lesson.
The question that I pulled from the Fools Oracle for myself is: “What is my destiny?”
After pulling a question, the participants draw a tarot card for more information about it. My card is Knight of Wands from the RWS. I need to stop and stand still to reflect, but most of all I need to regain enthusiasm and passion. Hopefully working on the question of my destiny, woven into the assignments of this course, will give me this. But to be honest, the question is more important than the answer.
