The fool is a great rebel, able to thwart convention and tell the truth without restraint. Your heart is a wonderful, powerful, sacred fool! It cares not for the right way to do things. It cares not for what the mind says is real and not real. It lives according to an inner wisdom that cannot be dictated to or controlled by anything! It loves, it lives, and it is what it is!
This oracle heralds a time – now or imminent – when you will feel inspired, alive and passionate for what you can offer to the world. It says to you, ‘Don’t try to be appropriate, don’t try to be socially acceptable and worry about what others may think about what you are doing – just be. If you want to wear a mad hat whilst doing so, fine.”
The sacred fool in you is willing to leave behind what has been because it no longer feels right to stay attached to it. The sacred fool in you trusts life completely. It would never occur to this part of you to try to outsmart life or resist its flow. It recognizes that the mind is a monkey puppet on strings. More often than not, it is cajoled into fear when it could be playfully dwelling in the radical spontaneity of life. So, the sacred fool in you urges your mind to let itself be pulled into joy by your heart strings not into fear and doubt by the controlling machines of mass media.
This oracle brings you a message. It’s time for you to play. It’s time to let life happen in a completely unreserved unscripted way. The more bizarre, left of field, unexpected and apparently ridiculous the better. This might not feel safe or appropriate at first. That is okay. That is good actually. It is a sign that you are breaking with your own self-imposed conventions. it is time to move beyond them now because life adventure is calling to you.
This is wonderful news. It is the desire of life to operate more radically through you so that you become the conduit through which miracles and crazy wild synchronicity can occur. You are becoming more electric. You are more plugged into the apparent randomness of life. The sacred fool goes with this, without having to understand any of it. (Which is good! Trying to access even one genuine glimpse of life’s unfathomable genius would probably make one’s head explode.)
As you take this journey, you may find that people around you are challenged. You might unintentionally cause them to rethink the way they life their lives. They may question whether the way they are living is the only way for them or even the best way. At first, they may react rather than take responsibility. The sacred fool in you doesn’t engage with this. It is what it is and it rises and falls as it will. It doesn’t stop you from your merry dance of unconventional being.
If you find yourself making choices that have others questioning your sanity, then you are on the right course. You may feel that you are quite possibly going insane, but you are not crazy. You are just approaching enlightened awareness. There is a moment – sometimes a rather long one – when we wake up to life, shed our attachment to mass opinion and float in a completely different state of being. We might find that no one is really able to understand or connect with us, to the point that we question our state of mind. Stay with that. It will pass. You will eventually see that you are becoming sane in an insane world. The tables will turn and you will gain great inner freedom and creative juice. Stay on your path, stay on the journey, remember to take nothing too seriously and it will all work out perfectly.

There are many opinions around you. Some are helpful but others are distracting you from your truth. Although it can be helpful to hear the thoughts of others, when it all comes down to it, you will have to come to your own decisions. Do you know how unique you are? How your path is your path to be chosen, lived and created – only by you? Someone else cannot become the source of your decision-making power without negative repercussions for both of you in the long run.
This oracle comes to you because you have become swept up in thinking things through. You have been thinking about which way to go with a matter of importance and you have got a bit stuck in the logic of the decision-making process. Sometimes we have to accept that any path is a path forward and if it is not the best path, we can change our approach later on if needed. If we are slightly off-base with a decision, life will often shift and move to guide us back on track. We don’t have to be perfect. In fact, there is rarely ever a perfect choice to be made – just some choices that feel more heart honoring than others. Sometimes we can only really know in hindsight if we made the best choice possible in that moment. At the time of decision-making, we only really have our internal wisdom to rely upon. And that is all that we need.
This oracle card is telling you there is no need to punish or traumatize yourself with possible choices. Just making a choice will set things in motion. The best way to catalyze the situation you are in and bring about healing change, stimulate your creative juices and find a more inspired, energized and enjoyable approach to your life, is to just make a choice based on what you feel right now. Not based on anyone else’s feelings. Just yours. So ask yourself – what do I feel right now? And go from there.
If you cannot relate to the need to make a choice between two or more clear alternatives, then the oracle brings you this message, “You are at a crossroads in your journey and the choices you make at this time – even simply choosing to do things a little differently, without much drama associated with the decision – are powerful triggers for some great magic to enter your life.
Take a different approach to something. Be open to that which makes you uncomfortable but could be exciting and interesting. Even small adventures will yield big rewards right now. It matters less that you do the most wonderful thing ever (too much pressure!) and more that you simply take an action from your heart. Open up to the creative magic of life and don’t worry about how it is all going to work out. The bigger creative flow of life is sorting out all the details and you are not immune to that plan. In fact, you are natural part of it! So just spend some time with your own feelings and know that all is going to work out perfectly.

Just as we receive gifts in the physical world, through the thoughtfulness of other, to acknowledge how much we mean to them, so too we receive gifts on other levels – including the spiritual level.
A spiritual gift is something that happens through grace. We can ask for help and it may be given in response to that request. All requests for help are answered. A spiritual gift can also be given without us asking for anything at all – at least not consciously. Sometimes it is our hearts that cry out for help. While we are busy getting on with our to-do lists, we don’t often stop to think about what our hearts might need. If we do, and an immediate solution is not obvious, we just get on with life either letting the issue be or taking the painful option of dwelling on it without seeing how it might be resolved.
However, there is a loving benevolence in life that knows exactly what we need and how it can best come to us, even when we are not quite so clear. This force actively seeks to assist us in walking our life path. That loving sweetness is being offered to you now, or soon will be, in the form of a spiritual gift.
Your spiritual gift may be symbolic. It may be something that seems ordinary but holds a lot of meaning to you. It might be an object that catches your eye and mesmerizes you. You might think you are appreciating how lovely it looks but it is the underlying energy that captures you. Something in the appearance, color or shape that speaks to you and is, perhaps, answering an unspoken prayer. It is not the object that is the gift. That is just the wrapping. The actual gift is subtle, yet effective empowerment. it is like a spiritual booster shot that helps you move forward in life with additional zing, extra strength and greater peace.
You will be empowered to accomplish tasks that you may have nearly, but not quite, been able to manage on your own through the bestowal of a spiritual gift.
The spiritual gift may or may not be recognizable to you. It may be very obvious – an offer, a windfall, a trip, a friendship, a new lover or a remarkable healing in a current relationship. It might be far more subtle and even more powerful such as a jolt of energy that allows you to perceive things differently all of a sudden and perhaps solve a problem that has been plaguing you. It will be bestowed as and when it is needed, in the form that will best serve the love in you.
This oracle also brings you the message: “Let yourself be helped.” Assistance is coming your way so act on it and say yes. It is very significant as the assistance is coming from the hand of life itself. Trust it.
This oracle also comes with the message that you are to trust in the things that you feel and say to others without knowing why. It moves them. You might not understand, but through trust you are allowing yourself not to over-think and censor yourself. As such you are able to become a vessel through which the spiritual gift can be passed on to others. Don’t block yourself. Let life happen through you. Only benefit can come from this.
