Artist's Description

City Mystic • New York Tarot deck was independently published on Kickstarter in 2014. Now your favorite cards are available in an array of products.

Excerpted from the companion book to the deck, here’s more about this card and image specifically:

0- Fool
From the Brooklyn Bridge, New York City’s
sky scape reveals a grand and dramatic urban
gallery. The Scene is punctuated by the effervescent
Civic Fame statue atop the Manhattan
Municipal Building. It is the third largest statue
in Manhattan at 25 feet tall. Standing barefoot
and adorned in a flowing dress, the figure holds a
crown of laurels heralding glory- a five-sectioned
mural crown representative of the five boroughs.
The right hand carries a shield and olive branch
paying homage to victory and triumph. The sky
opens up and shares its magnificent, often unnoticed
yet non-subtle display of divine beauty.
At the beginning of the story of a life is conception-
an invitation to life is extended and
accepted. Mother’s star gate womb opens and
a soul begins the process of developing into an
independent entity, an embodiment of spirit.
The Fool expresses the essential nature of a person,
place or thing. It is the most intrinsic, basic,
trusting essence, and for this reason, it describes
the part of ourselves and our lives that is privy to
hop into the pond of life, trusting that there will
be water in the pool. The Fool is our archetypal
spiritual essence, our pure potential.
In readings, the Fool is a message of purity,
essence and potential. An invitation is extended
and accepted on a soul level, though the Fool,
the querent, has no idea as to what shall come to
pass. It is the leap of faith in our lives that leads
us into new, exciting, youthful adventures. Like
all leaps, we must ask ourselves if we are being
impulsive and irresponsible, or are following an
urge or invitation from spirit and soul to move
into yet unknown territory.
