Knights and Fools


The image of a Knight, for me, suggests one who has had training and developed skills, has confidence in him/herself, has a general purpose in life, and is oriented to taking on missions with expectations of success.

The Fool, it seems, has a contrary meaning. No knowledge of training or of skill sets, total unconcern over his unpreparedness, little thought about where he/she is going, and being oriented to pursuing curiosity and discovery without expectations.

These are the differences as I see them. I'm sure that the similarities Jewel mentioned could be expanded also. The end result is that we all often find ourselves in one role or the other. That is why we relate so well to most of the card images. They are us, we are them. Mirrors. Dave
