  1. This is very unusual! I will meditate on this one. Thank you for sharing, Auntie.

    • Hi Pearl,
      This version of Trump 0 is an adaption of the standard Golden Dawn design for the Fool – a naked child reaching out to pluck a yellow rose from a rose-bush while holding a wolf in check. A.E. Waite, not wanting to reveal the, at that time, secret Golden Dawn pictures, fused the ideas carried by this image with the traditional depiction of the Fool as a beggar alongside a dog to produce the Waite-Smith Fool.
      Best wishes,
      Auntie

Maybe he think he will find happiness when he reaches the top rose, when in truth, they are all the same. The child has the animal to contend with, pulling him in another direction..
