Day 2. The Fool.

 

cards

Tarot: 0-The Fool 0-fool
The Fool is a child who is hopeful and open to the world. The elements of fire, air, and earth are present in his supplies, but emotional maturity is missing from this picture as are the cups. This is not always a bad thing. Though the fool can indicate damaging naivete, and warn you to be careful on your new journey, it can also encourage you to begin a new cycle in life with the refreshing outlook of a child. Take a leap of faith.

Success, health, love, justice, & good luck

Lemon balm comforts the heart and drives away sadness. It is said to soothe the nervous system and lift spirits. This is the herb of happy energy, just like the ever-optimistic Fool.

Stone: Citrine

Citrine bursts with color and energy. Perfect for spells & meditations dealing with energy and abundance, the Waxing or Full Moon.

Citrine also attracts abundance, success, and happiness. It is a wonderful stone to have in your collection and especially important for those who struggle with bouts of sadness or are suffering from loss or heartache.

(**NOTE: Depression and ‘sadness’ that lasts for more than two weeks should be treated by a medical professional. Any thoughts of self-harm should lead to immediate medical help. DO NOT think you can cure yourself of a chemical imbalance with teas and stones. DO THINK you can help yourself WHILE a doctor helps you. By taking action, calling a doctor, meditating, and making a potion, you are taking action to help yourself but you are not alone).
