Thoth Deck Correspondences: 0-The Fool & key-17-The Star.
It may be interesting to note that in ancient text, the "Holy Ghost" was considered to be feminine rather than the masculine concept of masculine, and she was/is known as Sophia, The Mother and Beloved of the Father. The Star card promotes the image of Sophia, while the Fool, promotes the image of the Father. To the ancients, the Fool(The Green Man) was both wise and "innocent as the children". He is Joker (Trickster) and Wisdom.

The Fool card can be placed at the beginning of the Tarot deck or at the end, as can the Blank rune.

Often the Star card is associated with the "Mother Nature" of the Universe (The Universe is Natural----in fact there isn't any Super Natural---there is just Nature we don't understand yet.) and the Fool is The Green Man-or Father Nature. It may help our understanding if we remember that Male is Electric Force and Female is Magnetic Force, so in essence we are dealing with Universal Magnetic Conscious and Universal Electric Consciousness. When both are united in harmony----We have Sophia, "the whole of spirit".
