Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-0-The Fool & The Legens Tarot-O- The Fool

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-0-The Fool & The Legends Tarot-0-The Fool:

In both the Thoth Deck and the Legends Tarot , the familiar green man image is used. This is an ancient symbol of the expressive,active, male force of spring. The male force, is known as "electric" and is an aggressive growth force, while the feminine of Spring is magnetic and forms the vessel that holds the electric force so it may become living forms.

Anne Stokes, is the artist responsible for the lavish illustrations of the Legends Tarot.












She is concentrating on the art of myth and legend, thus the name of Legends Tarot. These are spectacularly beautiful cards that most find fun to read. Even her introduction card is lavishly done.One can find this Tarot Deck on Amazon.com. 
Her interpretations, are mostly traditional, yet the images can often be more Arcane, than the descriptions let on. I will do my best to interpret those of the occult as well as the mundane meanings.

The Legends Tarot-0-The Fool:
Illustrates a fey child, who could even be a Leprechaun or a Woodland Elf.  Whoever this child is, they are gleeful, innocent and full of wonder. These are often the traits associated with the Fool tarot card.
The Oak tree, whose leaves form the collar around the wood elf's neck, and whose acorns upon which this elf sits, are usually the abode of Dryad's but here we see a young playful elf.  

In mythology of many cultures,  Elves could be beautiful, or ugly; playful or dangerous. During very ancient times, elves were considered to be Ghosts of the dead; However, that changed into a separate belief in 5th dimensional beings or spirits, who are in charge of plants, water, air and fire.  This young elf on the Legends Tarot, seems to be in-charge of glee as a young "Green Man" of druid legends.
Traditionally, the Fool, represents the Spirit, pure, free, innocent and full of wonder.


In comparison, the Qabalistic Thoth Deck Tarot, also shows the Green Man of Spring, a bit more mature, who is seen horned as a Trickster, implying the trickery of  self-deception.

Symbols of the Holy Spirit, the white dove, the new soul on its journey, the butterfly are also included in this card; however, this card is Qabalistic and tends to go deeper into the Arcane that the Tarot of the more traditional Tarot decks.

In past blogs, I have pointed out that the Fool is a Path itself, called the 11th path of Aleph; Aleph meaning Ox, which is a sacred animal symbol for earth. The Fool is called the Scintillating Intelligence, because it is the first perception of Will of the One who has the potential for activity.

The Fool is an intelligence in the realm of Dark Energy that Qabalists call the Ain (No-Thing), which is the nothingness that produces the potential for thought. Therefore the Thoth Tarot Fool, represents that potential for thought that transcends reason.

The implications for self deception take on a deeper meaning here, as we are talking about a mental state that each of us may have experienced in sleep.  Many of us have experienced the feeling that they have reached some special reality in sleep but upon awakening, we find the symbols absurd. We may even remember a few words, but they seem nonsense when we analyze  them consciously. We easily dismiss any discontent  idea that may disturb or disrupt out waking reality. This is a self deception that may have dangerous consequences.
To a Qabalist, the Fool, represents the beginning of the All as Aleph is the beginning of the Hebrew alphabet. Here is the All as O, before it became She/He as an 8.

On the Thoth illustration,The Fool is ignoring the tiger gnawing on his leg,an oriental symbol for fear, which implies that he is not paying attention to fear or caution.

The winged Orphic egg, is not only the symbol of the "seed of Spirit" but in Crowley's depiction, is also the "I" (eye) of Horus. You can read my past blog on the Fool for further Arcane meanings, but in short. The Thoth Tarot Card implies all the meanings of the Legends Tarot, but goes much deeper into the Arcane meanings of Gnosis, and Qabalistic Magic.

The Thoth Tarot Fool Card is also designed for skrying that will send the skrier on the Path of Aleph, a path of spiritual  awareness that not only transcends all "reason" but that has been explained in detail in past blogs and known as the "Mysteries of Dionysus". As you may realize both Tarot decks have similarities and both are absolutely capable of Divination. 

The pursuit of deeper secrets (Arcana) is a principle of the Thoth Tarot cards and that is often the only difference it has form other decks. The student must find their deck of choice and practice with it, if not daily, as often as possible.This allows a good Divination channel to be opened from body to Divine Collective Unconscious, which then produces a trustworthy accuracy.
Thus, when the Thoth Tarot Card is thrown during a Divination; IT IMPLIES:
  • A conscious state of no fear. Courage. The ability to give forth new ideas and pursue then from a place wonder, courage and anticipation.
  • The querent is able to complete all motion from faith.
  • Being open to what the future may bring, A feeling of protection and in it a sense that everything will work out. Trusting the Inner Spirit.
  • The Spirit in search of experience.
  • Spontaneity, the carefree irrational impulse that is know as the "irresistible surge of propelling energy"
  • Folly, mania, extravagance, delirium, frivolity and negligence, as supported by accompanying cards.
  • Suggests the unenlightened person beginning the journey towards enlightenment.
