Following on from yesterday's Knave of Chalices, today we meet the Fey version. This somewhat androgynous creature looks like a Hindu angel, in his orange robes and with the bindi on his forehead. In his hands he holds a large, rough clay bowl with a big goldfish peeking out of the waters at him. He also has three flames rising from the top of his pony-tailed, pointy-eared head, with another gracing his golden armband.
I remember Rachel Pollack saying (in 78 Degrees of Wisdom) that the Page of Cups' fish represents the soul. Seeking enlightenment, then, our Knave tries to externalise his soul so that he can contemplate its many mysteries. A pretty perfect description of one way to use the tarot!
That being so, I decided to create a very brief spread based on this card, with just two positions.
1) What should I know of my soul in this moment?
2) What enlightenment can I gain from this knowledge?
If you'd like to see my answers, check back this afternoon...
I am grateful for the wealth of amazing tarot decks in the world.
