POSITION 1 – PAST
This position represents the past where the situation originated.
THE FOOL – In tarot the Fool has no number (0) and therefore represents the potential for new action/situations.
If the Fool turns up in your spread it may be that you are getting ready to take the plunge into something new in your life, the results of which you can’t predict accurately. Upright the Fool advises you to “feel the fear and do it anyway”, follow your intuition and head right over that cliff into the unknown – something wonderful could be there.
POSITION 2 – PRESENT
The present situation.
THE HANGED MAN – Sometimes when we don’t have a clue what to do for the best we simply do nothing. You may feel full of self pity, restricted by life’s limitations, real or imagined; feel that your life is going nowhere or that your options are limited.
Perhaps you feel that you have sacrificed your hopes and dreams or cannot choose which path to take. Duty or other commitments may prevent you from pursuing dreams, or you may feel like your life has been suspended in some way. Perhaps you feel as if you are waiting for things which may be out of your control to change so that your life may move along once again.
