MYTHIC TAROT:\par
\par
The animal is Zeus, who watches over the Fool as s/he prepares to plunge into th
e unknown.\par
\par
The Hero = Dionysos, the Twice-Born, the child of Zeus and Semele (a mortal woma
n, the princess of Thebes).\par
\par
Hera, Zeus's wife, became furious and sabotaged Zeus by revealing an important s
ecret to Sebele, a way to get Zeus to reveal himself to her in all his Divine Gl
ory. Sebele did this and was instantly consumed by fire. Zeus did, however, mana
ge to rescue Sebele's unborn child, Dionysos. Hermes sewed the fetus up in Zeus'
s thigh, and this was how Dionysos was born.\par

\par
Dionysos was a strange, horned child that Hera hated, and she sent her earth-god
s (the Titans) to tear him limb from limb. But Zeus rescues yet again. He locate
s the child's heart, still beating, and he transformed it into a potion of pomeg
ranate seeds. This magical drink was fed to Persephone (by Hades, not Zeus) and
Persephone became pregnant and thus was Dionysos twice-born, once in the normal
world and once in the underworld. Reborn in the underworld, you might say. \par
\par
Dionysos-Iacchos: Twice-Born god of light and ecstasy. Ordained by Zeus his fath
er to live among mortals and share in their suffering. Stricken with madness by
Hera and forced to wander all over the world chased by wild satyrs, lunatic wome
n and animals. Gives humanity the gift of wine. He brings drunken ecstasy and sp
iritual redemption to those who relinquish their attachment to worldly power and
wealth. Eventually Zeus summoned him to sit at his (Zeus') right hand in Olympu
s.\par
\par
INNER LEVEL:\par
\par
Dionysos the Fool is an inner impulse to leap into the unknown. \par
\par
The cautious, conservative, adult part of us watches in horror as this wild, you
thful, trusting spirit prepares to stroll off the edge of a precipice. \par
\par
Dionysos the Fool's lunacy seems mad only to that part of ourselves that is boun
d to the world of form, facts and logical order. But in a deeper sense, it is no
t madness but rather an impulse toward change that comes upon us out of the blue
, and which has no rational basis, no preplanned program of action. \par
\par
The animal symbology portrays this intuitive, irrational dimension -- a sixth se
nse that only the animal parts of us can sense or perceive. Only our "animal ear
s" are capable of "hearing" the Fool's music.\par
\par
Dionysos the Fool is the son of Zeus and it is Zeus's spirit to which the Fool i
s attuned -- although Dionysos is foced to live on earth with mortals.\par
\par
The challenge, when this impulse strikes us, is to know whether it has come from
Zeus or a darker, more underworld place. \par
\par
An irrational impulse toward change.\par
\par
An irrational urge to open one's horizons into the unknown.\par
\par
The Fool -- the Querent -- stands at the threshold of a journey. \par
\par
These irrational impulses can sometimes be destructive, sometimes creative. Ofte
n they're both at once. Wild Dionysos the Fool can sometimes leap off the cliff'
s edge into painful and damaging situations which may also yield wonderfully cre
ative beginnings.\par
\par
Ignoring the Fool's call can result in a drab, meaningless, banal life. At the e
nd of life the Querent will wonder what she has missed.\par
\par
There is no guarantee if the Querent will compete the Fool's journey safely, if
at all. Yet to fail to begin is to deny Dionysos, which is to deny all inside of
us that is youthful and creative and attuned to that which is greater than ours
elves.\par
\par
\par
DIVINATORY LEVEL:\par
\par

The advent of a new chapter of life.\par


A risk is required. \par
One must be willing to jump into the unknown. \par
You cannot know whether the Querent will achieve perception of the Divine or wil
l merely end up looking like an idiot.\par
