Almost all conventional wisdom seems to agree that the white sun behind the Fool symbolizes Kether; however, I'd like to suggest an alternative. The key is in Waite's statement, "The sun, which shines behind him, knows whence he came, whither he is going, and how he will return by another path after many days"; this refers to the Christ-Spirit, which is with the Fool, though he has yet to realize it. Jesus said in John 8:14, "Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go. . . ." In his The Way of Divine Union, Waite says of the historical Jesus, "He knew whence He came and why; He knew that it was for the working of a mystery; He knew that this mystery was an epitome of the experience of each individual soul on the way of return Godward."—pp. 185, 186.
Another clue is in Waite's description of Temperance; he says, "Under that rule we know in our rational part something of whence we came and whither we are going." Here the Christ begins to be realized and the soul now understands the path and the goal.
Kether represent God the Father, or God in transcendence; the sun in the Fool represents God immanent (within), i.e. Christ. This brings the Fool more in harmony with the overall message of Waite's majors, which is the realization of Christ within the soul and "the way of return Godward."

wildrosespeonies: Wow. I just discovered a tarot maker on kickstarter who blantantly stole another tarot maker's art. (The art is the art back of Sinking Wasteland.) I have let SW creator know. But wow! Can't believe that.

wildrosespeonies: The artist contacted the KS tarot card maker and they replaced the image, but I'm pretty sure the new image is stolen too. It looks familiar, but I don't recognize where the image come from.

auroralara: forum.tarotsphere.net The “force” behind tarot reading is always down to the reader. The “reader” being the mechanism by which tarot is interpreted is inevitably a human being or more. Humans being the creators of symbols and symbolism such as that

TeaAndTarot: Where would be the best place to start a deck study thread? The Wooden Tarot is on its way and I’d like to post my thoughts here for posterity.

wildrosespeonies: TeaAndTarot. Probably the Tarot Deck Discussion would be the best place, as you are just studying one specific deck. But make sure to check the whole thread as there might already be a Wooden Tarot thread already.
