This Jungian Life #25: Tarot, I Ching & Methods of Divination?

This Jungian Life?
"Divinatory systems have been used for thousands of years as a source of help and direction to people wishing to resolve situations of personal uncertainty.
Jung used the I Ching for 30 years before he met Richard Wilhelm and found confirmation of its usefulness in Wilhelm’s translation of The Secret of the Golden Flower.
We explore the value of divination through the I Ching and the Tarot, and link this to the concept of a unified field that can facilitate a healing relationship with the Self."
Episode 25 - The Psychology of Divination: a depth approach
From 'Jung and Tarot: An Archetypal Journey'
We're not in Kansas anymore?
Hmm ... 18 hay Wayne?-)
A 'Deadman's Hand' misdeal?-)
"Touch" the Deadman's Hand Coincidence
In the chapter 'The Fool and the Tarot in Us', Sallie Nichols writes, "The Fool is a wanderer, energetic, ubiquitous, and immortal. He is the most powerful of all the Tarot Trumps. Since he has no fixed number he is free to travel at will, often upsetting the established order with his pranks.
As we have seen, his vigor has propelled him across the centuries where he survives in our modern playing cards as the Joker. Here he still enjoys confounding the Establishment. In poker he goes wild, capturing the king and all his court. In other card games he pops up unexpectedly, deliberately creating what we choose to call a misdeal."

"The Joker connects two worlds - the everyday, contemporary world where most of us live most of the time and the nonverbal land of imagination inhabited by Tarot characters, which visit occasionally."
This guy sets out with zero intelligence;-)
Such a source of infinite wisdom, don't you think?-) 
But who is the real fool when it comes to the Oz story?
Just sayin';-)
"Our inner Fool urges us on to life, where the thinking mind might be overcautious. What seems like a precipice from afar may prove to be only a small gully when approached with the Fool's gusto. His energy sweeps everything before him, carrying others along like leaves in a fresh wind.
Without the Fool's energy all of us would be mere pasteboard."
"antics of the pasteboards"?
