I really like the correspondence to the constellation of Orion, and how the "stars" in the painting, and the shaman/fool's posture in the card, depict that correlation. It really drives home the separateness of the Fool from the rest of the deck, and of Orion from the astrological zodiac. And I like that the little white dog is appropriately included, as the dog star Sirius. :c) No one should ever go alone into the abyss.

In Julie's book she says the Fool is the one you go to when there is no hope left. I like this statement, because you really do need to be in a certain place before you contemplate the void, whether it be a change of attitude, or a total change of life. At some poiint, you must trust the Fool, and act.
