William Blake TarotNaked and innocent, the human soul, an unadorned spiritual essence at the literal dawn of its journey, is about to plunge into terrestrial (worldly and material) consciousness but hesitates on the Rock of Ages. The dog (instinct) fearlessly shows the way, leaping into the "sea of time and space" to face the fertile crocodile of life. In the Blakean interpretation, this is Tharmas, the Zoa of Matter, "the parent power." This card clearly shows the synchronicity of ideas between Blake's ideas and imagery, and the traditional Tarot.
