Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 13: All tarot cards are neutral; they merely present universal archetypal images that are part of the human experience. The ‘goodness’ or ‘badness’ of a card depends entirely on what we choose to do with the energy represented. Yin is balanced by yang; every positive in life has its shadow side, and vice versa. A knife in the hands of a surgeon can save a life, but the same knife wielded by a terrorist can wreak havoc. A Zen Buddhist proverb illustrates this idea: A farmers horse ran off, prompting the neighbors to lament, ‘Thats bad.’ The next day the horse returned along with three wild horses, and the neighbors declared, ‘Thats good.’ When the farmers son broke his leg trying to tame the wild horses, the neighbors commented, ‘Thats bad.’ The next day, the army came to draft the farmers son for an impending battle but because of his broken leg, they didnt draft him. It so happened that all the soldiers who fought in the battle died, but the son survived because of his fractured limb. This time the neighbors kept silent. They had learned the futility of judging situations in terms of black and white, good and bad.
