Take a look at the Royal Institution’s video, The Story of Zero narrated by Hannah Fry. Though it makes no mention of Tarot’s Fool (whose number is zero) it’s a fascinating look at why ‘nothing’ grew into something really special.

Dreams of an Astronaut

#21 - The Universe - Thoth Tarot

Have you ever wondered what astronauts might dream about? Here’s a wonderful little video brought to us by The Royal Institution and animated by Andrew Khosravani entitled The Dreams of an Astronaut with Helen Sharman.

Back in 1991, Helen Sharman became the first Briton to go to space, and in the video she talks about what that was like, as well as describing a recurring dream she has about her voyage.

While watching, I couldn’t help but think of the Thoth Tarot’s #21, the Universe card. Floating in space must be quite a trip, and as one of the meanings of this card suggests, it certainly takes us to life’s next level.
