The Fool

The Fool

Meaning

When The Fool arrives in your reading then know that you are on the precipice of a new beginning or new experience. In this experience you will throw back all that has been holding you back thus far. This could be fear, worry, or doubt. The Fool says, go out on your journey, that's what life is about. Whatever your new beginning is, The Fool wants you to embrace it in the same way a child embraces their first day of school.

Symbolism

The Fool is the very first card in the Tarot, and symbolizes a man just beginning his journey or beginning a new cycle of life. It is a bright and optimistic card, symbolizing the same kind of energy you feel when you are on the first day of a vacation or holiday. This is the energy to embrace right now, this child like, fresh faced optimism. You are definitely venturing out into the unknown, and this time, that's a good thing! Throw caution to the wind and embrace the new world ahead of you. This is your now!
