The Fool is one of my favorite cards in this Tarot deck because of his joyful and fun-loving attitude. The Fool is the zero card; the very moment before creation which indicates unexplored potential. Zero also represents the endless circle and cycle of life; that without beginning or end. Alpha and Omega.
The Fool represents unexpected opportunities that will suddenly appear and that bring welcome changes. It tells us to remain open as we will need to make a major choice seemingly out of the blue. However, one negative aspect of the Fool is the implication that we are afraid of making choices out of fear of making the “wrong” choice.
When drawn, the Fool is a reminder to listen to the voice of our inner child that recalls the excitement of new adventures and stepping into unknown territory. It asks us to take a leap of faith, to travel along unknown paths, to let go of worries and self doubt, and to grow as a result of the experience.
If you are confused about making a decision, the Fool tells you that it’s time to believe in yourself and trust your heart. Sometimes resistance is more foolish than risk.
The Fool represents new beginnings and childlike enthusiasm for life. The Fool signifies the unpredictable; that life is full of surprises and anything goes.
