Fool Tarot Card Meaning

The Fool is numbered 0. (The number of unlimited potentials). The card does not have a particular place in the arrangement of the Tarot cards. It can either be put at the start of the Major Arcana or at the end. The Major Arcana is usually seen as the Fool’s journey through life. That’s why it is always available and requires no number.

The Fool Tarot card represents a youth enjoying life in the world. He is walking with joy and exuberance. He doesn’t have anything in his hands save for a small sack as he walks majestically, one step at a time. The young man doesn’t appear to care about anything, not even the danger that lies before him. As a matter of fact, it won’t take long before he meets one of those possible dangers.

It is not a matter of when but if he just stumbles on the cliff, he will come face-to-face with real danger waiting for him. The dog right beside him barks, as if to warn him of the impending danger but the young man doesn’t seem to pay attention to his surroundings. And because of this, he may not see all the adventures that he has been dreaming about. The mountains seen behind the Fool are an indication of challenges that are waiting home. They are visible but the fool doesn’t seem bothered at all.

Fool Upright

The Fool is a card depicting new beginnings, life’s changes and great potential. Similar to the young man, you are set for a journey and standing on the edge of a cliff. You are almost taking a step into the worlds of the unknown. Despite the fact that you don’t exactly understand what the journey is all about, it is an encouragement to commit and follow your instincts irrespective of how crazy this adventurous journey appears to you. It is now time to step out and let the universe lead you where it will.

As you embark on this journey, The Fool serves as a source of encouragement for you to be curious, open-minded and be happy as you journey.

There’s no other better time than Now! Pack up your things and take the leap of faith regardless of whether you feel you are 100 percent ready to go or not. What are you afraid of? Do you really think the only time you can get started is after everything is mapped out? No! Not with the Fool. He starts off his journey with a few essentials on his hands – and he is inviting you to do the same.

You don’t have to wait for anyone to give you the go-ahead or wait until you have everything thought out. Pick whatever you have and get started. If this was a sign you were waiting for, then this is it. Waiting too long might dampen your spirits and make it difficult to achieve your goal.
