The Fool is without doubt my favourite card of the Major Arcana. The picture is of a man who is walking gaily out in the sunshine, enjoying the day. You can almost feel him breathing in the new day. He has a small rucksat and a dog for company. He is footloose and fancy free and is unaware of the next step he makes in his absolute joy of being present in the here and now.
This card is the zero of the Trump cards. The zero is representing completeness, wholeness. It is the rebirthing of the deck. The zero contains all possibilities and is undefinable, limitless. It contains all and nothing.
Here The Fool is not caring about material possessions. In fact he would like to acquire less than more because the heavier his rucksack is the heavier his journey would be. He doesn’t care what others think of him in his un-matching attire. He is free from all judgements and does what he wants, when he wants and he hurts no one as he has a pure heart. He is a lover of animals and nature. Animals can sense his joy and in the picture a dog has made friends with The Fool. No one can hurt The Fool as his heart is so pure. The Fool if ever in his joy of living, he might trip and tumble as he is so enraptured in the moment he does not look ahead. Therefore he can be his own worst enemy at times.
If you choose The Fool in your reading, it is a sign to let go and enjoy life. Dance on tables and smell the roses. Take chances to be a fool in life, a fool in love. Relinquish all control and let go. Throw away all the striving to be and have and be one with nature. If you trip and fall it is nothing compared to the experience of living life!Leslie Anne Franklin is a unique tarot reader that shares her wisdom and helps thousands of people through her accurate readings and insights.
