The Fool

As this is pretty much a companion to my learnings and discoveries, I think it’s appropriate to discuss the Tarot here! 🙂 I will be going through each tarot card of the Rider-Waite deck.

The Fool

The Fool is the first card of the Major Arcana, the Major Arcana cards being the journey the Fool takes. The Fool is innocent and carefree, able to take on any of the world’s challenges and able to begin anything. The Fool feels he can do what he wants, and has no sense of danger because of his, “nothing bad can happen to me” mentality. While this can be a good state of mind when starting a serious journey, it can also lead to irresponsibility, especially when there’s a risky situation.
Ultimately, however, the Fool encourages us to get in touch with dreams and ideas that we’ve hidden away deep within ourselves and start the journey to realizing them.
When the Fool shows up, it’s certain that you are beginning a new journey, however it may end, you are sure to never be the same again.
