The Fool

The Fool card is the first card in the tarot, numbered Zero. It represents the onset of the Fool's journey and refers to new beginnings, fresh starts, a period of awakening and unlimited potential.

You may be embarking on a whole new chapter in your life; putting the past behind you and starting anew. And you may be answering to a call that only you can hear.

This is the "leap of faith" card, reminding you to have faith in the Universe as well as in yourself.

The Fool card invites you to consider the possibilities, no matter how impractical or far fetched they may be. There may be uncertainty. And you may at times feel like a "fool." But It's all about leaping into the unknown and knowing that there are unlimited opportunities awaiting you on the other side.

But this is also a card of transformation and change. It's a reminder of the importance of embracing each new chapter with the idealism and wonder of a child — no matter where you are in your own life's journey.

The Fool card encourages you to draw on the wisdom you've gained through your life experiences as you embark on each new chapter. You're given the opportunity to embrace new experiences with the youthful spirit of a child, without losing sight of what you've already learned.

You want to think about these concepts, especially as they apply to opportunities that present themselves to you today. It's not the time to fret about details or focus on what could possibly go wrong.

You do want to keep your wits about you, and unlike the figure in this card you do want to watch your step.

But immersing yourself fully in the journey — rather than thinking too hard or focusing too much on the destination — can open up a whole new world of possibilities for you that you won't want to miss.
