The Fool

Decided to extract a card after a long time again. Had a tarot read coming up after a self-imposed sabbatical, and I wanted to see where this would take me. Promptly The Fool arrived. And I smiled.

The Fool holds the number of unlimited potential: ‘O’. It is either placed in the beginning of the Major Arcana sequence or at the end, the Fool’s influence, due to this reason, is omnipresent through the journey of the characters in the arcana. He represents the beginning of creativity, of inspiration and all that is innocent. He may represent a choice or an opportunity. He validates risk-taking, and is a manifestation of courage and creative expression. He sees what usually the heart shields from intelligence. He can also be an indication of naivete, and excessive trust – which at times can be good or bad – so the card also comes with a warning to be cautious.
