The Fool Tarot Card Meanings


 

Introduction:

The Fool Tarot Meanings

The Fool is always an indicator of newness in one form or another. In many ways it indicates the purity, the open-hearted energy, and the innocence of a child. Children are trusting and trust forms the basis of meaning for this card.

This is generally considered a positive card but there is a caveat. The caveat being that it is important to take time to be sure that you are looking where you're going. Trusting yourself to take a step into the unknown is one thing, but doing so without any thought whatsoever may be a mistake.

 

General:

In general, this card would indicate new beginnings that have some deeper spiritual meaning. Spiritual in the sense that is meaningful in terms of your inner self.

Being religious and being spiritual are not the same thing. It does not mean religious here; you can be spiritual without being in the least bit religious. For example, starting a new relationship would be considered meaningful and hence spiritual. Buying a new pair of shoes would not!

The appearance of the Fool can depict an important fresh start in almost any aspect of your life. Life is cyclical and you will experience fresh starts many times as you grow spiritually. The Fool means another new journey is about to begin.

 
 
 

Work:

Other people may not understand or support your new ideas and/or proposals, but if you know that you're right, press ahead, and try to help them to understand where you are coming from. Do make sure that you are right though and that you are being stubborn for all the right reasons.

The Fool can sometimes indicate finding a new position. This could be within your existing job and might even mean a promotion. If, however, you are not satisfied with your current lot it can mean that now is the time to look for a new job that suits you better.

It can also mean that the time could be right for you to go off on your own and start your own business. That's a scary prospect for most people but if it's something that you've been idly considering then the Fool means you should be giving it serious consideration.

 

Love:

The meaning of The Fool in the context of love could indicate that you aren't ready for a commitment. At least not yet. Even though others may be pressing you for one now is not the time.

There is nothing wrong with having fun and indeed this card is a positive harbinger for your love life; lots of fun seems to be in the offing and this is what you want right now in an existing relationship.

If, on the other hand, you are looking for a new relationship and hopefully love then make sure you don't let your desire for fun let you overlook the real thing should it come your way now. When you're wrapped up in having fun it can be easy to overlook the possibilities in a new relationship. True love is not always instant so you need to make sure you're aware that it could be creeping up on you!

 
 
 

Finances:

In terms of finances, the Fool is an extremely positive significator. It doesn't meant that you will win the lottery I'm afraid (it's not impossible of course, but not very likely!) but it does mean that one way or another you will see an increase in money.

Whether it's an inheritance, a new job with better money, a promotion, or even just a pay rise you can expect a windfall of some sort. That doesn't mean you should just sit back and take the day off while you wait! Trust yourself, work hard, and you will do better than you expect.

Perhaps more importantly the Fool lets you know that no matter what happens financially, you will be all right in the long run. You will come out on top.

 

Health:

It's possible that you'll be slightly accident prone when the Fool is appearing; be present in the moment and don't take silly chances. It's amazing how many pitfalls can be avoided with a little common sense so don't get carried away and take avoidable risks.

Overall, though, when this card appears your health is very likely to be on the upswing. If you're having health problems, you are very likely to find the people and items you need to make headway toward a full recovery. Mind over matter can be very helpful; positive thought is important and should come fairly easily to you now.

 

Spirituality:

When this card appears, you are likely to be in or nearing a period of experimentation. You may well have a desire to try out lots of different approaches to spirituality to see how they fit for you personally.

There is nothing wrong with this exploration of possibilities, just make sure you don't get too carried away in any one thing while you are "just shopping." There are many possibilities out there and you will find the one that is right for you.

If you are not yet exploring spiritual possibilities then this card can indicate a powerful need to gain a deeper knowledge of spirituality. Your friends and family may not understand where this is coming from. Regardless of their attitude you have to do what is best for you.
