Fool Tarot card meaning

Select random card

Keep the faith and trust your instincts

As card number zero in the pack the Fool represents all that is new, fresh and innovative. In medieval times the court jester was someone who was not expected to follow the same rules and conventions as everyone else and so was free to be spontaneous and creative. He was laughed at for being simple and naive but in reality it is he who gets the last laugh because these are the qualities that sustain him and bring him happiness.

The card reminds us of the power in adopting a child-like simplicity and warns against being cynical. There are many people who have achieved great things simply because they didn't listen to anyone telling them it wasn't possible. However, the card can also warn us of impetuousness and childishness. Stepping out into the unknown may bring you adventures and exciting new possibilities, but it may also get you into trouble and result in you turning back with your tail between your legs!
