The Fool tarot card – 0 – trust yourself and go

THE FOOL TAROT CARD DESCRIPTION: illustration, colors, and symbolism.

  • The Fool tarot card shows an innocent young man.  He is walking joyfully,  gazing upwards toward the sky, and is unaware that he is about to fall over the cliff into the unknown.  A young man stands on the edge of a cliff, without a care in the world, as he sets out on a new adventure. Over his shoulder rests a modest knapsack. This knapsack contains everything he needs. He carries a bundle, containing all his worldly possessions. He has the white rose in his left hand. The rose represents his purity, freedom, and innocence. Also,  at his feet is a small white dog, representing loyalty and protection. This dog actually encourages him to go forward and learn the lessons he came to learn. The explosive decal on his clothing represents potentiality. The mountains behind the Fool symbolize the challenges yet to come. Changes are forever present.  But, the young man doesn’t care about them. He is more focused on starting his expedition.
  • Numerology: The Fool tarot card is the first card in the major arcana, and is numbered zero (0), which stands for the number of unlimited potentials. The Major Arcana is often considered the Fool’s journey through life. As such, he is ever-present and therefore needs no number. Zero is the beginning. It is purity and innocence. It is defined by absence.
  • Wikipedia: The Fool is one of the 78 cards in a tarot deck. In tarot card reading, it is one of the 22 Major Arcana, sometimes numbered as 0 (the first) or XXII (the last), or unnumbered, as it is not one of the 21 trump cards and instead serves a unique purpose by itself.
