The meaning of each tarot card - The Fool

I’ve been meaning to write a basic guide to tarot card meanings but haven’t found the time. However, today is the day and there couldn’t be a more relevant card to get started with than the fool card - the beginning of the tarot deck and the symbol of new beginnings. I’m always really cheered and intrigued in equal measure when I see this card come up in a reading as I know that whatever the querant has been through of late, change is on its way. 

Life is full of twists and turns; a fact we can’t do anything about. And while sadly some change is negative and brings hardship with it, there are other times when it’s just what you need. Many of us are nervous about change, associating it with the times when we’ve been hurt or damaged. There is also the element of the unknown or having to let go of what is not working for you (despite your best efforts). 

The Fool card tells you to embrace this new path with the pure joy and excitement of a child. Not easy, I know! But life is about to bring better opportunities and the chance to start afresh. Hold your head up high, put the spring back in your step and don’t fight against the tide. Very soon, you’ll have a smile back on your face. 

(For beginners or just for an easy to understand tarot pack, you can't beat the traditional Rider Waite Tarot Deck)
