The Fool card

Written by Mary

The Fool is a very odd card in the Tarot of Marseille – it is the only one without a number. This Major Arcanum is also called ‘The Jester'. Its picture shows a pilgrim, a man who has left on a quest for something. A dog can be seen next to him, which is symbolic of the animal side present in all human beings. It is a card that carries many meanings, and aside from madness and worry, it also symbolises voluntary renewal – the gentle kind, nothing forced.

The Fool therefore symbolises the beginning of a journey; it is a sign of change in a person's life.

Drawn upright:



Drawn upright, the Fool's card has a positive meaning; it signifies that the person is on the way to better things. There will be constructive changes in their life: romantic relationships, encounters, relocation, change of job, promotion, etc. The Fool is a sign of vigour. Moreover, the image shows us clearly that the pilgrim is in motion; he carries a bundle and a stick. The Fool is therefore a symbol of motion.

Its meanings: luck, travel, originality, change, creation, plans, success...

Drawn upside-down:


The Fool's card drawn upside-down, however, is not a good omen. It needs to be interpreted as a renunciation. The person won't dare to pursue a journey, or a relationship, because they are scared of change, and may pass up the chance of their life. If the Fool's card is drawn upside-down, we can conclude that the person is in a situation which they won't bother changing, either out of fear, or because they don't want to leave the comfort of their current life. Upside-down, the Fool's card symbolises mistakes and the fear of change. They're heading the wrong way.

Its meanings: mistake, madness, bad judgement, violence, chaos, defeat...

Summary:


This card is a sign of transformation, a period of transition. It expresses both material and emotional doubt. It is also the card of travel, moving, and relocation.

Susan, 4xScorpio here, 4x means I have 4 planets in scorpio. I'm 62 years old and my wife of 17 years left me 2 days ago and I'm having a very difficult time. How can I get help from you
Thanks for your comment ! Jupiter left Scorpio and no longer illuminates your life with insolent luck. You may need to meditate on what happened, so that you do not make the same mistakes again. You need to get more fulfilling relationships. Have a nice day !
