The Fool - Card 0

Nov 24, 2022

Being spontaneous
Having faith
Embracing folly

As Card 0, the Fool lies at the beginning of the major arcana, but also somewhat apart from the other cards. In medieval courts, the court jester was someone who was not expected to follow the same rules as others. He could observe and then poke fun. This makes the Fool unpredictable and full of surprises. He reminds us of the unlimited potential and spontaneity inherent in every moment. There is a sense with this card that anything goes - nothing is certain or regular. The Fool adds the new and unfamiliar to a situation.

The Fool also represents the complete faith that life is good and worthy of trust. Some might call the Fool too innocent, but his innocence sustains him and brings him joy. In readings, the Fool can signal a new beginning or change of direction - one that will guide you onto a path of adventure, wonder and personal growth. He also reminds you to keep your faith and trust your natural responses. If you are facing a decision or moment of doubt, the Fool tells you to believe in yourself and follow your heart no matter how crazy or foolish your impulses may seem.

The Fool is usually is positioned at the beginning of the Major Arcana and depicts our learning experience through life from beginning to end.

Often, our learning experiences and adventures are fraught with mistakes and mishaps. It is part of our lessons to overcome these obstacles in order to evolve.

The number 0 symbolizes ‘Eternity’. It represents wholeness, oneness and continuing cycles. 0 is Alpha (beginning) and Omega (the Highest), as there is no beginning and no end. All is infinite. In reference to the Fool, 0 is considered to represent the beginning of a spiritual journey and highlights uncertainties.

The Fool is sometimes seen as a ‘dreamer’. The Fool card often depicts a person who may be naïve, and who is just beginning ‘Life’s Journey’.

On the highest level, The Fool can be in touch with the highest energies. On the lower level, The Fool often chooses to have a great deal of moral blindness. The Fool has a tendency to live in the world of matter (materialism), often leaving the spiritual essence behind.

The Fool stands for each of us as we embark on a new stage in our lives. He has the desire to achieve goals, but must be careful to make the right choices.

With the Fool’s influence, you are being given the abilities and tools to be able to break free from old ties and habits. The Fool’s influence allows you to be a non-conformist or an ‘individual’. The Fool depicts a sudden awakening or epiphany, and freedom in truth.


The Fool signifies one's potential and abilities. Embarking on his journey toward self-knowledge, the Fool is at the same time adventurous and fearful, seemingly open to all possibilities, yet apparently unaware of the dangers that appear in front of him along the way.

The Fool indicates that a new phase of life is about to begin. In a reading, The Fool asks that you abandon the old to enable you to begin something new.

The Fool tells that sometimes it is necessary to take risks in order to force change. Use discernment though, as sometimes it is wiser to stay put.

The Fool indicates a time of new projects and enthusiastic ideas, happiness, laughter and spontaneity. It tells you to trust in life.
