The Fool, often misunderstood. Thankfully, The Fool doesn’t give a damn about opinion. He has one foot on a familiar branch and the other taking a step into the Great Unknown. The Fool is not concerned with what is to come or what has been. He lives in the moment and trusts completely. The Fool card is numbered as zero, ever present within the tarot. He has no specific order within the tarot and shows himself as unlimited potential in any direction. He is led by spirit that brought him here. The Fool has come into being to explore and learn without knowing what may come his way, but with full allowance of all that guides him.
The invitation here is that of trust. Trust what brought us here through all experiences that arise. The Fool is The Wild Unknown. He is innocent and open in each experience. He reminds us to give up our ideas, beliefs, and concepts of what should be, to allow life to be as it is without attaching false stories to what is. The Fool may be innocent in his appearance, but this does not mean he is not wise. He invites us to relax in our present moment freshness that is not tainted by past hurt. The Fool sees each experience as an new opportunity to live and love the sacredness of life in all forms that come. He invites us in unknown realms because he knows all is grace, even when the grace is fierce and painful. His attitude is Yes, allow me to see where I hold any limitation or fear within myself so I may walk in this life free and unhindered by self imposed limitations. He reminds us to not think we know everything and to revel and embrace uncharted territory within and without. If we think we know anything absolutely he reminds us that we block off discovering present moment beauty in the most simple way.
The Fool asks how do we hinder our own childlike innocence and exploration? Are we doubting ourselves and life as we move, or are we thankful for the miracle present now? As we relax into trusting life we open new doors of infinite possibility. We are not getting caught up in the mundane, but to the magic of life that is constantly inviting us to see in every moment. The Fool is one with the entirety of what is, therefore he does not doubt his experience of being. He invites us to take leaps of faith where there may be fear and to know as all is One we cannot go wrong when we trust in our heart and journey. Each unique embodiment of spirit has the opportunity to express itself fully in this life. The Fool asks if we can walk into our own heart and trust throughout all opposition that may come.
