No kidding, we've got the true meaning of The Fool Tarot Card.

Every great story starts somewhere. In the tarot, that start is The Fool card. In the beginning, you don’t know what you don’t know. There’s no shame in admitting that. But it’s finally being aware that you don’t know—or haven’t experienced what you want to experience yet—that makes you take the first step on your journey.

This card is all about the optimistic vibes we sometimes have when we’re trying to learn (or become) something new. Any worries about possible struggles ahead are background noise in the excitement in getting started. When the Fool appears in a tarot reading, get ready—your adventure is about to begin.


What is the Meaning of The Fool Card in a Love Reading?

This is a fun card to pull when you are doing a love reading! A new romance is around the corner, but there may be something a little quirky or out of the ordinary about your new bae. This person might not be the usual kind of lover you go for, but the chemistry between the two of you is undeniable. Keep an open mind and see where this relationship takes you. You’ll be having a lot of fun, new experiences and maybe even learning something fun about yourself too.

If the Fool came up in a position representing you, it could be the Universe’s way of telling you to be more spontaneous and less rigid in your search for love. Yes, a new love is on its way to you, but if you’ve got your focus too narrow, you might be missing out on someone who is a wonderful fit for you. If you’ve got a good feeling about someone but have been a little shy about making the first move, this card is a sign to just go for it.

When the Fool comes up reversed, it could be a warning that you’ve been overlooking some red flags about a lover. Or you may be on the verge of making a big mistake by assuming something about them. This situation absolutely calls for taking a close look at the surrounding cards to see what you might be overlooking. You don’t want to get blindsided by a situation that could easily be avoided.



What is the Meaning of The Fool Card in a Future Reading?

Thinking about starting something new in your life? The Fool card is one of the best cards to get. Expect to get an opportunity to try something new very soon. It could be something that you’ve been thinking about for awhile but slightly outside of your comfort zone. While there is a certain amount of risk involved in going towards this new thing, there’s a good chance of reward too. Do not sleep on the opportunities the Universe has brought to your door.

If the Fool came up in a position representing you in a future reading, it’s practically giving you a big “Hell, yeah!” to take on a new adventure. You need to be the one to initiate it though. Once you start setting off on your new path, you’ll see the resources you need start flowing your way. Your actions will help manifest your success, so keep a positive outlook and keep putting one foot in front of the other.

If the Fool comes up reversed in a future reading, someone close to you might be about to act in a way that makes you question their sanity. They could either be moving too fast into something without having all the details, or they could be super in denial about how risky their behavior is. It might be time to have an intervention for both of your sakes. When the Fool comes up reversed in a position representing you, it is a flashing neon sign to take a step back before committing to anything. You don’t have all the information you need to make a good call right now. Stop, make sure you get all your questions answered, then proceed with caution.


What is the Meaning of The Fool Card in a Career Reading?

Work will be anything but the same old same old when the Fool rolls into a career reading. It’s an absolute yes if you were asking about a new job. But it also can be a sign of things getting shaken up at your current job. New projects, new responsibilities, perhaps even a new job title might be coming your way. The changes generally will be for the good, but there will be a learning curve. Don’t worry too much if you’re feeling like an absolute beginner. Roll with the changes and you’ll get the hang of things in no time.

If the Fool comes up in a position representing you in a career reading, you may want to push yourself to branch out to new territory in your career. See what opportunities there are for learning something new or getting certified for a new skill. You also may want to see if your current career path is really serving you. If your heart has been pulling you towards a new job or new career path, then bestie it’s time to make the jump.

When the Fool turns up reversed in a work reading, you need to be on your toes. There’s a chance that people are keeping information and/or resources to themselves which has you operating from a place of (unknowing) ignorance. This is a good time to double check what you’ve been told to make sure you know what’s expected from you. Avoid the temptation to breeze through a project because you think it’s too easy. Something you don’t know about might easily trip you up.
