The Fool

Impressions & Associations

Beginnings, ignorance, risk, adventure, faith.


Often depicts a young person, animal, or plant- really anything just beginning and waiting to get started. There's often some kind of risk in the background of the imagery, often represented by a fall off a cliff or into the jaws of a deadly animal.







Trust your adventurous self. Start over. Remember your innocence. Mock and play. Be spontaneous. Risk looking foolish. Trust your path. Take a plunge. Leap before you look. Learning to be more open to the new, strange, and even scary is going to a part of the journey I take with this deck.


The Fool is not the beginning, it is not the end, it is not the middle. The space of The Fool is the in between, the moment of passing between portals.
