Fool

Interpretation

The FoolThe Fool represents that point before the beginning, that point of pure potential. It hasn’t been constrained yet, which makes it appear foolish to those who are jaded.

You are being asked to trust your gut. You might feel the impulse to leave something or move toward something else. You might not be able to express why or what it is. It’s a feeling, something that might make you wonder if you’re sane. You are hearing the voice of the spirit. Spirit doesn’t make the logical choice. But it can lead you to the miraculous. Take a chance. Follow your instincts. You have a grand adventure ahead of you.

The Major Arcana

The twenty-two cards of the Major Arcana tend to hold the big lessons. These cards carry powerful messages. If you are reading a spread of cards, watch for the Major Arcana. If your spread contains more than 30% Major Arcana, you are in the midst of something big, or beyond your control. If most of the cards in the spread are from the Major Arcana, you might be trying to exert too much control. You might have trouble expressing your feelings, or you might be near your breaking point. A spread without any Major Arcana cards could indicate you are hiding from the truth of the issue, or are in some deep distress. If this is the case, it is important to find someone you can trust to guide you through this period of time. In a spread, focus most of your attention on the Major Arcana. The other cards will be useful for clarifying the situation.
