Tarot Card By Card – The Fool

by Theresa Reed on February 10, 2013

Join me each week for “Tarot Card by Card” as we go through each card individually with fresh interpretations and a sucka free approach.  Learn to read tarot in a fun, irreverent, modern way.

The Fool

Keywords: new beginning, fresh start, risk, a chance, new cycle, originality, fearlessness, travel, innocence, being green, trickster, acting foolish

Attributes: Uranus, Air

General meaning:  It’s about  to get all new beginnings and fresh start around here.  Are you ready to change your path?  Tired of hanging on to all that old crap?  Put your baggage behind you and take that leap like a true balla.  Situations call for optimism, faith and fearlessness.  Original thinking.  Beware of the biters at your heels but do what you gonna do anyways. Jump in, no parachute required.  Thinking of a world tour?  Do it, dawg.

Reversed:  Why you being a fraidy cat?  Change is inevitable and it’s time to embrace it.  Sure, there is some unknown stuff ahead but why cling to that old familiar crud that you know sucks the life out of you?  Time to gather your courage muscles and make that move.  The old way isn’t hip anymore.  In fact, it’s not doing a thing for you.  That being said, nothing wrong with scoping out the scenario before you dive in.  Looking before you leap could prevent some bullshit later on. Hold back but don’t hold on.  Other wise advice: stop acting the fool.  Grow up.

Affirmation:  “I am ready for the next chapter in my life.”

Theme song:  “Learning To Fly” by Tom Petty

Journaling prompt:  When have you taken a major risk? Write about your experience.


The doors bout to open six feet wide

Are you gonna hold back or will you step inside

It’s time for a change, don’t be old skool

If you hold back now, I pity da Fool

Time to let go

Go wid the flow

You about to get a fresh start, yo.
