Number 0, The Fool
The Fool depicts a cheerful young Pixie, skipping joyfully as they follow a butterfly. They are excited and care-free, not worrying where the road may take them. It appears that the edge of the cliff is near, will their small wings be enough to hold them up? We're not sure if the Fool knows about the edge of the cliff, or if they are simply just naïve. Regardless, it does not seem to concern them.
The Fool card is number 0 in the tarot, which is a number that represents infinite potential. The Fool is a new start, they have yet to develop a personality. They are the symbol of innocence and will be shaped by the experiences they have on their journey.
The Fool has no worries and is only filled with optimism. They are free to explore the world and who they have yet to become. The Fool inspires adventure, risk-taking and courage to make changes. They understand that every day gives us a new chance to explore different areas in our lives. This card reminds us that we can never really be absolutely certain of what lies ahead, but we can welcome it with open arms.

Card in Reverse:
When in reverse, the Fool card can suggest that you may indeed be acting like a literal fool. You may be disregarding the dangers that lie ahead and what consequences they may bring. It is nice to live care-free, but it is not wise to be careless.
While it is good to live life in the moment, the Fool in reverse may suggest that you are living a bit too much in the moment. So much so that you are not planning for the future or setting goals. Consider this card to be your wake up call.

Upright: The Fool in love is a welcomed card, for they bring along with them a sense of new adventure. If you are looking for love, this card can mean you're about to take advantage of a new opportunity to find love. If you are partnered, it may mean that you and your special someone are going to embark on a new journey together.
If looking for love, the Fool tells us to have faith and be confident that things will work out. Don't worry about the possibilities of rejection or embarrassment, for they could very well lead you to the relationship you've been waiting for. The Fool says to keep trying and never give up.
Reversed: Sometimes when we are a little too bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, we lose our sense of caution. When entering a new relationship, make sure that they are being genuine. Double check to see if you are looking through rose coloured glasses.
The Fool card can also suggest that perhaps you or your love interest may be a bit too immature right now to handle a serious relationship. This doesn't have to be a bad thing, relationships can be complicated.
Upright: New beginning are on their way! The Fool suggests that perhaps soon you will be getting that new position at work, the raise you've been wanting, or maybe you'll start a whole new job or business.
Alternatively, sometimes there doesn't need to be a drastic new change for something exciting to happen. Perhaps some new ideas will present themselves to you, or you will be overcome with new energy. Old projects have new life in them. New opportunities don't seem as scary or unrealistic to accept now.
Reversed: You may be feeling very energized at this time, though you may not know how to implement it into your work. Be aware of your actions and how they may affect your career and colleagues. Don't rush into anything you're not totally sure of.
Alternatively, the Fool card can suggest that things are very boring at work. Your job feels stale and you're desperately wanting a change. However, before making this change, make sure you do your research. Plan things out carefully before making any big changes.
