The Fool Tarot Card Meanings

Often choices are made for us, yet, following the choice that was made for us, we still have to make the next one.

That is our free will.

Everything in life is about choices, and The Fool Tarot Card is particularly so.

Below, we discuss the different meanings of the card.

The Fool Tarot Card Meanings

Is it A fool’s errand? You have either recently made a decision or are about to choose which many people around you do not agree with; they think it is a fool’s errand. This is when you have to trust yourself enough to believe that you are making the right decision and forge ahead, regardless of what everyone else thinks.

You know what you are drawn to and how you want to spend your life. Be brave enough to make the unpopular choice.

If you have not made any decisions yet, or are even considering it. Perhaps it is time for you to consider what the next phase of your life will be.

Ask yourself: are you satisfied with your current environment? Is it giving you that sense of fulfilment that you are looking for?

Have you double-checked? You always have to consider the other cards that the Fool Tarot Card shows up with. Perhaps, you are about to make a decision, which is a fool’s errand, and you are about to make a decision which does not benefit your future? Let us say you pull the card together with the eight swords. That could be a message to reconsider the decision you are about to make.

Ask yourself: Are the people around you giving you sound advice, yet, you choose not to listen?

Are you fulfilling your potential? The card’s message could be that you have a tremendous amount of potential, yet, at the moment, you are not living your full potential, and you focus on “having fun” instead of doing what you can achieve.

So, when The Fool Tarot Card shows up, try to reflect on whether you are doing what you can do to be the best version of yourself.

Ask yourself: Am I squandering my potential?

How to retrieve the cards meaning

You can retrieve the meaning behind The Fool Tarot Card in meditation. All psychic and spiritual development begins and ends with learning how to calm your physical mind, and strengthen your psychic mind.

Calm your mind with meditation. I use Visual Meditation because that creates an understanding of the messages coming toward me. Moreover, the visual meditation is designed to open my spiritual mind, connect me with my spiritual guides and create that sense of calm that I need within. Calming the mind opens the spiritual doors within us.

Journal. After you have completed your meditation, pick a card, and then journal what shows up for you. You can use the questions above, depending on what you are most drawn toward at the moment.

To use tarot cards on yourself demands a tremendous amount of honesty with yourself because we are incredibly good at deceiving we only want to see the positive. We have to be honest about how we are perhaps contributing to the problem too.
