The deeper meaning of the Tarot Fool

The Tarot Fool can be seen as Card 0 as well as Card 22 and can be compared to hexagram 24 of the I-Tjing: the Renewal. This "renewal" comes about, through the return of the light into the inner being of the human being. The Fool is not on his way to something, but is actually heading back to his own origins. That is why this card is located both at the beginning as at the end of the Tarot game. Although the name "the Fool" might imply that he's a dummy, he is neither lost nor mad. He is determined and follows his path safely. He knows where he is going, namely, to himself. In his duffel bag, he carries "the World", the twenty-first Tarot card. In reality, his "foolishness" is divine wisdom, which, unfortunately, is often perceived as pure madness in this world. We can also see that a dog is chasing him. It seems that he tries to hold the tarot Fool back by clinging to him. Originally this was not a dog, but the jackal Anubis, which was the Egyptian God of the dead. But not even death can stop the Fool, as he's now "Master of the mysteries of life and death".

General meanings of the Tarot Fool

In general, the Tarot Fool stands for return, evolution, departure, Involution, regression and leave. He is a person who has fallen prey to an unstoppable inner impulse. He represents a sudden reversal of a situation, a departure, a journey, a transitional situation, a passage or an ultimate goal to reach. He leaves, returns, evolves and advances. The northern and southern nodes of the Moon, are the astrological similarities. Together, they form the axis of involution and evolution. If the Fool is laid out as card 22, he depicts a sudden start, an irrepressible urge, a journey, an enthusiastic initiative, an escape or a transitional moment or period. If he is seen as card O, it concerns a regression, a return, a necessary involution before making a great leap forward. He therefore announces, that you are going forward or that you are looking back at yourself.

Positive and negative interpretations:

Positive meanings: Initiating passion, change, travel, departure, someone will visit you, return, goal, arrival, going to someone or somewhere, enlightenment, performance, evolution, progress, opportunity to grab.
Negative meanings:
Irresponsibility, involuntariness, wandering, error, extravagance, regression, flight, searching without result or sense, madness.

The Tarot Fool in each of us

The Fool is the predecessor of the Joker. We lay the Joker on the table, when the situation is difficult or desperate. The Joker gives the game an unexpected twist and helps us to be more lucky. In the Tarot game, the Fool can be placed anywhere also. The Fool is free because he has liberated himself. He comes and goes, according to his desires and according to the possibilities that life offers him. He only travels with the most necessary luggage. The allegorical meaning shows us the lightness of life if we free ourselves from our ego and our limitations. We've left unnecessary mental and emotional baggage behind. Because his soul is free, he can handle everything. He is a unique person who behaves naturally and unexpectedly, sometimes surprising and sometimes shockingly. In this card, we find the greatest freedom, the greatest evolution, but also possible chaos and madness. The dog means, that it is important to accept the animal in ourselves and to be aware of it. On the path of consciousness, we must first become aware of the animal, in order to be able to transform it.
