In the medieval world the fool was not always viewed as a simpleton. As the court jester, he was seen as possessing a naïve wisdom that made him wiser at times than those around him. In addition, he was allowed to break the rules of court etiquette. He was outside the system, laughed at but in a strange way privileged. The fool, like Socrates, was wise enough to know that he knew nothing. His mind was not overloaded with preconceptions and definitions. He saw things as they were. In the Tarot, The Fool is that part of ourselves that is wise enough to stand awestruck before the mystery of creation, and bold enough to set off exploring. The Fool is the only card in the major arcana that is unnumbered, and he has no set position in the order of the cards. He symbolizes the part of us that looks out upon the thoughts, feelings and dreams playing across the shadow theatre of the mind. Carrying the minimum of possessions and the pilgrim's staff, egged on by a strange animal (sometimes a cat or dog) symbolizing the inner motivation that snaps at our heels once we start to question the nature of reality, The Fool steps towards the unknown – the inner self.

Divinatory Meaning: Unplanned incident or endeavour; unexpected new beginning of some kind. Can turn out well if flanked by fortunate cards, otherwise can indicate an unwise move.

Reversed: impetuous foolishness.
