The Fool is the first card of the twenty-one cards of the Greater Arcana of the Tarot, and is representative of the young, innocent person, at the beginning of life. Striding out, without fear or caution, life looks like an adventure. Ahead lies the great transformation that takes place as the child grows and becomes a student.
This can happen at any time in a person's life. In fact, it is almost as if life happens in spirals and with each spiral a level is completed. Then we move on to the next level, ever growing upwards, ever adding to our experience and knowledge.
When we follow this Way consciously, life becomes an adventure. As we learn ever more of ourselves and others, and of the process we call life, we become more and more confident as we come into our power.
