General Meaning of The Fool

The Fool is the first card of the Major Arcana, which begins with zero. In a reading the Fool typically represents the person receiving the reading rather than someone associated with that person. The Fool is most closely associated with the revolutionary planet, Uranus. Like the Fool, who travels light, Uranus often urges us to let go of things that no longer serve our current situation, so that we can move freely forward.

The Fool appears when you are facing an important change or seeking an experience. Follow your heart, believe in universal guidance, and believe in yourself.

The Fool in the Past/Yesterday Meaning

The Fool in the past position of a reading can confirm that choices made in the past have led you to where you are today. Were those choices in line with your true path or did they cause you to miss opportunities? If you made naïve or uninformed choices in the past, you may be dealing with the consequences presently. The Fool in the past position can also indicate that a creative idea you thought of long ago may now be ready for the world to see.

The Fool in the Present/Today Meaning

When the Fool shows up in the present position, it’s an indication that you are about to make some big changes in your life or embark upon an entirely new journey. Whether the journey means literal travel to a new place or just a change of pace, the way ahead is inviting even if it’s unknown. You’re feeling impulsive and eager for change, a feeling that lasts as your new path unfolds.

The Fool in the Future/Tomorrow Meaning

When the Fool appears in the future position of a reading, it speaks of spiritual expansion – a good sign if you’re about to start something new related to vocation or education. You’re thirsty for knowledge, your personal and professional goals are shifting, and you’re setting new goals for your life in general. There is a freeing feeling attached to the Fool in your reading. You’re moving away from past restrictions and possibly even ties to the material world. The Fool isn’t foolish, but he is naïve; be sure to do your due diligence before making major moves.

Love and Relationships Meaning for the Fool


If you’re looking for love or in the beginning of a relationship, you’re very interested in getting to know one another. Despite that excitement, you may also feel reluctant or afraid to explore the path to love together, but the Fool urges you on, curious to see the possibilities. On the other hand, you may enjoy being single and living a more spontaneous lifestyle. You may be more interested in just having fun without the seriousness of commitment. If this is the case, just be careful not to overlook a genuine opportunity for true connection that may cross your path.


If you’re in a relationship, the Fool can indicate you’re considering exploring other options – perhaps distancing yourself from your current situation or dating more than one person at a time. You’re likely seeking something exciting and unplanned. Although you may be ready to make a move, you may also be feeling unsure about how to enact such a change.

Career Meaning for the Fool

A new career or entrepreneurial adventure may be calling, even if it’s unfamiliar territory. You’re filled with ideas and excitement and are therefore eager to learn a new skill or start in a new business, and you are willing to take a learn-as-you-go approach. Also, if you’ve been thinking about leaving your current job, the Fool would indicate that this may happen soon.

Financial Meaning for the Fool

The Fool is generally a positive sign that your finances are going to rise. This could come in the form of a promotion, a raise, a new job, etc. but it is usually tied to something you have earned. In an ambitious moment, you may even give into the temptation to invest. Make sure to check facts before, rather than after, you take that leap, and things will turn out all right for you.
