Major Arcana The Fool
This card from the Major Arcana The Fool is the start of a Series of 22 cards. Each card shows a life lesson that needs to be learned before you can move on. The cards are rich in symbolism and colour and tell their stories in different ways.
Since this is a Major Arcana card the focus is on the life lesson that you go through. The Fool is the exception because it shows the readee on his/her journey.
In this Major Arcana card you see a young man standing on a cliff or mountain top on the brown earth and stones. He is looking up at the yellow sky where the sun is shining. His clothes are ornate, look clean and he is wearing a hat with a red feather. At his side is a white dog. In the background there are snow capped mountains that have some sharp peaks.
Sun: clarity, hope, energy
Flower: white rose for purity and innocence
Knapsack: bringing what you need
Feather: connection to spirit, passion
Dog: Loyal companion
Brown: Grounded, realistic
Yellow: Intelligence and positive energy
White: Purity, Innocence
Blue: Calm energy, Reflection
This card has the number 0 because The Fool is not a life lesson but the person walking through life learning the lessons
