The Fool lies at the beginning of the Major Arcana but it stands somewhat apart from the other cards too. Tarot readers usually see it as a metaphor for the journey through life. Others believe that he carries in his bag memories and lessons from previous incarnations. But most of them agree that it symbolizes the infinite potential inherent to every moment. This card stands for innocence and curiosity, excitement, enthusiasm and most of all joie de vivre. It is generally viewed as positive but it calls attention to watch your step, lest you fall and end up making a fool of yourself.

Work:Other people may have a hard time understanding and/or agreeing with your seemingly crazy or foolish ideas. But if you really believe in them, try to explain why you think they're feasible. It can also indicate that the time has come for you to start your own business.

Love:In this context, it shows that you're not yet ready to commit. However, the good news is that you're about to have lots of fun with your partner or on the social scene. But it's also vital to make sure than you don't treat true love lightly or superficially when it comes your way.
