This card symbolizes purity, adventure, open horizons. It is the possibility to refresh life. It can be connected to the moment of conception in which everything seems possible.
I quote here a famous phrase from Albert Einstein: Imagination is more important than science, because science is limited, while the imagination embraces the whole world.
Thus, despite the negative connotation that is usually given to the word Fool, the world would stagnate without madness. That's why the Fool card from the deck of Rachel Pollack, shows him opening his arms like wings and flying (www.rachelpollack.com/ -www.intertarothouse.com/sun/hst/x4yv17w.htm).
So today breath in deeply the air of Life... and wonders can happen.
Meanings over time:
- Positively - innocence, spirit of adventure, conception, openness, surrender;
- Negatively - dementia, carelessness, apathy, irrationality, abandonment ...
