Fool Upright: The Fool is a very powerful card in the Tarot deck. This card represents a new beginning or an end to something old in your life. The Fool’s position reveals which aspects of your life may be needing a change. The Fool represents important decisions ahead which may not be easy to make, and it represents the risks for you. Approach these changes with care to gain the best positive outcome.
Fool Reversed: The Fool Tarot card shows that you are acting in total disregard of the consequences of your actions and indeed acting like ‘the fool’. You prefer to live in the moment rather than planning for what’s to come. You are acting recklessly, wanting to break free of the usual routine to find yourself but you are doing it in a way that completely disregards others. The Fool reversed tells you to be careful about potentially being taken advantage of or entering a deal where you do not fully understand the consequences of your decisions. If you are offered an opportunity that seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead so that you are not taken by surprise. Do your research and make sure you are well prepared for critical events.
