The Fool is numbered zero in the Major Arcarna. He is the first character you encounter when opening a new deck of Tarot cards. He symbolises the potential both in the deck and in us.
Let’s examine the card
He wears a short brown tunic with a green cloak and a green checked hat. The hat has a gold pin holding seven rooster feathers.
He carries in his right hand some mistletoe berries. In his left he carries a stick with a bag attached.
A black hound accompanies him. The sun rises in the east, indicating the beginning of a new day.
The Fool is young and innocent. He represents every man and every woman. The staff he carries is his wand. The bag is his chalice. The earth is under his feet and the wind is in his hair.
The black greyhound bitch represents the Goddess and the rooster feathers represent God.
What does it mean?
