The Fool card of the Tarot often gets a bad rap. It is most often seen as someone who is naive or stupid, but also, as the first card in the deck, it can represent new beginnings too. What a lot of people don’t realize, is the close connection the Fool Card has with money and finances in a Tarot Reading.
There is an old saying “A Fool and his money are soon parted.” Discover how to help avoid that happening to you with these 6 possible meanings of the Fool Card appearing in your next Tarot Card spread.
- When the Fool Card shows up in a reading about finances it can mean that finances are going to be low or zero. It can mean to avoid making an investment because you won't make a profit. In which case, it is best to SAVE and be very frugal with your money and even to ask for help from family or friends.
- If you are refusing to get help or being irresponsible with your finances, the Fool Card might come up in a reading to warn you that you are being unwise and to correct the errors of your ways before it gets worse.
- If a psychic advisor is asked what the outcome of a certain job opportunity will be and the Fool card comes up, it usually means that the amount of money will be low or that it won't work out. Another, better job, is likely coming your way. If you can afford to wait, it will be best not to take the current job opportunity.
- This card can reflect that you aren't taking action or are being lazy. Inaction has its place, so depending on the card that follows the Fool it might be a good thing, but it can also be a card of urgency that if you don't act now you will lose out on a positive opportunity.
- Your thoughts and feelings are of fear and failure about money. The Fool will showcase this to you so that you can go inward and heal. It reminds you to not take life too seriously and find time to have fun and laugh.
- In my own personal readings for my life, the Fool Card kept showing up. When I asked my spirit guide why, they shared that I was moving past a limiting belief. I had been operating under scarcity consciousness but had healed it and from here on I would be living in more abundance and prosperity. So, the Fool card can be a good omen that you have healed and have "graduated" in a sense to the next level.
Interpreting Tarot can be tricky, but don't fear any Tarot Card, even one called The Fool. Each card is a blessing of spiritual guidance.
