There has to be a starting point for everything, and in the Tarot, it's The Fool. In the different stages in our life's journey that are outlined by the 22 cards of the Tarot's Major Arcana, The Fool starts us off.
Always charming and often impulsively innocent, The Fool may worry people - even insult them - when they draw this card. But for the most part, The Fool is a positive card that signifies newness in people's lives - new adventures, a different direction they should take or unique opportunities that hadn't occurred to them previously.
Only when The Fool comes up in a reversed position should there be cause for concern. In those instances, this card may be a red flag warning you to stop before you plunge forward because there could be an unforeseen and negative flip side to an untested experience.
Tarot readings often help us see the risks and opportunities that lie before us so we can make better decisions. When you're preparing for phone psychic readings in which the Tarot will be used, acquaint yourself with the cards ahead of time so you'll have a better understanding of what the medium is explaining to you. You'll greet the advice with more confidence if you're familiar with the potential of each card beforehand.
Balancing Risks And Rewards
Only a fool would leap headlong into untested waters without a care for the potential dangers that lurk beneath the surface. The average person who's lived a bit and learned from heartache and mistakes will naturally consider all the angles before he or she commits to a new endeavor.
The Fool doesn't see it that way, and that's his charm. Just look at his card - he's walking along with all his possessions tied into a small bag and slung over his shoulder. They don't weigh him down because they're all behind him. He's all about looking forward.
While we shouldn't go through life constantly throwing caution to the wind the way The Fool does, his approach is a great lesson to us. He believes in life's potential and wants us to find that out for ourselves. His knowledge is instinctive, so he encourages us to listen to our inner voice and follow our dreams.
The Fool is a true discoverer, and with discovery comes risks. This card encourages us to take a certain amount of risk that comes with any new venture, because the rewards will likely outweigh the disadvantages.
