The Fool (“Le Mat”) – Card 0/Card XXII

As announced yesterday, I’ll be spending some time in the coming weeks putting up material on this website that’s aimed at capturing some basic Tarot card meanings for each of our 78 members of the deck.  I’m trying to do this in such a way that the results will focus on the basic traits of a card that are common to all of the major decks’ portrayals of that card.

Today marks the inaugural post in this series, as I take a gander at THE FOOL. What I put forth in that entry will hopefully feel applicable to whichever version of the Tarot’s Fool you know best, be it the Rider-Waite-Smith version shown above, the Crowley-Harris Thoth version, the Tarot de Marseilles version, or something other than those.

As always, your feedback is more than welcome!  Do you have questions about The Fool?  Did I not cover something about the card that you feel is important?  Is there anything you’d like to see included when I get to subsequent cards?  You can always reach me via my CONTACT page…

For now, I hope you enjoy those new thoughts on The Fool!
