What This Card Means to Me

Here we tap into the potential of The Fool but with greater wisdom, direction, and purpose. We’re no longer moving ahead blindly here. Instead we are taking advantage of the changes and opportunities we see before us that we were hoping to find back when we were just The Fool at the beginning of our journey. Our faith in life, the universe, and everything – including in ourselves – could pay off if we are willing to endure and keep our eye on the big picture.
