What The Fool Can Teach Us About Love Tarot
One of the most common inquiries I receive as a Tarot reader is the question of Love: When will I meet Mr. or Mrs. Right? Although the Tarot often refers to future possibilities and potential outcomes, finding love is really up to each individual. The Tarot is a reminder that we are the instruments for our own destinies. We are like the Fool, embarking on a journey of self-development and self-growth. We have countless opportunities to carve our own paths and we are truly the masters of our own fates.
The Fool represents the individual that does not necessarily have courage, but does have the willingness to journey into the unknown. He is the risk taker, open and willing to explore new opportunities and directions. He personifies the child within, constantly trying new things and discovering new paths. His unbiased openness and vulnerability always enable him to learn something new. The Fool represents the potential in all things. He is there to remind us that anything is possible.
In love tarot readings, The Fool card often represents the possibility of a new relationship. If love is something you have been waiting for, it's time to get into action and open yourself to all types of new opportunities. This would be the time to let go of your fear and take some risks. If you have had a secret crush or have had your eye on someone special, let them know how you are feeling. You have nothing to lose. Remember to be who you are and leave the past behind you. If you are currently in a relationship, invite a little excitement in. the possibilities are limitless.
Unfortunately, as we experience life we distance ourselves from our inner Fools. Our perspectives and beliefs systems become shaded and biased. We become fearful of trying new things and taking risks. In love matters, we may have been hurt or disappointed. We no longer approach others with a vulnerable and open perspective. Instead, we are cautious and inhibited. We become afraid of rejection and criticism. We want to find love, but are apprehensive and tentative. So what does one do?
We follow the path of the Fool in love Tarot. The Fool is not concerned if he gets rejected or turned down. Instead, he happily tries again without concern, embarrassment or fear of failure. He does not care whether he looks ridiculous or foolish. If something doesn’t workout, he tries again. The Fool represents the part or ourselves that that does not care whether something is perfect or if we make a mistake. He is there to encourage us to continue on without hesitation or trepidation.
Try to let go of any fear of rejection. The Fool reminds you that there is nothing wrong with putting yourself out there. Rejection is part of life. However, The Fool encourages you to keep trying and set yourself free from any fears you may be limited by.
Finding love can be an adventurous journey. Tap into your inner Fool and allow the future to unfold. If you draw the Fool in a Tarot reading, it’s time to think outside of your box. Free yourself from feelings of self-consciousness and take some chances. Listen to your intuition and trust your process. The Fool reminds us that the journey can be just as rewarding as the end result. The true goal is to enjoy the trip.
