What The Fool Can Teach Us About Love
Love Tarot and The Fool Card is one of the most common inquiries every Tarot reader receives regarding 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 person. The Tarot is a reminder that we are the ruler of our own destiny. 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.
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. With The Love Tarot and The Fool Card, when it comes to 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 do you do?
