Many tarot readers relate to The Fool as a joker, they call him innocent, childlike. Adventure seeking, Or funny.
Naturally when we watch a clown makes his tricks, watch a comedy at the cinema, charmed by the sparkling effect at the theater , we let go of much stress, we let our guard loose, we smile as our inner child participate in the party of laughter and we forget about all the advises of being careful.
However often enough I have discovered during my readings that those Fools are not always joking and many times they are pretty dangerous because, they make us take of our guard completely and forgetting to pay attention to what we are doing.
The Adventures of The Fool can be risky, the image in this card is standing on the edge of a cliff and if it won’t pay closer attention there are chances he will fall down and brake all his bones
And of course with a lil bit talent The Fool can actually mesmerize our attention away from any logic behavior.
To my personal believe this is exactly what happened in the last election of USA, of guard smiling in disbelieve to the follies of the coming to be President we all got caught off guard by the Joker letting him take his victory not in spite but because of his sometimes ridiculous behavior.
On the positive side we can always say to ourselves maybe going crazy was the only way to make some real changes, let’s just hope those changes will be awesome because sometimes believing innocently and from the bottom of your heart can make a real change against all logic expectations.
