“Of all the Arcana, the Fool manifests the greatest freedom… Let him go forth as a pilgrim of eternity, homeward bound among the stars” (The Fool’s Pilgrimage 65, 69).
Amber Jayanti writes:
“The divine child is sent from high above to bring spiritual upliftment to humanity. The fool is the universal life-giving principle called super-consciousness, the changeless reality that expresses itself though continuous change” (Tarot for Dummies 76).
Joan Bunning writes:
“We begin with the Fool (0), a card of beginnings. The Fool stands for each of us as we begin our journey of life. He is a fool because only a simple soul has the innocent faith to undertake such a journey with all its hazards and pain” (Learning the Tarot).
And A.E. Waite writes:
” [The Fool] is a prince of the other world on his travels through this one-all amidst the morning glory, in the keen air. The sun, which shines behind him, knows whence he came, whither he is going, and how he will return by another path after many days. He is the spirit in search of experience” (The Pictorial Key to the Tarot).
