The Fool asks you to have confidence as you embark on a new adventure. Know that when you feel grounded—when you feel that connection to the world around you, regardless of where you stand, your instincts will keep you afloat. Much like that dog on the river bank, there will always be those who will project their fears as they are so focused on what may be lurking about in the water that they could never conceive of a vessel that would be strong enough to protect them. Trust your instincts and have faith that the journey you are on will not be in vain. If the Fool appears in a reading, you may want to ask yourself if you are trying too hard to control this situation? Can you go with the flow? On the other hand, you may need to consider if your actions are reckless or if you are acting impulsively without acknowledging the consequences.
