The Fool’s Journey

Welcome to our series on the Tarot ILUMA deck! In this post, we will be exploring the Fool card, the first and last card in the Tarot.

The Fool card represents the querent, or you. It is a reminder to zoom out and access all levels of our being, to see the bigger picture. As the Fool journeys through the Major Arcana, they encounter lessons, initiations, tests, and victories that lead them to their ultimate attainment: union with the Grandest Beloved, or God.

Once the Fool has achieved mastery, they may choose to forget everything and start the journey anew, or they can maintain their mastery while living in the world. To the outside world, the Fool may appear carefree and jolly, but they are also seen as a master perceived as mad by the sleeping masses, or as a brand-new soul waiting to be programmed.

The Fool reminds us to view every soul as a master, no matter how they may appear. We must trust and honor each person’s self-possession and mastery, even if we don’t understand it. This card encourages us to get a bird’s eye perspective and to realize that not everything is as it seems. It reminds us to honor the divinity within all and embrace the mystery of the unknown.
