Learn The Fool love Tarot meaning! New beginnings are the main meaning of The Fool Tarot card. When this card makes an appearance, you will go through a transitional period, whether that be in your love life, career, friendships, or family. The Fool can be negative or positive depending on context and surrounding cards.
Often when The Fool shows up in a reading, it does so during a time when you’re moving from one stage in life to the next. You will be like The Fool, with a metaphorical bag of tricks on your back, ready to embark on a journey. You’ll feel a burning desire to try something new. Take a leap of faith and go for what you want without too much, though. Over-assessment can lead to hesitation, and The Fool does not hesitate. If you follow your heart and all will work out well.
However, there are more negative meanings associated with the Fool. The Fool often represents a lack of restraints and discipline. Rebellion and wildness are common interpretations. Perhaps you will go through a period when you run from your responsibilities? Maybe your love interest is the one doing the running?
In Tarot, The Fool predicts a time of risks. The Fool does not promise that the chances you take will pay off; it just represents a time when you will make the jump. If you’re playing hard to get, let loose and just tex them.
There is also the possibility that The Fool reflects an inability to make concrete decisions. Because in a Tarot deck The Fool is numbered zero – in arithmancy, this means that nothing has yet manifested into your reality. If you tend to sit on the fence and not take action, The Fool is warning you not to carry on this behavior into the future. Because it is the card of beginnings, this is not a good card to receive in an outcome position if starting over is not a welcoming scenario.
The Fool Love Tarot Meaning
The Fool is a good omen if you’re single and want a relationship. It can predict that you will be swept up by someone exciting and carefree. They will be fun to be around, and the relationship will feel like an adventure.
The Fool is not desirable if you’re looking for something more serious. This card can represent someone with a childish predisposition coming into your life. This person doesn’t know when the party ends. But, if there are cards further in the future which has a ‘commitment’ meaning (Ten of Cups, Two of Cups), this can indicate that eventually, your Fool will want to settle down.
If you’re already attached, then The Fool can be fine at the beginning of a relationship. However, if The Fool appears as a negative, obstacle, or disadvantage, then it can mean you or your partner do not take the partnership seriously. If The Fool lands in an outcome position, then the relationship, more than likely, does not have a future.
Are you looking for your ex to come back or for reconciliation? If you separated a while ago, The Fool means that they will reappear in your life without ill intentions, but they will not always be looking for a relationship. If you have recently split up, The Fool can mean that they will breeze into your life and give you false hope.

The Fool Feelings Meaning
Are you wondering how a potential partner feels about you? Then The Fool is rather neutral. This person doesn’t have ill intention towards you but isn’t feeling like settling down anytime soon. They are out for a good time. Therefore, your future with this individual cannot yet be guaranteed one way or the other.
Due to lack of consideration, your lover may be leading you on unintentionally without meaning to do so. On a more positive note, The Fool means they see you as someone who is fun to be around, which is a bonus.
The Fool Future Tarot Meaning
Finally, in future and outcome spread positions, I would say that the outcome is not yet set in stone. You should live in the present. Enjoy this partnership for what it is. For now, however, do not expect too much commitment from your partner as they are not yet ready to provide this for you.
Yes Or No with The Fool Love Tarot Meaning
General – The Fool is not a definite yes or no, more of a maybe. However, if your question is of a “should I”? Nature then it is a yes because this card advises you to leap into the unknown.
Do they like me? – Yes, this person likes you and thinks you are fun to be around.
Am I pregnant? – Because it is the card of the carefree, The Fool is no for pregnancy readings. However, if you do not want to be pregnant, The Fool is a warning that you should use protection!
Is this relationship going to last? – Who’s to say? Go with the flow and find out!
Does the future of this look promising? – There is no telling what is around the corner in this situation, but you should take risks.
Am I going to reconcile with my ex? – Your ex will reappear in your life, but they are not certain if they want a relationship with you. They may lead you on unintentionally.
The Fool As A Negative, Weakness or Obstacle
The Fool will appear in a negative, weakness, or obstacle Tarot spread position when you or someone else in the situation which you’re reading about (such as your lover) does not take the situation seriously enough for it to be successful. In some cases, The Fool can even represent infidelity.
The Fool As A Positive, Strength or Advantage
The Fool will appear in a positive, strength, or advantage Tarot spread position when you find fun in a situation and do not take life too seriously. Going with the flow, living day by day, and not worrying too much about the future is the way forward.
