The Fool At Work

Fool, Aquatic Tarot,
The Fool, Aquatic Tarot
"Living on the edge is perilous, but the view is breathtaking."

The Fool is a wonderful image of new beginnings and adventure. Here we see a flamboyantly dressed figure standing by the edge of a cliff on a journey into the unknown. The Fool is taking in the view, and it is up to us to imagine what he sees.

The Fool in a business reading indicates a new job, a new project, perhaps working with new colleagues ...any change in the workplace that holds new opportunities and possibilities yet to be revealed.

You don't know what the future holds, or what the consequences of the changes taking place will be, but the Fool is asking you to be open-minded and optimistic.

The Fool can also indicate that you are ready for a change, there is that urge inside you to start afresh, and there is no better moment than the present.

There are risks involved, of course, but is up to you to overcome your fears and take the plunge into a new direction. It would be naive to assume that there won't be obstacles and hiccups along the way, but that shouldn't put you off. Have faith in yourself that you can overcome the ups and downs in your new venture.

If you are currently stuck in a job you don't like, the Fool is asking you to bear it with a cheerful personality rather than openly expressing your frustrations amongst colleagues.

Avoid nagging, complaining and indulging in malicious, unproductive gossiping. Instead, be happy-go-lucky, friendly, enthusiastic, supportive, professional and take pride in doing a good job.

Spread positive vibes!

Just remember that your current job is just a stepping stone towards something better; new opportunities will present themselves shortly, or you can initiate them.

When you are faced with a new situation, try not to have any pre-conceived ideas. Leave past experiences behind. In the image, we can see the Fool has packed what he needs (not much!) in his little pack tied on a stick. Especially when past experiences were negative, they can be limiting to you right now.

The Fool is linked to the element air, which is associated with intellect, logic and reason. The Fool's positive attitude is a mindset that is beneficial to you, when this card comes up in a reading:

  • In business meetings and discussions: be genuinely open to suggestions, rather than dismissive.
  • Consider giving a new employee or colleague a chance you wouldn't have at other times.
  • Say 'yes' rather than 'no'.
  • Be flexible.
  • Try something new you haven't tested before.
  • Think outside the box, or just think outside :)
  • A training course may offer you more new knowledge and benefits than you think. Sign up for it and enjoy!
  • Business trips and travel will help you network and establish new and useful business contacts.
  • Be excited about new beginnings and the possibilities they present, especially changes you didn't chose or think you don't want.

But don't be gullible either! That get-rich-quick scheme someone is trying to persuade you to participate in, is rubbish and a con, and you know it :)

The Fool is a Hippy at heart and guided instinctively into the right direction. Take his qualities on board to make the most of changes around you, and welcome new, exciting experiences and challenges into your life.

  1. Hi, Miss Hayes. Thank you for writing about The Fool. I asked the cards if writing fiction is the best way to fully financially support myself and received: Judgement, which I took to mean "yes". As a Confirmation Card I got The Fool. I personally feel that in my current career, my resources are being wasted and I keep getting sick and seeing my doctor a couple time a month. I guess I just don't subscribe to working my tail off at a job I hate just to be able to only enjoy myself at the age of sixty-five. Why not enjoy myself WHILE I'm working? It's really about believing in one's self and taking that leap. Thank you! P.S. I would love to quit my job, and I will when I've saved up enough money.

    1. That sounds great! It's always good to strive to do a job you enjoy rather than getting ill over it. Good luck with making that leap! :)
