This card represents new beginnings that may or may not have been planned, it is not something to fear, rather it might be interpreted as an adventure. You may well face trials and tribulations but the outcome depends on your approach. If a person faces their challenges with optimism and energy, they are far more likely to overcome any issues with ease. If you follow your heart you are likely to find the right path and having done so will overcome any obstacles. There may be a danger of falling in love with love rather than romantic involvement, or that your lover might be unreliable and incompetent. The Fool can represent vigour and pleasure but an unwillingness to commit.
The reversed card is a warning, as the image shows, he is about to walk off a cliff, the dog is barking but his master is oblivious. This is a warning, telling us to take our responsibilities more seriously and to pay attention to our surroundings, principally if we find ourselves in new surroundings or situations. We are not
alone in this world and there is often a dog barking a warning to us, if only we would listen for it.
