Creative energy, its its purest form, does not know division nor gender. Such concepts eventually solidify as energy gains experience. The Fool symbolizes this raw potentiality: energy not yet focused in a specific direction.
Many believe the Fool represents stupidity or idiocy, but this is not the case. On the contrary, its associated element of Air rules the mind. The card can thus also signify naive curiosity and childlike fascination — intellect untarnished by opinion or bias. Each thought is recognized in its pure, undiluted beauty and wonder. The Fool therefore epitomizes the blissful moment of experience free from judgment and/or preconceived notions.
