0 - The Fool

This foolish rabbit is impulsive and unrestrained. This card often signifies irrational people or actions that are not thought out. It sometimes heralds a new and sometimes risky venture, a flight of fancy, or an act of carelessness.  Though possibly a lot of fun, the Fool is not to be taken too seriously, and signifies impulsive joy, excitement or play without thought to consequences.

Reversed: In the reversed position this card can mean reckless, frenzied or unthinking actions or events. It can be read as cautionary, as a need to take things more seriously or with more gravitas.
