Edmonton Tarot: The Fool (0)
Interpretation: The Fool is the first card in the Major Arcana. This card denotes unconsciousness, spontaneity, naivety, adventurousness -- someone with "beginner's mind." The Fool represents unlimited potential. It is numbered zero because the concept of nothingness contains all possibilities within itself. The Fool is open to new ideas and experiences and is willing to take risks, sometimes quite recklessly. The Fool is a seeker who is just starting out on the path to consciousness, transformation and wisdom. But the Fool's tremendous energy is unfocused and without direction.
Image: The Edmonton International Fringe Festival is North America's oldest and largest annual festival of alternative theatre. This Jester (Fool) is the logo of the Edmonton Fringe. It's found on a large donor recognition wall in the Old Strathcona Arts Barns where the organization is headquartered. My Rare One and I enjoy fringing every August, along with thousands of other Edmontonians.
