The value of the Arcane Shut, interpretation in combination with other cards
The Jester card (other names — Fool, Fool, Mad, Blissful, Fool) personifies the birth of a new process, impartiality, complete openness. Tarologists have it either at the beginning or at the end of the deck, so the jester is assigned a zero sequence number. Arkan talks about the joy of life and carelessness.
Without any expectations, the questioner enters a new period. But the Clown can also mean immaturity with all the attributes peculiar to her — excitement, levity, and stupidity.
In most classic decks (in the Ryder-Waite deck, in Tarot "78 Doors") on the map The Jester depicts a vagabond going to the edge of the abyss. But the character does not even notice.
Often this image is interpreted unequivocally: it symbolizes that stage in the life of the querent, when he goes forward without analyzing the way.
A tramp in a colorful dress carries a bundle on his shoulder on a stick. This speaks of his detachment to all material. He is accompanied in the way by a faithful friend — a dog.
It symbolizes the subconscious instincts that do not give the Clown to fall off the edge.
In the Tarot Toth image of the Jester is somewhat different. On the lasso you can see a horned man, located in an oval-shaped egg.
His arms and legs go a little beyond the outline of this egg. In the lower part of the lasso there is an inconspicuous crocodile pattern.
A tiger clung to the foot of the Clown with his teeth.
The crocodile symbolizes inner endurance and creativity. Tiger represents fear.
Despite his bites, the character continues to look ahead.
Horns on the Jester’s head symbolize a heightened perception of information coming from the outside world. The spirals surrounding the character mean unity with the cosmos at the same time on several levels: intellectual, sensual, spiritual, material.
Grapes and coins with astrological signs depicted on them are a symbol of fertility and creative wealth.
Two embraced babies at the bottom of one of the oval coils symbolize relationships with others. Querent should ask a question about what kind of people he would like to see next to him.
The butterfly symbolizes the transformation of the individual. Caduceus — healing.
A jester is a card that always marks something new, something that will soon burst into the life of the querent. Its direct meaning is chaos.
But usually such a creative mess does not cause anything dangerous (unless other arcane players point to the opposite).
The map symbolizes the start of a new cycle, the launch of a project, and cardinal changes.
The man is at the crossroads. He realizes that the upcoming path will not be easy, but the voice of his intuition suggests that he will be able to circumvent all the obstacles, and even difficulties will be beneficial.
The questioner may encounter anything, and these events will turn the usual course of affairs. The jester is an indicator of freedom.
Right now there is a chance to start anew, to open a blank page in life.
In reverse position, the Jester points to restless, impulsive activity. The questioner does not consider the consequences of his actions.
Sometimes they are done for purely demonstrative purposes.
Inverted Jester points to a chaotic change of occupation. A person starts several cases at once, but brings nothing to a logical conclusion.
The jester in this position personifies imprudence, thoughtless waste of time and energy. Difficulties are not solved.
In important matters a person behaves carelessly. The choice is fatal.
Sometimes the card symbolizes trying to cling to the past, lack of free will. The beginner’s questions are blocked in the bud.
The personified personified by Jute’s lasso has exceptional intuition. Much is available to this person by virtue of his hereditary talents or random knowledge. In life, he is not constrained.
He is different from the crowd, not afraid to dream, not attached to material things. The clothes of the Fool are modest, and all property is located in one small knot. But this man doesn’t need anything more.
He quickly recovers from a fall, as he is internally not tied to achievements or to failures.
In the opposite position, the Fool points to an infantile person who does not want to grow up. He is guided by idealistic principles, divorced from reality.
Such a person does not want to concentrate on a specific task for a long time, her attention constantly jumps from one object to another.
The main scenario of behavior for a person indicated by the Jester card is a game. Nothing for him is weighty or serious. He perceives his beloved as a toy, a doll.
The facts of real life do not matter to him — his own fantasies are much more important for this person.
In the layouts of love, Jester often points to capricious people, parasites, or kept women.
The games of the Jester can be different: both enjoyable, funny, and aggressive. He does not think about the consequences of his actions.
The relationship of such a person with other people is similar to the child’s desire to have a pet: at first he cares for the animals, and then it becomes a burden, and care for him lies on the shoulders of older relatives.
Jester is a positive card for single people. It can be interpreted as a deck advice to take a chance, try something new.
In the intimate terms, the Jester recommends getting rid of any prohibitions, to be more liberated.
In the upside down position indicates the need to show forethought. Before taking active steps in the relationship, the questioner should consider the possible consequences.
Critical assessment of the situation will not prevent: in time having got rid of rose-colored glasses, you can protect yourself from serious difficulties in the future.
Jester means the beginning of a project or enterprise. In this case, a person is guided not by sober calculation, but acts on chance.
The map indicates difficulties with planning, making forecasts for the future. But at the same time the questioner is active and active.
The map indicates spontaneous creative activities. The jester is always obsessed with new ideas, he knows no restrictions. Psychologically the questioner is able to "flow".
Difficulties begin at the moment when the final result of his work must meet certain requirements (for example, a custom-made design project). Therefore, the Jester for people of creative professions can be a serious test.
It is impossible to act in defiance of the flow of inspiration, but the lack of discipline has disastrous consequences.
In the opposite position, the lasso speaks about the avoidance of responsibility, non-professionalism. A person does not want to listen to someone else’s advice, in vain sprays his strength.
Negligence, negligence, idleness.
The card is not favorable for businessmen. When a given arcana falls out, an entrepreneur is recommended to temporarily step back from business (for example, take a vacation), not to dive into problem solving.
If the surrounding cards are unfavorable — the project is doomed to failure.
The jester points to the questioner’s dismissive attitude towards his state of health. Usually this goes without negative consequences (except for cases when other cards indicate the opposite).
But injuries due to carelessness pass through the same lasso, so the querent should be careful not to allow unnecessary risk.
In terms of mental health, the Jester points to mental disorders and social inadequacies. In the opposite position (as well as in any position in combination with negative cards), the Jester symbolizes serious violations: mania, paranoia, alcoholic psychosis, and a neurotic state.
The jester predicts a carefree and easy day, as the questioner simply does not pay attention to possible problems. Arkan recommends leaving seriousness.
Much more appropriate today will be a creative approach.
The jester’s advice is: rejoice, flirt, give flowers, sing cheerful songs and take nothing to heart.
The jester is a card of the highest wisdom and at the same time deliberate foolishness, but its meaning is specified only in combination with other arcane.
Tarologists believe that if the Jester falls out when he divines a specific question, this means that the deck does not answer: either the question is incorrectly formulated or it does not matter for the questioner himself.
In combination with older lassoons, the Fool has the following interpretations:
|Wheel of Fortune|
Positive junior arcana can say that the questioner has a tendency to healthy self-criticism. He is not deprived of a sense of humor.
When fortune-telling on a situation Fool foreshadows both fun and fun, and scandals associated with excessive jestering.

The story of one of our readers Alina R .:
Money has always been my main concern. Because of this, I had a bunch of complexes.
I considered myself a failure, problems at work and in my personal life haunted me. However, I decided that I still needed personal help.
Sometimes it seems that the matter is in you, all the failures are only a consequence of bad energy, the evil eye or some other evil force.
But who will help in a difficult life situation, when it seems that all life is rolling down the slope and passing by you. It is difficult to be happy working as a cashier for 26 thousand rubles, when I had to give 11 for renting an apartment. It was my surprise when my whole life suddenly changed for the better overnight.
I could not even imagine that one could earn so much money that at first glance a knickknack could have such an effect.
It all started with the fact that I ordered a personal one.
