The Fool - Carefree
The Fool symbolises a person who has chosen to give everything up to live a free existence. The Fool doesn't have a care in the world, he is free from material burden or any mental and emotional ties. This is a new beginning free of any plans, a light weight existence allowing the spirit to soar. The Fool has no idea where he is headed but trusts that he has tapped an inner truth that will guide him forward, leaving him free to live life in the moment and to pursue a road less travelled.
