The Fool tarot card description

The Fool in tarot card readings illustrates a young person walking happily into the universe. He is taking his first few steps, which is making him excited, joyful, and exuberant. He has nothing with him but a small sack. He cares for nothing— no hurdles, no dangers that shall be in his path in the future. For sure, he shall soon experience the very first of these possibilities, for if he moves a little forward, he would topple over the edge of the cliff he is approaching.

However, this barely concerns him. And here, we are almost unsure whether he is naïve or unaware of the path he is on. The dog near his heels barks loudly at him, warning him to fall back. The dog tries to make him aware of the surroundings and warns him that if he moves forward, he might never see the adventures he longs or dreams for.
