The Fool in the Constellation Tarot card deck is depicted as the constellation of Columba, the Dove. In Greek mythology, a dove sent by the Argonauts to fly through the Moving Rocks at the Black Sea. It was said that these Rocks would crush the first living thing that came between them. But the dove flew with such speed that the Rocks crashed against each other, leaving the bird unharmed. The Argonauts had thereby ensured their safe passage ahead. 🕊️

The Fool card symbolizes a fresh start, a new chapter in your life. In a Tarot card reading, the Fool card represents taking a step forward into the unknown. It takes courage and complete trust to venture into new territory, even when you don't know what awaits. Like the innocent dove, you have total trust in life, in your abilities and no self-doubt to sabotage your success.
