The Fool is the card of new beginnings, amazing opportunities, and unlimited potential. Labeled card number “0,” The Fool is traditionally the first and the last card in the Tarot. The Fool is there as the bridge between each cycle of endings and beginnings. As a result, the Tarot is called “The Fool’s Journey,” as a metaphor for the cycles of love and life.
The Fool is young and full of wonder, innocence, optimism, and freedom. He overlooks a cliff, but is too inexperienced to be afraid. Like the white rose he holds in his hand, he is pure. With his companion by his side, and the sun shining on his back, he is ready to love freely and dive into life headfirst.
If you are asking about how someone feels about reconciling with you, and you draw the Fool, that means that this person is seriously considering getting back together with you. This person believes that there could be a new beginning between the two of you. They also recognize that they’ve been foolish in the past when it came to your relationship. They thought that the grass was greener on the other side, but it wasn’t. They miss you and they want to get back together with you.
The Fool as reconciliation is a positive sign. It means that this person is willing to throw caution to the wind and take a leap of faith into the unknown with you. They’ve spent time thinking about whether or not the two of you would be able to work out. They’ve thought about the pros and the cons, and they’re ready to say, “Let’s just give it a try and see what happens.” They see that the two of you could turn the page on your relationship and start over with a clean slate. They know that there is room for the two of you to go much deeper.
When your person thinks about reconciliation with you, they feel happy, joyful, relaxed, and carefree around you. When they think about you, they feel spontaneous and like they are a true free spirit. You help them feel in touch with their inner child. Just as they were in childhood, they are full of curiosity and wonder. Everywhere they look, they see potential. This feeling is very refreshing and rejuvenating.
If you’ve recently split up, the Fool means that your ex will reappear in your life shortly. They may not be direct about it, but they want to try again with you. They still believe in your relationship, and they feel that the two of you have not realized its true potential yet. They are sorry about how they contributed to the end of your relationship, and they want to take a chance on you again.
If you’ve been in separation for a while, the Fool means that your ex has realized that the grass is not actually greener on the other side. They wanted to enjoy life as a single person, but ultimately, their mind always came wandering back to you. They know that they’ve been a fool. They want to put all of your past in the past, and they want to start over with you. They will make their intentions clear to you soon.
If the two of you are still considering whether or not you should break up, the Fool means that your partner realizes that breaking up with you is foolishness. They want to start over and try again with you before calling it quits. They can come off as whimsical or not serious, but they do actually mean it. They want to try everything before calling it off. They want to give it another shot.

If you are asking about how someone feels about reconciling with you, and you draw the Fool reversed, that means that this person has thought about it, but ultimately feels like a new beginning between you is blocked. This could be on their end. For example, they might feel fearful of the unknown, and that is preventing a reconciliation. They are asking themselves, “What am I getting myself into?” They are worried that any action will lead to a result where they are out of control, and so they would rather stay at a standstill than pursue reconciliation.
The Fool reversed as reconciliation is a negative sign. It means that this person feels stuck and are not able to move your reconciliation forward. They feel that both of you still have a lot of learning and growing to do. Something is holding them back, whether that is where you both are in the world right now, or the timing is not right. They feel that it would be foolish to pursue something that has already shown itself to have not worked out previously.
When your person thinks about reconciliation with you, they feel that there was potential there, but that that ship has sailed. They just don’t know if it is worth the potential risk. They wouldn’t want to waste your time again, or risk you getting hurt again. They feel that this can be a new beginning, but they aren’t sure that it is one that they want to pursue.
If you’ve recently split up, the Fool reversed means that your ex wants to explore other opportunities right now. While he or she likes you, they want to know what else is out there. They want to make sure that they’ve seen everything before committing. That’s why they don’t want to get back together right now.
If you’ve been in separation for a while, the Fool reversed means that your ex believes that it is better for both of you to find love elsewhere. While you were together, they felt like the two of you were fighting the same fight over and over again. You were stuck in a cycle, and they feel like getting back together isn’t going to solve that problem.
If the two of you are still considering whether or not you should break up, the Fool reversed means that your partner feels like you are both stuck in a cycle, and it’s better to get out of it rather than try to fix something that’s already broken. On one hand, you bring them great joy, they enjoy spending time with you, and they feel that they have a special relationship with you. But on the other hand, they are also afraid to start again with you. You have both been reckless with your emotions, and they still feel those past hurts. Unless they can overcome their fear and blockage, they are unlikely to pursue reconciliation or get back together with you.

For love and reconciliation, the Fool is full of duality. Just as the Fool, as the 0th card, is the start and end of the Tarot (often aptly titled as the Journey of the Fool), the Fool is also at the beginning and end of any relationship. The Fool can be a new beginning for a reconciliation reading. If you are willing to start again at the beginning, you will need to see where it goes, and if the relationship will develop into something deep and meaningful. If you are nearing the end of the cycle, you may need to decide if you’ve learned its lessons and are ready to close out this circle gracefully.
