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 someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the Fool, that means this person intends to know more about you — whether it’s to start a new relationship, deepen your bond, or begin a new phase with you. Even though they feel unsure or feel as though you’re shrouded in mystery, they want to take the leap of faith and dive right in. They intend to listen to what their heart says.
The Fool as intentions means that they are willing to do whatever it takes to get to know you more. They see potential in your relationship and plan on taking full advantage of that. You awaken something almost childish within them, like a childish sense of curiosity or wonder — the kind that makes you do reckless things. But, recklessness be damned, because they will continue to pursue you no matter what.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Fool is a sign of them intending to pursue you. They have fallen head over heels for you. However, these feelings may be fleeting, as only time will tell whether or not these feelings could deepen into something more. But, for the time being, they are quite interested in you and intend on making a move on you soon, while the feeling is still fresh.
For existing relationships, the Fool represents an intention to take things to the next level. Looking at you gives them butterflies, and they intend to chase after that feeling. It’s a sign that things are looking up in your relationship as the fire between you two has begun to burn brighter. The passion between you two has blossomed into something more. They intend to keep this newfound passion for you alive and will continue to take steps to keep the fire burning.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Fool shows that they intend to fix things. This symbolizes their desire to rekindle your relationship and get things right this time. Something has changed and they see you in a new light. They intend on spending more time with you. They want to fix things, but they are still undecided on how to go about it. They intend on getting back together, but they will not be taking any drastic measures as they want to test the waters first.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Fool means that this person’s intentions are unclear. Your partner loves you, however they aren’t quite sure. They intend to keep growing closer to you, but at this point, they don’t intend on making any final decisions. This may be a good thing as this allows you to take a step back and think about your relationship with a more critical eye. Your partner is happy with you but they also want to keep their options open.

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the Fool reversed, that means this person intends to take a step back. They are feeling confused and are worried that they may have made decisions too quickly. They want things to keep going, but this confusion keeps them at a standstill. They intend on getting a better bearing of what’s going on around them before proceeding.
The Fool reversed as intentions means that they don’t intend on making any heavy decisions at this moment. They recognize you as a spontaneous person who likes to live in the moment, but you may have been doing so at the expense of others. They intend on giving you some space so that you may both continue to grow as people. The timing is just not right.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Fool reversed is a sign of them intending to stay still. If you’re waiting around for someone, then this is a sign for you to move on because they don’t plan on making any moves right now. Their fear of the unknown has a complete grip over them and it’s halting any of their progress. There is no need to wait around for someone like this.
For existing relationships, the Fool reversed represents an intention to bring back the passion in your relationship. You may have noticed that you’ve been fighting over the same issues, and this is a sign that your partner wants to move past this. They want to go on spontaneous dates and rekindle your spark. They are intending on setting your relationship on the right track again.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Fool reversed shows that they intend on contemplating what to do. They have feelings for you, but they are unsure whether they should pursue your relationship again. You brought them happiness and they want to spend time with you, but at the same time, they cannot get over the pain of the past. They will continue to contemplate, and unless they can overcome their fears, they intend on doing nothing.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Fool reversed means that this person’s intentions are to stay right where you are. They have no intentions of committing to you even more, so marriage is off the table for now. They do not want to move forward. The timing is off, and there may have been things that happened between you two that are still weighing heavy on their mind. They intend on keeping their options open and will not take your relationship further until they’ve matured more.

For love readings, 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.
