The Fool is the first card in the Major Arcana. In fact, the Major Arcana is also known as the Journey of the Fool. It is a journey that leads us all from innocence to enlightenment. The Fool starts this journey and all the cards that follow can be seen as important life lessons. Far from being a derogatory term, the Fool represents wide-eyed, child-like innocence and fearless optimism. Reversed, this energy takes on a restless, bored quality. Either way, the Fool is eager to try something new; to open up to new experiences. They are ready for things to change. Remember, even if you do not know the path, the journey is yours to define.


Waverly as the Fool

When we first meet Waverly, she is at the beginning of a journey of her own. Her belief in the status quo is starting to chip away, and we watch as she grows less content to settle. With a slight touch of endearing naivety, we get to know Waverly through her sunny, innocent outlook and unwavering belief in the triumph of good over evil. As she puts it, heroes always win. Like the reversed Fool, she is ready for change but the time had never quite been right. But through her adventures with Wynonna, her blossoming relationship with Nicole, and her connections to those she fights beside, she embarks with good cheer upon her journey towards enlightenment and growth.
