Numbered 0, The Fool begins our journey through the Major Arcana.
This is one my favorite cards in the Tarot of Vampyres deck – I love all the movement! Here, The Fool reminds me of a vampiric Nureyev (who, by the way, was christened Lord of Dance). Even the masks below – which represent the four Tarot suits – are reminiscent of the traditional symbols of theater: the comedy and tragedy masks; while the red roses recall the bouquets given to lead ballerinas. Rising from his grave with the grace of an dancer, He is ready to start his new adventure…as a Vampyre. This is THE card of new beginnings and experiences, personal growth, adventure, and creative potential. The Fool is nudging you down a new path or endeavor. Like this newly-born Vampyre, embrace it fearlessly and joyfully.
(Ruled by the element of Air, The Fool is also called the Spirit of Aether and is connected to the energy of Uranus. It represents freedom, inspiration, curiosity, and courage.)
