In the Tarot, the nil card is called The Fool, who essentially represents the blank slate, unencumbered by age, gender or cultural background. The Fool is also a person who is free of convention and unwritten rules.o a person who is free of convention and unwritten rules. At the courts of the Middle Ages, the time from which this ‘fool’ dates, it was one of the few who, under cover of banter and humor, could speak the truth to the king or courtiers. Because of its ‘foolishness’, it was considered ignorant, and wasn’t seen as a threat. In the meantime, however, it observed everything from its unique perspective, and was able to give close consideration to all of the archetypical events that passed by, without having a pertinent opinion about them. Strong convictions can lead to a restriction of possibilities. With The Storyteller, all storylines are on offer, because they are not judged or controlled by expectations or convictions. The Storyteller remains, above all else, itself.

Gift: Freedom of Choice

Characteristics of the Fool

Non-judgmental, in contact with itself, free of cultural conditioning, humorous, knows how to relax.
