So, let’s begin with the first card of the major arcana “THE FOOL” 

Visual Representations in the Card

The fool card represents a young man who has set off on a journey. The character is standing on the edge of a cliff, which represents the uncertainty of the next step. This also represents the faith of the character where he believes that “everything will work out just fine” and that he is safe. The character has put on extravagant clothes representing the ability to enjoy the richness of life. He holds a sack on a stick in his right arm and a white flower in his left. He looks skyward as the sun shines in its full glory. In the background are mountains representing the terrain of the life that lies ahead of him. He is also accompanied by his companion, his dog. The overall visuals are that of optimism and faith. A sigh of journey and movement.
