The Fool's Meaning of the Symbols.

The Fool tarot card
In Tarot the Fool card symbolizes the start of a fresh new journey into unknown territory.

The Cliff symbolizes the unseen pitfalls he may face along the way.

The snow covered mountains symbolise the fool being devoid of spiritual knowledge, they also symbolise the Fools challenges in life, his mission here could be to gather all the knowledge needed to attain a higher spiritual level and put it in the bag he carries then bring it to the mountains, they also represent his destination. The bag he carries also represents that part of the mind where all our knowledge and experiences are kept to be remembered and called upon when needed.

The Eagle shown on the bag symbolizes inner power and freedom, the Fool carries the bag on a wand to symbolise the magical powers of the inner mind.

The Dog symbolizes our natural basic inner instincts, here the dogs is anxiously warning the fool of the dangers that lie ahead and the folly of his actions. The Fools stance tells us he is taking no notice of his gut feelings, he feels only the freedom of the open countryside and  not much else is getting through to his conscious mind. Dogs also symbolise loyalty, friendship and companionship.

Roses can symbolise our passions, the white one the fool carries tells us of the innocent purity of his inner thoughts, the sun is also white to symbolise the freedom of a pure spirit.

A yellow sky symbolizes the limitless knowledge that can be found on our travels through life, if we are prepared to seek it out.

The red feather in the fools cap symbolises a future rebirth, physical vitality and courage, it can also herald good fortune, he also wears a white garment to symbolise his innocence but this is covered by a loose garment covered in mish-mash of symbols to represent free but frivolous spirit.
The Fool tells us to be prepared for the unexpected, and make sure we remember life's important lessons.
