The Emerald Tolemac Fool card
Emerald Tolemac Fool Card is all about new beginnings or endings. The Fool typically is a good card. If it shows up in your card readings, it can indicate that you are about to embark on a thrilling, unanticipated new journey. It can also represent that something is coming to an end and a new beginning will be on the other side of that ending. Thus, the Fool’s journey can be a repeating cycle in one’s own life. One journey’s end is simply the start of another.
The Fool’s number is zero, which stands for limitless potential. It is the only card in the deck that is associated with zero. Zero represents consciousness and as such it is the conscious state of being present without the influence of the ego. This is what happens when a baby becomes separate from his mother and separate from the divine realms where his or her soul first came from. At this stage there is nothing but being present, there is nothing but simply being. The vibrations of the numbers that the Fool card appears with are strengthened, amplified, and magnified by zero, the number of the “God power” or “God force” and Universal energies. The number zero unifies all other numbers’ characteristics and draws one nearer to the “God power” or Source.
The Fool reminds us that while going with our intuition may seem foolish, especially to others, when we do so, we are supported by spirit. While spirit is unseen, it does manifest itself in the world around us. When we recognise that spirit is leading us, it makes itself more available to us. Furthermore, the message of this card is that only when we journey with purity and steadfast faith toward the promptings of spirit, can we hope to achieve the great destiny meant for us. We can’t hope to bring to fruition a successful outcome for the challenge that we are facing without that purity and faith. In a Tarot spread, The Fool reminds us of these things.
In the Emerald Tolemac Fool card we can see that a young man has just walked out of a portal into this 3D dimension. He leaves behind a world of higher vibration where we are just light-bodies. This dimension is one that is merged with all consciousness. It is a place where sacred animals such as the Unicorn exist. This transfer from pure consciousness represents his fall into human form. As such, it is the process in which the fool must become aware of himself.
At this stage he is naïve and innocent, unaware of what to expect and totally unbiased. He has no experience in this world and has no idea what lies ahead of him. We can assess from this that he has an inability to foresee the risks that he is unknowingly facing. He can be impulsive, optimistic and can recklessly throw himself into a situation that he isn’t equipped to handle. When the Emerald Tolemac Fool card appears in your reading, it can signify that you need to take a leap of faith. The portal into the celestial worlds reminds us that we have divine protection and will be assisted by divine helpers when we acknowledge our divine connection to that realm.
A celestial palace can be seen through the portal and implies that it is important for the Fool to remember the time when he existed in even higher spheres of awareness.
We can see a Unicorn through the portal to that celestial world. The Unicorns are very magical. They come from the same place as the White Lion, the White Eagle, and the White Tiger. Those magical animals exist for the protection of humans. Sometimes too, the Unicorn will place its horn into the place on a human where there is pain. The Unicorn then transfers healing energy to that man or woman through its horn. In the celestial dimensions where they come from there are flowers that are the size of a small house. The Unicorns sleep in those flowers.
Our young man is standing with a spiritual white dog by his side; the dog is a faithful animal and is trying to protect the young man from placing his foot on the horn of plenty. The young man did not see that horn because he was walking in happiness and joy. The spiritual dog is the Fool’s ally, constantly alerting the Fool of the dangers that lie before him. Symbolically, he represents our sixth sense, or our gut instincts. The presence of this spiritual guide tells us that we have helpers from other realms who will prod and prompt us to be cautious of situations that could potentially be harmful or dangerous to us.
His dog is a protector, confidant, friend, and will also keep him balanced in a way that is appropriate to justice and truth. This dog, much like the Egyptian Anubis, will weigh the soul of the young man and remind him always on this journey that he must choose between what is good and right, and what seems easy or accomplished more quickly.
Dogs also represent playfulness and are a part of our psyche that represent that which is able to be tamed and domesticated, able to be part of society. This may speak to the fact that the Fool is not thinking for himself so much, but dreaming a collective dream.
The Staff and Satchel
The Emerald Tolemac Fool is wearing brown pants, a white shirt, and a tan jacket. In his right hand he is clutching a powerful-looking long black staff with a satchel hanging on the end. The colour of the handkerchief which holds his belongings is a deep orange, the colour of the 2nd chakra, which aligns with his beginning stature in the journey of spiritual development. His satchel of provisions point back toward what is hidden – for it is not yet ready to be remembered. Yet from that ethereal point lays his true source. This satchel contains the Fool’s early memories of pre-verbal experiences. It has a collection of memories of his life in the spiritual realm. The satchel therefore represents the Fool’s inner knowledge and wisdom, and will be added to as he gains experience in this world. It serves as his storage pack for memories of life on earth and as time goes on contains his skills and talents. This accumulation of knowledge will, in time, form his self- identity and his own unique perspective of the world.
The White Rose
Our young man carries a white rose in his left hand, representing the purity needed in his conscious thoughts to transport him to the completion of his quest. White is the colour of purity and in some traditions the colour of mourning. The fact that he is holding it represents the blank slate mind that he emerges with – beginner’s mind – which is a gift in itself. The association of mourning is a reminder of mortality to the Emerald Tolemac Fool and something to be kept close. Left is also the side of the body associated with death and dying and is an important driving force for the journey.
The Soul and Innocence
The white rose also symbolises his soul or the unconscious self, and also in some cases his innocence. It represents the childlike pure innocence of someone who knows nothing of the journey that he or she is about to embark upon. The Emerald Tolemac Fool is beginning a new road of personal development, but is not aware of the obstacles that still lie ahead. This is a card of wholesomeness where the ego has not yet tainted the mind of the Fool. This card reminds us to appreciate the child within us and to view life through those eyes: with hopeful and excited anticipation and an attitude that is free of fear or doubt.
Blind, beautiful faith is comparable to the beauty of the rose, and its thorns serve as a reminder to listen to reason and practicality. The rose serves as the Fool’s inspiration and the intended outcome. White, the colour of purity, reminds us the experience is worthwhile in every step, indicating it is a desirable objective for which to strive.
His black cap with white feather conveys confidence in his ability to succeed. His yearning for adventure is shown by the white feather. His goals and sources of inspiration are evident in the distance.
The Emerald Tolemac Fool stands with his right foot points to the right, which means that he will allow his UNconscious, intuitive thoughts to guide him on his journey. He’s ready to embark on a journey but appears unsure as to which way to go. Or perhaps he doesn’t much care in which direction his feet will carry him.
An eagle flies before the sun. The eagle is a symbol of wisdom. High flying, the image of flight links the Fool to the character of Icarus, perhaps he too needs to learn humility in order to succeed. The eagle also represents that which meets the soul at death and transcendence when he meets the world and becomes one with all at the completion/beginning of the journey.
Eagles and other falcons are spirit messengers, and the sun represents The Solar Logos, which means the Word of God. The sun is the giver of life to all things. The eagle flying in front of the sun indicates that he is the messenger to bring the Word of God to the young man, for God uses natural means to deliver his messages whether they are by thought, or implicated by the things natural to this world such as the horn. They are revelations from above.
It’s time to develop a stronger spiritual connection when an eagle enters your life. Eagle Spirit assists you in recognising what is crucial. Eagle Spirit empowers you to overcome whatever is holding you back. It’s time to pay close attention to your intuition because it will help you achieve all of your objectives.
The blue planet in the sky next to the sun is Uranus. The planet associated with the Fool tarot card is Uranus. It’s the planet of abrupt, unexpected transformation. If a man or woman is not living in harmony with the cosmos, Uranus can have a profound impact on their lives. It clears the way for the new by removing the old. This is comparable to the Fool, who acts without regard for the past or present but is willing to plunge with hope into the unknowable future. He continues the journey in faith that there is a cosmic plan.
Future-oriented Aquarius is ruled by Uranus. Aquarians have sharp minds and the ability to translate original concepts from the cosmos into tangible things. They are passionate about disobeying authority and conventional wisdom and want for freedom. They enjoy doing this because at their core they are rebellious. In an Aquarius manual, there is no such thing as “right” or “wrong.”
In astrology, Uranus is linked to the 11th house and the Aquarius sign. The eleventh house governs your friends, social groups like clubs and workplace teams, as well as your aspirations. Aquarius is a sign of the independent thinker—someone who forges their own path and places a high value on staying loyal to oneself. Along with radical changes and odd careers, Uranus also governs obstacles and thrills in life.
The Astrological Significance of a New Relationship
How would you interpret the card The Emerald Tolemac Fool if it were to fall in a spread now that you are aware of its astrological significance? Naturally, you will also examine the cards in the surrounding area to determine the direction the person’s new beginning will go, but you will also be able to include all of this fresh Uranian knowledge into your interpretation. If the cards in the immediate vicinity indicate a romantic relationship, it is safe to assume that it will involve someone unusual—possibly not the person’s typical “type” or someone from a very different background. If it is a work-related inquiry, the person may be set on a course that is entirely different from what they have been following up to this point.
The individual will be better able to completely realise the tremendous possibilities that The Fool represents by accepting what is new and different.
The Horn at his Feet
Nothing that arrives before us in our lives is an accident or a coincidence even if it seems out of place, as the horn on the ground before him indicates. We must be aware and take action in order to receive guidance from the unseen world and therefore meet our destiny or solve our current problems.
The horn that lies at his feet is a symbol of plenty, of warning and of communication. This represents tools that The Emerald Tolemac Fool will need in his journey. The horn is connected to the suit of discs in the tarot, which represent the energy of the earth and of wealth. The Fool will need the tool of communication in his journey to transmit his emotions and intent to others he meets on his way. The warning aspect of the horn may speak to hardships ahead, echoed in the tower-like turrets of the castle behind him and the high flight of the eagle.
The emphasis in this card is on the subjective things waiting to guide him. However, in order to use them, he must first connect with them. A symbolic action is required of him. He must literally pick up the horn on the grass in front of him, for the horn symbolises the ability to communicate with the unseen world even as God’s angelic hosts use horns – or trumpets – to communicate with man. That he has things in the natural world to help in this quest to communicate is evident with the dog, eagle, and the sun.
Considering the story of Camelot, it is the innocence and purity of the Fool following his intuition and guided by the unseen world that can bring to fruition to the ideals of truth, justice, freedom, chivalry, and community inspired by the Kingdom of Camelot.
A bright sun shines forth in the sky. The sun represents that which gives life to all beings on earth and allows the fool to be at all. It is a symbol of gregarious outgoingness, which dovetails with the Fool’s happy go lucky demeanour. The sun will also come later in the Major Arcana, and so its appearance foreshadows the hero’s potential to shine forth, although at this point he has barely exited his portal/womb.
At the beginning of the Fool’s journey, he is not aware of what he travels towards, for it is still hidden from him. He has just left his old life behind in order to embark on a new journey. He has stepped through a portal from another dimension, leaving his home behind. Beyond the entrance to the previous dimension is a celestial castle. We are all fallen angels who have landed here from another dimension. We came here to learn and to confront life head on. The portal to another dimension can also be a symbol of the womb, the yin space that we all emerge from.
“In my father’s house there are many rooms.” This bible quote speaks to the many realms of consciousness. In psychological terms, this may represent the questioner’s family background and the reservoir of experience and template from which they can draw to guide them on their path.
Walking out of a celestial world and into the harsher reality of 3D, he’s looking for adventure and a new life. Yet we can see that the world he left behind still lives. In fact, it thrives, as indicated by the lush foliage over the entrance of the doorway to another realm. The Fool has the authority of the ethereal world to move towards what lies in his subconscious mind and to bring to completion his destiny or successful resolution of his current challenge.
There is a white-rose vine surrounding the entrance to the portal. It symbolises the new growth of the Fool’s life, but a vine cannot grow on its own; it needs a structure to support it. The Emerald Tolemac Fool must have a structure of philosophy with which he can make meaning of the world. In the background, tall redwood trees are growing. They symbolise stability, life, and longevity. They are the guides and evidence of what has come before so that the Fool can have hope. If a mere seed can become a tree, what might the Fool develop into?
There is green grass growing beneath his feet. This speaks to springtime and beginnings, a sense of vibrant renewal and general newness … Easter. The grass is dotted with flowers. The flowers are brightly coloured and may represent hopefulness and playfulness. Plants are frequently interpreted metaphorically to represent spiritual growth because they are symbols of growth. They represent life energy that may dwindle but will eventually reappear.
He must be ready to face difficulty and perhaps hardship as he sets forth. He wears sturdy boots for his journey and has a carefree look about him.
The Fool’s Journey
His journey will end successfully since the Fool card’s number is 0, which is representative of the circle of life. This young man will finally realise that what he originally sought was within him from the beginning, but not available without first having searched for it with all his might …. believed with all his heart …. and listened with all his soul while keeping that connection to spirit. This is the journey of the Fool.
His journey will lead him to where his consciousness already is – he must simply follow his intuition and keep listening to the Word of God on his journey and travel with faith in that authority. He has all the resources he needs as indicated by the bundle of provisions he carries.
The Fool card is a symbol of fresh starts, optimism for the future, inexperience, not knowing what to expect, beginner’s luck, improvisation, and faith in the universe.
The Fool is a gullible, “happy go lucky” person who is beginning a new enterprise with complete trust and confidence, and who has not yet met any setbacks in life. A fool is someone who acts impulsively without giving the consequences much thought. The fool card usually makes me think of teenagers who have high serotonin levels and are eager to explore all that life has to offer but who are not yet familiar with the word “failure.”
In a general reading, the Fool card would indicate that you are prepared for a fresh start or that something new in your professional, romantic, or spiritual life is about to occur. Simply go with the flow, take a chance, and trust your gut.
Fool card for Love and Emotions
Are you considering how a potential partner could view you? The Fool is then very impartial, it must be said. This person doesn’t mean to hurt you, but he doesn’t even feel like getting married any time soon. They’re leaving to have fun. However, keep in mind that there is no way to ensure your future with this individual just yet.
In other words, the Fool, the first or last card in the Major Arcana deck, will serve as both the beginning and the end .A fitting phrase for the Fool Tarot concludes by saying that “Every new beginning comes from some previous beginning’s end.
Fool card for Career
When the Fool comes in your career tarot reading, new beginnings are imminent. The Fool can be a welcoming card to start your new journey if you’ve been hoping to start a new professional path, move jobs, earn a promotion, or even start your own business. This card can feel like a new lease of life for old undertakings, even if no significant changes are on the horizon or are planned for you. You can have renewed vigour and start implementing fresh, creative ideas right away. Being acutely aware of the chances available right now is crucial, as is having the confidence to seize them when they arise.
Fool card for Finance
You might be in a phase right now where you’re feeling impulsive and idealistic when it comes to money. Spending right now can only be done in the name of adventure and exploration. Would you like to travel? Or get a fresh talent? You may find it simple to pay for these items right away. The emphasis may be more on feeling expansive and the possibility that you will feel as though you have all you need and don’t need to worry about paying the bills.

Here’s a site where you’ll find my writings.
The Bravehearts of Belgrave High is now published. I have completed the first in a series of novels that I wrote for teens. It is the courageous story of a young girl growing up in a home filled with domestic violence. She also has to endure a school and neighbourhood full of bullies. We read how she maneuvres her way through such a difficult situation. Plus, how she grows because of it, among other themes in the novel.
The desired outcome for young readers is that they will be inspired to treasure their unique differences. If they don’t fit in with the system or with those around them, then they should realise that it’s quite okay not to fit in.
My first novel was written to help raise funds for the private foundation that I established, which might later become a charity. Click here if you’d like to be taken to the site where you can purchase this novel. If you cannot see the site, use a browser other than Chrome.
