He himself laughs at everyone and knows that everything is done for the best.
- Meaning 2: “Talent”. The Jester has many abilities and talents, but he does not use them! He creates his own worlds, but also destroys them himself. Much has been given to him by nature.

Unfolding of the creative process, spontaneity, he does not control the process, he lets everything go by itself. Problems arise when such a person works to order, he cannot come to terms with the set framework. For creative people, the presence of the Fool (Fool) Tarot card meaning in the layout is a test of fate.

Frivolity and extravagance.
- Prediction. If the Jester’s card fell out, it is better not to invest money anywhere. The state of affairs is precarious and not serious. There is no certainty in the situation. The Fool’s card shows that a person needs to get distracted from material issues and rest.
