Fortune

As a card, Fortune ultimately stands for a new beginning often involving a literal move to a new home or job. The querent might be starting to date again, or trying out some new activity. There’s more than just change here, there is renewal, movement, and the energy of a fresh start.

Far from being sad or frustrated by having to start over, the querent feels remarkably *free*, light hearted and refreshed, as if being given a second chance. They feel young and energized, as excited as a child who has discovered a new toyshop. Who knows what they will find on the shelves?

In addition, they are likely have no idea where they’re going or what they’re going to do. But that doesn’t matter. When Fortune appears the most important thing is to just go out and enjoy the world. To see what there is to see and delight in all of it.

Unfortunately, this childlike state can make one overly optimistic or naive. That business opportunity might not be so surefire or amazing as it seems, and that new lover might not be so flawless.

You might be so busy sightseeing and imagining the possibilities that you completely miss the fact that you’re about to go right off a cliff! The card advises that one listen to that watchful little dog, which might be a concerned friend, a wise tarot reader, someone harassing you from the sidelines, or just your instincts. However exciting new beginnings may be, you still have to watch your step.
