From the Robin Wood Tarot

The Fool sets out on his journey, carefree and with infinite possibilities before him. In his bag he carries all he needs and the future is full of promise. He can be seen as a new soul, ready to begin its journey and the Tarot is best learned through the motif of the Fool’s Journey, as a metaphor for the Journey of Life. Appropriately, therefore, he also holds a warning, in the form of his little dog – watch your step!
