Traditionally speaking I've always considered the Fool as someone who wants to dash off towards the horizon and the new adventures waiting there. Maybe this Fool wants to do the same thing, although there is something(could be his lack of experience) holding him back. There are cleary strings attached, so to say, and that leads me to think he's not entirely in control of himself or his own fate.
The clown doll seems very abandoned and the Fool doesn't appear to be paying much attention to it. Could it perhaps be that it represents a part of him that needs to be left behind in order to achieve a greater sense of the freedom that comes with maturity? On the other hand the doll could also be something important that he needs. It's within his reach, but he's not able to see it clearly just yet.
Does anyone have an opinion on the cat? Is it trying to hold him back in a way? Is it trying to chew over/break the strings pinning him down? Or is it simply playing along, a sort of companion?
I'm very new to this, but thought it could be fun to throw in my own two cents. This deck is fantastic in terms of the imagination running wild and it makes the process of interpreting it all the more fun
