i would normally interpret each card separately, but i think the parallels (or maybe contrasts would be a better word?) these two cards have are super interesting. the most obvious parallel first off is the looks of the cards themselves:
in my deck, both cards show a person standing straight and centered in the middle of the card for the most part, with the hermit consisting of mostly blues and blacks, and showing the moon. whereas the fool is a very bright, very orange card with a picture of the sun shown in it. these images line up pretty well with the meanings the cards have in the reading
each card seems to show the relationship from a different viewpoint: the hermit is how seto sees it (dark, kind of mysterious), and the fool is how jou sees it (bright, sunny, warm). seto seems to be a bit wary in the beginning, as if he doesn’t quite know what to make of his feelings/the relationship. he’s kind of used to being alone and trying to open up more to jou, beginning to value his opinion and advice on things. jou is much more straight-forward and optimistic, seeing nothing but good things coming from the relationship and excited to be a part of it
These cards are the Dark Magician Girls of the tarot deck. I had to get them back from Yugi. He “borrowed” them.
The Past: The Queen of Swords - An independent lady, she is intelligent, rational and tends to be cool in a crisis - just like the Dark Magician Girl! Graceful, possibly with a fondness for music and dancing. She is very alert to undercurrents and should not be underestimated. Perhaps you knew her in a former life…
The Present: The Moon - Take care, for all is not as it seems. You need to use your intuition to deal with a deceptive situation. The path you are on is difficult and may cause fear, but continue along it, even if you are beset by doubts, because all will eventually turn out well. For example, if the person you can’t admit you are in love with decides to pass on into the afterlife, invent a new fancy way to play card games so you can go to the beyond to “duel” him thoroughly. This card is favorable if you are involved in a clandestine love affair.
The Future: The Empress - This card points to abundance, material and domestic comfort, security and protection. It is obviously a maternal card so may indicate childbirth, motherhood, nurturing, reassurance and a firm foundation for future progress. This reminds me, I need to write a new letter to my Mum who is up in Heaven…
