The Red Joker is a combination of the energies of hearts and diamonds, where emotions and practicality fight for balance. Stronger than either of the red Jokers, more emotional than the black Jokers, don’t wait too long when you see it.
As people, Jokers often represent young, energetic people who are at the very beginning of their personal journey. They are still developing a sense of self but they approach new challenges with fervent energy and excitement. Jokers look forward to the opportunity of learning and practicing new skills. On a physical level, Jokers can represent young children through to young adults. However, Jokers can also represent those who are young at heart or who are discovering a new aspect of themselves. As events, Jokers are often seen as messengers and come to you with a new opportunity or an invitation. Jokers encourage you to go for it and give you the green light for a new project or initiative. Jokers symbolize a new stage in life.

In the former case, let The Red Joker be a reminder that you can emerge victorious as long as you can gather the courage to do so. In the latter, your impulses may be another factor that you must rein in. To see The Red Joker in reverse may suggest that you need to come to terms with the fact that you cannot always be in control.
