The wheel of fortune
The wheel of fortune signifies events seemingly beyond our control, destiny if you want. Are you destined for something which is happening right now, or perhaps about to happen ?
A wheel has the ability to go round and round, symbolising living repeating itself. The four elements are represented around the wheel, giving all the ingredients for the great game to unfold. They surround a fifth element, which, when going deep enough into it is, you !
No matter if you believe in destiny or not, this card shows that important things may be happening in your life, key experiences. Lessons has to be learned, or the same event in another form will crop up again, we are always given another chance, at another turn of the wheel.
I like the term, to turn the wheel of destiny, implying that sometimes when in command we get insights, and gain strength which allows us to forge our life. To follow the heart and at the same time do what is right. At those important times the wheel is moved by us.
The only place of constance in this spinning world is to centre yourself in the middle of the wheel, detaching from all the ups and downs in life.
