The Wheel of Fortune
Tarot Major Arcana
The Major Arcana Tarot cards (also known as the trump cards) form the foundation of the Tarot deck and consists of twenty-one numbered cards and one unnumbered card (the Fool).
They represent a path to spiritual self-awareness and depict the various stages we encounter as we search for greater meaning and understanding. In this way, they hold deeply meaningful lessons.
The Major Arcana Tarot card meanings illustrate the structure of human consciousness and, as such, hold the keys to life lessons passed down through the ages. The imagery of the Major Arcana Tarot cards is filled with wisdom from multiple cultures and esoteric traditions
The Wheel of Fortune
“Today is the first day of the rest of your life. The past is history. The future is mysterious. Then tomorrow—this starts all over again.”
The wheel of fortune symbolizes the cycles of destiny and fate. You may also associate it with the circle of life. The four winged creatures on each corner of the wheel relate to fixed signs of the zodiac wheel. Angel represents Aquarius. Eagle is the representative of Scorpio. Lion associates with Leo, and the bull represents Taurus. Their wings signal stability and acceptance amid change and movement. The wheel of fortune card also relates to the Prague astronomical clock that shows the position of luminaries and zodiac constellations.
Receiving this card in your reading shows that a change is sure to happen in your life, and it depends on how you interpret the concepts of fate and prepare yourself for the change. Destiny does not send any warnings. You have to be considerate about your actions and their effects on your life and the people around you. How fate will affect you depends on your position on the wheel. You can not retain the top or bottom position always. If you are at the top right now, prepare yourself because a little change can throw you off. Similarly, if you are at the bottom, a striking change can bring you to the top.
Fortune favors the brave. Resistance to change could never reward you. Each beginning marks an end, and each end brings hope for a new start. You have to understand the cyclic structure of fate to learn the wisdom, pass the hurdles, and expect big changes in your favor. It does not matter what life throws on you. If you are well-prepared, you can find opportunities even in a crisis. Hope for the best and prepare yourself for the worst. If life is all hues and rainbows for you at the moment, be watchful of the coming storms, one is bound to hit you. Remember, nothing lasts forever. Every path leads to a destination.
