For today, my last post in August, we've got the Wheel of Fortune from the Crystal Visions Tarot. In this card we see a blend of the four elements around a wheel with on the inside the astrological signs and the moon and the sun in the middle. The outer rim shows the four elemental symbols. The wheel represents our fortune and changes in luck but also it stands for spiritual growth and changing visions. As we all know life moves in cycles and we keep coming back at the same checkpoints. They can be as natural as the seasons (Yay, Autumn is here!) but also more personal, like the ebb and flow of our spiritual and emotional life. We learn that after the downfall we always will rise up again even stronger, more mature and resilient
The funny thing is this morning I realized a tarot deck is a kind of wheel in itself. Instead of spinning The Wheel and hoping for the jackpot, we shuffle our deck and pull a card. So often we pull the same cards and try to learn something new; add more meaning and /or discover more layers. Just yesterday I've read a post about the wheel at "By the Sycamoretree" and I wondered what more I could possible write about my wheel. But then I came up with this post and so my little tarot wheel turns again.
