Today’s Faerie Tarot card is the Wheel of Fortune. Number ten of the Major Arcana, this card symbolizes the cyclical nature of life and the powers of transformation. The Wheel is the symbol of becoming, of existence and destiny, life and death, the positive and the negative. It symbolizes the chances we take in life without knowing the end result, like spinning the roulette wheel and making a bet on victory. The plants, flowers, and fabric draped across the wheel in this image represent the any gifts one might find on a ‘wish tree’ to determine one’s future. At the ground level, these offerings represent the Earth while the ones aloft as the wheel spins represent the world of the Divine.
The Wheel of Fortune teaches us to master our own destiny. This card signifies chance, a sudden or happy changes, a wealth of possibility, a fast but short evolution (changes), surprises, accomplishments, and overcoming obstacles. It can also indicate a new love, a promotion, profits, and opportunities coming to the fore. Keep an eye out for unpleasant surprises as well, not all aspects of the Wheel are positive and you can avoid being caught off guard by knowing that, any time we spin the Wheel, we take a chance on the unknown. Don’t let unexpected obstacles or negative external attitudes and actions to slow you down. While some delays may pop up, this is only temporary on your journey to success.
Today, may the Wheel pay out your Karmic bet at 3:1, lifting you up as a reward for your hard work and belief in magick!
