This weeks randomly selected card is the Wheel of Fortune, which is a mystical, mysterious card. It speaks of fate, chance and destiny and the weaving of the intricate tapestry of life.Often the twists and turns of fate can feel random and arbitrary. But what if there is inherent meaning in everything, and interconnection between the complex patterns woven into the Universe? Just because these relationships are too tangled to unpick doesn’t mean that they don’t exist and give a deeper meaning to our existence.
Life is a delicate balance and we all experience joy and pain as an integral part of our journey. It is vital to embody the wisdom of the owl and know that all is in constant flux. The trick is to try and achieve balance and inner harmony no matter what is happening in our lives. We judge things as good or bad, but how do we really know until further down the road? The Wheel of Fortune expresses the truth that everything happens for a reason, and there is always a lesson to be learned from our experiences. There is nothing to fear, as depicted by the bright stars twinkling in the night sky. All we can do is embrace it all and use our intuition (symbolised by the owl and the crescent moon) to navigate any stormy waters. It won’t see us go wrong.
The Wheel of Fortune can indicate a ‘stuck’ energy where we need to be reminded that positivity moves us forward whereas negativity keeps us tangled and stuck. We must keep in mind when we are feeling trapped and stuck that the wheel is constantly turning. Change is always happening and things will get better. It is only a matter of time until the daytime comes back around again as everything is cyclical.
The archetype of this card puts me in mind of the quotation
“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
