WHEEL of FORTUNE
This week’s Purple Swan Tarot Blog Post card is, the WHEEL of FORTUNE. Synchronicities, Lucky breaks, and knowing that Spirit has your back no matter where you are on the WHEEL of FORTUNE right now. Your destiny may become apparent to you. Lucky coincidences may seem to occur, but it is Spirits guiding hand. In hard times, you will know or be shown the way through. Cycles. Chance.
The WHEEL of FORTUNE has to do with luck, Lady Fortune, Chance, Risk, Fate and cycles. When the WHEEL is in the upright position, luck is with us and things will seem to go our way. Life will seem easier than usual and when we decide to take a chance, we will usually come out being a winner. Lady Fortune is beckoning us to throw the dice, spin the wheel, take a chance, or place a bet. When the wheel is in the upright position, we usually find luck is on our side and we are on top of the world. While you are on top, accept the opportunities that come your way. The thing we must remember though is that this is a wheel. And wheels keep turning and going around and around, never staying in one position for long. You may find yourself on top today, but Lady Fortune is fickle and she can turn on a dime. And you know; what goes up, must come down. So, when you are on top of the wheel, enjoy the ride and take advantage of the time and opportunities at hand, because this time is brief. In a blink of an eye, fortunes change as the wheel begins her descent. And before you know it, you find yourself on the bottom once again where things are tough, nothing seems to go right, you can’t catch a break if it were thrown to you. But again, you must remember… what came down, will inevitably go up again, and before long, you’ll be on top of the world again. “Around and around and around it goes and where it stops nobody knows…” is a phrase most of us have heard a time or two. But in reality, the wheel never stops at all. It just keeps on spinning and spinning in a never ending cycle, with no beginning and no end. We are in a constant state of change. So if you find yourself on top of the world today, know that tomorrow you are already on your way down. So be careful as you flirt with Lady Luck. And if today you find yourself on the bottom and can’t imagine how you’ll get up again. Rest assured, the only way from here is up and things will be getting better soon. Then, before you know it, you’ll be right back on top again. So hang on tight; sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!
