Every Tuesday I select one card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?
Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Wednesday (tomorrow) to see what cards come up.
Today I pulled a card from one of my favorite tarot decks, The Gilded Tarot, which is the artwork you see frequently on the Wild Women blog. I also use this deck when I am doing readings for people. Something about this artwork speaks to me and to my intuitive voice.
Today's card is the Wheel of Fortune, which is a Major Arcana card (indicates more global, spiritual life lessons as opposed to the situational lessons of the Minor Arcana cards).
Being the tenth card, the Wheel of Fortune carries some of the numerological meanings of a ten. Tens indicate a transition from one cycle to the next. It is a feeling of closure AND a feeling of looking forward to new beginnings.
The Wheel of Fortune indicates a pausing point where you have noticed that life has its ups and downs. It symbolizes a change for the better, the upside of a cycle, good luck and opportunity. It has with it a feeling of destiny and karma. Again..."what comes around, goes around," but not in a good deed/bad deed sort of way, but referring more to the cyclical nature of life.
When you observe the patterns of your life and the cycles you go through -- monthly, yearly or possibly in various areas of your life (relationships, education, spirituality, etc.), it helps to know that what's here today is a step towards tomorrow.
Past, present and future are all connected by the tiny word (and the big concept) of NOW. The Wheel of Fortune points to the NOW that is connecting the past to the future, the last cycle to the next one. Something is changing...so hang on!
What cycle is most prevalent in your life? Where do you feel as though you are completing a cycle and are gearing up for a new one?
Having pulled the Wheel of Fortune, look back to a time when you went through this or a similar cycle. What did you learn then that might help you now? How can you best prepare for what's ahead?
And, most importantly, the Wheel of Fortune invites you to be intentional. If you could create the ideal situation, what would it be? Be specific, because in many cases, you get what you ask for.
