Every Tuesday, my friend Joy Andreason provides "Tarot Tuesday" to give you some insight into tarot
cards. Today's card is the Wheel of Fortune Card.
Joy says: There
is change in the air! Be open to your life changing for the better! Be
thankful for your many blessings and cherish those you love. The only
thing that is assured is that nothing ever stays the same.
MEANING OF THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE CARD: (Thanks to biddytarot.com)
Upright: Good luck, karma, life cycles, destiny, a turning point
Reversed: Bad luck, resistance to change, breaking cycles
ABOUT THE CARD:
The Wheel of Fortune card shows a giant wheel, with three figures on the outer edges. Four Hebrew letters – YHVH (Yod Heh Vau Heh), the unpronounceable name of God – are inscribed on the wheel’s face. There are also the letters TORA, thought to be a version of the word Torah, meaning ‘law’, or TAROT, or even ROTA (Latin for ‘wheel’). The middle wheel has the alchemical symbols for mercury, sulphur, water and salt – the building blocks of life and the four elements – and represents formative power.
On the outer circle is a snake, the Egyptian god Typhon (the god of evil), descending on the left side. The snake also represents the life force plunging into the material world. On the right side rises the Anubis, the Egyptian God of the dead who welcomes souls to the underworld. And on top of the wheel sits the Sphinx, representing knowledge and strength.
In the corners of the Wheel of Fortune card are four winged creatures, each associated with the four fixed signs of the Zodiac: the angel is Aquarius, the eagle is Scorpio, the lion is Leo, and the bull is Taurus. Their wings signify stability amidst movement and change, and each holds the Torah, representing wisdom.
NOTE: The Tarot card meaning description is based on the Rider Waite cards.
