Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune:

Today’s card — from the Alchemical Tarot — is one of the best modern versions of the Wheel of Fortune that I’ve seen. It’s so rich in symbolism and yet so simplistic, with the “wheel” made of two dragons, each swallowing the other’s tail.

Like the mythical Ouroboros or world serpent (and this version also reminded me of the M.C. Escher’s lithograph “Drawing Hands”), there is no beginning or end, much like the rhythms in our own lives.

Here we see the two dragons — one white with wings and a crown and the other red, scaly and looking a bit more sinister — circling the wheel together. As one goes up the other comes down, repeating that cycle over and over again in an ongoing (and never ending) process.

In the corners of the card are representations of the four cosmogenic elements associated with alchemy, astrology and other timeless traditions. The Wheel just keeps on turning in the middle, reminding us of the ups and downs in our day to day lives.

There are elements of karma and fate associated with this card; yet the Wheel of Fortune refers as much to creating your own destiny — and mastering your own fate — as it does to dealing with karmic repercussions. 

As the Sun conjuncts Jupiter and as Venus trines Neptune today, you may have the impression that your luck is changing for the better. 

You can take advantage of these transits and all of the blessings they bestow by aligning yourself with their respective energies. The Sun conjunct Jupiter combines confidence with optimism, while the Venus trine Neptune aspect brings in elements of faith and hope.

Rather that seeing yourself tied to that karmic wheel today, consider participating in your destiny and working on overcoming the conditioning that’s held you there in the past.
