Tarot School- Wheel of Fortune - X

When life puts us in unexpected situations, we often ask the question whether all these events are the result of fate or have happened accidentally?

 

The message of the Wheel of Fortune, the tenth card of the Tarot, is that nothing lasts forever, each cycle ends at a certain time and then a new cycle will start.

Notice the outline of the wheel is shown with Roman letters! First, the word ROTA appears, which means wheel or cycle. Secondly you can read the word TORA, which means the knowledge of divine things, and which can also mean oracle, or prophecy, or the messenger who can reveal for us the hidden knowledge and the goal of the divine. We can put together the letters and get TAO, the teaching of the truth, showing the way that can lead us to enlightenment. Or even the word TAR which is the shortened version of Thoth, who was an important Egyptian god and arbitrator, and the name of ATOR which is the shortened version of the name of Hathor, the god of Nature.

Tarot School- Wheel of Fortune - X

Finally, of course we can put together the word TAROT. Tarot means oracle and also messenger, the one who brings knowledge to us. The Hebrew letters at the edge – YOD, HE, WAW, HE (YHWH) - spell the name of God (‘Yahweh’), whose other name is Tetragrammaton (literally ‘having four letters’). This suggests that the power that moves the wheel, and also leads us through successful and unsuccessful challenges, is above us and comes from a higher dimension.

The wheel represents the cycles of the ‘law of rotation’. We are on the top when we have the greatest fortune, it is then followed by descending. While we are at the bottom we wish to be on the top again. We are part of a constant cycle. On one hand we are part of this as an individual and on the other hand we are part of this as being a section of the universe that is under constant change. Childhood is followed by adulthood, as summer is followed by spring.

The symbols of the alchemical elements – Mercury, Salt and Water- can be found in the middle of the circle, which represent the esoteric goals. The meaning of the eight branches of the Wheel of Fortune is that what is on the top is at the bottom, and what is at the bottom is at the top also (‘as above, so below’). The snake (Typhon) located on the left hand side symbolises that we should “hang on tightly” because our life can turn upside down from one minute to the next, just like the ferris wheel in the amusement park. Jackal-headed Anubis located on the right side is the companion of underworld spirits looks at the letter YOD, which means that the hand of God is everywhere, even in the darkest corners of the world. The four Archangels, who are sitting on the clouds in the four corners also suggest that they symbolise the eternal truth and indisputable facts. The Sphinx at the top of the wheel is the interviewer, who dominates the entire fragile superstructure, just as the human faced Sphinx also gained the control over the animal like body

The Wheel of Fortune reminds us of the ancient tension that is between free will and fate that has existed since the very beginning of human thought. It reminds us we have a choice, even if we cannot change things. We cannot change the direction of our fate but we can consciously change our reactions and responses to the change. This card predicts a new beginning or a new phase of our life. It is your decision whether this new phase will be good or bad. It could also mean the time to make a decision or our inability to influence the happenings around us.

Everybody needs change! It is possible that this is the time to go down in order to go up again. Also it is possible that we have to leave the past behind in order to move ahead in the future.
