Life is ever-changing. Sometimes, when things get particularly hectic (or conversely, overly slow) it feels as if we’ve lost control… if we ever had it in the first place! When you’re faced with this kind of situation, it’s a great time to turn to the Tarot or at least take a lesson from its teachings. In this case in particular, we turn to card 10, The Wheel of Fortune.
Whether you believe in fate or destiny, there is no questioning that a good portion of life is left up to chance. Inevitably, situations arise and things happen that change the way we experience life – in thought, in action or in our fundamental states of being. The Wheel of Fortune represents this phenomena. But more importantly, it reminds us that everything has a season.
Spring brings with it new beginnings, while Summer brings growth and Autumn inspires reflection and maturity with Winter bringing rest and release. Though this cycle does indeed correspond with the human life cycle, it also repeats and repeats over and over again in smaller ways throughout our lives. Every endeavor you begin (from relationships to jobs to hobbies and activities) will eventually go through this cycle – some more rapidly than others. And when things feel overwhelming or life gets you down, there is nothing more important that you can remember. It may be sad sometimes, you may feel lousy others, but without the negative there can be no positive.
Now of course, you can choose to stay in one cycle for too long. And when this card comes inversely it indicates being stuck in the negative aspects of a situation. Never do we want to hold too tightly to anything – even our beliefs, as sometimes we can halt our own progress along the way.
Does that mean we should give up our morals or give in to others desires when they’re not suited to us? Of course not! It simply indicates that one of the most valuable things we can do in this turn on earth is to be open. Open to changes, open to possibilities, open to the beginnings of new cycles and the developments (including the eventual ending) of those which are already set into motion.
Being open leaves way for chance, or fate, or destiny – whatever you want to call it. Clinging desperately (to a person, situation or emotion) closes the doors. While The Wheel of Fortune outwardly indicates fate, chance or luck, it also signifies that as always, it’s time to have faith. Things will ultimately change for the better.
