Tarot Card of the Week: Wheel of Fortune


Tarot Card of the Week: Feb 8, 2016 – Feb 14, 2016

Wheel of Fortune

This week you may be looking at the ups and downs in your life and thinking about how they’ve led you to where you are today. The Wheel of Fortune card is associated with fate, destiny, “karma,” life cycles and both good and bad luck.

Sometimes we blame ourselves for the down times (assuming we’ve “brought it all on ourselves”) while viewing the up times as outside of our control.

We all experience these up and down cycles — and we all try to maximize the former while minimizing the latter. But the Wheel of Fortune — this version from the beautiful Feng Shui Tarot — tells us that both are necessary and that the good times wouldn’t be good without the frame of reference of the not-so-good times.

The Wheel in this version is balanced between solid ground and turbulent waters. Four colored lanterns — representing the four elements (fire, earth, wind and water) — keep it suspended in midair.

The Wheel of Fortune is tied to “luck” and you may see yours turning this week with a night sky lit up with planets — Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto — and the New Moon in Aquarius, the sign related to sudden change and unexpected events.

The Sabian symbols for the New Moon — at 19° Aquarius 15″ — is “A Big White Dove; A Message Bearer.” This symbol speaks of receiving news and messages from afar. These are apt to be messages of hope, faith, forgiveness and Peace.

There are also 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.

It’s a reminder that all we send out comes back to us in some form or another. It may not be today; it may be months or years or even lifetimes away. The Wheel of Fortune can bring in unique opportunities to clear up past-life karma and rewrite your destiny.

Remember that as one one door closes, another one opens — just as the wheel turns and the seasons change. This week’s transits — and today’s New Moon — speak of finding ways to voice your intentions while at the same time putting disappointments and heartaches behind you.





This week’s card — Wheel of Fortune — comes from the Feng Shui Tarot by Eileen and Peter Paul Connolly.

Eileen is a prolific writer who has penned several other tarot books and has joined forces with her son Peter Paul once before on the Connolly Tarot.

Both are highly recommended.
