Today’s card is from the The Waite-Colman Smith Deck

Wheel of Fortune – X

Wheel of Fortune

I swear to you that I picked this card from a brand new deck!


Modeled after the wheel of the goddess Fortuna, an engraved wheel sits in a blue sky with gray clouds in each corner. The letters on the wheel  “T-A-R-O” and  Hebrew letters ” י-ה-ו-ה,”  (usually transliterated as YHWH (Yahweh)). The symbols on the wheel represent the four elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The four winged creatures in the corners of the card, represent the symbols of the fixed signs of the Zodiac: Leo, Taurus, Aquarius and Scorpio (The Lion, the Ox, the Man and the Eagle). Each creature peruses an open book. A representation of the god the snake-like Typhon descends on the left side and Anubis is seen rising with the wheel on the right. Above the wheel sits a Sphinx-like half-human attired in an Egyptian-style headdress.

This is the card of roller coaster transformation and reversal of luck.  Prepare to have your world rocked – hard. You can’t control what’s happening. So don’t try to fight it. Something completely random has happened and the Spinning Plate  music has started.  What did I tell you? Pay attention! Don’t try to fight or control it.

You can’t. 

You can control how you respond to the madness. When things seem to be spinning out of control, keep your seat belt on and pop some Divine Gravol. Use your head to make the best decisions. Yeah, “find your center’ seems kind of cliché, but it fits here. The center of the wheel  has more stability that the edge. You’re still moving… but the ride’s a bit smoother. Find the place where you can plant your feet or hold on and just go with it.

When the monkeys escape in the circus? Its better to have bananas than a whip to get things back in order. And when things are back in place? When the merry-go-round stops? You’ll find that you’re not Monkey Wrangler #32, anymore. You’re the Ringleader.

Looks like we’re still on the roller coaster! You’re gonna be a winner – if you keep your head, your cool and your lunch down :-)
