Wheel Of Fortune Tarot Card
Key 10 The Wheel of Fortune. The symbol corresponding to this card is the closed hand, indicating mental comprehension. To grasp is to own, and to grasp your place in the world is to grasp what and who you really are. Therefore, you never suffer material deprivation.
The number 10 begins a new cycle, a repetition of the 1. Rotation and cyclicity are the keywords for the Wheel of Fortune. All is in the process of becoming; change is the only constant, so in due time, all things come to pass.
The bull, a lion, an eagle and the man represent the four fixed signs of the zodiac-Taurus, Leo, Scorpio (the eagle is a symbol for the higher side of Scorpio) and Aquarius. The books that they hold represent the wisdom of the ages. They indicate the laws of the
Universe, which are immutable, fixed and cannot be changed. The wavy serpent symbolizes the descent of the life force into manifestation. The jackal-headed hermanubis (an Egyptian god Thoth, also a race of jackal-headed men) shows evolution of form, while the human body and animal head indicate that a man has not evolved beyond the intellectual level. His ears above the horizon of the wheel show that man's interior hearing or intuition allows him to rise to a higher level.
The sphinx depicts the developed human being to which we aspire. The woman's head and breast, coupled with the lion's body, show the soul in the dominion over the body, in perfect harmony, hence exemplifying the union of male and female powers.
Tarot cards came long after the playing cards deck, in 15th century. While playing cards were used in games, Tarot were designed for Psychic readings only. Each Tarot card tells a story about you and your future and past. When you are reading tarot cards, you are connecting with universe on a deep, psychic level, where shadows fall in the dark.
