The Wheel of Fortune
Ruled By Jupiter
The Wheel of Fortune was a
medieval symbol of the vanity of man and of earthly power.
It is found as far back as Ancient Greece as the spinning
wheel of three goddesses known as the Fates. There may be
a hint of this in 'the sleeping beauty' the story of the
three fairies and the fateful curse, concerning a spinning
wheel, that they impose on an infant Princess.
Traditional sayings associated with the card are concerned
with the beasts and with the wheel itself. The Sphinx at
the top says 'I rule', the serpent 'I have ruled', and the
dog 'I will rule'. The wheel itself is 'Without rule',
since the Power of the Fates exceeded that of the gods
When the wheel is reversed the meaning of the saying 'Life
& is a lottery' becomes very obvious indeed.
Meaning: A 'turn for the better', the end result of Past
actions and the workings of destiny, which no one can
completely understand' An end to current Problems and some
marked strokes of luck'
Reversed Meaning: Bad luck and unpleasant surprises.
Remember that the wheel will turn in your favor
