The Wizards Tarot: Author, Corrine Kenner and Artist, John Blumen http://wizardstarot.com
The Wheel of Fortune in the Wizards Tarot shows a guidance counselor sitting at her spinning wheel. She is ready to lead her students through the inevitable cycles and changes they will experience. Ghostly spirits from the past and spirits of the future surround the spinner ready to give counsel. On the lower left of the card, a spider weaves her web.
When this card appears, we initially think of good fortune and success. On the cauldron is the glyph of Jupiter, the planet of expansion, being ready to take advantage of opportunity when it knocks at your door.
Taking a closer look, the turning of the wheel can be viewed as a new season or cycle in our life, endings or beginnings. It can also remind us of the Moirai, the Fates of Greek Mythology. They controlled the thread of life, the destiny of all. I think of the Wheel of Fortune as: “There are many spokes on the wheel of life. First, we’re here to explore new possibilities.” Ray Charles
