"The concept of The Wheel Of Fortune pre-dates the tarot by over a thousand years, as it is found in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, and nevertheless has remained almost unchanged throughout the centuries..." -Kim Huggens
The potential to project any number of ideas onto this iconic piece of symbolism is vast...
Does The Wheel represent luck or misfortune? The ups or the downs? Perhaps it is simply a symbol of the unpredictability of life? Or maybe the predictability of it's cycles?
Or all of the above?
For a long time- when I drew The Wheel card, I would see it as a message to center myself, as people who let themselves be carried by the drama & sudden changes of life often feel panicked & out of control, while those who remain at the calm center can endure even the wildest hurricanes.
I still stand by that interpretation, but now I can see it from a more paradoxical view.
Sometimes when our relationships, careers or workout routines start to feel stale, it can be of great benefit to purposely give The Wheel a spin and to step out onto it's edge in the name of going for a little ride, to get some wind in our hair & shake things up a bit.
Life is change.
To stay in flow with that, we must change also...
Did you catch me say in this video, "the trees start falling from the leaves"??? LOL...
Sometimes I say things like that & then carry on, completely unaware of the Through The Looking Glass nature of my tongue... until I get down to editing. And then I'm all like, "Wuuuuut? What did I just say?!"
Y'all must think I'm nuts, and I wouldn't blame you. Sometimes I am..
Hopefully that translates into "Lovable nut."
