What the Wheel of Fortune can teach us about Life
The Wheel of Fortune is a card that represents a change. It also reminds us that we should be happy when fortune happens, but we shouldn’t wait for it and most certainly not expect it. We should just let it happen. It symbolizes the cycle of life in constant motion. As the wheel turns, we can also realise that reality is relative to the point of view. Life is full of unexpected events, and we all go trough a metamorphosis several times during our lives.
Any transition we go through in life, will require adjustments in our way of living and thinking, and the wheel of fortune makes us understand that changes occur in our lives at regular intervals, but most of the time when we are unaware of them. I find this card to be very important to reflect about life itself. We all know that some changes will be a challenge, but our attitude toward this new situation is the most important aspect for a positive outcome. If we approach changes with fear, we will jump at every sound, and soon we’ll become a nervous wreck. However, if we look forward to it as an adventure, we are certain to win in the end, even if we do make some mistakes in the beginning.
As the wheel of fortune represents change, I think that perhaps the most difficult part of any changing involves exploring our inner world. True change cannot just occur on the surface or outside of us. Change means not only understanding who we are, but also why we are who we are. The wheel of fortune presents us with an opportunity to realise that that although maturity does not come with age, it does come with life experiences, which we gain as the years go by.
It’s great card to give us a sense of knowing ourselves and our purpose in life. It is also a card that shows us that nothing lasts forever. Life is in constant motion, and things can change anytime. So, as the wheel of fortune turns, wherever you are on it, remember that this time will pass, the wheel will turn once more, and your present moment will be in the past.
Like the wheel of fortune, life is full of ups and downs, it’s a journey of discovery, we can face situations that will test our strength, but whatever the situation we may be in, it’s not permanent, so we should never lose hope.
