Fabulous question was posed by my friend, Donnaleigh. Ask your deck “Why do I work with tarot?” … and draw a card to see what tarot sees in that question for you…
The above was my answer.
Spirit card looks like a Cap rising, Virgo Sun all right, worrying all over. sheesh.
How fun the card I drew, I love it !
Wheel ! of. Fortune !
Big bucks, NO Whammies !
(Yes, I know that’s a different game show, but you get the idea.)
I always say reading tarot is like dialing in for the cosmic time and temperature.
I would call time & temp all the time when I was younger, that and Dial-a-story…
Temperature changes are 3rd house (natural Gemini house) where my chart ruler, Saturn Rx lives. Mars rules HIGH temps and Saturn rules LOW temps. In my chart they are trine one another, (Saturn Rx 3rd – Mars 11) so ya know, a girl obviously needs to know the time and temp – frequently. lol
Wheel of Fortune is a card of polarities and changes too.
Good times, bad times and all the shades of daylight and dark in-between.
It speaks of the natal wheel as well, birth and transits, progressions, etc…at this stage we are 1/2 way through the major arcana.
The fool has acquired knowledge of all the cards before and is mutating, evolving and seeking elevation in the world (21, The World, the last Major).
The Wheel points to the fickle finger of fate, Lady Luck or Lord of Loss – it represents the decay and eventual descent of the body – in delicate balance with – the growth and rising of the spirit.
The only constant is change.
… What card will you pull from your deck… ? Do tell !
