In the midst of energy whirlwinds and lightning bolts turn the ten-spoked Wheel of Fortune. It is a symbol of wholeness, in constant motion yet unchanging in its completeness.
The three figures – sphinx, ape and crocodile – represent three Egyptian gods. The sphinx unifies the four magic virtues; knowledge, will, daring and silence. Wisdom arises through the unification of animal instincts and intuitive intellectual powers. The sword in the sphinx’s paw testifies to incorruptible powers of discrimination and the ability to think clearly. The ape on the left side of the wheel symbolizes flexibility (see the Magus). It looks as if he is the one who keeps the wheel in constant motion.
The crocodile represents the god of creativity (see The Fool). It holds two tools in its hands. In the right is the Egyptian Ankh, symbol of life; every creative act brings something to life. The staff with the hook at the end is a symbol of the possibility we have to forge our own luck.
We can recognize and attract good opportunities and make use of them.
The center of the wheel represents the Sun, origin and unification of all creative energies. It is also a symbol of awareness, realization, enlightenment. In the Sun is the absolute center, the center of the cyclone which, despite the constant movement at the periphery, remains still and unchanged. This is the inner seed, the witness who remains untouched by the ups and downs of duality; joy and sadness, hope and fear.
But right now we are observing the periphery of the wheel. We are filled with joy by the breakthrough into clarity, the great fortune this very moment brings us. Life holds out unexpected gifts and possibilities to us. Now we need watchful eyes in order in order to perceive the gifts and possibilities offered to us.
Indications: If no miracles are happening, something is wrong! You
stand before the possibility of a great breakthrough! Use the moment!
Questions: Are you really ready for the great fortune? What’s still standing
in the way?
Suggestion: Write down, or list to a trusted person what Fortune means to you in your present situation. Then make a new list of everything which prevents your experiencing Fortune right now.
Affirmation: I am now ready for the miracle of my life
