Theme Of The Week
X • The Wheel
Key words: Change, Fortune, Destiny, Cycle, Fate, Movement, Expansion, Luck, Chance
For every action in life there is a reaction, and while we may sow many of the seeds that create our own destinies, the wheel of fortune throws an element of serendipity into the mix. As the wheel turns it is a reminder that change is inevitable.
The wheel is usually a harbinger of sudden change, a twist of fate or an unexpected opportunity. Ruled by the planet Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, the wheel serves both as a reminder that everything changes.
While we may exert some control over our fate, it’s not wise to rule out the goddess Fortuna and her wheel of fate.
Approach To The Week
King • Pentacles
Key words: Business Leader, Financial Advisor, Financial Security, Status
Court cards can represent actual people in our lives or an expression of the energy of that suit. Kings are the ruling expression of the suit; they have mastered themselves and can help others do so as well.
The king of pentacles sits comfortably on his throne even though it appears to be high in a tree. He has a knack with money in particular and has learned to manage his resources so well that everything that he touches seems to thrive.
He may lend you money but he is more likely to advise you on how to create your own wealth.
Look for financial opportunities or material success with the king of pentacles.
Challenge Of The Week
I • Wands
Key words: Inspiration, New Ideas, Creative Force, Initiative
Two hands open to the energy of an elaborately decorated wand signifying the potential to do or create something new. A flame rises from the open end of the wand. This suit is about passion and energy and lighting a fire to get things done.
This card gives a thumbs-up to queries about prospective projects and goals.
How The Cards Come Together
This week’s reading comes to us full of promise. Times have been difficult financially but The Wheel indicates that our lives will definitely improve if we recognize opportunities when we see them.
Our approach to this should be cautious, being careful with our finances. However, if you budget, set clear boundaries and follow them, the opportunity should work out for you.
The challenge being that you need to convince yourself to act and take a chance on the opportunity itself. It’s a great time to reach out and take it!
