The Wheel of Fortune can be seen as a fork in the road of the soul’s journey. Here the consequences of our choices come to create fortune or disaster because it’s up to us how we choose to perceive our reality. If we see disaster then we will continue spinning in our illusions. If we choose opportunity and growth, we can sit in the center of the wheel, observe, learn and begin to flow with the cycle of events and take the first step of awakening to our Cosmic Self.
Key words: Karma/ Cycle of life and death/ Creation and destruction/ Cause and effect/ Opportunity
Frank Speck Wheel of Fortune
The theme: change, good and bad. The setting: Humboldt, between the Redwoods and the ocean. The time: twilight, between day and night.
The Wheel symbolizes the chance of perpetual golden opportunities, resting on the resources we have now, with the stumps representing fortunes past that have been made but now have gone.
The creatures aboard the wheel are monochromatic to signify a place between life and death. The rabbit in the ascendency represents good fortune, the snake being jettisoned, bad luck or evil. Atop the Wheel is, in my own personal experience, my most fortunate encounter, my ever-present companion – Bullet, an Italian Greyhound -- majestic, impartial, and a creature capable of unconditional love.
