The Wheel of Fortune card is not an easy card to wrap one’s head around. One may say that the card is too busy and distracting. Nevertheless, everything on the card is there for a reason, but it makes it easier if you have a place to start.
The overall meaning of the Wheel of Fortune or as some call it, the Wheel of Life, is that its cyclical and always turning. As the Fool moves along through life, encounters with different people and situations will occur.
As the Fool, we are masters of our own destiny, but we are still bound by life and it’s terms. This is the evolution of life and the luck of the draw. We can’t control how people act or situations that may arise, but we can learn from them as well as step back and see the bigger picture.
As an example, let me tell you about one of my Wheel of Life moments. In the early 2000s, I was a temp at a very well known marketing agency.
This marketing agency had several floors and each floor had a reception area. I was one of the receptionists on a particular floor. Lots of mail and couriers with packages came through. Which shouldn’t be surprising because it is a marketing agency after all.
I was a temp at this firm for one whole month. It was awful and boring. This was the Wheel of Life moment I found myself in. This was the job I was in until THE job came along.
My Wheel of Life moment taught me something. I realized that being a receptionist was not for me. Now, there are people that dream of being a receptionist, and they are great at it. We need those people, and we need them in those jobs. Being a receptionist was not a talent or passion of mine.
Do I regret it? Absolutely not. I don’t regret any decision or place I have found myself in the Wheel of Life because all things happen for a reason. I learned from them, and they helped shape me into the man I am today.
So tell me, what was one of your Wheel of Life moments?
