Tarot for the 21st Century!
The Wheel of Fortune represents the endless cycle of life and the ups and downs of life. The Rider/Waite/Smith deck’s Wheel is an exercise in symbolism. The Wheel itself has three circles, symbols and letters. There are creatures adorning the wheel and at each corner of the card. At first glance this card is very difficult to decipher. You have to understand at least part of the symbolism or memorize the meaning of the card, which is what I believe most people do. In Today’s Journey Tarot, this most difficult card has been replaced with Key 10 Life – which is what all the symbolism basically boils down to. The image is a roller coaster. It aptly depicts the ups and downs of life as well as the cyclic nature of our existence. The riders on the roller coaster have no way off the ride so they are destined to continue traveling the loop and dealing with the twists and turns along the way.
