Wheel of Fortune Description
The Wheel of Fortune depicts a wheel with various symbols and creatures. The wheel represents the ever-changing cycle of life – the flux between good and bad times. Around the wheel are four winged creatures, each reading a book. They symbolize the four fixed signs of the Zodiac – Aquarius, Scorpio, Leo, and Taurus – and the wisdom of these celestial beings.
On the wheel itself, there are different characters and symbols, representing the interplay of different energies (both positive and negative) in our lives. The snake descending on the left side of the Wheel is the Egyptian god Typhon, the god of evil. The Anubis rising on the right side of the Wheel is Hermes, a symbol of wisdom. At the top of the Wheel sits the Sphinx, representing knowledge and strength.
The Wheel of Fortune suggests that life is a series of ups and downs. It represents the unpredictability of life and the way life’s events are interconnected. It might also signify destiny and a turning point in life.
