Description

A golden Tibetan Wheel of Fortune is here surrounded by an Ouroborus snake, an hour glass placed in the middle, sand still running through from one side to the other.

Symbolism

The Tibetan Wheel of Good Fortune symbolizes the turning of the wheel of Buddha's doctrine and teachings, it symbolizes the source of wealth, love, liberation and good fortune, and the realization of the these, a symbol of the responsibility we must assume in this life in order to achieve our goals so that we may fulfill the potential of the opportunities which the universe so generously bestows upon us.

The Ouroboros is really a symbol of the eternal unity of all things, the cycle of birth and death. Its symbolic connotation from this owes to the returning cyclical nature of the seasons; disintegration and re-integration; truth and cognition complete; the potential before the spark of creation, the idea of the beginning and the end as being a continuous unending cycle. Where ever the wheel finds us, up or down, always in motion, we have the power to take that destiny into our own hands.

The hour glass is a classic symbol of Time. It reminds us that in this realm of our physical world, time is a measured commodity, for as long as we are here on this earth, the hours, minutes and seconds of our lives will sip through this glass and every second we have the ability to make our choices, listen to the universe and receive the gifts that are waiting to be apprehended. A sudden spark of good fortune can only be appreciated when you are at the right place at the right time. Good luck may provide us with unexpected opportunities but one has to be aware and alert in order to recognize and utilize it to its fullest potential. Some say it's all in the timing, but without ample opportunity and the willingness to take action; great prospects may pass you by. However, sometimes a split second can make all the difference….

Card Meaning

Good luck and fortune, unexpected twist and turns of events, fateful encounters. One door closes, another one opens.

Artistic Media
