Tarot Tuesday: Break the Wheel

Sometimes you must go against the wheel’s turn.
Ursula K. Le Guin


The cards were giving me fits this morning.

I had a specific query in mind, but when I drew the Seven of Pentacles Reversed I knew it wasn’t going to be that easy. In that position, the card represents a sort of chaos, that you’re being pulled in different directions and that you’re probably not focusing on the right task.

Story of my life, really.

So, I drew again, reaffirming my question.

I get the Wheel of Fortune.

What did Dio say? “Between the velvet lies there’s a truth that’s hard as steel. The vision never dies — Life’s a never ending wheel.”

Constant state of change is the hallmark of the Wheel of Fortune, and plays into the Seven of Pentacles…

So, I drew again, same question.

Six of Wands Reversed.

There’s a dark side to the interpretation of the card in this position, one that leans toward arrogance and self-importance.

One more draw, to circumvent the trinity, and perhaps codify the message I was receiving.

The Six of Cups Reversed.

Mother —!

Ah, the “you’re living in the past” card.

I debated on whether I should reveal today’s query and have decided to leave it nebulous. The real lesson here is that the cards are truth-tellers, especially when we don’t want them to be.

I knew I should have tossed the runes this morning.
