I am the Wheel of Fortune.

Today's Card of the Day was selected by a online test which asks you several multiple choice questions and reveals what Major Arcana card you are. I was told:

You are The Wheel of Fortune

Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of intoxication with success
The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

The Wheel of Fortune is a card of ups and downs. It represents the never ending Cycle of Life. No matter what happens in our lives - birth, death, divorce, job loss - the Wheel keeps revolving without care or concern for how it affects us.

Many look at the Wheel of Fortune as a portent of good luck. Some see it as a sign of a gamble, the wheel looking like a roulette wheel. Some see it as fate. I believe The Wheel shows us patterns. Not only the cause and effect of our choices and decisions, but universal patterns in life. The "secrets of the universe" are revealed by The Wheel. 

The Wheel follows The Hermit in The Fool's Journey. We seek higher knowledge with The Hermit and find those answers in The Wheel. We learn that our actions have consequences. That, as Newton postulated, "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." I believe that is not only Newton's Third Law of Motion, but encompasses all energy. All thoughts, words, feelings and actions have a cause and effect, an equal and opposite reaction.

After The Wheel we are asked to accept that simple truth by Justice. We are asked to accept that we control the vertical and we control the horizontal of our lives. There is no fate, except the fate we assign.

Today's card, in fact MY card (according to the online test) is The Wheel of Fortune. It came to remind me that no one else can make my business and myself a success but me. That luck comes to those who create it.
