Tarot Card ~ November 11

Wheel of Fortune

Arthur’s Dream

Fortune Cookie: You’re finally in a position to really be on top of the world, in the way you have wanted to be.  So let yourself believe in that! 


Not a bad card for a November day. Really! Maybe we can spend the a little time thinking about it, practicing a little bit and working out how to implement its advice over what’s left of this week. Or the rest of our lives.  Whichever. 

In pretty much any reading, Wheel of Fortune augurs well, especially for the immediate future.  It usually betokens a happy change of fortune and the beginning of a positive cycle. 

Some readers would say, hop on!  Make the most of your life, NOW!!!!

I agree with those interpretations, but my work with clients has prompted me to put a particular spin on that energy [no pun intended, for a change].  When the Wheel turns up I usually say something like,

Look.  Take a moment.  Pay attention here. 

You’re finally in a position to really be on top of the world, in the way you have wanted to be. 

So first of all, let yourself believe in that.  Let yourself KNOW itDo what you need to do to move beyond doubt.  As I’ve said before, doubt kills more dreams than anything anyone else could possibly do.

There’s a special tweak to this interpretation, though, and, as ever, it takes a bit of explanation. 

The card says that over the years, and perhaps particularly in the recent past, you have learned tough lessons in hard ways. [Whenever I mention this aspect to a client, I almost always hear, “That’s fer dayum sure!”]  

One positive result of that experience is that you’ve developed a refined ability to pick up on and read the subtle vibrations of a situation – of situations in general – to a much greater extent than most people. 

This is a very effective tool for you right now. 

I repeat:

This is a very effective tool for you.

Right now!!!! 

Honoring it, using it will be to your advantage.  Okay?  Advantage?  Yours?  For you? Are we on the same page here?

In fact, giving yourself permission to read and trust and use what you perceive about those subtle vibes (in an intelligent, I’m not gonna overload my mouth and blow my own ass up kinda way) is key to keeping yourself on top of the world. 

It will help you if pay attention to the fact that the Wheel of Fortune is always in spin, and remember you can move along with it at the right moments and in the right rhythm. By doing so you can keep yourself from losing your footing and being dumped into the moat, thereby becoming dragon chow.

As I’ve said before with this card, one of these days I’ll have to do an article listing some of the excuses I’ve heard [and used], for not going with what we KNOW from reading the vibrations of a situation. [Like, “My boyfriend will find me annoying.  He doesn’t like to be contradicted.”  Get a clue, M’Dear.  He already finds you annoying.  And he’s gonna find you annoying ANYWAY, no matter what you do!]  [Or, “She would never do that to me.  She’s my FRIEND.  She TOLD me so!”  Oyeah?  Betcha she has done it.  Already. Twice.  And is coming around for the third time now.  With no remorse in this lifetime.] 

I’m not asking you to be paranoid — just honestly connected to the intuitive insights that come to you AS THEY COME TO YOU!   

There’s an old shamanic saying: “You know what you know.  Do what you know. 

With the Wheel of Fortune as I understand it, I’d tweak that a touch to say, “You know what you know.  Believe in what you know.  Actin a skillful, respectful, savvy way on what you know.”

Make sense?  Please?

Top o’ the world to ya!  Permanently!!

Bright blessings, joy, success and light!

Today’s Weather:  Intermittent embuggerances with variable whompings and mild tuna.  

On This Date: 1918 – World War I: Germany signs an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiègne in France. The war officially ends at 11:00 (the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month) and this is annually honoured with a two-minute silence.

Here in the U.S. it is Veteran’s Day.

Veterans Day

Joseph Ambrose, an 86-year-old World War I veteran, attends the dedication day parade for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1982, holding the flag that covered the casket of his son, who had been killed in the Korean War.

  Thank you to all for your service!

    Yes, a big thank you to those who have served and who are serving.

    What came to my mind when I read your tweak of the “old shamanic saying” was a tiny card that was included with a small “enchanted mirror” I purchased that read “Be what you believe in.”

    Also, a few days ago I saw (perhaps you did as well) a short news video about a young woman who recently guessed the Wheel of Fortune 27 letter phrase with ONE letter…the letter “l”… showing. The phrase was “I’ve got a good feeling about this.” When asked how she guesed it so quickly, she excitedly responded because that was how she was FEELING…she was having a good feeling about the situation.

    One more testimony for the power of positive emotion!

    ~ Blessings, Donna

    Not to mention one more testimony for going with your intuition.

    Yup, that, too!
