Even though every day might look the same, to the matter of fact this is not actually true, there is a change in every little details of our daily existence. We have ups and down, good moments and bad moments, positive and negative experiences and so on.

Letters: at the center of the wheel of fortune tarot card we see a wheel with 4 letters in English T, A, R, O. this has a double meaning, it can be a short of the word “tarot” but it also can be read as “tora”. The word “Torah” represents the part in the Hebrew bible where all the rules of god are written, and according to the common believe they should be followed. These letters also appears on the high priestess tarot card as a hidden scroll and have the same meaning: the rules of the world according to god.

The letters can also be read as “rota”, in ancient Latin language it means wheel. 

In addition there are 4 letters in Hebrew on the wheel. The letters are: Yod, Heh, Vav and Heh. When combined together they assembly the name of god: “Jehovah”, according to the religious scriptures, the name is so sacred, that it is forbidden to pronounce the deity’s name.  

Summing up the meanings of the letters and the words inside the wheel of fortune, we can conclude that during our life we have scriptures (Torah), destiny (Tarot), the way(Rota) and spiritual guidance(Jehovah).

Furthermore number 4 represents the four elements: air, fire, earth and water and also the four direction: west, east, north and south. Hence god and spiritual beings encompass every place and every component here on earth. No one can get away of their influence or presence.

Chemical symbols: the wheel of fortune is divided into four sections, each one of them has a unique symbol. These symbols represent chemical materials which are: salt, water, sulfur and mercury. They are all related to a certain kind of energy. Sulfur meaning is fire and the essence of life, salt meaning is death and mystery, mercury means balance and knowledge, water is the energy of life meaning birth.

In life there are many challenges we need to conquer. The chemical symbols are energies we need to use if we want to be successful, and even more important, to reach to a higher spiritual level.     

Typhoon: on the left side of the wheel of fortune tarot card there is an image of a snake with two heads. This is not the serpent from the Garden of Eden as featured in the lovers tarot card. This is the evil deity from the Greek mythology, he is the father of all bad monsters. Typhoon in going down from the wheel so he denotes very bad luck. However it has a positive meaning as well. Because the snake shed its skin there is a chance to turn around the negative energy into positive energy. This can be done only by making a change and in order to do so we need to let go of the past (death and end) and move on (birth and beginning).

Anubis: at the right side of the wheel of fortune tarot card we see another figure. An orange colored man with a dog face and two horns. This is the image of Anubis the god of death from the Egyptian mythology. Although he is looking like a demon his intentions are good. His duty was to guide the lost souls in the afterlife, to lead them to the right place they should be after they died. He also guarded the Egyptian tombs, protecting them from pirates who tried to steal the valuable artifacts. In the image he is going up, symbolizing good luck.

Sphinx: the chariot tarot card also featured sphinx figures but in that card they are not working together, each one of them has a different color, one is black and one is white. But here at the wheel of fortune tarot card the head of the sphinx has both colors of black and white. This means a perfect balance which we all strive.

The sphinx is at the top of the wheel of fortune and holding a sword. He tells us to be wise and to make a decision. At first glimpse we can’t see him because his body is royal blue as the sky in the background. He is hiding a little bit and emphasizes that often times we don’t see who is rolling the wheel and to which direction. We need to take a close look at the situation and then to decide. 

Four living creatures of Ezekiel: continuing to describe the wheel of fortune tarot card, we encounter again the number 4. At every corner of the tarot card there is a creature which related to prophet Ezekiel. They have wings as they are angels that connected directly to god. Each angel has a unique incandescent figure: eagle, lion, ox and human. First and foremost they symbolize the zodiac signs: Scorpion, Leo, Taurus and Aquarius. Secondly they teach us about the four cardinal virtues we have to seek in life: justice, prudence, fortitude and endurance.   

Clouds: every one of Ezekiel’s creature is surrounded by a grey cloud. They symbolize the winter but more important that the creatures are not in the right place. They should be here on earth and not up in the sky. They symbolize earthly elements and not spiritual elements. They are all reading books because they need to learn their duty: water – emotions, earth – stability, air – logic and fire – action.
