THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE
The Wheel of Fortune's presence in a reading reminds us that there is a POWERFUL LIFE FORCE outside of us all. This energy, or Cosmic Law, is always looking to expand + evolve. When we respect the natural rhythms occurring around us, and deeply bow to this truth, this energy will peacefully flow through us. When we try to persevere, control, distort, or even ignore these natural rhythms, this life-force will be blocked or cut-off.
CHAKRA is the Sanskrit word for "spinning wheel." Just as we see this cosmic energy outside of us, we too hold these sacred elements within. If we learn to listen carefully to our internal elements, and trust in their powerful wisdom, this life force will guides us because IT IS US.
The WHEEL OF FORTUNE, like a vision in the sky, offers us a clue to the happiness + success we humans seek. She teaches us that true fortune isn't determined by how lucky we are, how hard we work, or even how much we pray. True FORTUNE is obtained by how lovingly present we can be with this cosmic intelligence. When we are in line and have quieted to feel her presence within + without, this is when we PROSPER.
Wheel of Fortune paired w/ stone inscribed w/ "believe." You may be floating through the void this week. As the wheel of the year turns, and the autumn season fully shifts, thoughts of what's to come may surface. If it feels out-of-control or you're unsure, even lost, know it's totally okay and aligned w/ this time of year. Come back to your breath. Bring the focus to the axle of the wheel, your heart. This is your safe place. Remind yourself, "I am right where I am meant to be." When you fully trust + believe in this sacred Truth, you flow with ease + grace, opening you up to the Universe's infinite flow of abundance.
Wheel of Fortune Rx paired w/ Red Jasper. You may notice the sun setting earlier. The hot days of August are here! Earth is thirsty + dry. It’s important for you to observe the sacred dialogue occurring this time of year. Notice how everything moves in cycles. Remind yourself of the rich reds + golden coppers of autumn. Sense the juicy apples ripening. Feel the birds shifting their direction. This New Moon isn’t so much about making vibrant Leo plans, but rather grounding your energy. You may have experienced quite a bit of movement in the previous months. Give yourself permission to relax. Something huge is being set in motion for you. If you trust the invitation to find joy in the present moment that is nature, rest assured you'll be rewarded with a beautiful harvest come autumn.
Jupiter is the planet of EXPANSION + FORTUNE. In order to reap the benefits + fully open ourselves up to the INFINITE FLOW OF OPPORTUNITY + ABUNDANCE that Jupiter offers, we are asked to master the energy of the astrological sign it currently resides in. Right now JUPITER rests in HUMBLE, DETAIL ORIENTED VIRGO.
JUPT ENTERED VIRGO - August '15
JUPT RTGRD // January - May '16
JUPT DIRECT // May - September '16
Let's drop what we KNOW about ASTROLOGY + take a look at the cards, + see what inspiration they may offer into further understanding our current state of RECEIVING.
In the tarot, Jupiter is represented by THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE; Virgo is represented by the QUEEN OF PENTACLES.
The WHEEL OF FORTUNE teaches us that by staying PRESENT, at the AXLE OF THE WHEEL, we can fully EVOLVE + OPEN ourselves up to FORTUNE. The QUEEN OF PENTACLES brings together WATER + EARTH, inviting us to NURTURE our body + environment.
This combo asks us to evaluate our relationship to the PHYSICAL WORLD. Since August of 2015, in what ways have you fine-tuned details towards your HEALTH? How have you been NURTURING your BODY + ENVIRONMENT?
Look back at January 7 - May 9, 2016 (JUPITER RTRGRD). This is a time we may have been pulled back into old cycles. What old beliefs + outdated habits may have resurfaced during this time?
Last week, Jupiter went back direct. This last third of Jupiter's journey in Virgo goes until the beginning of September + asks us to step it up to Virgo's highest attributes.
If you're hearing little whispers to better your health + nurture your body, answer the call. This will open you up to NEW OPPORTUNITIES to FULLY RECEIVE + EXPAND into the most aligned you.
It's been pretty wild to look at my sobriety journey through this lens, especially the retrograde period, + gives me motivation to keep at it. How does this Queen of Pentacles/Virgo energy line up with your journey? I'd love to hear. ✨😊 Also, note: pictured here is a shot from the RETROGRADE MEDITATION I did a few weeks ago, which is why the cards are in reverse. Just flip them upright for DIRECT
