What This Card Means to Me

We shouldn’t think of the Wheel of Fortune as a roulette, which is a game of chance that we have no control over. In truth the Wheel of Fortune is actually a spinning wheel crafting threads of fate. We control the quality of our thread through our choices. These choices also impact those around us and their threads for better or worse. The Wheel of Fortune will continue to spin back around and force you to reap what ever it is you have sown. You can’t avoid it forever. Therefore, be ever mindful of what you choose.
