Divinatory meanings of the Wheel of Fortune
Number and Title
11. The Lord of the Forces of Life
A wheel of six shafts, whereon revolve the Triad of Hermanubis, Sphinx and Typhon
In the Etz Chayim, or the Tree of Life, the wheel is placed on the Pillar of Mercy, where it forms the principal column linking Netzach to Chesed, Victory to Mercy. It is the revolution of experience and progress, the steps of the Zodiac, the revolving staircase, held in place by the counter changing influence of Light and Darkness, Time and Eternity – presided over by the Plutonian cynocephaius below, and the Sphinx of Egypt above, the eternal Riddle which can only be solved when we attain liberation.
Golden Dawn Meaning
Good fortune and happiness (within bounds), but sometimes also a species of intoxication with success, if the cards near it bear this out.
Bad luck. Devious ‘friends’. Blocks, obstacles. False dawns.
