The prompt was “Defensive,” and the card, 10. The Wheel of Fortune. This card represents change and the inevitable cycles of life. Really, I think the card is saying that if one recognizes and accepts the nature of life, there is no need to be offended or become defensive when things aren’t going as planned because it will all change again later.
X. Wheel of Fortune
Swept up in life, it’s easy to be overjoyed
when everything goes well,
and to be devastated when things go to hell.
But take a look and you’ll soon see
cycles in eternity.
Life is born in fire and strife,
and lost in peace or trouble rife,
but the only thing we know:
change is certain.
What goes up, must come down,
from deepest shame to great renown,
all we can be certain of
Given time and a little hard work
the hardest trials can be a perk.
Strange, but yes, change.
Change is inevitable.
