Wheel Steam

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

If this reading seems more of a ramble of ideas, please bear with me; as of late, I have been pondering this card a great deal and I have many thoughts on its appearance today, and its general presence on our lives.

  • TRUTH #1: The Wheel is always turning.
  • TRUTH #2: The Wheel turns on its own – input is not required.
  • TRUTH #3: There is nothing we can do about Truths 1 & 2.

We often talk about making our own way, affecting change, et cetera, but the truth of the matter is, there are some things beyond us; beyond our knowledge, beyond our reach, beyond our abilities. Simply put, the Universe is chock-full of moving parts and the vast majority of them have absolutely nothing to do with us – we could not matter less. And believe it or not, that is actually a good thing. They are “The Mysteries of The Universe” for a very good reason; not only is our input not required, it is not wanted.

HOWEVER, we are not victims!!! SURF THE WHEEL!!!

We are here today because we had ancestors strong enough, bold enough, or clever enough to live, drive and survive – they surfed The Wheel! No pity-wallowing at the bottom, no laurel-sitting at the top! There was always too much to do in preparation for the next wave. Additionally, they had a secret weapon.

GRATITUDE!!

That’s right! They knew when and how to be grateful!

Last week, I was presented with the card below* and a directive to ponder all the meaning contained in the card. I have been doing exactly as directed – ponder, ponder, ponder.I have come away with a simple message: all things are possible so be both gracious and grateful, win or lose.

“I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round. I really love to watch them roll. No longer riding on the merry go round. I just had to let it go.” John Lennon

*I do not remember where I first saw the Ganesh Wheel (as I have come to call it to myself), nor do I know the deck from which it comes. If you recognize the deck or the original post, please post in Comments for credit where credit is due. Thank you.
