Year Wheel, Spirit Wheel, Sacred Hoop, Medicine Wheel, all the same and all very different. Same in that each begins with the compass points, aids in something, and has deep meaning; different in focus of personal or group use. But this is the basic stone wheel, 4 points, 2 or 3 stones between each point, and the cross stones or roads on the inside.
This card just happens to come up on the day I'm assembling all my thoughts, materials, and notes re: my own Wheel; that's what the cards do. I read back through my last ten posts yesterday and it made the hair rise on my neck they were so pertinent to what is going on in my life. Do I make the cards, or do the cards make me?
It was prettily devised of Aesop, 'The fly sat upon the axle-tree of the chariot wheel and said, "What a dust do I raise" '. ~ Francis Bacon Sr. 1561-1626
Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
