Divinatory meanings of the Fortune Tarot Card

In the Middle Ages Fortune represents the fickleness of life; the richest, most powerful person could find himself in the gutter, penniless and friendless in an instant. Today we see Jupiter in a more optimistic light – things will get better.

The Fortune card has the representation of the wheel with three figures. In Hindu philosophy these are the three gunas, strands of life, Rajas, Tamas and Sattva.

Fortune in the four Elemental positions

The Alchemical Stage that this Key represents is Sublimation. This takes place when matter is placed in a container (usually with a long neck and over heat). Vapour or essence is then extracted from the matter and remains in the top of the neck of the flask for a short time and then descends back down the tube into the Matter again at the bottom of the flask. Now the whole process is a cyclic action which is shown by the Wheel in the Key. Part of the essence is taken from the matter, is strengthened – which is shown by a fusion of the Elements in the form of the Sphinx, then returned to it, making the matter changed in its composition. The ape shown at the bottom of the wheel is the measurer and balancer of the Philosophers Fire, which burns underneath an apparatus in which the substance is being sublimated. This is the key to the Wheel
