10-Destiny – Reversed Salem Deck

Your Chosen Card – Destiny Reversed Salem Deck

When reversed, the Wheel of Fortune cautions that your good luck can’t last forever. What goes up must come down. Each season gives way to the next, and you need to be prepared for the possibility of a rainy day. Although our fate is largely what we make it, unexpected things can happen that are outside of our control. Keep in mind the words of Brutus:

Keywords Reversed: Bad luck, a downward cycle, misfortune, a turn for the worse, fateful events, impermanence, procrastination, not seizing the moment, having no choice but to submit, feeling powerless to affect circumstances, the fickle finger of fate.

Key X: The Wheel of Fortune (Dame Fortune)
Myths/Archetypes: Lady Luck. Dame Fortune. The three Norns. The Fates of Greek mythology. The Soothsayer. The fickle finger of fate.
Astrology: Jupiter, the greater benefic. (Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Pisces)
Numerology: 1 (Magician) = 1 + 0 (Wheel of Fortune) = 1 + 9 (The Sun)

Element: Fire

When Destiny is reversed you can pretty much take it that life is going well but that’s when life takes us by surprise.  If Destiny is unclear it may help to choose a card from the Major Arcana to provide more insight into what it is Destiny is trying to tell you.  If you had a particular issue in  mind, or want to seek clarification on something else, you can also choose again to get more guidance.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: When using specific decks, however, such as the Crowley Thoth or the Liber T Tarot of Stars Eternal deck, it is best to follow the instructions of deck’s author in the Little White Book (LWB) that accompanies the deck. For example, the Golden Dawn Tarot deck by Robert Wang avoids the name ‘Knight’ entirely and uses the following designations for the court cards: Princess, Prince (in a chariot), Queen, and King (on horseback).

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: Fact 5: In the 1400s, the original tarot decks were used for card games in northern Italy. Around this time, the church was preaching against all games of chance (playing cards, dice, board games, and so on) as forms of gambling and frivolous activity that distracted the faithful from the road to salvation. In modern times, Pope Francis (2014) has said: ‘In order to solve their problems many people resort to fortune tellers and tarot cards. But only Jesus saves, and we must bear witness to this! He is the only one.’ 6 Interestingly, the modern use of the tarot for self-exploration is more consistent with the ideas of the Protestant Reformation than with traditional Catholicism because tarot assumes that individuals can discover truth on their own without the intermediary of a hierarchical religious organization.

Tarot for Beginners: However, if the card is reversed, it can point to recklessness, risk-taking, general foolishness, and naivety. Proceed with open-minded caution.
