Something interesting happened today that started yesterday. I was taking a couple on a vortex tour near the Sedona Masonic Temple. The wind was blowing so hard we could barely walk without getting blown over. As we were walking to a secret Native American Medicine Wheel to do a ceremony I noticed a tarot card blow toward my feet, so I picked it up. It was the Wheel of Fortune card and was numbered “10”. I am familiar with tarot cards but never really got a good look at them. I thought that was interesting and put it in my pocket. I believe everything happens for a reason and though it would make sense later.
Just the day before, a friend had let me borrow a copy of The Science Behind the Secret DVD, I hadn’t had an opportunity to watch it before today. I am a huge fan of “The Secret” and was excited to see the science behind it. As I was watching it this morning, it went into a little bit about the Freemasons and tarot cards. Okay, I thought that was funny since I had just yesterday found this card on the property of the Masonic Temple. Interestingly, the DVD stopped before the end and I had a thought to get on the computer and look up what the card meant.
The first website I came to explain, “From out of hiding comes the fool, into the sunlight, as if being pulled up from some low, dark point on a wheel. It is time for a change. Staff in hand he heads back out into the world, expecting nothing. But, strangely, things seem to happen to him as the hours go by, good things. Wondering by a water wheel a woman offers him a drink in a golden chalice, and then urges him to keep the cup, just because she likes him; as he wanders by a windmill; he stops to watch a young man swinging a sword; when he expresses his admiration of the weapon, the young man presses it into his hand, insisting that he take it. And finally, when he comes upon a rich merchant sitting in a wagon, right over one of the wheels, the man hands him a bag of money. I like giving away money, explains the merchant, and I decided, just randomly, that the “10Th” person who walked past me today would get this money. You’re the tenth. The fool hardly thought he could be surprised, but he is. It is as if everything good that he ever did in his life is being paid back to him, three-fold. All luck this day is his.” After reading that I felt that it was in alignment with where I was in my life right now, and I looked to see what the date was yesterday when I found the card, it was in fact 10-10-08. Now, I wait to see what happens. I will post it here when I find out. The information about the tarot card was derived from aeclectic.net
12-30-08 Continued… Okay, things are getting very interesting. I found out that in numerology and tarot that for me this year is a “10” and the “Wheel of Fortune” according to my birth date. And next year (2009) will be an “11” meaning “Strength and Lustre.” The name of the book is The Tarot Handbook by Angeles Arrien.
