Great fortune in astrology is attributed to the Planet Jupiter and the Thoth Deck Card of Fortune is Jupiter's card. The Hebrew letter correspondence is Kalph, the palm of the hand, which is how fortune is read by palmists. Jupiter, is not just good fortune, rather He is the incalculable factor of Luck, Therefore, the Thoth Deck Key 10-Fortune, is often referred to as "The karmic wheel of Life".
Representing the Universe in its constant state of change, the card of Fortune shows a background of distorted stars, as would be seen from a spinning platform. Some are light, some are dark, all are united in balance, issuing lightnings that blaze through the firmament in blue and violate plumes. Suspended in the midst of this churning, swirling mass, is a ten spoked wheel (representing the 10 Sephiroth of the Tree of Life) and the sphere of Malkuth (Kingdom), indicating governance of physical affairs.
The images of the Three Forms of Energy that govern the movement of phenomena, are the Sworded Sphinx, Hermanubis, and Typhon. Representing the four Kerubs, the Sphinx is a composite of , the bull, the lion, the eagle and the man which also correspond to the four magic virtues of, To Know, To Will, To Dare and To Keep Silent; these four elements, summed with a fifth, called Spirit, form the pentagram). In Alchemy, the Sphinx represents the element sulfur and is temporarily exalted at the top of the Wheel. Held in her paws is a roman short sword.The simian element dominates in the god Hermanbuis, seen here climbing up the left side of the Wheel. Even though he is a composite god, in this instance, he represents the alchemical Mercury. In Egyptian Qabalah, the God Typhon, who is the crocodile headed beast on the right side of the wheel, who in the primitive world represent volcanoes and horrifying winds also represents the alchemical element of Salt. In Mythology, Typhon angered Zeus who blasted him with lightning bolts, thus making Typhon the father of hot and poisonous winds who also begets Harpies. One would think that interpretation ends there, but in truth, lightnings which destroy, also beget, leading us to understand the Unity of Supreme attainment and the delight of reconstruction from destruction. This could also be understood as the logic of Karma.
It behooves us to understand, that no matter how dense and dull a phenomena maybe, a time will come when it must stir. The end and reward for our efforts may became lucid quietude but in the Universe, that pause soon degrades into the original entropy and/or original inertia. Thus, the correction is Changing the motion of comfortable atoms, so that carbon atoms of the living do not become carbon atoms of entropy, id est, diamonds.
When this card is thrown, the querent shall experience or is experiencing good fortune and happiness, but within bounds. Sometimes they will be or have been, experiencing a form of intoxication with success, which is due to change. In the next 10 weeks or 10 months, the querent will experience the opportunity for prosperity, abundance and good fortune.; a kind of fortunate breakthrough. The manifestation of something anticipated.
According to the dignity of the accompanying cards, this is fate at work, where the querent must await the outcome of events set into motion and there is nothing more to do but to wait and observe how the universal energies respond. There is unity in Diversity so seemingly opposite and unrelated elements are coming together creating a complete surprise in unity. This unseen summation, is what we often call "fate", because we were unable to see the outcome of our actions.
