EP 141.5: Tarot Analysis: The Wheel of Fortune | Major Arcana | Felicity and Good Fortune



Summary:


The Wheel of Fortune represents good fortune, luck, and felicity, all things that Sam (from my Tapas graphic novel, "Sam in New York") wants for himself.

I can easily imagine Sam having a Wheel of Fortune as a game show host if he ever became one!


And who's dressed as a playboy bunny on the side of the wheel? It's Sam! It's a wink at the outfit Sam wore in the Sims 4 for Halloween 2020.

In the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, there are four astrological signs representing the Four Evangelists, but I didn't have space to put them in and I didn't want to make the piece too crowded. So we only have Taurus and Leo, which fit him. Although Sam's an Aries, Taurus fits him because he likes material comfort. He also has many Leo qualities, such as desiring attention.

Hi everyone! This week, we’ll look at The Wheel of Fortune in my tarot deck, the Fortunus Games tarot deck.


I chose Sam Abramov, the protagonist of my Tapas graphic novel, “Sam in New York” for this card.

The Wheel of Fortune represents good fortune, luck, and felicity, all things that Sam wants for himself.

I can easily imagine Sam having a Wheel of Fortune as a game show host if he ever became one!

And who's dressed as a playboy bunny on the side of the wheel? It's Sam! It's a wink at the outfit Sam wore in the Sims 4 for Halloween 2020.

In the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, there are four astrological signs representing the Four Evangelists, but I didn't have space to put them in and I didn't want to make the piece too crowded. So we only have Taurus and Leo, which fit Sam the best. Although Sam's an Aries, Taurus fits him because he likes material comfort. He also has many Leo qualities, such as desiring attention.

Each of the astrological signs is reading a book. It’s the Torah, or the first five books of the Bible, which signifies knowledge. Sam also seeks knowledge because he wants to know how he can become a world-famous actor. Although he looks naive and simple-minded to many, he’s actually on a quest for knowledge himself.
