Day 31 Counting the Omar is Tiferet of Hod (Compassion in Humility ). Compassion requires us to be open and receptive. Which are necessary componants of humility. When combined with Ketar of Wheels, (Oneness entering the Matterial World), Humility in Compassion gives us the receptive capacity needed to fully manifest our dreams. When out of the Holy One’s Emenations Air, Water, and Fire, create the realm of Earth, symbolized by a Wheel, the delicious juiciness when all three elements unite in the material world.
KETAR, ACE OF WHEELS
Essence: The material world where inspiration, emotion and thought unite, becoming the world of manifestation. We give concrete form to the dreams our energy creates. As the Wheel comes to earth, it may carry the arrival of a surprise, a gift or a vital message.
The image of the Ketar (Ace) of Wheels is of a wheel turning as it descends to earth. It looks like a wheel in my more formal deck. In my more informal, playful deck the wheel is a pizza. Both symbolize coming to earth, grounding our energy in order to create and nurture our development as it takes concrete form. Furthermore, the image of a pizza is used to express the delicious juiciness when all three elements unite in the material world. In Wheels the Primary Three Mothers, Shin (fire), Mem(Water) and Aleph (Air), represented in the Minor Arcana as the suits of Wands, Cups and Swords, join together, giving birth to the material world. In the Ketar of Wheels we give in to the impulse to manifest and enter the realm of the earth.
The fruits of our spiritual, emotional and mental efforts now come to ground. They bring with them the potential for prosperity, money, a new job, property, the first manifestation of any new-born creation, even a baby. What is wished for can now be granted. For better or worse, our prayers are answered. Labor and rest, growth and action, our potential to shape and be shaped is our capacity for building and giving concrete form to our dreams. We may make a name for ourselves, make our mark on the world, create a legacy.
If supported by the surrounding cards, the Ketar of Wheels may also indicate pennies from Heaven, an arrival, a happy surprise and the reception of a legacy, an unexpected gift.
When reversed, the Ketar of Wheels is a warning to be careful of what we ask for. It reminds us that things are not always what they appear to be. Some wishes, when granted, make the wisher wish they had never wished for it in the first place. Here is a reminder that every wish granted, everything we create, carries with it new responsibilities and commitments and demands more energy from us. As such, we need to prepare for the change, challenge and growth it brings. Here is a wake up call. If we are not grounded, this reversal, is reminding us we must now take the time to become grounded. If blessings come when we are not ready, the adjustment required may be more challenging, like having a child before we are ready and mature enough to take on the responsibility and challenge of our life focus changing from being about ourselves to the care for another.
