This week on Fortune's Wheelhouse, we address the inevitable: the Lord of Change! With the 2 of Pentacles or Disks, we engage with the physical world, and the reality of trying to make our bodies, our works, our things bend to our will. First decan of the Saturn-ruled, Capricorn line-up, the 2 of Disks answers to Jupiter. The Greater Malefic and the Greater Benefic duke it out in this card, and their struggle moves mountains.
In our conversation we discuss many mysteries of the material: Capricorn the goatfish, the season of Yule, the increase of the light, Janus Pater, Jupiter in fall, Deneb Algedi, the Wheel of Fortune, the Devil and his casino of luck and skill, piston engines, the Sumerian god-king Ea, Odin and Baldur, the hoopoe bird and the flexible reed, the green line of Chaos enclosing the universe, the crowned ouroboros, Priapic herm hats, yin and yang, the gaze of the Other, the hourglass as a symbol of time, gifts, messages, travel across distance, contraction and expansion, dextro laevorotatory forces, the chirality of light, first and last hexagrams of I Ching, and a certain bear going over a certain mountain.
In the 2 of Disks, twin globes spin forever in the hands of the cosmic juggler. Our giveaway comes in twins, too - two adorable mini-decks: one of Mel's Rosetta tarot and one of her Tabula Mundi tarot. This card also speaks to us of travel, and these tiny portable decks are perfect for all your travels through the wide world.
