Prison or protection? In this week's episode of Fortune's Wheelhouse, we face the 4 of Pentacles or Disks, the Lord of Power (is that redundant?!) or Material Power. Here are tropes of kingship - the Sun as ruler of the decan, Capricorn as the zodiac's CEO, even Jupiter as the force governing all 4's.

In the fortress of the Old New Year, the embers of increasing light reflect treasures, amassed and hoarded. Does wealth buy freedom, or its opposite?Read More

On this week's episode of Fortune's Wheelhouse, the engines are running, the pistons are pumping, skyscrapers rise on the horizon. The 3 of Pentacles or Disks is the Lord of Work! and the Devil himself ensures there are no idle hands at play here. Combined with the driving force of Mars and the power of the calendrical New Year, all manner of resolutions are taking form.

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.Read More
Halloween happens to fall on a Wednesday this year, and as I know you know perfectly well, Wednesday belongs to my lord Mercury, otherwise known as Hermes, sometimes known as Thoth, also known as ἑρμηνεῦ πάντων (interpreter of all), λυσιμέριμνε (releaser from care), φίλε θνητοῖς ἐν ἀνάγκαις (helper of mortals in need).Read More
