It’s the 20th week of the year and the card of the week is the Wheel of Time. 2+0=2, a number of duality. And with the sun entering Gemini this week, we kick off the season of opposites attracting. Day and night, masculine and feminine, light and dark — they all come together to balance each other out. If you feel that your life is out of balance, a spin on the Wheel of Fortune may bring a change of luck. If you feel frustrated, be patient. Nothing stays the same and change is on one way.
Mantra: “Luck be a lady tonight” — Frank Sinatra
