Why we love it: Collection of hand-made candles based on the 22 cards of the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck (Latin arcānus– mystery). These 22 cards can be interpreted as a person’s spiritual path from birth to perfection. The candle is marked with number 10 of the Major Arcana – Wheel of Fortune.
Head Note: Helichrysum, Myrtle, Verbena
Heart Note: Cinnamon Bark, Sandalwood
Base Notes: Juniper
This archetype of ups and downs reminds us to rejoice every day about the gifts of Fortuna, because one day we see her face, but the next day she might turn her back on us. The archetype of Wheel of Fortune symbolizes the endless cycle of success constantly being replaced by misfortune, and vice versa. It is a never-ending change that can only be stopped by altering one’s won attitude towards the surrounding events. It is a symbolic wheel of karma – you reap what you sow. It is also a symbol of the Samsara wheel, where death is followed by birth, and birth is followed by death. We can only escape this circle through spiritual growth and by looking at our trials and moments of success as if from above and by understanding their purpose.
