Let me introduce you to Goddess Fortuna, who is associated with luck, fate, and fortune.

She is sometimes depicted holding a cornucopia, a symbol of abundance and prosperity. This reflects her role in granting blessings and wealth to those she favours.

Goddess Fortuna is often seen as blindfolded to symbolize the randomness and impartiality of fate. It suggests that she bestows her gifts and misfortunes without regard to a person’s merits or virtues.

The connection between the Wheel of Fortune and the goddess Fortuna is central to her symbolism and mythology. The Wheel of Fortune, also known as the “Rota Fortunae” in Latin, prominently represents Fortuna’s role in determining the ups and downs of human fate and luck, with the wheel turning upward and downward.

It reminds us of the impermanence of worldly success and the need for humility in times of prosperity, as one’s fortune can change rapidly. Conversely, it offers hope in times of adversity, as one’s luck may improve. This lesson encourages individuals to remain grounded and not become too attached to their current circumstances.
