The Wheel of Fortune’s endless wheel of change
The Wheel of Fortune represents the endless cycles within cycles that make up our lives, and even the entire universe. Every day, we wake up, take care of our daily business, go to sleep at night, and then wake up again the next day. Helpless babies grow up and mature into adults, while vital men and women grow old, weaken, and die. Nations, empires, and civilizations rise, hold sway, and then fall, giving way to other nations, empires, and civilizations. There are cycles of life within greater cycles, and the only thing constant is change.
