What’s the wheel of the Arcanum 10?
Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor
In the middle section is the Wheel of Fortune, or the Wheel of Samsara; the wheel of births and deaths. On the right side arises Hermanubis, evolving; to the left descends Typhoon Baphomet in involution.
At the end of 108 lives, the wheel has made a complete turn. Whilst it rises we observe evolution through the mineral, vegetable, animal and human kingdoms; on falling, it descends via the same route.
The Wheel of Samsara revolves 3,000 times; after this, the Essence, having passed through many purifications and sufferings returns to the Absolute, but without Self- Realisation.
In the upper part of the card, the Sphinx, in equilibrium above the Wheel, represents Mother Nature. The Sphinx is the Elemental Intercessor of the Blessed Mother Goddess of the World. In it we will find represented the five elements.
