The meaning of the wheel as a symbolic entity is similar to that of the CIRCLE, with the additional quality of movement. As a symbol of the SUN, the wheel’s spokes parallel the rays of the sun . It is the Wheel of Fortune in a deck of tarot cards, and in the Taoist tradition, the wheel is the Sage who has reached the point of motionless center, around which movement may occur without himself being moved.
