Sunday Tarot Song: The Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune

Landslide – Stevie Nicks

This song, about confronting and accepting change, feel today like the Wheel of Fortune – that feeling of knowing that time is unstoppable, challenges come, times are good and bad…and how you have to look that all in the face and keep on going.

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
Till the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

 

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older and I’m getting older too

Oh, I’m getting older too

Awh, take my love, take it down
Awh, climb a mountain and turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide bring it down

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide bring it down
Oh, the landslide bring it down

    What a beautiful song! It is one of my favourites from Fleetwood Mac and one that has been haunting me through several periods of change.

    To me, it is comforting to see the Wheel of Fortune, though – I’ve been stuck in a rut for quite some time now and hopefully this landslide will bring me up, not down 🙂

    Thank you .. just well , uncanny , the timing of this post for me personally is spot on & this is spooky because I was looking at some Stevie Nicks songs the other day, having a need to hear her , as she takes me waaay back to my young.. ( and wilder ) days and somehow she has that Witchy healing feel to her in her voice and songs that fit this time of year, it is that time of reflection for me leading up to Samhain I love it… yet… It carries a yearning . I am missing my Mother, and all those gone before and that deep longing for a better world.. And knowing I have some mountains to climb yet to achieve a dream . So this is lovely and synchronistic. Thank you again .

      Thank you for sharing this Selkie. Yeah, her voice *is* healing somehow, I really find that. I’ve been a Fleetwood Mac fan for years but only recently got into Stevie Nicks herself, after so so many different people telling me I should. Hope you have a wonderful Samhain and feel you mum close. And good luck with your own mountains!

    I first came across these lyrics in a Mademoiselle magazine interview with Stevie Nicks years ago, and when I read “Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love? Can the child within my heart rise above? Can I sail through the changing ocean tides? Can I handle the seasons of my life?” I knew I had to find this song and listen to it. And now I play this on my birthday every year. Which is also, coincidentally, Stevie Nicks’ birthday. 🙂
