FORTUNA

Fortuna is the symbol of life's unpredictable twists and turns

The wheel represents the constant flow of happiness and unhappiness, success and failure. People are placed on this wheel, and depending on where it spins, they experience ups and downs.

The symbol illustrates that fate is influenced by external factors that are beyond an individual's control. Fortuna challenges people to adapt to life's changes and maintain their determination in the midst of challenges.

Fortuna and Jupiter

In Roman mythology, Fortuna is often mentioned in connection with other gods, in particular the god of fate, Jupiter. In some stories, Jupiter is portrayed as the one who decides the fate of people, while Fortuna is the executive force that implements his decisions.

The "Aeneid". Narrative of the epic journey of the Trojan hero Aeneas.

In the dark night, Aeneas knelt in front of the campfire when suddenly the temple of Fortuna emerged from the shadows. The goddess of fortune, dressed in a shimmering robe, stepped forward.

"Brave Aeneas," Fortuna spoke in a voice that rushed through the trees like the wind, "your path is marked by ups and downs. The wheel of fate is in my hands, and your destiny is well known to me."

Aeneas, awestruck, asked, "Why do you test us so?"

Fortuna smiled, "In the challenges you will find the strength you need. I am the guardian of rewards."

With these words, Fortuna disappeared into the shadows again, and Aeneas stood there strengthened, ready to master his destiny.

Temple of the goddess Fortuna Primigenia in Praeneste

In the ancient days of Rome lived Livia, a young woman whose longing went beyond the mere pleasures of life. To find her destiny, she went to the temple of Fortuna. In a dreamy state, the goddess appeared to her and announced three trials.

The first test took Livia through a dangerous forest. Through determination and courage, she found a hidden spring that gave her life. The second test sent her on a sea voyage. After storms and calm waters, she discovered a treasure chest full of riches and wisdom.

The final test took Livia to a majestic mountain peak. There she met a wise hermit who revealed the secrets of life to her. With this knowledge, Livia returned to her village. Her wisdom and kindness made her a valued advisor. Fortuna had guided her through trials that not only brought her happiness, but also a deeper connection to herself and her community.

"The goddess Fortuna spins the thread of life with an unpredictable pattern. We may not control the direction, but our determination shapes the path we take on her wheel."
