The Wheel of Fortune
The Major Arkana card, marked with number ten.
The Wheel of Fortune is a card of the Great Arcans marked with the number 10, which in numerology reduces to the number one. So when it comes to numerology, this tab means rebooting, starting all over again, and also breaking new ground. The symbolism on the card is rich and evokes strong associations with the changing course of fate. In the center of the card there is a circle with three axes, at the ends of which there are hermetic symbols. The sphinx, the guardian of human destiny, rises above the wheel, representing the never-ending cycle of change. He embodies all the mysteries of fate, mystery and uncertainty. The Sphinx holds a sword with its paw, which is a symbol of sudden and inevitable decisions. Below the central wheel of fortune is Anubis, an Ancient Egyptian underworld lord in red, depicted with the head of a jackal. There is also a serpent near the wheel, which is a reference to the uroboros, or the serpent that devours its own tail and then reborn in an endless cycle. On the other hand, the four tops of the Wheel of Fortune card are crowned with four winged creatures, which are the traditional representations of the four evangelists: the lion, the ox, the man and the eagle. The position of the wheel against the clouds and sky and the wings of the guarding beings emphasize the influence of higher forces on human destiny.
The Wheel of Fortune card primarily represents the variability of fate and destiny. It often means events of a karmic nature, i.e. events whose appearance is currently beyond our control, because they are related to the karma we have accumulated during our previous lives. These events come suddenly, often unexpectedly, and we cannot avoid them. There are forces in our lives that are more powerful than us – but we always have a choice of how we react to their coming. The card reminds us of the need to accept reality as it is, because only after accepting a given situation are we able to transform it. In addition, the Wheel of Fortune brings comfort in difficult times, reminding you that everything is temporary. Difficulties pass and good times follow.
The Wheel of Fortune card in the Tarot schedule informs us that our situation may change radically. If we have experienced a worse period in our life so far, the card means that it is almost over. On the contrary: if we have enjoyed success in life so far, it may soon turn out that the foundations of our sense of security are not as strong as we expected. The Wheel of Fortune was set in motion by a higher force to radically transform our private, professional or family situation. It is impossible to predict what this transformation will lead to. It is important to remain calm and have high moral standards in the face of whatever may come.
Depending on the accompanying cards in the layout, the Wheel of Fortune can also talk about possible occasions that are worth seizing. In a positive sense, it is a card of luck, meaning a life’s luck, a smile of fate or a successful coincidence that cannot be wasted. The emerging opportunity will quickly pass, the wheel will go on, our attraction to happiness will go away, and we may stay in place with a sense of loss. Everything is temporary and everything has a time that will never happen again. The Wheel of Fortune card reminds you to give yourself a chance for happiness when it is within our reach.
Make conscious changes to your life, keeping in mind the variability of fortune.
Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a great stroke of luck.
The reversed Wheel of Fortune card means past fears. It may be a person who does not believe he can make conscious changes in his life and believes that some oracle has plans for his life. It can also mean temporary conflicts or badly taken decisions.
Fool card about Feelings
The Wheel of Fortune stands for the transformation of relationships. It can mean an affair or a whole new feeling that we enter without knowing what the relationship will bring. A card may mean that the feeling that is meant for us comes to our path. It can talk about love, which we are destined to experience, so that it can make a deep inner transformation in us.
Card about Health
The Wheel of Fortune card can represent significant changes to your health, such as a successful recovery, recovery and end of illness, but unfortunately also deterioration after a period of relative stability. If we are under treatment, it heralds a breakthrough. Our health situation may change significantly, so it is worth taking periodic examinations and rethinking your habits every day.
Tarot Card in Finances
In the area of work and finance, the meaning of the Wheel of Fortune is most often positive. The card bodes well for successful investments, good business opportunities, and successful news from authorities and banks. The card can also be an announcement of getting a new job, which we wanted. Overall, it means a winning streak worth taking advantage of.
In a negative position, the card advises us to be careful with people who deceive us with visions of big money and amazing profits. A venture that someone proposes to us may enjoy a very short success. In such a situation, the card tells about a financial risk, where you can gain a lot but also lose even more.
In addition, the Wheel of Fortune indicates that it is worth looking for additional financial security. He says that after a period of prosperity, a crisis may come, which is worth being prepared for, so as not to lose what we have worked hard for.
Remember to have your own interpretation. Focus and feel individual energy that flows from the Tarot Card.
