The Major Arcana

The Wheel of Fortune

Card Theme: Fate
Element: Fire

The Wheel of Fortune is a card jam-packed and full of symbols. There are four images of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. These signs are symbolized by the Four signs of the Zodiac. The Wheel appears between two clouds, representing hope, charity, and spiritual discovery. We see a sphinx sitting on the top of the Wheel. And a snake is coming down the left side of the Wheel.

The Wheel of Fortune is one of the few cards in the traditional Major Tarot deck that does not include a human figure. This is quite fitting because this card talks about things that are outside the mortal realm. Depending on your personal opinion, you could see this as the Power of God, the Law of Karma, or just pure fate.

The Wheel of Fortune symbolizes a change of events. That is often for the better. As the Wheel of Fortune is always turning, and its energy continually shifts around you,. This card indicates a significant shift, and a considerable change is ahead. You will be coming to the end of your current cycle.

Everything happens for a reason when it comes to the Wheel of Fortune; sometimes, things happen. And try as you might. You can’t fight change, however hard you try. Still, when the dust has settled. And you have time for reflection. You will see how significant those changes were in your life. This card asks you to roll with the punches and put your trust in fate’s hands, and you will see that things are now moving in the right direction.

This card shows up as a reminder that although you might like to believe that you’re in total charge and have control in your life, some forces are often beyond your control. You will need to accept that you are not in charge of this process and must watch it unfold, welcoming the changes. And be aware that when this process comes to an end, you will be able to acknowledge it.

Now is a great time to step out of your comfort zone and take action. Under the energy of the Wheel Of Fortune, the advantages are usually in your favor.

Often this card is connected with money, but it actually embodies so much more. This card clearly shows the four properties served by the Earth, Fire, Air, and Water. Therefore it can represent any area in your life: money, security, and ideas to do with your career.

The Wheel of Fortune is a happy card. It indicates that it is a great time to act on feelings and abilities.
However, it’s important to remember that the Wheel can turn, either way, representing the ups and downs of life. Maybe it feels you have been on an emotional rollercoaster ride recently. Still, you are now entering a period in which you will start to feel more in control. Try to accept your limitations and have an understanding of what is actually outside your control. Above all, don’t worry, try and relax and enjoy the ride.

This card is associated with good luck and Fortune and can foretell sudden positive events. Be on the lookout as things seem to appear out of nowhere as lady luck is on your side and will present new and exciting options for you.

The Wheel of Fortune indicates that you will see positive changes. Even if you might not find yourself moving from an unhappy situation to a happy one as fast as you would like. The energy will change. As you know, it doesn’t rain forever.

There is no need to feel concerned because, as I said before, the Wheel of Fortune is always turning and will come full circle.

Suppose you have found yourself struggling with money issues. In that case, your finances may be about to get better from an unexpected force. Look at clearing out your cupboards; you never know there could be some items of value you are totally unaware of.

The Wheel Of Fortune indicates situations going full circle. Sometimes this card has Karmic associations. If it feels like the Wheel has been spinning endlessly, and you have had no control over events in your life. You will find now that life will start to become calmer. This is an excellent time to put in extra effort to manifest whatever you desire.

It’s time to use the Wheels positive message wisely now to listen to your intuition.

Affirmation: “I will embrace every change in my life.”


Blocked Meaning

Card Theme: Instability

The Wheel of Fortune in the blocked position indicates that you may have felt out of control. You may have suffered some bad luck. Your actions in the past may have set you up for failure in the future. If you don’t allow change to happen, you will stay on the Wheel, moving in the same direction. The simple meaning of this card when blocked is closure. Things might seem up in the air now, .maybe your fighting and refusing to let change happen. Instead, try taking a deep breath and going with the flow, and be open to the change around you. You will start to be able to navigate any situation.

This card can suggest a lack of confidence in yourself. Now is the time to begin to keep working towards your goals with a positive attitude.
