The Wheel of Fortune tarot has the most mystical images among all the cards in the tarot deck. You can see a bright blue sky in the background and four fluffy white clouds nestled in the four corners.
A large bronze disc sits in the center with arcane symbols and letters that spell out the word TAROT. There is a sphinx sitting on top of the disc, looking straight ahead.
Below him, a creature that looks like a humanoid with a wolf for a head is climbing in a counterclockwise direction. On the opposite side, a snake is making its way down. On the four clouds, you can also see three winged creatures and an angel reading a book.
In readings, the Wheel of Fortune can mean a vision or an epiphany that strikes you very strongly. If you have been suffering or struggling with problems or difficult situations, this card can indicate that you will finally see what you have been seeking for and look at the world from an entirely different perspective, like the Three of Wands.
The Wheel of Fortune reminds you that the wheels will keep turning no matter how desperately you want them to stop. No matter how painful or how happy you’re feeling, that moment will pass.
The Wheel of Fortune also signifies change, and how you must keep your perspective, as well as learn to shift it because that, too, changes. Just like everything else in this world. Likewise, it is similar to the Three of Wands or in a negative light, the Devil.
You must learn to accept that not everything in your life is within your control, and everything else that is beyond it must be accepted in order to move forward. It’s just the natural cycle of life.
The Wheel of Fortune also symbolizes chance encounters and twists of fate. Anything that resembles the movement of the wheel, you can expect.
Change of direction, fast movement, repeating cycles — you are caught in the turning wheel and you don’t know when it will stop or where you will end up.
The Wheel of Fortune Tarot and Love
Even in the healthiest and best of relationships, there is a cycle, and nothing will be the same forever. If you haven’t experienced a change in your relationship, there’s something seriously wrong with you or your partner.
Can you check if he still has a pulse?
The Wheel of Fortune will bring some changes into your romantic life. Most of the time, these are positive changes. If you’re one of those women who think their relationship has never been better, think again.
Something bumpy or stormy your way comes, although possibly less dramatic. But it’s in the cards. It doesn’t necessarily mean you and your honey are heading to splitsville, but more like heading to a different direction.
If in the past there have been no plans in purchasing a home, now that change is happening, you and your honey are probably planning some house shopping.
If before you didn’t want kids, now you probably can’t stop thinking about pretty names for baby girls.
For the single ladies hoping to find love, the Wheel of Fortune means good news. It means romance to those who seek it. For the ladies in a committed relationship, it’s a sign to re-examine your relationship and ask yourself if this is still something that you need in your life.
It’s the perfect opportunity to start working through the problems, if there are any, and hoping for the best. If things don’t exactly work out, remember that it’s not the end of the world, and this, too, will pass.
The Wheel of Fortune simply wants you to prepare yourself because anything can happen in love and in your relationships.
The Wheel of Fortune Tarot and Money
When it comes to money, the Wheel of Fortune is overall a good and positive sign for those who have been struggling and experiencing hardships with money. Your luck is about to change.
On the other hand, those who have been enjoying abundant money flow may possibly experience a drop in their income. You don’t need to be overly concerned, though.
You have prepared for moments like this, and your rainy day savings will tide you over this temporary financial dry spell. There is a sign of good luck and positive energy with the Wheel of Fortune.
The Wheel of Fortune Tarot’s Meaning for the Future
The Wheel of Fortune is a great card to appear in your reading for the future, although it signifies changes that can be troublesome and undesirable. If life has been quiet and happy, expect some kind of trouble to break out that can affect that.
If life has not been kind to you lately, wait for better days for they sure are on their way. Everything changes and everything passes.
The Wheel of Fortune in the future position is about uncertainty, so this card is a warning so you can prepare yourself for such eventualities.
In the reversed position, it represents a form of sluggishness and dullness. Change this — add some life into your life! Cool off from all the Netflix nights and start doing things that actually make you sweat. Be active physically and mentally. Nourish your mind and spirit. Get rid of all the bad juju!
My Final Thoughts on the Wheel of Fortune Tarot
Remember that your luck will not last forever. The Wheel of Fortune doesn’t work like a fairy godmother that can grant your wish of a golden carriage for a night out in the town. Or for money when you have maxed out your credit cards.
Or for a new boyfriend after you lost interest in the previous three. No, it doesn’t work that way.
What the Wheel of Fortune is trying to tell you is that you have to act on your desires, and know that the universe is going to cooperate fully. Because the universe approves of your desires, they will happen as they should.
You can throw your wishes to the wind, and they can be granted, but you have to know what you want, and want what you really want.
Don’t waste your good luck. Don’t surrender to the greed. Yes, the Wheel of Fortune card represents playing your odds, but there’s no losing when you work hard and when you’re determined.
The harder you work for what you want, the more likely you are to achieve it, no matter how impossible it seems. This can apply to all of your personal and professional affairs.
So don’t ever quit! Keep tweeting and retweeting Justin Timberlake and he will favorite you sooner or later. Never stop wearing that smile on your face because someone will surely notice. Don’t lose heart when your online sales are not phenomenal.
The only way to go is up, and the future has never looked so exciting. Are you ready for what your tomorrow will bring?
