Wheel of Fortune Tarot Card Meanings:
The Wheel of Fortune brings change and usually of a positive nature unless surrounded or immediately followed by less favourable cards. The wheel suggests the cyclical nature and inevitability of change, what’s down must at some point go back up, and vice-versa.
In earlier Tarot de Marseille style decks La Roue de Fortune is depicted with figures rising and falling upon the wheel, whilst the image in the Swiss IJJ deck shows the goddess Fortuna blindly turning the wheel of their fate.
Circumstances rarely stay the same but the Wheel introduces an element of luck, indicating that it’s a matter of chance, and when Lady Fortuna turns the wheel our luck will change and life can turn around in the blink of an eye. When the Wheel of Fortune appears in your reading it represents a new cycle commencing when luck is riding on your side and gains can be made, so it’s important to make the most of opportunities as you never know when the wheel will turn again.
If reversed or ill-dignified, the Wheel of Fortune may suggest your luck has run out and things are not working in your favour.
