Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel Of Forune Tarot Card Meaning

As the spiritual light and mist enshrouds the spinning wheel of fortune, two sparkling crystals remain as witnesses to its journey. Above it all soars a majestic hawk in flight, foretelling an unknown destiny awaiting us around each turn. Within every tarot reading lies potential for transformative change - whether positive or negative but nonetheless inviting further growth along life's path. The appearance of this card is our reminder that new opportunities lie ahead with transformation ever-present; ushering renewal into relationships, careers, health and spirituality alike! When you encounter the Wheel of Fortune embrace whatever awaits you – be ready for what may come next!

The Wheel of Fortune is a true embodiment of mythical power. Its tapestry weaves together various cultural symbols, from the imperial purple and white spiritual light at its core to the hawk that watches over it all - representing both caution and intelligence in one fell swoop. The crystals gazing outwards represent earth, fire, air & water; as well as balance flowing through each corner sending signs that success will be aligned with you when your wish comes alive! I love this card, and means anything is possible.

I always find that essentially drawing this card denotes that your wishes can surely be granted, but you have to know exactly what it is that you want. It does not act as a fairy god mother card, allowing anything of your wildest fantasy to come true. No, instead of this, it asserts that your desires are within your reach and the universe is conspiring to help you in your goal. Because the universe is in harmony with your desires the “how” will happen easily. However, be sure your goal is within the realm of possibility not the fairy realm. Resist the temptation to succumb to greed this luck will not last forever so you don’t want to waste it. Once you have identified what it is that you want, then the gambling side of the Wheel of Fortune comes in handy. This is a card that tells you to play your odds. Determination wins out. The law of averages speaks in your favor. The more that you perpetuate something that you want, the more likely you are to receive that very thing, even if it feels impossible. These manifestation possibilities are endless and range in subject matter; from love, to money, to success, to happiness.

When the Wheel of Fortune is transiting your reading, this means that now is the time for you to take action, because the odds are better for you than the average person. Some times in life, this is not so, but if this card is coming up as a main representative in your life then it is like having a lucky ace in your pocket, except legitimately.

The Wheel of Fortune in Love

To everything turn, turn, turn…” Relationships with others are balanced from the beginning fluttery stages to the boring ho-hum mediocrity of stagnation and even blood-boiling fights from time to time. In a healthy relationship there is cycle and nothing stays the same forever. If you haven’t experienced the changing stages of a long term relationship, then you are about to because drawing the Wheel of Fortune card says that in romance, one way or another your luck will be changing; and most of the time that change will be positive. If you happen to be one of the small percentages of people that think everything is perfect in your relationship, you may be in for a bit of a bumpy ride. The change aspect of the wheel is less dramatic than other cards in the deck, but it is there. Rather than representing an ending it is merely a shift in direction that is coming. This is also an excellent time to go into a joint venture with your partner, to begin searching for the perfect home to purchase, to begin having children or to make other big decisions that you think might be somewhat of a gamble. If you take some risks, the Wheel Of Fortune will bless you if it is meant to be.

For those seeking love, the Wheel of Fortune is a good sign indeed. If you currently have no relationship (and thus no fortune in the love department) then you have nowhere to go but up! The presence of the Wheel is a sign that there will be someone coming into your life that is new IF you remember to put yourself out there. This is not something that is going to fall in your lap, but if you make the effort the card denotes a possible relationship that could become a long lasting one.

The Wheel Of Fortune As Feelings

There is no way to predict where the wheel of fortune will take us - it spins in all directions. Our feelings about certain things can change as the wheel turns, sometimes coming full circle back to its original state. The journey of life is all about taking a chance and coming out stronger than before. We never know when the wheel may fall gently on our side, so we must let go and surrender to see what happens. Life is a wheel of fortune, and feelings are along for the ride.

The Wheel Of Fortune in Work, Money, Business, Career, and Wealth

In business, career, wealth, and work, the Wheel Of Fortune tarot card signifies good fortune and prosperity. There is a good chance that you will achieve financial success in the near future. Promotions or new job opportunities may result in this. There may be unexpected windfalls, such as winning the lottery or receiving dividends from investments or stocks. Business ventures or investments can also be successful when the Wheel Of Fortune appears. The card encourages you to take risks and to have faith that your efforts will pay off. The reversed card could be a sign of financial difficulties, especially if it appears in a tarot spread. Changing your spending habits or making financial adjustments may be necessary in this case. In all cases, the Wheel Of Fortune is a reminder that no matter what your current circumstances are, with dedication and hard work, anything is possible. 

The Wheel of Fortune tarot card also reminds us to stay humble and grateful for what we have. In this card, we are encouraged to appreciate life's blessings, no matter how small they may seem.

Taking action with optimism and enthusiasm will lead to success if you remain open-minded.

The Wheel Of Fortune Tarot Card As Love Reconciliation

Relationships are cyclical - ups, downs, and all - as the Wheel of Fortune tarot card illustrates. Although breakups can be painful and heartbreaking, they also offer opportunities for growth and healing. The Wheel represents the understanding of how to take what happened in the past, learn from it, and move forward with peace and love.

It is imperative that we acknowledge that all relationships are in a continuous state of change in order to find harmony with our partners. Even if we go into a relationship with the best intentions, we cannot control its outcome. The Wheel reminds us that sometimes it takes patience and understanding to get back on track in a relationship. When relationships are damaged, it may take time and effort to repair them, but with the right care and effort, it can be done. The Wheel reminds us that new beginnings and growth are always possible, no matter what has been broken between you two.

The most important thing to remember is that with love reconciliation, you will learn more about yourself and your partner - not just how to make things work better between the two of you, but also how to understand yourself better. Greater self-awareness and a healthier relationship can result from this understanding. No matter what happens, love reconciliation is always possible according to the Wheel of Fortune tarot card.

The Wheel Of Fortune As An Action/Advice

When the Wheel of Fortune card appears in an action/advice reading, I believe it signifies you need to push for change, fortune, and destiny. You can interpret this card as either an action card or an advice card. In its action card form, the Wheel of Fortune suggests to me --- that now is the time to take action and embrace change. My advice is that no matter how uncomfortable or challenging life may be, it encourages acceptance. We can take responsibility for how we respond to life's events even when we have no control over them.

Often drawn as an advice card, the Wheel of Fortune suggests trusting your intuition and remaining open to possibilities. Taking risks and letting go of expectations are encouraged. Sometimes we do not have control over what happens in our lives, but we can still choose how we react to it. You can always find love reconciliation with the Wheel of Fortune tarot card. You can get back together if you have patience, understanding, and dedication.

Wheel of Fortune in Health

Often indicating cyclic health changes, the Wheel of Fortune card refers to things changing either for the better or the worse. Depending on your current health state the card shows that there will be a difference or change coming soon. If you are having health issues you need to be mindful of where your wheel is currently, so to speak. Consider researching the Native American Medicine Wheel. Locate where your most common ailments are and begin tackling this. A stroke of luck generally accompanies this card and usually you will notice vitality and an increase in health… however also be mindful of taking advantage of your good health and pushing your own physical or mental boundaries too far.

Wheel of Fortune in Work and Wealth

Usually when the Wheel of Fortune comes up in a work or wealth reading there is a hint of good luck and positive energies surrounding you at this time. Work and finances will come together and there is no need to make any drastic changes. You should consider continuing on with what you are doing right now and make sure to jump on any opportunities that come your way that might benefit your current circumstances. If for example you want enough money coming in that you can afford a Cherry Apple Red Jaguar, then what do you need to do? You need to keep a lookout for advertisements that describe your perfect Cherry Apple Red Jaguar and then jump on the bargain deal. Do not be afraid to take a chance, luck is on your side.

Wheel of Fortune As Advice

In the advice position, this card says what is going to happen will happen regardless. There is a focus of lack of control. It’s saying that if you are thinking about making a change just go for it. This is really the unpredictable, that as the wheel turns so does your future. Also this card can say at the moment don’t do anything right now because no action is action in itself. You need to draw another card to see where this is going. 

The Wheel Of Fortune As Yes Or No

When you draw the Wheel Of Fortune in a “Yes Or No” tarot card reading you can almost feel the divine energy radiating from its spinning wheel; relishing in the power of the universe. As you spin the wheel, you gain a little more awareness, allowing your intuition to guide you. Yes or no, the Wheel Of Fortune tarot card always brings a sense of awe and wonder.  And with it comes the knowledge of knowing that something greater is at work.  A power that can only be experienced through this special card.  So take a moment, take a spin and feel the energy flow. The Wheel Of Fortune tarot card can never give a concrete answer, so I always consider it a “maybe.”

Reversed wheel of fortune

Reversed Meaning Of Wheel Of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune in reversed represents general stagnation and the need to be more active or mobile. It can also indicate that you are in an unlucky period in your life and warns against taking unnecessary risks. This will come up if you are a perpetual gambler and is warning you that you have strained yourself and the wheel will not support you. Take a break from gambling and consider working with what you have only for a time.

As we make choices today, our future can be shaped by the Wheel of Fortune tarot card. Taking risks, understanding cycles, and trusting in the natural order are all part of the message. As a symbol of karma, the wheel reminds us that what goes around comes around - for better or for worse. The message is to accept that life is ever-changing and tumultuous, but that balance and success are always possible. As we take our place on this wheel, we pull together the threads of our lives and weave our own destiny. With patience and courage, we will come out triumphant as the wheel turns.

The Wheel of Fortune encourages us to believe in our own journey, and speaks to the need for change. We are reminded to remain flexible, open-minded, and ready to take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Wheels also symbolize luck, opportunities, and infinite possibilities; they remind us to embrace life's uncertainties and trust that we will be rewarded with good fortune. Don't forget that you can be the master of your own fate. Take hold of the wheel and let it guide you to a brighter future. When good fortune is on its way but being blocked when reversed, I see the Wheel of Fortune tarot card. It might be a windfall of money, an inheritance, or just a bit of good luck. No matter how it appears, The Wheel of Fortune is a welcome sight for anyone who needs a little help.
