Wheel Of Fortune Tarot Card
The Wheel of Fortune tarot card is the 10th trump. It is a card in the major arcana. When a card from the major arcana appears in your reading you should take note. It is a very powerful card. This card is one which is very positive. It is especially positive if you are stuck in a rut. It signals a change in the weather. New events will enter your life. Fate is turning the wheels of fortune in your favor.
Description and Interpretation
In tarot there are various decks used to predict the future. You should select one which you feel drawn to. I have several decks in my collection. Each deck has different images on the cards. The most popular tarot deck by far is the Rider-Waite deck. It has more than 100 hundreds years of history behind it. This deck has had a tremendous influence on the development of tarot as a occult method. Historically tarot started out merely as a card game.
The Rider-Waite deck shows us an image of a bronze disk on the Wheel of Fortune card. This disk has 4 winged creatures around it. These creatures symbolize the 4 fixed signs of the zodiac. This is a symbol of change which is bringing stability into your life. This card is very positive because these changes which emerge will be wrought with destiny. Your path is opening up. You are being presented with viable opportunities. I have read that the number 10 is very significant when this card appears. You should look into a window of opportunity which appears over the course of 10 weeks or 10 months.
The reversed Wheel of Fortune card suggests that the hands of fate are not working in your favor. You should assess the situation carefully. Decisions are best made from the heart. A career path or opportunity you may be pursuing for the wrong reasons. Often there are opportunities in life which seem positive from the outside. When this card appears in reverse you should carefully look at the offer or situation in front of you. Failure will occur if you travel too far from your destined. When you are pursuing your correct destiny there will be fewer failures along the way. In many cases there can be minor opposition. When this card appears reversed this opposition is more than minor. Financial loss is a major risk. Disappointing circumstances may occur. You should exercise caution when making major life changes.
