The Wheel of Fortune Tarot Card - Does it Mean Your Luck is In, Or Out?

By Alison Yates

The Tarot cards are used by Psychics to reveal secrets about the circumstances, past, present and future, of a Querent (a person receiving a tarot reading), or even about themselves.

There are 78 cards in a typical tarot deck divided into The Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The work Arcana means Secret.

The Wheel of Fortune is a fascinating card of the Major Arcana.

Where this card appears in a Tarot Spread and it's relationship with surrounding cards will be interpreted by the Psychic.

The Wheel of Fortune card can is regarded as an interesting Tarot card if it turns up in a Tarot Spread in a Tarot Reading. It's appearance strongly suggests that the Querent feels that they are lacking direction and may be in need of guidance.

Some of the questions the appearance of the Wheel of Fortune card throws up when it appears in a Tarot reading are:

Think about an opinion or view you once held but now no longer believe in. What caused you to change your mind?
Are you a lucky person? Has your success been at the expense of someone else? Have your failures led to another person's victory? Think about how success and failure, good and bad luck seem to balance out.
Ask yourself are you afraid of change? How do you overcome this fear?
In relation to someone's personality the Wheel of Fortune indicates a lucky and generous person who always looks on the bright side of life, is open to opportunity, and not afraid to take on challenges.

In relation to family and friends the Wheel of Fortune often represents a turning point in relationships. If there have been tensions, these will be lifted.

In relation to someone's health the Wheel of Fortune shows that an improvement in health is likely.

In relation to someone's love life the Wheel of Fortune heralds a fortunate time ahead.

In relation to a person's career the Wheel of Fortune suggests that luck is on your side, go for that pay rise, go for that promotion, go for that dream job - buy that lotto ticket!

The Wheel of Fortune represents a change in fortune, or a turning point in life. This could be good, or less good.

If the Querent is at the bottom of the wheel, things may start looking up. If the Querent is at the top of the wheel, they can just as easily fall off.

The fairground image of the spinning the wheel of fate: round and round she goes, where she stops, no one knows is very evocative of the meaning of this Tarot card.

This card can also show that an opportunity will present itself, but only for a limited time. The Querent must take action during that time or the opportunity will be lost.

With this card, it is important to look at it in context with the surrounding cards to know which way the Wheel of Fortune is turning.

Positive connotations associated with this card are destiny, movement, good luck and synchronicity.

Negative connotations associated with this card are obstacles, temporary bad luck or unpleasant surprises.
