Wheel of Fortune #10 of the Major Arcana

A.E. Waite Tarot Deck

I have decided, after I was visited by my spirit guides, to do a One Card Universal Reading each day. I will blog it here for you to see.  Your day card may provide insights into current or up coming events in your life or may just provide an idea to think about. A day card can also be used simply for learning the Tarot one card/day at a time. My guides have shared with me that the ones who are needing this the most will come and it will enlighten and heal those that are broken. If a card has resonated with you and you are in need of more in-depth information, please do not hesitate to contact me for further clarification.

Key words:

movement, change, expansion, opportunity, speeding up, destiny, luck

The wheel of fortune reminds us that change is inevitable. However things are now, they will most definitely not stay the same forever.

We don’t always have control over what life sets in our path, but we can decide how we respond. Try not to get too attached to one way of being. Don’t try to control everything; you cant.

The Wheel of Fortune advises you to center yourself so that you can stay calm and make good decisions when your world seems like it is spinning out of control.

If you have down on your luck, it is quite likely that the Wheel of Fortune is indicating a change for the better

In Greek mythology, there are three women known as the Fates. They are responsible for spinning the destiny of each person at his or her birth. It is not surprising that the Fates are spinners because the wheel of fortune is an apt image for the elusive turns of a man’s fate. This is the theme of Card 10.

The Wheel of Fortune is one of the few cards in the major arcana that does not have a human figure as a focal point. This is because its center is above the realm of man – in the higher levels (clouds) where the destinies of all are woven together in the tapestry of life. The tarot recognizes that each person sets his own path in life, but is also subject to the larger cycles that include him. We experience chance events that appear to be accidents although they are part of the great plan.

In readings, the Wheel of Fortune can indicate a vision or realization that strikes with great force. If you’ve been struggling with a problem or tough situation, this card can signal that you will find the answer if you stand back and view everything from a larger perspective.

The Wheel of Fortune also represents unexpected encounters and twists of fate. You can’t predict surprises; you can only be aware when one is circling around. Indeed, Card 10 often suggests wheel-like actions – changes in direction, repeating cycles and rapid movement. When the energy of the Wheel arrives, you will feel life speed up. You are caught in a cyclone that may deposit you anywhere. “Round and round and round she goes, and where she stops, nobody knows
