The Wheel of Fortune Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present and future. In this kind of drawings, The Wheel of Fortune may come up straight, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers do like to read reverse tarot cards, some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic readers conducts their readings, because a Tarot Card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
The Wheel of Fortune card would represent:
|Approaching destiny||Things come together|
|A turning point||Changing directions|
|Altering events||Getting involved|
|Being awaken||Making progress|
In a reverse position The Wheel of Fortune would mean exactly the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Facing delays||Unwelcomed change|
|Things coming apart||Lack of control|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal position. If The Wheel of Fortune would sit in a horizontal position, it reminds you that you should take your wheel of life in your hands.
You may be allowing someone else to make decisions for you, like what to wear, where to go, how to behave, what career to choose, where to work, who to associate with, etc. If you don’t like what someone else is imposing on you, or if you are just letting things roll, you should wake up and take the wheel on your own hands. You know for yourself what you like and what works best for you, so if you don’t live your life how you want it, no one is going to live it for you. If you feel you are falling apart, that is because you are not doing what fulfills you. You have to impose your own terms upon your life.
