More Meanings for the Wheel of Fortune

The other day, I walked you through the Wheel of Fortune tarot card meaning. Today I'm going to talk about the different meanings that this card may have depending on the other arcana that surround it.

As already stated this card is versatile and can be positive or negative very easily. It is also really easy to guess it's good or bad meaning from its neighboring cards.

Positive or negative tarot spread?

In the psychic reading I detailed the other day the tarot card was placed right after the Death; which is symbol of the end of an era or entire renewal (in a good sense in this case).

The Death relates to changes, and the Wheel of Fortune to its right was supposed to provide us with more in-depth information. However and because the card is so versatile it did not provide us with any more information than "indeed, the change will be dramatic".

OK. Dramatic but... in which way ???

In order to provide more information to my client I needed to spread another card. That is where the Chariot and it so positive effects impacted my reading and allowed me to say that the outcome would be so positive.

Now imagine that, instead of the Chariot we would have had the Tower; which is a very negative arcanum. The most negative one in the whole deck. 

The association of the Death and the Wheel of fortune would have been entirely different. From a positive outcome we would have had a disaster! As indeed, with the Tower in the neighborhood, this psychic reading would have been extremely negative with the client laid off, jobless for a long time, depressed, etc. 

Some more interpretations for the tenth tarot arcanum

The Empress

When spread to the right of the Empress, this arcanum tells us that our destiny is in the hands of a woman. This can be in all kinds of situations, from employment questions to love matters.

The Magician

When placed to the right of the Magician and spread for a man, it may relate to its occupation. One of the meanings may tell us that this man is going to get a promotion and higher wages, for example. You will look at the next cards to provide a more accurate prediction.

The Sun

Place the Wheel of Fortune to the right of the Sun and you can tell your client that he/she's going to be successful in all domains of his/her life. Obviously, the previous and next cards will provide you with more accurate answers.

The Tower

Depending on where the Tower is placed the meaning can be positive or negative:

  • Tower to the right: misfortune, loss of money, failure...
  • Tower to the left: (double check neighboring cards!!!) end of problems, end of an era, renewal, etc.

That's it for today. See you soon for an article dedicated to the Strength.
