Tarot Card Description & Meanings
The Wheel of Fortune: This card shows a large circle with symbols, angelic beings and sphinx atop the circle, with many other symbols. This card has much to do with luck and karma, but there is a stabilizing force with this influence too.
This card represents progress, the end of one cycle, changes and new things. It is also associated with the roulette wheel.
This card symbolizes our materialistic desires as well as our spiritual side.
The Wheel of Fortune asks you to accept that there are greater forces than yourself at work in the universe. Try to accept your limitations and have an awareness of what is outside of your control. Above all, if things do seem out of control don't panic. Try to relax and enjoy the ride. If you find yourself moving from a happy situation to an unhappy one, do not worry, because the wheel will eventually come full circle.
