Know what THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE symbolizes and how it influences your life
The Wheel of Fortune is a highly important card with each sign representing a distinct meaning. There are four symbols on all the four corners corresponding to a zodiac constellation.

All the four signs are depicting stability amidst constant change. Written on the wheel are the Hebrew letters IHVH, meaning God. The book each hold in their hands is Tora, a sign of knowledge and wisdom. The snake slithering to the left of the Wheel represents evil. It also symbolizes life and vitality making its way into the material world. Sitting atop the wheel is a Sphinx and emerging from the bottom is Anubis. These are the Egyptian symbols of good and evil. There are two wheels, one within the other. The inner wheel contains symbols of four building blocks of the life on Earth namely, Mercury, Salt, Water, and Sulphur. The outer circle is the physical realm. Eight spokes across the two rings represent the eternal energy that binds the entire universe and the Sabbaths. The blue background symbolizes the power of wisdom. The ruler of this card is Jupiter, the planet of growth and success, similar to what a moving wheel represents.

The Wheel of Fortune represents the circle of life which is beyond our control. There are going to be good times, and there’ll be bad. It implies to every person whether it’s a king or a pauper. When the times are right, you should learn to acknowledge how privileged you are and do not get complacent with your efforts. If the chips are down, you should not lose hope because the time changes. An upright Wheel of Fortune suggests that you should not just settle for what life has to offer; instead, you should put your hand up and go for more. A Wheel in the Tarot spread represents cause and effect. In an upright position, you are enjoying the fruits of your labor, but when the wheel is down, you are serving for all the wrongdoings. It symbolizes Karma. Despite universe keeps on changing, the strength to be at the top lies in the center, within you.
A reverse wheel is not a good sign. It means you’re suffering from bad luck and misfortunes. You need to understand that fate is beyond your control and you need to be very patient when things are not going your way. Stay focused on what you wish to achieve and remember the wheel keeps on rotating and times change.
The most prominent element of this Tarot are the wings, possessed by all four symbols at the corner. This represents freedom and pleasure. It is a sign that your partner is making you feel like never before. You don’t want it to end.
