The Wheel of Fortune - Major Arcana Card #10

Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:

X. The Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune card carries a chance of fate and opportune surprise, symbolized within the temporal wheel surrounded by four steadfast zodiac sings. You’ve been presented with a fortune, an unexpected turn of events over which you have a surprisingly small amount of control over. It is a life-giving gift that surpasses logic; it is inevitable change, and the choice to accept what is offered. Inverted, The Wheel turns with a quirk of fate, moving outside of expected karma. To the right or left, the card reflects differing stages in melding with the patterns and rhythms of the world. Regardless of position, The Wheel asserts: to everything, there is a season.

Suggested prompts:

upright: the turning of fortune; fate; chance

right: an odd surprise; approaching change

left: awkward dance with life’s patterns; learning

reversed: maladjustment; unexpected occurrence
