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.
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
