MAJOR ARCANA NUMBER 10
The Wheel of Fortune represents the aspect of life that is directed by forces and events
you may not understand or even be aware of. In short, the card deals with
chance — those occurrences that manage to alter even the most
structured of lives and usurp man’s best-laid plans.
While the effects of the Wheel are unpredictable, the outcome is always some form of
change — for better or worse. The path through life is never a smooth ride
down a perfectly straight highway. Sometimes you may experience hairpin turns
or complete reversals of direction. The Wheel of Fortune is a strong
reminder that despite your plans, the Universe has its own agenda from which you cannot escape.
In the reversed position, the Wheel of Fortune card signifies unexpected bad luck,
unforeseen events, being out of control and failure.
