General Meaning for the Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune is the number 10 card in the Major Arcana and it’s astrologically affiliated with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, opportunity, and success. The Wheel of Fortune reminds us that like the seasons, everything in life operates in cycles. One moment everything is difficult to achieve, and the next thing you know you’re in a position to receive.

When the Wheel of Fortune appears in a Tarot reading, it suggests that with concentration and a little meditation on your part, it can assist you with your intentions towards abundance. Though this is a card of luck and expansion, sometimes it can also point to adversity of some sort. It’s a wheel, so even if you’re facing difficulty, you also have the ability to turn it around, or go with the flow if that’s all you can do. In either case, it would be in your best interest to stay optimistic and trust that the Universe has your back.

The Wheel of Fortune in the Past/Yesterday Meaning

When the Wheel of Fortune is in the past position of a reading, it indicates a moment in time where you had to make a big decision in the past. Those changes may still be affecting you now such as moving, changing jobs, or even changing names. To pinpoint the changes you made that are most affecting you at present, see what other cards come up in the spread.

The Wheel of Fortune in the Present/Today Meaning

It’s great to see the Wheel of Fortune in the present position. If you’ve felt lost or pondered the next direction to take, the Wheel of Fortune is confirmation that you’ve found your answer. You can expect to see these changes take an almost immediate effect.

The Wheel of Fortune in the Future/Tomorrow Meaning

The Wheel of Fortune indicates that you’re ready to make some changes going forward. You’re envisioning those changes as having a positive effect on your life. If this was the reason you wanted a reading, then the Wheel of Fortune in the future position is giving you the answer.

Love and Relationships Meaning for the Wheel of Fortune


When the Wheel of Fortune turns up in a love reading, it looks like singles are favored over existing relationships. If you’re single, get ready to mingle. Accept invitations, get out, and be seen. The Wheel is turning in your favor for meeting like-minded, quality partners. Spread your wings and let the universal winds of change lead you in the right direction.


If you’re in an established relationship, there may be an uneasy feeling or lack of certainty in your current relationship. You may be worn out from the back and forth, up and down feeling or maybe you enjoy the excitement of not knowing what to expect next. Changing relationships call for changes in response. See if you can work it out, or not then choose the path that’s best for you.

It’s not all bad for couples though. If you’ve been with a partner for a long time, you already know how to weather the ups and downs. If things could be better, the Wheel of Fortune wants to help you turn it around.

Career Meaning for the Wheel of Fortune

If you’re looking for work and the Wheel of Fortune shows up in a career reading, rest assured that significant changes are coming your way. Luck finally turns your way and opens up some doors that may have previously been closed. Alternatively, this good fortune may even come to those who are currently working but have been hoping for a new opportunity.

If you’re already working your dream job, a period of ups and downs may be on the menu. The Wheel of Fortune is asking you to find balance as you may go from the “star of the moment” back to the student, and back again. Chin up and keep moving forward doing your best work. Also, be open to criticism from a higher up as you may learn something valuable, but also be sure to remind them of your accomplishments.

Financial Meaning for the Wheel of Fortune

In a financial reading, the Wheel of Fortune is a good sign. Your financial status is on the rise, especially if times have proven difficult of late. And just to balance things out, if you’ve been doing well financially, things may take a downward turn temporarily. You may see less coming in and more going out – good for you if you’ve prepared in advance. The Wheel assures you that nothing stays the same for long.
