10 - The Wheel of Fortune Tarot Card

The Wheel of Fortune is tarot card number 10, although it is the 11th card of the Major Arcana because the 1st of the 22 Major Arcana cards is number 0 (The Fool).

The Wheel of Fortune is a welcome, positive card.

It is also known as the 'Wheel of Life' and the 'Wheel of Destiny'. The wheel of fortune in the tarot deck is not the type of wheel found in some casinos, in which one wins or loses on the turn of the wheel. Instead, it represents the changing of the seasons, of our stages or life, ideas, energies, and opportunities.

The Wheel of Fortune tarot card encompasses the notion that:

"What goes around, comes around."

The Wheel of Fortune continues to turn, giving us fresh opportunities to learn old lessons (not yet mastered), and also to enjoy new challenges. As old problems move away from us we are offered new possibilities for development, growth, and satisfaction.
