The Wheel of Fortune tarot card shows a round image that looks like a compass surrounded by four figures- an angel, a winged lion, an eagle, and winged bull. Each of these corresponds to the four elements and the four fixed signs. The angel is Aquarius and air. The winged lion is Leo and fire. The eagle is Scorpio and water. The winged bull is Taurus and earth. Consider this wheel the “wheel of life” and pointing to birth, life, death, and rebirth in the physical, the karmic, and the psychic sense. The image of a wheel reflects continuous change, so it could mean you’ll be saying hello to better days or you’ll have to bid goodbye to luck and rely on hard work!

As a reverse tarot card, the Wheel of Fortune will teach you life’s lessons whether or not you’re ready.
