From the Rider-Waite deck

It was a bit disappointing to draw this card again so soon, but I tried to think what I missed about it the other day.

The 10s of each suit are all about completion and fulfilment, while the Aces (and the Magician) – their numerological counterpart – stand for beginnings and the male, active creative impulse.

So the Wheel of Fortune is about major life transitions, which are difficult and hold a lot of grief, as we leave old ways of being behind. But they are necessary for our growth.

Reversed, a resistance to that change, a clinging to the past, ‘stuckness.’
