The Wheel of Fortune Tarot Upright: What Does It Mean?

Sharing is caring!

The Wheel of Fortune upright tarot card represents a fork in the road and the need to see these turning points and opportunities for growth and personal fulfillment.

If you haven’t had luck on your side recently then this could very will be changing soon for the better.

The Wheel of Fortune Upright

We all have our destiny in life. You know – the place that we wish to arrive safely. What that is to you is completely different than someone else. Whether you wish to achieve a little or a lot is completely up to you.

Sometimes will have some very important choices to make and the consequences are quite real. One path could be a mediocre life and the other could be a life full of joy, experiences and success.

By knowing when these forks will come and making the right decision will ultimately lead you to become a better individual. The type that understands the laws of karma as well as the privilege of choice in our western world.

Card meaning

The Wheel of Fortune Upright is a ‘Yes’ Tarot card. As with many of our psychic tarot card readings, we’ve used the Rider Waite series to derive our meanings.

Card reading of The Wheel of Fortune Upright
The Wheel of Fortune Upright meaning

We see here the giant wheel with several figures illustrated on the edges. On the face of the wheel are four letters from the Hebrew language:

  • Y = Yod
  • H = Heh
  • V = Vau
  • H = Heh

It’s quite rare to see letters of any type on any tarot card. There is also TORA which is short for Tarot. Tora itself means law or essentially the dynamic laws of the universe as a symbol of divine universal alchemy. In addition we have several animals:

  • The Sphinx represents wisdom and power
  • The Anubis represents who welcomes souls to the underworld
  • The Snake represents the lifeforce of the physical world

In addition there are 4 signs of the zodiac:

  • Aquarius the angel
  • Scorpio the eagle
  • Leo the lion
  • Taurus the bull

Each respectfully holds the torah which represents wisdom while they have their foundations in stability among the movement and change of the wheel.

In no other tarot card do we see so much meaning, variations of definitions and somewhat confusion, yet we must always realize the universe has a plan for all of us.

A new change

The reversed card represents ebbs and flows while the upright card is geared towards turning points. You may soon be charging like Taurus the bull into a new direction through both intuition and guidance from the universe.

The Wheel of Fortune upright is best suited towards those who enjoy spontanaviety and new promised lands. If you have been tired of the same dailiy ritual, then this will be a welcome change for you.

Quite significant changes can be overwhelming for those who prefer total stability. After all, you can’t change course once you have committed towards a new pathway. Instead, we must surrendeder and accept the reality of the situation.

If you do struggle then it’s best to use the tools that you have. Seek out spiritual masters and authors in the physical world as well as those in the non-physical such as metaphysical energy and angels of healing. Their divine light has massive influence to help us through the dark times.

Yet no matter who you are – the one in control or the one being taken along for a ride – the universe will carry you all the way. If you could choose one emotion then choose optimism. After all, this is all happening for a reason.

Going forward

This is one of those times that you should really ‘go with the flow’ in this situation. Use this time to see how you can grow as an individual and create new experiences, friendships and ultimately more light and love into your life.

You’ve reached a turning point in life which will take you to new frontiers. It’s time to trust the process.
