Wheel of Fortune as Feelings Tarot Card Meaning Sibyl Tarot

The Wheel of Fortune is the card of luck, karma, and life cycles. A giant wheel turns, showing that life is cyclical. What comes up must come down, and what is down will soon be on its way up. In the corners of the Wheel of Fortune are four winged creatures, each corresponding with the four fixed signs of the Zodiac: Aquarius as the angel, Scorpio as the eagle, Leo as the lion, and Taurus as the bull. Though life turns, there is always stability and wisdom amidst the movement. 

The Wheel of Fortune is a reminder that the wheel of life and love is always turning. Life is constantly changing. If you are going through a hard time now, know that you may be at the bottom of a cycle. Similarly, if things are going well for you, appreciate what you have in this moment. Practice loving kindness, no matter what. As the saying says, “What goes around, comes around.” 

Upright Wheel of Fortune as Feelings

If you are asking about how someone feels about you, and you draw the Wheel of Fortune, it means that they currently feel great about you. They feel lucky to have met you. They feel some kind of karmic connection with you, as if the two of you are fated. It’s possible that they feel that you are meant to be.  

That being said, the Wheel of Fortune is all about change, and this person’s feelings are similarly a moving target. While they may feel good about you now, they are still at a stage where they are observing and recalculating. This person’s feelings can be all over the place, so it’s important that you take their current feelings with a grain of salt. True love is shown through consistent actions over time, not a fleeting feeling.  

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Wheel of Fortune as feelings is a good sign. This person feels positively about you. They may feel a karmic connection with you. You’ve rocked their world, and they are eager to see where this may lead. Because your relationship is new, it’s important to know that their feelings are still mutable and changing. Though their initial feeling is very positive, they are still getting to know you. Solid relationships are built through consistent experiences over time. Don’t be afraid to take your time to build trust. 

For existing relationships, the Wheel of Fortune indicates that this person’s feelings toward you are changing in a more positive direction. Life is full of unexpected changes, and love is no different. There may be great changes going on in your relationship, and they may be unexpected, but you are adaptable. Your partner sees this, and they feel very lucky to be with you. A true partner is someone who can go through life with you, taking in the good and the bad. 

If you are asking about an old flame or an ex’s feelings about you, the Wheel of Fortune indicates that they do still have positive feelings for you from time to time. At one moment, they feel that you were meant to be together–in the next moment, they may not be as sure. While a reconciliation is certainly in the cards for you two, they need to sort out their hot and cold energy before being ready for a recommitment. And that’s true, no matter how amazing your chemistry is together.   

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Wheel of Fortune as feelings indicates that they’re currently feeling a “yes.” Their outlook on commitment is mostly positive. However, at the same time, they’re up in the air about what a concrete future looks like together. Even though they certainly feel lucky to know you, and even that you two are fated in some way, their feelings are unpredictable and change from moment to moment. Ask yourself what it is the two of you need to do to get your relationship onto solid ground. Change is certainly a huge part of life, but stability is important as well.

Reversed Wheel of Fortune as Feelings

When the Wheel of Fortune is reversed, it indicates feeling disconnected. Just as the upright Wheel of Fortune is a sign of a karmic connection, the reversed Wheel of Fortune is the opposite. Even if you are perfectly suited on paper, the emotional “feeling” may just be missing. You can seek out and torment yourself over why this is, or simply accept that this is a part of life. Just as we connect with some, we don’t with others. 

Additionally, the Wheel of Fortune reversed means that this person feels stuck. Perhaps they are experiencing the same cycles with you, over and over again. These cycles can be emotional and behavioral cycles. Perhaps the two of you have a push-pull dynamic. Just as you are starting to become close, someone pulls away out of a fear of intimacy, leading the other to chase. Without addressing the root issue, it will continue in a vicious cycle. 

The Wheel of Fortune reversed also tells us that a person feels that this cycle is coming to an end. Necessary change is coming. All things in life must end at some point. That’s true whether we’re talking about relationships, jobs, or even life itself. When we accept this, rather than fight against it, we give ourselves the opportunity to find a new beginning.

For singles and those in new relationships, the Wheel of Fortune reversed is a sign of feeling a lack of karmic connection. The two of you may be perfect on paper, but something is missing on an emotional level. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, the truth is that you may not be compatible or suited for someone. Call it “fate,” “karma,” “destiny,” or what you will. That being said, this is not a negative thing! When one door closes, another opens. This is an opportunity for you to find someone who does feel a soul connection with you. You deserve nothing less. 

For those in committed relationships, the Wheel of Fortune reversed is a sign of feeling stuck and disconnected. Not everything is going well right now, but it may or may not have something to do with you. Ask yourself, is there some external factor that is affecting your relationship right now? If so, you may have to accept it with patience and simply wait for it to pass, rather than attempting to control the situation. Life comes in cycles both good and bad. On the other hand, if you do sense that the blocker is personal, the best thing you can do is communicate openly about your needs. 

If you are asking about an ex’s feelings about you, the Wheel of Fortune reversed means that they feel that your relationship has come to a close. When you were together, your relationship was often stuck in the same cycles and emotional patterns. You can both be good people, but not meant for each other. Sometimes the best thing is to move on. Reconciliation is not in the cards right now. 

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Wheel of Fortune reversed indicates a no. This person feels stuck, as if the wheel has stopped turning for them. This is a time to reassess your relationship honestly. What is your communication like? What do each of you want as individuals and as a couple? Are you truly aligned on your values and on your life path? Try as hard as you both might, this may be a case where the cycle is over.

For relationships and feelings, the Wheel of Fortune reveals the cyclical and karmic nature of love and life. It reminds us to practice loving kindness, because “what goes around, comes around.” If we lean into the Wheel’s true nature, we will be more appreciative of the good times we have, and also understanding that the bad times will pass. Knowing this, you will be a more compassionate and empathetic partner, inviting positive energy into your life.
