Basic Tarot Story

From out of hiding comes the Fool, into the sunlight, as if being pulled up from some low, dark point on a wheel. It is time for a change. Staff in hand, he heads back out into the world, expecting nothing. But, strangely, things seem to happen to him as the hours go by, good things. Wandering by water wheel a woman offers him a drink in a golden chalice, and then urges him to keep the cup, just because she likes him; as he wanders by a windmill, he stops to watch a young man swinging a sword; when he expresses his admiration of the weapon, the young man presses it into his hand, insisting that he take it.

And finally, when he comes upon a rich merchant sitting in a wagon, right over one of the wheels, the man hands him a bag of money. "I like giving away money," explains the Merchant, "and I decided, just randomly, that the tenth person who walked past me today would get this money. You're the tenth." The Fool hardly thought he could still be surprised, but he is. It is as if everything good that he ever did in his life is being paid back to him, three-fold. All luck this day is his.

Basic Tarot Meaning

With Jupiter as its ruling planet, the Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. Almost every definition of this card indicates abundance, happiness, elevation, luck. A change that just happens, and brings with it great joy.

Thirteen's Observations

As much as the Tarot is about what a Querent can do to change their life or self, there are cards that admit that sometimes you just get lucky. This card can mean movement, change and evolution, but its primary meaning always seems to say that such changes will seem to come out of the blue, a stroke of good, unexpected fortune. The person you're reading for is going to get that money, that job, that promotion, that special person, that break they've been waiting for. Call it Karmic payback for all the good things they've done in life, destiny or just luck, but whatever lotteries are out there, large or small, they've just won one.


Wheel has no specific appearance, old or young, human or non-human, but always male. Wheel is the embodiment of fate, chance and karma, and so how "he" comes across to others depends upon that individual's life experiences.

The one exception to this is his pendant, which is a silver wagon wheel studded with small gems, and hangs from a silver chain about his neck. This is both an allusion to his name as well as his symbol, and is the one thing about "his" appearance that can be counted on to never change regardless of what he looks like on any given day.

For the purposes of RP, Wheel uses the Robin Wood tarot deck, which is published by Llewellyn Publishers, Inc. whenever she does readings for people.

Side note: if a reading is requested by a character, please note that the reading will go slow because of the time it takes to go through all the cards in the spread. To make up for this Wheel [as well as Strength and Misery] use five-card spreads for ease of use and simplicity.
