What does the Wheel of Fortune mean?

May 30, 2016

Wheel of Fortune -- Tarot of the MastersHere is a pithy meaning for the Wheel of Fortune:

Why does the same shit keep happening?
Here’s the reason:
Our unconscious minds keep replaying unresolved traumas in hopes that we can finally “get it right.”

I got this pithy meaning, which I’ve associated with the Wheel of Fortune, from the following quotes that I found in an article titled, “It Didn’t Start With You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are.

Traumatic reenactment, or “repetition compulsion,” as Freud coined it, is an attempt of the unconscious to replay what’s unresolved, so we can “get it right.”

Carl Jung also believed that what remains unconscious does not dissolve, but rather resurfaces in our lives [and we see it] as fate or fortune.


Note: Each of these pithy Tarot meanings is just one facet of its card. Find more of them on my Card Meanings page.  Also, get my Pithy Tarot eBook or the FREE app that uses my pithy Tarot meanings … and LIKE my Pithy Tarot Facebook page!
