The reversed Wheel of Fortune
The reversed Wheel of Fortune represents that your luck and fortune will take a turn for the worst. You can see some unfavorable changes in your life that may make you helpless. Here, you can do two different things. Whether you sit idle and wait to change things or take actionable steps on your own and change the things to make your life better.
Further, when you start taking responsibility for your life and stop claiming others for any mishappenings in your life, you start making yourself better from that day. Try to learn from every situation of your life and implement that learning in the future.
The reversed Wheel teaches you to make changes in your life from time to time. When you try to change something for the first time, you may experience significant stress.
