Thanks for the input, Frannie! Your description does fit with what I've often come across, too.
It's just that the "out of your control"-ness seems in contrast with the 4 figures calmly studying from books on the Rider-Waite card... To me, the WOF as Outcome suggests that if the subject can concentrate and learn enough about whatever question the spread is regarding, they could then turn the Wheel in a desired direction - But I haven't any solid examples of this occurring. (I'm a Tarot Newbie, though; haven't that many reading results to go by - Hence the post...
As I examine it, the Wheel Of Fortune also has an "up in the air" feeling (maybe it's all of those clouds in the Rider Waite card), almost like whatever the question is about has yet to be determined..? Or maybe the clouds/sky and apparently studying figures show a mental, "Air" aspect to this card - as in how well the subject has studied/needs to study in regards to the question at hand, to bring about a positive result..?
Anyone have specific events to share that came about after a WOF as Outcome reading, and whether or not it seemed of the subject's control..?
