The Wheel of Fortune is a Wheel of the World as well, and almost a medieval torture instrument that an untold number of people keep riding through life. Four (even eight) figures ride the Wheel in the old Italian tarots. The one to the left says "I will reign", the one at the top says "I reign", the one to the right says "I have reigned", and the final figure, crushed below the wheel, says "I am without reign". The underlying, Italian tarot idea captures dominant troubles and tragedies of human living with its passions and struggles.
A blindfolded Fortuna (Fortune) stands in the middle, as luck in life increases and next dwindles, as the case may be. The king at the top has donkey ears, indicating vanity and folly.
In the tarot de Marseille, Fortuna and the bottom figure are both omitted.

To implement improvements, one should not increase one's problems by assuming too much wrong responsibility.
The zany soon realise they are not getting nearer to genuine glory, applause, recognition, family, or a sound home life,
Simple telling may not help slaves of ambitions and passions
The lone wolf must realise that many friends and acquaintances in such an environment are hardly helpful at all.
They slowly begin to see that sheer pomp and caprice lead astray , even though initially found to think, "But haven't we got fun!"
As they move along, they should learn to adhere to scientific ideas for betterment, and get fond of progress and technical outfit that helps.
To live up to standards should talk for these people.
Simply, most of all, won't always do full well.
You cannot tell any of these "secret slimmers" how to do anything.
Telling a story may not fit in in such a work environment, and being the first to let marked slaves know their eagernes takes them astray, may hardly be welcome.
Getting into a shady deal as a result of trickery may be very dangerous business.
One should go for truth and tall awareness against a limiting environment
They who seem to be of the magnetic, individualistic breed, should profit from avoiding an essentially limiting, hectic and frantic pace.
Being concise, clear and unpredictable might breed neuroses.
One should go for truth and awareness against the limiting environment. ◇
Impress by simple and candid telling anyhow against the lot of ambition victims or half-slaves.
