High arcan Death and high arcan Wheel of Fortune and high arcan Fool combination - complete and absolute change from one path to another.
Death tarot card

Card 1 - Death

Here, we see Death riding a beautiful white horse while holding up a black flag with a white pattern. It is portrayed as a living skeleton, the bones being the only part of the human body existing after death. He wears armor, which gives him his invincibility - signaling that no one can destroy Death. The white horse that he rides stands for purity, as Death purifies everyone. Beneath him, all classes of humans lie in the dirt - a king, and a pauper, meant to remind us that death does not differentiate between class, race, gender. 

Associations:

Death combinations
Due to the meaning this is one of the easiest cards to read in combinations, so there are too many to list here. When reading a simple line, or string of cards in a progression, the card preceding Death would show what is coming to an end. Look to the following cards to see where it leads, in particular, watch for the new beginnings the Aces would bring.

Wheel of Fortune tarot card

Card 2 - Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune is one of the most highly symbolic cards in the deck, filled with signs that each have its own meaning. At the center of the card, lies a giant wheel, covered in esoteric symbols. There are different creatures that surround the wheel; the angel, the eagle, the bull and the lion. They are related to four fixed signs in the zodiac - leo, taurus, scorpio and aquarius. These four animals are also representatives for the four evangelists in Christian traditions, which is perhaps the reason that they are all adorned with wings. The books that each of the creatures hold represents the Torah which communicates wisdom and self-understanding. The snake indicates the act of descending into material world. On the wheel itself, rides a sphinx that sits at the top, and what appears to be either a devil, or Anubis himself arising at the bottom. These two Egyptian figures are representative of both the wisdom of the gods and kings (in the case of the sphinx) and the underworld (Anubis). They are rotating forever, in a cycle, and suggests that as one comes up, the other goes down.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
 Together with multiple sevens in the reading indicates a cycle change. Similar characteristics, although different meanings, are found with Death and The Tower as they all bring an element of change of an external nature (usually outside of our control).

Opposing or contradictory cards:
nbsp;Hanging Man and Two of Swords (no movement) Four of Pentacles (risk-averse, caution)

Wheel of Fortune combinations
The order of the cards would be important when reading in a simple line, for instance The Tower to Wheel of Fortune could show a turnaround in circumstances such as a blessing in disguise or bounce back from something initially perceived as a catastrophe. However, luck wouldn’t be running on your side if this order were switched (Wheel to The Tower).  With marriage cards it may show a ‘fortunate’ match, or the changing fortunes and circumstances in the lives of those involved due to the pairing.

Fool tarot card

Card 3 - Fool

The Fool depicts a youth walking joyfully into the world. He is taking his first steps, and he is exuberant, joyful, excited. He carries nothing with him except a small sack, caring nothing for the possible dangers that lie in his path. Indeed, he is soon to encounter the first of these possible dangers, for if he takes just a step more, he he topple over the cliff that he is reaching. But this doesn't seem to concern him - we are unsure whether he is just naive or simply unaware. The dog at his heels barks at him in warning, and if he does not become more aware of his surroundings soon, he may never see all the adventures that he dreams of encountering.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Watch for Aces, which also signify new beginnings and strengthen the meaning. If all four Aces appear with The Fool (Life Spread and Anchor) it shows a completely new lifestyle - all new beginnings across the board.

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Death (endings) Hierophant (structure and convention).

Fool combinations
When The Fool precedes another card try inserting “new and unexpected” before the interpretation of the following card as you start to explore the ‘flavour’ and atmosphere of possible meanings. The Fool is normally experienced with an element of surprise.
