Tarot deck interview help

Hello all!

I tried to post this earlier this morning, but somehow my flair got changed to the shtpost one.

I'm pretty new to tarot and I'm still trying to learn all the meanings of the cards without having to use a book or a guide. I usually do have a good idea of what the cards try to show me after having read the descriptions. Instead of choosing a card, I shuffle my deck and let the card fall out as the chosen card for the question, hence why I got 2 cards for the first question. I know not everyone finds use in a deck interview, but I wanted to try it just to see what it could tell me.

I did a deck interview by Little Red Tarot with my new deck, the Untamed Mystery Tarot by Ivy Feng from the Wheel of Fortune Tarot, and got the following cards:

Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic?

  • 10 of Pentacles Upright
  • The Star Upright
    • Giving moments to celebrate and follow me till the end of my life's journey while giving a sense of fulfillment. Giving regeneration and hope, making me trust and have faith in myself and everything around me on this journey.

What are your strengths as a deck?

  • 8 of Cups Upright
    • The creator has a slightly different interpretation of this card, as it stands for reaching everything that is required, everything that is dreamed of, and having emotional and psychic tranquility after heavy moments. Continue to move forward with the current (of the sea) and be rewarded and challenged in this journey. Never staying in one place.
    • Willingness to detach myself from others so that I can work on self-improvement, self-understanding and growth. Seeking excitement in the unknown while going on this new tarot journey.

What are your limits as a deck?

  • Wheel of Fortune Upright
    • The meaning of the card according to the creator: Upright keywords: Cycles, time, astrology, the bigger picture, revolution. Represents cycles of all kinds, its the wheel of birth, enlightenment, death, rebirth -cycles of the seasons, each sign of the zodiac, and the ages of existence. It is a reflection upon the world 'revolution' and its many forms, from a rotating wheel to an uprising. It brings together all 4 elements and animals from the suits to energize the wheel with elemental polarity. To understand the wheel, one must understand the nuances of daily life. The Wheel itself doesn't exist, it's simply a meditation on the fact that cycles don't adhere to any form of measurement. Astrology, the Tarot, religions, and even time itself are human-made constructs to contemplate the nature of the universes. There is no such thing as an accident, luck, or fortune. Everything and everyone has significance. Make your own choices on how to keep moving forward.
    • It is similar to the rider-wait meaning, however, I have trouble understanding how this would be a "weakness".

What are you here to teach me?

  • Queen of Wands Upright
    • It teaches me fierceness, courage, individualism, and focus. The deck is willing to stand by me and stand up for me.
    • Interestingly enough, the animal representing this suit and this card is a white rabbit, which is my favorite animal as I have a pet bunny of my own.

How can I best learn and collaborate with you?

  • Knight of Swords Upright
    • Don't become blinded by desires and keep an eye out for the difficulties that face me or the consequences they could bring. Become powerful while maintaining a balance of compassion and responsibility. I should sometimes stop to regain a steady perspective and clarity.

What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?

  • 8 of Pentacles Upright
    • It will help improve and hone my skills and potentially help me to master my skills when I put the work in to train these skills.

My main question is about the weakness giving me the Wheel of Fortune, but feel free to interpret the rest of the cards as well! I really would appreciate the help.
