On its own, the verb
まわ
る means 'revolve'. It is commonly used as the second half of compound verbs to indicate the idea of performing various actions in a sequence or a loop. In English this can often be translated neatly with the expression 'go around', which carries both the literal meaning 'revolve' and the more figurative meaning of repeating something while moving around.
