When the World appears in your tarot card reading, it signifies completion or accomplishment in some aspect of your life, just like the Nine of Cups. It is also an indicator of success, satisfaction, and achievement. It can also mean travel, or a journey.
On the World tarot card, you will see an image of a dancing figure that seems to be in a very festive mood. She is celebrating the completion of her journey and the promise of a new beginning.
She holds a baton in her hands, symbolizing evolution and balance. A green wreath encloses her, representing success, achievement, accomplishment, and triumph.
The wreath is bound by the red ribbons of eternity, symbolizing the limitless rewards of continuous self-improvement and changing the lives of the people around you.
The laurel wreath symbolizes the light of enlightenment or universal consciousness.
The World is ruled by the planet Saturn, which represents time.
When the World shows up in your reading, your efforts are finally being rewarded, or you have come to the end of a journey, or you have concluded a significant life cycle. You have come out stronger and wiser from the hardship and the challenge, and now you are experienced about life more than you ever were.
You are now feeling a sense of closure, of achievement, and of fulfillment for coming to the end of a project you have been working on for the past months, or for coming full circle in your career.
The World can represent a significant life event, like a graduation, the birth of a child, a marriage, or the realization of a dream or a desire. Expect celebration and well-deserved praise for all your hard work and efforts.
You can see everything coming together, and you can feel that you are finally at the right place and at the right time, doing just the thing that you have visualized yourself doing. You can finally see and understand how the entire system works, and just how you and your role figure in the entire process.
You are coming from a wonderful place of love, understanding, and experience, and you are more than ready to impart this to others.
The World is the harbinger of fresh starts and new beginnings after one thing in your life ends, similarly to what the Page of Cups and Eight of Cups symbolize.
It can represent an opportunity to travel, like an extended overseas trip for work, study, or pleasure. Wherever you go, expect to learn new realities and to be touched by the lives of new people you meet and who open their doors for you.
With the World tarot card, the whole world is your oyster. Good fortune is on your side and the universe will help bring everything together for you. Things are looking up, and when opportunities present themselves, you have to get up and get what you want.
The World is a very positive and personal card. It tells you to let yourself shine and delight in all the things that you have accomplished. Pause for a while to enjoy them and celebrate them, knowing that with every end comes another beginning.
The World Tarot and Love
When you are in love or in a relationship, the World indicates that you are on the right track. You are at that point where things are about to get serious. Usually, this marks the time when you and your man will finally move in together, or purchase a house, or get married, or have a baby.
The World sums up all the positive and beautiful things about your partner and your relationship. It simply means that everything is coming together in the romance department. It means an end to hurts and bad feelings, and the beginning of something new and wonderful.
The World card also represents completion and satisfaction. For the single ladies who feel alone and lonely, this is a good sign that you are emotionally prepared to move forward to a new phase in your romantic life.
You no longer break down in tears whenever you hear that Sam Smith song. And you can watch The Notebook without feeling bitter or murderous. A weight has been lifted, and now you feel light enough to explore.
If you and your man have already ended things, the World indicates that you are definitely ready to meet new people and be in a relationship again. You are happy and free at last!
If you are traveling, the World signifies that you can meet someone special while doing so. Don’t be afraid to hang out longer than usual by the pool or the coffee shop.
Go out and be seen. Keep your eyes peeled and wear that gorgeous smile on your face. You never know who’s looking!
The World Tarot and Money
The World brings great news of money and wealth. You will finally reap the rewards of all your hard work. If you have been looking for a job, you will finally receive good news.
If money flow has been weak and low, the World is a good sign that all that is about to change. You will soon be flush again and can rest easy for a while.
Still, it’s not a good time to take risks. Don’t be a one day millionaire. Instead, focus your efforts on making sure that that money is here to stay.
The World Tarot’s Meaning for the Future
In the future position, the World tells you the need to keep your dreams alive. This is the green light that you need to do all things necessary to make the dream into a reality.
The World can signify the end of a long and oftentimes tough journey, but it also signifies things coming together to ensure your happiness, success, fulfillment, and absolute contentment.
Without a doubt, the World is a promise of good things, and an even better life.
My Final Thoughts on the World Tarot
The World is a symbol of completion. You’ve worked your ass off and you’re reaching the finish line. Don’t even think of quitting now! Instead, use your second wind to see it through and cross that finish line.
Don’t be afraid to get your well-deserved rest and relaxation. Go on a trip with your friends and family. Buy yourself something that you really love.
Bask in the praise of other people, but don’t let it get into your head. Acknowledge yourself for doing a great job, and use this as your inspiration when you start a brand new journey.
The World wants you to look at your life and see how far you’ve come. At this point in your life, can you say that you are finally reaping the rewards of your hard work? Can you envision yourself finally enjoying the fruits of your labor? Do you believe that things are coming together for you?
