The World holds number 20, and it is the twenty-first Tarot Card of the Major Arcana cards.
The World Tarot Card, in its core, usually represents a cycle is completed and coming to an end. There are fresh new beginnings ahead, closing a book to start another. The World card’s planetary ruler is planet Saturn.
The World Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawing, The World may come up straight, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers like to read reversed tarot cards.
Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic reader conducts their readings, because a tarot card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
The World card would represent:
|Integrating into a new circle||Feeling whole|
|Bringing all the parts together||Reaching a dynamic balance|
|Abundance and prosperity||Dreams coming true|
|Achieving your hearts desires||Healing|
|Using your natural gifts||Counting your blessingsy|
|Finding contentment||Triumph and completion y|
In a reverse position, The World would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Stuck in an eternal cycle||Reaching a stagnant phase|
|Having unfinished business||Lack of success|
|Disappointments||Things falling apart or not moving|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If The World sits in a horizontal position, it advises you to take matters in your own hands and keeping moving.
The moment to close a big cycle is approaching. It can be about committing to marriage, which completes the cycle of being single or dating, or it can be about graduating and going out in the world. It can be about moving to another country for a job or for studying purposes.
Whatever it is, the date is approaching, so you should pull yourself together and finish your tasks in time, so everything flows easily. Now it is not the time to procrastinate or be lazy. It is a moment that will define the years to come.
The World – One card pull [Yes or No]
One Card Readings are for when you need a fast, straight to the point answer, you wish not to see the future events or the past events. You just need a specific answer to the question for a present situation that is bothering you.
You shuffle the cards, then choose only One Card, or you read the One Card that falls out while you are shuffling. Whichever method you use to pull the card, listed below are some of the questions and answers you may get when you pull The World.
Yes or No Answer
Upright Position: If you pull the card in an upright position, it means Yes.
Reversed Position: If you pull the card in a reversed position, it means No.
The World – Love and Relationships
The World signifies that your relationships or your life have reached a point where you are about to commit and settle for a family. You have gradually worked, invested, and came to this point in your life. If your partner is the one for you, or so you are sure of, then you should start talking about committing to each other.
Maybe you want it to be a surprise, either way, you should prepare for a major cycle to close and another one to start for you. It can also foretell that your current partner is the one you are going to marry.
How someone sees you or feels about you?
The answer would be they see you as someone who is everything they have dreamt of. They may feel like a whole completed person with you, and they may want to take your relationship to a commitment or have children with you. If you are older, it may indicate that your partner is fulfilled and content. He or she thinks they have made all the right choices in life with you, and they could not have chosen a better person than you to walk with them their whole life.
Just starting dating?
If you have just started dating a new person, The World may indicate that your date sees you as someone who is fulfilled and content with themselves. You give them the impression that you have no space in you or no negative thoughts. You truly know who you are and what you want, and this resonates well into the other person. This card also indicates that you may have many dates or suitors, so take your time to decide which one is right for you.
What not to do?
In terms of what not to do, it would advise you not to close the door in the face of someone that you still care about and who always puts effort into the relationship. It advises you to be careful with your decisions because, in a relationship that has years over its shoulders, passionate love has its ups and downs.
So if you feel like you have fallen out of love, or you are not in love anymore, you should consider if you still care and love this person. Being in love and loving someone are not the same thing, and once you understand this, you will be able to see the relationship in a different light and know what you need to do.
Reverse Position (Love and Relationships)
If you pull The World, reversed indicates that your relationship may have been stuck in a place for a long time, and you both may be contemplating if this is still the right relationship for you or if you should move on. You are letting things slide between you, and you are not willing to put in the effort to make the relationship work anymore.
Maybe you feel like you have fallen out of love with each other, or the partner that you once thought was the whole world for you. It is not anymore. It can also indicate that a relationship you did not want to end is long dead now.
The World – Finance, Business and Career
In business and career, The World is a card that indicates you are going to reap off the benefits and advantages you have earned for yourself. It suggests the time has come for you to get the promotion you deserve, the dream job you have always wanted, and the financial stability you have ever worked for.
It signifies that you feel fulfilled with your job and your career advancements. Regarding finances, it indicates that the hard times you have gone through are over, and now you are enjoying the luxury you have created for yourself and your family.
What not to do?
The World would advise you not to be afraid of making mistakes. You should not settle for a situation you are not happy in just because you think you can’t get it any better. Sure, you may have faced many refusals, but lots of successful businessmen and businesswomen of today have encountered too, but they chose not to give up, and so should you.
Your best opportunity may be waiting just around the corner if you keep looking for it, and the ones that passed or you get refused for may not have been the best ones for you or what you need right now, even if they have looked the part.
Reverse Position (Business and Finance)
In this case, it could indicate that you may be working hard, but you have not reached the goals you have set for yourself. You may feel down and unable to make a place for yourself in the world because of the losses and shortcomings you have suffered.
As a result, you may have let yourself be behind and not make any more moves towards your dreams. Regarding finances, it indicates that your finances have become stagnant. You don’t seem to be able to make more money, no matter how many hustles you take upon. The thing is that maybe you don’t invest enough time in them, and you may be expecting overnight success, so you give up pretty soon.
The World – Timing
When will something happen answer?
If it is a question that involves around the timing of an event and you pull The World, it foretells that the event you are asking about will happen around wintertime, or you may experience delays and face many trials before getting what you want.
The World – The Message Answer
Sometimes, we don’t have a specific question. We just want to know how our day will look like, or how we should approach the day ahead. This reading is best performed in the morning, so you form an idea of what that day will bring you.
The World would foretell a day when you may close a significant chapter in your life, such as graduation, seizing the right opportunity, or making a significant decision that will alter your life. It may also indicate that you will feel completed and satisfied with your current situation.
If you pull The World in reverse, it indicates a day when you may feel stuck in your routine and your negative thinking. It can suggest that you may let yourself feel down and decide to allow whatever happens to happen because you don’t think in your power to make any changes.
The World – Cards Combinations
That’s why it is essential to have a look at how The World communicates with the other tarot cards. Taking into account, there are 78 tarot cards in a deck. We will have a look at how The World would be interpreted and affect the outcome of the reading in the Light of Suits.
Interaction with the Cup Suits
The Cup Suits represent emotions, feelings, relationships, and contract-ships. This suit is associated with the Water element. If we were to draw The World along with the Cup Suits, this is a spread that indicates you have found our closed circle, and you don’t need to add more people into it. You are quite content with your close people, and you feel completed and supported by them. You may have gone through many trials and betrayals that now your close people are few.
Interaction with the Pentacles Suits
The World, along with another card of the Pentacles Suit, would foretell financial fulfillment. This spread indicates that all the trials you have gone through and the setbacks you have experienced have served to bring you to this point where you have everything you have ever wanted in terms of your career, job, and financial status. It is the ultimate goal you have put for yourself, and you have finally reached.
Interaction with the Swords Suits
The Swords Suit, along with The World, is also an interesting drawing. The Swords Suit has a reputation of a negative suit. This spread would indicate that all the trauma, heartaches, and negative experiences were there to teach you a lesson, but it will all be over for good. It may have lasted for a long time and has exhausted you. However, it won’t last forever. You were closing the book on the past and heal your issues. Now it is time for the fresh new beginnings to take place. You may be a completely different person coming out of this storm.
Interaction with the Wands Suits
The World and the Wands Suit is a combination that foretells a new path that is entirely different and will serve completely different experiences for you. For example, if you choose to study abroad and create a life in another country, it means that you are living your old life behind and embracing new experiences ahead. It will help shape you into another person. You cannot go back to how you lived before. It can also indicate that the trivia of taking different decisions and jumping from one opportunity to another has come to an end because now you are where you want to be.
Overall, The World, either by itself or pulled in a tarot card draw, is a card of ending big cycles that have defined your life and finding contentment in the completion of that part of your life to begin a new one.
