The World

The World

Meaning

The meaning of The World card is that you are reaching a point in your day or situation where all things are truly coming full circle. In love, this card means that an engagement or new beginning is not possible, but inevitable. A marriage or proposal or a brand new step in your journey is here. The same applies in a work or career situation. Your work may take you somewhere out into the world, or connect you with foreign people or events, or you may take on a role with foreign matters. The four Fixed signs are present in this card: Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius. One of these Fixed zodiac signs could be key in your world in this situation as well. The message here is, stay committed and fixated on your goals like these signs do, and success is just around the corner. This is the end of a cycle and signifies the completion of one journey and the beginning of another all-new exciting one. When you see this card in your day, know that the world is definitely your oyster at this time! Everything you've been working for is about to happen. Enjoy it!

Symbolism

The World is one of the most exciting cards to see in any Tarot reading, and has very similar meanings to the Tarot card the Sun, but at a deeper and more philosophical level. The Tarot card also is very similar to the Wheel of Fortune card, but again, at a more profound level of cycles beginning and ending. Like the Wheel of Fortune card, this card shows symbols of the four Fixed Signs. This represents the four pillars that make for the foundation of a world of completion. A major cycle in your life is coming to an end, but a bright new exciting beginning is coming with it. Again we see the wreath of laurels of success on the head of the dancing figure in the middle of this card. This is the final destination of The Fool that began the journey of the first card in the Major Arcana. Success is not near, it is here! The figure in the card is dancing about her success, and celebrating it. Because this card shows The World, this card could also symbolize events happening in the world, or foreign connections or experiences in your day or reading when you see this card.
