The World Upright Draw Meaning

There are a couple of key symbols in many versions of The World card that holds importance. The first is the infinity symbol, meaning endless, renewable energy. On the card, the infinity symbol notes the immortality of the human spirit. We may not remember the next life or the previous life, but our soul undergoes a continuous transformation. We are all connected, and we are all infinite. The Wreath is the second symbol to pay attention to. Since ancient times, a laurel wreath has been a sign of victory. Laurels are also for protection, peace, and purity. Therefore, drawing the World from the Tarot deck is a sure sign that you will be a victor or are a victor in this moment of your life.

All of your achievements will certainly be garnering you a lot of praise. If you aren’t receiving any, then this is the time to get out and enjoy your victories alone. Do something astounding because you’ve earned it!

The World also comes at a time in your life when you have gained an understanding and appreciation for where you belong in a specific environment. You have come to accept your role, and you know where your ‘niche’ is. You may have developed a sense of unity with the world around you, and thus everything is starting to fall into place.

The World may herald that you are at the end of a cycle and are about to begin again as The Fool shortly. Taking time to reflect on all that you have achieved at this time is wise. As with anything, the better we get the more challenges we are going to face.

The World In Love and Relationships

Rather than finding love, find yourself abroad. See the world. As you set your sights on new locales, you will stumble upon someone who will resonate with you deeply. Though this may not always be “love,” you will see the world from a new perspective. On the other hand, if you have been in a long-term relationship, chances are that it will be moving onto the next level, such as marriage. When The World appears, relationships become extremely fruitful, so don’t be afraid to talk to strangers for once.

The World can also signify moving the family into a new home or being aware of the state that your relationships are in. Healthy environments are beneficial to all relationships.

The World In Career And Finances

In a work reading, The World often means completion, a raise, or promotion. It can also mean that you may be doing too much work and gaining very little recognition. Don’t shy away from tooting your own horn a little. Make your efforts known. Celebrate the triumphs, no matter how small. No one should overlook your accomplishments as a dedicated worker, and if they do, then perhaps you should refocus yourself elsewhere.

Sometimes this means volunteering in a foreign country or spending your time doing something outside your realm of expertise. What happens out of that may lead to some incredible epiphanies. Traveling for work to a different part of the world is also connected to this card.

Besides, financially speaking, The World shows you’ll have a little extra money coming your way to overcome any money issues. However, don’t forget the lessons learned. Save and spend your money wisely!

The World Reverse Draw Meaning

Where the upright World signifies the completion of a journey, the reversed reveals that while you’re on the road to the destination, you aren’t taking the proper steps to get there. In fact, you may be trying to create shortcuts that are only going to result in feelings of unfulfillment. Do not be afraid of the work that is in front of you, because the journey to get there is worth it. The sense of attainment, in the end, is worth the long haul. Also, if you have lost focus on the goal, now is the time to get back on track. Simply think about how wonderful it will be to finally reach your goal after all this time.

Second, The World reversed can mean that you’re lacking closure. Something happened in your life that has curtailed your efforts to begin anew. As you struggle to overcome something from the past, you’re giving up on the future. Look to the other cards in your reading to identify what has to be done to gain closure so you can move on with your life.

The World Reverse Draw Love and Relationships

You likely have unfinished business in a relationship stopping you from moving on and allowing a new chapter to start. What are you getting out of this connection that is keeping you down? Time to have a realistic conversation with yourself and know that there is much more out there if you just let the past go. Even if it is just for now.

The World Reverse Draw Career and Finances

Change is going to happen but this looks like it is going to be messy. Try not to burn too many bridges in the process of figuring things out for yourself. You are likely not that enthusiastic about your work at the moment anyway so it may be the universe saying it is time to move on to bigger and better things.

Understanding the Rider Waite Imagery For The World

The World card is often depicted as a beautiful dancing figure, suspended in the middle of the universe (shaped like a yoni). The World is not only the end of a cycle, but it is also the completion of a long journey. The dancer looks outward, and the wreath and red ribbons encircling the feminine form suggest victory, success, and positivity. The four fixed signs of the zodiac look on with books of worldly knowledge open to them. This is a card of seasons, cycles, the circle of life, and the accumulated, priceless, and sometimes painful knowledge that our life experiences give us.

The Muse of Tarot For The World

Tarot Muses are the divine creative source personified. They are invoked to provide support and space for your readings and lend their special gifts in realm of Tarot magic.
