What Is the World Tarot Meaning?
Are you wondering what is the World Tarot meaning? Rest assured that this is a great card to have in your reading.
Before going into the specifics below, I will already share a few general meanings of the card, so that you get a feel of its symbolism.
It may be that you’ve had a very successful project, or that you are involved in a very fulfilling relationship.
Whatever it is, the World shows that in one way or another you are closed to making your dreams come true, in the area of your life the reading is about.
It usually indicates the successful completion of something. If you’re not there yet, rest assured that you will not have to wait too much.
The World can also indicate travel. You are either traveling right now or you will do so in the not too distant future. The good news is that everything associated with this travel is positive.
Upright World Tarot Card Meanings
As already mentioned, the World indicates achievement and completion.
It is true that you had to face hardships and to overcome challenges.
But in the end, what matters is that the project has been successful. Nothing worth achieving comes easy.
This card is also about gaining more insight into what is your role in a bigger scheme of things.
It can be a big project, it can be the community you are part of and so on.
The meaning is that you are more in tune with the world around you.
There is a virtuous circle, i.e. the more success you have, the more connected you feel and the more you are motivated to contribute.
In terms of travel, the World can literally indicate that you may be traveling around the world. You may soon go for a long distance trip.
You may also receive a message from the Universe to be more open to take in elements from the world around you. Try to become more receptive and expand your awareness.
World Tarot Card Love Meanings
World in upright position indicates a positive evolution in the love department for you. You may have tried for a long time to get into a romantic relationship with someone and now it is the time to reap the rewards.
In a reversed position, the love meaning of the World can be that you are stuck in your love live. If you are in a long term relationship, you need to think about ways to get that fire burning again.
If you are not currently into a relationship, you need to take action and reach out more to the outside worlds.
How Do You Read the World Card in terms of Work?
In upright position, you can apply the regular meaning to the card. When it appears reversed though, take a moment to think if you are not flying well below your potential.
Do your current actions lead up to achieving your long term work-related goals?
What Is the Symbolism of the World When It Comes to Your Finances?
Get ready to enjoy better times from a financial point of view. However, it is advisable to take care and not go crazy spending on things.
While your financial status will change for the better, it is important to cherish moderation in order to build long term prosperity.
The World and Health
A new opportunity will appear for you to try in order to get over a health problem that has been bugging you for some time. Keep an open mind and pay attention to what comes your way.
Reversed World Tarot Card Meanings
The reversed World Tarot card indicates that you’re having difficulties in successfully completing a big project, or in achieving completion in your life in general.
You need to take some time and understand why is this happening. Is it because you’re not giving your best? Is it because you’re looking for shortcuts to the top?
Make sure that your goals are meaningful to you.
Then, the high congruence between your values and your goals will make it easier for you to fully commit and do whatever it takes to reach your goals.
Another meaning of the card is lack of closure. It can be that something has made a dramatic exit out of your life and you are left hanging.
Not having experience a proper closure, you have difficulties in letting go. However, you need to make a conscious effort to reach closure. It is a mandatory step in order to be able to move ahead.
The World can also indicate a delay in a project and an invitation to put more effort behind it, in order to reach successful completion.
