The World Tarot card is the twenty-first Major Arcana card and represents the final card of the tarot trump sequence. The card depicts a naked woman inside a wreath holding batons in each hand. The four elements: water, air, earth, and fire are symbolized in each corner of the card. While there are many positive connotations to the card itself, the common theme is one of satisfaction, because we have achieved goals which are important to us.
The primary meaning the card reflects is completion or fulfillment of an important task. It symbolizes the culmination of efforts where there is an ending and perhaps the start of a new beginning. The World card also tells us to hang in there and not to waver, for a positive end is near. This is especially true when dealing with a difficult relationship or financial project. It shows that the time spent is not wasted but more so invested into that which is important to us. It is time to keep the faith and stay on the path where life has brought us.
The time is near where one will feel inner peace and satisfaction from the efforts put forth. It is time to have faith in oneself and to let go of any insecurities and fears. Your place in the world becomes clear and the ability to give back what was learned is now yours. You are now in tune with the universe you live in, embracing your own spirituality and moving forward to life's next level.
In the reverse position, the World Tarot card tells us to pause and examine the difficulties we are having in life. It is time to make commitments in love instead of just allowing yourself to be stuck in a state of void. A change of jobs could go a long way in achieving long-term career goals. It is time to put forth more efforts as there are no shortcuts or quick fixes. By doing so you will realize that you are often at your very best when the very best is required of you.
