The World – Tarot Card Meaning

Upright meaning: Completion, fulfillment, accomplishment, travel, integration, achievement.

Reversed meaning: Incompletion, lack of closure, lack of achievement, delay, procrastination.

The World Description

The World card depicts a woman dancing in the center of a large laurel wreath. She is holding a wand in each hand, representing balance and evolution. The wreath is circular, symbolizing a continuous cycle of successful completion and new beginnings because, as the woman steps through the wreath, she is simultaneously completing a phase and beginning a new one.

Surrounding the wreath are four creatures, each representing one of the four elements: The man is Aquarius, the eagle is Scorpio, the lion is Leo and the bull is Taurus. These are symbolic of the four corners of the universe, the four elements, and the four evangelists who wrote the gospels.

The World signifies completion, achievement, and fulfillment. All of your efforts are finally paying off, and you have reached the end of a journey or have completed a major life cycle.
