Endings. Completion. A journey ends so another can begin. Success and achievement. Achieving a goal. And they lived happily ever after till it starts all over again with the fool.
The World card is the final card in the Tarot deck and it represents the end, completion, the end of a journey and or success. Just by looking at this card you can see that everything is there, it is rich with life and there is a sense of triumph and accomplishment. The World card is all about completion, having reached the end of a journey, quest or project and emerged triumphant. This is the ‘happy ever after’ card. Everything that we need and that the world really is at our feet. In the card we can see the tree of life, but also the sun, stars, heavens and the zodiac, representing the totality of life. The journey that began with the Fool ends with World card, but while it represents the end or completion it also indicates that as one journey ends another begins. There is every reason to celebrate your success and what you have achieved, while you also have everything needed to begin new quests, projects or journeys. May also be taken in a literal sense indicating overseas travel or destinations. It can also indicate higher learning and gaining knowledge of the world beyond your present horizons.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the World card, it could feel that you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, that you are falling short of completing something or that you are thinking too small, failing to look at the big picture. This is such a positive card that even reversed this is a message to look outwards rather than inwards.
