Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - (21) The World

The World
Introduction: The World can often signify that you are figuratively feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders, which is not an easy place to be.

It's an excellent time to review how well you do at asking for help when you need it. Remember you don't have to do everything on your own so learn when to delegate when you can and when to ask for assistance when you can't.

General: This can often be a card of completion. You've worked hard, and you are almost to the finish line in some way so don't quit now when you are so close!

You're almost definitely in need of some well-deserved rest and relaxation; don't be afraid to take it. You are getting closer to who you really are at your deepest levels.

Work: In terms of work, there's a very good chance that you are working far too hard for far too little recognition and money. It's important if this is the case to blow your own horn a little and to make sure that the powers that be don't accidentally overlook your many positive accomplishments.

You may find it beneficial to look outside your own country for helpful information in how the work you do is done elsewhere and this could lead to some very interesting realizations. Remember that just because something has always been done a certain way doesn't mean that it has been done in the best way.

Love: If you travel during this time period and you are in the market for a relationship, you may well meet someone while you are away. This will be true even if the travel is only locally and not very far away. Don't be afraid to mingle or talk to strangers.

Conversely, if you have been in a committed long-term relationship for some time, you are likely to find it rising to new and better heights. Things in the love department should be quite interesting but in a good way.


Finances: If money has been a bit stagnant for you then the appearance of The World is a good sign and that this blockage will soon clear and you'll find yourself flush once again. There is a caveat though and this is it: When money does improve make sure you don't go mad with spending.

It is important that you have understood the lesson and begin saving and protecting yourself so that if hard times come again you will be better prepared. But for now, you should be able to rest easier knowing that your finances are very likely to improve.

Health: Your health should be on the upswing. You may be helped by finding a healer who works with something besides traditional Western medicine. Don't view this as an attempt to replace medical therapy because it isn't. Rather it is to work in concert with it.

Doctors have different views about this so if he or she tells you, for example, that it's not possible for you to study yoga and that it would get in the way of the treatment of your condition you may be best served by locating a different medical doctor for a second opinion.

Don't ignore medical advice but do listen to your instincts about what is best for your health. Seek out mentors with more information than you have. Educate yourself as much as you can so that you can advocate for yourself.

Spirituality: You are likely to have several clear flashes of important spiritual insights during this time. Keep a notebook handy and record these. thoughts. Although insight will often be given through dreams it is just as likely to appear when you are wide awake.

Share and discuss your thoughts with others whether that be with close friends or family or simply online. We are all on a spiritual journey and not everyone will have had your epiphany so your insights are likely to prove valuable for others.
