#TarotTuesday – The World

Welcome to another Tarot Tuesday!

If you are just joining me, let me explain the inspiration to begin these posts. In Texas, and all across the country, Taco Tuesday is a popular day when Tacos are usually 99 cents. So, I had the inspiration, or Angel nudge as I like to think of it, to create a Tarot Tuesday. Each Tuesday I will post a different Tarot card and give its meaning. I pray and ask for the right card that will bring a universal message.

I created a short video to demonstrate how I pull the card for the posts. If you’re interested, here’s a LINK.

Today’s card is from the Major Arcana – The World

There are twenty-one cards in the Major Arcana and The World is the twenty first and last card.

The keywords are: Completion, integration, accomplishment, and travel.

The World card shows a naked woman wrapped in a purple cloth, dancing inside a large laurel wreath. She looks behind her to the past, while her body moves forward to the future. In her hands are two wands or batons, like the one the Magician holds. It is a symbol that what was manifested with the Magician has now come to completion with the World. The wreath is circular, symbolizing a continual cycle of successful completion and new beginnings because, as the woman steps through the wreath, she is completing one phase but beginning another one almost straight away.

Around the wreath are four figures (a lion, bull, cherub and eagle), similar to those in the Wheel of Fortune. Both the World and the Wheel of Fortune speak to the cyclical nature of your life and your progression through its cycles. The four figures represent the four fixed signs of the Zodiac—Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, and Scorpio. They are symbolic of the four elements, the four suits of the Tarot, four compass points, four seasons, and the four corners of the Universe. They are here to guide you from one phase to the next, bringing balance and harmony to your journey.

When the World card appears in a Tarot reading, you are glowing with a sense of wholeness, achievement, fulfillment and completion. This card could represent graduation, a marriage, the birth of a child or achieving a long-held dream or aspiration. You have finally accomplished your goal or purpose. Everything has come together, and you are in the right place, doing the right thing, achieving what you have envisioned. You feel whole and complete.

Now, the World card invites you to reflect on your journey, honor your achievements and tune into your spiritual lessons. Celebrate your successes and bask in the joy of having brought your goals to fruition. All the triumphs and tribulations along your path have made you into the strong, wise, more experienced person you are now. Express gratitude for what you have created and harvested. Finally, make sure you don’t rush into the next big project; celebrating your journey will set you up for success when you are ready for your next challenge.

If you have not quite reached this point of completion, then you are very close! You may still need an added level of understanding to graduate to a higher level and enjoy real success. Look back at your past experiences and acknowledge how far you have come and what you learned along the way. It may surprise you to look back at your progress and see how much you achieved. This reflection may also be what you need to bring your project to its final stages.

If loose ends still remain, the World card asks you to bring them to completion. In doing so, you will clear the space for new beginnings and opportunities to emerge.

More literally, the World can mean world travel, particularly on a large scale. This card reinforces Universal understanding and global awareness, and you will find a new appreciation for people and cultures from across the world.

This is a very powerful card and I want to share an experience I had over the weekend. The weekend brought about the Summer Solstice and myself along with over 100,000 more people watched a live stream on Facebook of the sunset behind the iconic stones of Stonehenge. That in itself was spectacular, but more than that were the comments running in a constant stream as people from around the world, posted messages of hope and love and unity. I was moved to tears more than once. The truth is that we are all connected. We all share the incredible power of the life force that keeps these bodies alive. We all are returning to the same source at some point. We are on this journey together. So, that is what this card indicates to me – One World – One Unity. Your turn.

As always, thank you for joining me! See you next Tuesday for another inspiring message from the Universe via the Tarot Cards!

As always, I use the Rider-Waite Radiance deck and BiddyTarot.com for interpretations.

  1. Thank you for the timely message this card represents, Jan. I have a great sense of accomplishment this week. I had the story of my children’s book professionally edited. For several months, I couldn’t find an illustrator. Two of three of them disappointed me. Finally I was connected with one. He is very accommodating with unlimited revisions. He just finished one test page for me and I’m very pleased with his work. I do watercolor but don’t paint portrait so have to find someone to do it for me. I like the drawing and the watercolor style of this artist. I couldn’t believe that finally I found someone I like. So I’ll place an order for him to do my book. So I have accomplished one phase, and now begin another phase of this book. ❤

  2. You’re right, Jan, this is a fabulous card! It’s timely with everything going on in the world right now. I’m wrapping up a project and getting ready to begin another, so I can relate to this card. Very inspiring post! ❤ xo

  3. Wow! This is a great card. I’m not sure how it applies to me but I do think the world as a whole is in a spirit of unity. Everyone in every nation struggles for equality, unity, and to have a better life. I wish I had known about the Summer Soltice at Stonehenge. Wow! That sounds very powerful. You are definitely embarking on new beginnings and I’m so excited for you, sister.

    1. Oh, I feel bad. I should have told you about Stonehenge. Sorry for my thoughtlessness, sister. I agree that the world as a whole is in a spirit of unity. What we see on the news is only the bad things going on, nothing good and there is a lot of good out there. Thank you so much for stopping by! I love you!


    1. That was exactly what I experienced, Rob, and maybe for the first time, I saw why technology had to advance so quickly for us all. It’s rather mind-blowing. 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. I am a bit blown away! “Now, the World card invites you to reflect on your journey, honor your achievements…”. The card is so fitting my post of yesterday. Such a wonderful confirmation since I on the journey to a new achievement which often seems to progress not fast enough because I cannot afford the necessary time to make it happen faster. But your card confirms that I am on my path and only need to continue. Thank you, Jan 💖

    1. Lol, Erika. I’m blown away every week when the Universe chooses the card for us. 🙂 It is such a confirmation when the synchronicity is so blatant we can’t help but honor it! Thank you so much for stopping by and YES, keep on keeping on, my dear! You have the blessing of the Universe!

  5. What a great reading, Jan. I very much agree with you. “We are on this journey together…One World – One Unity.” Beautiful. ♥

  6. This card is perfect for right now. I just put my first short story up for pre-order yesterday! 🎉🎉🎉

    I also think it fits with the world as well. More and more people are awakening to accepting an inner-connectedness with others across the globe (like your experience in the Summer Solstice).

    The BLM movement is making people stop and reflect upon their own behaviors and, in turn, start holding themselves and others accountable.

    I am happy to see this card today and hope that we are taking a step into a more awakened future for all of us. 😊

    1. Whoo Hoo!! I will head over to Amazon and get my Pre-order copy of your new short story, Yvette! Congrats on wrapping it up! I agree with the shift in consciousness. The news isn’t going to show anything like that. It’s for that reason alone, I stay away from it. Some folks say that I’m burying my head in the sand by not keeping up, but that doesn’t bother me. The Universe has a way of letting me know what I need to know. Thank you so much for stopping by, and please know that my blog site is open to you for promoting your new short story!

      1. Aw, thank you, Jan! 🙂

        I also stay away from the news. Actually, I don’t have cable TV at all. I watch Netflix and HGTV. That’s it! Lol! I see a few pieces of news on FB, but I get to choose to keep scrolling. And every now and then, I check the news feed on my phone just to get a pulse, but I try to stay away from reading too many articles. The energy is just draining, and I value my energy too much to let something negative take it from me.

    1. I’m always amazed at the accuracy of the cards, especially when there are so few to draw from as I finish out the deck. Congrats on wrapping up projects, and here’s to the next ones! Thank you for stopping by!

  7. Reblogged this on Campbells World and commented:
    For me this card holds some very specific meaning.
    Last year at this time I was setting some very specific goals both for myself and my business.
    Now, here I am one year later and many of those goals I sat have come into reality.
    What’s more is that I’m doing things in my business I never dreamed I could.
    Happy Tarot Tuesday to All!
