I’ve moved this post to today as I had a guest on Monday. The card I selected today is one of the major cards. The World. This card is the completion image of the cycle of the tarot.
This card is from the Rider Waite pack.
All tarot cards have a variety of symbols associated with them but this card has many. I think it is one of the most complex cards and yet if I find it in a reading I am always uplifted by it.
To me this card represents the culmination of a task, completion and satisfaction in the result of efforts made, but it offers more too, the prospect of moving on to other things. This is the representation of the cycle of the story of the tarot. We all begin, like the first of the major cards, The Fool, and our journey takes us on many paths as we gain wisdom. It is this wisdom that The World recognises, but there is a step beyond and more to discover as, like the dancer in the image, we move on.
I always see this as a positive card. Success, deserved rewards for your efforts, promotion, happiness in romance exisiting or new and an upswing in income, all are possible. Travel can also be represented by this card, new experiences and new beginnings made possible by earlier success.
I’m glad this card popped up today. I’d love to know your thoughts on my ideas about this card. Do let me know.
Thanks for reading.
