The World

The World

Today’s card — the World — refers to the process of coming full circle, tying up lose ends and preparing to complete an important life cycle.

In this version of the card, we see a woman wearing nothing but a smile and a ribbon, which is strategically draped around her torso. She holds a crown made of leaves in one hand and scepter in the other.

A scattering of gold stars dot the landscape behind her, while the corners — as with many traditional Rider-Waite style tarot decks — contain the astrological representations of the four fixed signs. There’s a human, and eagle, a bull and a lion.

But look closely, each of them are sporting angel wings and are retrieving knowledge from sacred texts. These are the beasts referenced in the book of Revelations, surrounding God’s throne.

Think about the imagery in this card. The woman has stripped herself of all pretense. She’s removed her crown along with her clothing and the ribbon itself contains all of the colors or the rainbow — a nod to her acceptance of the vast array of experience the Universe has to offer. There’s also mention of a rainbow above God’s throne in the book of Revelations.

Apart from those references though, the message behind the world card is best received with insight and awareness. Ask yourself: “What is is I’ve learned through all that I’ve experienced in this chapter of my life?” and “What must I now give up in order to start anew?” If you can answer those two questions with honesty and humility, you’ll be able to carry those lessons into the next chapter.

 

Today’s card — the World — is from the Medieval Enchantment Tarot series by Nigel Jackson (who also gave us the Rumi Tarot and other esoteric works), published by Llewellyn. This is a rare deck that is currently out of print. Here’s an interesting interview with him by the American Tarot Association
