The World card represents the focus of the universe, echoing the Wheel of Fortune, the 10th card of the Major Arcana. There are still Lion, Eagle, Angel and Holy Cow in the four corners, while there is no wheel of fortune in the middle, but a young girl dancing on the laurel wreath. She holds a wand in one hand and seems to hold a key in the other, cheering for those who step into the finish line. Or it is a call to lead the winner to the door of wisdom in front of him, and take away the key to a happy life in his hands. The world is both the end of the Major Arcana’s life journey and a new beginning. Because after you enter the door of wisdom, you become a fool again, trying to find a new wisdom or life goals. The main element of happiness is wholeness, the feeling that everything is working together in harmony. It is not a static way, but a dynamic balance. Everyone will feel satisfied and happy when all the elements work together.
The World card represents a period of enhanced insight. Although nothing may be changed in a short time, during this period, you have enough energy to explore what you like. Travel is usually a good choice. With the protection of the World card, you can basically ensure a safe and rewarding trip. It is also a good choice to make friends or read a wide range of books. Since you can’t change right away, it’s good to see more different possibilities. Perhaps in those possibilities you have not thought of, you will find new opportunities to embark again on a journey of great magnitude. The World card also stands for communication with the natural world. Go out to the nature to enrich yourself and relax tired body and mind, and this will make the future road more stable for you.
On the other hand, as the last of the 22 cards in the Tarot, the World is a perfect card. However, things are hard to change when they are perfect. A sharp-edged stone may change shape after an accidental impact, but a round stone may remain round even if it rolls for a long time. In addition, a flawless thing is inevitably difficult to have a personality. Therefore, the World card is actually the least distinctive one among all the Major cards, and it is difficult to judge whether it is good or bad by this card alone. But most people like the pursuit of stability. Even if it is not their ideal state, as long as they can settle down, many people are willing to integrate into any place, even go with the flow. As for those unfinished things, it is enough for them to occasionally express their feelings after a meal. Therefore, in many cases, the person who draws the World card is satisfied with the stability represented by this card, and will also feel satisfied – after so many hardships, it is time to settle down. In fact, a “satisfactory” life for many people is a kind of success, isn’t it?
Sometimes, however, you will meet someone who draws a world card in a very bad situation, such as when he/she is at a low point in his/her career, or is deadlocked with his/her partner, and so on. This is unusual, but when it happens, it might be quite tricky, because the World card is basically a nightmare at this point. Because of its stable nature, this situation will remain unchanged for a long time, no matter what situation you are in. Among the cards with the longer-lasting effect, the World is sometimes the most annoying one. It is neither like the Wheel of Fortune that always promises you slow change at the end of the period, nor like the Tower that completely overwhelms you and leaves you to deal with it. The World card feels like driving in the Sahara Desert with just enough supplies: a flat road, a landscape that seems to be unchanging no matter how you drive it, a long confrontation with drought and dry heat, extremely uncomfortable and boring because there’s nothing you can do about it. Until driving out of the desert, you can only keep repeating the same mechanized movements. These actions will eventually take you out of the desert, but it’s impossible to see right now. In the face of this situation, you can only persist. Although it is usually recommended that the person concerned try to find himself/herself some kind of fun, in this case, probably the most interesting entertainment will also make people feel dull and boring.
