World Tarot Card MeaningThe World is one of the 3 most positive cards of the major arcana (with the Star and the Sun). The World is the card of balance and accomplishment.

The World is the perfect balance of the Four elements: Water, Air, Fire and Earth. Of positive and clear communication.

It is always favourable to the sitter’s question and guarantees a happy outcome.

Stable and steady, the World speaks of long term happiness and of the things that are here to stay. A long term success, a marriage that lasts, a rewarding profession.

If the World is ruling your spread, you have nothing to fear.

PERSON – Upright: the sitter, especially if a woman. A simple and honest person you can trust. Someone sincere who has a certain power. Reversed: a powerful person somehow hostile to the sitter.
