The XXIst card in the Major Arcana series is titled The World. In the image we see dancing figure, rejoicing in the completion of the journey and celebrating not only this completion but also the new beginnings it promises. She is surrounded by a thick, green wreath, symbolic of success, victory, achievement and accomplishment, and tied with the red ribbons of eternity. The figures in each of the four corners of the World card are the same figures that appear on the Wheel of Fortune (X), which is interestingly connected to this card too and has the same symbolic representation.
In a reading, it is a very positive sign that you are in a position to realize your heart’s desire. All of your efforts are finally paying off and you have reached the end of a journey or have completed a major life cycle. It is a sign of well-earned praise, celebration and success for your achievements. This card is about a deeper understanding of your role and your impact within a certain environment and where you truly ‘fit’. It also signifies our role in the community by providing to the society and to the world at large which is our true contribution.
Keywords: Completion, achievement, fulfilment, Involvement, community service, travel, new experiences.
With this we come to the end of Major Arcana series. I will be starting the Minor Arcana Series in the next post.
