The World Upright
The World card represents fulfillment, triumph, and realizing ambitions. It is a celebratory card, but also an invitation to reflect on and celebrate your achievements before moving on to “the next thing.” Allow yourself to gain a sense of closure so you don’t feel like you’re on a treadmill, forever running to the next mile marker.
The World Reversed
The World in reverse indicates that you might not be setting your sights high enough. As long as you don’t lose focus before the finish line, you can accomplish what you truly want to, so don’t settle. It’s also possible you might be seeking closure and unable to get it. Seeking closure from another person or a situation beyond your control is setting yourself up for disappointment. You need to make peace with and let go of the past on your own in order to move forward.
