Pulling the world is certainly very pleasant, but one must also beware of traps and carefully analyze the position of the card in the deck. Indeed, it sometimes happens that the World card does not necessarily mean full success....

The Tarot World card is reversed:

The World being the card of achievement, her inversion only diminishes her qualities but does not succeed in reversing them. Thus things and events have not yet come to an end, contracts have not yet been signed, but the end is near. As a result, success may be delayed, and small disappointments may be scattered along the way.


For example, the upside down world card may indicate that you are on a quest, but you may not be able to reach it. No doubt you may encounter major obstacles that prevent you from advancing. This is mostly due to your conception of things and the path you choose to take that does not allow you to reach your goals.

It's also possible that the World upside down can cause a general feeling of dissatisfaction or you can't find what's important to you. It is possible that you may not be able to realize what is important to you. You can't finish your studies, your relationship can't end...etc.

The upside down World will also be able to express types of personalities or behaviours. An inordinate pride, a form of egocentricity...etc.

Particularities of the World

In its immobility the World expresses eternity. The finality of the work, timeless that survives man and remains until the end of time.
The World is the end of the initiatory journey begun with The Mage. It is the success of all the tests, the accomplishment of the work.

This card represents the ultimate understanding of the message delivered by the Pope to the Mage at the beginning of his initiatory journey. The Mage understood that life is a passage, that it is necessary to go beyond what is material while integrating it into his incarnation. It is a question of taking distance and seeing oneself as part of a much more important whole.

She holds a wand in her left hand just like The Mage, it's power over things. The cosmic elements are represented, the air by the levitation of the young woman, she seems to be holding effortlessly, she has reached the perfect balance.
