With the name of The World this card occupies the twentyth place of the Great Arcanes of the Tarot. In this article we will explain a synthesis of the symbolic features of this deck, as well as of the general interpretations that those who have dedicated themselves to the study of this divinatory method, the origin of which apparently dates back to the Italy of the Middle Ages.
In this card we can see head on the figure of a woman, tucked only by a ribbon of purple cloth, who is surrounded by a laurel crown, a spice that for most is a symbol of victory.
In each corner of this chart are the figure of the head of a being, among which we count a human being, an eagle, a bull and a lion, which is interpreted by some as the representation of the four elements (land, fire, air and water) although there are other expert symbols that prefer to associate the image of these four beings with the Christian evangelists John, Mark, Matthew and Luke four figures.
In general, most tarotists agree that this card is synonymous with triumph and full success, being able to sum up its meaning with the phrase “the world at your feet”. Thus Te World Card is interpreted by the cartomantics as an extremely positive card, which points out that the consultant will emerge victorious and triumphant from the situation he is going through or wishes to face.
Also several streams of thought associate this card with other symbols. For example, for the Cabalistics The World Card is related to the Hebrew Letter Shin, as well as to the zodiac sign of Scorpio, while esotericism prefers to link it with the element Water.
For its part the numerology believes that this card represents the number twenty-one, which would be formed in the light of this discipline by the sum of three times seven (7+7+7) number that is considered as divine for the followers of this current, and which added in this form gives or the number par excellence associated with the gift of divination.
Similarly, this card is interpreted specifically according to the plane of existence that is intended to be analyzed.

As for slightly more specific plans, we have to present The World card within a reading focused on analyzing the final result of a specific situation will always tell the person who asks that all the circumstances given are found so that achieve total triumph and what you want.
If, on the other hand, the consultant wants to identify a specific person, the appearance of this card may be pointing out to a person of very good energy, who is characterized by his fresh and happy character. It may also mean, according to what some experts in this method claim, that someone who is far away has thoughts for the person who consults.
Likewise, the love field is also very well aspected in the presence of this letter, since its appearance in a reading can indicate strong love bonds, wedding realization, romance, and can even augur a pregnancy. If the person is single, this card warns him of the arrival of a new love.

Likewise, The World card a long with The Cart´s card doesn´t predict positive things, as most tarotists point out this combination could be alerting about a possible traffic accident.

And if it appears inverted
Like the other tarot cards, the World also has a specific meaning if it appears inverted, that is, head.

Romance needs to be reactivated.
On the health side, the presence of this card inverted may be pointing out some health problems, especially those related to the lung or respiratory part, which could lead the consultant to keep a few bed days.
