The World

As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. This month, a major chapter closes. Something you’ve been working on is finished at last. You not only reach the finish line but are able to take a victory lap at the end, for The World symbolizes the successful completion of a goal.

Celebrate your win! Be proud of what you’ve accomplished. Everything you’ve been working toward has now come together in the best way possible. You’ve arrived!

The World can also indicate closure. If you’ve been struggling with a certain aspect of your life (ex: an old relationship, a job that no longer satisfies you, the loss of a loved one, etc.), you are ready to move on at last. This month is a spiritual graduation – you’ve done the work and are gearing up for a new life.

On a more mundane level, this card can indicate travel. With summer looming, it’s time to grab your passport and plot out your vacation. Where do you want to go? What part of the world do you wish to explore? Start planning your world tour!
