Card 21-The World

The World also called the Universe in some decks represents things to come or things coming to an end. It is the beginning of a journey. It is the end of the journey. It is the god Saturn, Sebek, Pan, and Vidar. It is the goddess Gaea as earth. The World is the great one of the night. It is completion, and fulfillment.

The World falls on the pathway between Malkuth (The Kingdom) and Yesod (Foundation) on the Tree of Life. This pathway signifies the movement upward toward Kether or downward from Kether. It is the beginning of a pathway toward the Crown, or the completion of the spiritual journey from Kether. Is said that Malkuth is in Kether and Kether is in Malkuth. As the Emerald Tablet says, “that which is above is like unto that which is below, but after a different manner”.

If one draws the World in a tarot spread or by itself it signifies that a journey is about to begin or a journey is coming to a close. In the positive it represents completion, success, and fulfillment. The conclusion of events. In the negative it signifies that a project or issue may not be ready to come to a completion, or that there may be a fear of change. It is this fear of change that may stagnate the Querent.
