The World card is a celebration of completion of a victorious journey. Completion always leads to the beginning of a new one - this too is an exciting proposition. The ruling planet of this card is Saturn, which symbolizes time.

In the center of the card is a dancing female figure, who has one leg crossed over the other. A close inspection would reveal that the World card is in many ways the opposite of the Hanged Man.

The dancer looks infinitely outward. In each of her hands is a wand or baton which represents the evolution and balance that are essential parts of life.

The dancer is encircled in a thick green wreath that symbolizes success, victory, triumph, achievement and accomplishment. The wreath is tied with a red ribbon that signifies eternity. The ribbon has been tied in the shape of infinity symbol which is a reminder that positive efforts improve not only our lives but also our surroundings.

The stars of light within the wreath indicate attainment of enlightenment or spiritual consciousness.

There are four figures on each corner of the car. The figures represent the four life elements, the four suits of tarot, the four compass points, the four seasons and the four corners of the universe. The notable factor is that all these are within the sight and power of the dancer.

Upright Position: This card speaks of completion of a journey and also beginning of another. It says that realization would dawn upon the seeker and that major goals will be attained.

Reversed Position: Reversed, the card signals delays and interruption. The results will be obtained, but with time.
