The Major Arkana card, marked with number twenty one.
The World is a card marked with the number twenty-one, which completes the deck of the Great Arkana and concludes at the same time the metaphorical journey of the Fool through the Arcana. The ending, however, is at the same time a new beginning, an invitation to another journey, and a gateway through which to enter a new dimension of consciousness.
The World Card shows a naked woman floating against a blue sky, surrounded by a green wreath. Green is the color of hope, while the shape of the wreath expresses the successive cycle of beginnings and endings. According to some, it also resembles a woman’s womb surrounding a woman on the card, which may be a symbolic announcement of rebirth and the beginning of the life cycle anew. In some decks at the feet of a woman there is an image of a globe symbolizing the world as we know it. There are two white canes in the woman’s hands. The heavenly wreath is surrounded by four beings, which are symbols of the four evangelists and the four geographic directions. These creatures are the lion, the bull, the eagle, and the human. It is sometimes believed that these creatures embody the four cardinal virtues, namely prudence, justice, bravery and moderation.
The appearance of the World card in the Tarot schedule proves that we have reached a certain level of inner maturity. It says that we have managed to do some important life lesson and that we are now on the threshold of a new stage of life. New opportunities and perspectives are opening up for us, new dreams and plans emerge. A time of new sowing is coming for us, when we will make important decisions to shape our future. The effects of these decisions may be felt for us only in the coming years. The World Card, related to the planet Saturn, usually refers to long periods of time, exceeding the next weeks or months.
The World Charter also speaks of an open mind, education and broadening one’s own horizons. The card encourages us to expand, to make contacts, to meet new people, places and cultures.

The decayed world advises us not to close ourselves to change, but to stay optimistic and flexible. For this reason, this card is often considered a symbol of youth – both physically and internally. It informs about the curiosity of the world and the ability to quickly adapt to new circumstances that often characterize young people.
