The World as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card

Oracle Message: Everything you worked for is coming into being.


The finishing line is close, projects are nearing completion and your plans are coming together. The World card completes the Major Arcana & this relates to us in the real world. If you were struggling to find the endpoint, know you are there already. You don’t have to be a perfectionist 24/7 & you don’t need to say everything – the end is here. Stop now.

Talking of ends doesn’t mean a bad ending either. That would be the realm of Death, or the 10 of Swords. This ending is a good one and if it doesn’t feel that way just yet, know that it will and you will see that the ending now is right on time.

In other ways, the World can denote travel – the World is the Earth after all. So, planning a holiday or trip is favourable. As one door closes another opens and your next adventure awaits you.
