The World is the last card in the Major Arcana but it also marks the beginning of a new cycle of experiences. It depicts a nude dancer wrapped in a scarf surrounded by a thick wreath, a symbol of victory and conquest. The circular shape of wreath evokes the image of another Tarot card, namely the Wheel of Fortune. However, this isn't the only similarity it shares with this card. The creatures seen in its four corners are the same figures that appear on The Wheel of Fortune. Here too they symbolize stability amidst change. It is also an indication that your efforts will finally pay off.

Work: If this card appears in your reading, it means that you're working way too much for far too little money and recognition. The time has come to ask for a raise or a promotion. If you get neither one of them, look for another job or start a business on your own. Don't sell yourself short.

Love: If you're single and planning to go on a vacation, you're likely to meet someone new while you're away. If you're already spoken for, a sign that s/he is the one for you could appear. Either way, things should be going very well in the romance department. But don't rest on your laurels.

Astro Tips & Tricks

When Saturn is retrograde, it's recommended that you take a step back, wait a moment, analyze your circumstances, draw conclusions and plan your next move. But don't take any action right away! Have a little patience! You can consult the Planetary Retrograde Calendar here.
