As I prepared to select today's Intuitive Tuesday card, I got an intuitive hit to feature The World (Reversed). I pulled this card for one of my clients last week and felt like the messages I received for her, not only were directed at her, but also to me, and quite possibly to you.
This week's card is taken from the Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti and Barbara Moore.
The World is the 21st Major Arcana card in the tarot deck. Major Arcana cards usually indicate more spiritual, life lessons. This card indicates the end of a cycle, culmination, harmony, fulfillment, etc.
But I selected The World in its reversed position (upside-down), which may indicate a feeling of being SOOOOOOOOOOOO close, but not quite "there." This can be in any area of your life or in several areas. It's a place where you seem to be bumping up against an invisible wall.
With The World (reversed), it can feel like you are stuck in a rut, waiting for change, but fearing it at the same time.
By now you probably have a good idea what area of your life is bumping up against the energy of The World (reversed).
If so, it may be helpful to revisit the previous Major Arcana card, Judgment. Perhaps you still have some lessons to learn at this stage of your journey.
Here are some questions to ponder and possibly write about and explore in your journal regarding Judgment and The World (reversed):
- If you truly stepped into your life purpose, what do you fear people would think or say about you?
- What part of you and your gifts is calling to you to come forward without fear?
- What could you become if you believed and allowed?
- Who or what would change in your life if you integrated all of yourself (the "good" parts the "bad" parts, the scared child, the sophisticated executive...etc.)?
Once you trust and your heart opens, knowing that you are completely blessed, The World card begins to shift back into its upright position, indicating fulfillment, attainment, etc.
Another cycle is just around the corner as you begin, once again, with The Fool card (both the last and first card of the Major Arcana).
With this, you signal to the universe that you are ready to move on…and the invisible wall disappears (Is that possible?).
