Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:
XXI. The World
You have come full circle, and the world stretches itself out before you. Facing you, this card symbolizes a completion or fulfillment, a breath at the end of long journey. The hardships and ache you’ve endured have made you stronger, intimately in touch with the inner-self, and you are boldly in the right place to achieve what you’ve envisioned to be the next voyage of your life. From this point of vision, you can see the entire process or system for what it is—and you have an electric role within it. Right facing, this card pulls your attention to a wholeness and freedom from an occurring or recent karmic life situation; left, The World urges you to focus on a task or relation that needs culmination. In reverse, the querent is blocked or hesitating, therefore experiencing a period of anxious stagnation. Remember to return to yourself. Do not forget your multitudes. The world is yours to be shared when love and self-honor are present.
upright: culmination; voyage; a new cycle
right: reflection; liberation
left: required focus; attention to process
reversed: lack of closure; stagnant struggling
