The world card is the final card in the tarot deck, and as such, represents completion. This sense of being complete is complemented by a feeling of wholeness, actualization, and integration.
If we look closely at the image on the card, we can see there’s a feeling of complexity happening in the outer circles. Multiple lines, colours and repeated patterns begin to simplify as we reach the centre, which stands as solid white. As we begin to break down the complexities we’ve been facing, things actually get easier and more clear. This is the point we’re at this week.
There’s also a duality of light and dark throughout, suggesting that things have likely been teetering between the conscious and unconscious. As we near completion now though, everything is brought to the light for us to see and tie up any loose ends.
The circle itself invokes a sense of wholeness – with no beginning and no end. Regardless of the challenges we may be facing or any emotional turmoil we have confronted, we’re always complete beings. Sometimes we just need to shift our perspective to see the big picture and not get bogged down in the details. Time to let go about worrying about outcomes and trying to control things. Now is the time to realize that things are perfect just the way they are – imperfections and all.
This card shows up to remind us that we’re whole and complete and something within us is ready for integration. We’ve gained momentum through our experiences and this card asks that we hold space to integrate the lessons that are prominent for us now.

The Father of Pentacles is a steady and entrepreneurial force. A gentle man, he’s truly confident without being cocky and works towards what he wants. At first meeting, he can be construed as dull due to his calm and even temperament however, underneath is a passionate soul who prioritizes the stability of his job, family, and home. Complete, present, and multifaceted, he has a dynamic energy.
While the Mother of Pentacles directs her energy inwards (looking at the root of problems) the Father turns his energy outwards – more concerned with solutions than causes. He has a positive self image and no qualms about what he stands for with a healthy sense of self esteem by working hard to create results. He’s a natural leader and wants to make a real impact on the world. He supports others in their goals and is reliable and straight-forward.
This week we’re asked to look at how we can incorporate these aspects more into our daily lives. Consider how consistency and reliability are being portrayed by yourself and others around you. When you come head-to-head with challenges this week, consider the skills you have to work through them. Focus on solutions and step fully into your worth. Focus on what you can do and your abilities.
Until next week, xoxo
The Son of Wands is a true charmer – handsome and adventurous. He’s a beacon of self-confidence and assurance. The wand he holds appears to be a beacon, shining light upon everything in its wake. Strutting along, he holds himself in high regard, whether or not it’s merited.
While we can’t help but admire his self-assuredness, it seems to border on cockiness. He’s banking on things working his way and likely has no back up plan in case things go awry.
The Son of Wands seeks new adventures and certainly won’t stick around when things get boring or stagnant. He follows the next great adventure but often has a tough time staying in the moment.
This card suggests that it may be high time to introduce this type of passionate and confident energy in your life. What feels new and exciting to you right now? How can you dive headfirst into something that lights you up? What can you do to bring some novelty and inspire a new energy in your life? March towards excitement but be cautious of the implications of your actions.
Until next week, xo
The four of wands symbolizes completion and celebration with a renewed recognition of where we want to go from here. We celebrate the fact that our labours have been steady and strong and the resulting harvest will be plentiful. To put it another way – it’s time to party.
Looking at the card, we can see that the wands criss-cross with an indigo centre. Indigo represents the third eye and our place of inner knowing and intuition. This focus reminds us that at the centre of our current completion lies an innate understanding of where we’ve been and where we’re going. The larger background incorporates yellow and orange rays that represent planning and action. The four of wands suggest a combination of intuition and intelligence as we continue to move forward.
The surrounding black lines in the background mirror the pattern on the back of this card and so, this represents the opening of a new portal. We’re essentially actively exploring new dimensions in our lives.
There’s a lot of joy in this card and the wands almost appear to be dancing – as if it were a person stretching out his or her limbs in happiness. We’re being asked to embrace where we’re at and to celebrate how far we’ve come without denying how far there is to go.
Where do you feel like you’ve made great strides in your life? How can you applaud yourself for a job well done and continue plugging away with the momentum you’ve gained? Focus on the part of you that knows the actions you’ve taken are part of a larger journey that may not be entirely clear right now, but is building your future.
Until next week, xo
