The World (Card XXI) - Basic Meanings



The World, numbered XXI (that's twenty-one in roman numerals), indicates that you are at an ending of a chapter, moving on to the next chapter, the next book. Feeling on top of the world, celebrating connection. Integrating previous experiences and lessons learned. Knowing your worth. Circle of life, one eternal round, alpha and omega, A and Z, 0 to infinity. Support from the four corners of the Earth. 


If the World is in the obstacle position then it indicates that you may be having trouble integrating what you have learned and experienced. It could also indicate that you feel you know better than others and using that to bully others, likely as a misguided attempt to be supportive. Disconnected from the infinite, afraid of coming down, unrealistic "can do" attitude. 


If the World is in the solution position it's a call to remember all that you have been through to get to where you are, and that where you are now is good. You're wiser, smarter, kinder. Every end has a new beginning. You choose how to end this chapter, and how to begin the next one. Trust your guides, trust yourself. Use the tools you have for the next jump. 

NOTE: Picture slot intentionally left blank. No pictures are used so that anyone using any Tarot deck, especially one using the Smith-Waite system (aka: Rider-Waite-Smith), can use these meanings.

Judgment (Card XX) - Basic Meanings


Judgement, numbered XX (that's twenty in Roman numerals), speaks to answering the call to resurrect  a part of yourself you had let go, bringing something back to life. Honor your ancestors, those who have come before. Remember the worth of your own soul; you are worthy because you exist. You have a purpose (or two or three) because you exist. Answer the calling(s) of your heart, mind, and body.


If Judgment is in the obstacle position then it indicates that you are stuck in the grit, in the productivity trap, where anything else sounds like noise to you and judged as less worthy. You've answered the false call to work yourself to death. Denying the lighted hearted wholesome parts of yourself, refusing aid. Dead soul walking. To get out of the death trap, talk to someone you trust. 


If Judgment is in the solution position it's time to rekindle your love affair with life. Pick up that paint brush again, start writing again, play music again, restore a car you love. It doesn't matter how long it's been, simply start, for the joy of it, to come alive again. Remember who you are and where you came from. Forgive (including yourself), but never forget; so you remember the lessons you've learned. 

NOTE: Picture spot intentionally left blank. The use of NO pictures is on purpose so that anyone using any Tarot deck can benefit from these meanings more easily; particularly those using the Smith-Waite system (aka: Rider Waite Smith, RWS).
