What does the World card mean in a tarot combination?
As the last card of the Major Arcana, the World represents reaching completion and beginning of a new cycle. When drawn to clarify another card, it is generally indicative of new and exciting opportunities ahead. If the card you want to clarify is negative, the World is usually an encouraging ‘’future looks brighter’’ message. A positive card in combination with the World can often be interpreted as ‘’trust in your direction’.
Is the World card a yes or a no?
The World is one of the hardest cards to interpret, but in upright position it is often a yes to your question, especially if it involves a major life change.
