Tarot Series~Major Arcana Card 21: The World

83bcd688507b2555b075c8ddf4b48f1c67f13e22

When pulled upright it is about experiencing a great unity and wholeness. It marks when your inner world and outer world (self and other) become one. Some traditions call this experience enlightenment or nirvana. This happens when you recognize you are profoundly linked with all other things and all living things all move to one rhythm. This card is also about fulfilment, achievements, and completion. Everything you have been working on is beginning to pay off. You have completed a major milestone and through this have become resilient enough to get through life’s challenges. When this card comes up it can speak of the completion of a major milestone such as a long-term project, study, birth of a child, marriage, graduation, or anything else like that. This card can also show that you want to give back to your community.

When pulled in reverse this card can show that you are reaching the end of an era. You may have a bunch of accomplishments but when you look back on them you may still feel an emptiness yet to be filled. You may feel like something is missing from your life. Maybe you aren’t feeling connected to what you’re doing or to others. Only you can figure out what is missing.

Here is a tarot spread that focuses on the world card. This spread is great for finding what brings you joy. First I would take the world card out of the deck and meditate while focusing on what joy feels like to you. Then I would shuffle the cards and pull them using your preferred method.

worldspread

Card 1: This represents what brings you joy and what makes you whole; or, what you need to get there and what you have to deal with; the issues that block your happiness.

The other cards represent the gifts of the four elements, all the ingredients needed to be complete and whole.

Card 2: This card represents the element of earth: meaning the body and material things. This includes basic, simple pleasures, like food, shelter and sex–tangible resources and useful stuff.

Card 3: This card represents the element of water: your intuition, meaningful dreams that can help you define your wants and needs, your soul’s work; and your emotional gifts.

Card 4: This card represents the element of air: your intelligence, knowledge you have, the ability through experience to decide and discern.

Card 5: This card represents the element of fire: this is your passion, the source of your energy (or what’s blocking it), life, that which energizes and inspires you.

Pay attention to which suits fall in which positions: cards that reinforce the position (for example cups in the water position) indicate strength in that area, whereas suits that oppose the position (for example wands in the water position) may point to a need to work on that aspect of yourself to bring yourself into balance.

Weekly Tarot Spread: Balancing and Clearing the Sacral Chakra

So last week I did the reading on my root chakra and today I did my reading for my sacral chakra. If you haven’t checked out the reading for my root chakra then I’ll firstly say, you should check it out. Also, I am doing the chakra readings as a follow up to me learning my reiki 1 and 2 placements.

Tarot spread I used

One thing I have noticed is the more and more I do the readings, the more and more I am able to intuitively read the cards. My only struggle I’m having is cards that don’t show up often for me in readings and when they are reversed. I’m getting better though and I’m so excited about it!

What I pulled

Card to represent my sacral ckakra: Eight of Swords

My sacral chakra is blocked. I have swords all around me but I can’t reach due to being tied up. This all is to say I have the tools to open my sacral chakra but I’ve been unable to find and grasp them. Due to the card being a sword the reason I can’t reach the tools seems to be a mental issue rather than not being able to physically get the tools.

How to better channel my creative energy: Death

Like last week to reach my full potential I need to let the old me (the me that doesn’t doesn’t believe in herself and is too caught up in what others think) die and birth a new me. A me with confidence and happiness. When I do this I will find the creative energy I lack

Practical way I can deepen my relationships: Knight of Pentacles Reversed

When in reverse this card is about routine, being bored, and needing a change in scenery. This means for me that I can deepen my relationships by being spontaneous and changing things up. I’m lacking a social life because I’m so focused on school or work.

A good way for me to balance this chakra: Three of Wands reversed

The three of wands talks about going on a personal journey but not receiving the achievements you were hoping for due to delays or road blocks, But instead of giving up I need to keep working on my self journey because eventually I will get there and when I do, my sacral chakra will be balanced.

Result of balancing this chakra: The World

This card talks of a great unity and wholeness. It symbolizes the moment the inner and outer worlds (self and other) become a single entity. It talks about reaching enlightenment and all efforts are paying off. This is saying when my sacral chakra opens I will find enlightenment and I will feel complete and whole.

Lastly, as we now major arcana cards represent great importance which means creativity and the results of my sacral chakra being balanced are most important and these two cards are both directly effecting the state of my sacral chakra in this moment.
