Comparison is the thief of joy.  Have you finished a large project? Or a life goal?  And then compared yourself to someone else?

Does your accomplishment seem trivial in comparison? We can’t judge our successes by using another person’s scale.  Everyone has their own unique set of circumstances. Enjoy your achievement and let your work speak for itself. Ever heard this quote? Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.

Or maybe you’re unable to complete a project?  What’s holding you back?  Are you having a crisis of confidence? Have you lost faith in yourself? If you can’t believe in yourself, no one else will. Hold onto your dreams and don’t let them go. Hope isn’t lost.

The World Tarot Love

This card is about happiness.  You’re fulfilled in your relationship and everything is going well.  You’ve found the right partner and he or she literally might be your entire world.  Enjoy your happiness. Hold onto it.

Although, sometimes The World can be bittersweet. It’s about accomplishments, closing a chapter in your life. You’ve done everything you can do and it’s time to move on to the next stage in your life or relationship. Sometimes, this means you will be together. For example, you’ve just bought a home together. Or you’ve just had your first child. Your relationship is going to change.

Other times, you might be taking a separate path. Does Justice appear in this reading? This will be a civil ending to the relationship. You’ve both realized there’s nothing else you can do. You both need to move on and find new partners.

If you’re single, you’re happy by yourself. You’re accomplished, successful, and the world is your oyster.  Go and explore! Find out who you are and what you want. Are you ready to find a partner to share your life with? Only you can decide.
