When reversed, the World card suggests that you are somehow hindered or delayed in your journey toward an important destination. Perhaps you are unaware of your own limits and have failed to set realistic goals. You need to examine and confront what is holding you back so that you can resume your forward movement. Will your current attitude or behavior result in expulsion from the Garden of Eden?

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do. The seven good kine [cattle] are seven years; and the seven good ears [of grain or corn] are seven years: the dream is one. And the seven thin and ill-favored kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine. This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: what God is about to do He sheweth unto Pharaoh (Genesis 41:2528, King James Version).
Complete Book of Tarot: Proselytizing during readings. We live in a diverse society. Those who seek guidance from the cards come from a variety of religious, cultural, and philosophical backgrounds. Tarot readers should not try to impose their own belief systems on their clients. It is imperative to show respect for people even if you dont share their worldview. The tarot can shine light on the querents issues and concerns, but the cards do not tell the querent what to believe or what to do. Stick to saying what you see in the cards and insist that querents make their own decisions and live their own lives.
Angel Encyclopedia: To further add to the air of mystery that he liked to engender, Kelly claimed the messages were always dictated backward, because to communicate them directly would unleash dangerous and powerful forces beyond control. When the messages were finished, he and Dee rewrote them in reverse order.
