The World is Your Oyster!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is, The World, representing: Wholeness, Completion and Success! When writing about this card, I'm often compelled to include the following quote from the Medicine Cards, describing Crow Energy/Medicine, because it so beautifully describes the essence of The World: “Honor the past as your teacher, honor the present as your creation, and honor the future as your inspiration.”
On a symbolic level, The World represents the completion of a journey, and an accumulation of all the lessons we have learned along the way. Now we must “leave home”, our inner exploration and venture into the outer world of form. To take all that we know and translate it into actual experience.
This card indicates that we have attained the wisdom and the tools necessary to create a reality that reflects our highest and truest selves. Here, the ever-evolving dream of all that we can manifest is finally within our grasp!
One definition of The World is: Worldly Success! This is a time to be confident about your creations, especially on the career front. The more confident you are, the more success you will find.
Although The World represents a completion, we still have much to learn. Saturn is the ruler of The World, representing the earth’s learning ground, the school of the soul. Saturn can be a hard taskmaster, for it teaches us our limitations. In this card we gain clarity about what we want to achieve in this lifetime, defining our destiny, our very purpose of life--while still being clear about our boundaries.
This week, especially with the Full Moon in Gemini, is a time to expand your worlds—big and small. And to truly become the master of our destinies!
