The idea of the World Card (our focus this week) in Nina Japaridze's Tarot deck is completion or involvement with authentic joy. "Our cosmic traveler is pictured at the center of this composition in an intriguing pose—arms outstretched and chest thrust forward engulfed in the panoply of existence. It seems a pose of divine ecstasy and complete integration with all that surrounds her." She is flanked on the left and right by the King of Cups and The High Priestess, respectively. Considering these qualities, archetypes and symbols will assist you in the journey:
• King of Cups: "Greeting the dawn, often alone, the Heron is reputed to be gifted with psychic perception and reflection."
• The High Priestess: "The Seer is wrapped in the owl's cloak of wisdom...drawing wisdom from the roots that are deeply embedded in the earth...[and] surrounded by the four elements." She represents insight that is gained in stillness.
In moving toward your completion or joy this week, be mindful of your intuitive strengths and messages. Witness carefully the natural world around you—in order to help ground and root...and avoid scattered energies. The manifestation of the World comes only with pure intent, focus and integrity. Avoid distractions. Stay true to your deepest knowing.
