What better way to start the week than with the World? A male figure holds two wands, one above his hed, the other pressed to his left hip. His decency is protected only by the drape of a red cloth around his hips. Encircling him is a laurel wreath - symbol of victory - and in the corners we see a woman, an eagle, a bull, and a lion. So, there is a slight gender twist here: a man in the centre, and a woman instead of the evangelist Matthew in the top left corner of the card. Still, the sense of success, completion, and being watched over are still clearly present.
This seems a very appropriate card for today, as I will be spending the day at the UK Tarot Conference. What greater sense of fulfillment and joy can there be than dedicating a day to tarot luminaries, decks and good friends? :)
I am grateful for the many joys of life.
