Edmonton Tarot: The World (XXI)
Interpretation: The World is the final card in the Major Arcana. On a spiritual level, it denotes wholeness, balance and integration. All the wisdom lessons learned from the preceding cards culminate in this card. It brings new consciousness and awareness. On a more mundane level, The World card represents triumph, success and deserved rewards. On any level, this is a card of completion -- the reader has achieved what he or she has been seeking and striving to attain. A major cycle of the person's destiny is successfully concluded.
Image: The traditional image for The World card is a circular wreath with the Divine Feminine dancing inside. I have chosen for its Edmonton equivalent this mural of an aboriginal round dance. The circle contains the sacred medicine wheel and an eagle feather. Drummers provide the rhythmic heartbeat for the dance of life.
This mural is located on a building in Edmonton's inner city (corner of 107 Avenue and 95 Street) which is the area populated by our urban poor and homeless. It was painted by local artist Kris Friesen. The mural honours the founder of Boyle Street Community Services, an agency providing programs and services to those who are marginalized. May all who struggle find the wholeness and success represented by The World card!
