Robin Wood - The World - 21


Have reached the last of the Major Arcana, after what's turned out to be a self-study of Robin's deck. Will begin the suit of Pentacles next.

"The World" is another simply beautiful card drawn by Robin. The more I study and work with these cards, the more I'd like to meet the woman who created them. She is surely amazing.

I particularly like how Robin drew the actual elements in each corner, rather than symbols. While I enjoy and appreciate animal and other types of symbols generally, it seems so much more powerful to have the elements themselves presented, as they are in nature. And speaking of powerful, that's what I think of when I see this card in a spread...the majestic earth and cosmos in all its glory, with all the possibilities presented to us, as humans, within it.

This is a card that, in my mind, tells the reader/querant that the world and all the secrets and beauty it holds is ours to cherish, take care of, understand more fully and live wisely within it.

The World, to me, is a "go for it card"...we've learned some lessons on our journey in life and now we are capable of making informed decisions. More lessons will continue, full of ups and downs, but we'll be ready for whatever comes our way because we've made sure we are grounded and centered with the earth. The World encourages us to use what we've already become skilled in. The journey through life will continue and if we use our talents carefully, they will be built upon...as a foundation for future successes.
