Bohemian Gothic (2nd Edition) The World

This woman in The World card is descending down rocky, dark, and damp terrain. She steps on skulls as she makes her way down, but looks completely relaxed and unafraid, practically gliding! The jagged rocks and skulls don't cause her bare feet any pain, or if it does, it is of no concern to her. She is above it. There is a tall tree and she uses it to balance herself as she makes her journey. It represents wisdom, growth and being in tune with nature. It is barren with a few leaves on it, but in time and with age, it will become a grand tree. The things it will see! The sky looks dark, but the clouds are giving way to the most beautiful blue sky. The light from above--presumably the sun that is breaking through as opposed to the moon that we normally see in this deck--illuminates the water. Is this a vast sea or a lake? Regardless, the waters are calm, just like the woman. She has learned to conquer all of her fears and find her path. Her delicate dress is light blue and is not confining like many of the other garments in the deck. It is free-flowing, just like the woman is.

She represents the end of the ultimate journey and the culmination of what is learned. Once she gets to the bottom and she will start on a new path, but will be wiser based on experience, just like we will be when we experience the same thing.


Ah, another card that I simply love!
