21. The World

     The World is the twenty~first card of the Major Arcana, and the tweny~first step in the journey of life. Depicted on this card is an androgynous figure dacing with two wands in its hands surrounded by a wreath of leaves, with the four horseman of the apocolypse in the corners. The world is a card of completion the wreath is that of an initiate and the dancing figure is that of the combined yin and yang (male/female) aspects of all things. This card is often considered to be the last card of the Major Arcana and the last step of the journey of live. When this card comes into your spread it's there to remind you that "The world is your's when you realize your part in it."
     This card is a gentle card of completion. In your spread it's tends to remind you that the universe is the creator of all things and that you have a small yet significant part in the creation. We must always remember that we don't direct the play of life we are actors with a small yet significant part in it. We play our part but realize that we with the rest of creation have and equal part in the scheme of things. This cards presence is a humbling one. It's the card of completion of the journey yet a reminder that the journey must continue.

     There is a myriad of symbolisms on this and many of the other cards in both the major and minor arcana. In order to present a comprehensive and easy to use as a reference source set of pages for this and other cards, I will refrain from going into great detail regarding the individual symbols on the cards.
