Fool's Journey Day 22
With The Vice Versa deck the original side is called This Side and the added side is called That Side. There is no good side or bad side or right side and reverse side. It simply another aspect of the card.
The next step on our journey is 21- The World
This side: A laurel wreath looped with gold rings forms a portal between worlds and through this opening a dancer emerges, veiled in purple, the color of wisdom. She is ecstatic and free from all constriction. At the corners of the wreath are images representing the 4 fixed signs of the zodiac: Aquarius (angel) Scorpio (eagle) Leo (lion) and Taurus (bull) as well as the 4 elements and archangels.
In a reading: Completion. This is the last card in the Major Arcana and the 4 divine beings are here to see that a cycle has reached its end. The dancer (from the back of the Death card,) and her pose evokes joy and spiritual surrender. Life has triumphed and the soul renewed. You did it. Now get ready to start the next cycle!
That side: Now, the wreath is an ouroboros, no beginning and no end. The snake eating its own tail represents eternal movement and regeneration. Energy that is consumed and renewed. The cyclical nature of all things, starting over after it ends.
In a reading: If you are not feeling any sense of completion think about things as cycles instead of a straight line. Everything is linked but we need to mark milestones. Acknowledge the achievements and be joyful. Don't hurry onward - everything is happening just as it should.
