The World is the culmination of the Tarot archetypal journey; it speaks of wholeness and numinous revelation. The ancient philosophers and alchemists described the world as a living spiritual being and referred to it as Anima Mundi; the soul of the world. I was inspired by a 14th century engraving of Anima Mundi. In this tarot card Anima Mundi is surrounded by the constellations of Leo, Aquila and Taurus. The angel represents the great mystery. Anima Mundi stands with one foot on earth, one on water with her head in the stars. She wears a wreath of triumph. Anima Mundi is a woman who might come from any continent. She represents the origin of life with the sun radiating from her womb. Her breasts are the full and new moons. It is my belief that when we identify with the soul of the world and realize that we are all one living entity, we will finally achieve our birthright of peace and prosperity.

Meaning: The World shows you that you are connected to all that is.
