THE WORLD OVERVIEW
The World steps into her ouroboros ring, ready to celebrate her achievements. As she steps up the ring begins to ascend, light shining down from above and flooding her senses with the soft hum of her keys: Success. Completion. You did it. It carries her higher, and she feels her whole body begin to vibrate with this upgrade of consciousness. She senses the union of her spiritual and earthly selves, and her reality shifts as her inner spiritual landscape merges with her outer reality. She remembers that moment, long ago, when she first stepped off the edge of the cliff and into the Fool card, falling right into a sacred geometric lesson with all of her innocence in tow. Now, inside of that very same same sacred geometric ring, she climbs effortlessly. She has mastered this level of awareness and its cycle of lessons have become an integral part of her. She holds the rings lovingly. In them, she senses a support system, a teacher, a friend… all of the wisdom she has gained on her journey. She learned, she tried, she fell, she stood up again and now, she has finally arrived. Celebrating this joyous moment, every cell falls into resonance with the Universe. And she rises. She knows that the end of one cycle signifies the beginning of another, and it fills her heart with joy to know that she will jump back into the position of the Fool on a new journey. Soon. But for now, the sweetness of success awaits.
