The World Tarot Card Description

The World card in the tarot deck has a dancing figure at the center. The dancing figure on the card has one leg crossed over the other and holds a wand in either hand. She symbolizes balance and evolution in movement. The fulfillment and unity that she represents is not one that is static, but ever-changing, dynamic and eternal.

The green wreath of flowers that surrounds the central figure is a symbol of success, while the red ribbons that wrap around it are reminiscent of infinity. There are four figures on each corner of the card – and they are the same ones that are in the Wheel of Fortune. The four figures represent Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius and Taurus – representative of the four corners of the universe, the four elements, and the four evangelicals. Together, they symbolize the harmony between all of their energies.

Upright World Meaning

To encounter the World in your cards is to encounter a great unity and wholeness. It symbolizes the moment when the inner and the outer worlds – self and

Therefore, the ogham symbol is associated with strength and power. It’s also sacred to the Celtic smith god Govannon or Goibniu, and the Saxon smith god Weyland, who are associated with strength, endurance, and the attainment of skill.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

This is a time of reward for good works.
Those you have helped want to show their gratitude.
Benefits come both from on high and from the humble you uplifted.
Accept all gifts graciously, though the reward may not be what you truly need or hoped for.
Some may bestow more than they can afford to give, but you must realize that they need to feel that they have repaid you.

Sloth

The sloth spirit animal is telling you to slow down. When the sloth spirit guide comes your way, it means that you have been moving too fast for your own good.

Perhaps, you need to take time off your busy schedule and pay attention to the other areas of your life.

Posting Times and Location for Everyday Posts

It was brought to my attention that the daily posts would be more helpful to plan spells and rituals or to know what your horoscope is the day before. Starting on May 30, 2022, the time for the northern hemisphere posts will be as follows – the date before and the date of and for the southern hemisphere the date before. Thank you to the reader that answered my survey and pointed this out to me, great idea!

Planetary position times have been moved from 5:00 PM for everywhere to 12:00 PM for everywhere. And I thought just going through clock changes was rough LOL.

All posts times for both hemispheres are given in Central Daylight Savings time zone! Times might be different on some days due to interruptions to my regular working time, like my fur kids needing extra attention, illness, a fibromyalgia flare, or life in general. You can use this link to find out what time the posts go live for your local time zone to find your local time and day

Starting for the N. H. Monday, May 30th and S. H. Tuesday May 31 Some Minor Changes to Everyday Posts Will be Happening

I am burning myself out working 7 days – 5 to 6 hours a day almost every week. So instead of taking a random day off here and there I am going to start taking every Monday off, which is Tuesday in the southern hemisphere, on Monday, May 30th.

What does this mean for the regular daily posts? For the northern hemisphere the posts on Sunday afternoons starting at 3:59 PM CDT will not be posted again on Monday morning and no daily horoscope, astronomy picture, and today in history posts. Tuesday’s day before posts will still start to go live at 3:59 PM CDT on Monday. For the southern hemisphere there will be no changes. Thankfully with the exception of the specific posts listed above I can work a head of the current date. You can find Monday’s or Tuesday’s information by clicking on the hyperlinks in each specific post.

I hope you all understand why I need to do this for my own mental health and to get household chores done. Also, with it going into summer here I also have outdoor things to do like help mow our lawn, weed flower/vegetable beds, etc. I am up at 6:30 every day to take my fur kids out and then immediately start working on getting posts ready for all of you. I also will be less likely to miss posting a daily post or putting the wrong date on it. Every day I work with 6 different time zones and today, tomorrow, and the next day. I will be adding posts for the southern hemisphere for your tomorrow’s witchcraft/magickal correspondences, spell for today, and both deviational journals so you have some of the same heads up as the northern hemisphere gets. The fun part of all of this is spending a good portion of my northern hemisphere’s Sundays on the computer so I can have the next day off.

I will be available Tuesday through Sunday any time between 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM CDT for Skype online meetings with students or anyone else that would like to chat with me personally. I will host online open chats, and online coven gatherings on the specific dates and times. If an Esbat or Sabbat falls on a Monday and I will host the gathering. If a full or new moon falls close to the date of a Sabbat, the Sabbat will be held that month but not an Esbat gathering. I will not be answering emails or schedule one-on-one meetings on Mondays no matter what. I ask if you want a one-on-one meeting with me that you send an email to ladybeltane@aol.com giving me 2 or 3 days and times that work for you and I will either pick one of those or suggest a different day and time that fit better into my schedule.

As I do not receive any type of regular salary or hour pay for bring you these posts it is a labor of love. I only earn if I am lucky enough to have enough posts read on average $80.00 USD per month. Let me ask how many of you would work 7 days a week 5 to 6 hours every day for this type of wages without knowing if what you are producing is even liked by those who follow your website? If you could just click the like button on posts once in a while and leave a comment that would help me to know what to post and what not to post.

Until we meet again dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may you blessed be.

Casting meaning: Ear symbolizes the grave that we will all return to. However the only way that we can die is because there was life to begin with. “Without life, there is no death and without time there is no life.” More generally Ear signifies the unavoidable end of all things.

Druid Ogham

Ruis

Regret, pride, shame, embarrassment, learning from experience, resolution

Tree: Elder (Sambucus spp.)

Letter: R

Shame isn’t all bad and does not deserve a uniformly awful reputation. Without shame and the fear of being shamed, every human child would be demonically bratty. Shame is a limit that informs us to keep our own ego in check. It is often about considering others. Having shame about one’s own past behavior is motivation to avoid shameful behaviors such as cheating and stealing.

Shame is an emotion that demands confrontation. All too often, people run away from what shames them, attempt to excuse themselves from wrongful or immoral behavior because they’re too cowardly to face what they have done or to admit their responsibility in causing their own misfortunes or the misfortune of others. Ruis indicates a willingness to face one’s own shame and to do with shame what it was meant for, and that is to use shame of the past to build oneself into a better person for the present and future. Ashamed of something you did? How can you make yourself into the type of person who would never even think of doing something like that? Overcome being the type of person who would engage in the shameful behavior and you become the master of it; you won’t have the remotest chance of repeating such a mistake. Did you become embarrassed because you did something you now understand to be greedy? Then learn to balance thriftiness with generosity. Adjust to the circumstance rather than overreacting to it. Are you ashamed about cheating on a boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse? Become a person who would never cheat on your boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse regardless of conditions, which could mean an assortment of outcomes: sticking to a resolution of no cheating and staying together, admitting one’s sexual preferences and going with the flow, changing the person you are with, or being single for a long time.

Because humans tend to remember negative experiences more easily than positive ones, it’s important when you draw Ruis to acknowledge the things you are not ashamed of about yourself. For every bad or shameful thing you’ve done, remember there are a thousand shameful things you avoided. Maybe it is time to appreciate the places you could have gone horribly wrong and did not.

Questions when you draw Ruis: …

Earth above and Earth below:
The Earth contains and sustains.
In this situation, the Superior Person should not take the initiative; he should follow the initiative of another.
He should seek receptive allies in the southwest; he should break ties with immovable allies in the northeast.

Responsive devotion.

Sublime Success if you keep to your course.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

This is a time for dealing with reality as it is, not as you would have it be.
If you realize that in this situation you are the receptor, not the transmitter of the stimulus, you will find yourself reaching goals that seemed unattainable under your own steam.
If you persist in futile efforts to be the Shaper rather than the Shaped, you will completely miss this unique opportunity.
