At the beginning of the week the World, the last card in the Major Arcana, card came out from the Joie de Vivre Tarot published and used with the permission of U.S. Games Systems. c. 2011. All right reserved https://www.usgamesinc.com/Joie-de-Vivre-Tarot/ The Key words for the World are fulfillment, completion, endings and celebration.
On the card you see a Merlion, a Lions head with a Merman’s tail, two hearts atop his antenna on his mane with a star in the middle. This Merlion’s name is Vitality. He is protecting the World or sphere with the Rabbit called Unity inside who has a big Heart.
Our month of July has come to it’s fulfillment and now we begin again in August with our New Moon in Leo. We also celebrate a new season from Celtic celebration of Lughnasadh or Lammas was the wedding of the Sun god Lugh to the Earth Goddess, causing the ripening of crops; marking the beginning of the first Harvest and season. The Church then transformed it to making the Harvest Loaf for Mass.
This month holds all the possibilities to begin again with an open heart. It’s always with our heart that we see, that we feel and open it up for giving and receiving. And like the Little Prince said “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” So let’s open our hearts to see rightly this month in the spirit of Unity.
