inner wholeness, patience and perseverance, imperfection, duality

21 - The Universe

Author: Anja Heij

"The Universe is the Celebration of the Great Work accomplished."

The Universe card is a complement of the Fool card. Where the Fool came out of the womb to begin a new adventure, so dances the virgin on this card back into the womb of the Universe. She has reached inner wholeness, totality, paradise by overcoming duality (depicted by the snake), by actively giving herself to the world.

Meaning: accomplishment, totality, success, synthesis, wholeness, completion, fulfillment, the path of liberation.

Reverse: imperfection, delay, opposition, inertia, failure to complete a task one starts, patience and perseverance.
