XXI The World Madrone of Blades Eight of Bells
MAJOR ARCANA: The lesson, challenge, gift, or opportunity in this situation.
XXI - The World:
The lodestone forms the heart of an iron dancer with a bell body, a blade mask that splits the air, coiled legs that dance on water, and spike hands trailing fire. Beyond are the interlocking iron crystals of the earth's core. Knowing her limits and fully using the space within them, she dances arrival, completion, and wholeness.
SPIRIT GUIDE: An aspect of yourself to draw on or develop.
Madrone of Blades: Water of Air.
Crowned with madrone leaves, she holds an owl feather pen and a knife for cutting reeds to make papyrus and a gourd reed pipe. She is a record-keeper and the source of the River that flows between worlds. Her wisdom and tight emotional control are hard-won, but she willingly shares her learning and clear thoughts.
NUMBER CARD: A focus for action or something that needs attention.
Eight of Bells:
Traditional West African dance bells on an ankle bracelet forged with podlike rattles. The bells are no use alone, and each is made with the consistent skill of long-term study and repetition.
