Breaking Through the Boundary of Personality Consciousness (Saturn) to Experience Wholeness (Tarot, The World)
Happiness is Wholeness! The tarot card The World is the same archetype as Saturn—the end, or better said the edge ,of personality/ego consciousness, meaning the boundary that separates this world from the next is represented, as an archetype, as the planet Saturn.
My astrology teacher says that when a progressed Saturn is retrograde in a personal chart, there is an opening between the conscious mind and sub-conscious or super-conscious (one could also say ‘higher mind’)—i.e. a channel is created. I found that information interesting because it was around 1999 that I began to do psychic readings professionally, meaning it turned into being my only source of income–therefore, professional. And that’s right around the time that my progressed Saturn turned retrograde. I only share that since it relates to the correlation of Saturn to The World tarot card and the channel between dimensions or levels of mind.
Typically, the World Card indicates the end of the cycle and the meaning is much like this: you’ve gone as far as you can for now and a new cycle is beginning.
When I programmed my tarot cards with personal memories, this card related to the memory of driving late at night on my way from Florida to Ohio. I ran off the road in a rainstorm and nearly went off a cliff! That was as far as I was going THAT night, for sure! I turned around and held up at the last Motel I passed until the next day.
In order to program tarot cards for personal memory meanings, draw a card without looking at it and ask your soul-mind to supply you with a memory to attribute to the meaning of that card.
Saturn rules time, limitations, form, and as mentioned above – boundaries, and the end of cycle.
When we can break through these boundaries in consciousness, we can have what some would call an experience similar to those who report NDE’s… near death experiences.
We can induce our self into these areas of breakthrough by doing yogic-type breathing and clearing of the chakras. A re-centering of the personality occurs which brings spiritual openings to the Greater Self in dreams and meditations. And then we see the human comedy of all past lives and present from a perspective of understanding, compassionate acceptance, and non-attachment. It can be shattering until you are ready for it but you completely understand that–there is no self!
From this standpoint, one begins to understand that there is, in the end, no division between a literal and symbolic world. There is simply ONE WORLD where The Divine is a sphere whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere—or as Wayne Dyer likes to point out “now here”.
When we can achieve such a consciousness, all is both one ‘and’ many and everything is in its place in the ever transforming play of creation.
From this perspective there is no reincarnation because the individual soul that is said to be reborn has no separate reality except as one of the billions of sparks in the greater mind!
This is the realization that many of those who have had near-death experiences have reached. (I almost had one of those on the night I ran off the road in the rain!)
Anyway, this is the epitome of this card’s meaning and of today’s message. Like Jonathan Livingston Seagull, when we go as far as we can, another dimension opens and we fly through the opening to the higher one.
The good news is that we can do it with our feet on the ground upon the earth when we can channel through the openings in the Saturn boundary of consciousness and experience wholeness. And thus ends the Cosmic Communiqué for today.
PS– This is one tarot card that I could write book about but speaking of SATURN ruling time… must fly for now. See you tomorrow… wait! before I go, here’s the Heart Sutra (gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā) which pretty much explains it….
