Then you get your reward: The World. A laurel wreath of achievement and a sense of how you fit perfectly in the universal flow of life. Comfortable, confident,

Today we look at the final challenge...the Moon. The Moon is a tricky card, full of unknowns. In this case, it is about how to travel your path when all around you is dark and uncertain. In some ways it is easier than you'd thing...but also more challenging, as it does require faith, faith in your personal spiritual compass.
