A Dancing Saturn

#21 The World from the Smith Waite Tarot

In the Golden Dawn system of Tarot/Astrology, the World card is associated with Saturn.

At least on a superficial level, such an association always seemed a little odd to me.

Though of course I see that both the planet and the card have rings circling a central figure, there’s a definite feeling of celebration in the World card that seems missing in Saturn’s astrological reputation as a task-master.

Seeing the video below called Around Saturn by Fabio Di Donato though, gave me a whole new way of looking at the planet.

Just as the lady in the World is always dancing, if you look at Saturn from the right perspective, it’s always dancing too!
