Text description for this card is copyright 2013 Satyros Phil Brucato:

There’s strength in Unity. Here, the illusion of tribal “otherness” fades away, replaced by an awareness that “All Are One and One are All.” In this Dance, we come together, transcend our separations, and seek wisdom from the blending of traditions rather than the rigidity of a single approach. The Dance of Unity heals divisions, shares blessings, and calls people together in a loving whole. In this new millennium, Unity may be the ultimate path of human survival.

And yet, as we Dance this circle, we must be careful not to lose ourselves in it. It’s far too easy to pat ourselves on our collective back while ignoring the cracks beneath our feet. There’s a balance between Self-ishness and the total loss of Self; without that balance, we risk losing the precious contributions that difference brings. We are creatures of diversity, whose cultural and biological differences combine to make a stronger whole. Without that balance, we’re just “spinning our wheels,” making pretty designs but ultimately going nowhere.

I love the masked phantom above human figure, which to me suggests a theme of ascension, derived from finding said unity or inner piece. I kind of like how many spiritual facets come together here as well.

Hoop Dance! Woot! Sorry, one of my favorites. I thought it was a Lakota tribal dance because they were always doing it at Pow Wows. Instead, it was my tribes, and the Lakotas were thanking us for coming.
