When I first saw this card I was reminded of the old engravings of the geocentric universe (Ptolemaic cosmology) where the earth is at the center, surrounded by the spheres of the moon, sun, and planets. The inmost spheres are the elements, fire air water and earth.

Here instead we have that light at the center, that energy that's within everything. Then the circles of plant and animal life, and enfolding them is the shimmering rainbow sphere (fire? ether? spirit?) Surrounding it all is the cosmos.

happyfish's interpretation really helped me with what I was seeing, so thank you
