The Star

FROM: "...the Star will light your way. Its light is not a blinding flash like the lightning bolt of the Tower, but a soft radiating glow that warms and comforts..." and "When you cannot help yourself, the Star tells you to look to the heavens for guidance. Or, more appropriately, look to the spark of divinity that lies within yourself that you could not see or acknowledge before. Each of us has a little piece of the Star deep inside, waiting to cast its light into the world to light the way." Also, "The Star is a card of faith, both in your own power, and in powers greater than your own. ... What exactly is faith? It could be said that faith is a conscious belief in an unconscious experience, of which we may not be directly aware, but of which we can still feel the effects. This definition fits both belief in a deity and belief in your own abilities. Having faith in any power will allow that power to manifest in your life. Believing that something will happen is as sure a way as any to make it happen."
See the above website for more, as their explanation of the card is long and detailed. It's a great site, very insightful, referencing other cards in their explanations to make a full understanding of the Tarot, not just this single card.
I've been drawing many Major Arcana cards. I wonder what that's all about???

I always interpret lots of Major Arcana cards as...big things are on the horizon! ;-)

The Star is one of my favorites. I picked up a new deck recently. It's a nontraditional deck called the "Celtid Dragon Tarot." It shows the Star as seven happy orange dragons flying among comets in outer space!

D'oh. I should use spell check. I meant "Celtic Dragon Tarot."

Can you tell that the swearing off of caffeine is not going so well for me? :-P
