This Beautiful Place: Meditation on the Star (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in aquarius" The Star is the future.
It’s not here now, not here yet. Stars are far away. This card always feels vague to me. Hope? Yay! Whatever.

I know I know, context is everything. I rather see the Star than the Tower but when I see the Star, I shrug my shoulders. I just don’t “feel” it.

Hope, but how do we get there? 

It’s a card of healing and peace and light, yes. But what else is it? How do we get to this beautiful place? 

Important to remember that the Star follows the Tower in the Major Arcana. Hope follows crisis and loss. The Star is what is left. The Star is us. We’re naked. We’ve been destroyed by the Tower but somehow we found water. We eventually got home after wilderness and wasteland. The Star reminds us to look up.

Some Star keywords:

-light at end of tunnel
-recovery, you will be healthy again, you’ll have energy again
-being open where once you were closed, closed off
-peace of mind, tranquility
-things will get better
-let your worries go, pour them out

Dear Readers, do you see The Star?

    Agreed. I feel the “shrug”.

    Yes, I see The Star. It is the 7th Race of Man, perfected humanity, when we are all complete. It’s Light Years away, but still visible to us, as we can see the stars in the night sky, and anticipate the journey.

    I see The Star as the gift from the Underworld journey, what we can take back with us to the world above. When we experience profound insight after undergoing struggle, this is The Star’s gift. It’s the cosmic answer to the question we’ve been asking.

    Thank you for this wonderful series, Aliza!!

YouTube is an incredible resource. So many spiritual teachers, so many topics, there's not time enough to watch it all and hear and learn. I was listening to a video the other day and I'll tell you what I took away from it. I took away "I don't know."  As a precise point of spiritual wisdom. To get

Today's Tarot : The Magician
I feel like writing about one of the more gruesome cards. A card we don't like to see. That's my idea of Sunday night fun. So I'm flipping through my deck because I didn't want to write about the Five of Cups (which I pulled) even though Five of Cups IS a gruesome card. I'm not in the mood. I want s

I'm glad to see the Queen of Wands (Rods) today. She's here as a reminder. Not to grovel. Not to beg. Not to be or do anything less than Queen of Fire behavior. She is the Witch. She is sexual. Creati

Today's Tarot: Five of Cups
Truth is, I cheated. The first card I pulled was Temperance. And I pulled this card with the intention of… nothing more than to write about it here.  I wasn't asking for advice or "what I need to know" or show me 2015 Tarot!  None of that. I decided to skip over the Temperance card because ea
