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!!

When The Tower Is The Answer (To Your Love Problem)
So I was doing a reading for someone the other day. And the topic was love. And the first card was the Tower. And I said JUMP. The Tower is a prison until you jump. Until you change your consciousness. How do you change your consciousness? I got the Death card. Excavation needed. DIG. Sh

And A Dolphin For You: Full Moon in Pisces (Sept 8th)
The Full Moon in Pisces is on Monday. Here are some things to keep in mind: -it can be hard to find your balance on Full Moon day and even for a couple days before or after. The Sun and the Moon are in opposition to each other. The tendency is to see-saw between Sun and Moon, light and dark.

How much pain can you bear comfortably? Hmm. Comfortably is a weird word here, isn't it. Apparently I can bear a fair amount of mental pain. Assimilate it. Integrate it. Learn from it. Teach from it. I have a Moon Pluto conjunction in Virgo in my natal chart (in my First House). You astrology fans k

In one of my chat rooms this morning (I run a couple private astrology/tarot/metaphysical chat rooms) a gal pulled a few Tarot cards for herself, which is her habit every morning.
