Stars Everywhere

#17 The Star from the Tarot of Marseille

On Christmas Eve, I posted a piece about the Star. Today I came across a magic trick that seems to turn everyone (or at least every card) into a Star.

Though card tricks aren’t typically my thing, I like the way this one plays out. The Tower, the Devil, and even Death are all miraculously transformed into the Star.

I don’t know if the magician in the video is aware of Tarot symbolism or not, but he chose his spread well.

The Star card represents renewed hope and healing after the darkest hours. And certainly Death, the Devil, and the Tower represent some of those dark times.

By changing them into the Star, it’s like he’s transforming darkness into light.

It’s a pretty nice message.

And not only does it manage to turn disaster, obsession, and grief into optimism and healing, it reminds us of something equally wonderful – that we’re all made of stardust.

#14 – Temperance

This is a great day to even things out. Balance and temperance are the energies surrounding you now. Can you bring your physical world into harmony with your emotional state?

Temperance is about that perfect mix, neither too much nor too little. It’s about becoming conscious of what you want to be both inside and out, and courageous enough to try.

You are responsible for any healing you might need. The first step is to acknowledge what might be out of balance and then start readjusting.

Sometimes it’s about finding a new way to meld your internal opposites; sometimes it’s about casting out what no longer works. In all cases though, it’s about being true to your self and connecting to the grander universe.

Try asking an angel for some help today. You might be surprised at the result.

Fools on Bikes

#0 The Fool from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot

There might be three of them, and there’s no little dog, but these guys certainly got me thinking of the Fool from Tarot’s Major Arcana.

The clip below shows Loschi, Pauli, and Jello enjoying an extraordinarily risky bike ride down a mountain.

And they make it look almost relaxing.

Like the Fool who doesn’t seem concerned at all that he’s headed for the ledge, these three men seem sure the Universe is going to look after them.

And apparently it did.

Moon in Aquarius – High Priestess in the Star's Clothing

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

The Moon moves into Aquarius today and stays there until Wednesday.

Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Star. In other words, her robes are gone and she’s naked as the bird in the tree behind her.

The Moon in Aquarius, or High Priestess in the Star’s clothing, can sometimes be emotionally stressful. Hope may be in the air, but it’s a cautious hope.

Emotionally you feel like sharing, bubbling over with dreams for the future. But your mind keeps getting in the way, reminding you that dreams can sometimes be nightmares.

Try not to spend what could be a nice time double guessing yourself or listing off all the reasons things could go wrong. They might. But they probably won’t.

Be real, but not a wet blanket. Rather than smothering your dreams, direct them with intelligence.

Page of Cups

Sweetness abounds when the page of cups is around.  This is a great day to communicate emotions – enthusiastically and without censor, especially to those you love.

There’s a lightness in the air and the sense that something new could be starting.  And it just might be.

It’s good to remember though, that there’s no need for you to commit to anything serious right now.  It’s still the time of freshness and beginnings.  Becoming heavy now would only dampen what’s still just growing.

Express yourself and let your imagination wander.

#20 Judgment from Georgie's Tarot

#20 – Judgment

Most likely, this is an important time.  You’re probably coming to the end of a long phase and are in the process of review.  Judgment might be a heavy word to use, but that’s likely the situation – you’re judging yourself and your progress to date.  How do you rate yourself?  How are you rating others?   Where do you want to go next?

There’s a strong element of resurrection in this energy.  As the phase you’re in comes to a close, you ready yourself for rebirth.  Listen carefully to what your soul is trying to tell you. What have you learned through these last years? What might you want to try again? What might you want to let go of? The big question is how might you be even more alive going forward?

Enjoy this time for what it is, though it might feel confusing and even a little anxiety-ridden. Soon there will be movement. Take a good look at your past, a good look at your present and envision what you want to do next. What do you want your life to be like tomorrow? It’s up to you to make it happen.

The Star on Christmas Eve

#17 The Star from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot

#17 The Star

It’s Christmas Eve tonight, when according to the story, thousands of years ago an especially bright star shone in the heavens above a manger in Bethlehem.

Three wise men, otherwise described as astrologers, followed the star to the manger and to the little baby Jesus, a newborn star on earth.

I’ve always liked that the Christmas story includes three astrologers bearing magical gifts for a baby.

And as a Tarot reader now, the ‘star’ part of the story is even more significant.

In Tarot, the Star represents hope, dreams and optimism for the future.

It’s the light after the storm, faith after a fall, and the ability to love with universal compassion and deep empathy.

It’s a perfect symbol to hang above the renewed hope of the Nativity, and what an ideal guide for the wise among us.

Whether you’re celebrating Christmas or not, I wish everyone the spirit of the Star tonight.

Shine bright and be love!

Moon in Capricorn – High Priestess in the Devil's Clothing

The High Priestess dressed as the Devil

High Priestess as the Devil

The Moon moves into Capricorn today and will stay there until Monday.

If you were to describe this transit using the Tarot, you might say that the High Priestess is wearing the Devil’s clothing. The virginal goddess has gotten downright beastly.

The Moon in Capricorn, or High Priestess in the Devil’s clothing, is a period of potential internal conflict. The physical world might seem to draw you away from what you typically believe to be right.

You might feel driven or compelled by behaviours and attitudes that go against the grain of your morality. It could be liberating or disturbing, depending on your secrets.

Whatever’s going on though, don’t be too hard on yourself. Get obsessions out of your system, and learn what you can about yourself while you do so.

You should be ready to move on soon. There’s nothing wrong with a little focused physicality. Just don’t get stuck.

Wheel of Fortune

Do it now!  It’s a fantastic day to get going on whatever project (especially a new one) you’ve been thinking about.  Opportunities abound for you to finally move forward with your plan.

Don’t be afraid if you think you can’t do it?  You’ve been spending plenty of time thinking about it.  Look close, you’ll see you have all you need to make it work.

The only thing that will slow you down is doing things the same old way.  Start fresh now.  You’re ready to go.
