Today’s card is The Star, number Sixteen of the Major Arcana. The Star Tarot card is about reconnecting one’s soul with the divine — the transcending of personality, family, community, and reputation. It has to do ultimately with the freedom to be one’s self. The soul is responding to celestial influences — forces that can provide the personality with a stronger sense of purpose. The Star card helps us to remember our exalted origins and our attraction to a higher union.
This card could also be called The Celestial Mandate — that which refers us back to our reason for being, our mission in this lifetime. The Star reminds us that, in a sense, we are agents of divine will in our day-to-day lives. If we let go of the idea that we are supposed to be in control, we can more easily notice and appreciate the synchronicities that are nudging us along. In this way, we become more conscious of the invisible helping hand, and we better understand our place within — and value to — the larger cosmos.
The Star card advises that you rededicate yourself to your higher values, increase your spiritual cultivation and meditation practice, and surrender to the greater good. Connect to your higher self — a being of a larger realm traveling on an evolutionary course that started long ago and runs indefinitely into the future. This is the part you wish to contact and communicate with. Spend time in reflection and embrace your Spiritual mission. This card says to listen for the voice within. Anything that would interfere with this communion may not be serving your best interests right now.
This card is especially timely for me in particular as I am leaving for Lothlorien Nature Sanctuary after I post this to attend ElfFest, a spiritual retreat that is in its 35th year. It will be my 30th year and I am excited to be offering a workshop for those at the festival, sharing my knowledge at the land where I placed my feet on this path 30 years ago. For those that will be joining me there, I am humbled and can’t wait to see you all. To those who are just reading this and feel it tugging at them in a special way, LISTEN! You are being called to walk the path. Now is the time to act on the voice within and find our purpose in the ascension of mankind.
May the Star inspire your spirit to new heights today!
