The Aquarius moon forms a harsh square to unpredictable Uranus in the early morning hours today and then snuggles up to Saturn. The energy here could disrupt your normal sleep pattern, but try not to ignore your alarm clock this morning, tempting as it may be.
Luckily, we also see a supportive exchange of energy between the moon and the north node, which can have an invigorating effect, allowing us to find hope and visualize our plans for the future.
Later, a helpful aspect between the moon and sun lifts our spirits, confidence, and energy level, brightening the mood all around.
The positive vibes continue to roll in as a supportive aspect between the moon, Venus, and Mars helps you open your heart while connecting with your motivation, giving you the gumption needed to manifest your wildest dreams. Taking action right now should come easily, so make sure you’re directing your energy toward the things that are important and that can further your goals.
This cosmic climate is also great when it comes to relationships and matters of the heart, so try to set aside some time for that special someone. If you’re currently single, use the momentum of this day to enjoy your freedom, then engage in your favorite self-care activity to cap off a busy day!
The ongoing expansion of possibilities may result in some kind of overload today, making it very difficult to fully engage with a clear and methodical approach. The potential for surprising twists requires us to stay alert and flexible. Although there may be a very strong desire to ‘break with the past’, we cannot ignore the very powerful effects of inertia and intransigence. Although our intellect has been sharpened, emotional elements and adherence to tradition (“But we’ve always done it this way!”) keep us from making many quick advances. A Venus-Mars sextile may help us to bring a bit of charm to the situation but there isn’t much help for developing an effective approach to organizing the expanding possibilities and opportunities. We will need to rely on some kind of internal stabilizers to keep from becoming overwhelmed here.
The Star is a symbol of renewed hope after turbulent times. The hope comes from seeing your life through transcendentally. From this higher vantage point you can see the big picture and your real-life purpose. The Star asks you to follow your proverbial North Star, the compass point that leads you back to your authentic self, the best of who you really are. The Star is associated with the eternal, immortal part of your spirit. This authentic essence continues, long after your body has gone. By tuning into the eternal aspect of yourself, you can transcend any challenge you confront in the mundane world.
What is the meaning of your life? Have you lost perspective, becoming consumed with something that really isn’t that important in the long run? When was the last time you felt absolutely clear about your purpose?
The woman on the Star card has drawn the healing waters from the pool of the Universal collective. She is pouring some of these waters on the parched earth beside her, symbolizing a replenishment of her world, and the neglected parts of herself. What feels dry and parched in your consciousness? What needs replenishment and watering? The woman is taking some of the water for herself. She knows she is worthy, and it is wise to do so. By taking the gifts of the Universe to replenish herself, she will be able to share more of herself for the collective good.
The woman is also pouring some of the water back into the universal pool. She is giving something back to the collective, to improve and enrich it. “To whom much is given, much is required.” If she keeps returning some of the water to the pool, she will ensure it never dries up and will be able to draw future blessings from it when needed.
The Major Arcana in the Tarot can be interpreted as a path laid out in symbols toward a deeper understanding of the self. In the Major Arcana, the Star is numbered XVII, and occurs immediately after the most challenging cards (XII The Hanged Man, XIII Death, XV The Devil, XVI The Tower). After accepting sacrifice, death, confronting the shadow self, and returning to her true nature, the superficial layers of the ego are stripped away. The Star represents the imperishable light within you that transcends the fears of the ego. This is the eternal starlight of Spirit. Each of us possesses this light. This light is always sparkling within us.
However, sometimes it is so buried beneath burdens, and layers of ego and fear, that it is hard to feel or see. Some people forget this light exists altogether, until they see a laughing baby, or are moved by a pivotal (sometimes traumatic) life event. The Star card reminds us that our inner light exists. When we draw from its eternal waters, we can bounce back from death and defeat, transcending all challenges. Knowing this, we come to understand there is really nothing to fear…
In the background sitting in a tree is an Ibis bird. The Ibis was very sacred in ancient Egypt. It is the emblem of the God of Wisdom, Thoth. The Ibis calls us to the wisdom we need to access in order to fly above our present challenges. The Ibis grant the perspective of the big picture high on his tree. He is the God of the Moon and of writing. Perhaps it’s time to journal your deeper revelations.
The Star reminds you to replenish yourself by accessing the transcendent light within. When you have drawn from the power of this light pass along its blessings and reinvest in the Universal pool. Open your eyes to where you are truly needed in your world. If you’ve ever helped the homeless or sat with an old lonely lady that needed to talk or left a huge tip and a sweet note for a hotel maid or waitress in a rough life patch, then you’ve been doing the work of the Star. You’ve been replenishing the waters of the collective good. The Star is all about restoring hope in yourself and others.
Follow your North Star back to the best parts of you, and your true purpose.
