The Star: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
1-26-21 through 2-02-21
The Star is this week’s Tarotcast card. It inspires us to reach for our highest potential. We’re guaranteed to reach our goals and aspirations guided by the Star’s steady light. This card represents healing of all kinds – physical, emotional and spiritual. The embodiment of hope and promise. So, this card affirms the eternal renewal available to all living beings.
On the Tree of Life The Star card travels Path 15. Sephiroth or sphere 2, Chokmah (Wisdom). Divine Masculine/Yang energy joined with sephiroth or sphere 6, Tiphareth (Beauty). Sphere of the Sun – energy in completely balanced manifestation. The Hebrew letter of this card – He’ – means “a window.” No matter what doors may have closed for us, a new door – or a window – is opening this week. Either opening can bring in fresh air and new possibilities. Use whichever presents itself to experience the feeling of rebirth and renewal. Because this is the card of hope, we see the promise of things yet unseen and still-to-come.
The Star is the zodiacal trump of Aquarius, in which Saturn rules with Neptune exalted. This attribution comes from ancient astrology. The more modern attribution is Uranus ruling Aquarius. Also, Aquarius, the water-bearer is an Air sign – often mistaken for one of the water signs.
In real-time astrology, the Sun is transiting Air-sign Aquarius. This is the perfect match to this week’s card – and how I love it when this happens!
“Every man and every woman is a star.”
On January 28th we have a Full Moon in Fire-sign Leo – Aquarius’ polar opposite. This occurs near a Sun-Jupiter conjunction. It stokes our optimism, but can be impulsive and careless. This Full Moon can stimulate our desire to express ourselves. We’re aware of our needs for creativity and romance. This energy exposes or sheds light on important issues. If we’ve neglected ourselves or ignored our needs, now is the time to get back in balance.
“Everybody is a star…”
Mercury retrogrades in Aquarius on January 30th. We turn toward humanitarian concerns. Our ideals motivate us to aim high. We’re filled with inventive and innovative ideas. But all the usual Mercury retrograde cautions apply.
“We are stardust, we are golden, we are billion-year-old carbon…”
On February 1st Venus enters Aquarius. The highlight is on social relationships. We yearn for freedom and independence. We seek harmony between our needs for individuality and connection to others. In romantic relationships we look for friendship in our love partner. Unselfishness, fairness and self-actualization are important now.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of the Star includes falling into illusions. Denial of facts or escape from reality. We’re encouraged to hope. Yet, we’re also cautioned to avoid going overboard into pigs-fly-to-the-moon territory.
Let’s focus on the fresh promises manifesting in all areas of our lives.
Power colors: violet, sky blue, mauve, white and pale purple.
Power stones: Zircon, amber, malachite, aquamarine, rose quartz, sapphire or lapis. Wear as jewelry or carry as power stones to recognize the order of the Universe. The rightness of things as they are in this present moment. The opportunities and rewards that we’ll realize in the future.
Power metal: uranium. Not wearable, but valuable. A reminder of how we can harness tremendous power. Power used for either positive or destructive ends. Choose well.
Power fragrances: jasmine, rose and almond. These make it easy to go with the flow. Aquarius is the Water-Bearer. Take a luxurious bath or make a trip to the spa (invite a friend) for a special treat this week.
Power foods: foods prepared with almonds. Rose hips or jasmine teas. Make sure to drink plenty of pure, fresh water and breathe fresh outdoor air. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
