The Star! IMAX: Hubble 3-D journey to explore the faraway galaxies viewed by the Hubble Space Telescope in its travels throughout the cosmos. The moment I drew this tarot card, it reminded me that I forgot to add the Hubble film to my movie list on Netflix. Now that I’ve done so, it’s on to the divination message for today. It’s a perfect card for this Memorial Day weekend when so many planets, including the Moon today are in relaxing and comfort seeking Taurus. Sunny with temperatures in the high 80’s, with light breezes, a blue sky and puffy white clouds here and there, grace the day.
What is even more beautiful (to me) and magical to boot is the night sky when the stars are bright and beautiful. Here in the mountains, without city lights, the night skies are enchanting and mystical. That’s the epitome of today’s message and it is associated with the words meditation and hope and that’s how we feel when we gaze up into a star filled sky! We can’t seem to help the associated feelings of stillness that the inner reflective mood that star-gazing supports and encourages. Stars connect us with our Soul.
This is undeniably my most favorite card in the deck! The astrological sign that rules this card is Aquarius and the archetype of that sign, ruled by Uranus, represents the individual unconscious mind—we might even say “soul”. The image on most tarot cards of The Star picture a water scene and water is associated with healing and also emotions—we might say then that emotional healing and the flowing waters of the inner life are represented here. Star gazing puts us in touch with that inner flow and that is what we are searching for when we meditate—that same feeling of connection to ‘total mind’ that star-gazing produces within us. Total mind is the connection with ego or physical mind to soul-mind to bring wholeness and completeness to the psyche—it’s the feeling of missing nothing and being totally present and fully plugged in or connected on all levels. That’s why this card is often associated with intuition and why it is said that star-gazing is an act of meditation.
By the way, a lot of people think Aquarius is a water sign, its Air and therefore associated with Mind and associate with visions or visionaries. I think of Uranus/Aquarius energy as flashes in the mind, intuitive flashes of guidance from the soul coming through wherever Uranus and Aquarius energy is in the chart. Neptune just moved through its sojourn in Aquarius–the linking of Universal Mind or Ocean of Cosmic consciousness which is Neptune filtered into our individual soul-mind which is Aquarius.
Now Neptune is in its own sign, Pisces. We may, therefore, have glimpses from our connection to cosmic mind (Neptune) of the larger soul of humanity or the universe itself (Pisces). In other words, while we may have been getting flashes of the blueprint for our individual soul when Neptune was in Aquarius, now that it’s in Pisces, humanity at large could be plugged into the cosmos at large. We will have to see how that plays out—shared dreams, shared spirituality, shared visions!
Intuitively, I’ve always felt that we can draw energy from the Sun, Moon, Mountain Tops and the Stars right into our self to heal, balance and energize our totally 4-body system (the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual). I do that regularly. Today’s cosmic communiqué is a reminder of connecting and drawing down the energy of the stars.
While it’s lesser substitute, looking at Hubble Telescope images on the computer has the same effect—at least for me it does. I have a Hubble gadget on my i-google page.

Viewing the night sky and space images can calm the mind and heart and open the channel of inspiration—the channel to spirit. When our mind and heart are calm we are open to the inner flow and can follow that flow into soul-mind and spirit world.
At twilight time, the magic of the first star that shines at night is undeniably mystical. Don’t forget to make a wish…
Starlight star bright,
The first star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
Makes no difference who you are
Will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
I wish you a Walt Disney Magic Kingdom kind of day!
(Minus the crowds of course)
PS – The last time Neptune entered Pisces was from 1847 to 1862. If you’re interested in the recent transition of Neptune into Pisces, here’s a little video clip one of my favorite astrologers talking about this very thing:
I highly recommend viewing that video!
