For the week of September 8, 2013 I am using Tarot of the Origins by Sergio Toppi (Lo Scarabeo). My card is THE STAR (Key 17), reversed.
|Tarot of the Origins|
This is the second week in a row I am getting a super-positive Major Arcana card -- reversed. (Last week it was The Sun, reversed.)
The LWB that comes with Tarot of the Origins does not interpret reversals. Manfredi Toraldo offers this interpretation of the upright Star: "The primordial spark rediscovered. Represents a Wish, the Dream, a Direction."
The dominant color in this card is blue, which I view as representing spirituality, the unconscious, tranquility, truth, and thoughtfulness. In numerology, the number 17 reduces to 6, which I view as representing adjustment in thoughts or attitudes, peace, harmony, and balance.
In the upright version of this card, two large hands coming from above break open a rock, sending a shower of sparks downward, where they seem to burst into a large star. When we turn the card upside down, the hands rise up from the bottom of the card, and when the rock breaks, the sparks fly upwards, bursting into a star high above.
To me, this suggests a "wish, dream, direction" being released into the heavens, becoming a starburst in the night sky. (Wish I may, wish I might... have the wish I wish tonight.) Yet this is more than a mere "wish." With the upright card, it's as if a superior being is showering us with magic from above. Reversed, the hands could be my hands, working to break open the rock to release the magic, to create a shining star -- symbol of wishes come true. I find the reversed position of this card to be quite inspirational!
As I work on various creative projects this week, I will visualize my energy opening the treasures that lie within, sending them upward and outward into the stars.
