The STAR – #17
The Guiding Light/Universal Guidance
With the aftermath of ‘The Tower’ one will feel a little torn apart. The Star is the calm after the storm. It offers peace and rest. One’s life is cycling all the time. Your mind, body and emotions are always fluctuating and stretching, taking you to dark corners and then to the doorway of light. The Star Key is the “Guiding Light” that one seeks out at these times. You are now looking for a deeper meaning in life. You are searching for ‘your’ truth. You are looking for peace of mind.
The Star offers you guidance, wholeness, inspiration and focus on your path towards understanding your destiny in the universal plan. It reminds you that the universe provides you with a continuous light shining on your individual path as you travel through life’s experiences. When you feel lost, experience a lack of hope, or find yourself avoiding situations, The Star shines brightly on your true inner self. It helps you to trust your inner voice/intuition, to open up and receive. By receiving the universal light we connect to a deeper understanding, which leads to healing, which leads to self-esteem, self-love and self-trust, which then opens us up to receive cosmic inspiration from the divine light. The Star brings hope.
The stars are ancient. They glow with universal wisdom, lessons and answers. The light that we allow ourselves to accept generates and manifests light around us and our outer world. Thus, as within, so without.
Meditate and quiet yourself. Listen to what your heart speaks true and not what it has been taught. When you do this, universal intelligence and inherent light flow through your mind, heart and spirit. Understanding and awareness will direct you to a peaceful relationship with yourself and everyone and everything around you. You start feeling the magical sparkles of the stars inside of you. Healing begins. Remembrance of the star wisdom shines within.
The Star shines with focus, sparkles with imagination, glistens with understanding and penetrates the heart, mind and spirit with love and light. The Star heals us so that we can shine its light of inspiration, hope and confidence onto our world. It allows us to be stars in how we think, feel, love and understand ourselves. Wish upon a star. Let your destiny unfold and let the magic begin. We are all stars.
Symbolism in The Star Image
The Star Goddess steps into the sacred spring of truth and healing. The spring will cleanse her of any fears that hold her back from her true self. She is nude – she has nothing to hide. She is a sacred vessel with the light of the divine shining within and without. She meditates on the spiral in the sacred spring and all the possibilities (represented by the stars in the spring) that are before her. As her foot descends into the water, her left hand rests on a rock ledge, representing her understanding of her material world. Her right hand feels the waters of life and spirit, expressing her understanding of the precious balance between the two that makes life a magical experience.
The silver waterfall on her left represents the unconscious/intuitive. It separates into five streams (our five human senses) that flow into the spring. The golden waterfall on her right represents the conscious (one’s choice to expand the self). Both waterfalls flow from the heavens into the sacred spring of collective consciousness, blending the two into a perfect balance and the development of the sixth sense, one’s intuitiveness. The spirals in the spring represent the ever-flowing cycles in one’s life. The spring is also the pool of honest self -reflection, a spring of contemplation and meditation.
The ascending butterflies represent the chakras, transforming and opening up to the divine light of God/Creator.
The seven stars circling around the star goddess’ head create a halo, also representing the seven chakras, but now fully developed and open to receive the light of the divine star above.
The large star mandala is the star of truth. One truth. The star has eight points representing as ‘above so below’. It represents the guiding light, The Star of Bethlehem and The Star of David. It is the divine light that inspires one to do great things.
The astrological aspect of this image is Aquarius – the water bearer, the visionary. The Hebrew letter associated with The Star is Tasaddi (fishhook) – natural Intelligence, dweller between two worlds.
The Star as a Lifetime Personality Symbol
As a Lifetime Personality Symbol, The Star represents one who has a strong sense of destiny or fate. You are a visionary and a collective thinker. You are confident and radiate charisma. You draw people and opportunities to you. The Star is often a symbol for fame and recognition. At different times in your life you may be recognized for accomplishments. You can be very ambitious and focused when you visualize and set goals for your dreams and inspirations. Self-confidence and trust in yourself are your allies. Usually your dreams and goals have the greater good in mind.
The Star Lifetime/Personality will need to take time to re-connect with your spiritual self, to regenerate. Taking time to quiet yourself and meditating is food for your inspiration and soul. The challenge of this lifetime path is to believe in yourself and your truth. Without that, you feel lost without focus, and your sense of destiny scattered like the millions of stars in the night sky.
You will be an inspiration for others when it come to self-esteem issues. You understand that arrogance and self-deprecation cannot exist in the presence of self-love, self-trust and self-respect.
The Star as a Yearly Growth Symbol
During The Star year you could be recognized for an accomplishment. It’s a year to increase self-trust, confidence and self-esteem. It is your year to shine and go for your dreams – to actualize your destiny. It is also a year that brings deep healing and self-love. If you don’t meditate, then begin. The Star year brings you opportunities to let your inner light shine out brightly into your world. It is your year to shine.
