Today’s card is The Star.
This is the second time I’ve pulled this card recently. The first was in a spread with this card in the position representing key to the matter. It’s become one of my recent favourite cards.
There’s a lot of mystery to this card. The image is redolent with symbolism, which I have read a little about, but won’t go into here. The Star tells me that the universe has got my back. It’s a symbol of hope after a period of struggle. It’s a light in the darkness.
The message of the Star is one of faith rather than a call to action. The idea of trusting that peace and happiness will come to me, rather than me actively manifesting a positive future, requires a mental leap of faith which doesn’t come easily to me. But despite this, I feel comfort in receiving the Star’s message. It’s like getting a hug from a friend, and a reassurance that it’s all going to be all right. Even when it’s not going to be all right, it feels good to be reassured. And maybe it’s exactly what I need to hear.
