Tarot has been used as a tool for divination for decades. The original deck was created by the founders of the alchemist brotherhood, the Secret Order of the Golden Dawn, and has never been released to the public. Three members of the Golden Dawn were instructed to create their own interpretations of the original tarot deck. Those decks are the Rider-Waite by Arthur Edward Waite, the Thoth by Aleister Crowley, and the B.O.T.A. (Builders of the Adytum) by Paul Foster Case. All other tarot decks stem from these three utilizing their own symbology and interpretation of each card. Regardless of the esoteric meanings and depictions, every deck has a Major Arcana and Minor Arcana.
The Major Arcana
The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards. They are the foundation of the journey we all must go through to reach spiritual awareness. The fool is the first card of the Major Arcana and is often unnumbered. Each card represents major life changes, integral people in our life, or ingrained aspects of our higher selves. The main phases of life consisting of both struggles and successes are captured in these cards. Symbols in each card give more insight and meaning to the general picture. Whether we feel the Tower of our lives crumbling beneath our feet, or the warmth of the Sun shining down on us encouraging each step; we are being guided with love and light.
The Star is the 27th card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot. This card represents our hopes, dreams, and desires that we wish to come to fruition. The Star brings us inspiration and renewal as we begin to realize we have been achieving what we have longing for over time. During this realization we become filled with confidence and comfort in knowing we are capable of ensuring our needs are met. This surge of empowerment will be felt within as our light begins to shine with an effervescently blinding beauty. Other people will feel this warmth and begin looking within to find their own. Since we are all allowing our inner flame to billow and overtake the darkness of our hearts, there is a powerful awakening occurring on a collective conscious level. We are all finding paths in our lives that were not outlined as clearly before. These paths are extending from our souls, and our hearts beat to the rhythm of every step we take. We are balanced in harmony connected to our higher, true self which is directly linked to the source. As we open our eyes we are being flooded with an abundance of love, light, and warmth. With this comes compassion, empathy, softness, and a more complacent way of being creating serenity in every moment. The Star is propelling us forward to our souls purpose as we begin residing in our true bodies – our souls.
