Happy New Year again! Kicking off the very first Tarot pull of the new year and it's a damn optimistic AF one too, I'm here for all of that!
The Starman - No Reverse for this one but it was upright anyway!
The Starman is a magical card not known to traditional Tarot cards, but it does go hand in hand with another not well-known card in traditional decks, The Alchemist. It calls us all to discover our full creative potential. Something in your life needs to be re-invented or re-thought and it will reveal something extraordinary in the process. We all have a powerful energy inside of us, we all have the ability to tap into it. "With great power, comes great responsibility" though. In one hand, The Starman is holding a weapon, in the other a key, the great balance of do you force your way through life with the weapon or do you simply open the GD door with the key? The face in the background reminds me to always ask for help and guidance from your God, ancestors, whatever higher power, if any, you believe in. Power does not come from us but THROUGH us, when wielded with integrity we can all create something magical out of nothing.
Here's an excerpt from the guide that came with my cards, I really loved the verbiage, it inspired me, and I hope it inspires you too...
"We too can place the personality and the various jaded facets of ourselves into the flame of the creative fire to be reconfigured in ever more liberating expressive and complex ways. We must throw ourselves into the white-hot flames and despite this heat and sheer intensity know that we can never disappear. To boldly confront the fear of destroying that which we cherish, something complete and comfortable, with great intrinsic value and yet be courageous and break it down. To trust the Starman as he propels us towards the possibility of discovering what we didn't know that we didn't know - revealing the raw components of life, with all of the thoughts, frailties, passions and anxieties which can now be transformed and recombined into something powerful, impactful - extraordinary"
No time like the present, friends! Tap into your most creative self and see what happens. I know firsthand, a creative outlet or two can save your mind with the wild world we live in today.
Stay safe out there and be a good human to one another for GAWD sake!
