Tarot card of the month, September: The Star

 Element:  Air      Zodiac: Aquarius   Planet: Neptune

The Star is the 17th card in the major  arcana. You will notice the 8 stars are all eight pointed stars also. The card stands for serenity, Inspiration, generosity and hope. But be ware this card has a flip side that challenges our perception of reality. Be careful not to be tricked or fooled by what you think is happening. This could turn out to be a mind game. All of the tarot cards have positive and negative meanings.

Notice the water in the forefront, representing the mind and intuition. The lady is holding two jugs or pitchers and pouring out the water equally, creating balance and harmony. There are five little streams of water on the ground as she pours the water on to the ground representing the five physical world senses.

The left hand side of her body represents the female and psychic side of her (subconscious), the right represents male energy (conscious).

Interesting that is is for the month of September which is ruled by the zodiac sign Libra and the planet Venus.  Which are symbols of love, harmony and balance.

The naked lady represents spiritual purity and innocence, she has one foot on land and one foot in the water, indicating she has a foot in both worlds. She is loving and benevolent in her care and duties to others but she is vulnerable.

Notice the tree in the background has three branches and an Ibis on top ( personally I do not like the symbol of the Ibis, I feel it has negative vibrations and I do not like the Egyptian occult symbology as I find it very dark). The tree alludes to the tree of life. The mountain in the background is obstacles to be overcome.
Notice the bright blue sky representing joy and knowing there are better days ahead.

Now for the number eight, which is similar to the lemniscate or infinity symbol which is also similar to the DNA chain.,representing%20the%20concept%20of%20infinity.

The number eight is about balance and harmony above all else in its meaning. It is creative as well as destructive in its force. Number eight can bring abundance, but always remember its flip side.

Notice the number eight is shown by the card number (adding the 1 and the seven) Then st stars with eight points in each. Adding all that up it comes to 72 which breaks down to the number 9 in numerology.

Nine is the male energy and the number for communication also. Nine can be aggressive or compassionate and cares for others, so it is pretty good to see the positive energy of the number nine  tying in with  the energy of this card, and for the month of September.

What this card tells me is for the month of September keep your hopes up if you are looking for change in your life. Keep thinking positive, nothing lasts for ever if you are going through a downturn. Know it is at an end soon. Keep your expectations realistic.

You may experience some act of generosity or may be the one being generous to others in need.
Follow your intuition with important matters this month and remember spring time has nice new energy after the deep winter slumber.   New life means new hope so enjoy this month on  personal level and stay hopeful.
