Nefertari Tarot: The Star (17)

leave a comment »

For an introduction to the 78 days of tarot project, please click here.

Visual Card Description:  A nude woman kneels in water and holds two feathers* (possibly those of Ma’at) in her upraised hands.  She wears a headdress of the sun disk flanked by uraei, which symbolizes the Eye of Ra.*  She is surrounded by stars.

Free Association:  Cycles, Recalling the Past, Divine Guidance/Protection, Balance

Rider-Waite/Traditional Associations:  When the Star appears, you are likely to find yourself feeling rather inspired. You will be feeling more hopeful about the future, and more confident that your needs – whether these are emotional or financial needs or both – will be met. This is also a very spiritual card. You may find yourself for a time feeling at one with all of creation. Savor it.

This card is a definite good omen. You are probably already inclined to be thinking positively; this is a time to do so specifically. What are the changes that you would like to make or see in your life? Make a list. You can accomplish nearly anything that you set out to do now. Think big.

Meaning from the lwb (little white book that came with this deck):  Faith, hope, inspired grace, good and favourable omen.  Happy conclusion, good results.  Brilliant ideas, effective advice, uninterested help.

My interpretation:   The hour is right, the akhu and the netjeru have blessed you, and Ma’at is on your side.  This card is a symbol of blessing and hope.  The possibilities within the Nun are at your disposal.
