The path of the Star represents releasing the baleful ghosts and restrictions of the past. With hope and faith, and believing that you are going to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The binding restrictions of the past come to an end...
The Story Of Pandora’s Box
In Greek mythology, Zeus (the god of the sky, weather patterns, and unexpected thunder bolts) ordered Hephaestus (the god of craftsmanship) to create Pandora (the first woman on Earth). Pandora was given a beautiful container and was told not to open it, but her curiosity impelled her to open the container and go against Zeus. When she opened the container a swarm of dragonflies and insects escaped the container and filled the sky, which by legend would bring sickness and old age, but there was one blessing that lay at the bottom of the container, Elpis (the spirit of hope) which did not fly away!
My Interpretation Of The Star:
Have you ever opened Pandora’s Box and ended up in a mess or stepped into quick sand because you did not listen to someone or think something through? Did you also experience the consequences of getting hurt and found yourself stuck in the baleful ghosts of the past?
Did you know the Star Tarot Card represents the “Spirit of Hope?” Is it time to release the baleful ghosts of the past? Crying is not a bad emotional release, but rather a good emotional release because when you cry, you release the old, blocked and outdated emotions that needed to go! When you release these emotions, you will finally move forward, leaving the ghosts behind! Your crisis, however difficult, will be overcome and you will rise into a new opportunity for growth as you shed what restrained you. Your faith in the future will inspire you to emerge from the darkness!
The “Spirit of Hope” brings hope, faith and protection enabling you to achieve a dream because you will start to see the light at the end of the tunnel and have a renewed confidence with your future! After a turbulent storm, there is usually a rainbow, a symbol of good news, hope, redemption, luck, a new path, and the ending of gloom. You need to remember that something good usually happens after something bad!
The Star Tarot Card is not a card that is going to give you solutions or final answers, but when this card appears in a reading, know that you are on the right track! Your goals confront you now, and you have a blessing to realize them. I have always looked at the “Spirit of Hope” as a healing star and a source of inspiration, finding something about its twinkling light that draws you out of the past and into the future!
The Reverse Meaning Of The Star:
The reverse meaning of the Star is an unfavorable situation. Obstacles prevent the achievement of a dream. The inability to accept a helping hand may lead to failure because of your strong determination to be rebellious and be your own taskmaster. You are stuck in the pain of the past and clinging to its baleful ghosts.
