The All Hallows Tarot by Robin Tisch-Hollister today offers us a card of hope and generosity - the Star.
I love her stripy tights and black boots, though I'm not sure being dipped in a pool will do them much good! Very far from the normal nude pouring water from two jugs, our short, black-haired lady wears a flowing white dress and holds a bright red bowl that seems to brim with water. A bright star shines behind her, a full moon sheds its light from above, and a raven flies towards her.
I get the sense that this woman has filled up a bowl of moon water, and is offering it to us. The full moon is a time of completion, of maximum energy. The raven is often a messenger, just as meditating at full moon can be most propitious for hearing clearly the voice of spirit or our guides. This card reminds me that Samhain is the start of the Pagan year, a time full of potential. Yes, winter is still ahead, but it is a time for gathering energy again, replenishing ourselves in quiet, before things kick off afresh in the spring.
Today we head back after our short Madrid trip. I'm looking forward to getting home, where I can rest and relax, and return to my regular routine which feels supportive and spiritually nourishing.
I am grateful for homecomings.
