Today I drew a card for a friend in need.
Someone dear to my heart who felt she had lost her way. The card was The Star. (I should point out that this was not one of those awesome moments where the cards deliver what you need the most, but that I chose it myself.)
The Star, from the Anna K Tarot by Anna Klaffinger
The Star is the card of hope – of a light at the end of the tunnel, or shining in the darkness. It can be a guide, an inner light or a reminder of our own courage. It is a kind message from a friend that everything will be okay.
The Star also reminds us that we are part of a cycle of death and rebirth, or constant renewal of our selves. Letting parts of ourselves go – even parts such as fears and insecurities if we have been holding them for a long time – can be scary. Making changes in our lives can throw us into doubt as to who we are, what we are. The Star is a reminder that we are wise and brave and on the right track.

It’s such a simple, loving card that I’m struggling to find much to write about it! It seems to speak for itself. I hope it speaks to my friend when I send her this little light and lets her know that she is not alone, and she is amazing, and she is growing, and she is gonna be just fine.
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
