Hope. Healing. Inspiration. This is a most welcome and beautiful card of the Major Arcana associated with the astrological sign Aquarius, which is actually of the suit of air.
What a great card for a Monday. This is something special. We see a nude woman kneeling by a stream under a starry sky. There are 7 smaller stars surrounding 1 huge, bright 7 pointed star directly over her head. ‘The Seven Sisters’ is a name for the Plaedes star cluster, visible from Earth with the naked eye:
“The cluster is dominated by hot blue and luminous stars that have formed within the last 100 million years” says the dictionary, and sure enough, as many times as I’ve looked at this card (XVII = 17 = 7 + 1 = 8 = infinity) and at the 8 stars in the sky above her head, 7 of them have a bluish tint I’d never really noticed before (Morgan-Greer deck).
The woman has one foot in a stream and the other on land, and is calmly taking fresh, clean, healing water from the stream with one pitcher and pouring out old stagnant water onto the green grass from another as if she’s listening to the star above her, divinely guided.
If you’re ‘getting over’ something, you’re feeling hopeful about a fresh new start, or you finally feel ‘healed’. This new beginning is not only promising, but blessed.
Especially if you’re in music, film or entertainment, and of course, the Internet. Uranus, the planet of unexpected innovation is also saying hello, so this could even be the next genius electronic invention or app (that star is communicating with her wirelessly). But the thing about a Star is that it’s shining on everyone and everyone benefits – whether from a new invention or a work of art or by your best self. When we see someone truly inspired, we are inspired as well.
The stars are aligned, hope someone’s listening.
