Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
I remember reciting this nursery rhyme as a child, knowing full well if my intention was clear, my dreams would come true. After all, Walt Disney was a great man! As adults, whenever we gaze up at the stars, we become childlike and fantasize about our hopes and dreams. Our minds drift down memory lane. Those twinkling stars pierce our hearts with compassion, bringing a sense of security and hope in the most dire circumstances.
In a moment of deep contemplation, The Star card in Tarot appeared to me. All the dots started connecting immediately, and a new understanding was revealed….
Standing under the stars we feel hope which brings a sense of empowerment. This feeling may last for a few minutes, while other times it fuels our inner fire and changes the landscape of our lives forever. From a spiritual perspective we view The Star as our aspirations, the things we hope and dream of. A place where our imaginations can run wild. In Western Esoteric Study, The Star is referred to as “Tzaddi” a Hebrew word for fish hook. Many times, I studied that fish hook wondering which dream I was trying to catch. Until the realization came.. I am not the fisherman, I am the fish.
Our hopes and dreams can be reality. The next time we stand beneath the stars, quiet the mind, embrace silence and try to hear what the stars are saying.
