17-The Lord – Reversed Salem Deck

Your Chosen Card – The Lord Reversed Salem Deck

When reversed, the Star card suggests that you are not feeling hopeful about a positive outcome. You may be suffering a crisis of faith or feeling beset by doubts that things will not work out in the end. Now is a time to assess your situation realistically and banish any false hopes or expectations based on illusion. Are you able to see the glass only as being half empty? Are you unable to recognize the guiding trail beneath your feet? Keep in mind the moral of Aesop’s fable: the gods help those who help themselves.

Keywords Reversed: Loss of hope, pessimism, expectations not met, neglected opportunities, lack of trust in the future, refusal to accept helpful guidance.

Key XVII: The Star
Myths/Archetypes: The Star of Bethlehem. The Fairy Godmother. The Egyptian sky goddess Nuit (aka Nut, Neuth, Newet). Aquarius, the Water Bearer.
Dates of Aquarius: 20 January–17 February (tropical); 13 February–13 March (sidereal)
Astrology: Aquarius, the Water Bearer (an Air sign ruled by Saturn and Uranus)

Element: Air

When The Lord is reversed you can pretty much take it that life is going well but that’s when life takes us by surprise.  If The Lord is unclear it may help to choose a card from the Major Arcana to provide more insight into what it is The Lord is trying to tell you.  If you had a particular issue in  mind, or want to seek clarification on something else, you can also choose again to get more guidance.

Complete Book of Tarot: Most tarot enthusiasts have more than one deck and use particular decks for specific purposes. For example, you might use one deck to read for yourself, another for meditation, and yet another for creative inspiration when starting a project. One way to get acquainted with a new set of cards is to ‘interview’ the deck using a tarot spread. The theme and variations layout is useful for this purpose.

Tarot for Beginners: Reversed, this card can point to hidden agendas on the part of others, or even hidden from yourself in your own subconscious. Either way, be careful about whom you entrust with emotional truths at this time.

Development for Beginners: However, before we get started with any offensive energy techniques, it needs to be said that the reason more energy manipulation techniques focus on protection rather than offense is because of the moral implications that offensive energy use can have. It is sometimes the case that people will abuse energy offenses and use them to cause harm. Of course it goes without saying that you should not be one of those people.
