17-The Star – Reversed Mage Deck

Your Chosen Card – The Lord Reversed Mage 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)

Tarot Books

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.

Protect him in all his two hundred and forty-eight organs against imprisonment and against the two-edged sword. Help him, deliver him, save him, rescue him from evil men and evil speech, and from a harsh litigant, whether he be Jew or Gentile. Humble and bring low those who rise against him to do him evil by deed or by speech, by counsel or by thought. May all who seek his harm be overthrown, destroyed, humbled, afflicted, broken so that not a limb remains whole; may those who wish him ill be put to shame. Save him, deliver him from all sorcery, from all reverses, from poverty, from wicked men, from sudden death, from the evil effects of passion, from every sort of tribulation and disease. Grant him grace, and love, and mercy before the throne of God, and before all being who behold him. Let the fear of him rest on all creatures, as the mighty lion dreads the mightier mafgi’a. I conjure [name], son of [mother’s name], in the name of Uriron and Adriron [sic]. Praised be the Lord forever. Amen and Amen.
