Complete Book of Tarot: 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.

Reversed Cards: The Nine of Swords in the mirror aspect reminds me of the legendary dark mirror artifact that shows people their greatest fear. Maybe it should be said that it shows them the truth about the human experience, that we are nothing but rotting flesh that eventually will decompose, leaving nothing but bare bones. This in-your-face reminder of impermanence is enough to tailspin most people into a sudden victim state. But the truth is accepting one’s temporary nature is the only way to release the grip of suffering and find true inner peace. You could say that receiving the Nine of Swords in the mirror aspect is the next step along your path of enlightenment.

Some tarot readers use the range of dates assigned to each card as an aid to judging the timing of events in a spread. (In this table: W = Wands, P = Pentacles, S = Swords, and C = Cups.)
