Death is the universal conclusion for all living things; a great equalizer and balancing force within the universe, and yet it is also the beginning of new life. This card does not carry the pretense of literal death, rather it speaks of a psychological death of self as we grow, change and are ‘born anew’.
It is incredibly difficult to let go of deeply ingrained behaviors and beliefs, and oftentimes we must experience a psychological cycle of death and rebirth to become better equipped to walk a fulfilling life path. Death counsels that spiritual growth may bring pain, but each time we experience this pain we are born anew; stronger than before. When attempting to overcome a trial, we must confront this figurative death with resolve and pass through it with courage. Embrace inner change and allow yourself to transition into a stronger version of yourself.
You are also cautioned to be conscious of the fear of change, as it often leads to a stagnation that prevents the cycle of psychological death and rebirth.
The Star represents replenishment and faith in oneself, denoting a time of healing after a great emotional wound. Know that the cycles of the universe will always bring balance once again, and that The Star counsels you to recognize your inner strength and have faith in your capabilities. It is time to be courageous and open to feeling optimistic.
If you are laid low, The Star guides you to hold on to hope and recognize your inner strength. Your feelings of despair are valid, but remember that balance is always restored when we center ourselves, and new paths are always just beyond the fog.
The Moon is a mirror reflecting your subconscious, showing you the image of your inner anxieties and doubts, as well as the reality surrounding you. This is a time to look at both reflections and compare them, defining what is real and what is a discomfort of your own making.
Do not allow yourself to be deceived by the reflection, The Moon cautions. Identify your worries and concerns, drag them to the surface, and hold them up to the reality around you. Temper your worry with the understanding that your intuition is a powerful tool that provides a path to clarity, and like the light of a full moon, it will guide you down that path.
This card can also represent the existence of a great illusion in your life - one which you may not yet be aware of. Trust your intuition and proceed with confidence in your sense of self and boundaries.
