About 10 years ago I had a dream about stars that I briefly referred to in my NINE of WANDS post.
I dreamed I was looking out my bedroom window at billions of stars. I was in awe and overwhelmed at how many there were, and in some ways how insignificant they made me feel, until I noticed one particular star that seemed to be looking directly at me. It didn't have eyes, because you know, stars don't have eyes, but I knew it saw me. As I continued to watch this star, I had an understanding that this star was seeing me as as star. Maybe it was someone like me looking up at the stars and seeing me looking down at hir. I don't know what other form it might be taking elsewhere, but I had no doubt that it saw me. At that moment, I remembered a teaching of don Miguel's that used to baffle me: We are light perceiving light. Then a refrain from a Nelly Furtado song started playing "Stay true to myself, myself, myself, myself..."
I still cannot grasp an exact meaning or explanation of what "we are light perceiving light" means. I don't know that it necessarily needs to be explained. It is a feeling state and I felt it in the dream I had.
The STAR is about hope, healing, renewal, and inspiration. I look at this card and remember my dream of being light perceiving light, I think of how the figure in the card feels and the energy s/he brings. Cleansing water, a warm night under the stars, serenity, and strength in vulnerability. There is something in this card that is about sharing our gifts freely and openly, and staying true to ourselves. I do know that when this card is pulled in the present or future position, good things are here or they are coming. It's telling us that we are on the right path, even if it's feeling challenging at the moment. I'm pretty sure it's also telling us that we are not alone.
