I thought that I would use a set that hasn’t seen the light of day for a couple of years!! I went on a buying spree a few years ago, and collected different things, and then stuck to my tarot – now I’m rediscovering some of those of those great purchases…glad I’m not biased anymore! lol
This is a fascinating set of cards and book, based on the work of Linda Goodman who was famous for her astrology books, but was also very knowledgeable on numerology and other metaphysical subjects. They’re aptly named Linda Goodman’s Star cards.
I drew 2 cards, (shown above):
- 4 Uranus – This card reminds me immediately of the Tower card in the Tarot, which says to me something unexpected, out of the blue..the pillar is crumbling and toppling, a pillar that has been there for a long time; built on the checkerboard floor, I tried to remember the significance and couldn’t! so I looked it up. The checkerboard represents the alternating pull of all fundamental dualities, the neg and the positive, the light and the dark….it’s also the mandala of Shiva, the transformer. And here, you see what had once been a solid form, is being toppled down, and transformed.
Reading from the accompanied book it says, “Uranus, the father of Saturn, is said to be the planet of disruptions and change of the old order. He revolutionizes; he breaks down old belief systems and establishes new structures.After the almighty shake-up, there is an awakening..”
- 1 Sun – The Sun card is dominated by a big golden lion. This brings a couple of things to mind; The Lion King…the one who is in command of his domain….and of course, Leo. In Egypt they worshiped the Sun, and the Sphinx (head of a lion) faced East to the Sunrise…it was calculated that the Sun rose in the Leo constellation something like 10,500 years ago and that this points to when the Sphinx might really have been built! The Age of Leo..
“Spotlight is on you. The magnificent golden rays of the Sun are all powerful and your creative energies abound. You hold the ability to achieve your ambitions. Dreams come true. Expect a miracle!”
Wow! so old ways of Life are falling away, and literally a new age is dawning in my experience. Very very promising! The other thing that hit me, strictly intuitively, is the crumbling away, or like the Tower, shocking news, coming from/or about a Leo in my life… that would be my ex, again…
So this may have 2 very different meanings. I will definitely take the first!.
