Like that of the Magi over Bethlehem, the great Star is the portent of a new beginning. The change will take time to manifest, but this most optimistic card signals the return of hope after a period of trial and tribulation. The dragon pouring Water of Life into the lake and onto the land is Truth, whose blinding clarity lights the path from trouble to peace.
Like the return of spring after winter, the Star signals rebirth in any or all aspects of life, and the relaxing of restraints. After an illness, The Star card indicates the return of health. After a period of frustration in relationships or work, it promises the return of joy and blossoming of new partnerships. This is a good time to begin any new venture, and also to travel.
The reversed Ace warns of the danger of getting too attached to new beginnings that haven't been thought through properly, of being unrealistic and not fully committed to your undertakings. There is a slim chance of success here, but only if you work at it.
Modest success is indicated. Your idea has worked but few recognize its full value, so you are left with having to content yourself with the knowledge that you have done a good job that might be appreciated one day. Family problems are likely when the Ten is reversed.
Success and recognition are yours for the taking. Therefore, this is a good time for beginning new long-term enterprises, especially in the fields of arts and crafts, although it may be some time before the financial rewards come to you. Meanwhile, simply enjoy exercising your talents and have faith that others will equally enjoy what you do.
Financial strain, or a slight gain, comes with unwelcome strings attached. There is a real danger of money worries causing a major relationship to degenerate, but the real problem is your own attitude, not the lack of money itself.
You are likely to be tested to the very limits of your patience. Be flexible and patient - you have the resources to cope and eventually turn the situation to your advantage. Beware of rash commitments, and safeguard your health.
