17. The Star

The symbol of Hope. Prioritising your attention to giving-and-receiving nourishment, where it matters most, in your creative process.

Having deconstructed your old patterns and comfort zone in the Tower, the Star opens herself in a fierce vulnerability.

She does not shy away or down-play being her open self. She listens and feels into what her creativity needs – pouring in her focus, energy and sincere intentions.

Her tangible resources (the Earth) is nourished by her subconscious, intuition and emotions (the Water).
