DECK: Mystical Cats Tarot
CARD: Stars (The Star)
In Mystical Cats Tarot, the Stars card is the same as The Star in any of the Waite Tarot decks. In this deck, the imagery of the Stars card depicts a grey cat in a tree looking up at the constellation of the Great Lion. It’s the same artwork depicted on the front of the Mystical Cats Tarot box. The Major Arcana are known as the Cat Mysteries in the Mystical Cats Tarot deck, hence why some of the names of the cards are different and their meanings somewhat altered.
Quoting the “Tales of the Mystical Cats:”
“When Bast gave birth to the universe, she blessed each of her creations with a connection to cosmic consciousness. Cats are aware of this from kittenhood. We know we are part of something bigger than ourselves. Like stars, we are bright, perfect, unique, and are linked to a common origin as we live out our individual destinies. This is the great Mystery of faith: to trust that there is meaning and intention in the pattern of our lives. When we gaze upward and behold the Great Lion, we know that we too are made of stardust.” - Lunaea Weatherstone, “Tales of the Mystical Cats from Mystical Cats Tarot
What advice does this card give you?
The advice that the Stars card gives you is that you should never doubt your uniqueness. You are a precious being and a vital part of the unfolding of the Universe. Keep faith that things are happening as they are meant to, even if things are unclear right now. You must trust the Universe that the pattern of your life will soon become much clearer to you. You can take action knowing that your path is being guided by the Divine Will.
Indeed, this is a great card to see all the time! It’s very much the same as pulling The Star from a traditional Waite deck. The Star often signifies positive things such as inspiration and Hope, serenity and renewal, and spirituality. Also, just like the Stars card in Mystical Cats Tarot, the Star is associated with the number 17. From a numerology perspective, 17 equals 8: (1+7=8). The number Eight means Strength. This is the quality most necessary when learning to love and accept yourself in spite of your faults.
While the traditional Waite Tarot meaning and the Mystical Cats Tarot meanings are somewhat different, they certainly go together. Whichever meaning you choose to believe in by your own intuition, drawing this card is a good omen. Know that the Universe has your back as long as you learn to accept and love yourself and have faith in your own abilities and talents.
