Sasha Graham’s Tarot Card a Day Blog – The Star

The Star

New Hope. Clarity. Inspiration.

Yesterday, I attended a matinee of The Little Mermaid on Broadway with my daughter. When I pulled The Star card, it reminded me of stars appearing on Broadway. Now, I am certain The Star tarot card was not created with stars of stage, film or music in mind. Yet, while gazing at the Star card, I thought of the role certain stars play in my life. The cathartic experience watching an inspired film, play or concert can give you.

I boogie out of a Madonna show with renewed energy and determination for life. I wander out of Nicole Kidman films imagining I’m as beautiful and delicate as she is. Watching Oprah reminds me I can make a difference in the lives of those around me. Reading Jeanette Winterson’s prose refreshes me with of the splendor and beauty of her language. Gazing at Lucian Freud in MOMA inspires me with the haunting stroke of his paintbrush.

The Star Tarot card reminds you that art is not a luxury. Art rejuvenates. Art inspires. Art is essential.

What stars in your pantheon offer you a fresh start, fresh hope? Are they actors, authors, musicians, painters? Think of the ways you act as the Star card for people in your life. I bet you inspire lots of people in ways you don’t even know about. Your life is a work of art too!

    Hi Sasha, I am still waiting for the cook book…hint hint…love your site and your inspiring words from the star card on art inspiring and being essential. I believe we can be creative in all that we do…it’s just the little things that can add up to a symphany of songs in nature, this morning I stepped outside to drink my coffee…(I do love the magician drink) and listened to all the birds chiming in their songs and just pausing to say thank you…Nature inspires me and I hope to share with others…have a great day…smiles Brenda(fairy book)
