Happy Spring Equinox!

posted in: Card Image, Event, News | 0

With the ingress of the Sun into Aries, spring begins. We wish all our readers and supporters adventurous and beneficial new beginnings.

The card for this day is our Emperor:

 

The Emperor inspires our new beginnings with his fiery nature and his directed will, inclding the will to take responsibility for our domain. If you start to consider your domain you will be surprised how much belongs to it.

Our card design reminds us of Asian rulers, many of whom consider themselvs descendants from dragons. Our dragon carries an ornate building on its head. Rulers have often being associated with building and buildings have been erected by rulers to in the memories of people. In Egypt, the very title Pharao derives from the word “Great House” – and this related to building on the mundane level as much as on the spiritual.

Free Reading on the Chinese New Year with every order of the Starlight Dragon deck this weekend!

We greet all out friends and visitors on the day of starting a New Year in the Chinese Calendar. The Year of the Fiery Rooster. It is a sign of awakening and success, but that has to be achievd through dedication to hard work and diligence.

We looked for a card in the Starlight Dragon Tarot to fit this energy – and we see it in the Page of Wands or Earth of Fire: a new, young ambitious fire-dragon, but being of earth (as a page in the Golden Dawn elemental correspondence) there is also the notion of effort, hard work.

Enjoy your day! Also enjoy your gift from us on this weeekend (ending Monday morning 8 o’clock Central European time!): All orders of our deck come with a 5 card Year Ahead snapshot free of charge.

Our Cards at the New Moon in Aquarius

posted in: Card Description, Card Image, News | 0

Today we celebrate the first New Moon of the Year – in Aquarius with the Sun also in Aquarius.
So, in our Starlight Dragon deck, the Dragon of Hidden Knowledge (II) brings us her message of Draco, the Star (XVII):
“In my dark depth of mysteries the lights from the sky serpent are mirrored, from high up in the North and never setting. Its message is hope, the energy and confidence of never giving up. And this is a signpost for this year, just begun and so far still very much an after effect of the old year: with the renewal of the lights – the moon waxing and days getting longer, the first whiff of spring in the air – our powers to create, to work magick, to assert the light in our lives are reenforced. Let’s take up this message and live it in all its fullness.”

The Star (XVII) relates to Aquarius

posted in: Card Description, Card Image, News | 0

As the Sun has moved into Aquarius this week, we share our Star card and some of the text from my forthcoming book “Traveling with the Starlight Dragons”. Even though we chose Draco for our card, we maintain also the association with Aquarius and its meaning of renewal,new visions and hope. We see this also in Draco – on an even higher plane:

XVII The Star – The constellation Draco.

The huge sky serpent beckons us to raise and widen our eyes to take in its vastness in our Northern sky. Slowly, the enormous dragon head with its huge eyes locks into our mind and we begin to rise, higher and higher, until we dance with the wide writhing band of this dragon made up of stars and starlight. We experience on some inexplicable level the circumpolar movement of these never-setting stars and we understand why they stand for the immortality of spirit in many cultures. In places as far flung in place, culture and time as the Angkor temples in Cambodia and stone placements in Overlook Mountain in Woodstock/New York Draco has been copied in celebration down here on our earth. One of the socalled air shafts of the Great Pyramid at Gizeh (among others) has been aligned to the star Thuban (Alpha Draconis) when it was the Pole Star.

Archetypal Dragons: The Lovers (VI)

posted in: Card Description, Card Image, News | 0

lovers_envOn this Sunday we are concluding our first series “Archetypal Dragons ” with the Dragons of Polarity, the Lovers. Our image is inspired by patterns of Persian classical carpets and mosaics.

We are reminded that the decision-making often indicated by this card is often a complex process of discerning what really is play and how we have to weigh two sides of the coin or ‘our two minds’ symbolised by zodiac sign Gemini to which card refers.

The famous twins Castor and Pollux from ancient Greek and Roman myth, immortalised as the stars Alpha and Beta Geminorum in the constellation Gemini show the dual character of the Twins and hence the Lovers: they are inseparable as twins and polarised with Pollux being immortal and Castor being mortal. At Castor’s death, Zeus allowed them at Pollux’s request to live together alternating between Olympus, the abode of the immortal gods and Hades, the underworld of the dead. One of their symbols was a pair of snakes.

Archetypal Dragons: The Chariot (VII)

posted in: Card Description, Card Image, News | 0

chariot_envAs the penultimate card in this week’s series, we send you the Dragon of Decisive Momentum – The Chariot.

Our image is inspired by a “snake-witch” rune stone from Gotland in the Viking era.

We also had in mind the story of Hyrrokkin, a giantess called in by the Aesir for her immense physical power needed to put the dead Baldr in his ship out to sea. Hyrrokkin had two snakes for reins while riding on an enormous wolf.
