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.

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.
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.
