Recently we started focussing on the Hierophant and what he has to say to us. We chose him has a emblem for our TarotCon. This coincides not just with the ‘season’ of the zodiacal sign of Taurus, to which the Hierophant corresponds, but also with the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for a thrilling new tarot-project – the Tarot Wayfarer (starting May 1st). On the “journey towards the journey’ up till now and on to May 1st, various hints have been dropped on “the Rose Key – Mystery” and our Hierophant card is part of it! See Dragons in the Starlight for intriguing hints.
Meanwhile, Nora and I revealed some of the mysteries encapsulated in our card in a video in or series Tarot Talks with the Starlight Dragons.
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.”

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.
