It would be remiss of me to not mention that one of the reasons the Starman Tarot is my current favourite deck, is Davide’s take on the 4 of Pentacles. He chose to take more of a Thoth Tarot view of this card as one of personal power rather than associate it with miserliness, as depicted in the Smith Waite Tarot.
The astrological correspondence for the 4 of Pentacles is Sun in Capricorn and this card corresponds with my birthday decan, third decan of Capricorn. I need the energy of this card in my life. I came into the world this time around as a Capricorn Sun sign to cultivate these qualities and not the quality of isolation and miserliness I associate with the RWS Tarot 4 of Pentacles. Having a constant reminder of only the negative potential of this card is detrimental to my mental health as well as my soul’s growth.
I do struggle with a tendency to isolate myself so I need the push that comes with the guidance for the 4 of Pentacles in the Starman Tarot guide book:
Huge confidence and ability to leverage a noble cause. Reinvent yourself. Let go of false identities.
I need to stop playing it safe, playing it small…
The visual representation of the energy of this card reminds me of the famous Marianne Williamson quote often attributed to Nelson Mandela:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
One of my favourite things about the Starman Tarot is that I can use the images for energy healing by absorbing the colours and symbols of each card through my eyes. It actually works better when I unblock myself from overthinking and just let the art itself speak… These cards communicate very directly with all the energy layers of my being. Art can be very healing indeed, as David Bowie also showed us through his music.
