“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.”Carl Sagan
The Starman Tarot 7 of Cups is one of the most traditional looking images of the deck. Instead of the central character having their back turned to the viewer as per the traditional RWS Tarot image, the cosmic being in the Starman Tarot faces us but his eyes are veiled behind a grid of light. What we see all around him is the possibilities and imaginings of his inner vision. He has yet to make his choice about what to manifest.
I think that one of the main problems in the world today is that most of us have been discouraged from using our imagination in meaningful ways. Instead we are giving automated templates on how to lead our lives, going from one stage of life to the next, hoping things will improve…
Things will get better when I leave school and start working. Things will improve when I ditch this job and land my dream job. I will be happy when I find ‘The One.’ Things will get better when I find a way of leaving this marriage. I will have more freedom when the kids finally leave the nest. I will enjoy my life completely when we move house…
The list goes on and on. How about actually living fully in the now instead? How come some people seem to manage to do this and to actually enjoy living? How come some people are exciting and inspiring to be around? You know what I mean! No matter what their age, they have this gleam in their eye and a presence that makes you feel as if everything is going to be alright.
It’s because they are living from within, allowing their own soul to be their guide. They know that they joy is in the journey itself, not in some distant future goal. It’s because they allow themselves to get fired up with excitement about their purpose… and they know this purpose because they trust their inner guidance.
This could be you, right here and now. All you have to do is take one small step in the direction you are being guided to go and trust the process…
