Thoth Deck Tarot: Key 17-THE STAR

The Star refers to the zodiacal sign Aquarius, the Water Bearer. The picture represents the Egyptian Goddess Nuit, the Lady of the Stars. Nuit is rarely shown in colors other than Black or Dark indigo, because She represents 'Before the veil of Light was created".....in other words, She is the Dark Womb, the Dark Matter. The fact that the Ancient Gnostic knew there was a Dark Force that birthed the Stars should peek the interest of any quantum physicist who has discovered that the "Quanta"(sub atomic particles) appear to have intelligence.
The figure is shown as a human figure, to verify the fact that She is depicted as a manifestation (Dark Energy) rather than a just a mythological concept. She is shown as bearing two cups, one golden cup held high above her head from which she pours the ethereal water upon it (in ritual this is symbolized by a mixture of milk, oil and blood.).  The Other Silver, from which She pours the Amitra, the immortal liquor of her life, pouring it into the Great Sea of Binah ( 3rd Sephiroth called "Understanding") that is  illustrated as conjunct to a shore of fertile earth.
,
[ Amitra of the Indian philosophers,  the Nepenthe and Ambrosia of the Greeks, the Alchahest and Universal Medicine of the Alchemists, The Nectar which is the Mother of  the Blood of the Grail is made.]
 
You may note that the cups represent the shape of breasts, this is because the Ancients believed that Stars were formed from the "milk of her breasts" an it is written: " The milk of the Stars from her paps; yeah, the milk of the stars from her paps". The Goddess Nuit has also been called, "Nothingness with Twinkles....".
What is illustrated on the Thoth Deck Star card, is the universe in its ultimate elements. The Celestial globe is behind the Goddess figure showing a prominent 7 pointed star that represents Venus, declaring the principle characteristic of Her nature to be love.
The manifestation of Nuit on a lower plane is Binah the Great Mother - The Sea of Life, The fertile Earth, nurtured by the Ocean of Binah, shown as supporting Roses in the right hand corner of the picture but between the Sea and the Land is the Abyss, which is hidden by the clouds, that whirl as her hair.
 [The Lady of the Rose, the Rose-Mari, is another aspect of the Fertile Goddess and during the Matriarchal age, there were Priestesses of the Blood Rose who were in direct representation of the Great Fertile Mother and stood for the Wellness of the people. This goes all the way back to Lemuria and/or the Land of Mu, that has been illustrated on ancient Chinese maps. Investigation is required here, ]
The Left hand upper corner of the Star card, shows the Star of Babalon which represents yet another manifestation of Nuit, that of the Scarlet Woman (Blood Rose) the Lady shown in Key 11, Lust, as riding the Lion-Serpent. Form her star issues the curved light of Spiritual/Spiral rays (Spiral and Spiritual are both from the Greek word: Spiro. which means {Breath".}. She is the Dark matter, and Heaven itself is no more than a veil before the face of the immortal Goddess.  Interesting to note here, is that every form of energy depicted here, is spiral (Spiritual). This is known as a "Spiral Universe"...we live in a Spiral Galaxy which we think we discovered just recently. Yet Zoroaster is quoted as saying," God is  he, having the head of a hawk; having a spiral force."  Hawks spiral in the sky as they hunt. Spiral is also the mathematical conception of the Universe by the renowned physicist Albert Einstein.  It seems the Metaphysics of Gnosis ( Alchemy, Qabalah, Tantra etc.), are the Quantum physics of today!
You also may note, that only in the lower cup, is the flowing water of life, shown as rectilinear forms, rather than spiral. This is because of mankind's blindness to  the wonder and beauty of the Universe by demanding straightness.,. i.e. linear sighted. We know that Euclidean geometry depends on the conception of  straight lines, but  Riemann, Bolyai, and Lobatchewsky (Mathematicians) have proved that the Parallel Postulate is found to be incapable of proof. Thus, the straight line has no true correspondence to reality.  I would highly recommend that the True Student of Tarot, get the Book of Law by A. Crowley....it is more than significant in aiding understanding the Occult metaphysics which can be compared to the quantum physics of today. Even the "New" String theory, was forseen as the "sperpent force" of the ancient metaphysicians.
For the querent, when The Star-key-17, is thrown during a reading, it means, Hope, faith, and unexpected help. There is a principle of self esteem and confidence here, maybe even recognition of self sufficiency and talent from others. In the next 17 wks or months, the querent will be experiencing an upsurge in courage to be themselves and in so doing, assisting others in their self- esteem.  The querent may be hearing their own song through meditation and moving with love. calm and peaceful rythm.. Opening to the Goddess within. Contacting the Dark Universal Unconscious which is the Ocean of Natural Intelligence.

There can be a state of dreaminess, and deceived hope, if ill defined.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper....oh yeah, don't forget to "smell the Roses"!
