THE STAR, TAROT
TRUMP #17 THOTH TAROT
THE STAR image from the THOTH
deck, the one I use the most, combines Egyptian, Cabbalah, myths and
Astrological symbols in a beautiful way. I love this deck and get many
inquiries about it.
Star card shows the Goddess, personified as Isis, or the planet Venus, She
unites the "as above so below" Hemetic maxim. She represents the
Astrological sign Aquarius and its' ideals of Univesal love, and vision.

Make a wish on a
star everyday. Believe in your dreams.
