EMERGING STAR – Mystic Illumination Tarot
I’m in the dance of the two,
the changeless and the ever-changing,
the eternal essence and the dynamic cataclysm.
I’m bursting myself into existence,
exploding between the worlds,
sprinkling glittery stardust
throughout space and all its in-betweens.
Imagine dragons and goddesses -
emerging, becoming, and transforming,
what I am, have been, have become.
I’m in the gap,
in the space between dance-steps,
circling around myself
and back again;
swallowing myself up,
only to explode myself into being again.
My wounds and hardships
have crystallized me into form.
Rising from the ashes
of my starburst
I regenerate myself anew.
From excrement emerges my crystalline goddess,
from serpent, my magical dragon.
I burn myself down
time and time again,
until I feel my butterfly wings
pressing against my chrysalis womb
and remember who I am.
I’m dancing the dance of the two -
emerging, becoming, transforming.
I am the owl, the lion, the woman,
I’m the primordial supernova
merging my inner world with my outer.
In the gap -
dancing the dance of the two,
between the me that I am and the me I’m yet to be.
I am crystalline stardust,
I am emerging,

If this card is showing up in your reading you are in a significant place. You’re in the gap, the gap between the physical and the nonphysical worlds.
You may feel confused, stuck, or as if you’re traveling in circles, but this is not the case. Imagine driving fast with your brakes engaged, or not knowing how to get someplace and then suddenly finding your way. Imagine showing up without familiar attire and tools, and then discovering that simply showing up was enough.
You are in the midst of change. Opportunity is knocking. Your heart is calling you to transform.
You may believe you are building a bridge between the worlds but you are not. You ARE the bridge between the worlds. You are the director and you’re integrating the opposing aspects of yourself. As you merge the two, you yourself are emerging. You are evolving. You are changing. You are transforming.
Hear the silence between words.
Feel the space between movements. This is your dance. It’s something in the way you move, your own rhythm.
Know that you are whole; there is no hole to fill.
Life’s pressures have made you who you are today. You persevere. Out of the wounds, now there stands a healer.
Change is messy. You’re worth it. Your divine essence is crystallizing and shining throughout. Remember who you are, where you came from, and why you are here. You really ARE made of stardust and you were born for this!
If Emerging Star has shone its way into your cards, the following questions may be helpful:
How have my wounds made me a ‘wounded healer’?
What part of me is ready to emerge?
What change have I been resisting?
What is my heart calling me to transform?
In what ways am I ready to shine my light in this moment?
