The Faery Star is seven-pointed and rich in occult meaning. I won't go into detail here but I found a nice blog article for anyone interested in delving deeper. Here, in a roughly star-shaped spread (imagine the lines!), we will focus on the combination of meanings given by Emily Carding's Tarot of the Sidhe (but any Tarot deck will do) and each of the seven ancient Planets.
Moon - Intuition/Wisdom: Maker Two (2 of Pentacles, Jupiter in Capricorn) tells me that on the Faery Path, it will be easier for me to ground my esoteric wisdom into practical reality. A feeling of stewardship and belonging will result from their guidance.
Mars - Drive/Ambition: Dancer Queen (Queen of Cups, Water of Water) makes me laugh. The Fae have no affinity for the Martian agenda and abhor iron, the corresponding metal. Water corrodes iron... makes it rust. "Let your love be your only ambition!," they seem to whisper...
Mercury - Communication: The Dancer of Water (Ace of Cups, Root of the Powers of Water) brings me another message about living from the heart and to rather be silent than to speak unless the words I speak give birth to more love.
Jupiter - Good luck/Expansion: The Maker Four (4 of Pentacles, Sun in Capricorn) tells me that it's lucky for me to be on a third decan (4 of Pentacles) Sun Sign Path in this incarnation. I'm on the right path, halleluyah! This card also indicates that the Fae will have a grounding influence on me. I know that must sound strange given how we talk about people "being away with the faeries"... The thing is, if you're on a Faery Path, you're kind lost without them!
Venus - Beauty/Romance: The Maker Seven (7 of Pentacles, Saturn in Taurus)... Well, lessons in patience and endurance have come my way aplenty already in love and romance and maybe there are more ahead. But what hasn't killed me has certainly made me stronger and I'm not afraid. This card has the keywords 'Effort Sustained' on it... I like it! I want to keep working in the Venusian realm for as long as I live!
Saturn - Overcoming Restrictions/Limitations: The Empress (Venus) shows me that an creative solution will always be made available when I stay true to my Soul Sign Empress Path. Many of the the trials I have had to endure so far have been in the Venusian domain and I'm stronger for it, as well as better equipped to guide others who are feeling limited in love & romance.
Sun - Vitality & Success: Dancer Prince (Knight of Cups, Air of Water) is a sure sign that my Faery helpers will happily inspire any creative and artistic endeavours, and that my work with romance & relationships is favoured by the Fae.
