Star in the Vision Quest is coming back to Full Awareness

I have written extensively about how the Major Arcana is linked to the Vision Quest. The vision quest is our ancestors way of staying close to Source (God) while incarnating on this planet. The Fool is about to fall down a cliff. This means he is about to go deep inside of himself and discover who he is. But the most important thing is to reconnect to Source. During the vision quest, the Seeker meets themselves in their feminine form. Our ancestors used metaphors when explaining things. When we are in our feminine form, we are one with Source because we are receiving this union. This is why in Tarot, the suit of cups is linked to our Soul and it is Feminine.

There are several vision quests in the Major Arcana (I believe there are 3). The Fool comes out of the Vision quest in the Hierophant . He goes back in again in the Lovers card, symbolised by Adam and Eve being cast out of Eden. In Chariot, the Seeker travels deeper within themselves. The Seeker finds his Soul in Strength card and he is back out of the Vision Quest in the Hermit card. He goes back into the vision quest in the Hanged man and he comes out into full consciousness in three steps, the Star, Moon, and Sun. Thus the Star speaks of increased clarity. There is healing and coming to terms with the answers received in the vision quest. This is the card for purification and healing. When you are in this initiation, you have a special energy in your eyes.
