By taking a step back and realizing we do need rehab when we are in a dark and dreary place we give a voice to the part of ourselves that is hurt. You can’t expect something to get better if you don’t even acknowledge that there’s something wrong. And now is the time to be quiet and take the time to focus on rehabilitating any part of yourself that’s feeling broken or neglected.
It’s old news, but the key to rehab and giving our hopes and dreams new life is becoming a whole person. When was the last time you just sat down and enjoyed who you are as a person? When was the last time you took the time to just be comfortable?
If you feel obliged to meet social expectations this card could mean that your relationship with the outer world is currently taking a bit of a toll. You might have given up on improving your circumstances and now you’re just busy going through the motions of everyday life.
This happens from time to time, even for the most successful people. So don’t let the idea that your life can do with some rehab make you think that your dreams are all destined to fail. Quite the opposite. The Star’s eight energy gives you a chance to add a new zest to your life.
Spending quality time working on something that has real meaning to you can be just the thing you need to ignite those sparks that you feel when you know you’re doing something good for yourself.
If you’re single you might actually meet someone new pretty soon. The Star isn’t exactly the matchmaker of the tarot. The new hopes and dreams indicated by this card can manifest as an actual person. But if you want this relationship to last you’re going to have to focus on your own rehab - I mean the tainted idea you have of love - instead of setting unrealistic expectations on the handsome stranger.
Your hopes and dreams can come true, but they won’t just happen overnight. You need to work on your own shortcomings if you want to reach anywhere close to the amazing relationship you’ve been dreaming up since you can remember.
The truth is you’re going to rehab. You’re going to give your hopes and dreams new life. But just remember to set realistic goals, instead of falling prey to unrealistic expectations. This time is about rest and recuperation. It’s a time to be gentle with yourself and acknowledge your pain. You’ll only be able to heal the parts of you that have been bothering you if you slow down to see what the actual problem is.
And once you hit that nerve you’re probably going to want to take it easy for a few weeks so you can heal that pain. This card is an excellent omen for relationships. It’s as though, with a little rehab, you’ll be able to make your wish come true. Just remember, you’re going to have to do the work to make that dream a reality.
