Today’s Tarot Card Reading come from The English Magic Tarot by Rex Van Ryn, Steve Dooley and Andy Letcher Copyright 2015 (The unfamiliar terms used with this deck is in England’s English)
The Star – Major Arcana
Description: Sir Isaac Newton stands amidst the heavens, He holds a prism that splits starlight into a rainbow. Planets wheel about him.
Interpretation: The Star representsa hope. We have always looked to the heavens for portents and omens, the Star in the East. Astrologers the world over have sought to understand the influence of the planets on our mundane lives. Renaissance natural magic consisted largely of the attempt to draw down benign astral influences from the heavenly spheres.
We now know what our ancestors did not; that starlight has travelled countless light-years to get here. To see starlight is to see back into the endless depths of the ancient past. Moreover, every element from the periodic table that makes up the world around us was forged in a star. We are quite literally stardust. I find all of this beautiful, mysterious, and profoundly hopeful. No wonder that magical consciousness, the statement fall into when we do magic, is sometimes called starlight consciousness.
Our card shows Sir Isaac Newton, the great English physicist, splitting light with his famous prisms. His fame as a scientist now obscures the that he spent much of his life studying alchemy. So although he’s here doing science, splitting the world into it’s constituent parts, he’s also reaching out to try and understand the greater mysteries. He seems on the Brinkman knowing. His body is filled with hope.
Reading: The atar suggests you’ve everybreason to feel quite hopeful. Perhaps the greater mysteries lie within your grasp. If reversed,then you may well have a done hope or fallen into a state of despair. Allow yourself to be touched by starlight, literly or metaphorically. It will remind you to wonder.
From The Rune Site

Casting meaning: Like the birch tree coming to life from a seed planted in the earth, Berkana represents a new beginning and is also a powerful birth rune.
The Romance Rune suggests a great desire surfacing in your life or becoming infatuated with a person different from the people you normally associate with.
Turning up this stone indicates being drawn into situations or affairs that defy reason or being drawn away by forces outside of your control.
This stone carries with it forces that drive us beyond our usual good sense.
It indicates good luck in the short term as it denoted getting fired up by daring new plans and options.
It can also indicate becoming obsessed about an idea.
N is for Nion, sometimes called Nuin, which is connected to the Ash tree. Ash is one of three trees which were sacred to the Druids (Ash, Oak and Thorn), and connects the inner self to the outer worlds. This is a symbol of connections and creativity, and transitions between the worlds.
In Norse legend, Yggdrasil, the World Tree, is an Ash. Its roots grew down far into the Underworld, and its branches reached all the way up into the heavens. Odin hung himself from the tree for nine days as a sacrifice. Ash also features prominently in the Irish myth cycles, and is often depicted growing beside a well or pool of wisdom.
Mundane Aspects: Remember that for every action, there is a consequence, and these effect not only ourselves but others as well. What we do in our life will carry into the future and possibly even beyond. Every one of our words and deeds has some sort of impact.
Magical Aspects: The Universe is like a giant web. Strands bind us all together, either closely or at a distance. We are all connected in one way or another, so it is important to find harmony between the spiritual realm and the physical, and between all living beings. Endeavor to live a spiritual life that considers the needs of the natural world around you.
