Major Arcana is The Star, which shows a beautiful naked girl under the stars pouring refreshing water on the parched earth with one pitcher and reviving the stagnant water of a pond with another. She represents the glories of the earthly life, but also material enslavement to it. The stars above her are an eternal reminder of the presence of the spiritual world.
On this day in 1961, Eisenhower ended his term with a televised farewell address to the American
people. It was unrepresented for a president to speak to the people on his last day in office. This fact alone should be enough for any American citizen to take note of the warning Eisenhower left us as his final act as president. He urged his successor (John F Kennedy) to be wary of the rising military-industrial complex. The War Machine. Some would say the very War Machine that assassinated Kennedy for opposing the Vietnam War.
