Using the Tarot Card of The Star
(1) During the day, take the Tarot card of the Star out the deck and put the rest of the cards away. Leave this card on a dresser or table next to your bed with two white candles on either side of it.
Periodically during the day, contemplate the card with all its meanings and symbols. Permit your hermetic knowledge, experience and imagination to come together and bring the card to life in your "day-dreams." Calmly tell yourself that tonight you will dream an intuitive vision about the Star card which will give you great insight.
(2) Place objects which remind you of the Star card around your sleeping area. (This could include a representation of a star, the sigil of Aquarius painted yellow on a violet background, the Hebrew letter Tzaddi painted yellow on violet, a fishhook, two vases full of water, etc ...) Have a dream diary close to the bed.
(3) Just before you intend to go sleep, perform the Relaxation Ritual or take a Ritual Bath.
(5) Light the two candles on either side of the card and sit in front of it, contemplating its many meanings.
(6) With your Lotus Wand or index finger, draw a white circle and the blue Invoking Pentagram of Air in front of the card. Trace the yellow sigil of Aquarius in the center. Trace the Hebrew letter Tzaddi as well.
(7) Say, "I invoke the Great Angel HRU, the Mighty One who art set over the Secret Wisdom of the Tarot. Transform for me now this Card of Art so that it may become a true and accurate portal through which I may travel in the act of dreaming. Grant unto me a vision into the Twenty-eighth Path that I will remember clearly upon awakening."
(8) At this point create a phrase or mantra in your own words that will invoke the vision of the Star for you. It could be something simple like, "Star light, Star bright, dream I will of the Star tonight."
(9) Focus on the card for as long as you wish, then put out the candles and go to bed. Continue the mantra in your mind as you drift off to sleep. Tell yourself that you will have a relevant dream about the Star that you will recall immediately upon awakening.
(10) When you wake up, write down any impressions of your dreams in your dream diary as quickly as possible. All images, colors, words, or ideas should be included. You may find yourself very excited over a dream only to realize later in the day with your rational consciousness that it needs to be explored further.
If you do not have immediate success (and don't expect to)
simply get up and perform the LBRP. Go about your day in the same manner as before, periodically contemplating the Star card. Continue practicing the Invoking Dream Rite for a number of days until you succeed.
Once you progress through this technique, you can go on to explore other Tarot cards in your sleep. More important, this method will take you a long way toward communicating with your subconscious mind and ultimately with your Higher Self.

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
