The Starfire Codes publication dives into impactful insights, stories, and discoveries at the nexus of survival, media, innovation, metaphysics, spirituality, expanded consciousness, intelligence, and the truth.

Author Demi Pietchell brings us on a simultaneously pragmatic and whimsical personal and informational exploratory journey that digs deep into forging a greater understanding of the universe around us and our place in it - who we are, how we got here, how this place works, how to survive and thrive living here, what exactly we might be meant to accomplish, and, of course, "why.”

In the tarot, the light inside the Hermit's lantern comes from the Star card. The Star comes after the Tower. The Tower is some kind of unexpected divinely orchestrated event. The Star is about healing after sudden upheaval, having nothing but yourself left, nothing but your consciousness, your resonant knowledge, the will to survive and heal and move on. You're navigating solely by the stars. The energy from this is what lights the way for the Hermit's quest for wisdom, usually spiritual wisdom.

In the Hermit's lantern in the traditional Rider Waite tarot, the Star is represented by the Star of David. But that's really a 2D representation of the Star of Solomon. The Star of Solomon is the merkaba, the light body, the star tetrahedron. It's an alchemical symbol which combines the symbols for all of the elements and phases into one symbol. The upward pointing triangle/pyramid represents divine masculinity, the downward divine femininity, with both of these functioning in balance within each human being, within each couple, in nature, in the universe... "as above, so below."

The idea of Solomon's syndrome takes this a step further: How much of what you have been told is actually real? How does what you think you know differ from the truth?

The alchemical symbols for the four elements can be seen represented here too. Fire, air, earth, and water. Brought together, they create, again, the perfect balance. In the major arcana, you see all four of these elements present on the Magician's table... fire is the wand, air is the sword, earth is the pentacle, and water is the cup. He has in front of him everything he needs to manifest anything he could ever want.

I love to learn, and while I do have formal degrees in film and television and interactive telecommunications, I’ve always been an autodidact at heart, and I prize and value others who bring all ……
