Yellow Star is a Mayan reference for Venus, which they could not distinguish as a planet reflecting sunshine instead of another ember burning bright. Mythology relates Venus to the Roman goddess of love and beauty; its glow has historically been a symbol of feminine grace and power. The Maya used Venus’ strong pulse of light for masculine empowerment, virulence and supremacy. We can choose to synthesize the masculine and feminine perspectives. Yellow Star is a chance for us to feel beautiful in our power, and powerful in our beauty, but above all to feel a reflection of the sheer, resilient life force of the sun’s light upon our faces.
