Origin of Tai Chi- 40. Step up with Seven-Star Strikes
“Seven Star” means that the hands are not in the same line; they are slanted facing together.
The “Seven Stars” refer to the five “Stars” (actually the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn) plus the Sun and Moon.
The move is called “Seven-Star Strikes” because of the way the hands move about. The five stars are far way but their light is always there, they are in a certain order. So too, the fists are there and move in a certain order. And, like the Sun and Moon, the power is always present.
