The Star Description

The Star Tarot card features a nude woman at a pool's edge, holding two water containers, symbolizing the balance between the subconscious and conscious mind. She pours water to nourish the earth and sustain fertility, as indicated by the surrounding verdant landscape, while the other stream flows onto the land in five streams, representing the sensory experiences. Her dual stance, with one foot on land and the other in water, signifies a blend of practicality and intuition, grounding her actions in both reality and inner wisdom.

Her nakedness under the starry sky symbolizes openness and purity, emphasizing a connection to the natural and the cosmic. The backdrop of one prominent star, alongside seven smaller ones, points to her core identity and the spiritual energy centers or chakras, suggesting a theme of universal connection and internal harmony.

NOTE: The tarot card meaning description is based on the Rider-Waite deck and Decoding The Cards

Wishing For A Deeper Tarot Connection?

Decoding The Cards goes further than keywords and traditional interprations by providing exercises for each card in the tarot.

The exercises this book are designed to challenge you to delve deeper into the meanings of each card, as well as consider your own personal experiences in relation to the traditional meanings.

The Star Upright

The Star is a powerful card of optimism and hope — an invitation to believe in the power of possibility. After the tumultuous destruction of the Tower, a renewed sense of self and purpose is within reach. It suggests that you are undergoing crucial personal growth and development -— it is essential to be open-minded and pay attention to this process for it to succeed.

The Star can also be an indication of new opportunities — it is essential to remain open to these possibilities and trust in yourself and your ability to manifest success, even in times of difficulty. The Star encourages you to stay positive, pay attention to your dreams, and above all else, believe in yourself. Although challenges may remain, the future is bright and full of opportunity. 

The Star Reversed

The Star reversed is a sign of pessimism, distress, and despair. Weighed down by sadness and disillusionment, one may have lost all hope in the world. When this card appears in a reading, it tells its querent to seek healing and comfort as soon as possible.  

It can also mean one is not feeling particularly creative or motivated to pursue their passions. The reversed Star symbolizes uninspiredness and being stuck in a rut, unable to find joy in things they used to love doing. 

Finally, it advises its querent to take time for self-care and spiritual nourishment.
