The Star Tarot Card Description

The Star card shows a woman kneeling at the edge of a small pond. She is holding two containers of water. One container pours the water out to the dry land, as if to to nourish it and ensure its fertility. The lush green land around her seems to say that it is working. One foot is inside the water which shows the spiritual abilities and inner strength of the woman. The other foot on the ground shows her practical abilities and strengths. Behind her, there is a large central star surrounded by seven small stars which represent the chakras. There is bird standing at a tree branch which represents the holy ibis of thought. The Star's astrological correspondent is Aquarius.

Upright Star Meaning

The Star brings hope, renewed power, and strength to carry on with life. It shows how abundantly blessed you are by the universe as evidenced by the various things around you. It may not be directly evident at the moment, for this card follows the trauma of the Tower card. Remember that you hold within you all that you need for your fulfillment - the only thing that you need is courage. For this, you have all reasons to rejoice. To see this card is a message to have faith, for the universe will bless you and bring forth all that you need.

To see this card is a message to have faith, for the universe will bless you and bring forth all that you need.

To receive the Star in your reading means that you have gone and passed through a terrible life challenge. You have managed to go through this without losing your hope. While you suffered, you perhaps were not aware of your own strength, but you are now perhaps recognizing that the loss helped you discover your own resilience and inner power. It is only now that you can really appreciate all that you have.

Upright Star Tarot Love Meaning

Lots of hope in love and romance is signaled by the Star tarot love meaning. It’s likely that your sense of hope and optimism can be a powerful magnet for you right now, giving you a sense of charisma and charm. If you have been healing from a break up, this card suggests that you are well on your way, and you are slowly rebuilding your confidence so that you can move on. If your relationship has been going through a rough patch, this also may be a time of healing. So long as the two of you remain communicative and honest with one another, there is great potential for bringing the two of you closer together.

Career Meaning - Upright Star

When it comes to work, remain faithful that your ambitions will be achieved. This can give you great positivity that others will notice, and can bring you the opportunities that you hoped for. Should you be searching for a new job or a promotion, the star is a reminder to keep your hopes high. If you’ve gone through a difficult or stressful time at work recently, the Star also signals a period of healing. This should be a quiet and peaceful time as you recuperate. 

Finances Meaning - Upright Star

When it comes to your finances, the Star signals that one’s faith and positivity should help you reach your financial goals. While you put in the work towards your financial future, also make sure to take the time to appreciate and be grateful for what you already have, as that can be inspiration for you to continue along this path.

Reversed Star Meaning

When the Star card is reversed, it means that you are feeling as though everything has turned against you. The challenges that you would normally see as exciting seem instead to make you feel as though you cannot overcome them. You have lost faith in something, whether inside yourself or with something you normally find dear. 

Without hope, without faith, we cannot find the motivation to progress forward in the challenges that we face. Where in your life are you feeling hopeless? In what ways do you already feel defeated? And how does that affect your actions? The star reversed asks us to nurture our sense of hope and positive energy to help propel our actions with joy instead of fear.

Reversed Star Tarot Love Meaning

Self doubt and a loss of faith is clouding your judgement with the reversed Star’s appearance. Are you suffering from a loss of confidence? Do you pick at your own flaws with excessive harshness? What is making you feel unworthy of love? Others can sense this with you, and this can make you feel even worse while reinforcing your negative feelings about yourself. It is important now to remember all the wonderful things about yourself, so that you can see yourself as a worthy partner.

The doubt and loss of faith can also apply not just to yourself, but also to your feelings about love in general. If you have been single for a while, cynicism may make you believe that love only creates pain, or is an illusion that is not worth pursuing, when it is actually an attitude problem that pushes others away.

Career Meaning - Reversed Star

With the reversed Star, it may be likely that your negativity is having an effect on your work. You may no longer feel enthusiastic or creative, because you can only see things in a pessimistic manner. Have your hopes not panned out? Have you given up faith that things can get better? When we despair, we make a bad situation worse, and the will to keep going can be snuffed out. It is likely that though things may be tense right now, it isn’t as bad as you seem to make of it. A change in your approach, perspective or attitude may be all that is needed in order to give you motivation to make positive changes. 

Finances Meaning - Reversed Star

If you have been struggling with finances, the reversed Star can suggest that not all hope is lost, but you may have already given up. There are likely things you can still do now to change your situation, but only if you can muster up the positivity to see things in a new light, and take action. Opening your heart to a more positive outlook can also open your eyes to opportunity.
