Star Tarot Card Meanings
The Star brightens a darkened sky, with the promise of a better tomorrow and brighter times waiting on the horizon; it’s the perfect card to follow The Tower, offering hope and optimism for the future.
If times have been tough then The Star tells you to have faith, to believe in yourself and the times that lie ahead. This card can bring healing to a situation, whether illness, or if there have been rifts with another. Depending upon placement, it usually indicates better times further down the road, improving circumstances rather than immediate.
If you’ve experienced hurt in love or relationships then The Star encourages you to have confidence in the future, it may be time to leave the past behind and to have faith that something better is destined. The gentle and uplifting atmosphere this card generates is extremely good when it falls alongside positive relationship cards, or a new relationship, as it’s blessed with shared harmony and portends to a good future.
For those who work in the public arena the message of this card may be literal, or lead you to provide inspiration to others. Plans and goals hold the promise of bright prospects under the light of The Star.
If reversed or badly aspected, it can suggest feeling discouraged, lacking hope, unfulfilled desires or expectations, false hopes.
