The Star

The Star is regarded as the seventeenth card in the Major Arcana of Tarot Cards, which comprises of twenty-two cards in total.

The Story behind The Star Tarot Card

The Fool desperately continues to find his spiritual self. He decides to look to the stars in a desperate attempt for guidance. He then notices a girl who is carrying two urns full of water. She puts one into some water that is reflecting starlight, and the other into the dry ground. The Fool asks her why she did that. She tells him that people can drink from the pool of water and eat from the fruit trees that will grow in the watered land.

The trees quickly grow fruit and she invites The Fool to fill himself. She tells him that the stars are like our futures, distant but achievable, and that they should act as a guide. She then starts to disappear until a drop of starlight is left, which travels up into the sky and shines as one of the stars. The Fool now has a direction to follow.

Meaning of The Star Tarot Card

Unfortunately, many people go through a period in their life when it seems like all hope has disappeared. However, you can often see your way out. If you can’t, there should be a subtle guide somewhere. It might be hard to find, but it’s almost certainly there if you look for it and realise that it won’t stand out. The light is gentle, designed to get you back on the correct path.

The Star Tarot Card is strongly linked to spirituality and having faith. When one feels completely lost, The Star tells us that we will find our answer by looking up into the sky. The Star is important because it is our light in an otherwise dark place, a source of hope and inspiration. As in the story above, it is essential to remember that this is a distant guide and should not be relied upon by itself.
