How To Interpret The Star In Tarot

When you draw The Star tarot card in your reading it floods the entire reading with positivity. Anything that is showing up as less than positive or a challenge will be helped along with this card, as it represents inspiration and hopefulness for the future. It may also be suggesting you may be going through quite a spiritual time where you feel one with nature or the universe, and things are unfolding in a desirable way for you.

Use the energy of The Star to get ahead.

The Star Tarot Card

If you have been feeling a little stuck lately in your career or in relationships in general, when you draw The Star in your Tarot reading, now is a great time to think about the changes you would like to make, and start making plans as to how you will go about changing what you feel needs to be changed.

The Star Tarot Card can indicate inner healing from past hurts.

Sometimes the Star is exactly what is needed after a long time of pain and suffering in some area of your life. Use the sound of water to relax, or be near a stream or river and allow the earth energy to replenish your soul.

The Star does not mean immediate success.

Given the watery nature of this card, it can be likened to a ship sailing a long distance being guided by the stars at night to steer its course. The journey may be a long one, but it is important to keep certain stars in sight so the captain knows they are going the right direction. This is a metaphor for life: You may have big dreams and feel inspired, but there is a journey you need to take first, and it is important to keep your eyes on the Star you see in the distance ie the new career, the new relationship or the new business success etc. The Star Tarot card reminds us that what you want is possible, but you must be patient and not lose sight of that inspiration that is driving you forward.

How The Star Is working in my life at the moment.

Lately, I have been taking a very deep transformation journey in relation to spirituality and energy in the quantum field, so I am not at all surprised this card has come up for me today. I have been doing a lot of meditating, and exploring the teachings of the Chakras (the energy centres of the body) and how they relate to my health, my relationships and my relationship to money. It has been hugely empowering to say the least.

The Star reminds me I am in a very inspired place, and feelings of renewal and healing are around me, and I feel life is on an upward swing.

What if you want to draw this card but it doesn’t show up in your readings?

Even if you would love to see this card in your Tarot reading, but it is not presenting itself, you can still draw on the energy of the card. The energy of the archetypes of each of the Major Arcana cards are available to all of us as they represent big common human themes. Ask yourself ‘Where in my life can I be more inspired at the moment? Where might I need some inner healing and renewal? What are the big dreams that I had once that I have possibly let go of over time?’ Then spend some time in meditation and quietening your mind to allow your higher self to receive some answers.

What are your experiences with moments of inspiration in your life? Did you follow through on that inspiration or dismiss it as just a fantasy? I would love to hear your thoughts, so feel free to leave a comment.

  1. Hi Liz,

    really great article. I myself like to call on a reading when times get a little difficult or just needing some guidance. I think what I really like about this article is you actually explain the meaning of the star card.

    Most of the time I’m not too sure what the cards mean. Your right about having to look at the areas in your life that need inspiration or healing. I think being able to look at yourself this way will help you to identify what support you need.


    1. Thanks for the comment Layne. Yeah I like to get to the point with card meanings rather than going into too much detail about all the symbolism and astrological/numerological references. They are all important factors of course, but my eyes tend to glaze over all the finer details of each card when I am trying to apply it to a situation in my life because even though I find it all interesting and could write a whole blog post on each symbol, it doesn’t have practical application right in the moment.

    ‘The Star Tarot Card can indicate inner healing from past hurts.’ I have like this part of your writings.

    My self I like so much meditation mostly I use Chinese sound tracks to meditate as it makes me free my head after a tough stressed day. Staying alone in the room with nice relaxation room smell and yoga sitting positions is what I do the most.

    Am impressed of that star teaching where you have related it with meditation. This will make me start following my star news in the morning so I try and see how I have to live my day by day life.

    May be as you said following stars helps on the money improvement side when someone follows the direction of where his stars goes. Thank you for the nice teaching about stars and meditation.

    1. Thanks Lucy. The Star card is one of my favourite cards as it is all about inspiration, healing, and general life flow. Not quite sure what you mean by following your Star news daily-can you clarify? For me, I try and follow my inner guide to navigate towards inspired moments in my life. Thanks for visiting!
