Star Tarot Card Meanings and Descriptions
In the Star card, there is a woman who kneels at the edge of a pool of water. Her one foot stands on the ground (representing her good reasoning such as practicality and logic) while the other foot is sunk in the water (representing her intuition, inner values, and spiritual strength.)
The woman is holding two containers that both pour water on the seemingly dry land and in the body of water. This also shows an endless cycle that must be done in order to achieve harmony and balance between the conscious and subconscious. There is also lush greenery that surrounds the woman and it seems that it is nourished through the woman’s care.
It is also noteworthy that the woman is naked, symbolizing her purity and vulnerability that shines brightly even during a night sky. Moreover, this could also imply that one must create their own light even in times of darkness. Behind her, there is a large star and seven small stars around it. The large star is the imagery of her inner beliefs and foundations while what surrounds it stands for chakras as divine intervention and guidance.

Star Tarot Card Meaning Reversed
A reversed Star card in a reading simply means that you are disconnected with yourself and you currently have a pessimistic view in life. You are starting to question your faith and hope in the world because of everything that is happening not in your favors. The feeling of being stuck in a streak of bad luck – this is the theme of your life right now. It baffles you as to why bad things are on your side, and you are unsure when these will be put into a halt. However, all of these challenges are surely just a blessing in disguise. Remind yourself that there is always good in bad, and sooner or later the lessons will be a revelation to you.
Getting this card may also be a trial of how strong your faith is. Accept everything that is happening to you and you may begin to see that the grass is not always greener on the other side; it is where you cultivate your foundation properly, just like your belief.
What is more, it could also mean that you have lost your sparkle; you are currently uninspired or unmotivated to whatever the reason may be. The heart that was once full of energy and ball of optimism has faded, and so you feel like life is so bland and tedious. You might be feeling stuck with your routines and nothing feels so exciting anymore. Maybe, taking time to reflect and recharge can help you get back to your feet.
Find time to reassess your priorities and do things little by little. Surround yourself in an environment where encouragement and creativity find you again. Meditation and yoga might also do the work, as they can help you be in the moment and reduce your worries. Take any activity that works for you so can reconnect with your inner self again.
