Hope, Faith, Inspiration, Healing. Wishful thinking. Light at the end of the tunnel. Bright times after a period of darkness or challenges. Something to look forward to.
Above all, the Star card represents hope, of a wish fulfilled or a wish that will be granted. The Star card is one of the brightest and most optimistic cards in the Tarot deck and can represent the light at the end of the tunnel, a bright end to a dark journey or the triumph of light over dark. The Star card symbolises the very human ability to hope or strive for more, that spark that allows us to believe that something is possible. We not only see the ‘star of hope’ but an angel pouring water from a vessel. This represents the flow of life and also the flow of creativity and that no matter what challenges or setbacks we face, the heart will go on. Hope continues to flow and so does life itself. In the card an Angel is getting water from the river to distribute on the land, indicating that we have the resources we need, that there will be future growth and life. We can hope for abundance and fertility. In the literal sense, it can indicate that you are a star or that your star will shine and you will be successful or recognised.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the Star card, this could indicate that you have lost hope or no longer believe that things will improve or get better. This can represent a creative or even writer’s block or that we are not being appreciated or recognised. Yet even in this position, this is such a positive card that the message is not to give up hope.
