The Star Tarot Card Description
This description is based on the Rider Waite Tarot Deck. A naked young woman kneels at the edge of a pool, not unlike pool in the Temperance card. The sky is illuminated by brilliant bright stars. She holds two jugs in her hand, what she takes from one, she replenishes with the other. The jugs never run empty, signifying the abundance of energy in the universe. This could be a cleansing ritual, or the moment of discovery when she realises how the universe really works. The Star could symbolize the people or things we are inspired by, or the guiding star of Bethlehem, guiding us towards our dream life or life purpose. Life purpose and gifts emerging are strongly linked to this card.
The Star is one of the luckiest cards in Tarot, and when it appears it means a wish comes true. This is a time of good fortune, brilliant ideas and even spiritual growth. In some instances, it can literally predict fame and recognition.

TIMING: Does The Star Tarot Card Predict any Particular Timeframe?
🕔 This card is only a timing indication when you specifically asked a timeframe question. For example, if you want to know if something will happen, and when, then you need to draw two separate cards. These are in fact, two separate questions. This is a fundamental principle to understand if you want an accurate tarot reading – and it is core to my teaching in my book Tarot in 5 Minutes.
🕔 The Star card represents January 21 to February 20. If the card is reversed, timing will be longer – perhaps up to a year later, same date.
Karina’s Timing Method:
I am using a traditional major arcana timing method here, based on the zodiac sign assigned to each card.
What is the Meaning of The Star Tarot Card Reversed?
When the Star is upside down then the light does not shine as brightly and its healing powers are limited. As a result, you feel blocked. Ask yourself, what is limiting my life? What attitude is blocking me? Do you:
✔️ Feel lost and struggle to believe that things will get better?
✔️ Struggle to see your own beauty and self-worth? You’re a star in waiting.
✔️Lack confidence and secretly feel that other people are better at doing things than you?
What you should do now, is turn the card upright! This is a way of saying ‘I am ready to shake off my limiting self-beliefs.’
