The Star Tarot
What is Star Tarot
The Star Tarot is the seventeenth (XVII) card in a suit of twenty-two cards called the trumps or Major Arcana in a traditional 78 tarot card deck. It is used for both playing and divination. The card’s ruling planet is Uranus, and its element is air.
How is the Star Depicted in the Tarot Card
The Moon is a nude female figure kneeling on the grass at the edge of a pond and holding a clay pitcher in each hand. Her one foot is on the ground while the other in the water. She pours water from the left pitcher into the pond that falls in concentric ripples. Simultaneously, she pours water from the right pitcher onto a green landscape in five rivulets.
The sky above her is illuminated with a large golden yellow star surrounded by small seven eight-pointed stars.
In the background, there is a tree on the hills on which sits a bird.
What Does the Star Mean in the Tarot Card
The Star is an embodiment of chastity, vulnerability, and generosity. It is a sign of hope, giving you the inspiration to move ahead in life. The foot placed on the land signifies common sense and practical abilities while the one in the water represents intuition and inner voice. The water, falling from left pitcher stand for fertility and nourishment. On the other hand, the five rivulets refer to our five senses.
The water in the pond symbolizes the rise of fears and emotions above the unconscious.
The large yellow star is associated with hope and strength while the seven small stars represent the seven chakras, planets or alchemy metals.
The tree on the hills stand for the mind, and the bird on it is an Ibis, the Egyptian mythological symbol of Thoth and Hermes who were the carriers of wisdom.
