What does The Star Tarot card mean?

Learn the meaning of The Star Tarot card in under a minute!

The Star Upright Meaning

The Star Tarot card is about reconnecting one's soul with the divine -- the transcending of personality, family, community, and reputation. It has to do ultimately with the freedom to be one's self. The soul is responding to celestial influences -- forces that can provide the personality with a stronger sense of purpose. The Star card helps us to remember our exalted origins and our attraction to a higher union.

This card could also be called The Celestial Mandate -- that which refers us back to our reason for being, our mission in this lifetime. The Star reminds us that, in a sense, we are agents of divine will in our day-to-day lives. If we let go of the idea that we are supposed to be in control, we can more easily notice and appreciate the synchronicities that are nudging us along. In this way, we become more conscious of the invisible helping hand, and we better understand our place within -- and value to -- the larger cosmos.

The Star Reversed Meaning

The Star card reversed suggests that you are temporarily alienated from your brilliance and usefulness. You may feel clumsy, unskilled, at odds within your true nature.

Perhaps you are forgetting your soul's purpose in this lifetime. Focus on your unique gifts and talents -- their source is divine. It's your job to learn how to apply them in any situation your life offers you.

The Star Advice Position

The Star card advises that you rededicate yourself to your higher values, increase your spiritual cultivation and meditation practice, and surrender to the greater good. Connect to your higher self -- a being of a larger realm traveling on an evolutionary course that started long ago and runs indefinitely into the future. This is the part you wish to contact and communicate with.

Now is a period for quiet contemplation. Listen for the voice within. Anything that would interfere with this communion may not be serving your best interests right now.

The Star Love Position

The Star suggests that you may receive information from your higher self about the reason you came here -- to this planet at this time. This is a profoundly reorienting experience. As we touch our greater self, the eternal aspect, our personal lives and love relationships come into better perspective.

The feeling of being a stranger in a strange land vanishes. Great joy is inherent in this card's placement. You are consciously on the way home in a spiritual sense, no longer flailing in the dark.

The Star Career Position

When the Star is in this position, you may work with an individual who understands his or her true purpose, someone who has a mission in life. There is great wisdom available to this person and he or she is not caught up contesting the way things are. This is a person who lives their life from the inside out, uncontrolled by external events.

He or she maintains composure and accepts gracefully whatever unfolds in the workplace without needing to challenge the current circumstances. Ask yourself, What kind of trust does a person have to have to proceed with such openness? This accomplished soul provides a unique vision of one who harmonizes with life. And yes, this is something you could emulate and achieve for yourself!

The Star in a Yes or No Card Reading
