TAROT CARDS: THE STAR
There is no love without hope, no hope without love, and neither love nor hope without faith.’’
At first glance, we encounter some similarities to the illustration in the Temperance. By a pool of water, a naked female figure is pouring water from two vessels, one held in each hand. In history, this symbolism was a personification of concepts such as purity, balance and beauty.
She is the embodiment of nurturing female energy, and as she pours the water to the land and the sea, she brings life to everything she touches.
The Star is the card of renewed faith. Now, the chaos from the preceding cards (the Devil and the Tower) is over and a new phase of healing has begun.
In general sense when the Star appears in a reading, it signals the arrival of healing, inspiration, happiness and fulfillment. The future is looking bright, the road is clear. The creativity and motivation blossoms. It is a time where you feel blessed by the heavens! Your spiritual journey deepens as you start finding the answers you were looking for.
Soothing colors and overall beautiful symbolism of this card can inspire you to feel the interconnectedness in nature, peace and balance whenever you feel lost. No matter how difficult life becomes, there is always hope.
The Star card corresponds to number 17, number of intuition, creativity and growth.
