The Tarot Star Card: What It Means for Life, Love, and More
The Star is the Major Arcana card of healing and renewal, according to Tarot expert and creator of The Magic Self-Care Tarot Deck Leah Vanderveldt. As she tells mindbodygreen, you’ve probably been through a lot if you draw a Star, and this card represents the calm after the storm or the time to come back to yourself.
Clearing space and getting back to basics promotes the inner peace you seek, and that’s what this card reminds you of, says Vanderveldt, adding that it’s associated with the sign of Aquarius. “The card features the symbol of Aquarius, the water bearer that corresponds to cleansing from the past, hope and, ultimately, growth,” she explains.
And according to Brigitte Esselmont, founder and CEO of Biddy Tarot, the woman depicted in the Star card is also practical. and intuitively, her nudity symbolizes her purity and vulnerability. The one large star shown also symbolizes her main essences, while the seven smaller stars represent the seven main chakras.
“It’s a beautiful card with a deep and powerful message, especially for those who are going through a certain rebirth,” Esselmont previously told mbg, adding that it invites the reader to “shed their skin — all the layers that have accumulated over the years — and be ‘bare.’ under the beauty of the starry night sky” — that is, to be vulnerable, authentic and raw.
And as Vanderveldt adds, “When your reality and sense of self is shaken, you have the opportunity to come back stronger, wiser, more you than ever before. Prioritizing inner peace now will have negative consequences for your community and beyond.”
