The Star holds number 17, and it is the eighteenth tarot card of the Major Arcana cards.
The Star tarot card, in its core, usually represents finding peace within by releasing all that doesn’t serve you anymore and believing there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
The Star Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawing, The Star may come up straight, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic reader conducts their readings, because a tarot card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
The Star card would represent:
|Having hope and faith in the future||Manifesting wishes|
|Being aware of your blessings||Having great expectations|
|Regaining motivation and inner strength||Seeing clearer|
|Being stimulated to a higher level||Receiving answers|
|Sharing with others||Opening your heart to allow love to flow freely|
|Holding no resentments||Not holding back|
|Finding peace within||Being untroubled|
|Having renewed faith|
In a reverse position, The Star would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Filling yourself with negativity||Lack of creativity|
|Being bored||Falling into despair|
|Holding onto grudges or the past||Unfulfilled hopes|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If The Star would sit in a horizontal position, it advises you to take your time to find inner peace.
It is time for you to release from yourself and your life all that doesn’t serve you anymore, doesn’t cherish you, or doesn’t help you grow. It can be a job opportunity or a closed person. You should be prepared to move on with your life and have faith in the future. It indicates that you may have a hard time before letting go, but it is the only way, and it will happen for you to open your heart and heal.

Whichever method you use to pull the card, listed below are some of the questions and answers you may get when you pull The Star.

The Star – Love and Relationships
The Star would signify that your relationship is progressing into something bigger and more profound. It can be a commitment or reaching a new level of intimacy by knowing the other partner better and learning more about their inner world. It can indicate that the past problems will stay in the past, and you have both realized your relationship’s worth, so you have both chosen healthier ways to communicate and solve issues for a better and healthier relationship.
How someone sees you or feels about you?
They see you as someone who is creative, serene and has a strong faith in a brighter future for both of you. They see you as someone who puts much effort into the relationship and emphasizes the need for intimacy. You may be the one who tends to value healing and healthy energy around both of you, a value that your partner has learned from you.
Just starting dating?
If you have started dating this new person, The Star may indicate that your date sees you as someone who may be spiritual or have strong faith in God. They may also notice you being in touch with your feelings and valuing your inner peace and happiness more than anything.

What not to do?
In terms of what not to do, it would advise you to look deeper into the issues on hand before you decide to let go of your relationship. If you still want to be with your partner, but you feel like the relationship cannot work because of current and past issues, you may want to look into why you are feeling this way. If you really can’t do anything anymore, you should communicate with your partner. Let them know how you want them to treat you and what you want them to do for you to open your heart and be more trusting towards them.
Reverse Position (Love and Relationships)
If you pull The Star, reversed indicates that you have lost faith in your relationship, and you may be focusing more on the negative aspects rather than the positive ones. Your relationship may have lost the spark, and it may have been stuck in a tedious monotony for quite some time now. It can indicate that you are not willing to push it forward or invest more than you have already done. Let your relationship flow in the way it goes.
The Star – Finance, Business and Career
In business and career, The Star is a good sign that you may have new job opportunities coming your way, which may be precisely what you have wanted to manifest for a long time, or how you always wanted your career to advance. It can indicate that you may be working in a creative field, or your job may ask for a more creative approach from you.
It is also a good sign if you have had job interviews, it may indicate that you will receive positive feedback. Regarding finances, it suggests that you are enjoying an excellent financial status at the moment, but it is not yet stable, and it can be temporary if you don’t make suitable wise investments.
What not to do?
The Star would advise you to focus more on the positive side of things. You may start to notice that things change for the better, you will have more positive energy to push things forward, and you may be able to manifest more easily the opportunities that you want in your life. Things are not as bad as they seem, and it may all be in your mind.
Reverse Position (Business and Finance)
In this case, it could indicate that you are not feeling happy or content with your job anymore. Instead, you feel stuck and lack creativity. You may feel like your job is getting the best of you, or it is the reason you are experiencing a creativity block. If you feel down and unable to get out of the monotony you are in, you should first have a look at your attitude and how you perceive your situation.
Regarding finances, it indicates that you have let your financial situation slip through your fingers, and you need to take charge as soon as possible.
The Star – Timing

The Star – The Message Answer
Sometimes, we don’t have a specific question. We just want to know how our day will look like, or how we should approach the day ahead. This reading is best performed in the morning, so you form an idea of what that day will bring you.
The Star would foretell a day when you may feel more positive than usual and more approachable. You will feel lighter and happier, and you may have an easier time letting go of situations that do not make you happy anymore.
If you pull The Star in reverse, it indicates a day when you may feel stuck in a tedious monotony. It suggests that you may find a hard time letting go of things that have already passed their expiry date, but you still fear the change or the loss.
