The Star – Tarot Meaning Deep Dive

Welcome to part 18 of my 22 part Tarot Meanings Deep Dive series – each week we explore ONE major arcana card and uncover it’s secrets, symbols and messages.

Today we’re diving into The Star – my absolute FAVOURITE Tarot card in the whole deck! It’s a card of peace, hope and trust in the divine cosmic plan.

Grab your journal, pen and a cup of tea and settle in…

Keywords: hope, peace, ease, relax, let go, trust, surrender, divine cosmic order, feeling part of the universe

Symbols: stars, naked woman, pouring out 2 jugs, one foot in, one foot out of water (similar to Temperance)

Stars = the divine cosmos, our place in the universe
Naked woman = feeling at ease being vulnerable, comfort in your own skin
Pouring out 2 jugs = letting go, surrender, trust
One foot in water, one on land = integrating the spiritual with the day to day

Light Side: Relax! Let go and trust in a higher plan – everything is working out in the way it needs to.

Dark Side: Things will unfold in the way you need but not always in the way you want.

1. Divine Cosmic Order (and our sense of belonging and connection to it)

The Star reminds us that we’re connected to the divine cosmos and are part of a much bigger picture. We are all stars in the tapestry of the cosmos! There is an order and purpose to everything and all is divine, all is unfolding in the way it is meant to, but maybe not always in the way we want it to.

The Star also reminds us that we belong here and that we are okay, just as we are. Everything is okay as it is. Stress often happens when we believe the opposite – that things shouldn’t be this way and that we don’t belong, that much change needs to happen in order for the world to be okay and in order for us to be happy with ourselves. The Star says nah! That’s bullshit! Chill out and take a breath.

The Star comes when you’re ready to stop pushing. It’s not a card of inaction, but of acceptance. Once you embrace reality (and yourself) as they are, you free yourself up to do wonderful things without all the pressure and stress.

Journalling Questions:

♥ When you say to yourself everything is as it should be. I am okay as I am. All is well. I belong here,” what happens in your body? If you believed this, how would you live your life differently?

♥ Do you see yourself as part of the universe? Or just existing in the universe? Recall an experience you had where you felt a divine connection to the ALL – to life – to the cosmos.

2. Relax, Let Go and Surrender

The Star gently encourages you to trust in the universal, divine order of things and to get acquainted with your spiritual nature. While your body can be destroyed, your spirit is eternal and once you understand this you can relax, let go and trust that whatever unfolds over your life, you can handle it and you will be okay (in the spiritual sense).

When we approach life from this perspective, new vistas open up! New horizons appear! Magic happens!

Journalling Questions:

♥ Where in your life do you need to let go and relax more? Where could you use more trust and less worry?

♥ What would it look like if you lived your life from this vantage point?

3. Hope, Peace and Ease

After the big shake up of The Tower, comes The Star with it’s message of hope, as if to say “you know what? Everything is going to be okay after all.”

The Star is about embodying peacefulness, hope and ease. Instead of wishing for it, instead of trying to make others more peaceful, begin by embodying that peacefulness in small ways, in your day to day life.

Journalling Questions:

♥ What does embodying peace and calm look like for you? Try embodying peace and calm for 5 minutes or even 1 hour.

♥ How can you embody the peace and ease of The Star in this very moment?

The Wisdom of The Star

The Star advises us to stop pushing and trying to make things happen. Stop trying so hard to be different than you are. Stop worrying about your “plan”. Just let go. Surrender to the divine order of the cosmos and trust that all will unfold how in needs to.

Let me know – how do you plan on channelling your inner Star today?

  1. Thank you for the deep dive into the Star. You have me a much better understanding of this card. I’m wondering about the little bird sitting on the tree. It never gets too much mention in any of the explanations of the Star that I’ve read. I think the bird I is symbolic of telling us to try to get a full perspective of our situations.
