What Does The Star Tarot Card Mean?
Overall picture ofthe star tarot card
In the star (tarot card), a giant shining star with eight rays of light is surrounded by smaller stars that all have the same light. The female figure in the center is completely naked, her left knee on the ground and her right foot on the water, pouring out the water of life from two large spouting jugs.
The women pours the water in her hand without worry, proving that she does not shy away from it. Pouring water from a bottle into a pool is merging one’s emotions with heart, while pouring into land is merging one’s thinking with actions.
The water in the bottle is a source of wisdom and inspiration, and its natural flow means that the subconscious mind is set free, even if this freedom is temporary. But her feet did not penetrate the water because the consciousness was only stirred, but not penetrated deeply.
The sky represents the upper level of the world, the tree shows human wisdom and ability, and the Bird of Thoth means joy.
The naked figure implies that old things have been removed without any burden and symbolizes perfect nature. The prototype of this star goddess may be Artemis, the goddess of the moon, representing eternal youth and beauty.
The star tarot card is the No.17 card – composed of the powerful 1 and the breakthrough-seeking 7. 1+7=8, and the 8 eight-pointed stars on the card suggest an inseparable connection with the strength tarot card. It is very sublime in its idealism, not just a small stage plan.
There are a total of eight stars on the card, each of which is an octagram, and the seven minor stars have an awning number of 56, corresponding to the number of Minor Arcana.
The major star corresponds to Venus in the solar system, while the other seven minor stars correspond to Mercury, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
In the earliest rider waite tarot cards, this major star was also the “Star of Hope” – the common ideal of the Golden Dawn Association.
