Dreams Fulfilled, Getting what you want but not how you Expect, Good Prospects, Health Improvements, Hope, Jealousy, Theft, Wishes
The Star is the card of hope. You can expect to see signs of promise in a situation. If you have been considering giving up don’t! You will get results.
Sometimes, The Star can predict your dreams and wishes coming true. You will eventually get what you want, but not what you expect. None the less, you will get what is best for you. In a way, the Star is a reminder that destiny is always at play and all will work out in the end.
There is hope that you will achieve your deepest desires. If you desire a successful business or marriage, with hard work, you will get all that you dream of. The message of the Star is to be patient and everything will eventually fall into place.
It is more desirable if The Star appears in the future than it does in the present. If it pops up in the present, this mean that you have the gifts you need to achieve great things but you still have to put the work in! You will, in general, have bright prospect for the future and all of which comes with that. Surrounding cards, however, will tell if you will put all of you God given talents and intelligence to good use.
If The Star appears as a negative, I would divert to the pre-modern meaning of The Star which predicts theft. There will be people around you who are terribly jealous of your abilities and achievements. Remain vigilant because they may be waiting to knock you off your pedestal.
The Star's Historical Meaning
A warning of The Star is not to shine too brightly in the eyes of others who do not have as much as them. This is especially true if the ‘have not’s are in your general circle or around you in some way. In Pre-Modern times, The Star card often symbolized theft. You should, therefore, be watchful of making your grass appearing greener than your neighbor’s incase your home become a target.
The Star in a Love Reading
For love readings, the future looks promising. If you're waiting on your soulmate turning up, don't worry he's just around the corner. However, you may meet someone who is different from your usual type.
Curious about how a potential partner feels above you? Don't worry, your prospects look good. The Star means that they have noticed you and given you a second glance. If you have already been in contact The Star says their feelings are favourable towards you.
For relationships which are already established The Star is a good sign. The Star means that everything is going your way so do not worry too much about the future of the relationship. All seems rosy for now.
The Star in a Business Reading
You're in luck if you have received The Star for a Tarot reading on a business matter. The Star advises you to move forward with your plans, especially if you are in a creative industry. In fortune telling stars predict fame so this card is a welcomed addition to a draw.
The only thing I would warn against is bragging about your achievements. Because The Star is historically aligned with theft, I would be careful not to share too many details about your success with other people. Be cautious regarding what you post to social media. You can be a public figure without divulging sensitive information to those less fortunate.
The Star as a Yes or No
The Star is usually a yes although you may not get what you want how you expect to get it.
