In the Star, we see a young naked woman kneeling. One foot is on the water and the other is on land. She is pouring water into the well and also onto the land. This symbolises the woman making sure the well remains but also allowing other things to grow in the future. This is a future-oriented card and moves you to think about what represents the shining light in your life, and how you can move towards it.
Today you have the opportunity to be open to dream about or plan for the future. This card, also gives us a chance to let the dust settle from the events prior to this card.
What are your plans from here? Do you feel confident about them or do you feel naked and exposed?
As people in Westernized societies, we are very future focused, tomorrow I’ll do this. This afternoon I’ll have to do this and next year……The Star faced in a negative or reversed position might mean that we are so focused on the future that we forget to live in the now. What is nice now, how did you get here? Are you happy with the road travelled so far?
I am a great one for big future plans but there is this saying; “if you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.” If found this in my own life when; what was meant to be a year holiday became an immigration to the other side of the world. And what was meant to be several years work on an University degree and helping my husband’s business became a time where we ran, worked and sold a business and had two children (whilst finishing the degree). Overall plans in this card are great but life wouldn’t be exciting if we did not get many curve balls along the way.
In the Rider Waite deck this card is pure, open and Magical to a certain extend with the lady standing on the water in the well. In the Crowley Tarot this card becomes even more magical looking at a purple goddess in a calm flow of activity. In most decks the underlying ideas of future planning and present nurturing should come to the fore front.
