The figure

In the Tarot Cards, the illustration of The Star generally shows a young naked woman with long blue hair. Nudity symbolizes, in this Letter, hope for the futuretransparency, and innocence.

He has one of his knees on the ground, and in each hand, he holds a vessel with a liquid that he pours into a lake. The fact that the water is poured out symbolizes the act of watering, fertilizing, caring for, planting, to collect the fruits or the results later on.

The young woman is surrounded by bushes and leaves in a sky with seven colored stars, distributed symmetrically around an octave, much larger, and corresponding to the Sun. In conjunction with Cards 18 and 19, The Moon and The Sun form the group of the Arcana of the celestial bodies.

The Symbiology

The Star Card represents, in the Tarot, all the heavenly bodies that guide us through life. The ancient peoples used the stars to guide themselves in their land or sea travels, and the Archetype of the Star represents a guide, a lantern, which allows safe navigation throughout life.

When the querent withdraws this Letter, his capacity for self-expression is at the maximum, he feels in tune with the universal energy, and there is hope and belief in the future. It represents the light at the bottom of the tunnel. After all the difficulties and challenges, there is still room for hope. All the experiences we live result in new learnings that give us new emotional tools to face the obstacles that we face along the way.

According to Numerology, 17 is reduced to the number 8 (1 + 7 = 8), which is its base. This number leads to the theme of the law of karma and destiny, but in a softer way than the message conveyed by the Justice Letter.

The Star also represents Astrology due to the symbolism of the starry sky. Popularly, it is said that a person is born with a “star” when he has good luck and is successful in life. When everything that happens to him seems spontaneous and obtained without effort. The Star corresponds to path 28 of the Tree of Life of the Cabala: the victory of the foundation.

Reading, Symbiology, and Interpretation of the Major Arcana of the Tarot of Marseille

The Tarot is used as a tool for self-discovery and self-knowledge. In this sense, more than guessing the future, it serves to read and interpret all the elements of our life: it describes the current moment, clarifies the motives, desires, and intentions, and points out the path and the energies that are present in our life.

The possible readings for each Tarot Card are of virtually infinite variety. There is no single interpretation for each Card, for each Card arrangement, or each reading method. The Tarot is based on intuition. Each person who reads the message of a Letter, or of a set of Letters, intuitively reveals the meaning of the message of the Letter and how it is associated with their reality and life circumstances.

The word “arcanum” has its origin in Latin and means “secret.” In the Tarot, the Major Arcana are seen as universal, symbolic, and figurative figures: they are considered symbolic of great themes, moments, or people. They are considered archetypes; that is, they represent the most diverse feelings, moral positions, and human behaviors. When they arise in a reading, they indicate an important event or decision, be it practical, spiritual, or emotional. They also establish correspondence with the signs and planets of Astrology.
