There are eight stars (one big and seven small) flashing in the night sky. The big one is said to be Sirius, which can bring hope and confidence to those who seek help. Under the twinkling stars, there is a totally naked woman. She is kneeling on her left knee at the edge of the pool, while her right foot is in the water, and is pouring two jugs of life-giving water into the pool and onto the shore. The water spit out by women is just the water in the Chalice of the Temperance card, which gently nourishes all life on earth and is a symbol of vitality. The water of life is not passed in two cups. On a branch not far from the pool, there is an immortal bird, indicating the immortality of life. The earth represents consciousness, the water stands for unconsciousness, the immortal bird is the sublimation of the spirit, and the naked woman symbolizes the true self. It can be said that the Star is a card that brings hope to people and indicates the realization of fable and the interaction of inspiration and spirit. This card suggests that people should not give up hope, and that only self-confidence, self-respect and self-improvement can lead to achievements.
The key word of the Star card is “hope”, but the hope and optimism of the Star is usually unrealistic. Although the Star card is very beautiful, its appearance seldom points to reality. The Star are more related to people’s psychological state, which means that people are in a state of hope and believes that things will have a positive results.
Although the positive feelings brought by the stars are pleasant, they are not solid, because of the lack of material and realistic measurements. Of course, this pure joy may result from spiritual awakening, but more often it is due to ignorance or long-term depression. Ignorance usually occurs when the person first starts working on something, and due to a lack of awareness of the difficulties ahead, and an obsession with imagining success, the person falls into a state of drifting. Long-term depression depends on whether you have the experience that when a person encounters great difficulties, setbacks and pain in his heart, he sometimes becomes optimistic suddenly and unexpectedly for no reason. In case that things have reached the point where it is impossible to change, the person involved usually has to let nature take its course. In fact, the reality of the situation is not any better, but the mood is suddenly as good as the person has just morphine – this illusionary state of infinite optimism generated by the psychological stress reaction, is also the embodiment of the stars.
But no matter what kind of hope and optimism, the illusory things always can not last long, and the person involved will soon fall back to reality. Without adequate preparation, this person is about to learn very soon that “reality is cruel”, so it is important to consider this person’s reality through the other cards in the spread. If the Star card is accompanied by a fluttering card such as the Swords or the Chalice, the present happiness is likely to be the castles in the air, which is unlikely to be realized. In contrast, if the Pentacles and Wand cards appear at the same time, it will be safer, but things may not be as good as expected.
Of course, the assertion has to be considered in the light of the reality of the situation. If what is consulted does not depend on actual material, then the support of reality is another matter. Most ignorant and naive children are not sophisticated and do not harm others, and those who have experienced pain for a long time will have some empathy for the pain of others. If the stars appear, generally speaking, at the time the person involved is also considered a kind and lovely person. And because they are not bound by the world, they are able to imagine what they want, so the Star card is especially good for creative professions. In addition, as long as it does not require a financial basis, and the ultimate goal is not material, the Star card still means a good assertion. For example, back packing and spirituality – if what the person is seeking is about feeling and intuition, the situation will be good.
