THE STAR OVERVIEW
After living through the chaos of Key 16 (the Tower), the Star emerges from the ashes with her own warm feelings of renewed hope. She can’t pinpoint exactly why she’s feeling this way, yet she is. With a deep breath in, she steps out of the galaxy pool, and sits at the edge of the earth. Warmth. Beaming. Light. There is so much to do from here. So many things to see, and so many places to go! She looks up, and instantly remembers where she came from… and feels grateful to have this beautiful opportunity to live, renewed. What a gift from the Gods! A spiritual being in a flesh-and-bones experience, she reaches her heart up to the stars, and connects with their guiding glow. Subtly, at first, ancient memories begin to stir within her soul. A remembering. A re-awakening. A connection long forgotten. And now she knows what she is. Her timeline glows the most beautiful of hues as inspiration pours down. Pure. Honest. Naive, even. Hopeful and expectant she tugs on her light and watches as her miracle starts to flow.
Draw energy from your brightest inner-light, because you know exactly what you came here to do.
MESSAGE FROM THE STAR
Allow yourself to sink into the dream-like inspiration of the star. She sends a message of divine timing and renewed expectations, and she guides you to reach for that string of serendipity and faith. She promises you that your expectations will be met if you find your conviction, your hope and your excitement. Your future is increasingly bright! Find unwavering optimism and determination, because you are being truly blessed by the Universe at this time. Your core purpose – your light – is beginning to shimmer at the surface of your reality, and your path is being intrinsically tied to your biggest missions and brightest opportunities for expansion. You are stepping onto a path of fulfillment and happiness with starlight to guide you! Allow your innate essence to shine through any residual darkness right now. Uncover any limiting beliefs or self-doubt that you are holding onto, and find the courage to voice any unexpressed emotions. Release every bit of outgrown energy that is anchoring you to the past. Pull your focus from the past and put it on the future – you will find your biggest source of inspiration and love there. It is time to believe and ascend. The stars are aligning in your favour, and it’s time to trust them again.
QUESTIONS FOR THE SEER

•What’s the biggest, most badass future you can envision for yourself? Where would you be in 5 years?
• What does inspiration feel like in your body? Invite it in, then describe it.
• If you had to choose 1 word to describe your soul’s purpose, what would it be?
@astoldbylaralita I love that she is holding onto the star like a tether, or like someone holding onto a balloon - very hopeful, and like that hope is accessible - not some far off idea.
@crowingelements I can feel hope and connection to the Universe!
@andreabrownriley I love your drawing, but actually feel like she is holding onto something you cannot hold onto (the star.) Stars are not meant to be tamed.
@miralabruja When I first saw the color change, I’ll admit I was partial to the original blue background. But when I sat with it for a bit I realized why. The colors in the background make me think of the Crown Chakra and the Third Eye Chakra. The colors on her dress add in the Throat Chakra as well as her hands near her throat. This makes me feel like she’s receiving information and guidance from the Universe which allows her to see light in her situation. Which then allows her to express that light in forms of words or actions or even just feelings back to the Universe. That, to me, sparks an open flow of giving and receiving with the Universe.
@clolikewhoa Warmth, radiance, playfulness, happiness, carefree
@empresstarot.official The Star card reminds me of the beauty of a kite - a thing that takes patience, tension, balance, and awareness of one’s own resistance. Like the kite, we can’t be forced into our own rising.
@daviankclough Hopeful. Connected. Inspired. Wistful. Fated. Celebrated. Serenity. Destined.
@krista_diane I feel content - relieved. Like she just understands. It’s from within that she sees the universe expand, grow, and offer. There’s so much positivity and light. We just need to find out where to access it, and it’s in us all along.
