Key words and concepts
|From the Shadowscapes Tarot|
Looking directly at the sun hurts our eyes, and the moon changes shape from night to night; only the Star provides a single, cool, constant point of light that we can use to guide us. For me, the Star signifies the spiritual impulse to live your true purpose. Now, I don't always know what that means, but it definitely is a mix of all those key words listed above, with some confidence and self-awareness added. I picked Stephanie Pui-Mun's art for this card in part because she really captures the luminescence of the Star. Doesn't that painting look like it could literally bring light to a dark room? I really recommend checking out her Shadowscapes Tarot Deck.
The optimism of the Star is so compelling in part because it suggests more than just the possibility of getting what you want; it represents finally knowing, deep in your bones, what it is you actually need to flourish. In some ways, the Star brings a message of being brave enough to do the thing you love, that brings you passion. Let yourself be uplifted by this card, and throw yourself into something that gives you joy!
