the star is card of hope, inspiration, and optimism. it is the light that shines in the darkness. it signifies a brighter time ahead, most likely arriving after a tumultuous period of your life. you are not quite there, but you are out of the storm. this is a time for healing, to slow down and look within, and focus your energy on what you desire to move towards. the star is an awakening. it is growth. it reminds us to trust. the universe may have it's own timing, but that timing is divine and we must notice the perfection even in the most imperfect moments. it is from this place that we renew ourselves and recreate our lives. from this place, we can choose to search for a way to shine brighter. we do not have to understand it all or know the answers right now, but we can find peace and comfort from the prospect of better things to come.
it is so easy to get lost in the shadows. the darkness can flood our being when we are going through rough times in our life. we begin to concentrate on what feels hard and what is not going right, making us lose sight of what is good and going well. the star in the tarot deck arrives at times when we need that soft positive reminder that it is all okay. we are okay. it brings the light when we are in the darkness so that we can begin to see more clearly. so that we can have something to look towards. it can guide us along our way out of the darkness and into a better times. but we can not dive too deep in the past or seek out only the positive feelings of the future. we must see ourselves where we are at presently and find the light in that moment. we must conjure hope through this experience and shape it into trust. creating trust of the ebb and flow of life, to allow for what was to slip away and what will be to come naturally. we can embrace the ease of riding the waves.
as the light appears, we can seek it out and stoke the flame, encouraging everything to shine brighter. as we lean into the light, we lean into joy. even if we were lost at sea, we could use the north star to guide us back home. discover what brings light to your life and invite it to guide you. do more of what lights you up and helps you shine brighter. sometimes we must slow down and allow for this to come to us, but sometimes we must make the choice to seek it out. either way, the timing is right. we may follow the same path in circles many many times losing ourselves and our direction completely before we finally see that we must go a different way to find what we are working towards. no time was wasted. experience was gained. and we can focus on where we are headed now with a deeper conviction. the old path and darkness is behind us. we are being pulled by the tides and now is the time to move towards the light. let yourself be guided by this star, by this hope. let yourself be inspired and awakened. allow for growth and healing. trust in all that is.
