What it means when drawn…
In a romance reading: The Star card is usually a quite positive omen in all aspects, and romance is no different. In an established relationship, it can indicate that a couple is growing closer after a rough patch. It is a card of hope and inspiration, so it brings with it feelings of excitement and looking forward to the future together. The Star also brings a message of hope if you’re single and looking— but reminds you to listen to your intuition (which is spot-on at this time).
In a career reading: The Star also brings a major boost in self-esteem; we are realizing that we ARE capable, creative and resourceful contributors to society. This heralds well if the Querent is having difficulties adjusting to a new job or is going through conflict at work. For those seeking employment, The Star suggests you take some time to really think about where your talents lie. There is a theme of CREATIVITY and UNDISCOVERED TALENT that runs through this card— so you may want to look for opportunities to use your creative talents to help bring others joy.
In a spiritual reading: Spiritual transformation has happened. “As above, so below”. You are letting go of everything that isn’t conducive to your new sense of spirit. To fully embrace the energy of this card, there may be some things you are asked to let go of.
“The Star brings Liberation and Freedom after chains of The Devil and the shock of The Tower. The very fact that the woman is wearing no clothes symbolises that she no longer has anything to hide.” – http://teachmetarot.wordpress.com/part-iii-major-arcana/lesson-7/the-star-xvii-upright/
