The meaning of The Star Tarot card is ‘hope.’ You can expect to see signs of promise in your current situation. If you’ve been considering giving up on your dreams or love life, don’t! You will get results. Your Tarot cards are telling you that you should wait it out just a little longer.
The Star General Tarot Card Meaning
The Star can sometimes predict your dreams and wishes coming true. You will eventually get what you want, but not necessarily what you expect. Nonetheless, you will get what’s best for you. The Star is a reminder that destiny is always at play and all will work out in the end.
The Star – My Thoughts
“Like The High Priestess, The Star is another favourite of Tarot card readers. I personally love this card!” – Lisa
There is hope that you will achieve your deepest desires. If you desire a successful business or marriage, with hard work, you will get all that you wish for and more. The message of The Star is to be patient, and everything will eventually fall into place.
It is more desirable when The Star appears in the future than in the present. If it pops up in the present, this means you have the gifts you need to achieve great things, but that you still have to put the work in! Prospects are bright. The surrounding cards will tell if you will put all your God-given talents and intelligence to good use.
Another conventional interpretation of The Star is that it’s a Tarot card of healing. Whether you’re trying to heal emotionally or physically, that time is coming upon you.
The Star is a Tarot card that’s much loved by mystics. Many diviners interpret The Star as a symbol of the influence that stars have on our daily lives. In some cases, The Star may be advice. You need to devote yourself to astrology and be mindful of what’s happening in the stars. Read your daily horoscopes, and don’t be so quick to brush off the effects of Mercury Retrograde!
The Star Love Tarot Meaning
For love readings, the future looks promising when The Star appears in your Tarot readings, especially if you’re single. Are you waiting on your soulmate? Don’t worry; they’re just around the corner.
Sometimes, The Star can mean that you will fall in love with someone who’s different from your usual type. While you won’t expect to love your opposite, in some cases, opposites do attract.
For already-established relationships, The Star is also a good sign. It means that everything is going your way, so don’t stress too much about the future of the relationship. All seems rosy for now.
Unfortunately, it’s rather common to see The Star in a negative spread position of a love reading. If this is the case, The Star means that you’re too hopeful. Your relationship cannot survive on positive thinking alone, and you cannot wish someone into changing. Love your partner for what they are, not what you want them to be.

The Star Feelings Tarot Meaning
Curious about how a potential partner feels above you? Don’t worry; your prospects look good. The Star means that they’ve noticed you and given you a second glance. If you’ve already been in contact, The Star says their feelings are favorable toward you. It’s likely that a future together will happen.
The Star Career & Business Tarot Meaning
You’re in luck when you receive The Star for a Tarot reading on a business or career matter. Move forward with your plans, especially if you’re in a creative industry.
The only thing I would warn against is bragging about your achievements. Pre-Rider-Waite, one of the meanings of The Star was that it predicted theft. I would be careful not to share too many details about your success with other people. Be cautious regarding what you post to social media. You can be a public figure without divulging sensitive information.
The Star also predicts that you will land in your dream career. Are you coveting a particular job role? The position is practically yours. You’ve got this in the bag.
If you’re currently lost on your life’s purpose, The Star is telling you that eventually, all will fall into place. Ask the universe and spirits for signs as to which direction you should take. You will end up in an unexpected place, but it’ll prove to be just what you need.
The Star Future Tarot Meaning
The Star will land in the future position of a Tarot reading when the outcome is hopeful. As long as you remain optimistic, there’s a chance you’re going to manifest the future you want; this is especially true if you have a card in the present that indicates hard work or thoughtful planning (such as the Seven of Pentacles).
In most Tarot readings, The Star can have a different meaning. It’s very common for The Star to represent you obtaining the future you want, but not in the way in which you expect to have it. Not everything will go to plan all the time, but that’s not to say you’re not going to get the things you want. Keep following your dreams.
Yes or No with The Star
General – The Star is usually a yes, although you may not get what you want in the way you expect. In any event, you will get what you need.
Do they like me? – Yes, this person likes you. If they have not yet met you, they will like you in the future.
Am I pregnant? – I would not read The Star as a card that indicates pregnancy, but there is hope for pregnancy in the future.
Is this relationship going to last? – The Star does not promise whether or not your relationship will last, but the future looks good.
Does the future of this look promising? – Yes, the future appears hopeful.
Am I going to reconcile with my ex? – Yes, there is a chance that your ex will return.
The Star as a Negative, Weakness, or Obstacle
When The Star appears in a negative, weakness, or obstacle Tarot spread position, I would divert to the historical meaning of The Star (in pre-Rider-Waite times, The Star could predict theft). There will be people around you who are jealous of your abilities and achievements. Remain vigilant – they may be waiting to knock you off your pedestal. However, this meaning is rare, and The Star does not usually predict travesties.
The Star can also appear as an obstacle when you’re too hopeful. You’re unrealistic about the future; I would go as far as to say that you’re kidding yourself and seeing things that aren’t there. You must see your situation for what it truly is, not what you want it to be.
The Star as a Positive, Strength, or Advantage
The Star appears in a positive, strength, or advantage Tarot spread position when you’re optimistic about the future. Because you have the mindset of someone who’s going to succeed, your chances of actually doing so are rather good.
The Star can also mean that the ‘stars’ are on your side. Everything is aligning nicely for you, even if you don’t think so currently. The divine has a plan for you and all is unfolding as it should.
Closing Thoughts on The Star Tarot Card Meaning
That’s all for The Star’s Tarot meaning! Keep in mind that sometimes The Star can predict wishes fulfilled, but others it can just represent wishes you have made.
Have you received The Star in your Tarot reading? Do you resonate more with the ‘wishes fulfilled’ meaning or the ‘wishes made’ meaning? Feel free to share with me in the comments!
