Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - (17) The Star Reversed

The Star Reversed
Introduction:  When the Star reversed appears, you are likely to find yourself feeling rather inspired. In many ways this card indicates the calm after the storm, whether upright or reversed. In reversal, you should still be feeling more hopeful about the future, and more confident that your needs - whether these are emotional or financial needs or both - will be met. You will also find that you have good reason to feel optimistic and that your prospects are bright.

General: The Star reversed is still a good omen. Look hard at what you are feeling and discern whether, if you looked a little deeper, you could find reasons to be more optimistic and helpful. When this card appears in reverse, often we are tending to look on the darker side. Lift up your eyes! If you are drawing breath, there is always something you can be thankful for.

Work: When you draw the Star reversed, it indicated that you may have a lot of powerfully positive opportunities in front of you which you are not seeing. Think about not only how to make the best of the situation you are in now, but also about your ideal situation, e.g. where you want to be work-wise five years from now. Picture your “perfect” scenario, then take steps to make it happen.

Love: When reversed, the Star still bodes very well for love relationships, especially existing love relationships. However, there may be a stumbling block on one or both sides which will need to be resolved before the really excellent possibilities for the relationship can come shining through. Think about what the blocks might be on your side (the only side you can truly change) and work through them. If you are single and feel that you’re ready for love, again, consider what may be standing in the way of attracting the relationship you want. Is it your self esteem - too low, or too high, bordering on arrogance? First think that through, work on it, then get out and mingle. A new relationship could happen soon. But first you need to examine and/or eliminate any blocks.


Finances: In general this is still a positive omen when reversed, but as with the other contexts, it is very important that you consider what, if any changes, may need to be made in order for you to reach your goals. You may discover that you are already on the right track, but also check to see if your goals have changed since you originally made your plans. If you don’t have a financial plan, make one!

Health: Even when The Star appears reversed, this should be a very good time, health wise. If you are waiting on test results of some kind, they are likely to be very good results. You'll be calm, and inspired. Trust in your body’s strength and wisdom.

Spirituality: You are so in touch with your spirituality now that this is a great time for you to reach out to others, and to share your wisdom and your joy. Your efforts to do so will be repaid many times over. Even reversed, the numerological translation of The Star equates to the concept of “strength.” Your spirit is coming through strongly when this card appears; trust yourself.
