☆♥*♥☆ The Star~17~Aquarius ☆♥*♥☆

by Lorraine Valente

The Star~17 XVII~Symbolic of Aquarius

In the Rider Waite version, the body of a naked woman holding an urn in each hand is shown. One urn pours water onto the land (material world) while the other urn is poured into a pool of water (spirituality). One of her feet is planted firmly on the ground while the other grazing the surface of the pool. Her nakedness symbolizes acceptance of her self, while the pouring of water symbolizes the quest for balancing both spiritual and material needs.

Card 17 reduced, equals the number 8. Eight is the number of power and authority signifying success and material fortune. Above her head are 8 stars; 7 smaller stars and one large bright star in the center. Stars symbolize the guiding light within; an intuitive understanding that we're protected “Under the Stars”. There's a need to see the light within ourselves and to be “enlightened”. So that this occurs, let go of inhibitions (nakedness) and open yourself up to your own truth.  Shine your light!

Negatively, and each tarot cards offers both a positive and negative polarity influence, The Star reversed is interpreted as shutting off spirituality or love for another. Perhaps too much self-love becomes a narcissistic focus.  It may be a person always searching or looking towards the distant Star or a long-lost or idealistic love. Then the need to stop dreaming and “manifest” the desired reality is the message. We do this by permitting the “natural” flow of emotions to thaw, rather than having them freeze up. Sometimes emotions are frozen as a defense mechanism, so that no one will hurt us.

The Symbol of “The Star” may appear in a reading during a time when spiritual or emotional healing is necessary and to see the purity and good under the light of the shining stars above. As above, so below…the stars above mirror the light within all.
