This is card number seventeen in the Rider Waite deck. It shows a woman bending down by a pond emptying jugs of water. One jug is being emptied carefully into the pond and the other is being poured carelessly onto the surrounding grass.
When we first look at this card we might wonder what possible meaning it could have for us in our lives, but look more closely.
The woman is naked and above her is a shining star. This is surrounded by multiple stars in a clear blue sky. The golden yellow star represents the shining light that is coming into your life. In fact it's so bright that all other stars pale by comparison.
You can draw inspiration from The Star. The water pouring from the jugs represents the pouring away of your troubles. The woman in the Star is totally at peace and at one with nature and her surroundings. This card indicates that you are coming to terms with a situation or that you are bringing about a successful and peaceful conclusion to a time of stress. You have made a start in this. Now carry the light of the Star with you and go forward with hope and inspiration.
There are times when all of us feel that we need some guidance in life, especially when we feel unsure about the path we're taking. A daily tarot card can often help you to see things a bit more clearly. There is no magic in this. What you are doing is drawing on your inner resources and strength. You are using your intuition and the illustration on the card to help you to see things in every possible light. I find that rather than relying on a computer to draw the daily card for me it's best to have an actual deck that I can draw a card from myself. The deck I'm using here is the Universal Rider Waite deck which is easily available online. Some of the auctions are shown below, or for more information visit our
