The Star Symbolism in Raider Waite Tarot Deck
A star is a map of hope, wisdom and understanding of the higher interconnections of everything. She points out that we are currently doing or planning things whose results will only appear in the very distant future, but that is why we may not be fully aware of what we are doing. Only in hindsight will it become clear to us what significant decisions we made then (today), under the sign of the Arcana of the Star. And, as a seed needs time to germinate and become a plant, so the Star does not manifest its fruitful effect right away. In the traditional Tarot, the Star in most cases was considered one of the three guardian angels who promised a favorable outcome for any conceived business.
The seventeenth card of the Major ARCANA is called STAR and depicts a girl sitting on the shore (her body position resembles a swastika). She has two vessels in her hands; she pours the contents of one of them onto the ground, the other back into the sea. Over the girl’s head there are eight stars, the largest of which is Sirius, and the rest are the seven sacred planets of the ancients. There are suggestions that a young woman symbolizes Isis, filling the Nile with water. (During this period, the Dog Star appeared in the Egyptian sky.) Isis’ nudity says that nature has not yet clothed its green robes until the rise of the Nile, the waters of which give life to plants. Bush and birds (or butterfly) mean growth and rebirth, accompanied by the rise of river water.
This card corresponds to the altruistic sign of Aquarius pouring two streams of water onto the Earth: dead water of consciousness and living water of the spirit.
The figure of TARO depicts a woman watering a desert, from the moist soil of which “blooming nature” grows. A seven-pointed star above a woman is a symbol of the seven major planets into which God dissolved in space was embodied in order to create a new life.
The seven-pointed “star of magicians” symbolizes the universality of the human psyche, and the butterfly sitting on the flower symbolizes the renewal of the human soul. (Sometimes the STAR is portrayed as eight-pointed and then serves simply as a symbol of the Venus star.)
The world is created every moment, and we humans are its creators. The immortal God, having created the world, disappears in it, but at the birth of human offspring a process similar to the creation of the world takes place. Plants appear on the dead soil of the planets, giving birth to air-spirit, which then, resonating in time with the vibrations of space, becomes the living soul of animals. And then the animals, gaining the dead mind of matter, become people and begin to destroy this world, in order to someday start the evolution again. This is how history goes on in time, but at the same time, the same process takes place at every moment and in every person.
The dead water of Aquarius is the creation of forms of matter (Saturn), and living water is irrigation, by their spirit (Uranus), which gives birth to life in matter. The “STAR” cynarot itself connects Venus and the Moon, eternal life and an immortal soul. In traditional interpretations, the Seventeenth TARO card is a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem, which announced the coming of the Savior into the world.
The seventeenth ARKAN calls for surrender to the instant, contemplation of the spiritual world; to fix your eyes on the perfection of the cosmos. This is renewal and rebirth. Arcana STAR symbolizes the revival and life-giving forces of nature. The number 17 means a new hope: if you count, starting with the full moon, then on the seventeenth night, after moonless nights, the thin sickle of the young moon reappears. STAR also gives hope, justified or false,
distortion of reality, carelessness, not worried about thoughts about the future.
Life is not only lived, but also passes in dreams, dreams, therefore, “STAR” is both an unconscious thirst for life, and contemplation of higher interconnections, and unknowable longing, coupled with complete irresponsibility.
