Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:
XVII. The Star
The Star culminates its meaning with meditation and revelation. You have given deep thought to and thoroughly gazed at your naked soul, and have earned the ability to truly see yourself; you’ve earned purity through self-truth. The surface of your life ripples with the impulses of your meditative mind and inspiration will soon crystallize. As the symbol for the radiant energy of the Universe, the Star gives light to your inner fire and knowing how to use it.
upright: inner-knowledge; revelation through meditation; the naked soul
