When The Star shows up in a reading you may wonder what it means. The Star can refer to the positive things listed above. But notice how in the card, it is night time. That means, that this card can indicate going through a tough time, but one that is necessary to lead you on your path. It may not feel comfortable at the time, but when you look back at the situation you feel thankful that things happened that way because otherwise you would be in a worse situation.
