The Star XVII

I figured we could journey through the tarot together. Which I am hoping will help me understand the cards more. I thought, for today, I would start with my favorite card.
The Star card is my favorite of all the Major Arcana. Something about it's promise of faith and hope always makes me feel at ease. The Star offers a vision of tomorrow but it is not concrete. You still have to put in your energy and effort. It's not a fast moving card either. It is on that requires you to keep faith even if you don't see changes or help occurring. This is of course just the tip of the iceberg on meaning. The Star could mean something else entirely to you.
As you can see by the pic the Star is depicted in a variety of ways. It usually features a young woman with an urn or two; sometimes there is water in the image. Often times, several stars are depicted in the evening sky. As you know this can vary from deck to deck.
Next time we will start at the beginning with The Fool.
