Aquarius season: The Star XVII

It’s Aquarius season. Happy birthday air sign Aquarius!

So what about those Aquarians? They are born between January 20 and February 18 are ruled by the planet Uranus (and Saturn), and are associated with the element air. The Tarot card that corresponds to Aquarius is The Star XVII. Two days before Aquarius season arrived, the Star tarot card came out for me, and then it stalked me. 😀

Description of the Star XVII card

The Star XVII card follows the Tower XVI, a card that indicates major upheaval, destruction, endings.

When the Star XVII shows up in a card reading, it points to new, better things coming soon. Look at some of the symbolism in the card:

  • Naked woman – vulnerable and pure
  • One foot on ground – practical abilities, common sense
  • Other foot in small pool of water – intuition, inner resources, listening to her inner voice
  • Bowl in left hand – subconscious
  • Bowl in right hand – conscious
  • Liquid poured from left bowl – into water, nourishing earth and cycle of fertility
  • Liquid poured from right bowl – onto dry earth in five streams, representing the five senses


The Star card is like a little voice inside your head saying “everything is going to be alright”.

It suggests deeper understanding of yourself and others, mental and emotional stability and personal growth. Stars in the sky allow us to dream, which is another indicator of positivity. The expression “reach for the stars” comes to mind, meaning ‘trust yourself and believe that anything is possible‘.

The Star XVII card tells you that your transformation from old and no longer suiting you, to new and reinventing is happening. Don’t let yourself get held back by limiting beliefs or sucked into excuses. The time is now to move forward and allow yourself to live your authentic self.

For me, the Star XVII card made several more appearances during my shuffling. And, the message has proven true; things have definitely turned a corner since February arrived. January was a miserable month and the last two weeks had me in a deep, dark depression, but... Things are looking up now. 


The colour assigned to Aquarius is blue. I have lots and lots of blue beads and have designed many blue creations with them for my etsy shop. These two are listed, more to come:

  1. I’m Aquarius rising, so it’s my practical side to my “dreamy” Piscean Sun 😉 I haven’t even thought about pulling my deck of cards out. 🙃 I’m still getting thru each day as best as I can.

    Still don’t have Pump meds, but I have a lead… saw a Rheumatologist today, and he says I do NOT have Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA), which is good, but I do have some fluid in/on my knees🤷🏼‍♀️ He prescribed a super NSAID for inflammation that’s better than taking hand fulls of ibuprofen. I still have fatigue and weakness, with shortness of breath when I walk too far, or am up too long. Nobody can figure out why🙄🤦🏼‍♀️🤯 Seeing my Primary again in a couple weeks. I think I might just be a Random Mutant😂😂😂😂

    I’m glad Feb is working out better for you than Jan! It’s nice to read good news!
