Reversed Star Card

The meaning of the star tarot card is opposite when the star tarot is reversed, in place of hope there is despair in place of faith there is depression and distortion. Negative thoughts are overwhelming you in place of encouragement and hope. You find yourself dwelling on all the negativity life has thrown your way instead of counting your blessings and moving on.

The negative environment may make you feel defeated and eventually succumb to depression and low self esteem. At this point in life it is important to have good mental stability to identify the reason behind all the negativity and feeling of hopelessness in your life. By doing so, you will be able to look for remedies that will help you move past these issues so that you are able to focus your attention on other important things in your life that deserve the attention.

The reversed star tarot reading also indicates lack of motivation in life and you gradually start feeling unattached to the things in life that once made you feel hopeful and inspired. Life seems overwhelming by the day to day routines that once made sense to you and gave you a self drive that gave your life purpose.

The simple components in your life such as work, hobbies and relationships that enriched you and gave and made you self fulfilled now feel distant and disengaged almost meaningless. This tarot card is particularly relevant when one wants to go on another career path; the career that you once loved so much now feels routine and boring. This card is often a sign that steers you on another path other than the normal comfort that you were once so well accustomed to.

The reversed star tarot acts as a sign of assurance that you are still on the right path and on a path intended for you. It can also sometimes indicate that you need to leave that path and take on yet another to be self enriched and self fulfilled as you once were. The card indicates feeling of negativity in your life but also contrary to the despair one should focus on the message of the tower reading (upright position of the star tarot card) where you need to learn on how to accept the setbacks but not dwell on them.

You need to realize that you needed the setbacks on your path to self realization so that you will not take the little things in life for granted. AS the tower message indicated personal transformation, believing that these setbacks were set on the path as a part of your transformation will help you not succumb to feelings of despair and hopelessness.

You need to believe that the universe is simply molding you to become a stronger and no doubt a better person by you going through a hard trial. At the end of the day your faith will be stronger and you will have more sound mind and awakening once the dust settles. The reverse card in most cases indicates a test of faith in your spiritual journey and how one will accept any negativity that is introduced at this point in life. Learning to accept trials and setbacks as part of life and as an opportunity to grow will in the end work on your advantage.

As the tower reading indicated a spirit of giving and generosity, sharing past experiences and struggles with others who are going through the same difficulty will be easy for you. Giving hope and encouragement to the helpless will be a way of you indulging in the spirit of generosity after having walked the same path before and made it through with a renewed spirit and a sense of purpose to life.
