Aquarius Tarot Card

The Star—the seventeenth card in the Major Arcana—is the tarot card most associated with hope, optimism, and dreams. Every Star card usually depicts a feminine figure pouring water into a stream and on the ground with pitchers in each hand. Above her, a giant star hovers over her head, among seven other smaller stars.

With this imagery, it’s immediately clear the woman with the pitchers is meant to represent Aquarius’ personal mascot: the Water Bearer.

In a sense, the dreaming Star card represents Aquarius’ idealistic-yet-grounded grasp on humanity. It also warns Aquarius of their tendency to get lost in the pursuit for a dream—and instead to keep a level, more attuned attitude.
