The Star – A Music and Tarot Discussion


Sometimes learning to read Tarot is a real struggle! I mean learning 22 major arcana card and 56 minor arcana cards can be daunting! Seriously, learning medical terminology was less work. Generally we learn things better when we can see or make connections. I have had a Tarot deck for 20 years now, and still struggle with some of the cards. As I have collected more decks, I’ve also found that the meanings can be expressed and interpreted in a multitude of ways. So begins my journey.

Music has been a major player in my life. Songs trigger emotions, transport us back to moments in time, and are basically the soundtrack to life! Why not connect each tarot card to a song? A few months ago I began doing just that. These posts have been evolving over time  I hope you will decide to join in on the conversation!

Just a special note: When writing these I consult a number of decks. Some are traditional Rider Waite system and some are not. My first Tarot, Legend The Arthurian Tarot, has Wands-Air and Swords-Fire. Honestly, this has always made more sense to me than the much more common associations of Wands-Fire and Swords-Air. So occasionally these other traits have influenced my choice.


The Star is a symbol of hope. A welcome sign in readings because it signals that all is not yet lost. You can still find a way. Things will get better. There is still a light in the darkness. Also a symbol of inspiration, The Star calls you to action. Begs you to chase after your dreams.

Counting Stars – One Republic

There are number of interpretations about what this song could mean. To me it is that we could be more, do more than we currently are. I believe the lyrics of this song reflect that there is still hope. That if you work hard you can make your dreams come true. Money will no longer matter and you can chase dreams instead. Also, how much more starlike can you get than counting them?

I see this life like a swinging vine,
Swing my heart across the line
In my face is flashing signs,
Seek it out and ye shall find

One Republic
