The Star tarot card is the seventeenth card in the tarot deck.

Card Description:

In the top center of the card is a large 8 pointed yellow star, hanging in
the dark night sky. There are 6 smaller 8 pointed white stars forming a
semi-circle around the main star. Another small star is on the left of the
card, below the semi-circle.

A naked woman is under the yellow star. She has long blond hair. She is
kneeling, on one knee on green grass. In front of her is a blue pool. The
woman is bent at the waist. Her left knee is on the grass, her right leg is
extended before her, bent at the knee, and her right foot appears to be
resting on the surface of the water. We see the left side of her face,
staring down. In her right hand she holds an orange pitcher and is pouring
water into the pool, forming circles on the surface of the water. Her left
arm is extended behind her. Her left hand holds another orange water pitcher
and she is pouring water from this one onto the grass. The water forms small
rivers that run in various directions. One of them runs to the left, into
the pool.

Green grass covers the ground, small pink flowers are growing scattered. In
the background, on the right of the card, behind the woman, is a tree. An
out of proportion brown bird sits on the top. He is nearly as large as the
tree. In the distance, to the left, is a shallow purple mountain range.
