Number 17, The Star card.

With The Star card comes inspiration, and hope.
Here we see a Pixie sitting by a lake, pouring rejuvenating water over their hand and on to the Earth. The rune on the jug is Inguz, which means Fertility, Creation, Protection and Growth. The nourishing water makes the ground more fertile and grows beautiful flowers.
The Pixie has one leg dipped into the water, this represents spiritual abilities. The other leg crossed over represents practical abilities. The seven smaller stars that surround the largest star symbolize the seven chakras.
When we are blessed with The Star card, it brings with it great strength to carry on in life. You are gifted by the universe with great positivity and abundance.
To receive The Star card means that you have battled through many tasking challenges in life, and you're still going. At the time, maybe you didn't realize just how strong you are. As we look back on our past, we realize the strength it took to get through it all, and we appreciate the life lessons that came with them.

Upright: The Star card tells us that your faith and hope in love is strong. You've been healing from past wounds and are now slowly rebuilding your confidence. If you are currently struggling right now with a partner or close friend, perhaps now would be a good opportunity to schedule some time with your loved one.
If you are single, you're likely radiating positive energy. Use this time to get to know some new and interesting people! Nothing has to come from it, but it's always great to plant new seeds.

Reversed: The Star card in reverse tells us that your faith and confidence in love right now are jaded. Perhaps you're feeling unworthy of love. What do you think is troubling you right now? Are there any negative patterns? If you're expressing a negative view of love to others, that could cause people to turn away from you. We often attract what we put out to the universe.

Upright: If you currently have a job, things could be looking very well for you. You could maybe be moving up in your job, or things could just be going really smoothly for you.
If you are looking for a job, The Star card can bring with it new opportunities. Your hopes are high and you're feeling motivated.
If things have been relatively stressful and negative as of late, if you have a job or not, know that The Star card tells us that now is a time of healing and to continue having hope and faith that everything will work out.

Reversed: Thing at work may be stressful right now. You may be feeling less enthusiastic and maybe even pessimistic about work. It's okay, not everything can be smooth sailing. Practice self care and ask yourself what you feel would be best for you. Maybe a new job? A difficult conversation? Open your heart and mind and keep your eyes open to new opportunities and possibilities.
