Could not be more perfect to pull The Sun for the one-card daily tarot on Sun-Day…
Where the Moon may portray a subtle, undercurrent of influence, there is no subtlety with the Sun Tarot card. The sun is pervasive in its power, blazing with its message of vitality, and its presence in our lives equates to life-giving energy.
The Sun is inevitable. We can always count on it to rise each morning. Even if we’ve had the most dark and dispairing night we are able to derive confidence that this too shall pass when we see the sun lifting over the horizon.
Cultures have worshipped the sun over the ages because it gives life. It allows crops to grow, it allows productivity during the day, and it illumines the world so that we may see things clearly without the symbolic undertones of darkness overshadowing our judgment.
When we pull the Sun card in a reading it is a very good sign. It means we’ve “struck gold.” We’ve come to the other side of a long period of grief, mourning, or confusion. We’ve come to a point of clarity and understanding. We’re seeing that promotion in our jobs. We’re relocating to the house and neighborhood in which we’ve always wanted to live. We’re receiving that opportunity that we’ve been dreaming about for such a long time.
Other deck renditions depict a nude child riding a white horse on the Sun card. This is a symbol of freedom from doubt and fear. The horse represents mobility in a new direction which we are able to do because of the clarity and brilliance the sun (new understanding) shines upon our lives. The child is also a symbol new beginnings and total trust that our way is always illuminated by the sun-energy, and we have no need to fear the darkness.
This is a break through card. So often we go through the motions of our lives, wondering if we’ll come out of the dark, curious if all our hard work is ever going to pay off. The Sun card is a clear message, that yes, indeed the proverbial flowers in the garden of life that we’ve painstakingly cared for are about to come in full bloom. When the vibrancy of the Sun card shines in a reading, everything is coming up roses.
