Every day holds new knowledge…
I started my day hearing about this: the meaning of the Sun tarot card… I may be into other woowoo stuff (as the experts jokingly call it) but tarot is not exactly in my calling 🙂 HOWEVER, I can’t deny the beauty and artistry used in representing human condition and emotion in these cards. Today as I was listening to HayHouse Radio a show on tarot readings came on, the caller got a Sun card, the expert explained the meaning… I had to google it 🙂 and found it fascinating!!
The Sun card represents a flowering of the inner self, a time when who you are inside yourself and who you are to the outside world become more closely aligned. In other words, the who that you are internally and the who you project into the world become more alike. You truly are who you are all the time.
The Sun symbolizes many things depending on how you look at it. The ancients saw the sun as the giver of life and light, and almost every polytheistic faith has a Sun God. It brings light and clarity after a period of darkness and confusion, and in this sense the Sun God is often a redeemer as well; a bringer of peace and good times after ordeals. Finally, the Sun is a symbol of steadfastness and reliability, for no matter how bleak your situation may seem, no matter how many problems you have, the Sun will still rise in the morning.
As a sign of reliability, there is nothing more powerful than the Sun, since no force on Earth (or anywhere else for that matter) can stop the Sun from rising in the morning. In a world of chaos, it is a still point of silence and calm, an assurance that there is some underlying order, some higher power that chooses to bless us and smile upon us each day. Even when clouds fill the sky the Sun is still there, waiting for an opportunity to break through the dark barrier and shine its light for us. Know that in every challenge there is an opportunity, and behind every cloud sits a sun waiting for its chance to be revealed to all.
In a reading the Sun can take on many meanings, though the most predominant one is that of success and completion. It can be a herald of joy, happiness, the birth of a child, a stable family, material prosperity or almost any other end that is positive – but above all it shows completion. One cycle is over and, before the next begins, there is a period of light and relaxation that you can and should properly enjoy. Success comes if you are confident and bold in the use of your creative energy. Glow with the vitality of the Sun whose light is umatched and whose power is absolute.
Such power and clarity are within everyone’s grasp, including yours, if you let the light of the Sun illuminate you. If there are areas of darkness lurking inside you, the Sun’s rays will expose them so you can integrate them into yourself. Fogs of confusion are burned away with the Sun’s fiery sword, and its flames drive away fear and all the terrors of the night. A seemingly hopeless situation will be hopeless no more once the Sun shines down upon the true path, the correct solution. When the Sun appears, let its power amaze and overwhelm you. But do not simply watch – reach up to grasp it, draw its power into yourself. The power of the Sun is true power indeed. @ TAROT CARD MEANINGS
