MAJOR ARCANA NUMBER 19
Corresponding Astrological Sign: Leo
Only the World card of the tarot deck can match the blessings that come with the Sun. While it certainly doesn’t promise a life path without some bumps in the road, the Sun indicates that all will be well. Success will be yours. This card indicates that people appreciate the joy and the brightness you bring to their lives. At this time you are feeling confident and achieving your goals is apparent. The Sun is our cosmic nurturer. The Sun card may be bringing you the news you have been waiting for that the darkest hours are over. Things have a brighter outlook. You may even find yourself traveling to where the sun shines brightly. Life flourishes under its radiant beams. It provides the illumination necessary to find truths and light a path so you do not get lost. To stand in the rays of the Sun is to shine. To absorb its energy promotes growth, exceptional physical and mental health, and good fortune. You are enthusiastic and seem to have boundless energy. The Sun is empowering, elevating and fills those who bask in it with confidence and a sense of self-worth. The sun is invigorating. It also sends us a message to get back to the simpler things in life. You will truly find this liberating. It is also the time of epiphanies. To have the Sun anywhere in your personal cards is truly a gift.
In the reversed position, the Sun card can signify loneliness, a broken marriage or union, depression, lack of accomplishment and sadness. This card may be indicating that you have not been honest with yourself. Signs of frustration may be coming to the forefront. There is also a warning about making hasty commitments. This is a time to look at any offers that may be given to you from people who do not have your best interests at heart. Once these individuals are exposed, you might want to give up on future dealings or take a longer time to investigate further. Disappointment and frustration at work and at home may be coming to a head. Be prepared to deal with some loneliness due to disenchantment in a business venture or disillusionment in a relationship. Be careful not to celebrate anything too early — wait until you have all the details. The Sun card can represent hope. Do not let your negative internal emotions and your solitude block out the sunshine.
