Meaning Of The Sun
Navigating The Sun’s Meaning Through Its Perspective
The card of the Sun, a card that carries all the energy of this star, absolutely vital, source of prosperity and growth, of new life, of heat, of light, of clarity and transparency. In itself, it is one of the arcana of the tarot that brings a benevolent, enlightened and inspired vision but at the same time, this enlightenment comes to indicate to us the possible difficulties in a given period of our life. Compared to the Moon, the Sun takes up more space on the surface of the card. The Moon worked more quietly, but the Sun explodes in all its brightness. Some linear rays emanate from the Sun, others meandering. Below him, sunflowers, which are the earthly symbol of the Sun, to which they always turn their heads during the day, move with him, abandoning themselves when it sets and then rise again with him at the new dawn. A wall in front of which stands a white horse ridden by a putto, an asexual child, wearing a crown and holding a large banner.

The Sun Reversed meaning:
The overturning of the card overturns all its positivity: where there was clarity, there is now darkness, where there was harmony, quarrels and misunderstandings. Generosity has turned into selfishness, the joy of living into pessimistic restlessness. Above all, the reign of the word is penalized, marked by the lack of harmony, communication difficulties, and breaking agreements. The consultant is going through a difficult time, but, instead of accepting help and advice, they take refuge in disdainful loneliness. Hidden truths, lies, misunderstandings, and waste, dictated by the desire to appear what one is not. The sunlight, distorted by the overturning, becomes a blunder, a simulation of only apparent happiness. Lack of sincerity and clarity, inconclusiveness, hazy ideals, uncertain future. Pessimistic view of life, strong inconclusiveness, bad luck, adversity, inconvenience. Deep misunderstandings of the opposite sex. Splitting between one’s masculine and feminine polarities, therefore irritation and non-acceptance of the emotional or intellectual part, disharmony, anxiety, and conflicts.
