The Sun Major Arcana Tarot Card XVIIII

The Sun XVIIII Meaning

Traditionally, The Sun relates to an encouraging and supportive energy that helps us grow, and gives us great health, vitality and a beautiful smile that shines from within.  Think of the actual Sun, and how it helps everything on Earth grow, and you get some idea of what the Tarot card means.

In addition to the wonderful growth potential, The Sun lights up the right path for us to walk down.  Again, much like the actual Sun does, when we have a well lit road in front of us, we have no doubts about how to navigate it.

Furthermore, The Sun illuminates the whole picture for us and can help us see, at least in our minds, where we are headed and what the end destination will be like.

Finally, The Sun naturally corresponds to the 5th house in astrology, which is ruled by The Sun, and that brings matters about children, love, romance and creativity to the fore.

Decision Making Time

There are two celestial bodies prominent in the Major Arcana of the Tarot – The Moon and The Sun.  With The Moon you have a foggy atmosphere around you, with barely enough light to see where you’re going.  There’s a sense of uncertainty and possibly deception in your camp.

When The Sun is seen all that changes for the better.  Whatever you were uncertain about is now made clear.  Any possible intrigue surrounding you is made obvious and dissolves in the bright sunshine.  You know who loves you, who your true friends are, and you bond with family more than ever.

In a reading, seeing The Sun means that if you’ve been sitting on a fence about anything, now is the time to follow your instincts and go for it.  Look for a clear marker in front of you.  Is there something very good that’s happened?  Something that looks like a stroke of luck?  If so you need to take action on it and don’t let this opportunity pass by.

Spiritual Message

  •  The  Sun is a beautiful and significant indication that success is just around the corner.
  • One of the aspects of The Sun is that it attracts attention and your family’s style of living will look very inviting to those around you – so don’t be surprised if you get inspired by all the compliments to make plans for parties, cookouts and hosting lots of family-oriented functions.
  • Make plans for gathering your family together.  Your family should be in high spirits all the way around.  There should be a willingness to work together and to take excellent care of each other, of your home, and of enjoying life as a happy group of people.

The rest of the year starts right now.  Do what it takes to make it shine up like a new penny.  Fantastic!
