The Sun ~ Shine Your Light!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is The Sun, the brightest and most optimistic card of the deck. The Sun represents: Rebirth, joy creativity and success!
In astrology, the sun is the center of our solar system, and all planets orbit around it. Through The Sun card we connect to the need to shine, the desire to be seen, to express one’s own unique self, one’s light. The Sun is a symbol for our life force—the divine spark of self—our true essence. When self-expression comes from a place of centered-ness and well-being, it is truly a magnificent sight to behold. It becomes sheer joy—the freedom and exhilaration of expressing oneself, without concern about what others may think or how we may be received.
The energy of The Sun is transformative. In alchemy, the sun (or sulfur) is an important ingredient in the symbolic process of transforming lead into gold. The heat of the sun ignites without us a positive force, a purifying influence that can turn the most base of matter into something precious and beautiful.
If there is a challenge to the Sun, then it is a happy one: adjusting to enjoyment and taking pleasure in your newfound success! We live in a complicated world and today’s society has become acclimated to an unhealthy diet of worry and stress. It is easy to caught up in all the hustle and bustle of life, the pressure to be busy, hurry, get ahead and solve all your problems. The message of The Sun is a simple one: Don’t worry, be happy!
Sun Mantra: Everyday in everyway, my life gets better and better!
Wishing a bright and successful week!
