Meditations on the Sun (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"uranus square sun" The first stage is shock.

This is the same for all life transitions, including being born. Then you enter stage two, the Sun stage. You’re adjusting. You know where you are.

Stage two, the Sun stage, is when you have to find some light in the matter, no matter how small, how measly its blaze. Sometimes its all you have.

Today in the Fire class (the astrology class I’ve been teaching for the last two weeks) one of the participants wanted me to repost my Ten Keys of Fire — the Fire of Courage and the Fire of Faith, to name just two — and I was reminded of where I hoped to stay, for the moment: a medium-low flame. Steady. Dial up if I need. Dial down if I need. But not to let the fire go out.

Figures that our next Tarot card up for meditation is The Sun. Everyone is happy to see the Sun. Here are some key phrases:

-show the world who you are
-shine a light
-vitality
-good health
-healthy ego
-success
-believe in yourself
-you’re the one to watch
-glory
-great job!
-no more secrets, truth comes out, now you know, no mystery here, all is CLEAR
-achievement
-power
-acclaim
-joy
-birth
-happy happy happy

In the Rider Waite version of the card, we see a huge yellow sun, preening sunflowers, and a buck-naked child on a white horse with arms open wide as if to say:  HERE I AM.

The Sun card is such an announcement to all who see it:  you are here. You have arrived.

It's windy. He's rushing. He's rushing. It's windy. Even the clouds are edgy, jagged edges. Horse in a hurry, aggressive sword, tilted. Trees tilted. It's all a bit… skewed for the Knight of Swords.

Today's Tarot: The Hanged Man
Are you or are you not a sacrifice? I just drew the Hanged Man for someone and went to Google some images for her and saw a Charlie Brown Hanged Man and he looked so damn unhappy but the message I was delivering to her was not an unhappy one but "don't struggle against the ropes" which reminded o

Today's Tarot: The Tower!
The Tower isn't always bad. I used to think the Tower was always bad. I would often see it for BAD -- for evictions and my best friend's cancer and another eviction and BAD. But when I saw it today for a client who I've worked with quite a bit over the years, I KNEW it was not bad. I knew.  See,

Mourn if you must, mourn. But don't get it on me, says the King of Cups. I've got a job to do. I'm busy. Can't you see? I am busy curtailing and corralling the emotional life of MY Kingdom and MY Cup
