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.

On Seeing The Ten Of Wands
We were talking about NUMBERS today in the Tarot class. During the first week I had asked folks to list cards that vexed them and everyone, I think, listed a Major Arcana. Even the Star got a mention. I get it. Sometimes the happy dappy do cards can vex us. The World used to do that to me. And to

Tarot For The New Moon In Libra
I didn't know what to write about for the New Moon in Libra. It all felt old to me. Making me want to scream. Again the advice to set New Moon intentions.
