Enlightenment, vitality, radiance, energy, joy, success
“The Sun represents the source of life itself, it also symbolizes happiness, joy, energy, optimism, accomplishment, the light after a dark night. The mermaid children playing joyfully in the foreground represent the happiness of our true self. They represent the innocence and purity of childhood. The orange ribbon shows that control has passed from the conscious to the subconscious. The Sun’s rays represent action and vibration, sources of all life on earth. The flowers in the background represent life and the fruitfulness of the spirit under the nourishment of the Sun. There are four sunflowers, representing the four elements. The Sun card is a sign that you are likely to find yourself feeling more free than you ever have.”
Against a clear, blue sky, two young merfolk bask under a large statue, which rises out of a strong, brick wall. The status doesn’t cast any shade – its solar face smiles down upon the children, with a halo of wavy hair and straight rays shining out. They are naked and innocent, open as only children can be, and they frolic at the top of the water, within the seafoam – both indicating that purity. From behind the wall, four sunflowers watch over the children, symbols of the joy and abundance granted by the Sun.
This card heralds success and joy. You have toiled and suffered, and come out the other side smiling. Your life is full of positives, and your warm attitude, confidence and vibrancy attract people and success to you like moths to a flame.
