The Sun is among the brightest cards of the deck and indicates much achievement, success, optimism, and contentment in a broad sense. It brings happiness in all areas, brightens all prospects, and overcomes any negativity. It trumps most negative cards completely, and significantly lessens the intensity of the more aggressive ones like the Scythe and Whip. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel and the end of difficulties. It delivers welcome relief after any struggle. Its blessings are great and their extent is often unexpected.
IN THE PORTRAIT & GRAND TABLEAU
On the first or central card of the nine-card portrait, the Sun tells of wish-fulfillment and contentment, and answers a query with a clear and positive ‘yes’. Its advice is to keep our focus on the positive even if things don’t appear to be promising just yet.
In the Grand Tableau, the Sun brings happiness whether near or far from the significator. Its prospects brighten the closer it is, and dampen the farther it is, but it’s always positive and overturns negative cards nearby. Additionally, when the Sun is to the right of negative cards, it can be taken to mean that an end to struggle is at hand, whereas when it’s to their left, it can mean that difficulties come after a period of happiness.
The Sun asks us to be optimistic and express gratitude. We can leave worries behind and trust that the path ahead is clear. We can relax and bask in our successes. We’re entitled to tap ourselves on the back and appreciate how far we’ve come and how much we’ve achieved.
