Tarot: The Sun

Two young kids are playing in a plumeria tree, surrounded by leaves and blossoms. The boy is swinging upside down from a branch and the androgynous-looking girl is perched in a split in the trunk. The sky is warm burnished yellow and the shape of the sun is outlined in red ochre. In the distance, through the haze, is a forest or jungle on the side of a volcano.

The Sun card is like the Garden of Eden in reverse: the innocence that lies at the end of the adventure. In the story of the Major Arcana, the Fool has come through his troubles and confusion and found his way into a flowering garden where he's invited by a little boy to come play. When he takes the boy's hand, he realizes that the boy is a part of his own nature, the part which isn't held back by adult burdens. It's about rebirth and freedom, joy and creativity, and it implies connectedness to the environment and all the things that are waiting there to be discovered.

The person who draws the Sun card might be ready to look at things in a new light. Carrying the wisdom of their latest journey, they can bring a fresh perspective to whatever they set out to do.
