The light shines on to something previously hidden; change is effected; decisions appear on the horizon.
But of course we would have The Sun after it featured in this week’s tarot article! Its rays are still reaching across the days and illuminating this weekend’s tarot reading. How beautifully apt.
This is change — change after the light has been shed on something, after it has emerged from the shadows into clarity, finally identified if not yet fully understood.
As the article on The Sun and its accompanying comments suggested, The Sun is never anything but a positive card. If we don’t fully identify with it when it is drawn for us in a reading, it is because we have in some way blinded ourselves to its influence in our lives. We might be looking the other way, willing some other source to bring us light when it is so obviously shining on us from another angle. We might have chosen, consciously or not, to block it from our awareness. It is, nevertheless, there, inviting us to come to it as the child on the back of the horse welcomes us into the picture with open arms.
We might even be the horse itself: head bowed, monochrome, perhaps so preoccupied or introspective that we cannot see that the very thing that offers us light and colour — the full spectrum — is, literally, right on top of us. That, I feel, is a message to bear in mind strongly over the next few days. Where do we have immediate access to joy, so astonishingly close and yet we choose not to take it up on its offer to us? The Sun, to me, feels like a visual form of extroversion — the answer lying outside of us, or at least outside of the inner circles that we tend to travel in. “Look around you! Look around! Just what is it that you’re not seeing?”, is its exhortation to us.
