The Sun

The Sun

The Sun shares accomplishment – union of your intelligence and your spontaneous wisdom – intuition.  The wisdom of a heart which contains no “doubt” and is void of the desire to control or dominate.  The knowledge that the “source” of your knowledge and power is not “you” – that the source influences you and fills you, but its origin is not in you.  You must remain silently concentrated so that this relationship can develop and gain intensity and clarity to become fully conscious.  Revelation moves and teaches, it guides you – it is the “gift” of believing without any support from without or within.

Continue to endeavor now to advance from the “understanding of intuition” to the use of it.  Regardless of your present circumstances, the adversity will be overcome – wholeness and harmony will prevail and there will be joy and happiness in your future.  Opportunity is in the offing, do not hesitate to move forward – go ahead, there will be many blessings – this is a time to be happy and give thanks.  Success lies ahead – growth of personal wealth as new ventures prosper.  You have come through the hardships and will be blessed with new beginnings and liberation.  Plan carefully for the future – obstacles can be easily overcome now – love and marriage will be very happy.

During periods of stress – your consciousness falls back to the “source” of its being.  Say “yes” to yourself and the life you lead – accept the unique individuality of your body, mind and spirit.  Begin to bridge your beliefs, fulfill your abilities and reconcile all parts of your self.  The result of consciously accepting life-giving beliefs is the recognition of the integrity of your own being – the joyful release after the test.  Bring your “inner” light into consciousness and you experience a bright mind, a warm heart, an active body and a fiery spirit.

Justice requires “action” in response to the knowledge gained about yourself.  The Hanged man teaches you to remain passive, for the Moon requires passive surrender since there is no way to control the visions rising with its influence.  The Sun is an active, energized state – by accepting the Moon’s fearful images you bring the energy outside of yourself and give all life radiance.  Everything becomes simple, joyous and physical as the light of the unconscious is brought into daily life and the conscious and unconscious are joined together.  Successful passage from the Tower gives you a childlike simplicity.  The transfer happens all at once – a blinding revelation of the Tower, the inner radiance of the Star and the acute fear of the Moon are all join in a single instant of transformation and the aftermath is joy – a sense of all life and all the world being filled with wondrous light.  Enlightenment bears the same characteristics in all people, it is an experience – not an idea.  You feel struck by a burst of light and suddenly the world is seen or felt as spiritual and eternal rather than a day to day existence of drudgery and confusion.  You feel totally alive with a childlike joy that most children never really know – for you have gone beyond your childish fear of darkness by traveling through it.

The Sun represents knowledge.  You feel a sense of wisdom, seeing everything with total clarity – clear and direct as you are “filled with the light of understanding.” You see everything as alive and holy, united through the light that fills all existence – unified and alive.  You experience a burst of freedom as you are liberated from the ordinary restricted consciousness to openness and freedom.  You feel a part of the whole rather than an isolated individual and you see the world in a new way.  You experience joy, happiness and great beauty as you experience optimism, energy and wonder.

Here is your nineteenth stop.  Things are bright and clear in the Physical/Material Plane.  The four aspects of the personality have been balanced and are healthy and functioning well.  Realization of physical and material goals.  Identification with the Earth, her products and offspring.  Harmony with Nature.  Productivity.  Preparedness.  Abundance.  Physical perfection.  Approaching the sense of atonement with the world/universe.  There is a growing awareness of God in all material things, and materiality takes on a very spiritual sense for you.  Life can seem to move in slow motion as you extract the nuances of pleasure from each minute you are awake.  Split personality limitations are left far behind.  The dispelling of fears, casting away of shadows.  The power of conscious awareness to dispel darkness and fear.  There is a physical urging toward even greater consciousness.  Your physical conditioning pushes you forward; there is momentum.  Your body is confident; you have faith in yourself.  Here we will see happiness.  Here there is victory.

    I hoped but didn’t truly expect to see a reply!
    Thank you very much for the time you took to read my question as well as the time you took to guide me in the right direction.

    It’s very easy for me to become anxious about reading, trying to get the right message and words to express what I feel, then second guessing myself…
    Reading your interpretations and your advice is good for me, you seem to know how to be still and listen.

    Thank you very much,

    Ruth, To try and determine a person’s future through the cards or any other means is like guessing a set of numbers and hoping you will win the lottery. The future changes second by second, moment by moment as you do or do not make decisions – this being over laid by the decisions or lack of decisions of all those involved in your life – which is also over laid by the decisions or lack of decisions of those in your space who are not involved with you at all but their choices or lack of them will also affect you.
    When you lay out the cards, you are not meant to apply the meaning of the entire card – but rather those sections of the card that provoke an emotional response from your subject. Each card literally has thousands of meanings. You as a reader, combine all the energy you receive from your subject at the moment of the reading and then through your wisdom and knowledge – assist her in moving her energy in a more healthy direction at that moment in time.
    You could pull the same card tomorrow and have a completely different meaning – because your subject’s emotional response will be completely different in the new space and time. You become aware of the overall meaning of the cards, but recognize that each one will be applied differently each and every time you read depending upon what message “spirit” is wanting you to share with your subject. You become sensitive to the messages from “spirit”, not the meaning of the cards.
    If I were to throw into the pot “my thoughts” on those cards – it would simply add more energy to your current state of confusion – does that make any sense? Just the fact that you are unsettled is a message from “spirit” – step back, let all of this go – ask for guidance and listen for the soft messages from your higher spirit – then trust that – hope this helps – Diana

    I appreciate your interpretation of this card, to be honest, I appreciate your website! I enjoy trying to interpret the cards through here, your approach is gentle as well as spiritual and honest, and so incredibly intuitive! it seems as though I feel like I can understand the cards from many angles through you, and best of all, I never feel that my experience here is negative one.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong to ask you, as I’m trying to interpret a relationship reading for my sister, she’s in a relationship and is lonely, has drifted off to like another man who also is in a relationship. The have nothing happening at this time between them.
    I’ve tried to do the cards for her, to see what the future will bring, and came to Crystal Reflections to reference two of the cards. Maybe you could help me? As I’m interpreting these two cards from here, maybe I’m reading this wrong?

    I’m dealing with the Sun clarified by the seven of swords, in the fifth position of the Celtic Cross.
    From your interpretation, The Sun, would experience the fifth position on a mental plain? If so, when clarified by the seven of swords – also a mental card, could this be interpreted as the the joy you are feeling or the freedom you are experiencing or seeking, is done behind somebody else’s back? I feel as though I’m not hitting the mark with these two.

    Because I’m only looking at the seven to clarify the Sun, does the negativity of the seven filter out because the Sun such a joyful card, or would the Sun become negative too?

    I apologize for so many questions. I’ve been working on trying to have a deeper understanding of these two cards in this position, through your interpretations, I honestly feel as though I can’t feel settled about the puzzle of these two cards together bothers me more then the reason I’m looking at them in the first place! 🙂

    Much appreciated.
