Tarot Major Arcana: The Sun

The Sun

unconditional love

The light of consciousness and love comes into being to continue revealing the unseen roots of suffering, promote understanding and compassion and engender a deep acceptance of what is.

The Sun either simply shines spontaneously from within or it comes into our lives through a person we meet, a book, a spiritual teacher, a therapist, meditation, tarot, contact with a non-incarnated spiritual guide, and so forth. The light shines and healing is promoted until it constantly shines spontaneously from within.

This wise and loving energy guides and heals the suffering energy. This is shown by how the happy figure on the right holds and guides the traumatized-looking figure on the left on the Sun arcanum.

The figure on the left has a tail, showing that he carries residual energy from the devil and thus is still subject to psychological suffering.

Notice the three dots on the happy figure’s torso: the symbol of the natural trinity of “love, truth and beauty”. And that is what is imparted in their contact, inviting the figure on the left to leave the “moony” emotional turbulent waters it stands in, leave its identification with the body and its history and stand on peaceful ground, and then, in turn, give freely as the Sun must naturally do.
