Traditionally, The Sun tarot card shows a very happy child riding a horse and holding a flag. Behind the child is a large sun and a garden of sunflowers.
It’s an extremely positive card, especially for marriage, children, or material success.
This is an active card about celebrating how far you’ve come. Things are going extremely well, so take the time to show gratitude with a sense of child-like wonder.
As The Fool wraps up his journey through the Major Arcana, The Sun has a clear and positive message about the connection between a fun, positive attitude and good health, happiness, and success.
You have done the hard work to learn and integrate this life lesson. Now it’s time to honor and mark your growth.
The Sun card doesn’t want you to wait, either. Celebrating and showing gratitude for your success is mandatory. Don’t put it off or immediately start striving for something better.
This is a wonderful time and deserves to be honored as such. You’ve come so far and are amazing!
When you recognize and acknowledge your accomplishments, you allow even more wonderful things to happen.
