I lost my father this past week. I could have blogged about the effects of the Tower card and Death card. Would have been typical, and expected. I mean, don't get me wrong, they had a huge hand in my experience as of late. But something told me to post a huge image of the Sun card today. What does the Sun mean in tarot exactly? Well it is considered one of the most positive archetypes in the Tarot. Simple joy...childlike enthusiasm...warmth...love...bliss...confidence. So why I am I featuring it in my blog about my heartbreaking loss? Hmmmmmm. Well. Since the moment my father's health took a turn for the worse a couple weeks ago, my mother's home has been flooded with friends and family showing the best part of human nature: giving and sharing from the heart space. Old friends and distant relatives have been resurfacing in my life and expressing words so sincere and beautiful. Flowers are arriving. Food is constantly being cooked. Yes the painful tears are being shed, and the shock has definitely not worn off yet. There are trying times to come. But laughter has also been present. My father was an outrageously funny man, and I have been reminiscing with loved ones about stories so rich and so dear. He himself was a beam of light. Bright piercing fierce light. Ferocious fire. Filled with passion and not afraid to express it.
To solidify why I am choosing The Sun card today of all days when I am missing my father so so much, I must share that The Sun card is actually his Personality card. Through using numerology, one may find out what their soul, personality, and hidden factor/teacher card is for this life. My teacher card is The Sun. So there you have it. What my father naturally embodied in this life, I must learn to possess.
So in closing, I vow to carry on the virtues of The Sun. The virtues of my father. Passion. Vitality. Warmth. Love. Strength. Trust. Confidence. Zest for life. Joie de Vivre. Creativity. Wisdom. Abundance. Optimism. Fire. The ability to have wonderful relationships with others. The list goes on and on.
Blessed Be. ) O (
