The Sun: Play in Delight

This card, in the Rider-Waite deck, shows Sunflowers as a happy backdrop. Although it is commonly believed that the Sunflower “tracks” the Sun, this is actually not true. However, it is certain that the spiritualist movement used the idea as their logo, because of the vision of “turning to the light”.

So when this card comes up in a reading, we are being reminded to focus on joy, on delight, on the lighter and more innocent times of our life. We should unburden ourselves of grown-up responsibilities for a while, and simply play.

It may be hard to do this sometimes, but the Sun card shines for everyone, and we all have our own right to find our own place in its light.

What do you do to play?
