You may spring out of bed today with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and optimism. Perhaps you’ve gotten good news. Or maybe you’re making a conscious decision to approach life from a place of joy and gratitude.
Either way, you’re going to see that the Universe responds in kind. Like attracts like and as you shift your attention toward what’s right in the world, more things will fall into place around you.
The figures in this card embody this energy perfectly. They skip gleefully through a field of sunflowers, seemingly without a care in the world. The Sun shines down upon them from behind, the glyphs for the twelve zodiac signs etched in its rays.
These symbols remind us that we’re already whole and perfect just as we are. We’re all comprised of the entire spectrum of archetypes that both connect us to each other and make us uniquely ourselves.
The lotus blossom in the center of the Sun represents purity and enlightenment. The Hebrew symbol ר (Resh) at the base of the card refers to comprehension, illumination and awe.
There’s a child-like wonder seen in this card. The figures are not only barefoot but they’re equipped with wings. If you look closely you’ll see that their feet barely touch the ground. They could use those wings and take flight at any moment.
The Sun card is all about optimism, enthusiasm and personal radiance. It’s about being yourself and allowing yourself to “shine,” without any pretense or constraint.
No matter where you are in the world — even those of us dealing with the bitter cold — the Sun is shining brightly in the sky. We may not always see it but it’s always there — and serves as a reminder of the warmth and vitality that each of us possess.

The Magician card is all about bringing your talents to the table and putting them to good use.
Perhaps you have been looking for a job or thinking of changing your occupation. If so it would be wise for you to sit down and assess exactly what it is you can bring to the table of any new employer or occupation you are chasing down.
This doesn’t need to be about you finding a job: it could be that you’re thinking about expanding your knowledge which makes you a little more employable and more valuable in the job market.
You may really be wishing to change jobs but are a little hesitant as you don’t think you have all that a new employer is looking for.
If this is the case think again because the card of the Magician is a strong indicator of a new job, change in careers and if you are happy in your current job it may be that you are about to be given more duties to perform.
Focus on the hands in this card you will see that one is pointed to the earth whilst the other is pointed to the heavens suggesting that you are aspiring to something great yet also grounded enough to see that you cannot just take a big jump and land in that greatness without a bit of preparation.

It’s a good day to be alive! With the Sun in your face and the Wind in your hair you may be feeling a renewed sense of vitality, enthusiasm and anticipation for the path that’s laid out before you.
The Sun card refers to a period where things seem to be going well for you — or maybe it’s just that your attitude has you focusing on what’s right in the world for a change.
You’re optimistic about the future: perhaps you’ve made New Years resolutions that you expect to keep this time around. Or you could be doing better financially, feeling better about your health, or seeing your relationship in a new light.
In this version of the card, we see young boy riding bareback through a field of sunflowers. The Sun shines brightly in the sky while the horse trots along with a steady gate. A field of sunflowers lines the path beside him, each stretching up to bathe in the Sun’s light.
He’s clearly in his element here. So comfortable is he on the back of his horse that he doesn’t even need a saddle or reins (or shoes for that matter). His hat is long gone.
This is one of the best versions of the Sun card ever. You can just feel his exuberance and you know he’s on the right path.
Along with the happy, fearless and adventurous energy in this card, there’s also a childlike wonder and exuberance. Keep this idea of “reinventing yourself” alive today and you can’t go wrong. The emphasis on freeing yourself from worldy burdens and concerns can go a long ways toward achieving your goals.

It may be time to start treating yourself as a Queen and putting your own needs and wants first rather than doing what everyone else wants you to do and scrutinising over every decision and move you make.
If you were looking for a promotion at work you will need to be equally on the alert that you are not seen as someone who is not able to stand their ground and do what is needed.
Because while others see you as no threat they will pass by you and possibly go over you when it comes to a promotion at work which leaves you back at square one.
On the other hand if you are taking care of or nurturing someone else this is an excellent month for you as you seem to know just what to do or say at the right moment.
Relationships may be coming under scrutiny for you and your own place within the relationship being put under the microscope so to speak.
Don’t be afraid to make the changes you see needed change and don’t be held back by over analysing everything around you.
Everyone has the right to do what is best for them and from the image on this card there doesn’t look like there is any chance you would hurt someone in the purpose.

ARIES: The Sun
This month should see you feeling a sense of satisfaction and contentment over recent accomplishments.
The Sun card is traditionally associated with vitality, warmth and a sense of feeling particularly “alive.” But in this version the focus is just as much on taking care of yourself and manifesting that vitality through soaking in the Sun’s rays and recharging your batteries.
The Sun, Mercury and Venus all move through your 6th house this month — the area associated with work and with self-improvement, which includes your physical and mental well-being. Rest and relaxation is just as essential to that process as are work and productivity.
The “Sun” in this card appears to be setting. It casts its rays onto the ocean in the background, shining across the surface like molten gold.
The image of the woman sleeping comfortably without a worry in the world perfectly captures the essence of the Sun. There’s a sense of effortlessness that’s associated with this card, even as the world keeps on turning around you.
Your ruler (Mars) moves into Sag this month (on the 13th) and into your 9th house — the area associated with personal growth and expansion. After that point there will be plenty of time to spread your wings and fly.

Venus moves into Leo today and brings with it the flamboyance of the peacock and the warmth of the Sun.
The Sun card (following on the heals of the Moon card a few days ago) is all about optimism, enthusiasm and personal radiance. It’s about allowing yourself to “shine,” without any pretense or constraint.
Where the Moon card can reflect your doubts and uncertainties, the Sun reflects your strengths and capabilities. It’s about following your bliss and manifesting your own personal radiance.
The woman in this card could probably use a spot of Sun. She looks off over her shoulder at something (or someone) that’s caused her obvious distress. In the foreground is a peacock — looking off in the same direction. And notice the child’s hand reaching up from the bottom of the card.
The Sun reflects your own inner light and inspires you to let it shine. It encourages you to say yes to life rather than letting your troubles hold you back. It tells you to turn your face to the Sun rather rather than looking back over your shoulder toward whatever caused you to dim your light in the first place.

If you find yourself needing to draw on inner strength this month or gain help from those around you then don’t be afraid to ask.
You are not alone and you have plenty of resources to help you along your path. Even though you cannot see the final outcome you have an inner “knowingness” to help you on your way.
As the month progresses you should be feeling the changes around you as you seem to shed your skin and grow a new one… meaning… the changes you implement around you in your environment are coming from within and yourself as opposed to outside forces.
If there is a relationship you feel has outgrown its purpose and has been holding you back then you are well and truly on the road to releasing yourself from its clutches and what’s more you have the strength and resources to back you up.
Reach out to anyone you think may be of help to you now as you start your new cycle.
The moon in the background of this card may seem to be either in its first or last quarter or if you look at it again it could even be seen as an eclipse… and eclipses mean change!
