Here Comes the Sun

This post was written by Barbara Moore

Of The Sun card from The Fey Tarot, Riccardo Minetti writes: “…the Sun is an Arcana that by nature is without any kind of ambiguity. It has no shadows, no veils, no half-measures. The sun represents all truths, all certainties…the joy of fullness and of security, when no doubt troubles the soul.”

When this card comes up in a reading or I have to write about it for a book, sometimes I don’t have much to say because it seems so simple and clear. For the Mystic Dreamer Tarot, I wrote: “The Sun brings a simple message of joy.”

So what better way to commemorate the simple joys heralded by The Sun with a complex exploration of it via a spread? I know, right? Have at it and, as always, let me know what you think…about the spread and about The Sun.


1. How do you define joy?

2. How does joy connect you to the divine or your Higher Self?

3. How do you express joy in your daily life?

4. How do you receive joy?

5. How do you give or share joy?

6. What gives you joy intellectually or how do you experience it intellectually?

7. What gives you joy creatively or spiritually or how do you experience it creatively or spiritually?

8. What gives you joy physically or how do you experience it physically?

9. What gives you joy emotionally or how do you experience it emotionally?

The Sun cards in this post are from: The Fey Tarot, The Mystic Dreamer Tarot, and The Gaian Tarot.

I’m a fustrated illustrator, who’ve forgotten what it’s like to have the SUN touch me in ways… that I’ve seen THAT ENERGY touch others… (( Basically wrestling with Negative Energy / Blocked Creativity / and somehow indecisive about how to proceed in any direction for fear of being JUDGED.)) — so here it goes, doing this deck by hand…

play the soundtrack for “The Crying Game”

1.) The Lovers, Reversed
2.) The World, Reversed
3.) 10 of swords, Reversed
4.) 8 of swords
5.) Death, Reversed

remind me to pinch myself in the arm, HARD…

6.) Queen of Cups, Rx (( My Mother…))
7.) Queen of Wands
8.) 5 of cups
9.) The Sun, RX (( Soundgarden, Black Hole Sun ))

I’ve got a love for Film Noir – a style where it was created in the 30′s & 40′s to hide the characters in shadow… and press some emotional buttons to throw the audience off from the real story.

This is how I justify my darkness.

The Sun for me brings energy of a youthful quality. Abandonment of worries and concerns to allow them to take care of themselves while I go off to enjoy the Sun’s energy.

You’ve offered a very thought out spread, unfortunately most of my clients wouldn’t want to explore their source of joy. It would be more satisfying if they did :D

Looking over my own joys these last couple of years, I love reading and writing therefore I’ve changed career gears to allow more joy/Sun energy into my life.

Thank you for offering this layout to your blog readers.
