Last year at this time, we had unseasonably high temperatures. In Minnesota in March, we are usually in the 40s. Last year, we enjoyed 60 and 70 degree days and even one 80 degree day. This year, we are unseasonably low, with temps in the 20s and 30s. Right about now, I am longing to feel warm. So I am a little obsessed with the Sun card. My favorite Sun card of all time is the one from the Gaian Tarot:
And I’m working with exercises from Kim Huggens’ Tarot 101, a brilliant book.
Here are a few of the exercises she provides for working with the Sun card:
Make a vow to yourself: for one month you will aim to do at least one thing each day that makes you truly happy, soothes your soul, and helps you to grow and learn.
Do some research on the Sun in world mythology: is it associated with a particular kind of figure? What role does it play? Where does it stand in the cosmology of the culture? How is it viewed?
She also provides some questions for journaling:
What makes you truly happy?
How do you celebrate?
Are you innocent? What does innocence mean to you?
What is the source of your growth and evolution?
Do you feel you are still growing as a person, or do you feel stunted?
