And that’s what the Sun does. It has to be seen. Again and again. It comes up every day. It doesn’t wait to be seen.
And as the Tarot of the New Vision shows us, it looks the same from both sides. Tarot of the New Vision is designed to get behind the Rider Waite Smith deck to let us see what’s happening behind the scenes.
Not much difference in XIX The Sun. The Sun itself looks the same. The child is headed away from sunflowers into more sunflowers. We get the back view of the horse and the child, but we still have a naked child with nothing to hide, carried on the purified animal nature of the white horse. The big staff bearing the orange banner still looks like a giant wand (and look at your Tarot . . . It’s Easier Than You Think handout to remind yourself what wands stand for). The gold crown and golden hair still indicate the regal mission fulfilled: living in service to the Divine mission. The feather of airy intellect is a grounded red.
The big change is in the absence of the wall. Limitations are behind us.
And it’s that way in the self-actualized person, isn’t it? We leave our past limitations behind. No more wobbling between ego stances. Now there’s a solid sense of the self that’s lived out in daily life.
Celebrate the victory of your true self, day after day!
