Last year, it seemed XIX The Sun was showing up regularly. It’s been almost exactly a year since we’ve last seen it.
Have you noticed times in your readings when particular cards show up over and over? You know, kind of like the kids poking you in the arm, “Hey, Mom”, “Hey, Mom”, “Hey, Mom”.
Well, it’s exactly like that. You’re continuing to resonate with a particular energy and your higher self is letting you know it’s an important thing to be aware of.
Sometimes it’s stuff we don’t really want to pay attention to. But you know that’s exactly when the kids poke at you harder, right? Or go off and get into big trouble that takes even more of your time and attention. And we learn we’d have done better if we’d just interrupted the course we were on to attend to the pokey kids.
XIX The Sun is usually a welcome interruption (especially at this time of year, here in the northern hemisphere). Unless you’re terribly shy and hate being seen out in public. Or unless you’re really comfortable putting on the dog and hate being seen for who you are.
In the William Blake Tarot, we’ve got the sun on the horizon of the river of life. We’re encouraged to jump in the river, to immerse ourselves in life, in our most naked, authentic and vulnerable state. It’s as if we can go with the flow and follow the river right to the blessings of that sun.
It’s the participation in life that is really the reward of XIX The Sun, being out in the glorious world, sharing from our natural inclinations, being received for who we are in spirit.
Shine it on!
