"...Drums like thunder
As you dance across the sky.
Stand in wonder,
At this gift you give.
Attach your spirit to this tree of life
Pray for peace..."*

Suddenly you find yourself again, not that you really ever lost yourself. But, heading into the darkness, obscurs the light, strips you of all those daylight inhibitions. You can imagine, returning to the outside, the little one you once were, in a warm, sunny happy place, the last words you remember from the whispers inside your head, 'like an eagle, you take flight. Your heart is strong. You sing your song.' And that is what it feels like, back in a time, laughing and free, running, in that safe place, where the world has not yet touched you. You are young, and yet at the same time ageless. You are almost back home.

Stopping for a moment, you hear words you do not understand, but they are reassuring nonetheless. Music plays in the air, the way you once imagined it would, and then singing echoes off the distant mountains. This is a place of ponies, and light, where the winds of life are still blowing. And it's time, to live and to give our love, and dream, dreams that can come true, just for you. Today your dream is to catch the rainbow. And you smile, with no thought except of the moment. Life is good.

While I have found MOST of Robin's Majors to be really well drawn, and pleasing to the eye, I cannot say that of The Sun card. Here is my impression, as noted in my written journal, during the meeting: I am put off by the drawing of the child; he reminds me of Chuckie, the demon doll. Take the child's face away and we have a combination of Magician and a baby Emperor, color and feel wise in this card, though I refer more to The Seeker in comparison.

The idea of the Sun came through, none the less. Following are my SUN insights:

This card shows a return to and of full light, great joy and a return to the innocence of The Fool/Seeker - child self; unfettered by societal mores. There is purity and courage and strength of pure spirit here. We are the Sundancer!

The seeker nears the end of the journey. This is the time to celebrate and play. A sense of accomplishment abounds.

The Sun represents the completion of 'The Journey' and is ready to go to Judgement City, to look at lessons learned on the journey. Will he move on after judgement? Will he be able to truly have the 'World' at his fingertips?

In a reading, I can see this card would represent that everything is open - what was hidden is now seen. If it should land in the Past position, I would say that the way is open for movement onward. Should it be a present situation, it might represent a project finishing successfully. Finally, the Sun of the Future would represent great potential for success.

  1. Chuckie. Yup. You nailed it. Honestly, I have seen a few Sun cards that just give me the creeps. I wonder if that is because I don't like what I see when I am illuminated or if most artists just can't get a happy, yet profound looking, cherub that doesn't look somewhat demonic?

  2. Whew! You saw it too! I thought it was just me lol ... I think it is the artists. I looked thru most of the Sun cards over at the Tarot dot com selection of decks, and didn't see almost any that made me feel comfortable about the character of the child. And the ones that didn't have that Chuckieness, were somber. The thing is, it didn't stop me from seeing the meaning of the card because there was enough else in it that I understood. It did make me want to try my own hand at drawing a happy child that didn't, as you say, 'look somewhat demonic.'
