Indication:

The fulfillment of your wishes is possible here and now.
Relax, and give yourself up to the dance.
All energies are fully available for the creative process.
The light of consciousness will permeate all aspects of being.

Question to Ask:

What task or project is on the agenda for you now?
In what ways can you open yourself up for the joys of the world?

Affirmation:

I am in harmony with the divine light that fills and guides me.
I radiate love and joy upon the world.
I am free.

In Divination, Arcanum XIX may be read as Happiness and Joy. Arcanum XIX expresses in the spiritual world, the supreme heaven. In the intellectual world, true happiness. In the physical world, sacred union. Remember, then, son of the earth, that the light of mysteries is a redoubtable fluid, put by nature at the service of the will. She lights those who know how to direct her, she strikes down with a thunderbolt those who ignore her power or who abuse it.

01. A new and radiant day has dawned. The Sun gives strength. He offers abundance and vitality. He signifies health and invigoration, clarity, and confidence, all without ego. This is the card of attainment and fulfillment. The Sun warms all it touches. Yet he also demands that success is to be shared and that all rewards be distributed equally. He is the clarion call of victory over darkness, of our emergence into the light. He is the source of power and energy, the fuel that drives divine will.

02. Under the Sun, everything becomes simple, joyous, and physical. The light of the unconscious is brought into daily life. The sunstruck person feels a sense of wisdom, of seeing everything with total clarity.  Enlightenment is an experience. The person feels struck by a burst of light, suddenly the world is seen or felt, as spiritual and eternal, rather than the day-to-day existence of drudgery and confusion. The Sun experience was essentially a burst of freedom. It was a breaking loose, a wonderful liberation from ordinary restricted consciousness to openness and freedom.

03. The Sun represents success, radiance and abundance. The Sun gives you strength and tells you that your positive and radiant energy will follow you and bring you happiness and joy. People are drawn to you because you can always see the bright side and bring such warmth into other people’s lives. This beautiful, warm energy is what will get you through the tough times and help you succeed. You are also in a position where you can share your highest qualities and achievements with others. Radiate who you are and what you stand for; shine your love on those you care about.
04. The Sun reflects a time when you can expect to experience an increase in physical energy, vitality and general positivity. You are bursting with enthusiasm, invigorated and enjoying a wonderful sense of good health. You’ll sense it in your Solar Plexus chakra, calling you to express yourself authentically and be fully present in the world around you. Tap into your power and use your Divine will to express that power in positive ways.

06. The Sun Reversed is calling to your inner child to come out and play! When you see The Sun Reversed in your Tarot reading, see it as your permission to leave behind your work and responsibilities, even just for a moment, and play. Dance like no-one is watching, sing like no-one is listening, and let your heart and soul fly free.
07. The Sun Reversed can mean you are struggling to see the bright side of life. You may experience certain setbacks which are damaging your optimism and enthusiasm. You may feel depressed or left out and are no longer enjoying what you are doing. Your direction and path ahead may appear clouded or distorted. Nonetheless, this is only temporary. The obstacles you see can be easily removed if you put your mind to it.
08. On the other hand, you may be too confident or overly optimistic. You may have become unrealistic, egotistical and out of touch with what you can achieve. There are things that you need to take into account in order to ensure that you are on the right track and your successes continue as they do.
Since tarot is an image-forward symbolic system, I find it helpful to look at the different variations of the same card, allowing me to have a more comprehensive understanding of each tarot card.
See if you feel connected to one of the cards more than the others.
