The Sun Tarot Card

I am waiting for my baby to enter this world. I stumble

d across an anklet I had never worn before with little elephant and sun charms. It instantly caught my attention we choose animal names for all of the children and this new baby is our baby elephant as they are strong and this baby has survived so much already.

The sun charm encouraged me to look up the meaning of the sun card tarot card. When I began reading I didn’t get far before I discovered why the card had been calling me. One thing it signifies is the birth of a new child.

Reverse meaning of The Sun

When The Sun shows up reversed it is telling you that you are being affected by worry. A signal to relax and take a step back and reevaluate things. You still have success on the horizon but it may take a little more time and effort than you had envisioned.

Pulling The Sun reversed can represent your struggling to see the positive in life. A warning that you yourself are the one blocking blessings coming your way. The path ahead may be clouded from your vision making it difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Sometimes the sun shows up in reverse as a warning that you are too optimistic, controlled by an inflated ego or out of touch with the world or your own situation. This can be a good chance for you to take a step back and take a fresh look at the situation ahead of you.

The Sun is NEVER a negative card. This card represents heat, and light, healing, protection, and growth. This card symbolizes abundance coming your way and in reverse is just a signal of what you must consider to bring that wealth your way.
