And wouldn't you know it?

The card I drew.
The card of the Sun symbolizes conscious spirit that struggles with superstition, helplessness, ignorance, and bondage to fatalism and despair. On a divinatory level, it indicates a time of clarity and optimism. It is possible to comprehend the pattern, to visualize a future, and to move forward willfully.

Apollo was always my favourite Greek god. And the Sun is probably my most favourite card from the Major Arcana - thanks JM, I needed that.

Btw, I've missed dropping by - but Mars burning through my Gemini 10th house has, as I foresaw, dropped a tonne of work on my shoulders :).

Greetings to all!

Work!! Good to see you ninth. It was a pleasure seeing the card turn up after a harrowing week of Saturn at 29. Perfect finale.

I love this image and the myths and stories of Apollo. I think of clean lines of soaring Greek architecture. The land beyond the sunset. The heart of the sunrise.

I lived five years in the desert and have always been drawn to live in dry areas with lots of sunlight.

I don't feel I am too much of a water person, although I'm certified as a rescue diver and enjoy recreational diving. On the reef where light is plentiful and bends in mysterious ways.


For many years I was inspired by Cirque du Soleil (circus of the sun) and have seen dozens of shows and known some of the performers. The brilliance of the sun can forge a new way and can purify our memories. I feel its power as a radiant core that shines from within the inspired, unstoppable.

Mpk, such inspiring words. I also spent 5 years in the desert, which struck me as odd. I didn't think it was for me, which proves how little we sometimes know about ourselves. Now I still live high and dry away from water.

The land beyond the sunset. The heart of the sunrise.

What a great thought. The landscape of the sun's work and what's to be found there. I've always thought of the sun as illuminating future possibility since the horizon is involved twice daily. Just came up with a thought. East and West. Matters not what direction we go.

The brilliance of the sun can forge a new way and can purify our memories.

Memory and moon. Habit. Another good thought.
