Should I be surprised The Sun Tarot card has appeared for me again? Why no! I was working in my garden all day – transplanting sunflowers!
The height of June and the week of The Summer Solstice is an excellent time to mull over the Sun card and what it means to you. I assume all of the Sun card’s obvious qualities – spontaneity, happiness, warmth, growth, blossoming, regenerative energy, good health and freedom.
The nature of time becomes elastic in summer. The days are longer, it is easier to slip away from work on a Friday, and you’ll linger over an alfresco meal, staying up too late with friends. I don’t know about you – summer reminds me of the freedom of youth.
It is easier to forget who you are in summer. You lose yourself to the rhythmic pound of the ocean’s waves, make out like a teenager on a boardwalk, or exchange your stress for a really tasty ice cream cone.
My four year old recently asked, “How long ‘till Christmas?” I gasped when I realized it is only six months away.
Want to make a pact with me? Let’s not let the summer slip away. I am making a promise to myself to enjoy, savor and be present for as much of this summer as possible. I invite you to do the same.
We’ll invoke the energy of the Sun Tarot card each and every day – even when thunderstorms come blasting through. We’ll shake the sand out of our shoes and the stress out of our life!
As Farmer’s Market tables topple with heirloom tomatoes and juicy watermelon and flowers explode with color – we’ll use this as a metaphor for our work, our relationships, and our enjoyment of life. We’ll kiss someone on the beach, eat cotton candy, cook for our friends and plan at least one, if not two, fantastic vacations.
Let’s make this summer last!
