Tarot card for the Day ~ July 31

The Sun


This card last turned up for the Summer Solstice.  [I know.  I found it hard to belive myself.]  In any case, it’s GREAT card for a  deep summer Friday.


There is so much hope in this card!  And that’s something we can all use lately.

It’s especially aimed at those − like I am, without any question or possible hope of plausible deniability − who would be deliriously happy with a card that says, “Grab a double espresso or two.  Crawl into a linen-lined cave till that bright, shiny thing in the sky dims a bit.  Then check to see if it’s safe to come out.”

Unh –UH!  NO!NO!NO! 

[God, Neal will you PLEASE turn down the print?  You’re giving yourself a headache again.]  [Sorry.]

It’s also appropriate for people who have been saying things like, “This isn’t working.  It really, really isn’t working.  What am I doing wrong?  In fact, what am I doing?  This just doesn’t seem to be working.”

Well, let’s all pay attention.  On this Friday morning, the Universal Sun will be cruising just outside all our bedroom windows, saying,

“Hey!  HEY!!!!!!!! 

“The herbs are up in the garden.  Lavender is scenting the air!  A few of the roses are still in bloom.  Tony down the street is showing off his first tomatoes of the season.  The robins and sparrows are dive bombing each other for scraps of bread.   The hawks are soaring and seeking.  The cocker spaniel is yawning at the squirrels as they wait for the neighbor to toss them some peanuts (“slopping the squirrels”), and wondering why you don’t chase the little tree rats for her.

“It really is amazingly beautiful out here!!  And there is so much AMAZING potential if we just open to it and connect!  LOOOOOOVE Your World!  Love Your Self!  LOOOOOOOOVE Your LIFE!  Yesterday’s gone.  Go after you most beautiful and beloved wishes!  Nooooow!!!!!!!!!!



Specifics?  Aw, mayinnn!

Okay.  Fine.  Be that way.  But only because I’m in a good mood.  You should remember from last time.  [Why?  Like I do?]

It doesn’t take too much work to figure out that The Sun betokens joy, light, and clarity of vision.  Not to mention material happiness and general contentmentA really lovely offering for any day, no?  So OWN that!

For me, The Sun is one of the two great wish cards of the deck. 

It says,

“You shall have happiness, health, wealth, peace and all good things

IF you are clear within yourself about what your wishes truly are

(now, not yesterday, not last year, not a decade ago)

AND you hold true to those wishes, moment by moment by moment.” 

After all, the Universe can only give back to you what you put out as vibration.


And the Universe will judge that in part by that to which you GIVE YOUR ATTENTION, moment by moment by moment.  Right?  Right?  Right!

(By the way, in some interpretations, The Sun betokens an engagement. So if you’ve wanted to pop the question… just be sure it’s what you REALLY WISH!)

What is your wish? 

What are your wishes? 

How can you stay conscious of those wishes as you go through your day? 

How can you honor those wishes in positive ways? 

Hold your wishes as your focus − even as you go through all the activity, priorities and sheer STUFF you must attend to as you do what you must to deal with your day. 


See the beauty. 


Brightest, blessings and superb wishcraft!
