Visual Interpretation of The Sun Card
The illustration of the Sun Card displays an optimistic visual of a bright and vibrant sun shining in the background, with both straight and wavy rays emanating from it. There is a naked child happily smiling on top of a white horse (without a saddle), holding an orange banner in the left hand. We can also see four beautiful sunflowers in the background.
The Sun, of course, is the source and reason for life here on Earth. This is symbolic in itself, and the two different types of rays extending from the Sun are symbolic as well. The straight rays represent action, while the wavy rays represent vibrational energy. The orange flag, or banner, that the child is holding reflect that same energy.
Anytime a child is depicted, we feel a young and joyous energy that we can all possess – our true inner child when consistently maintaining a connection with our Higher Self and spirit. As the child is naked, this represents purity, innocence, and the shameless concept of having absolutely nothing to hide.
The white horse that is so prominent on tarot cards emanates an energy of both spiritual purity and strength. There is no saddle for the child, reflecting the idea that the child is in total control, (without fear), which reflects perfection in controlling both the conscious and subconscious minds.
The four sunflowers portray the four suits of the Minor Arcana, but also represent the fruitfulness of nature, and life created from the nurturing nourishment of the Sun.
Numerology Association of The Sun Card
The Number 19 is a higher frequency of the Number One,(insert link to Number One article) as it reduces to 1 (1 + 9 = 10 → 1+0 = 1).
The Number One contains a raw energy of aggressive motivation, new beginnings, leadership, logic, ambition, motivation, assertiveness, and the power to create reality with natural talents and skills.
The Number Nine contains the most spiritual energy of all cardinal numbers, and is composed of completion, enlightenment, humanitarianism, liberation of material needs, service to humanity, transcendence, soul purpose, achievement, spirituality, the Universal Laws, self-sacrifice, dharma, unconditional love, and lightworking.
The Number Ten contains an energy of creative power, confidence, individuality, leadership, optimism, originality, independence, adaptability, and success. With the Number Ten, the energy of Number One is intensified. Zero emanates the powerful energy of Source to the Number One, reflecting the epitome of the Number One’s original meaning.
This combination of energies, (Number One, Number Nine, and Number Ten) create the essence of the Number 19/1.
