Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't going away. ― Elvis Presley

 

Maybe the dark things that live in the corners of my brain aren't so scary after all?  Maybe I can take them out and let some light shine on them.

That's the Sun card.  Everything is moved into the light.  I get an image in my head of the sunshine reaching into the darkest, deepest corners of us.  Burning away the sadness, the lies and distortions, the broken trusts and broken hearts.  The sunshine illuminates and enlightens us, and shows us that when the shadows and dark and twisties go away, it's not so scary out here after all.  The Beatles absolutely had it right.

"Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting

Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,

and I say it's all right

It's all right"

That's this card.  Yes, it's been hard.  It's broken your heart and what you thought was going to be just isn't.  And you can't fix that, but you can open your eyes and look around you at all the beauty that surrounds us.  And on this side, when you're healed?  You can better deal with the next Tower or Moon or whatever life has in store for you.  Because once you've felt the Sun, you don't soon forget it.

It's all right.

For the Tarot MixTape Playlist, I give you "Outshine the Sun" by Juliana Finch, and The Beatles "Here Comes the Sun".  Lovely.
