Success! Glory! What a lovely card! Both in illustration and in meaning! Things have been rough going the last several weeks ( We’ve had the ten of wands SO many times!) So it’s so good to see this card! Truthfully, I draw this card so infrequently that at first I didn’t recognize it!
In the Gilded Tarot we see the sun, blazing down in all its glory upon all the planets and all the symbols of the zodiac. Sharing brilliance and illumination with all things everywhere! It’s a card of expansion! Joy! Confidence!
In other decks, quite often the illustration shows a child on a horse riding with a sense of confidence, excitement and victory. With the Sun, we are the golden child, we can do no wrong. We have confidence in ourselves, we will be recognized for our abilities and have our moment of glory!
Whatever is our undertaking of the day, be assured we will succeed! Enjoy this moment in the sun. It is often hard won!
