The Sun Tarot Card: Upright, Reversed, & Love Meanings

The Sun Card Meaning

The Sun card in Tarot radiates positive energy. This is one of the most optimistic cards, indicating enthusiasm and joie de vivre.

Upright Sun Card Meaning

When the Sun card is upright in a Tarot reading, the card indicates satisfaction, accomplishment, success, joy. Everything is looking up. You are going to have your day in the sun. Feel free to step into the spotlight with confidence. Things are going to work out fine! You have so much goodness to share that everyone near you will benefit. There's plenty to go around.

Reversed Sun Card Meaning

When the Sun card is reversed in a Tarot reading, it indicates unhappiness, doubt, canceled plans, or an uncertain future. Maybe you've been overconfident and are just now realizing how you've overstepped yourself. You know the sun is there, but it's just out of sight, hidden behind unhappy clouds. It can be difficult to see the path forward without its light to guide you. You may feel lonely or think that your friends are all hanging out without you. You will have to put a little more energy into it, but the benefits of the upright version of this card can be yours as well. You just need to push through a few more obstacles first.

The Sun Card Love Meaning

The Sun card in a Tarot love reading may mean the start of an engagement or happy marriage. If you are single, your warm, positive energy is attractive to others, and this may even lead to a new relationship. If you are already in a relationship, it may mean that it is a healthy and positive one, or it's the beginning of a new stage in your current relationship.
