The Sun – #19
The Solar Star – Joy and Transformation

The Sun is the divine marriage of the self/spirit with God/Creator. When the sun is shining, everything becomes simple and joyous. The Sun feeds our life force. It makes us feel better. The warmth of the sun feeds, nourishes and heals our souls and bodies. The Sun is energetic, motivating, creative, active and transformative. It brings a feeling of being alive and renewed. The Sun is constant. It rises every day bringing new light with it, and new opportunities.

The Sun is knowledge filled with light, love and wisdom. It is the integration of the opposite poles, the light and the dark. It is the balance/blending of the conscious and the subconscious. It represents a perfect balance with God/Creator. The Chinese symbol of this experience is yin/yang – the blending of male and female energies, the symbol of inner peace that our spirits seek. The restlessness and questioning stops. As our spirit begins to be free and shine outwardly, the inherent joy (divine inner child) within each of us can reach out and touch the light of God, giving us fulfillment and happiness. Even if we remain closed in, the constant light of God/Creator is endlessly sending golden, healing and enlightening rays, trying to filter through those boarded-up inner windows. The Sun liberates and transforms energy that is locked inside. This experience is transformative and liberating. There is no fear – you have faith in yourself and in God/Creator. Faith can transform your inner world, which then transforms the world around you.

The Sun brings enlightenment, which is an experience – not an idea. Without saying a word, enlightenment  will shine through one’s eyes and being. Enlightened eyes experience the world as spiritual and eternal, rather than the drudgery of day-to-day experiences of life’s endless chores. The challenges of The Sun are to have faith, being able to trust yourself and others, listening to your divine inner child, thriving rather than surviving, not manifesting on your limitations and restrictions but seeing what is working and what is integrated within your polarities. When we are able to trust and have faith in ourselves, balancing and blending our dualities, we move to spiritual realization and rebirth. The Sun represents reaching to a new joyous level, as we come out of a trying time in our life. It is a time of happiness. Our spiritual realization is that we are basking in the sun of the light of God the Creator. Let The Sun shine in, let your light shine out and feel the unity with all. Dance the dance of unlimited opportunities that this world and universe have to offer.
