The Sun is ruled by the element Fire. Astrologically this card corresponds to The Sun too. The very image and notion of The Sun is of optimism, of going to light from dark, and fulfillment. The dawn is sure to come after even the darkest nights.
The Sun is the source of life on earth. There is a child depicted in the foreground who is playing happily. It shows that when we are in tune with our inner self complete happiness comes to us.
The child is naked - holding no secrets. It represents innocence and purity. This purity factor is also enhanced by the white horse on which the child rides.
The horse in without a saddle and the child even does not have any reigns. It symbolizes the strength of mind and the perfect control and balance between the conscious and the subconscious.
The orange banner in the left hand of the child says that the control has passed from the conscious to the subconscious. The orange banner, just like the rays of the run, represents vibrant demeanor and action.
The sunflowers praise the life and fulfillment that the rays of the sun bring to our spirit. There are four sunflowers - each representing a suit of the Minor Arcana, and the four elements as well.
