For an introduction to the 78 days of tarot project, please click here.

Visual Card Description:  The Aten* is pictured, its rays coming down as hands to caress a man kneeling in adoration below it.  There are hieroglyphs in the upper right corner.

Free Association:  Favour, Harmony, Happiness, Shining From Within, Blessings

Rider-Waite/Traditional Associations:  When the Sun card shows for you, it’s a sign that soon you are likely to find yourself feeling more free than you have in a while – maybe years. This is a great time to take a vacation and to experience different things. The Sun is about vitality, freedom, joy, and self-expression. 

Things in general are very likely to be going very well for you. However, even though finances are likely to be in good shape when this card appears, that does not mean that you should lose focus on what is truly important in life, and money is not very high on that list. This is a good time to socialize, to meet new people, and to get out and about.

Meaning from the lwb (little white book that came with this deck):  Harmony, friendship, serenity, sincerity in feelings, happiness, love, satisfaction.  Positive period, solution of problems, artistic flash of inspiration.  Faithful collaborators, glory, honour, celebrity.

My interpretation:   The Aten here symbolizes cosmic providence and benevolence, as without the sun, nothing would exist.  This is the signifier of a good and blessed period.  Under this influence things will come out in your favor.  Don’t waste this good omen on trivial matters.
