The Sun holds number 19, and it is the twentieth tarot card of the Major Arcana cards.
The Sun tarot card, in its core, usually represents experiencing a moment of glory, satisfaction, and light falling on the whole truth on a matter you have been thinking about. The Sun’s planetary ruler is the Sun.
The Sun Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawing, The Sun may come up straight, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic reader conducts their readings, because a tarot card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
The Sun card would represent:
|Getting to know the whole truth
|Finding sense behind the chaos
|Having a new insight
|Experiencing a moment of glory
|Being the center of attention, confident
|Being the chosen one
|Filled with joy and vitality
|Being charged up, enthusiastic
|Honoring your true self
In a reverse position, The Sun would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Lack of enthusiasm
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If The Sun would sit in a horizontal position, it advises you to recognize your accomplishments but be aware of ego.
You should enjoy your achievements and make it known to the world, but you should also keep your ego and pride in check, because it may overtake you easily if you are experiencing great success. You should also be aware of how others react to your good news because not everyone is happy for you or will applause you. You should still be humble, no matter how high you reach.

Maybe you refuse to get to know your other half better because you may have ego issues, and you want things to be done your own way.
You don’t always acknowledge your partner is their own person with thoughts and dreams and the ways they do their things. You should seek a way to compromise and find a way to put aside your pride or lower your walls.

Regarding finances, it indicates that you are enjoying an abundance of money and finances will keep looking better and better.
What not to do?
The Sun would advise you to grab the opportunities that come your way, then get more information about them. You should not lack the courage to speak up for yourself if you want a promotion, or to look for a new opportunity, because you do not lack the qualification to do so. Also, it advises you to be more realistic with your goals and break down your big goals into smaller steps.
Reverse Position (Business and Finance)
In this case, it could indicate that you may be feeling pessimistic about your job situation, financial status, or your work results.

It can indicate that you have set unrealistic expectations for yourself, or you expect to be an overnight success, forgetting that there are steps you need to take along the way.

The Sun would foretell a day when you may feel enthusiastic and ready to tackle any problem that may come up. You will feel lighter than usual in spirit, and you may notice things flowing easier.
