He is riding away from it, leaving it behind. The sunflowers look toward him instead of to the sun for nourishment. They are seeking his wisdom. There are four sunflowers, representing the four suits of the Minor Arcana, as well as the four elements. The wreath and the feather are the same wreath and feather the Fool wears.

Support all efforts to grow. Brilliant. Radiant. Sparkling. So many of our words reflect the power and glory of light.

You have triumphed over the events and lessons of the past and are moulding a new persona which is not yet strong enough to hold its own.

This card’s work is to cleanse, to purify, to enhance, to improve, to illuminate. This card is a primal “YES!” to Life. It is luck, wellness, and positive consciousness. It is embracing one’s destiny, “going for it” in a very positive sense. You may have journeyed through darkness to get here, but this is the light.
Plans are clouded. Marriage in trouble. Loss of a valued object.
At either sunrise or midday or a Sunday arrange a bunch of brightly coloured flowers and prepare a goblet of a sparkling mineral water mixed with orange juice. Adorn yourself with jewellery and a golden garment. On a yellow ribbon write these words, ” Golden light, we are one, shine on me, gift of the sun.” Tie it around your wrist and drink the “sun water”. Enjoy the day.

Here’s a site where you’ll find my writings.
The Bravehearts of Belgrave High is now published. I have completed the first in a series of novels that I wrote for teens. It is the courageous story of a young girl growing up in a home filled with domestic violence. She also has to endure a school and neighbourhood full of bullies. We read how she maneuvres her way through such a difficult situation. Plus, how she grows because of it, among other themes in the novel.
The desired outcome for young readers is that they will be inspired to treasure their unique differences. If they don’t fit in with the system or with those around them, then they should realise that it’s quite okay not to fit in.
My first novel was written to help raise funds for the private foundation that I established, which might later become a charity. Click here if you’d like to be taken to the site where you can purchase this novel. If you cannot see the site, use a browser other than Chrome.
