Daily Draw: Chinese Tarot ~ Sun
In Chinese mythology there were many suns and the earth was a heat blasted wasteland. Hon Yi was commissioned to shoot down all but one and his skill with the bow made Earth habitable.
Hon Yi was awarded the Emperor's daughter in marriage for his feat. She was less than impressed. When the Emperor, worried the suns would return one day, gave Hon Yi a immortality potion his wife stole and drank it. She became immortal all right, but now spends eternity on the Moon for her perfidy. I'm reminded by this card to be careful what I wish for, I just might get it.
"I am tired, beloved, of chafing my heart against the want of you; of squeezing it into little ink drops, and posting it. And I scald alone, here, under the fire of the great moon." ~ Amy Lowell 1874-1925
