In the Greenwood, Sun is card 20, adjoining World. The figure is open, to receive the warmth of the sun and the abundance of life. I didn't notice until my 40's that my life was a paler shade of grey. Great husband, great job, lovely home...it was me, I was grey.
I'm reminded by this card I'm now officially in my 60's (the new 40's) I have a great husband, great job, lovely home...it is me who has changed, I am sunkissed and inner-lifekissed and even if the mundane world went in the can, I wouldn't, nay couldn't, return to grey. Life is good.

Tarot opened previously closed doors to my own heart with it's merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
