We need to use these resources sparingly and in a sustainable manner. Acknowledge the vital part the sun plays in the Universe. Greet the sun with gratitude each morning and give thanks for its warmth and energy. The sun controls the seasons. Learn to sense the different stages and how they affect your life and your own energy. The sun's energy is healing and can help lift your mood. Simply by sitting in a sunny spot and imagining the warmth and light of the sun flowing through your body can bring relief from pain and can make you feel happier.

If you spend most of your day indoors, start putting aside time daily to sit or walk in the sunlight. You must also understand that the
powerful rays of the sun can be harmful if not respected. If you spend too much time in the sun this card could be a warning to you to take the necessary precautions in protecting your skin from the harsher rays of the sun.
