"The light of discovery shines down on the innocent."


When people look at the Sun, they know they are looking at greatness. The Sun is full of vitality, charisma, and enlightenment. Their natural leadership and talent for guidance often finds them inspiring others to be the best that they can be. Many Suns possess a great store of energy, useful for keeping up in the dark places where others may begin to falter. Reason and logic may count as other gifts that the Sun possesses. The Sun's confidence and self-assurance is a great asset to them and others. But just as the Sun can light the way, those who get too close can become blinded and consumed by them.

Sometimes, too, the Sun can blind itself, or get caught in an eclipse. Such Reversed Suns find themselves at a loss in terms of reason and rationality, and where once the answers came clearly, they now come twisted and warped or not at all. This may lead to a certain cynicism that strips them of their wide-eyed joie de vivre, and when the light within them dies, they take the light around them away, too.
