The Sun is the symbol of all that is light and joyful, true and invincible and it stands for courage, energy, insight and success. When you stand in the noon-day sun your shadow is the smallest and weakest it will ever be, and you are fully illuminated.
Exploring the Card
The iconography is a little different from the usual motif of a pair of small children frolicking on a fenced green hill. Instead we see Fawkes, the phoenix taking flight into the rising sun, his feathers curling like flames and each of his tail-feathers blazing like a little miniature sun.
Dumbledore’s phoenix is one of the strongest solar/fire symbols that are around in the HP books. He is the light that shines in the darkest places – coming to those that are loyal and true, healing poison and injury, carrying the heaviest loads out of darkness, and gifting people with a song that will lift and open their hearts. All of this really captures the meaning of The Sun as a card.
