I lost so many friends I loved deeply in 80s and early 90s. Never forget.

A powerful symbol of light and fertility, The Sun heralds a season blessed with joyous enlightenment, robust health and emotional harmony. As the glorious rays of cleansing sunrise spill light into the shadows of your heart and life, so the warmth must reach into your very bones and energize your spirit.
It is time to let the inner sun at the core of your being shine for all to see, bringing warmth, light and harmony to others, and by doing so to connect with the consciousness of the universal mind.
The Sun also beckons you to see beyond the noise and clatter of human reality and become aware of the vastness and generosity of the cosmic soul.
A union with the wonder of life. Bliss. Health and happiness. Spiritual teaching. A rare heart. Transcendent joy.
Access to the divine.
