Every day we rise and wake with the sun, and every night we watch it descend to cast the world into darkness. It is the source of life-giving energy for all things on earth, it is truly the center of our universe, and without it’s light we would surely lose all life. For these reasons the sun symbolizes vitality, power, illumination, and rebirth. Where once people worshiped the sun as a deity, we now look to it as a symbol to guide and give us strength.
