Conceitedness, Lack of clarity, Pessimism, Sadness, Unrealistic expectations, Low vitality

Card in Reverse:

The Sun card in reverse can suggest that you are feeling low in energy. You might be experiencing some setbacks at this time, causing you to feel pessimistic and less confident.
It's okay to have dips every now and then. No one feels happy and good all the time. In order to appreciate the highs, we must also experience the lows.
Take some time for yourself to practice self care. Do things that make you happy, even if you don't feel like doing them. Journal about how you're feeling and take baby steps towards a goal you might have.
The Sun card could also mean that you may be feeling overly optimistic about something, and are having unrealistic expectations. Take a deep breath and step back, try to look at everything in a third person's perspective. Sometimes we can get really excited about something, only for it to not turn out the way we hoped. Go into it with an open mind.
