What This Card Means to Me

No storm or night lasts forever. Eventually it comes to an end and the sunlight breaks through. This is the time to celebrate, be grateful, and acknowledge the truths before us. It’s not about ego or arrogance, but rather confidence in knowing that no matter what comes you can face it, get through it, and survive.
