I wish I had a story about The Sun card, but truth is it’s always seemed to good to be true. There is something of a temporary happiness to it, that I never can quite take it seriously. It never feels real. This may be my projections, or the transient nature of happiness itself.

Maybe it’s about the success we don’t quite celebrate fully, or the abundance we half acknowledge, or the joy we take for granted when we feel it. Maybe it’s a call to mindfulness to all that’s wonderful here and now. And maybe it’s suggesting we take courage. 

Either way, when I was listening to music and heard What I Wouldn’t Do by “A Fine Frenzy” it felt like the right song for this card. There’s an innocent idealism in this song, a sweetness that said “Sun” to me. I hope you enjoy. 

If we were children I would bake you a mud pie

Warm and brown beneath the sun

Never learned to climb a tree but I would try

Just to show you what I’d done


Oh what I wouldn’t do

If I had you, babe, I had you

Oh what I wouldn’t do

If I had you, babe


If I were old, my dearest, you would be older

But I would crawl upon your lap

Wrap a blanket round our frail little shoulders

And I’d die happily like that


Oh what I wouldn’t do

If I had you, babe, I had you

Oh what I wouldn’t do

If I had you, babe, if I had you


So lace your hands round the small of my back and I will kiss you like a king

I will be your bride, I’ll keep you warm at night

I will sing, I will sing


It was now and we were both in the same place

Didn’t know how to say the words

With my heart ticking like a bomb in a birdcage

I left before someone got hurt


‘Cause it was what I wouldn’t do

If I had you, babe, I had you

It was what I wouldn’t do

When I had you, babe, when I had you
