If you have been suffering such defeats, it might be hard to see the bright side of things. But try asking yourself this question. Why do you still believe the sun shines behind the thickest layer of clouds? Even if the clouds block it out, you know the sun is still there.

All clouds have their silver lining, and the Sun reversed tarot card meaning implies that things will seem bad for now. But it will turn around! Every time the clouds block out your desires and goals, believe!
