September Pagan Challenge #3: Sunrise
I love the colours of sunrise and sunset. It’s like a magical transformation of the sky.
The sky should be blue, grey, blue with fluffy white clouds, or tinged with the subtle colours of sunset. It should never be red and full of fire and smoke as it was recently during the forest fires.
The sun is the source of life, and symbolizes the self and the inner illumination of consciousness and divinity.
The sun “is a nearly perfect sphere of hot plasma, heated to incandescence by nuclear fusion reactions in its core, radiating the energy mainly as visible light, ultraviolet light, and infrared radiation. It is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth. Its diameter is about 1.39 million kilometres (864,000 miles), or 109 times that of Earth. Its mass is about 330,000 times that of Earth; it accounts for about 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System. Roughly three quarters of the Sun’s mass consists of hydrogen (~73%); the rest is mostly helium (~25%), with much smaller quantities of heavier elements, including oxygen, carbon, neon and iron” (Wikipedia)
