Where the Moon focuses on Mother, women in your life and the subconscious, the Sun can portray the Father, other males in your life and consciousness .
Often praise and recognition comes as you finally get your day in the Sun. The child can symbolize rebirth in the same way that dreaming of an Unknown Child shows a new and emerging side of you.

In dreams, it is important to note whether it is day or night. Dreams of doing anything during daylight often show that you are becoming conscious of what you are exploring.

The Sun rises and sets off a chain reaction of abundance. Each plant opens its tiny solar panels to take in the energy that begins a great carbon consumption cycle the world over. If you too rise like the Sun each day with a focus on just shining your abundance out into the world, you can recharge and renew your faith in the goodness of life each and every day.
All men and women would do well to develop the feminine aspect of sensitivity and introspection and the masculine traits of assertiveness.
