The Green Sun
Today our passage along the Path of Suns takes us to the Green Sun. Life, growth, flourishing, and prosperity are the purview of the Green Sun. Many people see it as presiding over success and victory as well. The Green Sun represents the present, and its number is 2, representing union and biological pairing and parenting—the fusion of two bloodlines to continue the cycle of life.
Cherulis wards the Green Sun. Genderless (or perhaps, all-gendered), Cherulis is an androgynous figure of expansive beauty. At the same time, Cherulis claims to be a multitude given singular form, speaking with many voices at once. Cherulis has no permanent home and no fortress. The Green’s gateway has no physical manifestation for them to guard (although it still exists metaphorically and metaphysically). Instead, Cherulis wanders the realm of the Green Sun, preaching whispered sermons about the purity and sanctity of life.
The Green is a realm of forests, fields, and wilderness verdant to the point of danger. Stand still too long and you might be engulfed by the growth spurt of a copse of trees or a snaking vine. Animals and even humans spontaneously erupt from hidden seed pods within the burgeoning ground. The Green bursts with life, and life is not gentle. The people of the Green Sun are nomads—there are no cities or towns here. No artificial structures at all, in fact. The Nightside version of the Green Sun, and the small, parasitic universes that cling to it and feed upon it, are topics for a later date.
