Sun Sextile Mars

Sun sextile Mars is a calm, constructive useful energy that acts on thoughts you have, information you find, knowledge that promotes a shift in consciousness. Because your perceptions change -- or you understand "what's really going on" differently -- you make slightly different choices than you intended previously.

This is one of those "minor course correction" moments, because, of course, different choices create different results. This may be so subtle or automatic you don't pay much attention. But momentous events often hinge -- or arise from -- such tiny details. Tracing the chain backward can be fascinating, but you'll rarely bother to do this. None of us do. But this can be "destiny in the making," TBH.

Sun Sextile Mars

The Sun sextile Mars is a wonderfully productive partnership of personal ambition and physical energy. It's your Action Self, your Warrior Spirit, acting as confidante, strategist and intellectual ally. Just imagine the possibilities. You with your vision, linked with this partner and his confidence, courage, zest and endurance. Is there anything this combination can't do? Anything you won't at least try?

How many times have you made excuses about not enough time, not enough energy, not enough knowledge ... which was just camouflage for not enough guts? Well, that rationale just ran out of steam. So, what happens now? What will you do with this? It's a great time to launch projects that take planning and execution, self-assertion and competitive spirit, stamina and focused desire.

* Sun Power -- Sun energy in your horoscope and personality -- What does the Sun represent in Astrology -- and why is it important? ---> It's complicated -- and so are you ---> Astrology understands your personality is a complex, integrated structure. It's composed of different parts, different Inner Selves, that theoretically work together as a whole. Of course that's not always true. (I called it "theoretical" for a reason.) Inner conflict is a huge part of being human.

The Transiting Sun

* Notes on The Transiting Sun ---> The moving picture of you ---> Aspects that involve the Sun ... whether we're speaking of the Sun in your Natal Chart or the transiting Sun in the sky ... always involve issues of self-identity, personal ambition, your willpower, and ways in which you want to have impact on the world ... and feel important.

In Astrology, the Sun symbolizes your self-image and your self-identity. Your Sun Sign, obviously, tells what sign the Sun was traveling through on the day you were born. The Sun in the sky, however, travels through all twelve signs of the Zodiac in the course of a year.

The Sun & Moon in Astrology

* The Sun and Moon in Your Natal Chart -- Two powerful descriptions of you ---> Your two most important Inner Selves ---> Even in the more subtle, introverted signs, like Scorpio, Virgo and Pisces, The Sun's energy in your horoscope is considered powerful, masculine and demonstrative. Its expression can be overwhelmed and disguised by other factors or afflictions in the horoscope, but not easily.

* The Luminaries in Astrology -- The Sun and The Moon -- What are they ... and what's the difference? ---> The Light-givers ---> The Luminaries -- This term refers to The Sun and The Moon in a horoscope -- distinguishing them from the other common elements ... the eight known planets, excluding the Earth.

From the Blogs, Ezines and Elsewhere

From EDA: The Sun ---> Everyday Astrology ---> March 15, 2020 ---> The Sun ---> Just as the Sun is the physical center of our Solar System, so the Sun in Astrology is the center of attention in a horoscope. It provides a starting point for an Astrologer to begin interpreting the essential qualities of a person's character or a situation -- whatever that particular chart happens to examine. The pivotal energy of a person or event starts there -- with the Sun's sign & location.

From EDA: The Sun and The Moon ---> Everyday Astrology ---> March 30, 2020 Sun & Moon ---> The Sun in your horoscope represents your Essential Self, the inner part of your character that defines your personality and ego. It is your basic identity to the world as your life unfolds. Arguably it also describes your spiritual purpose ... your sense of who you are and who you are meant to become. It is your present self reaching into the future as you develop your potential and talents.

About Mars
From the Blogs and Ezines

From EDA: Mars in Astrology ---> Red is a Mars color!! ---> Everyday Astrology February 6, 2020 Mars ---> In Roman mythology, Mars was the God of War, ranked second only to Jupiter, the King of the Gods. To follow the symbolism, once you have enough individual power to assert yourself and affect your surroundings, and enough abundance to feed and support yourself, and the assurance that you deserve to be here, you can turn your attention to other matters.

From EDA: Mars Retrograde -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology October 29, 2020 Mars Rx ---> It's not news. Mars is Retrograde until November 13. It's been in its own shadow since July 25, and will not emerge until January 2. Maybe that bodes well (a little bit) for 2021 being a better year than 2020. It would almost have to be, but we've learned these are times with no guarantees.
