Do You Have the Sun in Aries?
What happens when you're born right on the cusp?

What's your sign?

Do you have The Sun in Aries? If you were born between March 20 and April 20, you likely have an Aries Sun in your horoscope. But the beginning and end dates can be a little ragged because the celestial schedule and human calendars don't always synch.

If you're one of those special souls born near a sign change ... "born on the cusp", you'll need a real astrologer ... or an internet computer program ... to cast your horoscope and say for sure. (If you're a Premium Member, you can drop me a note and ask. I'll be happy to tell you.)

Your Sun Sign is the one you name when someone asks ... "What's your sign?" Everyone has one Sun sign ... even those complex souls born on the cusp. But, if you were born on a day when the Sun changed signs, people born early ... before the sign change ... will be one sign. People born later ... after the sign change ... will be the other.

It's nice to know for sure ...

Does this matter? Well, yes ... and no. It's nice to know which sign you are for sure. But the complexities of cusp-born people is a discussion all by itself, and in real life, the subtleties of personalities born on either side of a sign change will be very discreet.

If you're a Pisces born on the day the Sun moved into Aries, your character will be a little more reclusive and mystical than your later born Aries star siblings. But they will still show a lot of Pisces qualities in their make-up, and you will show a lot of Aries in yours.

The same, of course, holds at the other end of the sign. If you're a Taurus born on a day that began with the Sun in Aries, there's an extra touch of patience and a love of easy-living in you ... and more fixity of purpose in your character than in your earlier-born Aries kin.

But you still have a lot in common. You have plenty of Aries fire and passion in your make-up and they have an extra touch of practical Taurus attitudes and aesthetic appreciation in theirs. The difference is mostly technical ... a matter of very tiny degrees.

Other considerations

Astrology, like life, operates on a continuum. There may be dividing lines for the sake of distinction and organization. Cusp divisions are like this. But there are still many shades of gray. And in the borderlands betwixt and between, there's plenty of overlap.

Still, your Sun's position, because it's fairly predictable, is the easiest celestial position to track, which is why "thumbnail astrology" depends so heavily on Sun Sign qualities to describe a person's character. But, although the Sun is undeniably a major player in Astrology, it is only one of several dozen important indications of character in your Natal Chart.

Some of these other points, depending on what else resides in your horoscope, can be extremely influential in fashioning the final result.

The Sun and its meaning are the centerpiece in the structure of Astrology.

* What Does The Sun Represent -- in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> The center of everything ---> The Sun is the unmistakable center of our Solar System. Likewise, the Sun is your horoscope, with its sign placement and house position, describes the core essence of your character..

* Introducing the Sun -- What it means in plain English ---> Getting started ---> Unless you've lived under a rock all your life, there's a good chance you've at least met some very basic ideas from Astrology, one of which is apt to be your Sun Sign. This is the Zodiac sign you name when someone asks, "What's your sign?" and you answer, "I'm a Cancer." or "I'm a Virgo." or "I'm a Sagittarius."

More about Aries

* The Fire Signs -- Aries, Leo, Sagittarius ---> Fire Signs get things done -- The Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius represent energy that is directly involved with action, leadership, personal charisma, and self-expression. These signs are self-confident, dramatic, self-promoting, exuberant, vivacious, and captivating.

* Masculine Signs -- The Fire and Air Signs ---> Signs of Life and Intellect -- Essentially, "masculine" signs prefer to seize the moment, make things happen and change what doesn't suit them with their actions and choices. Masculine sign people are life's movers-and-shakers. Masculine signs are active, spontaneous, overtly ambitious and more interested in imposing their will on the world than adjusting to what exists. Masculine signs deal with force, identity and intellect.

Your Aries House -- The Starting Point -- Where Action Begins ---> The starting point of life -- The house in your Natal Chart with Aries on the cusp is the starting point for your life's action. It's where things begin. When you're ready to launch new ventures or start new interests, this is the first place you look for motive and inspiration.
