Samples from our open Sun articles
Lots of people, even those who say they don't believe in astrology, know their Sun Sign. The Sun spends about a month in each sign, and unless you were "born on the cusp" -- on a day very near the point when the Sun moved from one sign to another, it's pretty easy to place you in one of the categories based only on your birthday. That Zodiac sign -- the one you name when someone asks, "What's your sign?" is your Sun Sign.
---> Sun Sign / Moon Sign
In Astrology, the qualities of your Sun Sign will describe your interests, your attitudes and values, the way you work to achieve your ambitions, your motives for setting those ambitions in the first place, and the essence of the roles you fill as a self-aware, spiritual being. Thus, in Astrology, the Sun Sign is an important component in describing who you are ... and who you were meant to be.
---> Where Is the Sunshine In YOUR Life?
Without the presence of the Sun, the Earth would be a cold, dead rock ... for life as we know it would not exist here. There would be no center to hold the planets in their orbits as they revolve. Instead, the planets would be so much space debris, floating aimlessly until something ... some other star perhaps pulled its mass into its gravitational field ... or until it was absorbed by one of the many black holes in space.
---> His Majesty ... The Sun
Along with the Moon, the Sun is considered one of the Luminaries, the light-givers. One shines by day, the other by night. The planets in the night sky, while they may appear to twinkle like stars, they don't actually shine or give off their own light. Neither does the Moon, for that matter.
---> Basic Stuff About The Sun
Just as the Sun is the center of our Solar System, the Sun in your horoscope is technically the most important element there, although in reality -- and in practice -- there are a number of qualifications on this point.
---> Quick Notes on the Sun
In Astrology, the Sun represents your central ego, your sense of identity, your consciousness of yourself as a physical and spiritual entity. It also symbolizes things like your willpower, your ambitions, your sense of purpose. It gives information about how you express yourself, how you see yourself -- and how others see you, too.
---> The Sun
A lot of things can influence the expression of your Sun energy, particularly your Sun Sign traits, but generally the list of character qualities that come with your Sun Sign energy should feel natural to you ... and be easily recognized as "basically you" by people who know you. This wide, familiar correlation is what keeps Sun Sign astrology so prominent in mainstream culture. It's a tiny piece of what Astrology's wisdom can do ... but it's a valid starting point, and so it continues to thrive.
---> Your Natal Sun
The horoscope is divided into twelve different sections called houses ... which represent the twelve major divisions of life interest and experience. The house in your Natal Chart which contains the Sun.a shows the area of life and the kind of concerns where you want attention -- and where you pay a lot of attention, where you want to be noticed, where you want to be considered important.
---> The House of the Rising Sun
Astrologers consider The Sun one of the three most essential elements in any horoscope ... along with the Moon and the Ascendant. To some, the Sun is the most important citizen in the celestial map. Others regard it with less reverence, but it is the centerpiece ... the starting point ... of any chart. It's position in the Zodiac on the day you were born is what determines your "Sun Sign" ... which is what people mean when they say someone is a Gemini, or a Capricorn or a Libra.
