The Sun and its many guises in the Zodiac

Introduction

Your Sun energy defines the solid center of your spiritual identity. It describes the substance of who you are as a character, as a person, as a spiritual being.

In Astrology, your Sun energy defines your life purpose, your central essence ... the power that fashions and expresses the singular presence that is completely, uniquely you.

The Sun in your horoscope stands for a lot of things like self-realization, self-determination, self-actualization ... lots of things beginning with "self" ... like self-interest. It is the awareness that you exist, that you have power, that you can have a impact on the world and on others, that you have a right -- even a responsibility -- to be here ... and that you matter.

Your Sun energy wants you to understand yourself -- and use your power wisely. It wants you to appreciate your abilities and use them productively. It affirms that your perspective has value, that it contributes to the world and that it fulfills the purpose for which you exist. It wants you to honor yourself and know that your place in reality is sacred. It's yours. It's significant.

Sometimes Life cooperates in this; sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes your different Inner Selves cooperate in this; sometimes they don't. You -- and your Sun energy -- will act one way when things are going well. You will both become "a completely different person" when they aren't.

Basic Stuff About The Sun ---> The Sun is the center of ... well, everything ---> * The Sun is the center of our Solar System. It is the only actual star in your horoscope. Eight of the other celestial elements are planets and the Moon is a satellite of Earth.

Quick Notes on the Sun -- It gives you the basics -- and saves a lot of time ---> The center of it all ---> 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.

* 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.

* The Sun in General -- Your Essential Self of Power, Will, Vitality and Ambition ---> The essence of you -- In Astrology, The Sun represents your basic core identity. It gives information about the qualities of your ego, your individual self-expression, your self-image and your sense of personal identity. It depicts both the essence of who you are and how you define and reveal yourself to the rest of the world.

* The Sun -- Ruler of Leo -- Symbol of Your Essential Self ---> The Sun, without which life on Earth could not exist as we know it, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's basic personality, the underlying canvas upon which all the other colors and elements of his character are co-mingled and combined.

* The Sun in Astrology -- The Central Star in the Horoscope -- Its Meaning and Significance ---> The central player -- A simple and very general way of working with Astrology centers on the fact that the Sun is the central feature of a horoscope. -- There is a whole industry of mainstream astrology built around this idea, from the little three line "daily horoscopes" in newspapers and magazines to the little dime-store booklets that purport to "tell you more" about who you are, using your Sun sign characteristics as the basis of their information.
