The Sun
Just the Facts
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.

* 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.

* 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. Wherever the Sun is involved, you are looking to shine.
