The Sun
Ruler of Leo
Symbol of Your Essential Self

by Rebecca Brents


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

Along with the Moon and the Ascendant (or Rising Sign -- the sign of the Zodiac literally rising on the eastern horizon at the time of birth) the Sun is one of the three most significant components in a horoscope, and arguably the most important.

Its position in the Zodiac when you were born determines your "Sun Sign" in Astrology ... and this is what people mean when they say someone is an Aries or an Aquarius or a Scorpio. This placement in Astrology, by sign and house, describes the qualities of your basic ego, your individual self-expression, your personal identity. This is what I identify as the core personality, and I call it the "essential self."

It represents:

  • The inner self
  • Your inherent sense of purpose, destiny or importance in life
  • Ego, drive, willpower, ambition
  • Your individual self-expression
  • Your sense of personal identity
  • What you strive to be
  • How you seek to gain attention

When it is comfortable and expressing positively, Sun energy is ambitious, self-confident, generous, determined, proud, vital, playful, powerful, authentic and charismatic -- within the characteristics and qualities of its sign energy.

When it is uncomfortable and expressing under stress, Sun energy is arrogant, conceited, self-absorbed, dictatorial, haughty, disdainful, overbearing, pompous, tyrannical and vain -- again within the characteristics and qualities of its sign energy.

The Lunar Light

The Moon Position Presently Indicates:
You feel restless, irritable and ready for a lot more freedom. But family connections, responsibilities at home and your desire for the security of well-known surroundings keep you from throwing caution to the wind ... even though they are part of the reason you feel so tied down and fenced in.

The Next Lunar Aspect Will Be:
The Moon in Leo Sextile The Sun in Gemini on Mon 29th of May 2017 at 9:18 pm MDT

The Moon Will Be Void of Course:
from Wed 31st of May 2017 at 5:15 am MDT until it enters Virgo on Wed 31st of May 2017 at 10:16 am MDT
