You and your self-expression

All aspects to the Sun affect how the person, entity or event you're examining expresses itself ... and how it is perceived. If you have aspects to the Sun in your Natal Chart -- and chances are you do, an unaspected Sun is rare but not impossible -- it shows influences from your family of Inner Selves that affect your self expression. Planets that aspect your Sun shape your sense of who you are -- your self identity.

Sun aspects show attitudes and interests that help or hinder your ambitions, how you use your will power, the way you invest your vital Sun energy -- and the payoff or problems that come from this.

Like actual members of a human family, the constellation of your Inner Selves, shown by the other planets in your horoscope, form alliances, offer support or get in the way of your Sun self's agenda. The results form the experience of you ... from the inside where you live ... and on the outside, where you are reviewed by and involved with other people.

The head of your Inner Family

Your Sun energy represents your Essential Self ... the head of this inner family and the manager of all these Inner Selves. It's his job (and therefore your job) to work with these components to get his needs met, to do the work on this life's schedule and to create something to show from the investment. The energy and assets of all your Inner Selves are your Sun self's responsibility.

In a Natal Chart, some of these other selves are cooperative, even key, in promoting the Sun self's agenda ... and some aren't. Some really aren't. How well you work with (or work around) all this psycho-political complexity shapes the experience of your life ... and ultimately, the "success" of your life.

Realize your definition of success may not match that of other people, the general public, or values of the culture and society. But whatever the verdict from any of them, aspects to your Sun and the Inner Selves they represent ... the attitudes they show and the different agendas they describe (and pursue) play a central role in whatever happens.

Conjunctions unite and incorporate. Sextiles bring information, perspectives and new opportunities. Squares show interference. Trines promote creativity and higher learning. Oppositions describe blockage and relationship conflicts. Together, they write, in all its glory, the ultimate story of you.

The Sun in Astrology

* 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.

* 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."

* Interpreting the Sun in Your Horoscope ---> The Sun ---> 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 ---> The Sun expressing positively ---> Ambitious, confident, creative, dignified, dynamic, generous, honorable, influential, loyal, noble, a leader ....

The Transiting Sun

* 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.

* Understanding Transiting Sun Energy -- Things to know about the transiting Sun's -- behavior, position and influence ---> The traveling Sun ---> The Sun represents your ego, your basic sense of who you are. In Astrology, the Sun symbolizes your self-image and your self-identity. Your Sun Sign, obviously, tells what sign the Sun was traveling through on the day you were born. The Sun in the sky, however, travels through all twelve signs of the Zodiac in the course of a year.

The Sun & Moon in Astrology

* The Sun and Moon in Your Natal Chart -- Two powerful descriptions of you ---> Your two most important Inner Selves ---> Even in the more subtle, introverted signs, like Scorpio, Virgo and Pisces, The Sun's energy in your horoscope is considered powerful, masculine and demonstrative. Its expression can be overwhelmed and disguised by other factors or afflictions in the horoscope, but not easily.

* The Luminaries in Astrology -- The Sun and The Moon -- What are they ... and what's the difference? ---> The Light-givers ---> The Luminaries -- This term refers to The Sun and The Moon in a horoscope -- distinguishing them from the other common elements ... the eight known planets, excluding the Earth. The term luminary suggests The Sun and The Moon are both sources of light ....

From the Blogs, Ezines and Elsewhere

From EDA: The Sun ---> Everyday Astrology ---> March 15, 2020 ---> The Sun ---> Just as the Sun is the physical center of our Solar System, so the Sun in Astrology is the center of attention in a horoscope. It provides a starting point for an Astrologer to begin interpreting the essential qualities of a person's character or a situation -- whatever that particular chart happens to examine. The pivotal energy of a person or event starts there -- with the Sun's sign & location.

From EDA: The Sun and The Moon ---> Everyday Astrology ---> March 30, 2020 Sun & Moon ---> The Sun in your horoscope represents your Essential Self, the inner part of your character that defines your personality and ego. It is your basic identity to the world as your life unfolds. Arguably it also describes your spiritual purpose ... your sense of who you are and who you are meant to become. It is your present self reaching into the future as you develop your potential and talents.
