*The Sun - Part 2*
Solar people are not especially modest. They may even be boastful
and arrogant, totally wrapped up in themselves. Sometimes they
may overestimate their own worth, not feeling it necessary to
do anything to justify their high self-opinion. However, in truth
this is not really in the character of the Sun, which is an active
force concerned with accomplishment. When a solar personality
exhibits this kind of problem, there is usually something else
It is often difficult to get Solar types to co-operate
with others in a team effort. They often feel that they have
to be at the forefront or they would rather nothing to do with
The Sun is also physical energy, and if it is weakened
through contact with a symbol that denies energy, there will
be a decline in the individual’s physical energy level.
This most marked with Sun-Neptune contacts. Difficulties with
solar energy in the chart can indicate periods of physical illness.
The Sun can certainly be an index to physical vitality.
speaking, masculinity is an aspect of yang. Therefore the Sun,
along with mars, represents masculinity. Traditionally, the Sun
was considered as having to do with persons of the male sex.
However as sex roles continue to shift, a growing number of women
exhibit Solar personalities, and thereby serve as representatives
of Solar energy in the lives of others.
One classic male function
that is associated with the Sun is fatherhood. The Sun shares
this function with Saturn, but the two represent very different
facets. The situation of the Sun in the birthchart often relates
to the individual’s experience
of the father – not necessarily the actual father, but all
the people who played that role. As such the Sun represents the
experience of being fathered, not necessarily the objective truth
about one’s father. The sun represents the father’s
function as a shaper of the will, particularly the will to be
a free, independent source of power and energy on one'’ own
The Sun seems to act as a strong integrating factor in
the overall map, the leader or conductor of the orchestra. It
seems to describe the ‘core’, the heart of the person
and is rather as the nucleus is to the atom.
the Sun affect the way we identify ourselves. Do we have a ‘good’ opinion
of ourselves or do we have a poor self-image? Planets aspecting
our Sun will also either tend to compound or deny our ‘Sun
sign’. Jupiter tightly
aspecting the Sun might exaggerate our Sun sign characteristics
whilst Saturn might inhibit or suppress them or urge us to define
more closely just what these characteristics are. Anything that
is touched by the Sun is illuminated and warmed. Whatever the
planet is, the spotlight is put upon it and it is given both power
and strength. Since aspects work both ways, aspects to the Sun,
especially ‘hard’ aspects from difficult planets seem
to sap the strength and power of whatever the Sun individually
Whilst the Ascendant and its ruler seem to describe
our journey in life, the vehicle we are travelling in and the
way we have to go, the Sun is more descriptive of the true purpose
of our going, as well as some of the challenges we are likely
to meet along the way.
The Sun can also be considered as to indicate
our purpose, and the lifetime goal and task of recognising and
consciously living that purpose. The house and sign of the Sun
are certainly areas which we find important, and usually the most
important areas of life.
The Sun also symbolises the process of
finding one’s identity.
Planets aspecting the Sun will not only help define what the
hero looks like but will describe the challenges that this inner
core of the person will meet. All the helpful and not so helpful
inner figures who may accelerate or impede the process.
