Horoscopes have always been interesting to people, regardless of if they believe these are for real or not. Horoscopes are not only those few lines you read about in your daily newsfeed.
There are several different types of horoscopes, in fact.
We are mostly interested into natal astrology and personalized horoscopes, based on careful and detailed analyses of natal charts.
Natal charts show positions of planets at the time you were born. You have to give an astrologer your date, time and place of birth, in order to get your birth chart done. You can easily calculate it online and get the graphic scheme instantly.
However, analyzing a birth chart is a true art. One has to know a lot about astrology as a discipline, in order to properly analyze a natal chart and create a horoscope.
There are many elements to pay attention to and all of them should be seen as a part of a complex image. Planets, zodiac signs, houses, aspects…these are all very important things to look out for when creating a personalized horoscope.
Good astrologers possess great knowledge about planetary influence over our lives and they have practice in using astrological methods.
Horoscopes are like astrological timelines of people, to say so. Each of the elements in a birth chart affects one’s horoscope and actually creates specific potentials for the person in question. Knowing your potentials is the first step towards using them the best way you can.
We are going to talk about the first and the most important element of a birth chart and it is the Sun.
Sun and Horoscope
The glorious Sun is one of ‘personal planets’, the ones that determine your essential personal traits, temperament and character. Besides the Sun, personal planets are the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. Although you certainly know the Sun and the Moon are not planets ‘for real’, in astrology they are seen as ones.
They are the first and the most important elements to look out for in a natal chart. The Sun is known as the ‘king of the day’.
Over one earthly year period, the Sun travels through the entire Zodiac. The Sun rules the sign of Leo and we are about to talk about the Sun in Leo more a bit later. The Sun is associated with glory, dignity, royal attitude and nobility, which are as well ideas associated with the sign of Leo.
The Sun is a masculine principle and it represents male figures in a personalized horoscope. In a female horoscope, it stands for a father and/or a type of men that attract the woman.
The Sun is the main source of light and life, so it is closely related to the very idea of the life itself. The Sun reflects ones conscious mind, needs, desires and thoughts you are well aware of. It shapes up your temperament; it gives you certain energy and makes you a person of certain attitude and qualities.
The Sun is everything that is visible and noticeable about you; it shines and it lightens everything. The Sun represents your true self, your ambitions, efforts and everything else.
One should never try to work against attributes of the Sun as they were given, because it means he or she literally suppresses everything that stars offered them, which can cause only negative effects. If you reject the energy the Sun gives you, you surround yourself with shadows and you fall into darkness.
The Sun in your natal chart is your essence and you should nurture it and use and handle its energy the best way possible.
The Sun is associated with the principle of vitality, with health, strength, power, action, with your heart. It is associated with your body frame and specifically to your back. Colors associated with the Sun are yellow, orange and gold. The metal associated with the Sun is, well, also gold.
The Sun is also related to the idea of rebirth, longevity and eternity of life, since it rises over again, endlessly. The Sun is the light of the day.
In horoscope, the Sun actually determines your ruling zodiac sign. That is the sign you were born under. So far, we have learned that your native sign does not determine who you are and what is your life like solely, but it creates specific, unique personality in aspects and relations with other elements in a natal chart.
This means that if you are a Leo in horoscope, it does not mean you carry only Leo’s attributes and traits.
The Sun in a natal chart shapes up your core, to say so, your active principle, your conscious mind. The Sun is your individuality; it is your representation in the world. The Sun determines our view on life and our perception of life in total.
Essential nature of the Sun could take form that favors free and natural expression of the Sun’s qualities or vice versa; these qualities could be blocked and poorly channeled.
