Most of us know which zodiac sign we were born under; even those skeptical ones, who do not care much about neither astrology nor horoscopes. Those who do would ascribe things they do or say, the way they react and behave or anything else, simply to their ruling zodiac sign.
They also tend to ascribe zodiac signs related meanings to others and interpret their actions according to their zodiac sign.
You know, people would say something like, “She is so indecisive, a typical Libra.” They would as well say, “He is so proud and generous, a real Leo.” Sometimes even physical appearances could be ascribed to someone’s zodiac sign.
Well, although there is definitely some truth in these examples, things are much more complex. The ruling zodiac sign solely does not determine one’s astrological profile.
However, there is something in there. Your zodiac sign is your base and your core, in a way. It has great effect on your personality as a whole. It is molded and shaped by other factors, as well.
Analyzing one’s personal horoscope is a complicated task that requires a lot of knowledge and practice. In order to understand your stars, you should start from the center, the place of the Sun in your natal chart.
Sun and Horoscope
The Sun, as primary heavenly body, if we speak in terms of Western astrology, which is focused on the Sun as the center of our own universe, represents the most important factor in a personalized natal chart and horoscope and on a wider plan.
The answer to a common question about what you are in the horoscope is actually the answer to a question about the position of the Sun in your birth chart. This means the Sun determines your ruling, native zodiac sign.
In astrology, the Sun is one of the planets, just as the Moon is seen as one, although we know that astronomically, these two are not planets.
However, in astrology, we count ten astrological planets. The first five, amongst which we find the Sun, are so-called ‘personal’ planets. They are the most important to look out for in your birth chart. These planets are major factors in the process of shaping up one as an individual personality.
The position of these personal planets determine who you are, how you see the world, how you absorb impressions from your surroundings, how you react, behave and act. The Sun and the Moon, being the bright ones, the Luminaries, are perhaps the most important.
They represent visible and invisible, active and reactive, expressive and passive parts of one’s personality.
The day planet, the bright, glorious and mighty Sun thus represents what people see about you. It symbolizes vitality and life energy, drive, ambition, personal dignity, self-respect. The Sun is warm, masculine principle that rules our Ego and our conscious mind.
The Sun lightens our personality and let us shine in the world. The way we are going to shine greatly depends on the zodiac sign the Sun sits in one’s natal chart.
The Sun is the center to everything, on a minor, personal and a major plan. The Sun carries many meanings and a lot of symbolism, so it could represent various ideas and concepts. It symbolizes the figure of a father and a husband in a female horoscope, any leader or ruler if we analyze astrological chart of a country, for example.
The Sun symbolizes extravagance, prestige, optimism, glory, royalty, authority.
Sometimes, in conjunction with another planet in a natal chart, the Sun defines even physical appearance of a person and shape up the perception others have about that person. The Sun rules over the sign of Leo. Its element is Fire and its colors are yellow, gold and orange.
Its impact in a personalized horoscope is the strongest from 22 to 42 year of life.
Of course, interpretation of the impact of the Sun in a personal horoscope goes beyond the basic meanings. The Sun determines your ruling sign, which is, in a way, the core of your astrological personality.
However, there are no ideal representatives of any sign; there is no person who is only a Libra, for example, but this person also has mixed influences of other signs and planets in his or hers horoscope.
