From an astrological point of view, planets represent essence of a human being; its conscious and sub-conscious part, emotional self, manifesting and hidden qualities and beyond.
According to astrology, planets greatly affect our lives.
We already know that heavenly bodies and cosmic activity have great impact upon our own planet, as a physical entity. However, we know less about mystical influence of planets on individual lives and human destinies.
Astrology is an old path; modern astrology is considered a pseudo science, because it does not offer conventional explanations such as officially acknowledged, exact sciences of the day.
However, it was much appreciated in old days. It was considered crucial in understanding the world. Many notable figures of the past were astrologers and many great leaders of the past heavily relied on their interpretations.
In modern times, astrology is separated from astronomy. The aims of both of these great disciplines are different. It is important to know that astrology has all elements of a science, including rules, methodology, principles and great knowledge upon everything else is based.
Although many people are skeptical about astrological analyses, astrology is still practiced all over the world.
There are different types of astrology, in different parts of the world. We talk about modern, Western astrology, which originates from ancient Orient, from Persia. It has a very long tradition of practice, regardless of phases of reception and transformations of the discipline as it is.
Modern astrology is focused around the Sun, as the main principle and it studies the activity of the Solar system’s planets.
Modern astrology counts ten planets, amongst which the Sun and the Moon.
These are the Luminaries and they technically are not planets, but astrology counts them as ones. They are also two of the so-called ‘personal planets’, meaning they play a very important role in natal astrology and creation of personalized, individual horoscopes.
Let us focus on the brightest of the stars.
Sun and Horoscope
The Sun hold central place in modern astrology. It is the brightest of the stars and it represents life.
Not only in astrology, but in mythology and all sorts of belief and spiritual systems; the Sun has always been associated with the energy of life, with divine power and light as it is.
The Sun is indeed our main source of light and it does give life to every living thing on our planet. No wonder it also represents the core of an individual, as he or she is seen in astrology.
In natal astrology, which we are interested in, the Sun represents your native sign. The place it holds in your birth chart, meaning the one it occupied at the time you were born, represents the sign you were born under. However, astrological charts are complex and there are many more elements to be considered.
It means that your Sun sign does not solely determine who you are and what your life is going to be.
It is also important to know the house the Sun occupies in a birth chart, as well as what aspects are there with other planets. Each element of a birth chart plays a role. However, the Sun is the center.
The Sun represents your main source of energy. It represents vitality, health, your basic qualities, and your conscious mind. It represents your manifesting energy; the way you present yourself in the world. It is about how the world sees you in return, as well.
The Sun is life-giving force and a personal light. The sign it sits in a birth chart represents the way this energy is going to manifest itself; the house it stays in represents the field of life you find motivation and strength within.
This is why some people find strength in family and others in their occupation. This is why some people are loud and daring, while others are calculated and more tactful.
Of course, all other elements affect one’s astrological self and his or hers fate. If the Sun is in favorable aspects, its beautiful, bright energy lows free and one can easily and smoothly grow, develop his or hers talents and find comfort and strength in certain areas of their life.
If aspects are bad, a person experiences difficulties in channeling their life energy and they cannot find a fixed source of strength.
The Sun is a masculine principle. It rules over the sign of Leo, its colors are gold, yellow and orange. The Sun represents a father and a man in female horoscopes, as well. The Sun represents our Ego, our potentials, our basic attitude and view on life.
The Sun as seen in an individual’s horoscope, tells about our strength of character and the level of our self-awareness.
The position of the Sun represents our ambitions, our need to prove our talents, our need to develop our skills. It also represents our physical strength, health and vitality.
The Sun symbolizes nobility, royalty, dignity, prestige, bravery, open-heartedness, generosity, glory and success. It corresponds with rather impressive types of people such as kings, emperors, leaders, warriors, famous, notable, influential and authority figures in general.
The Sun in a natal chart is your personality, Ego and your potentials. Its role is to help in manifesting symbolic qualities of the sign it sits in, your native sign. Your native sign could be considered main channel of manifesting the Sun energy, as well. The two are inseparable elements as seen in a personal horoscope.
