The Astrological Planet
The Sun
 

The Astrological Planet The SunActually, The Sun has no visible motion, although we know it moves because nothing in the universe can hold its place by standing still. However, ancient astrology dealt with things as they appear rather than as they are. For example, just as the wind which blows South was to the ancients the North wind because it came out of the North. Therefore, when astrology speaks of The Sun's motion we must not overlook the fact that what we actually mean is the Earth's motion which we measure by or describe in the terms of the apparent motion of The Sun. That the ancient masters knew this, can be seen in the order of the planetary hours: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus -- the placing of The Sun between Mars and Venus clearly showing that it represents the Earth in this sequence.

Astrological Influences of The Sun

The Sun is the most important influence streaming down from the celestial heavens. Without The Sun on Earth, there is no life. So it is true of our Sun in our Sun Signs.

The Sun represents the Spirit, our Divine Spirit, our Father. With that it carries our strength, vitality, will power, and the fire within us to propel us forward in our lives. Without it, we can do nothing. The Sun is “the circle of Spirit.” It receives its life-giving force from the Infinite Source at The Sun’s center.

The Sun serves as your guide through your life and where it is positioned in your Natal Chart is where you must pay particular attention. The Sun stands for “You!”  It is showing You what you must become, your greater purpose, in your unique house and sign! This is your road map to your individual Self, with the help of Spirit. The Sun in your chart will point you to where you will find fullness in life and where your true Spirit will find full expression of its divine gifts.

The Sun is also the "Light-Bringer" and illuminates us. The Sun in your chart casts its illumination and light to wake up your consciousness. It is awareness at its fullest and it’s exaltation is when we recognize where our true purpose lies.

This is The Sun’s highest power in our lives. Waking us up from a deep sleep and carrying us to the top of the sky with its loving rays! The Sun is our ultimate, realized Self. With the guiding light of the Spirit, we climb to the top through understanding and complete our earthly mission.

The Sun is the planet of the Self.  It represents the Self, ones own personality and ego. That is to say, that which makes us unique individuals. The Sun helps us to achieve our creative abilities. As the Spirit creates, so The Sun, representing the Spirit, helps us to be creative.

The Sun empowers the individual to meet the challenges and overcome the obstacles of every day life. When we become The Sun in our sun sign, we have achieved the greatest task on our journey through the Natal Chart of our “life!”

Mythology of The Sun

Our solar system's star, the Sun, has inspired mythological stories in cultures around the world. To the Egyptians it was Ra, Amen, Aten, or Osiris, each with a different religious significance. The winged globe in Egyptian art is a familiar representation of the solar orb. Atenism, the first impersonal concept of the Deity, worshipped only "the power which came from The Sun," and forbade any emblem or idol that would tend to substitute a symbol for the thing itself.

To The Persian the Sun was Mithras; to the Hindu, Brahma; to the Chaldean, Bel; and to the Greek, Adonis and Apollo. In Free-masonry Sol-om-on, the name of The Sun in three languages, is an expression of light.

Likewise, many other ancient cultures like the Aztecs of México, Native American tribes of North America, and the Chinese also worshipped the Sun. They built stone structures or modified natural rock formations to observe it and our Moon. They charted the seasons, created calendars, and monitored solar and lunar eclipses. These architectural sites show evidence of knowledge and deliberate alignments to astronomical phenomena such as sunrises, moonrises, moonsets, even the stars and the planets.

"God created the stars and the heaven for more than the sake of beauty. He gave them to us for interpretation so that we may live a more productive life. Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person, being the master over heaven and earth, by means of his will, is a Magus, and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom."
-- Paracelsus
