Jupiter in Cancer is squaring my Aries Sun while Uranus in Aries is conjunct my Sun. As Uranus has been retrograde, it will back up over my Sun for its second run-in. Whew , I have gotten a bit of a break from Pluto, though it’s still technically squaring my Sun but not as close as Jupiter.
So what is the Sun, astrologically that is? It’s your core, deep down inside that we are to blossom into. Your life force. Your center. Literally the heart of you. The Sun is rules by the sign Leo and Leo rules the heart. It makes perfect sense because without the rays of the Sun there would be no life on earth. And for life on Earth, at least for mammals, no heartbeat means no life. The Sun is also where you must shine to feel alive. This is something I’m still learning about…well actually all of astrology. lol
One of my favorite astrologers Donna van Toen mentioned in her tidbits of wisdom she offers from time to time “the Sun is not “what you are”; it’s what you’re in the process of becoming…” I do believe that is true.
Yeah, my Aries Sun being pummeled into a new form, now and will be for the next 2-3 of years. But you know what? It needs it. Why? My Aries Sun is buried deep in the 8th house. Yep that dark, scary 8th house that no one likes to talk about. I get glimpses every so often of what that Aries Sun should be and I’ve even played the starring role a few times. But then it goes right back into its hiding spot for various reasons that I’m sure I’ll share later.
Now it’s being forced to come out and get in the game.
As I mentioned earlier the Sun is ruled by Leo which is masculine energy. The Sun is exalted in Aries meaning it’s the sign that the Sun most easily operates in and functions better than the sign it rules. Why is that? Aries energy is masculine just like Leo’s energy but what makes it exalted I think is, in order for Leo to really shine, it needs an audience. Whereas Aries will shine and do what it’s gonna do regardless, even if nobody else is around to see. Because it is. The Sun shines 24/7/365, whether we see it as we do on a day that’s not cloudy, or on a cloud filled day or night time.
It takes courage (Aries) to shine and follow your heart (Sun). This is part of what I’m learning.
