The Sun in the Signs
Aries | Taurus |Gemini |Cancer |Leo |Virgo |Libra |
Scorpio |Sagittarius |Capricorn |Aquarius |Pisces
SUN IN ARIES - With the Sun in the cardinal fire sign of Aries, your basic nature is outgoing and self-assertive. You have an energetic approach to life, and a frank and direct approach to others. You can show a great deal of courage and a willingness to plunge into anything without too much hesitation. Sometimes giving things a little thought before you leap would be in order. You have a basic need to establish your self-identity in the face of a potentially hostile environment, and may view life as battle that must be fought and won, an attitude that will ensure plenty of battles. You can be too impulsive and blind to the needs and feelings of others, but your extrovert and aggressive approach to life is often a compensation for a deep insecurity over who you really are.
SUN IN TAURUS- The Sun is in the fixed earth sign of Taurus in your chart. Your basic attunement is to the material, earth level of existence. You are basically a steady, reliable type of person. You have a strong will and once you have set your mind on a course of action, you can carry it out with persistence and determination. The fixed nature of the sign, however, makes it difficult to change your course once you have started, even if it becomes apparent that it is wrong.
Persistence can turn to stubbornness. Like the bull, you may be patient and slow to anger, but when roused can be furious. Often your anger can be sparked of by feelings of jealousy or possessiveness. You love the good life, but can become lazy and self-indulgent.
SUN IN GEMINI- With the Sun in the mutable air sign of Gemini, your basic attunement is to the level of the mind (symbolized by air). There is a restlessness and a need for variety. You have a basic urge to extend yourself through a variety of different contacts and relationships. You are usually on the go, and have a natural ability to do two or more things at once. You have a need for constant intellectual stimulation, and welcome the opportunity to express your opinions, which you can do very well on a number of different subjects. The versatility and adaptability of the Sun in Gemini, if taken to extremes, can lead to a superficial knowledge of many subjects, inconsistency, and the tendency to change your tack in mid-course; then back again, then back. You will need to develop the willpower to see a particular course of action through to its conclusion.
SUN IN CANCER- The Sun is in the cardinal water sign of Cancer in your chart. With the Sun in this sign, you are basically oriented toward your emotions. You are impressionable and sympathetic to others and able to listen patiently, but when your own sensitive feelings are hurt, you can be very moody and irritable. You tend to protect your sensitive feelings and emotions behind a hard exterior shell, just like the crab. Your family and roots are important to you, but you need to develop your own individuality. You will have a strong parental instinct and will be protective and supportive to your children. If you have no children, this will probably be expressed in some other area of your life. You can be very tenacious when pursuing your goals, or holding on to a relationship or other situation, perhaps too tenacious at times. If tenacity is carried to extremes you may have a tendency to hang on to real or imagined hurts.
SUN IN LEO- The Sun in the fixed fire sign of Leo in your chart indicates that your basic nature is proud and generous, with a love of the theatrical and dramatic gestures. You have an innate loyalty and warmth and are generous and affectionate to those you love. You have a need to express yourself creatively, and to be recognized for yourself. The fixed nature of Leo gives you the strength and determination to achieve your aims, once you have decided what they are. Your willpower is generally strong, and once you have set your mind on a course of action you can carry it out with great enthusiasm. You will need to beware of a tendency to become fixed and dogmatic in your opinions, and may be rather intolerant of other people's faults and shortcomings. This arises from your intolerance of your own faults and shortcomings. You may refuse to recognize them, or if you do, refuse to live with them. Expecting perfection of yourself leads you to expect perfection in others.
SUN IN VIRGO- With the Sun in the mutable earth sign of Virgo, your basic nature is practical and adaptable. You may like to be of service to others in some way, probably more concerned with their material well-being and comfort, but if you feel you are being taken for granted or taken advantage of you will not be slow to criticize. You can pay great attention to detail, and have a keen analytical mind. You like to have your life and affairs organized and in order, a trait that can become fussiness and a dissatisfaction with anything short of perfection. There may be some concern with health throughout your life, either as a concern with healthy living, or as a result of bad health due to your overwrought nervous system. You must learn not to worry or fuss so much over your own or others' imperfections.
SUN IN LIBRA- With the Sun in the cardinal air sign of Libra, you are basically attuned to the social and intellectual level of experience. You are friendly and sociable and have a need to extend your experience through a variety of different kinds of relationships, and can hold your own in any social circle. You are capable of seeing both sides of any issue, and with your innate sense of fair play you dislike injustice in any form. Although you can be impartial and objective when dealing with the affairs of others, when you are directly involved the scales can become unbalanced and you can show a surprising degree of selfishness and lack of objectivity. You will have a deep concern with broad social issues, and the need for balanced and harmonious human relationships, both interpersonal and international.
SUN IN SCORPIO- With the Sun in the fixed water sign of Scorpio, you are basically attuned to the emotional level of experience. Your emotional nature is deep and intense, although you can cover your sensitive and powerful feelings with a calm and indifferent surface appearance. Your willpower is strong, and you will not be easily swayed from your goals or ideals, in fact opposition is likely to merely strengthen your resistance even when a change of attitude or behavior would be appropriate. You have a deep sense of the inevitability of death and change and transformation, but you find it difficult to understand why a supposedly loving God can allow so much pain and suffering in the world, and may choose atheism on these grounds. Even so, you are fascinated by knowledge that may be termed occult. You may have a deep distrust in life and in other people. Although you value your own independence very highly, you can be very jealous and possessive if a partner's independence threatens your security.
SUN IN SAGITTARIUS- With the Sun in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius, your basic nature is outgoing and open-minded. You have a need to explore and to find out what is just over the horizon. This need can be expressed literally through travel, or on a more mental level through the exploration of ideas and philosophical systems. You may combine both, traveling for the purpose of expanding your mind. You are adaptable and versatile, able to make the most out of any situation. You see life as a great adventure, and it is the future and future possibilities that draw you on.
You may be prone to exaggeration, and your blindly optimistic and boisterous nature may make you careless and irresponsible. You may have to learn the hard way that you need to take care of unfinished business before you can move on to your next adventure.
SUN IN CAPRICORN- With the Sun in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn you are basically a down to earth and practical person. You possess a great deal of patience and quiet ambition. You are not pushy but once you have decided on a course of action you can work hard for many years, enduring many set-backs, to achieve what you have set out to do. This will often be an achievement that meets with conventional standards of approval, but even if your life-style and goals are not so conventional you will need to see some sort of material or tangible result from your efforts, wealth or a position of authority. You have a tendency to take life too seriously, there is always work to be done and duties to perform and you may have little patience with those who take a more laid back approach to life and love. You may need to loosen up a bit and enjoy life here and now.
SUN IN AQUARIUS- Aquarius is a fixed air sign. In astrology, air represents the activity of the mind, the realm of ideas and social interaction. The fixed nature of this sign lends these thoughts and ideas the power to form the basis of groups united through shared ideals and goals. Aquarius is the time of year before the spring, before the seed has begun to swell in the earth. At this time the whole of nature is oriented toward the future growth. The ideals of Aquarius are forward-looking and revolutionary.
With the Sun in Aquarius your basic tone is idealistic, forward looking and unconventional, but probably rather detached and impersonal. You are by nature either a rebel, or a humanitarian and a true reformer. You need to ensure that your rebellious nature and insistence on holding unconventional views does not become fanaticism and a refusal to change your opinions. You can be either original or eccentric, probably a mixture of both.
SUN IN PISCES- With the Sun in the mutable and watery sign of Pisces, you have a basic attunement to the emotional and feeling level of experience. Your basic nature is rather unworldly and idealistic, with an innate urge to trust everyone. On the positive side this makes you sympathetic, compassionate and sensitive to the needs of others, but you are very impressionable to outside influences and may be easily led. Like the sea however, your emotional nature is full of hidden depths, sudden storms, and strong and shifting emotional currents that can sometimes overwhelm you and those around you. There is a tendency to vagueness, moodiness and periods of self-doubt and self-pity. You have a strong disposition toward escapism and a refusal to face reality. "Feeling good" may be more important to you than dealing with the practical necessities of life. On the positive side, this can be expressed through meditation, a strong imagination and an appreciation of the subtle messages conveyed through music and other art forms. On the negative side this can lead to an excessive dependence on drugs (including alcohol) or fruitless daydreaming and an inability to conform with any kind of routine or self-discipline.
