Saturn in Astrology

saturn astrology

Saturn Overview:

In astrology, Saturn represents restriction and structure. Its influence is associated with hardship and adversity that can build our character and teach us important lessons needed to overcome life’s hurdles. Saturn is also about reality itself, and the burdens and responsibilities we must bear in order to succeed, complete our tasks or fulfill our destiny. 

Moreover, Saturn is a malefic planet and although its presence often serves to make us stronger, wiser and better equipped to handle life, it can bring much suffering and misfortune in the process. Saturn is the planetary ruler of Capricorn, the sea goat. Saturn is exalted in the sign of Libra and in its detriment in Cancer. It is in its fall in the sign of Aries.

Saturn seeks after perfection and tries to slow us down and restrain us from foolhardy and reckless decisions. Saturn encourages patience and self discipline. The willingness and intestinal fortitude to dig your heels and keep moving forward despite the circumstances. Its positive expression includes humility, wisdom and respectfulness. But in its negative form, Saturn can manifest as prejudice, parsimony, and stubborn closed-mindedness.

Additionally, Saturn gives clarity, structure and definition. It is the antidote to chaos and disorder. It pertains to the concrete material world rather than the abstract ideals of Neptune. Where Jupiter expands, Saturn contracts. Saturn tries to conserve and use moderation in all things. Jupiter’s influence is prone to excess, exorbitance and waste. Saturn detests waste and overindulgence of all sorts. 

Under Saturn’s influence, everything should be put in its proper place. Tasks must be carried out in a systematic manner. Important lessons can be drawn from our every experience. Saturn is the great teacher and as such is also associated with authority and those who wield power and influence over us. At the same time, Saturn can be cold and withdrawn. Silence and concentration are part of its character.

  • Saturn Rulership: Capricorn & Aquarius
  • Saturn Detriment: Cancer & Leo
  • Saturn Exaltation: Libra
  • Saturn Fall: Aries

Saturn Key Traits: 

  • Adversity
  • Restriction
  • Limitation
  • Unconscious Fears
  • Law and Order
  • Defensiveness
  • Patience
  • Humility
  • Responsibility
  • Severity
  • Rigidity
  • Endurance

The Saturn Symbol :

The symbol of Saturn is represented as a cross over the crescent moon. The crescent moon of course is the moon partially obscured in darkness and the cross represents the crucible of hardship and darkness with which Saturn forges our character. 

Saturn conserves and focuses our energy. It puts limitations on us to keep us out of harm and danger. When we become too careless and commit foolish acts, Saturn makes sure that we pay a penalty. In doing so, Saturn is an enforcer of karma and justice. 

Saturn in the Natal Chart:

In the birth chart, Saturn represents the ego and the forms and structures that shape it. We are all a product of our personal experiences accumulating over time. Saturn essentially represents the crystallization of the ego into a definable and rigid form. Wherever it is placed in the chart, Saturn serves as an inhibiting force. It can indicate areas in which we are highly self reliant or competent. It can also signify the way in which we limit ourselves or hold ourselves back in life due to fear and procrastination. 

In the natal chart, the house in which Saturn resides indicates where we must start in life and where we can begin planting the seeds of self development and security. This is the starting point for where character can be developed and establish confidence in our ego identity. Our ambitions and drives for success are also indicated here. What we are willing to work hard for and persist until success is achieved. Saturn corresponds with the 10th house in astrology, also known as the house of career and reputation. When Saturn occupies this house, it can be very auspicious for this area of your life. 

Saturn as a Transit:

As Saturn moves through your chart, its influence will be applied to new areas of your life that can be mastered. Saturn takes nearly 30 years to complete its trip around the sun and thus pass through each house and zodiac sign. Therefore, it spends about 2.5 years on average in each sign. That said, Saturn’s transit through each house can be seen as a significant period of growth similar to a 2 year stint at college. When in the 7th house, Saturn may teach us (through our shortcomings) how to be a better partner and how to be less self centered and more sharing. In the 12th house, Saturn may help us come to grips with our own selfishness and recognize a need to transcend the ego and recognize ourselves as part of a greater whole that connects humanity with the universe.

Saturn in Mythology: 

In ancient Rome, Saturn was associated with Saturnus, a deity originally linked with corn, wealth and agriculture. It was the central figure of an annual celebration known as Saturnalia that was observed on the 17th of December in the Julian calendar. Saturn was later associated with the Greek god of time, Cronos, who became the ruler of the universe after successfully upheaving his father Uranus. With his sister Ops, Saturn fathered Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto, Juno, Ceres and Vesta. Saturday is also named after him.

Saturn in Astronomy: 

Until the invention of the telescope, Saturn was the farthest known planet. It is the sixth planet from the sun and the second largest in our solar system after Jupiter. Saturn has at least 82 moons, the largest of which being Titan which is also the second largest moon in the solar system and is even larger than the planet Mercury. Saturn’s orbital period is approximately 29.5 earth years. It’s most remarkable and unique features include it’s majestic ring structure and also the swirling hexagonal cloud pattern on its North Pole.

    Pluto in Astrology

    Published by:

    pluto astrology

    Pluto Overview:

    In astrology, Pluto is the planet of death, and regeneration. It is associated with violence and revenge but also power and healing and also penetrating insight. Pluto is transformative and brings about a metamorphosis that is necessary for survival, overcoming and moving past deep tragedy and painful emotions. Pluto is intense but introspective. It calls for solitude and secrecy and conceals its weakness and vulnerability from those who would exploit it. Pluto possesses martial energy like Mars, but much of it is sublimated into less overt and public ways. It operates in a more clandestine manner cloaked in darkness from which it can observe but not be observed. Pluto desires to wield power and control but unlike Aries, it is more subtle and psychological in how it goes about attaining it.

    Furthermore, Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio and the 8th house which is the house of debts and other people’s money. Pluto can be associated with a lot of negative things like divorce, assassinations, riots, fights, gambling and debts. However, some of its positive qualities include inherited money, tremendous will power, psychic-like intuition and powers of perception. Pluto is all or nothing and can engender extreme attitudes and dogmatism. It carries an indomitable inner drive that refuses to just roll over and die. Pluto’s instinct is to look death in the eye and defy it. Pluto refuses to relinquish its soul power which is eternal and cannot be destroyed, only reincarnated in another form. 

    • Pluto Rulership: Scorpio
    • Pluto Detriment: Taurus
    • Pluto Exaltation: Aries
    • Pluto Fall: Libra

    Pluto Key Traits: 

    • Rebirth 
    • transformation 
    • Construction 
    • submission 
    • wisdom 
    • illumination 
    • annihilation 
    • destruction 
    • intensity 
    • instincts 
    • obsession 
    • Karma 

    The Pluto Symbol:

    Like Uranus, Pluto has two versions of its symbol. One is a monogram composed of the letters ‘P’ and ‘L’ which are the initials of Percival Lowell, the American businessman and astronomer credited with Initiating the effort that led to Pluto’s discovery. The second version is a combination of a circle which represents the spirit, a crescent which represents the mind and a cross which represents the material realm. 

    Pluto in the Natal Chart:

    Because Pluto’s placement takes many years to change, its significance and influence in the birth chart will vary very little from person to person. There is less individualized information that can be derived from In the natal chart, Pluto’s placement can indicate a certain depth and intensity to which one applies themselves to gain understanding, power and control in a given area of the chart. This may also be accompanied with shrewdness and natural insight that allows the individual to understand something about the unconscious drives that motivate themselves and those around them. This can be used for good or bad, it depends on the person and circumstance. Furthermore, In some ways, Pluto’s influence can be equated with what Swiss psychologist Carl Jung referred to as the Shadow. The shadow encompasses the hidden and unconscious parts of the psyche which can often harbor destructive and powerful emotions we try to contain or distance ourselves from. 

    Pluto as a Transit:

    Because of its eccentric orbit, the amount of time Pluto spends in each zodiac sign can vary from 13 to 32 years. Therefore, its influence is generational and is signified by dramatic and seismic disasters and power struggles that punctuate or define an era. Pluto represents beginnings and ends triggered by sometimes cataclysmic events with effects both positive and negative. Pluto signifies a need to wipe the slate clean and start over as a result of something unexpected and unfortunate. It could also be precipitated by a revelation or realization that prompts us to change direction and chart a new course. It the energy to reinvent oneself and transform your plight in one way or another. Taking lemons and making lemonade is a fitting expression to describe what Pluto can often foist onto us. Depending on its placement, however, Pluto can also signify a rise to power and prominence of some sort, often seemingly from out of nowhere. 

    Pluto Mythology: 

    Pluto is the Roman god of the Underworld but has more positive connotations than Hades, its Greek equivalent. Pluto is more comparable to Dis Pater but was also conflated with Pluoton, a Greek god of mineral wealth like diamonds and gems and other natural resources found underground. Pluto is one of the offspring of Cronus and is siblings with Jupiter, Neptune, Juno, Ceres, and Vesta. Pluto was part of a myth that Romans used to explain the seasons. Pluto is said to have abducted Proserpina, the daughter of his sister Ceres to take as his wife in the underworld. In her grief, Ceres ceased all plants from growing. Jupiter intervened and worked out a deal allowing Pluto to keep Proserperina for 6 months only, during which no plants could grow and it would be winter. When Pluto returned Proserpina to her mother, plants would grow once again and it would be summer.

    Pluto in Astronomy:

    The existence of Pluto was first documented in 1914 by Percieval Lowell who postulated the existence of an unknown planet beyond Neptune based on disturbances he observed in Uranus’ orbit. It was first discovered with a telescope by Clyde W. Tombaugh. Pluto was once regarded as the 9th planet in the solar system until its orbit was discovered to be part of the Kuiper asteroid belt. It was then demoted to a dwarf planet. Pluto is roughly 3.6 billion miles away from the sun which is about 50 times farther from the sun than earth is. Pluto has an eccentric orbit which allows it to sometimes get closer to earth than Neptune. Additionally, it had the longest orbital period of all planets, taking roughly 250 earth years to complete one trip around the sun. Pluto is tiny and its size is less than half that of Mercury.

    Uranus in Astrology

    Published by:

    uranus astrology

    Uranus Overview:

    In astrology, Uranus is the planet of technology, originality and revolution. It is linked to upheavals and mutiny and the power of the people against the powers of authoritarians. Uranus represents freedom and liberty and other enlightenment ideals. It is cold and emotionally detached yet idealistic and impassioned. This is the planet of intellectual genius as opposed to the artistic and abstract genius of Neptune. Moreover, Uranus represents independence of the mind and free thought. It resists oppression of all sorts and is willing to take action on behalf of others who experience it. Uranus is altruistic in an intellectual sort of way. It values the sovereignty of the individual apart from the group yet supports solidarity and group cohesion.

    Uranus is not a personal planet; its placements last for several years and so a significant portion of the population will share the same one. It carries the spirit of inventiveness and innovation that drives progress forward and benefits all of humanity. Additionally, Uranus seeks to illuminate and initiate change and reforms where needed. It is a planet that is considered to be a higher octave of Mercury. Mercury focuses on regular communications and transmissions of ideas among neighbors and peers. However, Uranus seeks to use the tools of communication to affect change and to further an expressed goal or agenda. Uranus seeks to apply technical innovation to help mankind and make the world a better place.

    Thus, Uranus is focused on the future and is not preoccupied with preservation of the status quo or maintaining tradition and the current state of affairs. It is fascinated with science, motivated by humanitarianism and prepared for revolution. Uranus embraces change and progress and avoids stagnation. It is led by its thirst for knowledge and technical understanding. Industrious and experimental, Uranus promotes a willingness to try new things and solve challenging problems. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius and is personified by the scientist Nikola Tesla. The planet is associated with radio waves and electricity which revolutionized the world and powering information technology and telecommunications. 

    • Uranus Rulership: Aquarius
    • Uranus Detriment: Leo
    • Uranus Exaltation: Scorpio
    • Uranus Fall: Taurus

    Uranus Key Traits: 

    • Originality
    • genius 
    • unconventionality 
    • intuition 
    • nonconformity 
    • eccentricity 
    • detachments 
    • invention 
    • idealism 
    • Rebellion 
    • Universal love 
    • Independence 
    • Freedom
    • breakthroughs

    The Uranus Symbol:

    Uranus has two different symbols. One being a combination of the sun and mars symbol with an arrow on top pointing upwards  and the other being an ‘H’ shape bisected by a straight line with a circle on the bottom. The H is said to Be taken from the Name of the man who discovered the planet Uranus, William Herschel. The symbol can be interpreted as two pillars representing the human and the divine working together in tandem and  infused by the spirit and vitality of the Sun. The arrow emanating from the top of the sun represents the will to action. and is very similar to the symbol for Mars.

    Uranus in the Natal Chart:

    Uranus takes 84 years to complete its orbit and thus spends about 7 years in each house and sign it passes through. Because of this, astrologers consider it a generational planet rather than a personal one. Uranus’ placement in the natal chart will indicate an area in which individuals may exert unconventional attitudes and ideas. Uranus signifies what makes you original and unique and also how eccentric you are. People who have a strong Uranus influence in their chart are bound to display a very maverick and unorthodox approach to life. They are compelled to follow a different path from that of most people. They are attracted to things that are unusual, strange and mysterious. The nature of their curiosity is also likely to be heavily influenced by what house or sign Uranus occupies. Uranus is already strong-willed but if it is placed in a sign like Aries or Scorpio, it can be especially aggressive and intellectually forceful.

    Uranus as a Transit:

    As Uranus travels through each sign, its effect will likely take the form of technological progress and innovations in particular areas. As Uranus moves through Aries for example, it will manifest as a shift in cultural attitudes that gives rise to more self-promotion and cults of personality. There may be a rise in entrepreneurship and start up businesses as well as a proliferation of bold new ideas and fads. As Uranus transits through Taurus, it may give rise to a shift in the structure of the economy and the rise and fall of value across various industries. It can also indicate an overall change in attitudes about the environment and a push to create better, more environmentally friendly and sustainable ways of producing food and energy and other goods. It can bring about breakthroughs in cleaner technology and healthier lifestyles. 

    Uranus Mythology:

    In Greek mythology Uranus is the sky God who brought the rains that cleansed and nourished Mother Earth  known as Gaia  who is also Uranus’s mother. Uranus mated with Gaia to produce the Titans  and a number of other offspring. Uranus was eventually castrated by his son Kronos at the behest of Gaia who fashioned a flint sickle with which to perform the act. Uranus’ mutilated genitals were cast into the sea from which the goddess Aphrodite was born. Uranus was usurped by Kronos who seized power as the god of time. Uranus’s Roman counterpart was Caelus. There are no known cults dedicated to Uranus.

    Uranus in astronomy:

    Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun and was discovered in 1781 by astronomer Sir William Herschel. Herschel originally proposed the name Georgium Sidus (George’s Star) in honor of King George the Third who reigned over Britain at the time. Another astronomer suggested the name Neptune before eventually it was settled that Uranus was most appropriate. Reason being that it followed the relational order of Uranus being the father of Saturn and Saturn the father of Jupiter. It is the third largest planet in our solar system and is very similar in composition to Neptune, both of which scientists have classified as ice giants. Its axis of rotation is tilted sideways such that its North and South Poles are roughly where other planet’s equators are located. Uranus has a lengthy orbital period that takes 84 earth years to complete.

    Neptune in Astrology

    Published by:

    neptune astrology

    Neptune Overview:

    In astrology, the planet Neptune is regarded as the great Dissolver. The object of dissolution is the ego and the preoccupation with selfish pursuits. Neptune is the planet of mysticism and spiritual awakening. Its influence brings our attention to higher ideals and stimulates our capacity to dream and imagine possibilities. In contrast to Saturn, Neptune is detached from reality and can even be in denial of it. Accepting a bitter or inconvenient truth can be difficult for Neptune to stomach or come to grips with directly. Neptune provides self healing through escapism and faith in things unseen and only intuitively felt.

    Neptune is a planet considered to be a higher octave of Venus. Where Venus is associated with a more physical and sensual type of love and pleasure, Neptune speaks to a more abstract and broader form of love that is more universal and spiritual. Neptune is connected with divinity, martyrdom and self sacrifice. The key phrase of Neptune is “serve or suffer”. Moreover, Neptune represents great receptivity and sensitivity to the needs and feelings of others. Through sparks of inspiration, Neptune bestows powerful insight and wisdom that can also extend to clairvoyance and psychic intuitions. 

    As more of a dreamer than a doer, Neptune can be prone to being all vision and no action. Uranus, which has a similar but more occultish focus, is stronger motivated to take substantive action on its ideals and ideations. Neptune is more the hippy to Uranus’ revolutionary. On the dark side, Neptune is also associated with escapism of both healthy and unhealthy forms. Addiction, disillusionment, inferiority complex, self-sabotage and self-loathing are some of the pitfalls that can come with Neptune. Neptune can obscure our perspective and encourage us to see only what we want to see. To cling to one’s ideals and beliefs despite the facts of reality.

    • Neptune Rulership: Pisces 
    • Neptune Detriment: Virgo
    • Neptune Exaltation: Leo or Cancer
    • Neptune Fall: Aquarius or Capricorn

    Neptune Key Traits: 

    • Inspiration
    • compassion
    • imagination
    • mysticism 
    • sympathy 
    • responsiveness 
    • creativity 
    • visionary 
    • dreaminess 
    • delusion 
    • escapism 
    • chaos 
    • martyrdom 
    • clairvoyance 

    The Neptune Symbol:

    The symbol for Neptune is represented as a Trident, the iconic fork-like weapon used by Poseidon and Neptune. On a more abstract level, the symbol can be broken down to the shape of a cross  piercing a cup. This can be interpreted as  representing the liberation of the spirit from physical limitations and selfish pursuits. It is about slaying the tyranny of the ego or personality so that the soul can be freed and elevated to a higher plane of consciousness.

    Neptune in the Natal Chart:

    When Neptune has a strong influence in the birth chart, it will indicate an individual who is very sensitive and has an active fantasy life to which they escape. They may often feel disillusioned by the harshness of reality and seek to insulate or shelter themselves from it. Creative outlets can provide an antidote and channel through which to process and explore the emotions they experience. In other cases, these individuals may seek to simply numb themselves with mind and mood-altering substances to distract them from certain realities. Where Neptune is placed in the chart may indicate an area for which an individual may find creative fulfillment and spiritual gratification. It can also indicate an area in which an individual may be subject to delusions and deceptions to both themselves and other people.

    Neptune can indicate a capacity or even a talent for lying, fraud and causing confusion. It may also indicate an affinity for chaos and lack of structure in one’s life. Neptune’s placement can also indicate an area of creative genius the individual might possess. Its presence may contribute to powers of intuition and understanding that may defy explanation. Additionally, wherever Neptune is placed can indicate something about what inspires us and what we are inspired to do. When Neptune is afflicted, it can cloud your judgement and the lines between fantasy and reality can become blurred and indistinguishable. Neptune confers greater interest in deeper wisdom, connectedness and spiritual exploration.

    Neptune as a Transit:

    As one of the generational planets, Neptune’s influence is spread across a vast swath of the population and lasts for over a decade in each house and sign it passes through. In each sign and house, Neptune can give rise to various zeitgeists and patterns that end up defining an era. Neptune in Aquarius can stir up a shift in consciousness that leads to unrest and anarchy but also progress and reform. In its passage through Scorpio, Neptune has been linked to the rise of the drug culture in the 1970s and 80s. In the sign of Pisces, Neptune can bring about a postmodern dismantling of the institutions and structures that have been long built up to make way for a new era and vision for the future.

    Neptune Mythology:

    Neptune is named after the Roman god of the sea whose Greek equivalent was Poseidon. Neptune is the offspring of Saturn and Ops along with siblings Jupiter, Ceres, Vesta, Pluto, and Juno. Prior to the influence of Hellenistic deities, Neptune is believed to have been associated with fresh water springs, and rivers and also equestrianism. Neptune was previously known as the Lord of horses who helped Minerva build the chariots. Neptune replaced Portunus as The God who ancient Romans thanked for naval victories. The Romans honored Neptune during the Neptunalia festival which was celebrated on the 23rd of July. The festivities included the sacrifice of a bull and casual merrymaking with lots of drinking of both spring water and wine.

    Neptune in Astronomy:

    Barring Pluto, Neptune is the farthest planet from the sun in our solar system. It is the fourth largest planet behind Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter, the largest planet. Neptune has an extremely long orbital period. One Neptune year is equal to 164.8 earth years. The planet is not visible to the naked eye and its discovery was made through mathematical prediction rather than by direct observation. A French astronomer named Alexis Bouvard observed irregularities in Uranus’ orbit that he believed or possibly caused by an unknown planet. His hypothesis was later proven correct by two separate observers in 1846 who used boulevards data to locate Neptune’s position and view it with a telescope.

    • understanding 
    • kindness 
    • extravagance

    • expansion

    The Jupiter Symbol:

    The symbol for Jupiter is somewhat like Saturn but flipped upside down. it represents the liberation of the mind to express itself freely and unconstrained by the tests and prohibitions of reality. This is a representation of the superconscious mind that does not subordinate or limit itself to the practical and mundane. Instead, it seeks to bend reality to its will and auspices. It is broad and borderless in its reach and boundless in its optimism and benevolence. 

    Jupiter in the Natal Chart:

    Jupiter is the opposite of Saturn in that it is representative of abundance and unlimited potential whereas Saturn is associated with minimalism and limitation. Jupiter seeks to explore the world and accumulate wisdom like an itinerant philosopher. Individuals whose birth chart features a prominent Jupiter are likely to enjoy popularity, a cheerful disposition and an ability to attract good luck and success in many of their endeavors.

Jupiter bestows a generosity of spirit that can attract good luck and good karma there. A lot of success and good things are bound to occur by chance and with relatively little effort in the area where Jupiter is found.

In the sign of Gemini, Jupiter can enhance the payoffs and rewards for being clever and communicating well. In the sign of Virgo, Jupiter can make you successful doing what you enjoy as a hobby. You are able to prosper well through an attention to detail and tireless work ethic.

    Jupiter Mythology: 

    In Roman mythology, Jupiter became the king of the Gods after successfully a usurping his father Saturn. Jupiter’s Greek equivalent is Zeus the god of thunder. The sacred animal a Jupiter is the eagle. In Roman culture, Jupiter serves as a divine witness to ceremonial rites and oaths and formed part of the Capitoline Triad along with Juno and Minerva which was a fictitious guardian of the state. Jupiter was the son of Saturn and Ops was one of six siblings including Pluto, Neptune, Ceres, Vesta and Juno.

    Sun in Astrology

    Published by:

    sun astrology

    Sun Overview:

    In astrology, the sun represents the conscious ego, our vitality and willpower. The sun is the central and most popular aspect of personal astrology. However, while it describes a great deal about the basic personality traits of a person, the sun sign alone does not tell the whole story. The moon for example, represents the subconscious mind and the innermost thoughts and feelings that have a life of their own. Those inner desires and feelings are illuminated by our sun and given expression when our sun acknowledges them. The Sun is also used to signify men and the father while the moon is designated to represent women and the mother. Additionally, the sun rules the heart and spine and is the planetary ruler of the sign of Leo and 5th house. 

    Where the sun is placed will determine where the individual’s ability to make a significant contribution in life lies. The sun sign constitutes the basic inner Force that motivates our action. It reveals what the individual unconsciously assumes to be real and of importance. Air signs such as Gemini and Aquarius for example, treat their thoughts and beliefs to be as real and valid as any material or concrete object. For the water signs, their emotions and feelings are largely what resonates most strongly with them. For the Earth signs, seeing is believing and the fire signs are all about keeping a constant flow of excitement and activity.

    The symbol for the sun in astrology is simply a circle with a dot in the center. The circle symbolizes the spirit or soul and the dot represents the divine spark. The sun represents the eternal self. That which has no beginning or end and is boundless and infinite. The sun represents the very core of being and is the essence of who we are that carries over into the next life. 

    Sun in the Natal Chart:

    The sun’s placement in your chart determines the core essence of you individuality. The characteristics of your sun sign describe the fundamentals of who you are as a person and what you need to feel fulfilled and revitalized in response to the stressors that life hurls at you. The sun in your chart is like the protagonist in a play. It is the central figure around which all other objects revolve, at least in terms of the point of perspective. It is a frame of reference from which to interpret the various nuances created by the other planetary placements and aspects in your chart. The Sun along with the first house in your chart are integral for understanding the nature of your personality in terms of the Persona you project and how others perceive you.

    However, sun sign astrology is just the beginning of understanding who you are through the power of astrology. Many people may find that their sun sign horoscope does not feel specific enough or accurate enough in how it represents themselves. That is one of the flaws of sun-based astrology, because to truly understand each person astrologically it is necessary to take into account the various planetary placements and aspects that shape add define the unique nuances of the personality. Human psychology is complex and much of that complexity was eloquently articulated in the works of psychologists like Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud. Concepts like the conscious ego, the id, the superego, the shadow and the unconscious are compatible with and can be accounted for with astrology

    Sun as a Transit:

    The Sun transits into a different sign every month, but this does not mean that your sun sign changes with it. Instead, the sun’s transit through each sign and house puts a spotlight and emphasis on different facets of your life. In the sign of Aries or the first house, the sun puts more attention on being more active and perhaps initiating a number of new enterprises. An individual will be inspired or motivated to invest a lot more time and energy in themselves and their appearance to boost their attractiveness and self esteem. In the sign of Taurus or the 2nd house, the Sun will put more focus on making smart investments and purchases. They may take an interest in decorating and personalizing their environments with various furnishments and display pieces. In Gemini or the 3rd house, the sun will be more conscious about communication and engender a willful desire to speak up more and find ways to improve communication skills.
