The Astrological Sun and Personalities of Astrology Signs
The Sun is what we're talking about in astrology when we say, "What's your sign?" Many professional astrologers grow impatient with looking at the just the Sun in the chart because it's been so overly-popularized. When doing character analysis, it's usefulness is only a portion of the story taken into account because there are many other heavenly bodies to consider when reading a horoscope. However it's importance is greatly understood by the professional astrologer.
The Sun Sign represents the source of our energy, just as its the source of heat and light for our planet and a variety of necessary rays for our Solar System. It also shows who we are at our best, when our light is shining and when we're being truly authentic beings. It's been said in astrology that our Sun is what we aspire to, what we wish to believe of ourselves.
When we're feeling self-confident, sure of ourselves and our abilities, our Sun is surely shining. When we're filled with self-doubt, shy and uncertain, our Sun has dimmed and is having problems. Our creative nature is evidenced through our Sun, and it shows how we like our romancem too.
In the system of chakras, the spiritual energy centers of the body, the Sun is represented in (big surprise) the solar plexus. This is a major nerve center, and has been considered the "gut" of our being. It's full of feeling, with the vital essence of ourselves as human beings.
Some astrologers consider that the Sun actually contains the energies of all the other bodies in the Solar System. This makes sense if considering that every other planet is literally a "spin off" of the Sun.
