Astrology: Sun Secrets Revealed

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Decoding the symbolism of the Sun in a person’s comprehensive astrology charts gives you an enormous amount of data about his or her personal fate and personality.

You’re probably familiar with your Sun sign, and it’s understandable if you don’t believe in Sun sign astrology (i.e., horoscopes). I don’t either. Sun sign astrology didn’t exist until about 100 years ago, when it was created as a form of entertainment. Contrast that with the authentic science of astrology, which originated around 300 BC and peaked around 1300 AD.

Ancient astrologers showed that consistently high accuracy rates in prediction and personality analysis demand a comprehensive approach involving pattern recognition, using hundreds of indicators. Although the Sun is not the only heavenly body to consider, it’s an important one.

Below I list select Sun secrets and features.

  1. The Sun is masculine and rules the sign of Leo. The Sun is exalted in the sign of Aries. The Sun in the sign of Aquarius or Libra (notice the opposite of the sign it rules and the sign in which it is exalted) is adverse, but it can be symbolically reversed; the negative or positive energy of any given factor is reduced or supported by the energy of the other hundreds of factors.
  2. The Sun symbolizes charisma, honor, fame, power, prime ministers, rulers, kings, members of the court (princes, etc.), fathers, radio and TV broadcasters and commentators, TV anchormen and anchorwomen, and famous personalities such as performers, actors, and models.
  3. The Sun also symbolizes overall difficulties in life if it (and its ruler) is in poor health and, or bad position.
  4. The strength of a person’s natal Sun (same with the natal Moon) and its ruler has a lot to do with the level of personal adversity in his or her life.
  5. The most potent heavenly body in a person’s comprehensive astrology charts (it’s not the “chart ruler,” the Ascendant ruler, as dictated by modern astrology) and everything connected to it offers a wealth of information. When it’s the Sun, the person is much more likely than average to yearn for and be in positions of authority and influence. Honor and recognition is also easier to come by.
  6. Although it’s only one of many factors to consider, the Sun has a lot to do with a person’s level of recognition and fame, and can represent infamy.
  7. The Sun has much to do with love interests—if the love interest is a man. It (along with other factors) represents romantic partners.
  8. The debate about your real Sun sign continues to rage, but it’s inconsequential compared to the collective energy of the other hundreds of factors in your comprehensive charts.

The symbolism of the Sun in comprehensive astrology reveals a great deal of insight about a person’s character, timing, and fate.

Astrology: Gemini vs. Cancer

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Lately I have been very confused with my Venus compared to my sun sign. According to astrology, a Gemini in Venus means that when I fall in love I get bored easily and that I’m not very deep. My Sun and Ascendant are in Cancer but my Venus and Mars are in Gemini. This seems completely the opposite of my personality. I do not like different people at the same time. I fall in love with one person and I am very committed to that person for the long run. I would never cheat on them. I feel as though I love like a Cancer…so why is my venus and mars in Gemini? Isn’t it a bit of a contradiction to be a cancer but love like a gemini?

Sorry to hear about your bewilderment. Your confusion is understandable considering how the science of astrology has been distorted since the 1700s.

You say, “According to astrology, a Gemini in Venus means that when I fall in love I get bored easily and that I’m not very deep.”

To be blunt, that’s an erroneous statement based on trivial modern astrology rip-offs of the ancient science. There exist dozens of indicators to assess one’s love life. The mere sign your natal Venus happens to be in is a very small part of the patterns in the comprehensive charts that reflect a person’s love life particulars.

You say, “I feel as though I love like a Cancer…so why is my Venus and mars in Gemini?”

You can’t use Sun sign astrology (or Venus sign astrology, or Mars sign astrology) for accurate personality analysis. Some people born while the Sun is transiting the sign of Cancer love deeply and sincerely, and others are cold and duplicitous.

To answer your first question, your natal Mars and Venus are in Gemini because that is the sign they were transiting at the time of your birth.

To answer your second question, everyone has every single sign represented in his or her comprehensive charts. You are not a single sign, just like you are not a single body part.

I recommend you forget the modern astrology you’ve learned thus far and begin studying real astrology from around 300 BC to about 1700 AD. In doing so, you’ll realize it’s as complex of a language as any other and there aren’t any short cuts if you want consistently high accuracy rates.

Astrology Triviality: the 12 Signs at a Party

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012
Share Button

My question relates to something I have read about eons ago but cannot seem to find now. Is a scenario based question on the 12 signs and how they would interact with each other at, for instance, a dinner party? Something like that. Sometimes I feel like when I read anything to do with personality typing all fire signs sound the same, as do the water, earth and air. Your reply is very appreciated! Thank you.

The almost universal viewpoint mistaking Sun sign astrology for authentic astrology is due to blatant distortion of the esoteric science for more than a century. 99% of what you find on the Internet regarding astrology is misinformation. Complex ancient methodologies are shoddily modified (rendering them useless) on popular sites in get-rich marketing schemes, and politically correct New Age agendas warp ancient astrological truths. It’s understandable that your exposure to astrology is limited to trivialities.

The fire signs include Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Astrologically, fire is masculine, like air. Water and earth are feminine.

However, surely nobody really believes that everyone with fire Sun signs (24.9%+- of the population) has identical, or even noticeably similar, personalities.

Likewise, every person with a Libra Sun sign, for instance, won’t have the same personality strengths and weaknesses.

Being forced to assign a few qualities or just a paragraph to each sign isn’t really fair. Besides, people aren’t merely Sun signs just like they aren’t merely hands or noses; they have hundreds of other factors in their comprehensive charts. Authentic astrology involves pattern recognition involving those hundreds of indicators.

But to appease the demand for a surface approach (and humor), here is my take on each sign in a social setting, highlighting some of the more notorious attributes:

Aries: bull in a china shop; will shamelessly hit on you; doesn’t care what anyone thinks.

Taurus: will gravitate to the buffet and is desperately hoping to satiate her other, more intimate sensual needs later on in the evening.

Gemini: can talk to anyone and juggle many interests at once, including romantic.

Cancer: attends the party wanting to find a serious, long-term relationship; wonders how people enjoy being single; depressed.

Leo: can be the life of the party, won’t turn down a nightcap, and loves to talk, especially about herself.

Virgo: makes sure to dress appropriately and fastidiously, and expertly critiques the attire and behavior of everyone at the party.

Libra: loves to socialize, just don’t bring up anything too controversial or conflict oriented because he will leave the party.

Scorpio: secretive, yet deep and intriguing; expect kinky sex.

Sagittarius: socially driven, yet freedom oriented; don’t try to tie her down.

Capricorn: interested in business connections at the party; not the most socially inclined person; several people consider telling him to lighten up.

Aquarius: unusually open-minded; more socially motivated than average and more likely to accept an invitation to a threesome.

Pisces: heart of gold; escapist; enjoys his alcohol; and readily accepts an invitation to attend a drumming circle tomorrow.

Seriously, do any of the above samples definitively, consistently characterize all people who possess the respective Sun signs? Of course they don’t—not even close.

What they may do, however, is somewhat typify a person with a very significant amount of one specific sign (i.e., several heavenly bodies in one sign, especially potent ones relative to his or her natal charts) in his or her comprehensive charts. But those cases are rare, and many of those people don’t even have natal Sun in the related sign.

Personality analysis based exclusively on Sun signs, or just a handful of considerations, is impossible due to the fact that Sun sign astrology is a very superficial construct.

Sun Sign Astrology Origins & Why You Should Avoid it

Monday, October 10th, 2011
Share Button

Don’t believe in astrology?

I don’t believe in the astrology you’ve been exposed to either.

The “horoscopes” you find in newspapers, magazines, and on the Internet are not truly horoscopic, as they have nothing to do with the Ascendant (Rising sign).

Horoscopic astrology, which includes the fundamental astrology chart system in use today with its Ascendant (the degree of the rising Eastern horizon at the chart’s inception) and house divisions, is believed to have originated in Hellenistic Egypt (approximately 330 BC – 30 BC). The development of astrology as a valid science reached a pinnacle in the Middle Ages.

The unfortunate departure from authentic astrology began in the 1600s and accelerated with the advent of “modern astrology” in the late 1800s. Readily accepted in the marketplace due to its lack of complexity, Sun sign and psychologically based astrology began its ascent. Although such superficial astrology does serve as an introduction to the genuine science, regrettably, it’s very misleading.

It’s impossible to offer true guidance for anyone using only Sun signs, or Sun signs and a handful of transits or other basic indicators. You might as well be applying random entries of poetry to the circumstances of your life. Watered down astrology only serves as entertainment. A weather forecast approach, targeting huge amounts of the population at once, is futile.

Again, if this is the astrology you’ve been exposed to, and it likely is, I don’t believe in it either. The Internet is the black-hole of astrology and numerology half-truths; you’ll largely come across only trifling imitations of ancient practices.

Real astrology and numerology are complicated languages of personal predetermination. A very personalized approach using the full birth data must be applied in delineation and prediction to achieve consistently high accuracy rates.

It’s entirely feasible to know the years and months an individual will encounter their most important life circumstances and events through comprehensive astrology and numerology. The knowledge allows you to plan and prepare, reducing your risk.

Why Being Born on the Cusp Doesn’t Make You a Freak: Myth vs. Reality

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010
Share Button

A cusp is an astrological division between signs or houses.

Being born “on the cusp” refers to the Sun being in the very late or early degrees of a sign (each sign has 30 degrees) at the time of birth.

However, despite the edge of the Sun being able to creep into the next sign while it’s on the cusp, technically, the center of the Sun at any given time is in either one sign or the next, not both.

Each year the Sun changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn for example, at different times, on different days, within a period of a few days. The Sun does not change signs on the same day or time every year for any sign.

Also, your life isn’t “influenced” by astrology, but it is represented (“As above, so below” Hermes Trismegistus) by the hundreds of factors in the comprehensive astrology and numerology charts.

Every sign of the zodiac is represented in your comprehensive charts, in one way or another. The Sun was transiting one of those 12 signs at the time of your birth. Our modern, universal, Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar, based on the length of the tropical year (the time interval between vernal equinoxes), but there’s a lot more to astrology than the Sun.

Sun sign astrology didn’t exist until about 100 years ago, it was developed mainly for New Age entertainment (and profit), and it’s a travesty to the body of ancient methodologies which represent authentic astrology. It’s understandable why many people exposed to today’s “astrology,” found in generalized “horoscopes,” dismiss it as pseudoscience.

The Sun sign is only one of hundreds of astrological indicators: placement and health of heavenly bodies such as the Moon, planets, fixed stars, Arabic Parts, etc., along with their rulers; patterns formed by multiple factors forming a solid system of checks and balances–it’s a language as comprehensive as any other.

Whenever someone asks, “Which sign am I?” or “Am I both signs?” I’m happy to tell them their Sun sign, but I’m compelled to say, “I must first clarify for you that Sun sign astrology, which you are referring to, is trivial. It’s nonsensical. It’s like taking your hand and saying ‘I’m a hand.’ No, you’re not a hand, just like you aren’t ‘an Aries,’ for instance. You’re a collection of multiple body parts. But if you insist on Sun sign astrology, technically you can have only one Sun sign.”

Mercury is always close to the Sun, and when the Sun is in the very early degrees of a sign, often Mercury is in the late degrees of the sign before it. Or Mercury is just ahead of the Sun in the next sign. Other heavenly bodies are also just ahead or behind the Sun, and some others are in the sign of the Sun. So what you think is a Sun sign, is really an assortment of energies.

What you believe to be a Libra Sun, for example, could instead be heavy Gemini or Aquarius (also masculine air signs) energy in the comprehensive charts.

What you believe to be a Taurus Sun, for example, could instead be heavy Capricorn or Virgo (also feminine earth signs) energy in the comprehensive charts.

Also consider the symbolism of comprehensive numerology.

What you think is a Leo Sun, for example, could easily be an abundance of 1, 3, and, or 5 energy.

What you think is a Pisces Sun, for example, could easily be strong 2 and 9 energy.

There is always a unique dominant planet in each person’s natal comprehensive charts–the “chart ruler” (this is not the Ascendant ruler, by the way–that’s a modern astrology misconception). Sometimes it’s the Sun, many other times it’s not.

Let’s say a person was born on January 18th with the Sun in late degrees of Capricorn. Although you might interpret that to be also an Aquarius Sun “because he seems like ‘an Aquarius’ too,” what you’re really picking up in this case is a very strong Natal Mars in Aquarius in a strong house, with its ruler also very healthy and in a strong house, along with being fortified by the Ptolemaic aspects to a couple of other heavenly bodies, in part.

At the same time, his Sun being very firmly in the Sign of Capricorn, while in a weak house and debilitated by other heavenly bodies, translates into the Sun in Capricorn being a minor player in his comprehensive charts.

When you confuse one Sun sign for another, it’s also possible you could be sensing triplicity (three signs belonging to the same element, such as fire–Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) rulership, or terms divisions, which is the separation of each 30 degree sign into 5 sections.

For example, Egyptian Terms divides the sign of Pisces into these sections: Venus rules the first 12 degrees, Jupiter rules the next 4, Mercury rules the next 3, Mars rules the next 9, and Saturn rules the final 2 degrees.

What you might think is Sun sign symbolism, is instead a collection of energies.

If you insist on considering only one indicator, the Ascendant (and all connected to it), otherwise known as the Rising sign, is more personal, much more so than the Sun sign.

Astrology, Numerology & Compatibility – Why You Need to Scrutinize a Lot More Than Just Sun Signs

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009
Share Button

Instead of considering only astrological Sun signs, we believe that the comprehensive astrology and numerology charts must be scrutinized if one wants to consider true personality, compatibility, and personal timing (prediction and forecasting).

Also, thorough handwriting analysis done by a well-trained professional adds a great deal of additional insight about subconscious character, much of which that can’t be found through modern, psychological astrology.

On the surface, you may think you have great astrological  compatibility on paper with two seemingly easy-going, compassionate people (signified in part, for example, by both having an abundance of Pisces and Cancer energy).

However, it’s discovered that one has very compressed, narrow, extreme right-slanted, sharp, angular, heavy pressure script with rigid baselines and downward slanting, weak-ending, pointed letter t-bars. Plus, strong patterns of over-balanced “8” and “1” energy are found in the comprehensive numerology charts. All of this with other corroborating information alerts the analyst to the strong possibility of that person being a domineering abuser (please note: such findings as depicted by clinical terms would not be reported to anyone other than the subject, and then only if the subject asked to be told of such potential).

The other person’s comprehensive charts involve, in part, lots of under-balanced “2” energy which suggests dependency and self-deprecation. In support of these notions, that person’s script includes martyr/victim traits such as small overall script size, light writing pressure, close word spacing, excessively rounded and immature-looking writing, droopy rhythm and connectives between letters, pinched circle letters, low and weakly crossed letter t-bars back to the left instead of to the right, and x-formations where the letter x is not present (please note: such findings as depicted by clinical terms would not be reported to anyone other than the subject, and then only if the subject asked to be told of such potential).

In this case, a surface astrology interpretation would unfortunately leave open the potential for a very toxic, if not dangerous match.

An aside, psychology was not part of astrology until about 100 years ago. The approximately 2000 year tradition of the science of astrology involves mostly prediction instead of psychological character analysis. Unfortunately, in our view, most astrology found today in print or on-line is primarily modern, psychological astrology, and involves a frivolous and distorted approach to the science.

Astrology that’s largely for entertainment only (although usually not presented as such) includes, for example, Sun or Moon sign horoscopes, and readings done by astrologers who commonly promote falsehoods such as, “…(numerology or) astrology isn’t predestination or fate…how things play out is going to be up to you,” stated to cover a refusal to do in-depth delineation, or mask an inability to do accurate prediction.

Some popular modern astrologers even go so far as to offensively suggest escapism, wishful thinking, self-fulfilling prophesies, and a failure to take responsibility for one’s actions and life in response to the idea that some astrologers and numerologists (like us) say it’s possible to measure and outline personal fate (i.e., impart the general inclination of fate, and frequently, even precise future circumstances and events). Worse, they deny that fate exists, and also deny the reality that varying degrees of unavoidable adversity (which is also measurable) in people’s lives serves a divine purpose. The truth is that their form of astrology or numerology isn’t about predestination or fate and that original ancient predictive astrology and numerology are absolutely about predestination and fate. It’s ironic how fully embracing the concepts of karma and fate is directly related to taking responsibility for one’s actions and that much of the modern astrology found today offers mainly an escape from the hard realities of life.

Reviewing Sun Signs, Moon Signs, or any other individual aspect without considering the rest of the charts’ contents and patterns within those charts, will only give you surface insight. It tells you virtually nothing about the reality of the personality, or the compatibility between you and another person.

For example, the Sign of Aquarius is considered to be relatively harmonious with the Sign of Sagittarius. If you select ten random people with Aquarius Sun Signs and match them with ten people with Sagittarius Sun Signs, it’s entirely possible that none of them will get along with each other. It’s also entirely possible that all of them will get along.

The best romantic matches for a Libra Sun and Cancer Moon combination, for instance, depends entirely upon the health of the respective planets (strong and well, or involving afflictions including planets in detriment, badly aspected planets, weak house placement, retrogrades, etc.), their rulers and the health of those rulers, along with the rest of the several hundred aspects, and patterns comprised of those aspects, throughout the comprehensive charts of each person.

It’s possible for a person with a Libra Sun and Cancer Moon, for example, to have wonderful compatibility with a person with an Aries Sun and Capricorn Moon, both oppositions.

Oppositions are commonly considered to involve poor compatibility, but sometimes very close oppositions (opposing planets that are very tightly aspected by a degree or two, within the compatibility charts) offer more reward than challenge, especially if the remaining compatibility energy is harmonious.

Oppositions are as follows:
Aries is opposed to Libra.
Taurus is opposed to Scorpio.
Gemini is opposed to Sagittarius.
Cancer is opposed to Capricorn.
Leo is opposed to Aquarius.
Virgo is opposed to Pisces.

Conjunctions, same sign combinations, represent intensification of the sign’s energy, and is sometimes positive and sometimes negative. Generally, it’s a “hard” aspect, and not as easy flowing as trines and sextiles.

Although we feel that modern astrology places too much emphasis on Ptolemaic aspects, it’s good to have an understanding of them.

The basic, major Ptolemaic aspects include oppositions (180 degree angle), conjunctions (0 degree angle), squares (90 degree angle), trines (120 degree angle), and sextiles (60 degree angle).

Square aspects are combinations of signs that are of different elements (see below), like Taurus with Leo, and generally indicate challenge and tension. Trine aspects are combinations of signs that are of the same element, such as Scorpio with Pisces (both water), and are generally agreeable. Sextile aspects are combinations of signs that are of compatible, but different, elements such as Cancer with Virgo, or Leo with Libra, and are also generally favorable.

If you accept the trivial approach of reviewing only the Sun and Moon signs, which might offer a preview at best, then it’s good to look at the elemental combinations of the signs for some basic awareness.

On the surface, fire and air are harmonious, and earth and water are harmonious. In addition, each element commonly mixes well with itself (fire and fire, etc.).

Fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
Air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.

A surface approach will involve Libra Sun, Cancer Moon compatibility with an air or fire Sun, along with a water or earth Moon, but that’s just the beginning.

If you want to go a little deeper, yet still not get into comprehensive analysis, considering the nature of the sign is also helpful (Fixed, Mutable, or Cardinal), as is considering the masculine or feminine nature of the sign (fire and air are masculine, and earth and water are feminine).

We also strongly recommend contemplating each person’s personal timing when considering compatibility.

Personal timing, comprised of scores of short, medium, and long-term continuous and non-continuous numerological and astrological cyclical timing methods, regularly symbolically makes or breaks relationships. The collective cycles can be divided into groups that are the basis for pattern recognition.

Two people can seemingly have nothing in common aside from their current personal time cycles (some as short as a day, others as long as many years), and when those time cycles change, the relationship changes, or even dissolves.

It should be noted that we understand that it is possible for someone who has strong, solid psychic ability and a good, general understanding of astrology to successfully use Sun and Moon signs exclusively as psychic touchstones. But few have this talent where they can get consistent, accurate reads without a comprehensive approach.

Again, an astrologer must consider all comprehensive charts in determining compatibility, along with the comprehensive timing charts, and not just the Sun and Moon signs if one really wants to uncover existing compatibility. Again, we have found that you also must consider the comprehensive numerology charts, along with handwriting analysis (subconscious fears and defenses, etc.), if you want a high level of accuracy.

A skeptic saying that they “…don’t believe in astrology,” to us, is a reasonable and understandable statement if they have only been exposed to Sun Sign astrology, which is the basis for most astrology horoscopes today.

Comparing Sun Sign astrology to an in-depth analysis as referred to in the above paragraphs is like comparing conspiracy theory half-truths to confirmed CIA intelligence.
