The Sun provides the rhythm of our days and the cycles in our year. In astrology, the Sun represents our identity, our soul, our consciousness. This symbolism can be related to the physical Sun because it is the gravity of the Sun that holds our solar system together. The Sun also creates the magnetic field that permeates our solar system. In astrology, our Sun influences our self-confidence and sense of inner power, the things that hold us together and allow us to shine.

The Sun is associated with your essence, your identity, your ego. To many astrologers, the Sun represents the soul’s intention for you in this life. The Sun is your Solar Plexus, your self confidence and inner power. The Sun is your inner fire and the way that you shine in the world.

The Sun is a Yang planet – masculine and active. The Sun was considered Hot and Dry by the ancients. It represented the inner fire of our life and was a key part of vitality and metabolism.

The Sun is the sect leader in the Day sect.
