I remember growing up and reading in the magazines how Leo Sun people are the life of the party, performers by nature and attention seekers with a keen predisposition for drama and being self-centered. With a description like that, the Pisces rising that I am hated being a Leo. It was not until I started learning Astrology and understanding that the archetypal messages and systems (which are a bit more complex than a general horoscope thrown in a Women’s magazine to say the least), that I started to understand the importance of my Sun sign in my life purpose.
I realize through my work that a lot of people find it hard to relate directly to their Sun Signs and that’s precisely one of the key elements to our life purpose. In this post I’m going to share with you why your Sun sign plays a major role in your life purpose but it’s not the only player in the game.
Before we start, go ahead and grab a cup of coffee or tea and join me for this ride.
The Sun is the central star and point of our Solar System. It’s a bit redundant I know, but it is very important to understand its meaning. It is the central point, the focal point and from where all the light comes and touches the Earth. Without the Sun there would be no life on Earth as we know it. Therefore, your Sun sign is your true essence, it is what you do that makes you feel totally who you are, it is your inner shining light.
But get too close to the Sun you’ll get sunburnt.
Take my example: a natural performer, attention seeker… I really didn’t connect to this, until I understood that this meant using my personality in everything I do. My life purpose is to shine my light into all I do, making sure that my persona (my Sun) stands out in all aspects of my life. Not easy when you are insecure girl like I was when I was dipping my feet in Astrology.
For other signs, the Sun might not be as out there as it is for Leo Sun people. This is a matter of planetary rulership which is a bit more complex subject. But for the purposes of this post let’s just say that everyone’s Life Purpose is to fully embrace the light of their Sun Signs, whether it is in Pisces, Taurus, Aquarius, Aries or any of the 12 zodiac signs.
Nah I’m just kidding
Of course that’s easy to say but HOW do we do that ?
That’s the real question !
I won’t lie to you. It is pretty hard going to our essence… We are made of emotions (Moon), ideas (Mercury), Desires (Venus), Motivations (Mars) , expansion (Jupiter), Restrictions (Saturn), Revolution (Uranus), Dreams (Neptune), Transformations (Pluto) and all of these together don’t always agree on HOW we are to become the light of our Sun. That is why understanding how all of these planets are working (or not) together in your Natal Chart is primordial. This is the way we understand how your life purpose is supposed to manifest itself in your life.
Through Astrology you can learn to embrace it and make it a beautiful journey rather than something you are fighting against. It’s like the sunscreen and hat you need in order to start getting used to staying in your light.
The first step is to understand through which Zodiac sign is your Sun speaking and where does it like to express itself (which area of your life). Then we work with the dynamics of each planet, how they interact, help each other or not. We take a close look at what we call the Angles in your chart to understand what role your Ascendant (the zodiac sign that was rising in the horizon the moment you were born) is asking you to assume in this life, and which direction you should take that will your bring you the most growth with your North Node.
Your Midheaven, or Career Line will tell us how you are recognized socially for what you bring into the world. Combine all of these to your the asteroid Chiron your deepest insecurities and how you can help others, and your Part of Fortune (what brings you the most luck) and THERE we are starting to get a full picture on HOW to fully shine your Sun and thus step in fully into your life purpose. >> Click here to read how I run my Astrology Consultations.
Astrology is a mirror of your life and it’s a journey. Each time you come to it you will understand a bit more about yourself and your purpose. It carries the blueprint of your potential and it’s up to you to harness it. Sometimes you’ll be ready to understand certain messages that didn’t quite resonate a first time.
There is divine timing for everything in life. You can’t force a flower to blossom in the winter, it will just not happen. Same goes with understanding your Natal Chart. But you can start feeling it, getting to know it and spending time with it so you witness and when it’s blooming at its fullest.
I hope I’ve managed to help you understand why your Sun sign has a major role in your life purpose but it’s the only key to unlocking it.
