What's Your Sun Sign
When we begin the process of discovering our true selves one of the vehicles that can help us understand the journey is astrology.
Astrology is the study of how the celestial bodies influence and affect our very human, earthly lives. It can explain short-term influences (like a 28-30 day lunar cycle) or long-term effects (like when the outer planets such as Saturn move from one sign to another).
When starting out on your self-discovery journey via astrology, it’s important to learn the basics.
And the most basic thing you can learn about is your Sun sign.
What is your Sun sign?
It’s basically what zodiac sign the sun was in on the DAY you were born.
Your Sun sign = the DAY you were born.
Your Sun sign is the sign you look up when you read about your horoscopes on websites, magazines, or newspapers.
It's like the blueprint and the eventual structure of a house. It’s the foundation of your personality and how your ego operates. And just like real houses, personalities don’t change unless you demo or alter existing walls.
The foundation of your personality doesn’t really change unless something incredible or traumatic alters it.
So, I recommend before you start looking at other more exotic aspects of your natal / birth chart (the snapshot picture of the universe on the day and time you were born), you do a deep dive into your Sun sign.
Why is it important for you to know your Sun sign?
Because when you know your Sun sign, you’re better able to discover your obvious and latent strengths. You’re also in a better position to know your weaknesses. This will all in turn help you understand yourself better.
So, explore it. Learn about your sign from different astrologers (books or blogs) about the many facets of it. Get perspective.
Now, before you poo-poo on doing all this research, remember that the sun is a mother-lovin’ STAR. It is so powerful, that somewhere, out in the universe someone is making wishes on the twinkling of our sun!
If you don't know your Sun sign, it's easy to find it! Just look at the date range each sign rules to see where your birthday falls.
