Sun’s planetary meaning has a direct relationship on it’s astrological meaning.
Sun is centering. Sun is huge. Sun is stable and never changing (especially compared to the forever changing face of the Moon). Every planet revolves around it. Our daily lives, our schedules, our moods are influenced by it. If life was a movie, Sun would without a doubt play a leading role. So in a natal chart Sun represents the core, solid, visible and unchanging self, our fundamental essence. Sun sign is the strongest and most easy to notice as we consciously project it’s qualities, just like Sun projects light.
The light of the Sun illuminates the world. It wants to see and be seen. It brings things into focus, shapes our reality, our wants, values and expectations. It makes things real. The light of the Sun in a natal chart corresponds to •identity, •individuality, •ego, •how one sees oneself, and •how one is seen by others.
Sun also gives us warmth. It’s core is hot and is associated with the heart, the fire inside all living beings. It keeps everything moving, gives fuel, reignites things. So it represents •vitality, •the type of fuel one needs to stay healthy and happy, •creative energy, •vision, •one’s true radiant inner self
Sun is masculine yang energy. It pushes outward reaching remote corners and planets with its rays. Some of the archetypes to mention are king (grand, central, powerful), hero (direct, consciously overcoming adversity), divine child (true to self, just is, without trying to be something he is not) and performer (expressive and creative)
