Following Your Essence
Getting Beyond Ego-Motivations
Embracing Interdependence in Your Life
Evolving Past Your Conflictual Tendencies
The sun represents our vitality and our conscious ego, the self and its expression. It establishes our will to live and our creative force. It is associated with spontaneity and health. A well aspected Sun will describe a person who has heart, who cares for others both in general, and at the personal level. A poorly aspected Sun will describe a person who either has much more difficulty accessing this love and caring ability. In your chart the position of the sign represents your life purpose and style in which your make your mark in the world.

There’s often a big gap between what you want and what you need. And the conflict plays itself out internally, like a conflict between head and heart. Your head tells you what you want, but your heart knows that it’s not the thing that will make you happy.
In relationships it also shows in your pursuit of people that your heart knows are not right for you. It’s time to start developing the presence to be able to tell the difference between the desires of the head and the desires of the heart.
The former are ego driven, and their fulfillment comes at the expense of your growth. The latter come from the essence of who you are, and will guide you to that which is best for you.
You long for personal freedom, yet you need a lot of support. You often feel smothered by those closest to you, yet you lean on them when the world overwhelms you.
It’s another perennial conflict of your life. You want both autonomy and community, but your need for each is so strong that each tends to resent your need for the other. Two twin truths are worth remembering: that freedom is nothing if you have nobody to share it with, and that only communities that respect personal freedom are worth being a part of, so only be a part of those that do.
It’s a conflict that has acted itself out in your relationship with your parents and with other authority figures. You often see them as being a restricting force in your life and are skeptical of the communities they head.
But greater awareness of your own interdependence with so much of the world can help tame these conflictual tendencies. No man or woman is an island, they’re not even city states. You’re as interconnected with all around you as a fish in the ocean.
