The sun is the centre of our solar-system and the life-giving force for each and every living being on this planet. It provides us with light and warmth, without which nothing could live or grow. All cultures throughout time have worshiped the Sun as the most important male deity and life-giving force of our universe.
Astrologically, the Sun represents the self or individuality. It is seen as the divine spark within - the vitality and life force, the source of power and creativity. The sun denotes an individual's sense of self-worth and confidence. It represents higher consciousness, cosmic awareness, and the ability to recognize higher truth, which is a way of 'seeing' with the heart (In my heart I know this to be true…). The sun's seat in the body is the solar plexus and the heart.
SUN ~ Purification, self-realisation, creativity, confidence, communication with higher self.
The planets are the wandering stars that travel around the Zodiac and in astrological terminology include Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Modern astrology has added Uranus, Neptune and Pluto to the list. The ancients regarded them as a pantheon of deities whose dynamic interactions had their repercussions in our world. People worshipped and honoured the Gods with rituals and ceremonies or prayed for their divine support in their various endeavours: to win a battle or a maiden's heart, or grant a plentiful harvest and send good weather. Modern astrologers tend to 'psychologize' these deities and regard the planets as parts of the personality.
