Transits to the Sun Signal Change of Energy
Sun symbolizes your energy. Transit (or solar arc) to your natal Sun signals the time for your energy to evolve. Here we’ll discuss contacts from Jupiter through Pluto to the natal Sun (use hard aspects only – conjunction, square, opposition or quindecile.)
Jupiter to Sun: Time to Expand & Uplift Your Energy
Transiting Jupiter conjunct Sun should be a bright time of reward. It could be a gratifying period of promotion or recognition, or a carefree period of travel and leisure. It could also be an inspirational time filled with spiritual studies. The end result is that your energy lightens up and expands to perceive positive and uplifting aspects of life.
Saturn to Sun: Time to Concentrate and Commit Your Energy
Like chiaroscuro painting, Saturn adds shadow to your light, adding definition and depth to your energy. There is usually a dampening of energy due to extra weight of responsibility or grief. Perhaps a new, serious decision is made that causes you to work harder in a new direction. The result is that your energy will shift into a more focused and mature state.
Uranus to Sun: Time to Free Your Energy From Confinement
During this period, your mental energy increases in intensity and seeks free expression. Uranus transit can signal the blooming of individuality through the pursuit of new ideas. It can also suggest a time to break free from oppressing patterns in your life, both external and internal.
Neptune to Sun: Time to Refine Your Energy
Neptune dissolves and refines your ego energy. This may lead to an awakening of humility and compassion in some people, and inspire artistic vision or deceptive illusion in others. Your energy might soften in intensity, and acquire a gentler, subtler quality like that of an impressionist painting. Sometimes this is a time of quiet surrender and reflection, other times that of an inspired effort.
Pluto to Sun: Time to Rediscover Your Energy
Pluto symbolizes the process of plumbing the depth in order to reach heights. Pluto transit or solar arc could be traumatic for a young child, as it may represent the first glimpse into the dark side of life. For an adult, it could mark a time of empowerment or a sudden change of perspective through an initiation-like process.
Conclusion: Your Energy Evolves Through Time
Your energy is a sum total of your character, thoughts and decisions. Transits or solar arc to your natal Sun might reveal the ways in which your energy is shifting – but it could also be suggesting how you need to evolve at this moment through conscious choices.
If your energy level is chronically low, consider the ongoing transits and solar arcs to see what needs to change in order for you to keep evolving with the flow of time.
