The Sun = Power

Which planet represents power?

The SunBy the way astrologers refer to the Sun and Pluto as planets. The word ‘planet’ comes from the Greek and means a moving point of light. Astrologers maintain the use of the word ‘planet’ in its original sense and use it to refer to the cosmic bodies in our solar system which include the 2 lights: the Sun and the Moon.

And astrologers also refer to Pluto as a planet: we are not beholden to the decisions of astronomers who have reclassified Pluto as a ‘dwarf planet’.

A definition of power would include the following: The ability to act with vigour and effectiveness; to act with strength and authority; the capacity to influence and motivate for good or ill; the ability to draw on strength and energy to bring about a desired result; to move with a surge of energy.

Yes each planet has its own unique characteristics which can describe a special type of power. However there is one cosmic body which uniquely reflects the definition of power described above.

It’s not Mercury – amongst other attributes Mercury is associated with communication, transport, messages, wit and exchange, but not power itself. Those who study astrology will know that Venus is associated with love, beauty, pleasure, comfort……. but not power itself.

 The Sun is the body which powers the solar system. It provides us with light and life. No other planet or cosmic body compares with the power might and majesty of the Sun. From a scientific point of view it powers the solar system and is the source of all life on Earth.

To ancient peoples it has represented truth power and everlasting love. From a religious point of view it represented God. In mundane matters it represents royalty. In horary astrology we use the Sun to represent kings, the eagle, the lion, and whatever is at the top of the hierarchy. By transit the Sun empowers.

The Sun is the planet of power, vigour, royalty, authority and vital life giving energy. It outshines and burns any planet comes too close. The Sun, of all the planets, represents power itself.

In the natal horoscope the Sun incorporates a spark of divinity which places humankind at the threshold between heaven and earth, perfection and corruption, the spiritual and the mundane.

How the power of the Sun is expressed in your personal horoscope is shown by the sign in which it is placed, its essential and accidental dignities, and its relationship with the other planets. No two horoscopes are identical and each person has a reflects a unique expression of the power of the Sun.
