THE SUN IN ASTROLOGY

THE SUN'S JOURNEY THROUGH YOUR CHART

As the Sun makes its way through the sky, we are guided through the journey of the zodiac. We all move through these seasonal shifts together. Starting at the spring equinox, Aries season into Taurus season into Gemini season and so on…

The quality of energy of each sign reverberates through the collective, but on an individual level each season will hold a unique experience based on the house the Sun is moving through in our charts.

The Signs are the HOW

How the energy moves and operates. How we relate to the world around us. How the season feels.

The Houses are the WHAT

How the energy moves and operates. How we relate to the world around us. How the season feels.

For example, it may be flirty and fun Leo season for us all, but Leo falls into the depths of your 12th House - So the outward and fiery energy of Leo season will be oriented inward. Themes of self-undoing and healing come to life in a way we don’t typically associate with Leo season.

Quick, but relevant tangent - This also lends itself to the age old question of many… My birthday is supposed to be the best day of the year but why don’t I ever enjoy it? Your Solar Return, when the Sun in the sky lands in the same position it was when you were born, will feel different and will activate different areas of life for everyone. If you have your Sun in a house that requires contemplation or is stressed in your chart, then your birthday isn’t going to hold those ~birthday vibes~ we are taught to expect. And that's OKAY! In fact, it’s more than okay, it’s divine. Use this information as permission to move through your birthday in a way that feels good to you. Celebrate. Don’t celebrate. Make a scene. Unplug completely. It’s your day. Do whatever you want.

Here is a little insight of the energy of each House Season:

1st

HOUSE SEASON

Is all about you, baby! The first house activates your identity, appearance, and physical body. The first house also initiates themes of beginnings and newness



2nd

HOUSE SEASON

Attention is brought to what you have (or don’t have). The material world takes precedence. Topics of money, personal wealth, values, possessions, self-worth come to the forefront.



3rd

HOUSE SEASON

It’s all in your mind. This season is optimal for doing work around your mindset and thought patterns as you’ll have a very active mind. Themes around your surroundings, neighborhood, and siblings will be highlighted. Don’t be surprised if you feel called to get out andtake a little road trip.



4th

HOUSE SEASON

A season of retreat. The four house is a private house and rules all matters of what happens in the home. Shining a light on the topics of family, home, and emotional past. This is a season to listen for the voice of our ancestors.



5th

HOUSE SEASON

Fun and flirty, romantic and pleasure filled. It’s easy to love a fifth house season. Finding joy in creativity and self-expression. Make looooooove. Your hobbies and the activities you engage in for fun are asking to be picked up and played with.



6th

HOUSE SEASON

This is the season of tending to your duties and daily tasks. Doing what you have to do. Your work life, day-to-day routine, and health are amplified. Making those doctors appointments and cleaning out your inbox.



7th

HOUSE SEASON

Attention is turned to your relational life. Playing nicely with others (or trying to). Themes around compromise, kindness, and balance come to the surface. It is a time to be social, but not to step on any toes.



8th

HOUSE SEASON

Diving into the depths. This is a season of facing our shadow and navigating what’s below the surface. Topics of transformation, loss, inherited finance, psychological health all live in this season. The veil is thin, so you may feel called to engage with spirit.



9th

HOUSE SEASON

A season of learning and growing. Investing in energy in higher education, forming or honoring your beliefs, travel, experiential learning. Get out there and soak up the wisdom that being out in the world can offer.



10th

HOUSE SEASON

A time of strong ambition and drive. Oriented towards goals and mastery. Our public life, status, goals, and purpose are invigorated. But also a time that can feel pressured with high expectations.



11th

HOUSE SEASON

Where dreams take center stage. An idealistic time when a spotlight is shown on our hopes and dreams for the future. Engaging with groups of people that aligned with your visions for the future (Ex. political party, or people you meet in a yoga class - shared interests).



12th

HOUSE SEASON

Rest and healing. The twelfth house season is like navigating the entirety of the ocean. Within it we find shadow, fear, limiting beliefs from our childhood, coping mechanisms and patterns of self-sabotage. It is also a place we find divinity itself and our connection to all things larger than ourselves.



Grab your chart and get a sense of where all the houses are situated.

As you move through the year, you will also move through the house season. This is not a one and done sort of practice. It takes time to really feel into the energy of the house and sign combination, but will bring you closer to your unique journey through the year.
