The Sun And Moon: The Lights Of Your Life
Your Sun and Moon is the beginning of understanding your Birth Chart and Astrology. These describe your main character traits along with your emotional needs and your individuality. The Moon represents our instinctive nature. The Sun leads toward independence and our personal drive. Both are important aspects of our personality. An awareness of these from the unique placement in your horoscope will indeed give deeper insight into your life and purpose.
The Moon’s energy works from instinct and represents the emotional side of your nature. With no light of its own, it depends on the Sun to light up its presence. Likewise, we are dependent on our caregivers when we are born and our early nurturing creates our emotional roots. We all need to feel we belong, to feel safe, and cared for. All this is the Moon’s domain and motivation. When operating through our Moon, we always need someone or something to make us feel secure. Although a dependant energy it does teach us to relate, to feel compassion and empathy. We all have the basic need for survival and to be loved, but your Moon’s sign and house placement gives more details of your individual needs. Those that have not been met could create a longing and a desire for their fulfillment. Therefore it’s important to understand your Moon’s needs!
We grow into our own light, the Sun, as we grow and mature. This is more an independent energy, one of individuality and our own creative source of energy. The Sun’s motivation helps us to become a distinct and authentic character that possesses not only the ability to survive but also the capacity to make life more meaningful. To achieve this you must give full expression to your Sun Sign, knowing you’re an Aries Gemini or Virgo is not enough. You need to be aware of the underlying energy that your Sun sign represents. This sign represents qualities that you need to develop in constructive ways in order to express who you uniquely are and to become true to yourself.
You should also strive to develop the sphere of life associated with the house in which your Sun is placed. The aspects will inform you what planetary energies your Sun needs to integrate and unitize. All this information is in your Birth Chart and understanding your Sun and Moon is vitally important for your personal development, well-being, and life’s purpose.
