Sun in 9th House Synastry – How It Actually Affects Your Relationship Dynamics

sun in 9th house synastry

Did you know that synastry overlays are one of the first things to look at when doing a synastry analysis?

Sun in the 9th house synastry overlay will give us on overview of how our egos interact and how our partner’s creative expression plays out in our life; whether it inspires us or makes us feel belittled. And vice versa.

The Sun is our vital force, it is the main inner driver that gives us a reason to live on this earth, so it is a central part of the horoscope that shouldn’t be overlooked when examining the possible emotional and psychological dynamics of a relationship.

So, what does the Sun in 9th house synastry overlay imply about your relationship?

I will give you ALL possible versions of how this can play out in your life if you just keep reading.

Before I do that, however, I would like to remind you that synastry overlays are actually the SECOND step in compatibility analysis AFTER both charts have been examined separately.

Studying the separate horoscope of each partner is crucial, because this gives imperative insight into what each individual needs in a relationship. The separate horoscopes of both partners reveal hidden emotional patterns, which the individual may not even be aware of. The birth chart of each partner provides important information about how they approach a relationship, what type of relationship is most suitable for their personality and subconscious behavioral patterns, and whether they need to undergo considerable inner growth before they can mature for a long-term union.

Most importantly, the separate horoscope of each individual provides hidden trauma that may be sabotaging each and every relationship they form, which may in turn undermine this particular union if they are not consciously working on alleviating pain from the past.

The position of the Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars should be closely examined in each of the horoscopes, and so should the state of the 1st, 7th, 5th house and their rulers. It is especially critical to look at hard aspect between Moon, Venus, Mars and Saturn and Pluto. Challenging aspects with Saturn will give the individual an inborn inability to express love and would suggest a certain level of maturity before they can get married and create a family.

Difficult aspects with Pluto would suggest deep psychological trauma, an inherent tendency to manipulate and in the case of a Pluto-Mars square even a tendency for violence or attracting aggressive partners.

I have created two step-by-step beginner guides, which to a certain degree cover this very first crucial step of the compatibility analysis in the following articles, which I believe you should check out before you continue with synastry overlays:

In the birth chart, the Sun represents the center of our personality, just as the Sun is the center of the solar system.

The Sun’s position in the natal chart – by sign, house and aspects creates the fundamental basis of our character, on which all other influences from the other planets are superimposed. For this reason, when we compare the birth charts of two people, we first pay attention to the relative position of their Suns. Although the streams of influence between two people flow through different energy channels, connecting different points of their horoscopes, the Sun with its representation of the ego is one of the principal channels of interaction that needs to be examined.

In synastry analysis, when we do an overlay of two birth horoscopes, your partner’s Sun falls in one of the twelve houses of your horoscope. In each of these twelve positions, it sets a certain color for your relationship and shows an area of ​​your life where the other will have a strong influence.
