Each of the planets in our horoscope represents a certain type of energy that flows within us. A very specific type of energy that shapes different aspects of our personality.

The science of astrology is built on the assumption that we, as human beings are a mini-representation of the universe itself, and that we experience the influences of all 10 planets within us – through our life and consciousness.

Now think about the role of the Sun in our solar system – it is the only celestial body that shines with its own light. It is the ultimate force that gives light, warmth, and life to ALL other planets and forms of life.

It is a never-ending creative source that nourishes and lights up the whole solar system!

This is why, although it is correct when modern astrologers say we need the whole natal chart drawn up in order to fully understand and comprehend one’s personality, we cannot belittle the significance of the Sun, and put it on the same plane as our Moon and Rising signs.

The correct approach would be to understand the more profound meaning of your Sun in Aquarius placement and to consciously strive to live by its higher manifestations.

The Aspects towards your Sun in Aquarius provide the following information

sun in aquarius

Each planet in aspect with the Sun represents energy or archetype, associated (in a positive or negative way) with the development of our individuality, personality and self-expression.

We need to find constructive ways to incorporate this energy into our lives (perhaps through vocation, inherent to the same planet). For example, a person with the Sun in aspect with Neptune must in some form meet Neptune in the process of individualization. They should express the planet in the form of Neptunian career, such as healing, music or art.

It is possible to feel the aspects of the Sun through other people in our lives (especially in oppositions). For example, a man with the Sun in opposition to Saturn will see others as limiting and blocking.

Ultimately, we will have to embrace and integrate these qualities, which we usually project on others.

The nature of the planet, aspecting the Sun, colors the problems with the father and the animus.

The people ruled by Uranus are able to serve you all sorts of surprises.

Although benevolent and calm by nature, Sun in Aquarius representatives usually like to contradict the generally accepted opinion and with secret pleasure throw off balance those unprepared for their unusual actions.

They are usually careful and polite, but sometimes able to startle you in an instant with unexpected words or actions that fall like thunder from the clear sky. The typical uranium personality is something in between Albert Einstein and Mickey Mouse. He doesn’t care if the sandals, shoes or sneakers he is wearing are appropriate for the occasion.

In order to demonstrate their unwillingness to comply with generally accepted rules, Sun in Aquarius sometimes deliberately dress in a very strange way.

A characteristic feature of Uranus’ representatives is the combination of seemingly incompatible qualities – they can be funny, original, arrogant, independent, and at the same time they can be responsive, insecure, diplomatic and considerate.

Sun in Aquarius strive for a crowded environment and are able to have countless friendships. But at some point you may see them gloomy and frowning, seeking solitude. They have two main states – communication and isolation.

Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius makes these people rebels by nature. It brings the instinctive feeling that the old is doomed and that the world needs a revolutionary changes.

With good reason this sun sign is considered a sign of genius, because over seventy percent of the most famous personalities of mankind are with a Sun in Aquarius or an Aquarius acendent. It is also true that a large proportion of psychiatric patients in clinics are of the same zodiac sign. It is known that the line between genius and madness is sometimes invisible. If you have acquaintances ruled by Uranus, you must have wondered which side of the border they are on.

Another reason why Aquarius is often subjected to hostile criticism is that they are capable of type of any surprises. As they have headed west, they will suddenly stop, and, without even warning you, they will head east. Sun in Aquarius like to keep you unaware of their plans.

Sun in Aquarius Best Traits

sun in aquarius

Those born with a Sun in Aquarius are friendly, independent, original and individualistic. They are usually optimistic, even when going through difficulties in life.

Sun in Aquarius rarely lose hope and this quality helps them move forward.

For them, friendship and belonging to a particular group, organization, or society is often more important than their intimate relationship with a particular person. This is because they have the ability to see the “big picture” of society as a whole.

On a conscious or subconscious level, they want everyone to live well. They realize that many people around the world live in much worse conditions. They understand that the happiness of one person cannot be built on the unhappiness of another. That is why they are guided by the desire to see all people in the world live in harmony, brotherhood and equality. Hence the goodwill they radiate towards others.

Sun in Aquarius are extremely original. Therefore, although they insist on equal rights, they also respect the right of each member of the team to be unique and to have a unique individuality.

They can often predict trends that will manifest in society in many years.

However, this behavior, often misunderstood by others, seems strange or abnormal. Sometimes others describe Sun in Aquarius as having arrived from another planet, another galaxy, or another dimension. By the way, sometimes this can be justified. The important thing here is to understand that the originality, unpredictability and eccentric behavior of Aquarius are the result of their ability to adapt to certain wavelengths, coming from the future.

Usually Sun in Aquarius people fit very well into a team.

Naturally, they manifest their originality and ingenuity, but do not have much friction with others. They don’t like gossip and intrigues. Sun in Aquarius try their best to avoid conflict situations and direct confrontation. But they are always ready to defend their opinion, especially when it comes to principles, ideals or ideas.

Sun in Aquarius Bad Traits and Personality Challenges

sun in aquarius

The air element does not have a lot of physical energy. This quality is associated with fire.

Therefore, if Sun in Aquarius representatives do not have other planets in fire signs, their level of physical energy is relatively low. For this reason, they may find it hard to complete the projects they have started.

Sun in Aquarius must have a realistic attitude towards the number of tasks they can perform simultaneously. This would allow them to preserve their energy for important projects, bringing them to a successful conclusion.

Sun in Aquarius are always ready to discuss new concepts. But they lack the patience to work with people, who are conservative and constantly opposed to change. On the other hand, Aquarius may often oppose certain decisions simply out of stubbornness or because they want to be different from everyone else. They do not like routine work, but can adapt well if it is unavoidable.

Sun in Aquarius often find it hard to comply with the established deadlines. They should not be expected to be accurate and to appear on time for scheduled appointments.

Aquarius is one of the fixed signs, so its representatives are difficult to change. Usually in their youth, these people are at the forefront of innovation and are too advanced for their time. After years, however, things in life change, and those born with this sun placement may remain fixed in their ideas and beliefs.

This is why Sun in Aquarius must periodically review the ideas and beliefs they profess and adjust their clock over time. This is especially true for those, who have already passed to the second or third phase of their life. (Usually people go into the second phase of life at the age of forty, and in the third at the age of sixty.)

Sun in Aquarius representatives usually find it very painful when they face situations when they have to wait a long time to make a decision.

If the decision is made suddenly, no matter what it is, they can quickly adapt to it. If they have to wait a long time for something or if they feel that something will happen, but they do not know when, it can ruin their psyche.

For example, they should not live in a miserable state of mind ten years before retiring, because they are waiting for it. Sun in Aquarius must gradually create new interests and hobbies in order for the transition to take place smoothly and painlessly. At best, they can develop a post-retirement action plan to carry out activities that would even help their budget.

Sun in Aquarius True Mission

astrology cheatsheets

sun in aquarius

All signs of the Zodiac have their specific mission and are endowed with specific abilities and talents, so that they can successfully complete it.

The Sun in Aquarius mission is to find new paths and solutions to various problems. Without this zodiac sign, humanity would be mired in routine and monotonous behavior.

Apparently, there need to be people, who periodically take it out of this lethargic state and show it new ways and solutions to problems. This task is entrusted to Aquarius.

On the other hand, in order to successfully complete their mission, Sun in Aquarius are given the ability to anticipate future trends and see things from an angle that no one else can.

Many people born under this sign do it unconsciously.

In order to be able to fulfill their mission successfully, Sun in Aquarius need to be independent. The Aquarius mission is to work for the whole society and to improve the living conditions for all.

Therefore, Sun in Aquarius has the greatest difficulty in settling down, compared to other signs. Hence their characteristic behavior – they are very friendly, especially when socializing, but they always keep a certain distance when it comes to intimate relationships.

Aquarius is an air sign, and the element air is associated with intellectuality. Air is necessary for Sun in Aquarius representatives not only figuratively, but also literally. They have extremely original, philosophical thinking, and are able to think logically and analytically.

Sun in Aquarius Children

astrology cheatsheets

sun in aquarius

The need to be independent, autonomous and original is manifested in their early childhood, too. Sometimes Sun in Aquarius children can show great stubbornness. In this case, it may be better if the parents  asked the child to do exactly the opposite of what they actually want him or her to do.

From an early age Sun in Aquarius are very friendly to others. This applies not only to their classmates at school, but also to strangers they meet on the street. They can readily get on the car of a stranger. This can be especially dangerous. That’s why it’s important for their parents to instruct them not to do this from an early age.

Sun in Aquarius children need an atmosphere at school that allows them to develop as unique individuals. Educational institutions, where the emphasis is on order, discipline and accurate memorization of academic material can wreck havoc on the Aquarius child’s emotional and intellectual development.

However, Sun in Aquarius children are rational and always listen if given a good argument. This is a positive quality that helps them throughout  their whole life.

Sun in Aquarius Parents

astrology cheatsheets

sun in aquarius

As parents, Sun in Aquarius raise their children in an atmosphere of freedom, independence and originality. They always have a personal individual attitude towards their children’s education.

We must not forget that children may be much more conservative than their parents. Children should not be pushed to walk a path that is not theirs. The child may need discipline, routine, and a traditional perception of the world.

Sun in Aquarius parents need to understand that and take it into account, whether they like it or not. They need to learn to actually listen to what their children have to say and periodically adjust their beliefs with the perceptions of the younger generation.

No matter what, Sun in Aquarius are usually very good parents, who try to play the role of a catalyst to enable the talents and abilities of their children to manifest themselves optimally.

Sun in Aquarius Health

astrology cheatsheets

sun in aquarius

In terms of health, the weak points of Aquarius are the blood circulation, the nervous system and the ankles. As representatives of the air sign, they need fresh air.

Sun in Aquarius should choose an exercise routine in which there is more of a fun element than being monotonous and exhausting.

It is best for them to eat light but nutritious food. They usually prefer a relatively cold climate. In winter, Sun in Aquarius should wear clothes that are windproof and warm, while at the same time not restrictive of their freedom of movement.

As the ankles are controlled by Aquarius and can be vulnerable, it is recommended that they be further exercised and strengthened. High shoes that protect sprained ankles are recommended for those born under this sign, especially if they love skiing and winter sports.

Sun in Aquarius Love and Relationships

astrology cheatsheets

sun in aquarius

Aquarius is an air sign and in their intimate relationships they mainly focus on communication and interaction with their partner. I

n their personal relationships, Sun in Aquarius do not like to impose themselves and to obsess the partner. They do not accept such an attitude towards themselves, either.

Claustrophobic relationships, filled with jealousy and a partner, who desires to obsess over them completely can throw them off balance.

Sun in Aquarius are looking for an intellectual relationship based on friendliness, where both partners are given a great deal of freedom of action.

Because they are highly independent and self-sufficient, Sun in Aquarius usually marry rather late, or do not marry at all. For them, marriage is an institution that puts their personal freedom to the test. Because marriage connects partners as a whole, it presupposes limitations, both psychologically, and physically.

However, once they decide to take this step, Sun in Aquarius are usually quite loyal to their partners and form long-lasting and stable relationships. There is almost always a certain romantic element in their behavior. They have strong feelings, but usually do not show them, especially when they are in a public place or in the company of other people.

That is why Sun in Aquarius often have the glory of being cold and insensitive. The position of Venus is important in this case, as it can greatly modify their behavior in this sphere of life.

Since this is such a vast topic to cover, I have dedicated separate articles to it.
