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!

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.

Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac and is therefore the most complex. Through the Pisces energy, the vibrations of the water element, which control emotions, feelings and experiences, reach their apogee.

This is especially evident in Sun in Pisces love relationships. They are extremely sentimental and romantic in love. Neptune, the ruling planet of this sign, has a rather unrealistic and vague view of reality. Very often these people put the object of their feelings on a pedestal. After a while, they notice with surprise that in fact their loved one is also ‘made of’ flesh and blood and has certain weaknesses.

Then they suffer a brutal collapse of their dreams and ideals. They take down their beloved from the pedestal and throw it in the mud, experiencing great inner disappointment.

If Sun in Pisces representatives find themselves in such a situation, they should realize that they have created the preconditions for this themselves.

First of all, you should not put anyone on a pedestal, because everyone has both positive and negative traits. Secondly, you should not react too sharply towards a partner’s weaknesses and negative personality traits. If you suddenly notice that a person has certain shortcomings, it probably means that they have always been present, but you simply did not notice them or did not pay enough attention to them.

If you really love someone, you must accept them as they are, along with their positive and negative traits.

Unfortunately, sometimes Sun in Pisces misunderstands this. Some of them agree to live with their partner at any cost and under any circumstances. They agree to endure humiliation, mental harassment, even physical violence and all kinds of other abuse. They believe that in this way they will somehow make their partner change.

Sun in Pisces are prone to imagining that one day, they will wake up from this nightmare, their partner will be a new person and they will live happily ever after. But these are illusions. Their dreams are not going to turn into reality if they continue to fantasize.

This is difficult to achieve for Sun in Pisces representatives due to the very nature of their sign.

The main keywords for Pisces are “rich imagination” and “boundless fantasy”.

If they want to extract the maximum potential of this sun placement, they should try to put into good practice the bold flight of their dreams.

For example, many Sun in Pisces representatives have a successful career in the field of art – painting, music, theater, cinema, dance and sometimes literature.

Sun in Pisces are also characterized by very strong intuition and imagination. They can be extremely emotional. At one point they can experience great happiness, and then go to the other extreme in a matter of minutes.  The reason for these mood swings is their deep emotional nature. They are always ready to help others and happy to devote much of their time to this.

Sun in Pisces inherently wish to serve others. For them the shortest way to reach God is to put themselves in the service of others, because this sign was created for that – to heal and to relieve the pain of other people.

Pisces’ desire to escape reality can also be unfolded in a positive direction if they are involved in professions that require them to use their artistic talent, rich imagination and creative thinking. They are able to thrive in almost all kinds of arts, music, dancing, singing, etc. Many prominent representatives of art have Sun in Pisces.

Some of them appear in the field of painting and music, but also in other fields. Many are unsurpassed actors. The reason is that once they go on stage, they forget about their own problems and fully embody the character they play. They do not like to expose their own identity. However, if they play a role, they can fully incarnate in the given image. They do not show themselves, but portray a fictitious hero and this is where their strength lies.

So it is with other arts.

Sun in Pisces Bad Traits and Personality Challenges

Unfortunately, there is a second category of people with a Sun in Pisces, who entirely go with the flow of their fantasies, close themselves in their own fictional world and waste their lives without being able to achieve anything. So “escape from reality ”is also a key definition of this sign.

All Sun in Pisces representatives make some attempt to escape from reality.

In some cases, it can manifest itself as empty daydreaming, poor organization and lack of focus. In more serious cases, the body develops dependence on harmful substances such as tobacco and alcohol.

Sun in Pisces have the fame of people, who can abuse both. In the most severe cases, this can extend to drug and opiate addiction and abuse. Sun in Pisces must be very careful, as their body has a particularly high susceptibility to becoming highly dependent on such substances.

The symbol of this sign is depicted as two fish swimming in opposite directions. One of them floats downstream, the other upstream, and they are both connected in the middle by a rope that is placed horizontally.

This is a very interesting symbol with an extremely deep meaning. Here we will present only its most superficial interpretation. It is obvious that one of the fish that swims downstream is in a state of regression. The other, which floats upstream, is in a state of progress. The upward movement depicts spiritual aspiration and gradual liberation from the urgency of the material world, while the downward movement means an escape from reality and an even greater attachment to matter.

The rope is twisted by many threads, symbolizing the earth’s limitations. They all hold us together firmly, i.e. our spirit is attached to the earthly matter. The rope is arranged horizontally, and the horizon is nothing but the intersection line formed at the intersection of the two worlds – the spiritual (heaven) and the material (Earth).

In other words, the thread connecting the two fish, calls on Sun in Pisces representatives to find the golden ground between their great potential for spiritual insights and the need to realize these insights in material terms.

The dualism of this sign is clearly visible in this symbol. Pisces, as it is known, is one of the dual signs of the Zodiac, therefore its representatives can follow one of the two paths of development. Some of them have been swimming down the river all their lives. They perceive life in material reality as too  complicated and difficult. It is incomparably easier for them to build beautiful air towers where they do not have to face the difficulties of everyday life.

The other Sun in Pisces representatives swim against the current. They use their strong intuition, imagination and idealism to change the existing primitive conditions on Earth into something better and more sublime.

Which of these two categories the specific representative of this zodiac sign will focus on depends on the practical orientation of the natal chart as a whole.

The general rule is to see how much the earth element is represented in the chart. If it has at least 2-3 planets in Earth signs, then things would be easier for them. However, given that the earth element is completely absent, then there is high probability that a large part of the given person’s potential will remain in the sphere of desires and will not be realized in practice. If so, he or she must struggle hard to develop a certain practicality.

Sun in Pisces True Mission

astrology cheatsheets

sun in pisces

Each sign of the Zodiac was created to fulfill a strictly defined important mission in life. For this reason, each was created with unique talent. Using this talent, each of the zodiac signs is able to fulfill their mission.

When it comes to Pisces, being the last in the zodiac, they were assigned with the most difficult missions possible.  It consisted of gathering all the human suffering that exists in the world and returning it to the Creator. He wanted every human tear to become his own tear. The suffering and pain of men are not caused by the Creator. They are caused by the misunderstanding, misinterpretation, and misapplication of His ideas. Every time, when an idea of ​​His is misunderstood, it leads to suffering.

Therefore, the mission of Pisces is to show compassion, mercy and understanding to all suffering people in the world. This is how they give them the strength to get back on their feet and move forward. This is the most difficult task.

And in order to be able to perform it successfully, Sun in Pisces are also given the greatest gift – the ability to understand God! This understanding is given only to Pisces and no one else. The Creator has made it impossible for them to share this knowledge with any оf the other zodiac signs.

So, every time Sun in Pisces try to share with others their understanding of God, they are not being accepted.  That is why Pisces is the sign, which is characterized by blurring, obscurity, cloudiness, impracticality, etc.

The manifestation of the Pisces energy does not always happen in its highest vibration.

For example, Pisces by definition don’t want to hurt others. Here, too, a problem arises. For example, they can find it difficult to resolve an emotional situation where they are in a victim position – where they are being insulted, mistreated, used, etc. At first glance, it seems that the most rational way to avoid such a bad situation is simply to end the relationship.

For Sun in Pisces, however, this is very hard to implement. They practically can’t say “no” to their partner, because they don’t want to hurt him or her. That is why many of them suffer locked in ridiculous, impossible relationships.

Sometimes they endure years of violence, alcoholism, insults, swearing and abuse. Their excuse may be something like “I do it for the sake of the children”. They are able to find many excuses for their irrational behavior.

Most of their explanations do not follow any logic. In general, with Sun in Pisces, it is very common for one of the partners to be a victim and the other a savior. The Savior eventually sacrifices themselves and their own interests to save the “victim”.

The auras of Sun in Pisces people are like absorbent mushrooms

astrology cheatsheets

sun in pisces

They absorb the energy of the people around them. It does not matter whether this energy is positive or negative. They suck everything in. Therefore, it is advisable to be careful what people they communicate with. They cannot stand being in the company of people with “contaminated” auras.

Sun in Pisces astral defense is extraordinarily weak.

They are also extremely secretive. They almost never provide others with all the information about what they do, what they plan and what they think. This is often because they do not have a specific answer to these questions themselves or because they do not know how to express their thoughts through ordinary language.

We said that Pisces has the greatest gift of all – the ability to understand God! But they are not given the opportunity to convey this information in verbal form.

Until now, there has never been a person who has been able to embody the divine essence in words. Thousands of thinkers, philosophers and mystics have written on this subject, and thousands of philosophical volumes and teachings have been written. But even if all the books on this earth are collected, read, and assimilated, even then we can say that we have only touched the vast essence of God! He is so incommensurably greater than our limited intellectual human notions!

But how can Sun in Pisces at least partially pass on their knowledge of God?

The answer is – through art! Through art, Pisces gives us information that cannot be spoken in any way.

Sun in Pisces Emotional Profile

astrology cheatsheets

sun in pisces

Pisces are secretive, mysterious and covert. We are already beginning to understand the reason why so. In relation to their friends, they are distinguished by affection and loyalty, but not always with honesty and openness. Too many underwater currents and vortices boil in the depths of their souls.

Sun in Pisces avoid open conflicts and oppositions. However, if they have to protect a friend who has fallen out of favor, they do so in a soft and delicate way.

Sun in Pisces sensitivity is so great that even a relatively innocent gesture or word can deeply hurt them and throw them off their emotional balance for a long time. Therefore, they should develop the ability to not to perceive things so deeply and too personally.

Sun in Pisces lack penetration, energy and a large supply of vital energy. That’s why many of them look lazy. That’s not exactly right. It’s just that their methods of action are so timid and hidden that their presence is sometimes difficult to notice by others. In general, however, many of them like to postpone today’s work for tomorrow and move in the direction of the least resistance. So, it would be good if they work on themselves and correct some of these negative qualities.

They could spend some time alone during  the day to replenish the scarce supply of energy they have. The rest of the time, though, it would be a good idea to go out into the world and fight to achieve concrete results in material reality.

Pisces in most cases instinctively feel their strengths and weaknesses even before they are revealed to them through astrology. Unfortunately, many of them develop an inferiority complex or close themselves up, finding a reason to escape from reality and the problems of life!

Sun in Pisces should focus not only on their weaknesses, but use their strengths to overcome them. They should strive to practically apply their talents and abilities.

One of the biggest disadvantages of Sun in Pisces is their unwillingness or inability to face the truth. This is the route of many secondary problems. For example, they do not want to discuss the real situation with their partners so as not to hurt them. They prefer to talk around or even lie. Unfortunately, after repeating a lie hundreds of times, they are starting to believe that this is the truth itself. In this way, they incur a number of problems in the long run and inflict irreparable damage.

It is very important for Sun in Pisces to understand that the delusions, lies and self-deceptions to which their personal planet Neptune pushes them are at the root of the biggest problems and challenges they face.

For Pisces, this becoming even more important, especially from now on for the next 2000 years in the almost fully developed era of Aquarius. The last two millennia have passed under the sign of Pisces, ruled by Neptune. During these years, people have managed to get away in some way through delusions, frauds and lies. It can even be said that this behavior was somewhat justified for its time. Neptune also governs religion and blind faith.

But from now on, in the age of Aquarius, ruled by Uranus, this already becomes impossible. You can already see how all people in the world connected to the unified system for exchanging information on the internet know almost everything about everyone. It can be said that this process of openness is only beginning.

Therefore, with each passing year, it will become more and more difficult for Sun in Pisces individuals and those with a strong Neptune in their chart to live in their delusions. If they do not wish to adapt voluntarily, life itself will force them into more realism, objectivism and adherence to the truth!

In the specific chart of the individual, the placement of Mercury could help a lot

astrology cheatsheets

If this planet of mind and communication is located in Aries and especially in Aquarius, in any case there is a lot more truthful thinking. If Mercury is also in Pisces and especially if it is struck by negatives aspects, the objective perception of the world becomes the first and urgent task for these people. Especially problematic are the negative aspects from the Moon, Jupiter and Neptune to the Sun.

In that case, the person may simply not be able to see their true path in life and wander from one delusion to another.

Sun in Pisces Children

astrology cheatsheets

sun in pisces

Pisces children should be encouraged to tell the truth from an early age!

These children are distinguished by a rich imagination and fantasy. When they tell a story, they tend to enhance it with so many additional details that the story finally has almost nothing to do with the truth.

Sun in Pisces children should be encouraged early on to pursue hobbies in which they find practical application of their rich imagination.

All kinds of activities related to art, dance, music and drama would have a very positive effect. They should be gently encouraged to advance in their chosen occupation, as their self-esteem can easily be hurt.

Sun in Pisces Parents

astrology cheatsheets

sun in pisces

As parents, Sun in Pisces put their children first. But they shouldn’t forget that they tend to look for the easiest way out of difficult communication situations with the child. In the long run, this can be the most difficult way possible.

For example, as parents, Pisces rarely gives specific, real instructions to their children on what behavior to follow in life. This may be partially due to the fact that they themselves do not always want to face reality.

On the other hand, because they prefer to take the path of least opposition, they tell a lie or repeat a cliché heard on the radio or television, instead of giving difficult explanations about the subtleties of life. And so their children grow up “in a pot”, without real contact with life.

Later, they may have to learn in a particularly difficult way which behaviors are right and which are not.

The other scenario that Sun in Pisces parents adhere to is the complete lifting of all prohibitions. They choose the easiest path, which in the long run turns out to be the most difficult one.

Instead of standing up face to face with a relatively small problem in the upbringing of their children at an early age, they prefer to close their eyes and go around it. Thus, the small problem becomes huge after years. Therefore, Sun in Pisces must learn to say “no” when their children are young, and not try to control them later when they are older. Boundless parental love and permission to do whatever they want can do as much harm to children (if not more) as excessive strictness and constant control.

Sun in Pisces Career

astrology cheatsheets

sun in pisces

In their career, Sun in Pisces representatives are not particularly ambitious. They prefer to perform their duties in the background, helping others wholeheartedly. It is good for them to choose a profession related to caring for other people. We can often see them in the role of nurses, doctors, supervisors or social workers. They like their work to be associated with a certain solitude and care for others.

We already mentioned that they also become excellent actors and playwrights. Any profession related to the arts is suitable for these people or any other activities through which they can develop their rich imagination.

Sun in Pisces aura resonates extremely strongly in the presence of human suffering. That’s why they become good psychotherapists, psychiatrists and psychologists. Many of them dedicate themselves to religion and spiritual teachings. Especially if the Sun is in the 12th house, their life is certainly connected with some spiritual service. This also applies to the placement of the Sun in the 8th house.

Pisces is one of the double signs of the Zodiac, so its representatives often take up two professions or have income from two places. Some of them are attracted by the brilliance of certain professions. They find a field for expression, for example, in television or cinema, especially if the Sun is well aspected to Neptune; if one of these planets is in the 3rd house, or one of them is in positive aspects to Mercury. Others are attracted by the charm of haute couture. They most likely have positive aspects between the Sun, Neptune or Venus, most likely from the 2nd or 10th house.

Sun in Pisces Love Life and Relationships

astrology cheatsheets

sun in pisces

In their love relationships, Sun in Pisces are hopeless romantics.

They are extremely loving, gentle, devoted, loyal and sentimental. In no case can it be said that they are characterized by an insatiable sex drive. Rather, the opposite is true. Their romantic and sentimental affection can be expressed in a soft and unobtrusive way. At the same time, however, they rarely perceive their partner objectively. In most cases, they prefer to wear their favorite pink glasses.

The Sun in Pisces partner is often idealized, adored and placed on a pedestal. It is only after some time that some of his or her worst qualities become apparent that the Sun in Pisces person can begin to gradually realize the truth.

As in any other area of ​​life, Sun in Pisces would benefit much more if they build their relationship on solid and objective ground from the very beginning.

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