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 Sagittarius placement and to consciously strive to live by its higher manifestations.

The Aspects towards your Sun in Sagittarius provide the following information

sun in sagittarius

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.

All the signs of the Zodiac were created sequentially, one after the other, starting from Aries and ending with Pisces.

The zodiac signs belong consecutively to four elements in the following order – fire, earth, air and water. At the end of a cycle, they begin to repeat again in the same sequence. There are twelve signs of the Zodiac and four elements, which means that each element will manifest a total of three times. The first manifestation of the element determines its energy in its purest form.

Sagittarius is a fire sign. Fire in astrology is associated with enthusiasm, energy and the desire to act. In its purest form, this energy first appears in Aries. There, enthusiasm is focused on personal development and achievements.

For the second time we see this energy in Leo, where it appears in the form of creativity and creation.

In Sagittarius, this same energy is manifested in its highest form, where it is an embodiment of the search of meaning of life.

Hence all the keywords with which this sign is known. The main one is expansion. This one word applies to Sun in Sagittarius representatives in every sphere of life. The main goal is to expand consciousness. Hence their philosophical bias, their desire to travel abroad, their interest in law, religion, etc.

Enlargement is the main action that characterizes Jupiter, the ruling planet of Sagittarius.

This can also be clearly seen in its physical size. It is the largest planet in the solar system. In fact, even if all the other planets were gathered together in one sphere, it would still be smaller than Jupiter.

At its best, Sagittarius is the philosopher of the Zodiac. Sun in Sagittarius want to build a comprehensive understanding of how the universe works. That is why they are so engaged in its constant exploration.

The problem, however, is that the universe is infinitely complex and intricate. It is only when they touch on one important aspect that they see another and immediately turn to it. So, they can jump from one subject to another all their lives, without ever studying any of them in sufficient depth.

Sun in Sagittarius have a very broad perspective on things, but a number of important details and facts escape their knowledge. And this is what their Achilles heel is all about.

Sun in Sagittarius Best Traits

sun in sagittarius

Sun in Sagittarius have an extremely good heart and enviable optimism. They are always busy learning something and always strive to enrich their knowledge. Unfortunately, however, they rarely have all the facts in decision-making and as a result they often find themselves in quite confusing, complex and difficult situations.

Sun in Sagittarius are like grown-up children, who are burning with the desire to constantly experiment with something.

They are constantly filled with enthusiasm and excitement about what awaits them on the next corner. Their heart is big and full of good intentions. But in fact, they know little about the world, even if they think they know a lot.

Sun in Sagittarius knowledge can be extremely superficial and incomplete if they don’t consciously choose to deepen it. Fortunately for them, their personal planet Jupiter rules luck. These people are inherently lucky. This is especially true for those Sagittarians, who have Jupiter well aspected to the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Uranus or Neptune. Also the conjunction of Jupiter with any of the above-mentioned planets has a very beneficial effect. Then it can actually be said that Sun in Sagittarius were born under a lucky star.

The exact sphere of luck is shown by the location of Jupiter in the houses as well as its aspects. The nature of the aspected planet itself is also important.

By nature, Sun in Sagittarius are organized, kind, loyal and honest. They inherently lack qualities such as meanness, dishonesty, and manipulativeness.

They try to come to the rescue as much as they can. They are usually honest and open. Sun in Sagittarius behavior is as simple as possible and is devoid of veiling, following certain labels of behavior and excessive tact.

In fact, Sagittarians are well-known for the fact that they lack even basic tact, but they never intentionally hurt or offend anyone. Their heart is too broad and aspiring to the big picture of life. And while their gaze is fixed on the heavens, they do not pay close attention to those closest to them.

But even when Sun in Sagittarius realize their mistake, they are again too busy with the big picture to take time for unnecessary sentimentality. So, they move forward boldly again.

But why are Sun in Sagittarius people born lucky and why are they doing well in life?

astrology cheatsheets

sun in sagittarius

The answer to this question is rooted in the quality of the energy, emitted by Sagittarius. Sagittarius Sun people, regardless of age, are like children – they are overwhelmed with enthusiasm and excitement, but do not understand all the possible consequences that their reckless actions expose both themselves and others. This responsibility and understanding is manifested only in the next sign – Capricorn.

For example, suppose you have young children, who have just learned how to walk. They poke back and forth and touch everything in a row, thus endangering themselves and others. What would you do as an adult responsible for their behavior? You would probably take appropriate safety measures. For example, you will put safety plugs in the sockets, you will hide knives, forks, matches and other dangerous objects. Then you will watch over them as much as possible, interfering periodically to prevent any major trouble.

The moments when you interfere can be interpreted by children as great luck. It is so, because if you did not intervene at the right time, there could have been a serious injury, cutting, fire, etc.

The Creator acts in the same way with regard to people born wih a Sun in Sagittarius.

He constantly tries to protect them from their own hasty and reckless actions. He intervenes in order to prevent any great misfortune or to minimize the damage caused by them. So, actually, Sun in Sagittarius have no particular reason to be proud to have been born under a lucky star. Before taking with ease this special favor from above, they should be very well aware of why they are the darlings of destiny. Usually the strong signs of the Zodiac do not need such special care. They can cope on their own in difficult life situations. They can take responsibility for themselves and for their actions.

Sun in Sagittarius feel that their lives are going well and like to bet everything. In general, they are characterized by an extremely gambling spirit, which for some may get out of control. They love to go on adventures, love to travel and appreciate communication with representatives from other continents and countries.

Here, the difference between Sun in Sagittarius and the other fire signs of the Zodiac is clear. While Aries love challenges and adventures because of their personal development, and Leos love the development of their sexuality and creativity, Sagittarius follow this path to expand their consciousness and discover the meaning of life.

Sun in Sagittarius Bat Traits and Personality Challenges

In their pursuit to explore the world in its entirety, however, Sun in Sagittarius may miss important details that later lead to serious problems. Still, their lucky star comes to the rescue again and saves them even in the most difficult situations. This is how they never lose their optimism and faith that something better awaits them in the future.

Sun in Sagittarius are hopeless optimists. They often argue about trifles simply because they like discussions. They are extremely friendly and quickly make new friends. They can go to the other side of the world and never be lonely, because they have found new friends along the way.

Their superficiality, however, can surface here, too. As quickly as they make new acquaintances,  they can lose interest. Why bother maintaining old friendships when they can start new ones? So, they can jump from one acquaintance to another without being able to boast that they have real friends who have stood the test of time.

If not evolved, Sun in Sagittarius can have a pretty superficial communication style, too.

For hours they can enjoy talking about trivial topics. However, if the conversation starts to go deep or touch deep psychological problems, they quickly change the subject and get around the issue. This is because they are do not have the necessary training and knowledge to cope with the complex themes that relate to the depths of the human soul.

Sun in Sagittarius are characterized by a sense of humor and an extremely cheerful attitude to life, but their jokes can often be harsh and hurt the feelings of others.

Of course, they do not do it intentionally and they are not filled with evil intentions. But Sagittarians need to understand that what is just a joke to them can deeply hurt someone else’s feelings.

Sun in Sagittarius can playfully joke, sing and have fun without noticing that the time and place is not appropriate. In this way, their behavior can also be interpreted as profanity, with all the ensuing consequences.

Sun in Sagittarius True Meaning and Life Mission

astrology cheatsheets

sun in sagittarius

After all, despite the recklessness of actions and lack of tact, moderation and understanding of things, it is this sign of the Zodiac which is called by the Universe to develop wisdom and higher knowledge.

This is why the first step for Sun in Sagittarius is to acknowledge the fact that many important details escape their consciousness. Therefore, they need to purposefully develop a greater depth of their knowledge in at least several fields, selected by them.

Sun in Sagittarius should also understand that it is precisely because of the lack of in-depth knowledge that they are able to make big mistakes.

If they create a negative situation, rather than shake their heads carelessly and immediately move on to another goal, they should stop and learn a lesson from what happened.

And finally, it is advisable for Sagittarians to slow down. As a fire sign, they live in a constant fast pace. This haste stems from their belief that the sooner they finish something, the more time they will have to finish something else. Usually, however, in their hastiness, they allow serious mistakes.

Sun in Sagittarius need to understand that with speed, their efficiency decreases. They would benefit a lot more if they engaged in fewer activities, but paid more attention to each of them.

An additional benefit they can derive from a slower pace of action is that they would have more time to consider the consequences of their actions. In this way Sun in Sagittarius would be able to evolve and develop more tact, thoughtfulness and caution – qualities they desperately need.

Sun in Sagittarius Career

astrology cheatsheets

sun in sagittarius

In terms of their careers, Sun in Sagittarius do not like to stick to restrictions. Many of them experiment by jumping from one job to another. It is very important for Sun in Sagittarius that their job puts them in front of certain challenges. Otherwise, they would very quickly get bored and disappointed in their career.

The type of workplace is also pretty important for Sagittarians. A small cabin in a crowded shared office, doing monotonous work in front of the computer can very quickly throw them off balance. Money alone isn’t a special motivation for them, either.

We have already mentioned that most Sun in Sagittarius representatives are born under a lucky star. This also applies to the financial sphere.

Usually when they need money for something, they manage to find it in one way or another. That is why in their profession they look not so much for high incomes, but for opportunities for personal growth, development and philosophical improvement.

Sun in Sagittarius spend most their money on books, educational seminars or trips abroad than to buy luxury and expensive, but unnecessary items.

Many Sagittarians try to advance in their career by taking a shortcut, but they should avoid this approach. The problem is that even if they are appointed to a responsible position without enough experience, their chances of making grandiose mistakes are high due to serious gaps in their knowledge and skills.

Sun in Sagittarius Health

astrology cheatsheets

sun in sagittarius

Like the other fire signs of the Zodiac, Sun in Sagittarius progress with great zeal and enthusiasm, but they rarely know when to stop. When this quality of theirs begins to manifest itself in their diet, some potential problems are clearly noted.

Usually they think that because they spend a lot of energy, they are allowed to eat whatever they want. However, this is not the case at all. So, they do have to be careful with the food they eat if they don’t want the main keyword for Sagittarius “expansion” to be very specific physically.

The proverbial carelessness of Sun in Sagittarians should be borne in mind when they engage in sports and exercise.

Stretched tendons and minor injuries occur quite often. This is especially true for the pelvis and thighs, as this is the area, governed by this sign. Fortunately for them, good luck accompanies them here as well. They rarely get a really serious injury, and if that does happen, they recover relatively quickly.

Sun in Sagittarius Children

astrology cheatsheets

sun in sagittarius

Sagittarius children usually dislike school discipline. However, they do follow some of the established rules and restrictions, provided that it is explained to them with logical arguments why they are needed. Even then, however, there is a certain inner resistance in them due to the fiery nature of their sign.

Sun in Sagittarius children should be encouraged to absorb new information from an early age. This would stimulate their intellect and desire to expand and develop knowledge.

Sun in Sagittarius Parents

astrology cheatsheets

sun in sagittarius

As parents, Sun in Sagittarius do great. They encourage their children to develop their inborn skills and talents. Early on, they start buying various books for educational purposes.

Sun in Sagittarius parents love outdoor sports, going out in nature, traveling and communicating with large animals.

For example, they love horseback riding. They also like long walks. This makes them feel free, and they have an innate need to feel that way. Sun in Sagittarius try to teach their children a similar relaxed lifestyle.

Sun in Sagittarius Love and Relationships

astrology cheatsheets

sun in sagittarius

Sun in Sagittarius need to feel free and unrestricted in their personal relationships as well. No true representative of this sign can last long in a claustrophobic home atmosphere. They are in need of a house with a wide view and if possible a large yard.

Sun in Sagittarius cannot last long in a relationship if they are constantly suffocated by their partner’s hugs and needs. They are romantic, but they need their partner to be philosophically and intellectually minded and give them enough freedom in the relationship.

Sun in Sagittarius are not jealous and do not understand very well why some can show this quality so strongly. They would like to be able to flirt sometimes. This does not necessarily mean that they would cheat. For them, intellectual communication often takes precedence over physical intimacy.

The proverbial superficiality of Sagittarius speaks for itself in their love life. Believing that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, they can embark on completely unwarranted adventures, just to prove to themselves that they are free. By doing so, they could cause great emotional damage to their family members.

Sun in Sagittarius behavior in relationships can be better evaluated by looking at the location of Venus and Mars by sign and house, as well as the aspects they make. In general, Sagittarians love much more the process of ‘fishing’ than catching a particular fish.

While still young, Sun in Sagittarius follow their instincts and are most likely attracted to the sexual side of things. This is perfectly normal for a fire sign. As the years go by, however, they modify their criteria. They begin to prioritize qualities such as intellect, prudence, philosophical bias, and, at best, wisdom. As the years go by, they increasingly look for someone to reflect their own intellectual pursuits and interests. Then they strive not so much for a sexual partner, but rather a friend and companion in life.

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